So responding to the big guys -- -- President Obama said Susan Rice had the best Intel.
Intel available at that.
-- -- -- -- The best Intel available the White House cater knew this was a terror attack before Obama and rice did stop -- Bob.
Does the president the president lands some of their actions on the fog of war while claiming to be perfectly clear on others.
This is the sort of excuse to get for McCain who broke -- base only hear it wasn't a -- it was American lives Obama knows Obama doesn't know who knows certainly not us.
And money -- it and she's getting impatient despite Obama's -- explanations and tough guy act at the lectern.
The whole affair makes as much sense as a left -- frying pan.
Remember Obama claims he called a -- -- the day after yet rice said it wasn't which Obama says.
What's his position.
Which leads back to -- said blame the video.
Guess we now know was Obama who -- with his foreign policy is -- phone from years of community organizing.
In Chicago we also learned the value of phony outrage.
Monitors -- -- whose rights she has done exemplary work.
She made an appearance.
At the request of the White House.
In which she.
Gave her best.
Of the intelligence that had been provided to -- If Senator McCain.
And senator Graham and others want to go after somebody they should go after me.
But for them to go after.
The UN ambassador.
Who had nothing to do -- doesn't.
And with simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received.
And -- divert besmirch her reputation.
And what's going on here is she roster -- Rachel appointed episode of friends.
His rage over criticism of then Ghazi far exceeds his rage over been Ghazi.
-- to me it's got a sexist Obama casts himself as rice's protector with the juvenile bravado that scared only be NPR correspondent.
He's outrage that they're picking honor.
What he doesn't think she can take ever self we have offered the same protection to a male ambassador seeping -- Andrea do you think -- anger is legitimate.
I mean now let me think about that.
-- He stood up there and he said come after me -- very easy to say in a roomful of reporters that he knows.
That won't come after him and it's ironic he said it is protecting Susan Rice but it was OK to make Hillary you're human shield to take the fall -- -- Ghazi.
And -- -- not matter animated prepared for all roads all roads in this blame game shift back to the CIA in the very beginning and yesterday Charles Krauthammer suggested.
That the federal government may have -- the affair that Petraeus had to influence what he told congress on nobody knows if that's true and Petraeus will testify.
However you have to wonder why everyone kept when he -- a CIA CIA that are regionally got it right that it was a terrorist attack.
That why they changed the story about Nvidia.
If they if if they didn't.
If it's of rumor or exit the area from the writes about -- -- sit by scrap have a say it is nothing basin on.
What you do little -- Well -- when I do.
They paid no taxes that -- gives -- no thanks.
But the point here is he's exactly right these people could not tell you two things about Susan -- they picked out this one thing.
Well -- -- -- -- -- didn't think that she never once had alleged terrorist by the way -- statements are adamant and then what you said it was a terrorist.
Senator John McCain has a goes.
That has known her for many years and known her work.
And the raise questions about President Bush's pick for UN ambassador which has John Bolton and he vigorously opposed it.
And Senator McCain has every right to do that as well and I do think it was but if I had been in that position is Susan Rice I would have been very.
And bullied by the fact that President Obama defended me you know loyalty does go both ways I think that they have a little bit of a problem here that does their one of the reasons the story keeps that it is because.
They're refusing to recognize that there are legitimate questions yeah and they they they try to make it political when it actually every day and more facts -- -- that make it look worse for them.
Can't let somebody out -- I don't like Hillary Clinton's politics I don't like Bill Clinton's politics ever let anyone -- -- well.
-- -- breakthrough Hillary Clinton was a good secretary of state.
She was someone that I wanted over their pitchers -- -- she she she did my -- and she had ideas she thought about things he did it her way here's my point.
Won't be Hillary Clinton Susan Rice will be a mouthpiece for President Obama and not the American people I would hope I don't know yeah.
Immigrated here it was just let's celebrate -- associate McCain and and Graham hatch is probably did they vote for her for -- Welcome my guess is they'll -- uncertain.
The UN -- are.
And that's never the -- hated Bolton which is what Bolton was great -- and when I -- loves you they like somebody that they can roll over they did they may have voted for her yeah but that was part of her lying to five different news organizations are at -- possibly -- -- -- This did that -- committee itself said the Democrat leadership said that.
That was the same intelligence in the house committee got the day before she ten when you say that -- specifically -- -- -- doesn't ship it.
I'm -- you know every.
The intelligence committee released the following statement what they were given what you're the one who was always -- talking about who are these sources who are they name on the give us names -- -- -- We put that we talked about pres Obama's kill list who are the sources.
Who would be -- the guy says this is at all if he said I got -- of the national housing secretary I wanna get to what real claims aren't in that but no matter how many times you read that paper at all.
I think being at a bar with two guys argue over -- -- all right.
Congressman Cliburn really quick I had this to say about attorney Susan Rice.
Senator is he said -- as a congressman.
-- this -- -- Susan Rice.
I have a real real problem.
Monsignor cemented it.
Trying to make her scapegoat in this I think it's absolutely ashamed for this young women whose roots are deep in soft on us soil.
To get solid goodness about my senior -- throughout the -- would be a good friend.
-- Talk about motive here I mean why does is this hostility.
Today is young but the public servant what are they treat her like -- -- -- a punch but that's exactly right this young African American woman -- promote say.
All right so with the rights that we got -- race into the picture I always think that.
Sometimes I'm happy to see the race card because that means.
It's proof that we might be getting closer to the truth is -- close to the truth that comes out as a defense I think everyone goes.
I don't think that story -- is going anywhere soon I really -- and it actually hurts real instances of racism.
If you're gonna pull the race card in the woman card all the time actually hurts when there is discrimination but there are legitimate reasons to be upset with Susan Rice and -- -- is.
That reason and I I -- -- I don't know what Hillary Clinton did that was so great.
I don't know what Susan Rice did that was so great tip and have her be promoted to this position about the direction they're going they took the Middle East out of Hillary's portfolio.
And they watered it down and they gave her the Congo I've seen her doing and running in Anaconda what has she done she's done a lot of the machine on her I -- -- -- a -- It's been a joke that a joke as hard to get -- yeah that's why we're here.
It is just one word though.
Appended to words yet to -- Rick -- now -- -- -- name former -- and -- That is worth reading forget even if you just take -- and Ghazi there would be legitimate reasons as a US senator to question whether or not this be the best players in each.
That there should be based on the -- Gregory and that was a bad is bad that -- say but the nobody knows anything about this is after the speech you're talking about.
-- -- -- some reason she should be secretary of state the size intelligence -- given that report of their.
Glad to Israel -- -- by whom what -- gonna move on.
Alec within eighteen is like a teacher she was your homework.
After I gotta read this article I -- some other stuff to -- -- book I haven't gotten it rob.
