On so the day since the attack on our consulate in -- Ghazi lawmakers are still waiting for answers from the administration on its failure to say for Americans.
And on this half -- mark relaying that ambassador Susan Rice who withdrew from consideration for secretary of state over -- -- Is now the leading contender to be national security advisor.
Let's not official cabinet cousin does require senate confirmation but the person in that position -- a major hand in shaping the president's foreign policy.
So what do you think about this -- round table on.
Really really really really important position even though it's -- -- need senate confirmation.
In the national security advisors part of the National Security Council is President Obama heads.
Regular attendees are vice president secretary of state treasury.
On -- down -- -- cabinet heads it's an extremely important position now this is a woman who either didn't know was either misinformed or help.
Carried the water for a a dialogue that -- the video after being -- when she very well knew had nothing to do with the video.
Very concerning that this is the one who's going to be in that meeting.
Both of those are bad choices whether -- united to go ahead and along with the administration's talking points and so this is the reward for her getting but and that compromising position mr.
backed off well at first vote.
She's the only person I know who resigned to confirmation -- yen and -- for yet.
In other words she was not a list is as far as anybody knows -- sectors states it's as is Dana pointed at you get a very good public relations section allowed to leave it.
Secondly that security advisor is critical because that's it -- cross point in the white house of all things coming from -- say state.
My friend Tom Donald runs that office now.
He -- a one person that Obama wants to put into an embassy someplace that will be to -- -- skills that's what's holding Susan Rice a -- no that's his rush to get that job.
I'll and -- -- she's qualified and at that time I averaged don't know enough about it rationally she probably felt qualified generally yet been best and you and not -- But that is a cabinet position and President Obama made that position at cabinet secretary level position.
And so she has a seat at -- -- and other cabinet never meets.
That there are other important part of this job is congressional relations.
Condi Rice was President Bush's first national security advisor and then it was Steve Hadley.
I remember Hadley in particular -- -- to meet every morning at 6:30 AM sharp.
And we go over all that.
Goings on I would tell him I was hearing he would tell me what I needed to know because but the questions in the briefing room with a timer probably 90% foreign policy related.
But one -- the most important roles was congressional relations kind of congress explaining to them keeping them informed even for things that we're not supposed to be public yet but it.
Toxic and information has to get passed on to those committee chairs and she has some of the worst.
Congressional relations have anyone I have seen since she's got some repair work to do I know that the president and has full confidence of her because he had to say so when -- Was withdrew supposedly up for our secretary of state message do you feel that did she would be a good choice given her background her experience a good fit for -- position given what you told us I think.
That the president needs somebody that he can trust and he trusts her and that's.
His judgment call.
Let let me make one other point about to hit the hill and why this is so important.
Under the law that was passed -- some years ago -- -- created the intelligence act act the tests active pretty committees in both the senate and the house.
Every day a nice to have this job.
Yet to carry this step up to the chairman and the ranking member had a chance to review at all.
It's a very critically important job -- Donald has been doing most of that in the Obama white -- The stuff that gets stand up to Capitol Hill is really sensitive stuff leave me.
And so it is not an inconsequential job by any.
Let's like they have to act you're confident -- -- help was accurate well I.
That's that is coming up perfect position to find out who push the video.
Well that's I was just coming to mr.
Gutfeld about the video out mean but he it's a -- Tony this is a great thing about the government if your incompetent.
You never worry about losing your job there's always a place for a failure.
And by the way you called her failure if you say she's and company.
The problem with.
They've been Ghazi is the short attention span of the media -- -- basically is.
The old magazine in a dentist office that they they just passed throw aside if Americans had been killed and been -- by NRA members.
There'll be martz is every day but because that's not the case nobody cares these guys care more about Ben Affleck they've been -- And if you did if you disagree with me your worst -- -- it.
That was obviously always have people magazines in the end this fifty years old there's still interest in a panel that's just bizarre segment let's --
