UN Ambassador Susan Rice has withdrawn her name from consideration for Secretary of State, saying the criticism surrounding her comments on Benghazi had become an “irresponsible distraction.”

“I am fully confident that I could serve our country ably and effectively in that role,” Rice wrote in a letter to President Obama today. “However, if nominated, I am now convinced that the confirmation process would be lengthy, disruptive and costly – to you and to our most pressing national and international priorities.”

Rice has been criticized by Republicans for her response to questions on the Sunday talk shows shortly after the terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi killed four Americans.

    Because the Obama asked her to, he knew that if he pushed it hearing would expose the trutyh of his incompetance and lies. So he had her fall on her sword after lieing to save his re election

    I am surprised. I should have seen it coming. But it seems so unfair. She'd have made a great Secretary of State.

    Most liberals when caught in a lie usually don't give a crap what others think. And usually when they lie and are extremely controversial they are looked up to by their constituents.

    Im not surprised look how she was treated.This will probably backfire on the Republicans for bullying a woman and a black woman at that.The Republicans just keep steping in it.

    Do you accept Condi Rice's lies ?
    There was no mushroom cloud or smoking gun and Colin Powell admitted he was lied to by W.

    The majority of Congress approved the war with Iraq.. As I post Obama has send 3000 troops to Iraq, and troops to Turkey. Has a undeclared war with Syria
    and Libya, and has poured millions of dollars into the take over of Egypt. All for the brotherhood. And hundred of thousand have died. Good Day))))

    Do you realize how much your idiotic rhetoric undercuts any legitimate point you may have been attempting to make? Being 100% honest, anything you say after your "dear leader" snipe will now be dismissed as the ramblings of a deranged person - including the lame, recycled, regurgitated, far right spew of vitriol you're about to fire at me.

    Are you serious, she deliberately lied to the people in order to cover Obamas butt. How can you people blame Republicans for a blatant lie while not saying one thing about the death of our people?
    I can only Imagine if Palin had done the same, you would probably have hung her.

    Susan was reapting what was told to her by the Intel agency.Condi was Secretary of state she knew exactlly what she was doing and never thought the American would question W and his administration.

    Give me a break, the common people of the country could see what was going on, are you that nieve to believe that stupid story. If it were true what you are saying than she would have taken that job in a heart beat. That has to be the second most prestigious and powerful job anyone could have. She isn't taking the job because there will be an investigation into it and the truth will be revealed. Obama threw her under the bus and offered the job to clear her name knowing that she would not take it, it was all set up that way. It is totally nieve to believe that a few comments from the right steered her from that position. Since when do the liberals ever care or listen to the right in the first place?

    You're right! Black people and especially black women can say whatever they want, truth or lie and no one has the right to call them on it. EVER! Glad you cleared that up for these people here.

    Racist!!! You're the only one here who mentioned her race or gender, neither of which matter to conservatives. The only thing that matters is o-blame-o told her to lie to cover up the murder of Americans which he allowed to happen.

    My point was if your going to accuse Susan of not being honest about intel then Condi wasnt honest either only she knew she wasnt.Susan's not Secretary of State but Condi was and it led us into mess in Iraq.

    But you do know that it was the right and NOT the left that put the 1st ever black SOS in office and the 1st black woman SOS in office right? The left claims they are the party of inclusion but have set a remarkably low record for putting minorities in office. Especially when compared to the right. And this is taking into account that over 90% of blacks go to the left. So with the remaining 1/10th the right has put more in office than the left. So how are they racist?

    Is it also funny to you that they don’t tolerate white people that are not conservative? Or that the left is just as intolerant of all people (Blacks especially) on the right? Or do you need to leave that out to keep up the false image that the right is racist?
  • Shylee william... 2012/12/14 18:30:28

    I dont have a problem with you and calling me a racist is over the top.

    We have a black president and i've seen hows hes treated.I know how the right treats people its unaccecptable to me and if your not white your not right your just tolerated.Its disgusting.

    I never called you anything. You have me confused with another poster. And did you call the minority left racist for attacking Bush? Or how about how the Right went after Clinton? Was that racist too? This whole "They hate Obama because he is black" is just nonsense and you know it.
