Obama Accepts Rice’s Decision To Withdraw

Source: TPM



IGOR BOBIC 3:53 PM EST, THURSDAY DECEMBER 13, 2012

President Obama on Thursday announced that he has accepted UN Ambassador Susan Rice's decision to withdraw her name from consideration to replace Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State:

Today, I spoke to Ambassador Susan Rice, and accepted her decision to remove her name from consideration for Secretary of State. For two decades, Susan has proven to be an extraordinarily capable, patriotic, and passionate public servant. As my Ambassador to the United Nations, she plays an indispensable role in advancing America’s interests. Already, she has secured international support for sanctions against Iran and North Korea, worked to protect the people of Libya, helped achieve an independent South Sudan, stood up for Israel’s security and legitimacy, and served as an advocate for UN reform and the human rights of all people. I am grateful that Susan will continue to serve as our Ambassador at the United Nations and a key member of my cabinet and national security team, carrying her work forward on all of these and other issues. I have every confidence that Susan has limitless capability to serve our country now and in the years to come, and know that I will continue to rely on her as an advisor and friend. While I deeply regret the unfair and misleading attacks on Susan Rice in recent weeks, her decision demonstrates the strength of her character, and an admirable commitment to rise above the politics of the moment to put our national interests first. The American people can be proud to have a public servant of her caliber and character representing our country.

2. Well, last I heard she did have a choice. What that means remains to be seen.

As I always do, I suspect there are things going on behind the scenes that it's impossible for us to appreciate. If her life was to be made miserable and she would in fact be a source of endless GOP bullshit, then her withdrawal, whether her actual idea or not, is a manipulable item. The GOP will try to push it one way, the Dems another, and we'll see what happens.

6. Precisely, nolabear.. nothing to do with Prez' "mandate"..

“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 wrote in a letter to President Obama, saying she’s saddened by the partisan politics surrounding her prospects.

37. We've watched the bullies for four years now, and nothing every happens.

Sometimes you have to bloody a few noses before the bullies get the message. It seems like the President is unwilling to do that.

I voted for him twice, as did all my family, and my husband worked countless hours at one of his phonebanks. I'm tired of waiting for him to stand up to the bullies.

the inference in your post. Obama should have been able to choose who he wanted. Will this seeming capitulation to the Repubs come back to haunt Obama? I don't know, but, for sure, Obama doesn't need another one.

with President Obama's "mandate". Susan had a choice and she chose to pull her name from nomination. I don't think the Bullies won, either... they have a way of getting Backlash that isn't always apparent at first.

26. I don't see it the way you do. I view it as a hiring decision. I was a Regional Controller for

 

a large corporation. If I liked someone and had studied their work and productivity, I would hire them. If they declined using "good of the company reasoning" I might question if they think I did not have the good of the company belief for my hiring decision. I quite frankly don't believe that Rice made her bow-out of her own volition. But that's simply my belief based on like-kinds of decisions I have seen over the last four years. I don't know what BOF stands for. My "seeming capitulation" characterization is how I think the media and the Republican Party may view it. I'll know if I was right in a few days.

33. Your stellar career bona fides, notwithstanding, sometimes a duck is just a duck. Susan Rice has...

a teevee, just like the rest of us. She made the rounds on Capitol Hill, and her reception was one of prejudgement and opposition, and it stands to reason that she came to the conclusion that she wouldn't be able to overcome the preconceived notions of that opposition. Why would anyone put themselves through a fight they don't think they can win? And if she feels this way, why would the president put her through such a circus? For your amusement, and to prove what point exactly?

35. Here ya go. This will be part of my answer. As others have said here: Did we just have an election?

 

Susan Rice was just another opportunity to display steadfastness, my potential amusement notwithstnanding. To show one is a winner by action and deed. When you plant your flag at the top of the hill, you don't then set it on fire. Like I said, I view things differently than you. I was Ike. You may have been more Clinton. No harm, no foul.

45. That still doesn't answer the question I put to you. Should the POTUS put forward the name of.....

someone who has bowed out? I'm still scratching my head to come up with a reason the President would put her through that. She said NO. She withdrew her name, and all the speculation to the contrary makes you look foolish as the people who initially attacked her. She's a brilliant woman, who's been around DC for a couple of decades now. I imagine she can read tea leaves as well as any politico. Besides, she was being attacked on the left for having financial ties to the XL pipeline, so there are many reasons why she would choose to drop out, that have absolutely nothing to do with the president.

47. Okay. You've muddied your stream a little with your slight question change at the beginning of this

 

post, so I'll demur. The tone has now been set for January and possibly the next four years. I'll side with the DUer's who have claimed surrender. Remember, I maintain this position even though I can't stand Rice. She's a neocon who has sided with those favoring among other things slavery. She is arrogant in attitude and tone. It would have been like Spock becoming SOS. So, we have this issued resolved. You maintain your position, same as me maintaining mine. Somewhere a bunch of inverse fascists are smiling.

If Obama wanted her to stay in she would have stayed in. If Obama wanted her out she would be told to write a statement of withdrawal. She wants to stay in the circles of power so she will go along with what the White House wants.

I'm a political scientist by trade, and I've heard more average Americans having discussions about the "fiscal cliff," filibusters, and redistricting.

I'm not suggesting that these are widespread discussions, but we must do our part too.

I even vote absentee if I will be away from my polling place. Perhaps I care more about what happens than some others do. But to each his own, just remember if you don't vote, don't gripe!

A large chunk proved they did have a place to go: home. More caving is going to further alienate the base and could cause the collapse of the party altogether.

This is about the average voter. The average voter needs a reason to go to the polls. 2008 was a huge reason... post Bush presidency... first Black (major) candidate... etc. in 2000-4 it was the marriage equality boogie man. Everyone needs a cause to be motivated to the polls. Some of us are lucky enough to find that motivation from within and vote every time, others do not. We need to motivate people to vote.

49. Dan Rather

was just jumping on PBO for being "weak" etc. etc. Not sure what he has against the President, but he really criticized him big time. I think Obama stood by Rice as much as he could without having this whole thing strung out when there is so much else going on. I think Rather was WAY off base.

62. Rather has been anti-Obama for years now. He felt it "in his gut" that Romney would win.

On every show he's on, he has nothing good to say about the president at all. Surprised he's not on Faux.

52. I think there is something we don't know about this story...

President Obama's statement was very nice.
