House Republicans "deeply troubled" by Rice

Nearly 100 House Republicans submitted a letter to President Obama today warning him against nominating U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice to succeed Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, accusing Rice of "having either willfully or incompetently misled the American public in the Benghazi affair." blah blah blah

House Repubs are also deeply troubled by math, science, facts, gays, women, non christians, non whites...etc.

And I really think they should all be committed to their home state mental facilities where they can get the mental help they so dearly need! Lock them up and throw away the key!

4. The Republican Party sure seem to be troubled by competence.

 

Especially competent women.

Memories of Todd Akin thinking abound.

7. The Republicans' love of the Constitution and attention to its protocols is so refreshing!

Let's take a quick look at Article II 2 2:

... and he shall nominate, and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, shall appoint ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, judges of the Supreme Court, and all other officers of the United States, whose appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by law: but the Congress may by law vest the appointment of such inferior officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the courts of law, or in the heads of departments ...

Bug off, morons!

8. Ambassador Rice has displayed nothing but competence and class

The President is right to stick by her.

These 100 MF'ers don't even get a vote on confirming her. That is the Senate's job.

9. I don'think she should be chosen just because the President,

has been doubled dared. Repubs are playing a bit of politics with this, but maybe she isn't the best person for the job.

25. Based on........?

It's up to the Senate and to us to evaluate her if and when the President nominates her. If she's qualified, fine, if she's not, she's not. President Obama has been put in a damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don't position over this by Graham & McCain. If he chooses to nominate her, then he will appear that he did it as a knee jerk reaction to McCain and Graham's statements and if he doesn't, he will look like he caved. I will just trust him to make the appointment that he feels is in the country's best interests. Of course, given that McCain is now saying that he won't support ANYBODY to fill the SOS position once it empties, it should be pretty clear that he just throwing a nonsensical temper tantrum at this point unless he gets what he wants.

14. This is a perfect example of what the American voter DID NOT want when they voted for Obama.

They expressly told us they didn't want any more of this sh*t. They want real work on real problems, not this game playing. This is a charade and you'd think Graham and McCain would know that the people are simply NOT interested (beyond their own narrow echo chamber that is).

They really don't get it, do they?

26. Got news for you.

Republicans will be "deeply troubled" by anyone who isn't John Bolton, Donald Rumsfeld, or Dick Cheney. In other words, Obama should nominate their choice of SOS, not his own.

Rice for her 9/11 incompetence failure by giving her an upgrade to SOS. Oh wait, that was Condaleeza Rice.

31. Some talking points for us to use.

1) One of the most vocal against Dr Rice is NY Representative Pete King. Not one of the signers. Why?

2) How many of those signing were defeated or didn't run? They won't be part of the new Congress.

3) As pointed out by others. They don't get to approve any appointments.

32. So I believe we need to pick off, what, about 17 of them in 2014?

Then the headline..."House Republicans who were deeply troubled have been freed to seek appropriate care."

Let the 2014 Hit List begin.

Besides, the House has nothing to do with it so they can bloviate all they want.
