Buh Bye Alert: Susan Rice Drops Out Of Running For Secretary of State

Screen Shot 2012-12-13 at 6.23.13 PMBy Ed Henry- U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice has removed her name from consideration for secretary of state, saying she does not want to put the administration through a “lengthy, disruptive and costly” confirmation process.

The move followed weeks of controversy on Capitol Hill over the possibility of her nomination, with Republicans threatening to block Rice from the post over concerns about her September comments on the Libya terror attack. Some lawmakers continue to charge that Rice misled the American people when she said on Sept. 16 that the attack was the result of a “spontaneous” demonstration spun out of control.

President Obama, in a written statement Thursday, called those claims “unfair and misleading” but said he accepts her decision.

“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,” Obama said.

Rice, in a letter to Obama Thursday, said she remains “fully confident” she could have served as an effective secretary of state but suggested the confirmation process would have hurt the administration.

“That trade-off is simply not worth it to our country,” Rice wrote. She went on to say “I am saddened that we have reached this point, even before you have decided whom to nominate.”

    So, she’ll be rewarded with a different plum job. She should be fired by the American public. But they were foolish enough to re-elect the guy responsible for the lying, why should we hold our breath waiting for accountability from this Administration?

    Yep, I can see her at Buchenwald.
    She’s not loyal to America. Her loyalty is to those really in power, behind the scenes.
