97 House GOPers Sign Letter Urging Obama To Pass On Rice At State
MONDAY NOVEMBER 19, 2012
97 House Republicans signed a letter urging President Obama to pass on the possible nomination of U.N. ambassador Susan Rice as a replacement to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday, taking issue with Rice's involvement with the deadly attacks upon Americans in Benghazi, Libya, the Hill reports. If Obama decided to go forth with Rice at State, however, it would be up to the Senate to confirm her.
Where are the jobs? We were promised jobs by the 2010 House victors.
[bold]WHAT[/bold] involvement??!?! She read a fucking prepared statement based on what they knew at the time.
And Obama needs to give a rat's ass what Rethugs think because....
Most House Republicans would sign a letter urging Obama to pass on Karl Rove at State. They're not very bright, those House Republicans.
This crap needs to be slammed down hard now. There may be reasons to not feel Rice is appropriate but over Benghazi is not one of the rational ones.
Surely this is the biggest possible bump her chances of the job could get?
was this a "Dear colleague" letter? Because those usually take several weeks to get everyone signed on.
I guess it's different if it's a partisan matter.
I wish they'd post the names.
Obama needs to keep that pair he grew and not let the GOP castrate him again.
Why would the GOP be so against Rice anyways?
She has already done the job during the Bush administration.
Our Rice is much prettier than their gnarly toothed corporate whore in jackboots.
If he does cave there better be something he's getting in return that is better than getting her appointed. Like a massive jobs bill I'd go for that.
Susan Rice sucks.
Anne Rice sucks.
Who gives a shit what House Republicans think about a Democratic cabinet nomination?
Minute Rice sucks.
Oh, set it to the grand piano you closeted, lesbian hag(r12).
Does Susan refer to Barack as her husband the way Condileeza referred to W.?
These are all the loony tunes reps. The somewhat promising news is that there are 100+ other Republicans who obviously didn't sign.
LOL at them pretending to be civil and cooperative.
"Liberal" media: Again the Republican shut down the first option Obama offers...
House Rethugs: BUT, BUT SEE WE ASKED NICELY! OBAMA ISN'T COOPERATING WITH US! bwaaaaaaahh!
