Washington - Republican senators who met with U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice on Tuesday said they would not support any nomination of her to a higher post until questions about the administration’s response to the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, were answered.

Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Kelly Ayotte met behind closed doors with Rice for about an hour and said they were still troubled by her responses to their questions about her early comments following the September 11, 2012, attack that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans.

Rice is considered a possible contender for secretary of state in President Barack Obama’s second term, a position that would require Senate confirmation.

Now let's watch a few things here.

1. The liberal socialist media will label this issue racial, and this is certainly not the case.

2. Words are amazing. All politicians do it, but liberals are far beyond tolerance on this. Obama has demonstrated the uncanny ability to make things sound really wonderful. Trouble is that these verbal expressions are nothing but a facade. Rice has that ability, as all liberals do, and she will say all the right things to make all believe that she was not only not incorrect/lying on the subject, but that her utterances represent the best that politics can offer. She will make herself sound like the greatest of the righteous, a Founding Mother. If, we possess the ability to see through the bluff, we will recognize the severe lack of professionalism that should be a basic requirement for public office.

John McCain wouldn't support pulling up his pants until his shoes were hard to see. I think that this GOP we have today is more obstructionalist than reality based.

This is certainly not the case because you say so? How about me saying that in your case, it's all about race? But, of course, you're too much of a coward to admit it!

You think that labeling it racial will change the fact that she lied about Bengazi/ It won't work.

Yes its racial. If you watched any of the debate or checked it you know that every politician lies all the time about 90% of the time. Its not a crime unless its under oath.

All of the 9/11 murderers were Saudis and lived here under expired student visas and the FBI and CIA each kept their information for themselve , probably due to the liberal socialist media Prince Bandar was a frequent guest at the Texas ranch and had a large mansion in Vail Colorado all a conspiration by the liberal socialist media

Labeling it racist serves to label you and your kind as feral bigots, which you don't have the courage to admit- do you? You say that Ambassador Rice lied, but the truth is that you and other rabid racists like you are the liars, and will always be as long as an African American occupies the White House, something you cannot live with! Your boy Romney and your GOP/Baggers (KKK) have always been, and will always be the true losers!

Having the RIGHT words is the key to prosperity and trust. Your reflection that this is "evil" is really an example of wrong intellectual aim.

You are only bothered by my post Esther, because you yourself have racist tendencies, and as always, are too cowardly to admit to them!. One of the reasons they made this country is so that you don't have to read what you don't want to read. If my posts upset you this much, don't read them!

While I believe in liberal policies, your candid shot at the dishonor of the GOP was really not exactly the most constructive way to post your sentiments. Shooting them in their sorry place is not the way to share the way of a Jewish Soul's interest in political life.

"Shooting them in their sorry place is not the way to share the way of a Jewish Soul's interest in political life."

Oh, pardon me. I wasn't aware that you are the official expert in how a 'Jewish Soul' shares his interest in political life. The GOP/Baggers (KKK) is the party of voting suppression, death panels, WMD's in Iraq, Sharia law in West Rattlesnake, WY, a Kenyan born, socialist, Mau Mau sympathizer, anti-colonial, Muslim President who is bent on destroying the USA, etc., etc. If they are so much against big government and big government spending, where were they when Bush was President? As soon as this President was elected to office, the GOP sold out to the John Birchers in the hopes that racism would propel them into the White House again, a card they have been playing ever since. Rather than being proud that this country could elect a minority member to the White House, they pledged to make President Obama a one termer, and stood in the way of everything he proposed, and are still doing the same! Is part of being a 'Jewish Soul' the obligation of recognizin the truth, without deluding yourself? My shot at the GOP was anything but candid and from the hip!
