McCain criticizing the qualifications of Ambassador Rice? I don't recall him criticizing Gen Powell for making the statements about WMD based on information he was given. And he is not able to make good judgements about qualifications given the selection of his own running mate.

Racist and sexist? Is this woman of color not able to play in the big leagues without people bringing up her race and sex as a shield? The truth is the UN Ambassador was run out to do the work of the Sec of State and ended up doing the political bidding of the President. All rather insulting to Susan Rice personally, and black women in general really.

According to the left ANY AND ALL criticism of any minority member (as long as they are liberal) and any female (as long as she is liberal) is a RACIST or SEXIST attack. The Left is insufferable and pathetic.

John McCain and Lindsey Graham are trying to exploit for political purposes a national tragedy in which an American ambassador died. To borrow a quote from McCain, "When anyone, not least a member of Congress, launches specious and degrading attacks against fellow Americans on the basis of nothing more than fear of who they are and ignorance for what they stand for, it defames the spirit of our nation and we all grow poorer because of it."

"John McCain and Lindsey Graham are trying to exploit for political purposes a national tragedy in which an American ambassador died"... Not quite. John McCain and Lindsey Graham are trying to shed some light on a national tragedy in which an American President and a slough of his staff LIED and ambassador and thres other AMERICANS DIED.

Nov. 16, 1212:25 PM John McCain and Lindsey Graham are trying to exploit for political purposes a national tragedy in which an American ambassador died. To borrow a quote from McCain, "When anyone, not least a member of Congress, launches specious and degrading attacks against fellow Americans on the basis of nothing more than fear of who they are and ignorance for what they stand for, it defames the spirit of our nation and we all grow poorer because of it." ============================== You tried the same tactic on Romney. The facts are showing more after General Paetrus' testimony that this Administration covered up its inaction that got the ambassador killed. Yes, its a national tragedy, but the worst tragedy is that the biased press is not following it and geniuses like you are ignoring all the evidence that Obama covered this up. And what "political purpose" does McCain or Graham have. You can't just throw that accusation out there without explaining what the purpose is. Wake up and take your partisan blinders off. This president scammed the country and its time he own up to it. And this Rice puppet should be canned!

President Obama to Jon Stewart, October 18, 2012. "...have always tried to do is just get all the facts figure out what went wrong and make sure it doesn’t happen again and we’re still in that process now. But every piece of information that we got as we got it we laid it out for the American people"... We all now know that that every piece of information that we got as we got it WAS NOT laid it out for the American people. Thust the President LIED. There is simply no arguing against this fact.

roadtoruin: "The Left is insufferable and pathetic." How sad that you think that this type of attack is somehow American. There are many Americans who don't agree with the right wing. Join with the rest of us to find solutions rather than demonize those you don't understand or agree with. You are, in fact, the road to ruin.

Mc'Cain is just an angry old man. Still ticked cuz O'bama handed him his butt. Mc'cain supported Rice's mushroom cloud info. It was ok then. Time for Ol John to hang it up. He's had a free ride for decades!

Funny how you can say anything you want about a republican like Palin or Bachman (I am not a fan of either) but if you say something about a democratic you are either racist or sexist.
