And it goes on. Every time the President nominates some people to top jobs, there is always at least one that the other party goes after. Then the media makes a big deal out of it as if it has never happened before.

She lied to the American people and skipped out on several important votes including one on defending Israel from terrorists. Any questions?

Nobody's been nominated, and Clinton hasn't resigned. Why don't they put some energy into real and present issues like the budget? Oh, right, it's easier to try to distract the public.

Republicans just don't like the President. It's time for the American people to say they've had enough of their whining.

At least two of these Senators now complaining about Susan Rice had absolutely no problem confirming Condi Rice as SoS, AFTER she held the position of National Security Adviser on 9/11 AND helped lie us into a DISASTROUS war in Iraq. Susan Rice, meanwhile, had NOTHING to do with Benghazi or the security at the consulate (or the lack thereof), and simply said on the Sunday shows what the intelligence community thought had happened up to that point. For these Senators to oppose Susan Rice when they had no problem with Condi Rice is just outrageous!

She towed the party line on the Sunday shows by making false proclamations about how Americans died. I think what is worse is her demonstrated anti-Israel past. Israel is a small country, about the size of New Hampshire, that is surrounded by twenty-two islamist nations. Israel deserves our support.

Has the media asked her why she has investments in companies that do business with Iran? Why should we allow a woman who is in the 1% to be in a position of so much power? Why would we allow someone who knowingly lies to protect obama this position? Why do liberals look the other way at all of this?

What is partisan about wanting someone qualified for the job, instead of a shill for the most transparent administration in history? Nothing but truth and transparency from this one. Her statements had nothing to do with an upcomoing election, and I am sure that nobody in a position of power knew anyone asked for help.

Why should we allow a woman who is in the 1% to be in a position of so much power? - The difference between someone in the liberal 1% and someone in the conservative 1%, is that the liberals mean well, although they don't ever deliver results, it's the thought that counts. Remember, they feel good about themselves when they spend your money.

I've never understood why the administration sent a U.N. Ambassador to explain the source of a terrorist attack. Too many questions on her qualifications and motives for her incorrect Benghazi statements. This isn't about playing politics, its about finding the absolute best person for a crucial position. Ms. Rice doesn't have it.
