Washington Post: Obama May Lose ‘Good Will’ of Republicans if He Nominates Rice

Post obviously confused; believes GOP has any ‘good will’
Politics • Views: 17,264

I’m agnostic about whether PBO should nominate Rice for Secretary of State after Hillary Clinton leaves Foggy Bottom next year, but this lead paragraph from a story in today’s Washington Post has to be about the most brain-dead thing from a non-RWNJ source I’ve read in months:

The choice of a successor to Hillary Rodham Clinton as secretary of state has turned into an unexpectedly nasty political fight that could cost the White House valuable goodwill with Republicans.

Seriously, Washington Post? There’s GOP “good will” for the White House? Have you been paying attention to anything in the past four years?

Sigh. This is why we can never have nice things.

If Obama entered Bo in a neighborhood dog show he would lose all the goodwill the TPGOP could muster. Scroo'm.

2 aagcobb  Thu, Nov 29, 2012 7:50:53am

I don't know how anyone at the Post could write that sentence with a straight face. Really, GOP goodwill for the WH? You have got to be kidding!

Not just goodwill, but "valuable goodwill". Riiiight.

Obviously that a sentence like this could have been written in 2012 means we have not progressed as far as a civilization as I had hoped.

Not to mention his losing the respect and admiration of all the teabaggers out there.

7 kirkspencer  Thu, Nov 29, 2012 8:13:12am

What is equally amusing is thinking of all the "president should get the cabinet he requests unless criminal" statements made in previous years.

On the other hand I think everyone is ignoring the elephant in the room - the filibuster modifications coming down the road. Rice won't get nominated till Clinton officially resigns (pending approval of her successor or not). And the Senator hold, which has been yet another source of annoyance, is not a rule. It is a gentleman's agreement which can be ignored - and I have no doubt the nomination of the Secretary of State would be big enough to trigger that fight.

So their zero tolerance behavior is burning up their brakes. The only thing holding now is Democrats concerned about the times they are out of power.

Very true. The article should have raised this point. //

The President had already seriously endangered his relationship with the GOP back in 2008 when he made the mistake of getting elected President. That was a faux pas that Republican just couldn't forgive him for.

And it didn't help that he had previously upset conservatives back in '61 with the highly controversial and divisive decision to be born the son of a black man in America.

If Rice is out of the Benghazigate spotlight, the White House will lose a considerable amount of Republican good wail.

The only 'goodwill' the Republicans could ever have would be a Goodwill down the street that they fought tooth and nail to get torn down.

Fuck 'em. They're not even in "Lucy with the football" territory anymore, they've outright told everyone they intend to be obstructionist leeches for the next four years. Just back the bus right over them and keep on truckin'.

I will laugh my ass off if any mention of Susan Rice is just a way to get the GOP to flail around like a bunch of howler monkeys.

These people are certifiable.

24 A Man for all Seasons  Thu, Nov 29, 2012 11:43:53am

This is pretty funny for sure..Maybe what the post means may be goodwill towards nominees. Maybe in the backrooms somebody is saying if you don't nominate Rice we won't give you shit on the rest of your nominees.

25 HappyWarrior  Thu, Nov 29, 2012 11:45:54am

Let's say they don't nominate Rice. I bet you McCain will still find something to bitch about because he's that pathetic at this point in his career. They'll look for anything and anyone associated with this administration to turn into a pathetic witchhunt. Because so many of them desire to look "conservative enough" so they won't get primaried and lose their power.

This is supposed to be seen as a veiled threat that if Obama does not back down on this one, they will grow even more obstructionist.

One possible explanation is that they want Obama to nominate Kerry instead of Rice so that his Senate seat becomes vacant and Scott Brown can get it back.

The choice of a successor to Hillary Rodham Clinton as secretary of state has turned into an unexpectedly nasty political fight that could cost the White House valuable goodwill with Republicans.

You'd think that bit I bolded would be why this should be written exactly the other way around. A president has just won reelection and already the opposition is back to total-war, scorched-earth partisan politicking. They're baselessly smearing someone the President admires & respects and feels loyalty to for the hard work she's done in his first term, and if he is planning on nominating her, they're essentially denying her the promotion he feels she deserves. They're also, immediately out of the post-election gate, challenging his presidential prerogative to pick the cabinet he wants, as well as any post election political capital he has earned for being endorsed by a majority of the country a second time. Finally they're pissing all over the increased Senate majority the Dems have won (being they're the only body of Congress that has the "advise and consent" role).

If the media is going to get out their smelling salts over anyone poisoning the well and burning away "good will," it clearly should be what the GOP has already done and is currently doing through this shameless partisan stunt.

Would that be ensured? I know Brown lost by a small margin in Massachusetts and was hurt by the fact it was a presidential year but I think the Democrats would beat him again because they've done it once now and two I think they would avoid the mistakes that led to him becoming Senator in the first place.

Back off, McCain and Graham and such. The big dogs of stupidity are entering the fray.

"This is gonna go down as the biggest coverup in history," Inhofe predicted during an appearance on Fox News. "The administration deliberately covered this up and misrepresented what happened in Benghazi."

Look, at this point, it is all about asociating certain terms with certain other ones

Benghazi = coverup

Sotomayor = racist
Democratic election victory = free stuff for underclasses

Egypt draft constitution limits presidential terms

The assembly drafting Egypt's new constitution voted on Thursday to limit the president's term of office to two four-year terms, ending the system of unlimited tenure during the era of ousted president Hosni Mubarak, who ruled for 30 years.

Members of the assembly approved the article in a final vote before the constitution draft is put to a public referendum within 15 days of the president's ratification.

Translation: accept the new constitution or Morsi remains in power.

Has Obama even officially mentioned Rice as a candidate to replace Clinton as SoS? I have the impression that this is part of the whole Mt Everest sized molehill constructed by the Party of Obama Obstruction.

I like the hardball approach across the board.

For example, the debt ceiling is easy --- Congress has passed inconsistent laws (spending bills that conflict with the debt ceiling). It is impossible for Obama to execute inconsistent laws, so he gets to choose which ones to follow. May as well make the choice that is likelier to cause coronaries in the House GOP delegation. Reference to the 16th amendment could be used to rub salt in the wounds.

They really do need more like him in their caucus. Honestly, if he wasn't so old, I think Lugar would be someone that would be considered. He and Obama are personal friends I believe and they worked together on one of Obama's first legislative acts when he joined the Senate.

I'm scratching my head over that. Surely Obama would nominate someone else if he gave in to their tactics, rather than lose a Senate seat? It's like the 'steps to profit' meme:

1. Rice blocked
2. ...
3. Kerry appointed, seat vacated!!!
