Susan Rice Withdraws From Consideration for Sec. of State - Over Fake Scandal

Politics • Views: 28,533

The Fox News/Republican Party witch hunt against Susan Rice, over a completely phony trumped-up scandal, has succeeded: EXCLUSIVE: Susan Rice Drops Out of Running for Secretary of State; Saddened by Partisan Politics.

Embattled U.N. envoy Susan Rice is dropping out of the running to be the next secretary of state after months of criticism over her Benghazi comments, she told NBC News on Thursday.

“If nominated, I am now convinced that the confirmation process would be lengthy, disruptive and costly - to you and to our most pressing national and international priorities,” Rice wrote in a letter to President Obama, saying she’s saddened by the partisan politics surrounding her prospects.

“That trade-off is simply not worth it to our country…Therefore, I respectfully request that you no longer consider my candidacy at this time,” she wrote in the letter obtained by NBC News.

Another Breitbart Fake Outrage Bites the Dust: Crowder Admits He Shoved Union Members

Today in the fake right wing scandal we’ll call UnionThug-Gate, we learn that provocateur Steven Crowder was not just standing there minding his own business when he was punched in the face outside the Michigan Capitol — he was shoving union members.

And how do we know this? From Crowder’s own words, in this smug, self-aggrandizing interview with Canada’s Fox News imitation, Sun News. The thing about dimwits like Crowder is that if you let them keep talking long enough, they’ll eventually out themselves. They can’t help it.

The pertinent section begins at about 4 minutes in, as the interviewer rants about thugs and asks why the police didn’t arrest them (maybe because Crowder never filed a police report?):

“I’ve been very honest about this, the fact that as they started ransacking the tent, yeah, me and some men went out there … and we didn’t get violent with them but we did try to push them off the tent. That is true. We tried to push them off the tent.”

That’s right, he’s admitting on television that he was the original aggressor in this incident, but edited his video to remove the part where he was pushing union members. Idiot. Another Breitbart invented outrage bites the dust.

Steve King: I Have No Idea What Happened in Benghazi but It’s Worse Than Watergate

The Republican clown car

Iowa Republican caveman Steve King weighed in the Benghazi fake scandal today; he says he has no idea what took place, or who did what, but he does know it’s 10 times worse than Watergate and Iran-Contra put together.

‘I believe that it’s a lot bigger than Watergate, and if you link Watergate and Iran-Contra together and multiply it times maybe 10 or so, you’re going to get in the zone where Benghazi is,’ Mr. King said. ‘I don’t think the public has any idea, and I tell you, I don’t either, of the chronology of the events — what took place, and who was where doing what and why. And all the way down through — we still haven’t seen an autopsy report on the ambassador yet. Simple questions that you would ask in the first 24 hours have not been asked yet.’

There you have it — a clear statement of the utter derangement of the GOP. This isn’t government, it’s a pathetic circus, and Steve King is one of the clowns.
