Benghazi, Mon Amour

Rice, you’ll recall, was the designated stooge behind the deliberate Benghazi lying campaign, whose egregious misdirection cost her the Foggy Bottom appointment that she felt she so richly deserved. Unconfirmable, she’s now been handed a gig that does not require Senate approval — Clinton hack James Carville rightly called it an “in-your-face appointment”:

My guess is that he wanted her to be Secretary of State and he felt like she kind of got railroaded there and this is kind of in your face appointment, but he obviously thinks a great deal of Ambassador Rice. Like I say, he wanted her to be Secretary of State. She’s not confirmable and it’s like a message that he’s going to stick by. He views her as a competent person and probably as a friend of his. You know, I think it’s an in your face appointment and he feels good about making it.

And good luck to the Republicans on the Hill getting the new National Security adviser to testify about Benghazi now. Should’ve struck while the iron was hot, lads.

As for birds two and three, I’ll leave it to my PJ colleagues to unpack the implicit antisemitic and anti-Israel nature of the Power appointment; the Irish-born Ms. Power is married to Harvard egghead Cass Sunstein, proving once again that leftists, like rock stars and supermodels, tend to travel in packs and marry each other because they never meet anybody else. But surely Hillary Clinton, who’s clearly now being fitted for the fall guy jacket regarding Benghazi, must be seething.

Weep for your country, and pass the popcorn — 2016′s going to be fun. Will Hillary run against Bush, Obama, or both?

Ms. Susan comes across as a silver-spooned twit, angry, bitter, entitled and shallow -- also sufficently tinted to expect full-court MSM protection as ...well, what?... as a birthright, that's what. Over-credentialed for sure, but also bereft of all street smarts, guile and combat skills of the kind a kick-ass diplomat needs (no coincidence that her mentor and 'family friend' Albright lacks them, too). Nat'l Security Advisor? R-i-g-h-t.

Interesting to compare little Spo' with the other Rice, Condoleeza, who wasn't perfect by any means (zero management skills at the top of the list), but was -- and is -- a woman of real merit with powerful analytical abilities.

So, yeah, Carville's correct, sad-assed dupe Susan is an in-your-face appointment and Obama will get away with it, a fine example of Newtonian politics, a trend in motion that will continue until stopped. Meanwhile, the farce continues, our institutions decay from within as planned, and our country shrinks a little more each day. The 'loyal opposition', in its role as Chorus, whistles past the graveyard, tuneless and useless as ever.

Somebody please explain why this will end well.

About time for martial display. For drama, how 'bout Marine Corps bands blasting out Battle Hymn of the Republic, simultaneously, coast-to-coast and often, spelled by really big and very noisy Taiko bands massed outside Congress and the WH, just to show how multiculti the revulsion is? Beat-2-3-4-5-6. Beat-2-3-4-5-6. Beat-2-3-4-5-6.... Maybe also a few ropes over lamp posts, French-syle, as a nod to Europe. Do you want change or not?

" ....... blowing a chance to persuade the American people on a positive policy agenda. "

Okay. So let's start with selling the notion of scaling back the government so as to place it on a fiscally sound path (but don't talk of the repeal of ObamaCare!) in order to save America from eventual financial ruin. There's a positive idea. Now, take that out and sell it to the currently dumbed-down, uninformed, and propagandized electorate.

Go for it, Bill. You threw down the challenge. Just tell us how it shall be done.

There may be one shred of hope remaining concerning Benghazi. Hillary Clinton will go quietly into the night because of Benghazi. If Benghazi ends her career, she will take a few with her - including Obama. It should also be noted that the Clinton power base has dwindled as Obama's people have steadily seized influence in both the Democrat Party and the Beltway. But, the Clintons still have many friends.

Everyone knows that either Obama personally issued the stand-down orders or delegated that authority to Penetta. That is where he is vulnerable. If documentation or recording of what occurred in the Situation Room that night every get leaked, Obama could very well see a firestorm erupt that will not only bring his administration down, but also cause a civil war within the Democrat Party. In both cases, Hillary wins.

Stay tuned.

When Susan Rice's face is at rest (usually always is) it has the blank look of one who is truly confused and terminally dumb.

I refuse to die until 2016 to see if Patrice Lamumba throws Hillary under the Benghazi bus. I want to see Bill have him for lunch. We deserve at least that much after this circus. I am glad my father didn't live to see this or I would have to cancel my phone service forever.

The people sense we are in a revolutionary time. The majority just mistook Obama for the revolution they could believe in (ooh, look at all the pretty balloon-ideas !). Sorry, Insane Left, but revenge doesn't cut it as a "positive policy agenda".

Flipping the bird has many contexts. But IF patriots want to get down to the bare bones of Benghazigate, thus ensnaring the POTUS & gang, you may want to peek within....seek and you shall find some delicious goodies - http://adinakutnicki.com/2013/05/24/whatwho-was-occupying-obamas-missing-time-as-americans-died-in-benghazi-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/

>>good luck to the Republicans on the Hill getting the new National Security adviser to testify about Benghazi now.

Her testimony is no loss. What does she actually know? She was handed a script and she read it. The questions are, who wrote the script and why? Hillary's the one to call in for a Q&A. No, I don't expect any facts from that, but I do expect various and sundry side effects on her political future and Obama's.
