    Where were these guys when Colin Powell was telling the UN Iraq had WMDs?
    Probably out buying stock in Remington, Colt, Boeing and General Dynamics…

    mindless political posturing designed to draw attention away from the reTHUGlicans’ failure to address the nations’ more pressing problems"
    That makes more sense than anything I have heard lately.
    This is just Secretary of State, wait till President Obama nominates another Supreme Court Justice.

    Doesn’t it seem strange that the repugs are making a big deal about this non-issue, threatening to block her nomination presumably by filibuster or anonymous hold, while at the same time the senate is considering reforming the filibuster rules? It appears that the repubs are giving a prime reason to end the filibuster as we know it.

    Could’ve used some of these high-quality witch hunts during the run up to the Iraq war.

    There is a theory gaining ground in the ether of media and internet news suggesting McCain, Ayodette, Collins, and Graham don’t believe Ms. Rice is guilty of anything that hasn’t been done before by others representing the “truth” as provided to them. They remember Condoleeza and Powell giving false information based on what was “known” at the time.
    The four people I mention above have all said Ms. S. Rice is not suitable for Sec of State, but Senator Kerry of Mass. would be. If Kerry became Sec of State, Scott Brown, a man for who McCain, Ayodette, and Collins campaigned in the last election, would have a chance to run for senate again and possibly further reduce the Dem majority in that body.
    There is no reason to punish Ms. Rice based on all reports. No one is demanding for the current Sec of State, Ms. Clinton, to testify. They haven’t called for more CIA personnel to defend the decision on what talking points to provide to Ms. Rice.
    This is a necessary distraction. Necessary in that we need to know what can be done in the future to protect our ambassadors, a distraction in that the Republicans are focusing on a person following orders from the CIA instead of fast tracking the funds that were supposed to have been used to upgrade security at locations world wide. A necessity in order to improve operation, but a distraction as it keeps these people from having to talk about what they are going to do to get us through the next few years.
    This attack on Ms. S. Rice is a political game to affect the senate of the USA.
    And Howgozit, I doubt you can find a history of any administration where the American People were not decieved “for their own good and the good of the country” by the executive, or the legislative branch of office.
    Too many believe the ends justify the means. I think trolls must be the same way.
    In Virginia Beach, you can drive on Witch Duck Road. Legend says the original road went down to the river where “witches” were drowned to prove they weren’t witches. McCain is drowning Rice’s career in order to play political games. It is not honorable, ethical, or moral.
    Maybe you feel it is ok since “Libs” do it too, or even "first.‘, Doesn’t matter. it’s still wrong.

    Further demonstration of the GOP party-first mentality.

    It’s the desperation to get a scandal to stick on this administration. Drives the GOP nuts.

    @ Trusted the Democrat base is full of nothing but double standards with forked tongues. You’re right in the snake pit with the rest of them.

    Guy, ignore the troll.
    You got a response, just as smart as everything else he posts.
    You cannot help him.

    Ansonia: produce some WMDs. And that was jus the lies to get us into wars. REmember it was Saddam who launched the attack on 9/11/01, which was why Rumsfeld and Cheney said they needed to attack him, immediately!

    I read someone the other day — but I forget who it was — saying that Benghazi is a tragedy in search of a scandal, while the Petraeus affair is a scandal in search of a tragedy. I think that’s pretty smart.
