Replacing 4 Dead Americans...

I don't see how electing Susan Rice as the next Secretary of State puts Benghazi behind Obama.  Need I remind you:

4 Americans are Dead!

How does a LIVING UN Ambassador make up for that?  She can't be that stupid.  No she isn't.  She threw out the talking points. 

Blood is on the hands of those that watched and ordered help to stand down.  How can we let them get away with this?  Oh I know..these wimp Senators, McCain and Lindsay Graham, won't affected by the deaths as much as the families.  

We need to clean house in DC.  When did electing someone get them off the hook for incompetence and lying to the American people?  They are so out of touch with us!

Obama may get chance to end Benghazi PR disaster

The White House could finally have its chance to close the books on its Benghazi public relations disaster, as key Republicans signal they might not stand in the way of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to become the next secretary of state.

"I think she deserves the ability and the opportunity to explain herself and her position," Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., told "Fox News Sunday." ''But she's not the problem. The problem is the president of the United States," who, McCain said, misled the public on terrorist involvement.

Rice is widely seen as President Barack Obama's top pick to replace Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton as the nation's top diplomat. But Rice's reputation took a serious hit this fall when she relied on unclassified talking points provided by the intelligence community that portrayed the attack in Benghazi, Libya, as a spontaneous assault by a mob angered by an anti-Muslim video posted on YouTube.

Intelligence officials quickly amended their assessment to conclude the attack hadn't been related to other film protests across the Middle East. But that revised narrative was slow to reach the public, prompting Republicans to allege a White House cover-up ahead of the Nov. 6 election.

The attack killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, a State Department computer specialist and two former Navy SEALs who were working as contract security guards.

McCain's remarks were in contrast to his previous stance that Rice wasn't qualified to replace Clinton, who is expected to step down soon, and that he would do "whatever is necessary" to block Rice's possible nomination.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, McCain's close friend and colleague on the Senate Armed Services Committee, told ABC's "This Week" he still suspects the White House intentionally glossed over obvious terrorist links in the attack to keep voters from questioning Obama's handling of national security.
