Why Obama Fried Rice
When Susan Rice was sent out post-Benghazi to peddle the Administration line on the Sunday morning talk shows it was, as is everything, a test.
Or as George Patton might say, ‘you’re always on parade.’ In this case, it was a propaganda parade.
Rice ended up misrepresenting the truth on Benghazi and misleading the American people. Either she did this knowingly (shame on her and ta ta Secretary of State) or she did this unknowingly (shame on the Obama Administration and those who knew the truth and ta ta Secretary of State). And shame on most of the media for their remarkable incurious positions (it was pre-election; yes, I’m shocked, shocked!) on the topic.
Now the President is posturing with regard to Susan Rice, challenging the non-believers—there is more than a handful—to ‘come after me.’ They will. Obama’s position on Rice is absurd and painfully transparent.
And the only reason(s) Obama was up there bluffing on Rice was to attempt to 1) distract the public and the media on Benghazi, 2) rally the base post-election by spiking the football/posturing, and 3) provide Rice back some of her dignity—not that she deserves it—for so fully and faithfully taking a fatal head shot for Barry and the team.
Without a political miracle (and maybe even with one), Rice is toast.
