Unbelievable! Absolutely unbelievable is the audacity of this second term failure.

And she'll advise him with what expertise? How to dissemble the why's and wherefore's of Bengahzi? Talk about the Peter Principle! Why would any Democrat be pleased with such an incompetent prevaricator being elevated to National Security Advisor? Do you feel more secure with someone who thought Bengahzi was caused by a "spontaneous demonstration over a video"???

No matter what choice the President makes on anything, GOP criticism is as certain as the certainty that Summer follows Spring. The only way for Obama to deal with GOP criticism is to tune it out.

Political payback to a loyal political hack rather than rewarding competence. Failure by the Democrats to recognize Ms. Rice's mendacity is typical of tuning out reality and living in the isolation that comes from listening only to sycophants. On the other hand, she fits in well with Jay Carney.

If I knew the president had a sense of humor, I'd be laughing since this is a joke...right?

not a surprise. this is a situation where she was told 'you get this job if you do not say anything about bengazi'. i am sure money was passed under the table and threats made. also this is a liberal woman, o supporters are loving this but what they don't know is she will crumble.

Wow? This is the best we can do?

Let's start fresh. Everyone in Washington resign, and lets get a new crew in.

To Caig Clark:
There actually are other ways to deal with criticism other than just tune it out. The President could listen to it for a change and thus try to learn something from his often repeated mistakes. But as surely as winter follows fall, some liberals will just never do that.

Listening is a two way street and the President does a far better job of listening than do his GOP detractors who are bent on waging a war of distraction for political gain. Even when the President actively solicited GOP input on such basic policies as health care, they turn their noses up and opt for the podium of the Hill. If that's what the President has to deal with then he more and more has little choice to go it alone.

Don't like that? Just stop and take stock of what the GOP role has been in national gridlock.

The way he mentioned her first name, Susan, let me know he is thanking her for going on the television shows on a Sunday to ensure what he did in Benghazi had all the truth and sincerity and obligations and duties that happened during Benghazi highlighted with integrity and honor.

He could not have done it without her and he is so thankful she was there bright eyed and saluted to him that she would do anything for him. She proved to be a true servant of the President of the United States of America and would do "anything" to make him look good for the election, especially after Mitt Romney questioned the actions of the United States of America, the most powerful country in the world. If we would sacrifice our Ambassador and 3 other dedicated, motivated and true servants in the call of duty. When the Ambassador called Mr. Hicks, he knew he and his employee would meet the fate of death under the circumstances. He probably didn't know the two CIA people would eventually go against direct orders and try to save the Ambassador. Duty and Honor, CIA beliefs. They couldn't stand by.
