Susan Rice reportedly out of the running for Secretary of State; Obama blames 'unfair and misleading attacks'

Was a YouTube video to blame?

No. She says confirmation fight would have been too difficult:

Apparently, her meetings with GOP Senators went really poorly:

President Obama accepts Rice’s decision:

Of course, the blame lies entirely with Republicans … not with the woman who falsely blamed four Benghazi murders on a YouTube video:

What she deserved was scrutiny. Senators McCain, Graham, and Ayotte were doing their jobs.

Not to mention sexist and racist, according to lefties.

Rice will continue on in her current post as Ambassador to the United Nations:

Most tweeters believe the Secretary of State position will go to Sen. John Kerry:

A Kerry appointment won’t make conservatives happy, but perhaps there is a silver lining:

    Susan Rice’s decision to drop Susan Rice from consideration for SecState clearly is an indication that Susan Rice is simply racist.

      BOOM! hahahaha

        Dang, I forgot to call her out for being sexist as well…

  • Timothy Noonan

    Congratulations to the conservative entertainment complex on their first victory of the year. So sad.

      Don’t forget they “won” Twitter in 2012

        Indeed, how can I forget. The ticker tape parade was epic.

    Well, well, well….they can still be beat!!!!!!!!!! Who would have thought?

  • ZoriahShepard

    Now she can go back to her irrelevant position of UN Ambassador and we can go back to not knowing who she is again.

  • Jack Deth

    Susan Rice’s fifteen minutes of fame, or infamy may be shortest on record.
    Now she can go back to being the brain sucked, affirmative action Obama bundler of illegal foreign funds at the U.N.

    If those Third World shit hole and Middle East contributors and front men will still talk and do business with her.

    So, this is a tactic to dimish the scrutiny of the Behngazi disgrace?

  • kate_middleton

    This was such theater from the White House.
    Donna Brazile said she deserved a fair hearing. Okay, then why didn’t Obama nominate her? If he wanted her, he should have manned up and nominated her.
    He probably didn’t want her for Sec State in the first place, but now they can paint it like it was all the GOP’s fault. So lame and predictable.
    And I hate to agree with eco-zealots, but her mega investments in TransCanada, given State’s involvement with Keystone XL should really be a big deal.

    How do you say “Merry Christmas” in Cambodian?

    Don’t worry, John Kerry doesn’t know either!

    Youngsters, ask an old person to explain. It’s hilarious!

    I’m sorry Donna Brazile but Susan Rice decided to not be nominated on her own, therefore, she won’t get a hearing to be confirmed for anything. If she hadn’t decided against being nominated she would have been given a fair hearing, it’s called a “confirmation hearing”. I’m sure this isn’t your first rodeo Donna and I’m sure you’re aware of confirmation hearings. I know I’ve been interested in them since 1980 when Edmund Muskie was confirmed for Sec of State.

    i’m sorry? you make your bed and then you lie in it (pun wasn’t intended). getting through life by making excuses is for hacks. no one is putting her in jail or placing some huge ‘liar liar pants on fire’ fine on her… she just isn’t getting a job. honest people have been denied employment for a lot less. at least she had the decency to back down. maybe she’s seen what the job has done to hillary’s face and decided it wasn’t worth it.

    I never agree with the POTUS, but he is absolutely correct in blaming
    ‘unfair and misleading attacks’ for Susan Rice withdrawing her name from consideration for Secretary of State. The blame is entirely on you, sir, for sending her out there to lie for you! There’s a man for you; send the ‘little lady’ out to do your dirty word. What a worm.

    This time video killed more than just the radio star.

  • michael s

    mccain graham ayotte collins kirsten hannity jeannine etc.all came against her. no hostitlity for hillary biden panetta brennan and we know why that is.
    i love how people here say they’re against identity politics execpt for people they like.

    The funniest part of this whole dance was seeing Republican senators — John McCain, Lindsay Graham, Kelly Ayotte, Susan Collins and Bob Corker — trash Susan Rice baselessly and then praise John Kerry, who was trashed by Republicans baselessly in 2004.
