Report: Susan Rice’s promotion to National Security Advisor ‘definitely happening’

Benghazigate might have derailed Ambassador Susan Rice’s bid to be Secretary of State, but the “extraordinary” Rice might have a promotion in her future after all. Foreign Policy reports today that Rice “has become the heir apparent to National Security Advisor Tom Donilon — a post at the epicenter of foreign-policy decision making and arguably more influential than secretary of state.” Writer John Hudson quotes an unnamed source as saying “it’s definitely happening.”

  • Miss Smarty

    Its always the government way to promote someone like her to their highest level of incompetency.

    • Garth Haycock

      Yep. Combine incompetence with the willingness to lie one’s backside off and there is no promotion too out of reach.

      • Miss Clairee

        …….and don’t forget that selling one’s soul to the devil is part of that gig as well!

      Except when it comes to this White House, they always promote their losers to a position ABOVE their level of incompetence.

    • dennylee60

      She would have to take over Obama’s job to reach the highest level of incompetency in this administration.

      • GaryTheBrave

        Don’t give them any ideas.

    • QuadGMoto

      What makes you think she was incompetent? She did exactly what her superiors wanted her to do. That makes her a “team player” that they want in a position of power.

      “Good for the nation” has nothing to do with this administration’s decision making process.

  • Typewriterstreaming

    Holy Cow.

  • Hank Scorpio

    She is perfect for the Obama administration…she’ll believe any ridiculous lie and repeat it on demand.

    I hope I don’t get audited for writing that.

    • nc

      Too late.

      • Miss Clairee

        Yep, we’re all being audited as we speak…….or type!

    • Clayton Grant

      Americans of all stripes need to demand the truth. Demand accountability.

    I’d be outraged, but I’m kinda getting used to this horse shit.

  • Portnoy

    Y’all just racist…Girl prolly don’t even own a uTube…

    • Miss Clairee

      Ain’t nobody got time fa dat!

  • Sam

    Yes, in our faces.

  • nc

    Wow, this is so in your face.

  • Jack Deth

    Oh, yeah.

    This gives me an all over Warm Fuzzy feeling under the guise of National Security.

  • BK

    Perfect. Never stumbled, never faltered, said her lines and didn’t bump into furniture. Proven Obamabot.

    • GaryTheBrave

      In other words she’s a Roomba.

      • BK

        Exactly! A Roomba has a programmable brain too. Let’s hope there are enough balls in Congress to prevent any promotion that puts her in the national security realm in the WH.

        • MyrmidoNOT

          Wonder what she has, in her lint trap…??
          Cannot wait for Shrillery to empty hers, on “teh oone”…

        • GaryTheBrave

          NSA isn’t a cabinet-level position. I’m not certain it is up to Senate confirmation.

  • AZWarrior

    Payoff, simple payoff.

    • sb36695

      Unfortunately, we’re the ones paying.

    Another outstanding decision by Dear Leader. This will definitely make our country safer. All over the world heads are shaking and eyes are rolling. Thank you Mr Empty Suit.

  • Tiffini

    If the President sets the tone, like all the talking heads are saying, then that means no matter how dirty you act, what laws or ethics you break, you get promoted, praised and us tax payers get the privilege of paying your salary. Yay us.

    • Squirrel!

      Agreed, but would like to add we pay a much, much bigger price than that along with our children & their children & maybe even their children.

      • Tiffini

        So true.

        • tnwoman1948

          You have my admiration. Posting your picture even though you are fat AND ugly. From your comment, you are ignorant, too. A triple threat.

          • Tiffini

            Careful your tolerance is showing.

          • tnwoman1948

            Sorry I can’t help it if you are fat AND ugly. It has nothing to do wit “tolerance”.

  • trixiewoobeans

    More playground antics from the Playground President.

  • Julierae2332

    Ability to lie is the prerequisite for most senior positions in this administration. So Rice will fit right in! Then of course there is the need to give her a gold star for taking the rap for incompetence that surrounds her. I wonder what happens when Obama runs out of “positions” for all of those people who have aided and abetted, err I mean helped him in some way. Please please someone write a book!!

  • Jimni27

    To quote Charles Ramsey- Obama’s gotta have some pretty big testicles to pull that off.

    • BeautifulAmerica

      Sorry, but haven’t you heard? He doesn’t have any. He’s a eunuch, thanks to jihad.

  • grais

    If she doesn’t get a reward, she will sing.

    • Jeremy

      yeah got to prevent that book deal from happening

  • pj

    This sounds like they are paying Rice off, don’t you think? They have burned too many bridges already.

  • sb36695

    Welcome to the Banana Republic of America.

    • forgetyoutooo

      Where Hillary was given the title of Secretary of State for dropping out the race in ’08 and Rice is rewarded for lying to the world with a promotion to National Security Advisor .

      • Wiki David

        SOS was consolation prize for Hilliry. They told her in 94 to 99 to not divulge where the bodies were and she gets to be POTUS. Step 2: US Senator, for street cred. (BTW, this is why gore lost the POTUS, all DNC focus on HRC) Step 3: Run for POTUS, oops! Sorry but DNC had to run the race card… you lose. But, Bingo! You get to be the SOS and 4 Americans die.

        • Wiki David

          Here comes the audit…

    • tnwoman1948

      Yes, thanks to those thugs in the RepubliCON-dominated House.

      • sb36695

        Yes they were targeting their enemies with the IRS, EPA, etc. And they are handing out taxpayer money to their cronies. Put down the kool-aid, and look up the definition of Banana Republic.

        • Wiki David

          Tnman is trolling. Doesnt quite get that mouseyroller thing yet. Ended up here with no ammo.

  • John Baich

    Just another mindless meat puppet for King Obama’s court.

    Just like the Great Black Father the Greatest American President Ever and Eric Holder the Greatest American Attorney General Ever along with John Kerry Susan Rice too will go down in the New History Books as the Greatests EVER!

  • forgetyoutooo

    She passed the lie test but can she look the Congressional committee in the eye and say “I Don’t Know” 100 times without blinking?

      • beebop1952

        It won’t matter. He will do a recess appointment or some other fast and loose transaction after he gets his next 15 minutes where they can throw the race/war on women card around ….

    She did the job that she was asked to do, and is getting rewarded. Ask Valerie Jarrett. She said they would reward those who stood with them.

      Because God knows none of these incompetents ever leave the security of the right and left coast.

    • tnwoman1948

      YOU ought to know because that is where you are obviously headed with that demonic screen pic.

  • yahneverknow

    HAHAHAHA…. Sure. She knows security… as in “How to have job security in the Obama administration.”

  • MyCowboyWays

    Susan Rice is a Cunning Liar for Obama. Plus he needs to keep buying her silence.

    New theory: When Obama saw all these scandals, he spit his coffee all over his computer, causing it to short out and promoting Susan Rice out from under the bus.

    Isn’t there a position where she can do even more damage?

    • my2centshere

      No John Kerry got that one.

  • lonestar

    Her reward for lying for him.

  • Squirrel!

    Only qualification(s) in this administration is do you lie easily, lack integrity & before taking action, first ask yourself WWBHOD?

  • JustLikeAnimals

    Obviously political payola for her loyalty in Benghazi cover-up.

  • KansasGirl

    Oh Goody…cause nothing makes me feel safer than having a lying POS as Natl Security Advisor.

    She took one for Obama and this is her reward.

      (Thwack) the sound of your comment hitting the bullseye.

    • beebop1952

      Susan Rice goes back to the Bill Clinton days. She took this one for the once and future candidate.

  • Audit this, futhermuckers!

    Is old Russian proverb:

    Promoted to highest level of incompetence!

  • Kevin

    It’s a distraction, a sacrificial offering to avert your attention while the White House buys time.

  • jebjr

    At a minimum she should be fired and never see another gov’t job again. If her intentional lies rose to the level of incarceration, even better. Then when she got out she would have a job waiting for her to teach at Columbia or Berkeley. This woman lacks one iota of professionalism or personal integrity.

  • TocksNedlog

    This way she can write her own false talking points next time.

  • HARP2

    Hell, why not put her in charge of the IRS while you`re at it.

  • beebop1952

    A promotion after being used as Hillary Clinton’s toilet paper.

  • Colonel Haiku

    what a cunning stunt
    i feel safer already
    throw these damn bums out!

  • TreeClimber87

    Hey, it’s brilliant stategy if you think about it. The “annointed one” is running out of people to throw under the bus. Susan Rice is just being set up to be the next scape goat for the next “man made catastrophy” that is bound to happen. This man pats you on the back with one hand as he is raising the dagger with the other.

  • Junie3

    They are really saddened by the loss of those 4 Americans. Every time you see Miss Five Show Video, what ya going to think about? In your face Patriots.

    • Jerkjohnny

      I’m thinking you forgot a few parts of speech just now, perhaps an article, or proper use of plurality. I don’t know what you’re referring to.

      btw an “article” is : a, an , or the.

      • Junie3

        Love your name, it sooooo fits. Five Sunday talk shows blaming an video, that help, moron?

        • Jerkjohnny

          That would be Susan Rice. “in your face patriots.” Yeah I don’t think I’m the jerk here.

        • Jerkjohnny

          That would be Susan Rice. “in your face patriots.” Yeah I don’t think I’m the jerk here.

  • michael s

    I hope so.

  • stuckinIL4now

    This is the Obamuh Corollary to the Peter Principle. You rise to your level of incompetence then you get promoted once more. Failing upwards–it’s the lynch pin of this SADministration and Rice is the standard bearer.

  • GaryTheBrave

    This makes budgetary sense. They can take all the old Condoleeza Rice business cards from when she was NSA, Wite-Out “Condoleeza”, and type in “Susan.”

    Do I really need to add the /sarc tag?

  • jcasteele

    Is it hard to imagine that this is the pay-off she was told she would get for taking the fall on the Ben Ghazi talking points fiasco?

  • JR48

    She did such a great job with spinning Benghazi, imagine how safe the entire country will be with her at the helm.

  • irishgirl91

    Big ol’middle finger to the American people. He could not be clearer about his feelings toward us if he tried.

  • ceemack

    Will Obama appoint not a SINGLE competent person to a position in his administration? There’s no way in Hell this woman is qualified for that post.

  • mcpotd

    Strange but I do NOT feel any more “secure”.

  • AmazedJim

    Absolutely unbelievable!

  • RightThinking1

    Obama’s cabinet looks less and less ‘like America’. Especially with the appointments of under-qualified cronies Mel Watt and Anthony Foxx in the wings. Foxx is a particularly egregious case. Foxx was co-chair of the DNC Host committee (quite purposely formed independently of the party). The committee arranged for a $10 million loan that was guaranteed by Duke Energy. Not co-incidentally, the CEO of Duke was a big Obama supporter, having personally donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Democrats. When the convention was over, Foxx & friends simply walked away from the loan…, defaulted. Foxx’s appointment is clearly pay-back by Obama for a fraud well performed. Meanwhile the Duke stockholders and rate-payers are left with the tab. Where is the fraud investigation? Where are the news media? Silence. When the DOJ ought to be investigating the matter, the fact is, Foxx is going to be appointed to a cabinet position.

    It’s just another piece of Obama’a incompetence. To add another person that will lie and cover his back side is the way this President does things. What a cesspool of losers,for those that are suppose to lead and help protect this Country. It’s ridiculous!!

    • Holly Martin

      Plus, at this point, nobody else would stick their neck out to work for him. His pool of candidates is getting very small.

  • cutmetal

    Only way to get them to shut up and tow the party speaking points is to promote them. Look for more promotions to come.. IRS Commissioner Steven Miller steps down, Obama feigns anger over IRS abuse, but will soon be promoted. This needs to stop, and one way is to hold them accountable to law… Section 242 of Title 18 makes it a crime for a person acting under color of any law to willfully deprive a person of
    a right or privilege protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States. Call your representative and demand the rule of law be applied… under Section 242 Title 18 threatening or intimidation under color of law to deprive someone of a constitutional right is a crime… Is that not what the IRS did? Is that not what Eric Holder gang is doing with the wire taps against the AP news service? You going to just sit back and let them abuse the Constitution? These are your rights they are trampling… not just others… you trample one, you trample all!


    Higher level of Lying deserves more money and a new title, which is, the only thing that is Secure is the money they acquire and print and the he!! with our Ambassador and 3 Diplomats.


    Will this NewRiceJob bring down the Federal Un-employment rate to 2.9%, now from the 3.2%?

  • Golphin

    I say let her get the job. The Wons foreign policy is in shambles. Let her embarrass herself.
    I believe the Reps should put out press releases:
    “Congratulations to Susie! ( diss her by using her first name) or is it Suzy?
    After her brave performance on that Ben Gozzy fellow, she is PERFECT for the job”.
    Now Mr. Sotero will have a woman in his cabinet. Obviously, Nappy and Sebby don’t count.

    • neoface

      Please NO, we already have Biden doing that job!!!

  • Marco

    Looks like the Peter Principle doesn’t apply here.

  • neoface

    Not if she ends up in jail, isn’t it against the law to blatantly lie when you know the truth? I’m certain they promised her the secretary of state job, thought people would give Oblamer a pass. It didn’t work, but she still lied.

  • James Neal

    I smell more stinking onions. Donilon is the most likely candidate for exposure on Benghazi (who pushed the damn video?) so he has to be moved to a position of recusement and deniability and irrelevance, just another Obama pawn sacrificed on the chessboard of a failed presidency. Who cares where or what Susan Rice does, she is already as irrelevant as the ashes of history.
