Benghazi talking points scrubber promoted at State Department

Victoria Nuland, the State Department spokeswoman best known for demanding that references to al-Qaida be removed from government talking points about the September 11, 2012, Benghazi attack, is being rewarded for her stellar work with a promotion. Soon, she will have responsibility for snow-jobbing an entire region as Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs.

We’re sure that the British will appreciate her opinion on whether the maniac who hacked one of their soldiers to death with a meat cleaver qualifies as a “terrorist.”

Combine this with the pending appointment of Susan Rice as National Security Advisor, and you’d almost get the feeling that people involved in this scandal are actually being rewarded for their behavior.

Nah, the Obama administration would never do something like that, would they?

On the plus side, this at least means that she’ll get a nice grilling in the Senate.

Amen to that! We’ll be waiting with a tub of popcorn and a big bag of Twizzlers.

Still, as entertaining as those hearings will be, we can’t help but wonder about how much worse they would have been if George Bush had promoted FEMA Director Michael Brown to Secretary of Homeland Security after Hurricane Katrina. That hearing would have been on every network. Nuland might make Fox News if we’re lucky. MSNBC will probably be running a story about global warming causing three-headed chickens in Bangladesh or something.

    In other President’s administrations, if you break the law or help cover up something like this Benghazi mess, you get fired, possibly prosecuted. But in Obama’s Administration? You get promoted apparently.

      Can hardly wait to see where Lois Lerner ends up, when all is said and done.

      • Clayton Grant

        Probably running the Office of Economic Policy at Treasury.

        • Jennifer

          I hear they may soon be hiring at the DoJ.

        • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

          She will be promoted to the Director of the Faith Outreach Initiative.

      It’s the Peter Principle

      • Michael Anderson (WB)

        The Peter Principle says you get promoted until you can no longer properly perform your job, then you stay where you are inadequate. This would be the Obama Principle where you are promoted for criminal actions to help the reelection of the President.

          good point!

    • TRUTH

      Seems to me .. he wants to keep her “close”

  • mickeyco

    My brain hurts.

  • Clayton Grant

    Obama is picking another fight with the Senate. That is all this is. It fires up his base and gives him another thin layer of protection from the scandals.

  • kate_middleton

    Are there confirmation hearings for an assistant Secretary of State post? I didn’t think so.

    • Clayton Grant

      With the Benghazi investigation, there is bound to be conflict with the Senate. That is exactly what he wants.

  • detroit19

    In Obama “unicorn land.”, this makes perfect sense….pukeworthy. I
    so miss my country :'(

  • Jeremy

    You kiss Obama’s ass and get promoted nothing new but,yes it’s disgusting

  • KansasGirl

    Reid promoting the nuclear option is starting to make sense.

  • Squirrel!


  • Lotte Lenya

    Hush money.

    • Jeremy

      yep under the table.

  • Legislative Arsonist

    We’re fcked. Next thing you know, Hillary Clinton is Pr…..

    • Clayton Grant

      If you had chosen the other spelling for your moniker, I would be worried.

  • W Randall

    A promotion and a big F-YOU to America. Any day now I expect 0blamea to grab his crotch and say I got your Constitution right here!

  • detroit19

    I have plenty of ‘doozies’ on hand…can I be potus?

  • TocksNedlog

    Keep your friends close, and enemies of the state closer.

  • Adela Wagner

    Just like Rand Paul said last week, something along the lines of:”nothing will change in this Administration because they never fire anyone. In order to get any of them to come clean, you HAVE to have them afraid of being fired, but instead, they move them around, so we keep the same problems”.

  • JustLikeAnimals

    In a word: unfuckingbelievable.

  • Russell Armor

    I smell rat.

  • Clayton Grant

    Has the media notified Pres. Obama about this promotion yet or has he upgraded to Twitter?

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      Headlines will break tomorrow morning, at the earliest.

  • Bill Board

    As Obama himself has said, reward your friends and punish your enemies. James Rosen = co-conspirator, Licky Nuland = ass. secretary of state.

  • sally lou

    aaaaaannnd… guess who her husband is? Washington Post columnist Bob Kagan.

  • TeaPartyReaganConservative

    And the insidious subversive corrupt cony henchmen/women Obama hits just keep on coming.. Is it 2016 yet..

  • froggy19510

    1st rule of public service. Promote the most incompetent. If anyone in your section shows any independant thought or motivation get rid of them. They are a threat.

  • NewWest 123

    He does this to get the reaction he gets… He is laughing and loves every minute of it. He does not except responsibility for anything and never will… A Narcisist full blown and care about no one but himself and will do anything and I mean anything to push is agenda….he is creating crisis after crisis to keep people’s eye off the ball. Do you really think he is worried about this??? He always has a plan! None of these scandals bother him, in fact, I think he created them. He will ask Holder for his resignation(which was planned) remember when Holder talked about retiring?? But decided to stay… No loss to him… If Obamas plan is to squash the constitution and somehow end up in the Whitehouse again, he will and the next admin. can hire Holder back… I believe this guy has everything planned out!! Watch the Dems. Backing the GOP on some issues… no surprise, they are distancing themselves on purpose so they get re-elected…. doesn’t anyone see this??? WAKEUP!

    • Ms Anonymous

      Holder isn’t going anywhere. He’ll investigate himself, clear himself of all wrongdoing and the republicans in Congress will scurry out of his way.

      The Obama Principle

  • Karl Winrich

    With any luck her new job appointment will be canceled once her involvement in Benghazi gets her tried for treason and thrown in prison.

    The Benghazi specter hasn’t buried it’s victims yet. It should be interesting to see how many libs burn for this.

  • michael s

    She wont if you bring the heat to her the way ,you brought the heat to UN Ambassador Susan Rice. Let’s see consistency.She won’t if McCain says she’s incompetent,if he’s consistent.Lets see the dozens of Republican Congresspeople send Pres Obama a letter objecting to her promotion,if they’re consistent they will. Let’s see the new media that was used so effectively against Susan Rice,be used against Victoria Nuland. I know all the efforts to stop Susan Rice will be used against Victoria Nuland,although I could be wrong.

    • $18912735

      Well, here’s the thing: they ARE consistent, in that they’re politicians. After a little showboating, a little fake outrage for the TV cameras, she’ll be confirmed. It’s a done deal. Incompetency, graft and fraud is rewarded in Washington, D.C.; that is what is consistent.

  • irishgirl91

    We are finding the answer to “if a tree falls in a forest and there is no one there…” The admin. keeps giving us the finger with all these scandals and “investigations” and with no media to spread it out to low info’s and keep it in the news, it won’t be remembered and the public will not have the desire to really investigate. O will skate through his last term and be remembered as a god in the history books. Pray for alt media, it so far has been the only thing standing between the admin and their ultimate goals. It is a thorn in their side.

  • neoface

    That was her deal with the devil!!!!

  • William Wayne

    This may be the most corrupt administration in the history of our nation.
