Tweeting from her official @AmbassadorRice account, which looks to be where she’ll remain for now, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice said tonight that she has withdrawn her bid to become Secretary of State because it’s “right for the country.” She further tweeted that she “wants to get things done,” which, if true, perhaps cements the notion that she has no place in Washington, D.C.

Plenty have rushed to blame the inherent sexism and racism of the GOP for scuttling Rice’s advancement, and they’re equally anxious to console her.

Hey, it’s Nancy Giles of CBS News— the one with the nutty sense of humor about whites and abortion.

President Obama had called Rice extraordinary and said he couldn’t be prouder of her, but Rice’s supporters are wondering where he is tonight.

For a person so extraordinary, there must be a consolation prize.

Update:

Donna Brazile has a warning for Republicans, and it involves God.

    I worry more and more than Obama’s approach to the world is kinda like Jamie Foxx’s

    • ratizbad

      He is a comedian fool with no learnings what so ever.Period!

      • mhojai

        And Jamie Foxx ain’t too bright, either!

    Isn’t Obama’s approach to the world “Become one, da?” (Google it.)

  • rich4488

    The Cabal will miss such a puppet.

  • my preciousss!!

    she’s a fighter? i suggest she enlist in the mujahideen.

    “I do it because I believe in President Obama’s approach to the world,”

    Spoken like a true Socialist lackey. That statement alone disqualifies her.

    • TocksNedlog

      Hear hear!

    • Guest

      Obama won! That proves a majority of Americans agree with her sentiment. I guess that makes America a country that believes in socialism.

  • nc

    What a patriot! What courage! What grace!

    Too bad we remember her as What a Liar!

    But Benghazi no longer counts, right?

    Once again, BHO wriggles out of a sticky situation (that would have killed any Repub), and, thanks to his Messengers in the Media, both he and Rice come out smelling like roses.

    My stomach hurts.

    • ratizbad

      Excellent …Could not said it any better.But give her credit, She obeys pretty good.

  • Scott

    Americas stature in the world is lower than it was prior to the revolution! She withdrew herself because she doesn’t want to own up to benghazi or her nasty business dealings, like her investment in that ol nasty oil pipeline. Freaking hypocrite.

    if she believes in his approach to the world, she must have said all of this from the golf course.

  • waltermitty2012

    If it wasn’t for that darn video . . . .

  • disappearing moderate

    I agree with the person who said she’d make a great DNC chair. She’s already a practiced liar. She was used to make Kerry look like a palatable nominee in comparison. But she’ll get her reward for following the party line. She’s already being talked up as the next NSA.

  • TocksNedlog

    “not at the cost of what’s right for our country”
    — Honesty, at last!

  • Lia Markham

    And the left is making her look like a hero…

    What a load of crap.

  • KhadijahMuhammad

    Far more likely that she was told to make this statement. Obama didn’t want to spend the next year in a drawn out battle where every aspect of his foreign policy failures was center stage,

  • $129448

    damn, her supporters are so dumb

  • michael s

    If I were Pres Obama I’d nominate for secretary of state James Clapper just to prove a point.

    • HARP2

      And what point would that be ?

      • michael s

        The point is that a white person who has much more culpability in the act of terrorism in benghazi libya Clapper being one of them isn’t subjected to the hatred,venom & string em up mentality Rice was. I’m sure Clapper in spite of being more culpable than UN Ambassador Rice would be confirmed.

  • BeautifulAmerica

    Total contempt for this communist POS. She should be behind bars for her behavior during Benghazi and at the UN/Israel. Why is my money going to support a lavish life for this traitor?

  • BeautifulAmerica

    Twitchy, please don’t insult your readers with this closeup of Rice. Can’t you find something tiny?

    Well, then she is saying: Yippee Obama sent our troops to Turkey. I love a good war in the morning. Let’s get some more of our people killed.

    Just saw a McDonalds help wanted sign. They need people who can relay information as they are given it. @SusanRice

  • Silenttype78

    She was never going to be nominated anyway.
    This was all an attempt to take the focus off of the Benghazi tragedy.

    The left plays the game better because conservatives falsely believe that people are smart enough to see through b.s.
    It’s past time for conservatives to stop assuming people are capable of figuring things out for themselves.

    she is nothing but an obama lover and a liar…..

  • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

    .@AmbassadorRice The truth about Benghazi would be right for our country. I’m glad I DON’T know you.

  • Poeticlargess

    Excellent! Perhaps not all of our Chicago Way is being transferred to the “Business as Usual” in WDC. Anyone from here knows what happened. She was given a deal – “Go out and sell this lie until we get elected and I’ll give you SoS.”. That’s why it was only her (can’t give out 2 SoS posts and no one else would allow themselves to be likewise tarnished) and why BHO backed this contaminated candidate so strongly until …… a nation that’s not been beaten into submission, as have we in Chicago, said, “Enough!”
