    @Cool_voter Bush left office with $10.626 trillion in debt. During his presidency, to the national debt were added $4.494 trillion. History shows the Obama administration had added $6.84 trillion for four years.

    I'd like to agree with McCain that Rice is an idiot for thinking that we are gullible enough to believe that a planned military strike against a US target could so easily be pawned off as a protest gone wrong on several morning talk shows. I am wrong. I apologize.

    I'm glad that being on Politix, watching the Sunday talkies, and having John McCain as Senator enables me to have access to unfettered classified briefings from the DNI, DCI, FBI, State Dept., and Dept. Of Homeland Security.
    Thanks John!!

    @ctc - On September 12 I heard news reports that the attack in Libya included RPGs and coordinated mortar fire. For the following 2 weeks while in Europe, I heard every news agency bash the US for having freedom of speech and not controlling the production of the anti islamic movie (that no one had heard of or seen). Additionally, the coordinated strike on our Libya ambassador was constantly smeared in with the unrelated violent protests in Egypt.

    apologize for what he was right she is incompetent. she either allowed herself to be used out of incompetence or out of corruption of her own in order to further her political career. nobody at her level should be that easily lead by the nose.
    she has proven herself unqualified for the State Department job.

    You realize you justed listed at least four of the basic qualifications for that job in your brief rant.

    @ctc yeah what's that? being led around by the nose by a corrupt president? consistently lying to the American people to cover up the Presidents mistakes? do you really think those are prerequisites for the State Department job?

    Loss of legacy #101 professor John McCain. Content
    trace history of war hero, to presidential candidate, to bitter old man, failing to attend crucial meetings in favor of continuing to mutter " I can't believe I lost to the black guy"

    @bsking, consider this possibility: the DNI, other intelligence services, and the military already knew who was responsible, but changed the wording of this report deliberately in order to lull the enemy into a false sense of security. If you're going to go after a group, you don't want to spook them into going to ground. Even if it means deliberately misleading the American public, wouldn't it be worth it if it increased our chances of catching the actual perpetrators? It's just a thought ...

    Apologize for what, wanting her to do her job? Oh, that's right! This isn't her job! That would be Hillary, and I guess she was getting her nails done and stuff.

    Ms. Rice made comments based on information given to her.

    Sen McCain made comments based on information given to him.

    If you want to keep people from making stupid comments, quit puting out misinformation.

    what info was McCain given that said Rice was not fit for her job? He would know that the UN ambassador does not make policy on her own. he's a big boy, he should man up.

    Seems to me that the information given him right after the attack was exactly the same information Susan Rice used. If so, then his over the top continuing attack on her was political or personal.

    Absolutely!! If the Director of National Intelligence lied in the beginning, he should be fired. And Obama should have straightened it out immediately. Of course this administration is not known for its honesty or taking responsibility.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

    @ACTSmom When did the DNI director lie? he was correct in that the connection to any roup was tenuous. no statesman worth his gov't pension would ever promulgate such an accusation with that little proof.
  • #58
    !
    @woodtick57 ...he changed the wording and apparently was not forthcoming about that in testimony he gave. "The statement released this evening by the DNI's spokesman regarding how the Intelligence Community's talking points were changed gives a new explanation that differs significantly from information provided in testimony to the Committee last week," said committee spokeswoman Susan Phalen. "Chairman Rogers looks forward to discussing this new explanation with Director Clapper as soon as possible to understand how the DNI reached this conclusion and why leaders of the Intelligence Community testified late last week that they were unaware of who changed the talking points."

    Well, John my boy, YOU did say "Rice "incompetent" and alleged that she's "not very bright.". Now even though "McCain no longer blames Rice for garbling the talking points", YOU did say the above! Now, be a big boy and say "I'm sorry, I'm an idiot who jumped to a conclusion and I admit it"!

    Hmmm. I recall that Bush was declared a liar about WMD's even though his team received their Intel from Clinton, Blaire and MI6.

    There are those that believe that Clinton was a hero (operating on "false" intel) and that Bush was a liar (operating on the same "false" intel from the same sources).

    As for Benghazi, enough time has passed and enough people have spun the timeline and altered the facts that WE THE PEOPLE may never, ever know the truth.

    McCain is absolutely correct, she is incompetent but the majority of democrats are! Utilizing "not very bright" was actually being very nice.

    @Zoe2012 I've met John McCain, as I campaigned for him in Ohio. He is the nicest,
    most humble man I've ever met. I think coming so close to death and being a POW for
    six years has softened him, he appears to never want to say a bad word about anyone.
    I can not imagine being beaten so badly, having so many bones broken, being in total
    isolation and interrogated almost daily foe six years! I know I could never have survived,
    he is a Hero and always will be to me, I have the utmost respect for him...and sadly, there
    are no heroes left.

    @CanisCanemEdit
    But Bush had intel from CIA that there were no nuclear weapons fuel and proceeded to discredit the and pubically identify the CIA agent who brought hin the proof because he wanted, for political reasons, to go to war. Also read Price Of Loyalty by O'neil, a solid republican who served in ford and nixon administrations before serving W. He makes clear war with Iraq was being discussed in white house meetings before 9/11 ever occurred...

    At the very best Susan Rice is a little sweetpea suck up looking for every opportunity to get ahead...a person who would sell her soul to climb the ladder. But, I really think she is a weak little girl on the world stage and she is being used by the Barack Husssein Obama crew. In fact...she owes the American people an apology for her complicity in this crap.

    You gotta be kidding; Little Suzie's feelings are hurt because big meany John said she wasn't very bright? Maybe her big brother (well, not so big) Barock is going to beat John up for calling her stupid... This is playground bullshit made into an issue in effort to divert attention from the REAL ISSUE, a White House Coverup regarding the mismanagement of a security situation that cost Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith and Ambassador Chris Stevens their lives.... I think a lot more than THEIR feelings were hurt before they ultimately died because of the Axleshaft administrations incompetetence.... McCain apologize? When do Axleshaft, his thugs and their boy apologize to John McCain for the lies and distortions they told about him in their effort to elect the incompetent buffoon that cost Woods, Doherty, Smith and Stevens their lives?.... When do Axleshaft, his thugs and their boy apologize to Sarah Palin for their brutal attacks on her and her FAMILY in their effort to elect the incompetent buffoon that cost Woods, Doherty, Smith and Stevens their lives?.... When do Axleshaft, his thugs and their boy apologize to Jack and Jeri Ryan and their children for making their private business an election issue to elect the incompetent buffoon that cost Woods, Doherty, Smith and Stevens their lives to the Illinois Senate?... Little Suzy needs to pull on her big girl panties, if she can get them back from Axleshaft and realize that she's running with the scum of the earth and when you run with scum you usually get some on you.... In other words Suzy; suck it up you deserve the criticism.

    Anyone associated with the democrat party owes an apology to McCain. They also need to denounce all racism and sexism against white males. Until then, They're nothing but hatemongers. And hatemongers are not worthy of respect.

    We need leaders that think for themselves, not just throw themselves under the bus for their leader!! Is there any limit to what this people will say or do to protect Obama? 4 men are dead, no doubt tortured, and still the main focus is someone having an affair and saving face for the White House!! Terrorist are probably laughing all over the world!!

    Yes McCain not only needs to apologize to Miss Rice ,McCain needs to ask for forgiveness ,he has said a lot of bad things about Miss Rice ,he has told lies on her ,and tryed to make her look bad ,and the only thing he did is make his self look more stupid then he already is,he needs to be put out of the white house,sick of republican that can't get their way they got to start lying on people ,and just going around making up lies on Obama and the people that work with him,it just goes to show that the republicans don't give two cents or one thought to the people of united states ,instead of working with Obama fixing our country ,all the republicans got on their minds is how they can fill their pockets more of our money,republicans has only shown us they don't care for people of united states ,it just goes to show we made the right vote.

    When one publically questions the integrity, honesty, competence of a person, insults them in tv interveiws and at press conferences as he did to rice common decency says if it turns out you are wrong you must say your sorry, simple as that. Anyone who does not see that simply was not raised right. There is nothing partisan about this issue if pne has any decency as a human being.

    McCain has thrashed his legacy, Formerly that of a war hero, now a pathetic sad bitter old man...well on his way to becoming one of history's more tragic figures. He should draw upon the Honor Code from days at Annapolis and do the right thing and apologize
  • #53

    Why are you prejudiced against men? I think you're just bitter at McCain because he's a "man"... a sad little "man." What does being a male have to do with anything. I think you owe McCain an apology for for your obvious sexist. And the racism in your comment? You owe an apology for that too. Why do you think that white men have small... uh... gentleman parts?

    @martydotcom - It is truly sad when one of the people I have respected and admired for so many years allows their own bitterness and anger to besmirch their own legacy.

    Yes I agree with you he should apologize. Last I heard a person was presumed innocent until proven guilty. McCain is guilty of stepping over that procedural process with his mouth. Since he was dead wrong in his assumptions and way off base with his accusations, then he should tuck his tail and apologize. That would be the manly thing to do.

    If she was not privy to the correct info by the time she went on the air 5 different times then something is very wrong. What I find interesting is, while one of our embassadors was slain after not receiving any requested help, that heads have not rolled. I can not think of any former President that would not have been in this with both feet. Obama's seeming indifference to this is what is so unsettling. Sure he did the cursory functions but that was about it. He presents as more interested in seeing that Rice becomes SOS instead of how things went so horribly wrong and fixing that.

    Susan Rice should apologize to the American people for lying to us, then John McCain should apologize to Susan Rice. In that order, also the president should apologize on national tv to the families of our four Americans who were killed in Benghazi because he didn't do everything he could to protect them. They asked for more security, the outpost was attacked twice before 09-11-12, and they were still hung out to dry.
