Dems Ignore Rice’s Record of Failure, Deem Her ‘American Treasure

Today, five Democratic Congresswomen attacked Republican criticism of U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice, who is reputedly Barack Obama’s pick to replace Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. They actually called her an “American treasure.” This was after Barack Obama called Republican criticism of Rice “outrageous.”

Reps. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.), Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio), Karen Bass (D-Calif.), Terri Sewell (D-Ala.) and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) released a statement which read:

Over the last several days, Senators McCain, Graham, and [Kelly] Ayotte (R-N.H.) have gone to extraordinary lengths to level unfair attacks against a stalwart American whose public service spans two administrations. We call on Senators McCain, Graham, and Ayotte to immediately retract their troubling remarks and shift focus to the important and critical security concerns of our diplomats abroad.

The five Congresswomen have scheduled a press conference for Friday morning.

Susan Rice an American treasure? These women must be nuts. Let’s take a look at this “American Treasure.” We’ll save the most damning facts for last.
