In what would appear to be a sure sign that the Obama administration’s leftist allies, perhaps with the President’s go-ahead, are preparing to throw current U.N. ambassador Susan Rice under the bus, Alex Guillen at the Politico reported at 6:14 p.m. on information that has from all appearances been public information for at least three months, but which the National Resources Defense Council’s On Earth blog noted about an hour earlier.
Obama seemed to go to a lot of trouble setting up Susan Rice to be Secretary of State by making her tell such a ridiculous lie for him and ensuring that unlike Sec. Clinton, Rice was obviously completely loyal to him.
Unnoticed in the YouTube fiasco is that promoting the idea of a spontaneous reaction to the video, demonizes Muslims as not in control of themselves. This idea was sold as a protest that got out of control.
Obama persisted in this outrageous lie, so he really owns this.
