As the holidays and the New Year draw near, the rumors continue to swirl about the staffing changes in the Obama Administration.
The change that is drawing the most press is the possible appointment of Ambassador Susan Rice to be the next Secretary of State when Hillary Clinton leave the top-Diplomat post next month. Despite all of the controversy that she has created in light of her carrying the KoolAid for the White House in their alleged cover up of the Benghazi debacle, which left our Ambassador and three other brave heroes dead at the hands of TERRORISTS on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the White House seems willing to expend a great deal of political capital at the very beginning of the 2nd term in order to “reward” Ambassador Rice.
In light of what is known about Benghazi thus far, and the many unanswered questions, is Susan Rice the correct choice to fill Hillary’s spot?
The battle for Gov. Patterson’s “golden” appointment of a replacement for the Senate seat of our incoming Secretary of State, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, has turned into a family affair. New York’s Attorney General Andrew Cuomo (son of former Gov. Mario Cuomo) and Caroline Kennedy (Daughter of the late President Kennedy) are the top top named contenders for the appointment. Andrew Cuomo was married to Caroline Kennedy’s cousin. The relationship between the two contenders is even deeper than that, since Cuomo was a very close friend of Caroline’s brother, John Kennedy Jr., and he took on the role of family representative and spokesperson when John Kennedy’s plane crashed in 1999.
The Los Angeles Times is reporting that New Yorkers favor Cuomo over Kennedy as Sen. Clinton’s replacement. Many politicos are still defending Kennedy’s qualifications, but many believe that it will come down to the person who can carry more clout withthem into the Senate chambers, and many believe that despite her name recognition, Cuomo has the better qualifications to serve as the junior Senator from New York.
The Senate Foreign Affairs committee voted on Sen. Clinton’s appointment as Secretary of State, which sends the confirmation to the full Senate for a vote next week, which most say is merely a formality.
In Tom Cruise’s Jerry Maguire, Cruise and his co-star Cuba Gooding Jr., have a great scene where the line is ” Show me the Money!!”. In the case of Sen. Barack Obama, the chant will be “Show us the Proof”!!
Continuing to avoid the requests from Pennsylvania attorney Philip Berg, Sen. Obama refuses to produce any documents which have been legally requested in Berg’s lawsuit. Now, in Washington State, a lawsuit has been filed against the Secretary of State to challenge Obama’s name on the ballot for the General Election.
Steven Marquis of Fall City, WA, alleges very similar items as Berg, and states that the Secretary of State (Sam Reed) has a duty to ensure that the candidate on the ballot meets the qualifications.
In addition to this newest lawsuit, another blogsite has reported speaking with Michelle Obama, who is enraged that her husband’s patriotism and citizenship are being questioned. If the conversation is true, Mrs. Obama states that its no big deal that Obama was “adopted by his stepfather” (Lolo Soetoro).
I am not questioning Barack Obama’s love of this country, but I believe that he should show the respect that our flag and our anthem represent. To make the argument that we are an “oppressor” is to fuel the charges of those who hate us already.
And, it is so simple to resolve this matter: Show us the Proof !!
