(CNN) - Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations who drew heavy criticism from Republicans over her statements after the September attacks on a U.S. diplomatic mission, withdrew her name from consideration for secretary of state on Thursday.
In a letter to President Barack Obama, she said "the confirmation process would be lengthy, disruptive, and costly - to you and to our most pressing national and international priorities. That trade-off is simply not worth it to our country."
It is going to be John Kerry anyway. Next!
good. time to get a white male for this post.
Choose another liar Obama.
She was never qualified......
Shocker ask her how much money she sunk into the new pipeline ????
At least someone in Washington has some sense.
Good decision. She is a fan of African dictators, she can move there.
Must have been her Benghazi bungle.
She can thank McCain for that.
We need brave americans in that post. Its not for someone who lied to the american people.
I hate to say this but. I believe the Republican party has picked on every high profile minority person in this Administration. I think she would have done a good job as Sec of State
Wow, so character assassination works for the GOP.
I applaud her for putting up with the spanish inquisition from Flimsy and McInsane. They are shameless partisan hacks.
Obama: You are gutless. Letting McCain decide who will be your Secretary of State. Gutless!!!
She had two chances anyway, slim and none.
So the right wing witch hunt is finally successful. What a sad day for Dr. Rice – and an even sadder day for our nation.
Good, Now, why did you lie about Benghazi? Who told you to lie about it?
One more outstanding person that Obama has undermined.
This is a black day in politics for a qualified person to become the object of a white mans witch hunt. Shame on all of the people who pillaged her. My goodness!
Ha, Ha, Ha Sorry Barry, another affrimative action apointee down the drain.
I recommend Jon Huntsman. He was the only pub with half a brain.
That's too bad, as she is surely one of this countries premiere public servants! Is the old man (respected prior to this) McCain happy now, or does he have more revenge on his plate????
It is a sad moment. I am sure McCain and his friends can relax that they beat another black leader. I hope to see him giggle next time I see him in the TV. Susan Rice would have been an excellent secretary of State, if not for those mean Republicans who think they are royalty.
This administration and Hilary Clinton still have many intense questions to answer.
the GOP finally wins one this year.
Godless America causing such strife - stand your ground UN ambassador Rice, they hate you cause they ain't you
