Maureen Down, uber liberal columnist for the NYT, takes Susan Rice to task for her "performance" on the Benghazi terror attack
Maureen penned a piece this past weekend, destroying both Rices - Condi and Susan, for putting their ambitions ahead of their souls. In Dowd's opinion, Susan Rice wanted so desperately to be a player and be the next Secretary of State so she raised her hand to be the Admin. mouthpiece after the Benghazi terror attack.
And Susan Rice had a great "performance" in acting out her talking points. Except the problem is she knew they were false. And this wasn't a movie or a play - it's the NEWS.
David Petraeus testified basically what we all knew all along - that the day it happened - everyone knew what it was - an Al Qaeda attack NOT a spontaneous reaction by demonstrators to a video
Susan performed her best lie - and pushed the spontaneous demonstration thingy and in front of the camera disputed the contention of the President of Libya's Gen. Nation Congress - even though she knew he was right. Dowd says Rice should've been smarter about. And finally she tweaks Obama for saying "she had nothing to do with this" - if so, why make her the point person?? And Dowd says the damsel in distress play was lame.
