Is cable news to blame for Amb. Susan Rice’s problems? President Obama seems to think so…


UN Ambassador Susan Rice has been taking heat since she got it all wrong about the attack on Benghazi on September 16 and didn’t correct it for 73 days. But who is to blame for Amb. Rice’s problems? The White House, CIA or Amb. Rice herself? President Obama is pointing the finger…at us!! Check out what President Obama said about cable news in a TV interview today:

JULIANNA GOLDMAN, BLOOMBERG NEWS: Have Republicans’ attacks against UN Ambassador Susan Rice sort of boxed you into a corner? Would it look like a sign of weakness if you did not appoint her to Secretary of State?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: No, you know, I don’t really spend a lot of time on, you know, what folks say on cable news programs attacking highly-qualified personnel like Susan Rice. I’m going to make a decision about who’s going to be the best secretary of state…Susan Rice has done a great job as UN ambassador but I haven’t made a decision about secretary of state.
