Susie Rice has always struck me as being lazy and incompetent, similar to Barry Obama.
In this case, with even the most moderate republican senators opposing Susan Rice's nomination, and a nasty political fight brewing over the Fiscal Cliff, there's a real chance that Obama didn't have the votes to get her confirmed.
I'm not sure if the decision to withdraw was Obama's or Rice's but it certainly was political...
NSA during 9/11. The mouthpiece who trumpeting we didn't want the "smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud" and bolstered the false allegiations of nuclear weapons in Iraq?
Presented the talking points re Benghazi on Sunday morning talk shows she had been given by the intelligence community?
Yeah that's the same.
Her Obama White House handlers didn't want her in a confirmation hearing that would have brought focus, detailed attention, and forced media coverage to the Benghazi-Gate Scandal, that the MSM has largely and purposely ignored to protect Obama. So she "voluntarily" removed her name from consideration.

Social skills is also a qualification a Sec. of State should posses. Susan Rice is well known at being abrasive which she has admitted in interviews, and she can be very defensive. Not the qualities you when representing the president.
For those keeping count that's two able bodied competent public servants lost to Republican blundering: Petraeus and Rice. This is just one more more example of their ongoing struggle to bring the government to its knees.
A press conference .... really? Don't you have to be "nominated" before you withdraw?
This is what happens when you sacrifice yourself on Obama's altar. Let this be a lesson to those who fall for Obama's crock of excrement. He just used her and then threw her under the bus.
[QUOTE=Sprightly;8222149]I read Rice's resignation letter. QUOTE]
Do you have a link to this resignation letter?? I though she simply withdrew her name from consideration to replace Hilary as the next Secretary of State..
As far as I know, she will still be a UN ambassador...Did she resign from her post?
