RUSH: Have you seen the news, ladies and gentlemen: "According to her most recent personal finance report, covering 2011 and filed in May 2012, Rice and her husband own between $300,002 and $600,000 in TransCanada stock. Those holdings brought them as much as $20,000 in income in 2011. ... Rice’s husband was born in Canada." It has been discovered here by a bunch of environmentalist wackos that Susan Rice has a conflict of interest in energy investments.
Now, what's happened here, it's very convenient, a leftist group has found the conflict. The Politico is reporting: Information, that has from all appearances been public information for three months, but which the National Resources Defense Council's On Earth blog noted about nine o'clock, ten o'clock last night. Why? Because it's time to throw her overboard. The regime is throwing Susan Rice overboard. She has served her purpose. She has provided the distraction from what was Obama doing during the seven-and-a-half hours of the attack on that consulate. That's the question. Where was Obama? Was he asleep? Was he disengaged? The death of four Americans. Susan Rice becoming the next secretary of state. So it's lefties that have discovered this. It's leftists, I'm sure with the assistance of the regime, so Susan Rice is gone.
Now, here's another example. This is Nile Gardiner of the UK Telegraph, and I like this guy. He's a great conservative writer. Here's the headline: "WH's Benghazi Bungling Is Proving a Disaster." Really? It isn't a disaster. Would somebody show me where Obama is being harmed by this? We look at this through the traditional prism. In the old days when responsibility and owning up, accountability, when all those things, when morality, when doing the right thing mattered, yeah, this could be a problem. But it doesn't matter now.
"President Obama hasn’t even begun his second term yet, but his administration is already struggling with a huge credibility problem on the Benghazi front." He's not struggling with anything on the Benghazi front. He's getting exactly what he wants on the Benghazi front. Total exoneration. The filmmaker is still in jail. Susan Rice has now been discredited. She's paying the price, and still nobody's asking, "Where was he during all this?" It is not a disaster for Obama. It was furthermore not a disaster for Obama because Romney didn't make an issue of Benghazi after the Candy Crowley-Obama gang-up on him in the second debate. We'll never know why. Maybe that's why Obama wanted to have Romney in for lunch today, thank him for that, in addition to demanding all of his tax returns.
