McCain: ‘Almost Speechless’ at Susan Rice’s Benghazi Claim
by Evan McMurry | 12:01 pm, February 23rd, 2014

On Face the Nation Sunday morning, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) literally laughed off National Security Advisor Susan Rice’s statement earlier on Meet the Press that she did not intentionally mislead in her September 2012 appearance on the Sunday shows in which she claimed that the Benghazi attack had been in part a “spontaneous response” to an anti-Islam video.

“I’m almost speechless,” McCain told host Bob Schieffer. “It’s patently obvious, first of all, that Susan Rice had no reason to be on the program, she had no involvement in it. Second of all, she read talking points, that we are now beginning to believe came from the White House, which were absolutely false. We now know that the CIA station chief on the ground sent a message immediately saying ‘not-slash-not spontaneous demonstration.’”

“And of course, the information was totally misleading, totally false,” McCain continued. “For Susan Rice to say such a thing is a little embarrassing to tell you the truth.”

It should have been more than McCain calling Rice out on this. The ones moderating meet the press should have as well.
"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?
