Susan Rice: “I’m Upfront with the American People”

6 June 2014 / 86 Comments

Jim Acosta, CNN’s Senior White House Correspondent, interviewed Susan Rice and asked about her comments regarding Bergdahl serving with ‘honor and distinction.’  She, of course, defends them – which comes as no surprise.   But, it’s later in the interview that Jim asks the most interesting question.

Jim:  “…you’ve been accused by republican critics of being fast and loose with the facts during some of these Sunday talk show appearances.  Are you being upfront with the American people?  Or, are you being guided by talking points too much when you go on these programs?

Susan:  “Jim, I’m upfront with the Ameican people, and I always do my best on behalf of my country, and I do my best until the facts that we know them.”

Um…what?  Guess she didn’t have talking points for that question.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
