Rice is not worthy of secretary’s job

In its editorial defending U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, The News criticized the Republicans in their “slobbering” assault on her. How childish, how amateurish!

The president said that Rice knew nothing about the Benghazi attack. Why then was she chosen to speak? Obviously Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the appropriate spokesperson, refused to be caught mouthing such a lie.

Either Rice knowingly lied, and such dishonesty should bar her nomination to replace Clinton, or she unknowingly lied, and such incompetence should similarly bar her.

If someone needs to take a breath, look in the mirror.
