According to TPM LiveWire, "Wednesday, President Barack Obama took the opportunity to praise United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice. 'Susan Rice is extraordinary,' Obama said in a response to a question shouted from a reporter. 'Couldn't be prouder of the job she's done.'"
Well, she did take the Benghazi heat off him.
That's some fine work there! As the brouhaha over U.S. UN Ambassador Susan Rice continued, it appears MSNBC got their Rices wrong. If you'll notice in the lower left of the screen shot below, former Sec. of State Condoleezza Rice has been confused with Susan Rice.
It could happen to anyone...right?
It pays to know the right people: "According to a report from OnEarth, which cites U.N. ambassador Susan Rice’s financial-disclosure reports, the potential secretary of state nominee holds significant stakes in several Canadian oil companies and banks that would benefit enormously from the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. The construction of the pipeline was blocked by the State Department earlier this year, but, if nominated and confirmed as secretary of state, Rice would be involved in the postponed approval process. Rice, whose net worth is estimated around $33 million, owns between $300,000 and $600,000 worth of stock in TransCanada, according to her 2011 financial disclosure report. TransCanada is the original developer and sole owner of the Keystone Pipeline project. The company has already started building the southern section of the pipeline, and continues to seek government approval to build the northern portion."

"The American public? We could take 'em or leave 'em." - "In response to a question from reporter Major Garrett on whether the Obama administration's mishandling of Benghazi raises 'core questions of basic competency,' press secretary Jay Carney revealed that Barack Obama 'is not particularly concerned' about whether Susan Rice misled the American people."
I guess we missed the 2012 election slogan: "Re-elect me and I won't give a @#$%!"
From The Bliss Index' Econ 101 class: Remember, one of the first lessons is, "Money goes where it's treated best." The latest example - "Two-thirds of millionaires left Britain to avoid 50 [percent] tax rate: Almost two-thirds of the country’s million-pound earners disappeared from Britain after the introduction of the 50 [percent] top rate of tax, figures have disclosed."
California, are you paying attention? (Probably not.)
In case you were wondering: Yes, the dog is edible. (Which wouldn't be the first for Mr. Obama...)
