This week, Susan Rice has been meeting with a number of Republican senators to try to explain why she gave deceptive answers on a series of talking head shows after the Benghazi murders. This is widely assumed to anticipate Rice’s nomination to replace Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. Well, these private get-togethers are probably not going as well as Rice might have hoped. After each of them, the GOP senator has a press conference where he or she explains why they are disturbed or disgusted with Rice. The interesting thing to me is that none of them seem to fault the individuals who are actually more directly to blame for the Benghazi fiasco, David Petraeus, who was head of the CIA or Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State.
