Her article posted in the link below slams the President for his “sexist defense” of the UN Ambassador for her appearances following the Libya attacks on TV shows to exploit a radical movie as the culprit.
Evidently Kirsten Powers is concerned about the fallout now over the President’s “chauvinistic” leadership where his women employees have to deal with the heat of the press and certain Republicans on the hill. But, she also wants like the rest of us conservatives to know what really happened…..yes. She is a strong liberal democrat demanding the truth of what happened to 4 men killed for no reason in Libya.
I have watched her for several years on Fox News and found her to be outspoken but well liked by the Fox team. She has a sense of humor and is not afraid to speak when it goes against the grain of the left. Maybe her new found Christianity has had something to do with her evolvement to the truth.
Her bio speaks of how she grew up Episcopalian but ventured into atheism. Later in life she now calls herself an Orthodox Christian; prefers herself to be an Evangelical but says it comes with too much baggage. I must admit she has a point with that one. Automatically it is given a “bad rap” due to the heresy factors which may or may not be true, but depends on how the receiver views it.
She married Dr. Marty Makary, Professor of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University in 2010. He may have had something to do with her progression into Christianity. He is of Coptic Egyptian origin.
Besides Kirsten’s opinionated rant towards the President’s gallant heroics is her fierce accusations as to why Rice was doing the presenting in the first place instead of Hillary Clinton. This novel call to have a Democrat such as Kirsten point out the same facts the Republicans are that Susan Rice “knew nothing about Benghazi” is a formidable argument. Oh, what is the phrase? Backtracking?
For a liberal pundit, such as Kirsten to backslide into a Republican corner on such an important issue is commendable. The seriousness of this attack has been downplayed by the Obama Administration as if it never occurred. There are families waiting for answers.
I believe in giving credit where credit is due. Kirsten has come out swinging for answers. Like many of us in the dark on this unnecessary evil, we too want the truth. She boldly announced her displeasure with the President’s handling of Benghazi and her feminist layers of contention screams the nod for Sec. of State should not be Susan Rice.
My heart took a leap as I read her column. Her viewpoint of the “feminist strategist” she claims has lent itself to refer to the President as having a “conceited argument” over his helpless, lowly Ambassador.
In other words there are times we women may need the strong arm of a man, and there are times we don’t. This time was one of the “don’t” times.
When I first saw the video of the President lashing out in protection of Susan Rice, the disgust of his arrogance once again took precedence. It was as if he was a parent yelling at his adult children to behave. If we don’t do as he tells us to, there will be consequences to disobeying his direct orders. Who does he think he is?
Kirsten Powers should be admired for putting aside her liberal approach in searching for the truth of this criminal activity.
She also deserves a cupcake for her brilliant and forthright stance expressing she will never need the President to use his “Gladiator” resilience to rescue her from the “big bad wolf.”
