Liberals have rallied around Susan Rice, the UN Ambassador caught lying like an oriental rug about the Benghazi scandal. Rice is now being (laughably) considered to replace Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. Rice tried to quell critics earlier in the week by making the rounds to meet with prominent Republicans - a move which backfired after those who met with Rice confirmed that Rice is a low-grade moron who is merely capable of parroting the Obama administration’s illogical liberal theology masquerading as policy (foreign and otherwise).
Now the libs are all in a tizzy about some of Rice’s financial holdings. Mother Jones reported that Rice “holds millions of dollars in investments in Canadian oil companies and banks with stakes in the $7 billion Keystone XL Pipeline, according to a piece out today from OnEarth, a magazine published by the environmental advocacy group Natural Resources Defense Council.”
Supposedly Rice’s holding would benefit from supporting the Keystone expansion both in Canada and the United States. Of course, if Rice is confirmed as head of the State Department, she would decide the fate of the pipeline – a decision which was tabled by Obama in 2011.
"It's really amazing that they're considering someone for Secretary of State who has millions invested in these companies," Bill McKibben, founder of the activist groups 350.org and Tar Sand Action which have organized protests against the Keystone XL project, told OnEarth.
What will the liberals do? Their darling poster child has millions invested in the “ugly” oil transport and production industry. Rice’s investments counter the progressive propaganda that developing natural gas and oil in the United States is “harmful to the environment” (it is not) or “greedy” (it reduces our dependence on purchasing oil from other companies and promoted local economic growth in R&D, services and manufacturing).
