GOP Senator Praises Susan Rice: Don’t ‘Shoot The Messenger’ On Benghazi Intel – ThinkProgress

A Republican senator on Wednesday praised U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice during an interview on CNN, saying Rice is a “very smart, very intelligent woman” and that she shouldn’t be held responsible for the misleading information she presented on the Benghazi terror attacks during her Sept. 16 Sunday show appearances.

The meeting began late and Commissioner Gwendolyn Knight asked the Police Chief to ask Mayor Priscilla Everette-Oates what time was the meeting going to start and her response was eventually. The meeting finally began around 10 minutes late.

So the interim Town Manager why is she on the payroll?

Where is the Town’s Videographer? Where is the Mayor’s husband? These two guys do not attend anymore. I wonder why?

After watching the video what did you get out of the meeting tonight?

I just don’t see why the Mayor and the Mayor Pro-tem do not just resign.
