    "President Barack Obama's choice as U.N. ambassador acknowledged Wednesday that the United Nations was unlikely to take decisive action soon to halt Syria's civil war, and she pledged to work to eliminate what she termed the organization's anti-Israel "bias.""

    Heh, that is really going to mess with the narrative some people have about our interactions with Israel...

    Power might never apologize for America, but her boss has. America needs to apologize for her boss.

    The UN is used to leadership coming from Washington, but there has not been a leader in the WH since 2008.

    those are just words she used to placate conservatives. they will mean nothing if she is confirmed. we know the truth is not even a minor inconvenience to the current misadministration.

    "those are just words she used to placate conservatives. they will mean nothing if she is confirmed. "

    They aren't just words. These positions of hers have annoyed a decent number of liberals and she's had them for years. She's too much in favor of military intervention for my taste and she's too agreeable with everything Israel wants. Israel's an ally, but that doesn't mean we should agree with all of their policies, like their settlement expansion.

    atl134,
    I hope you are right concerning Power, but I have learned to trust nothing the BO cabal or anyone they nominate says.

    If those are really her views, she won't last long in the BO misadministration

    "Power might never apologize for America, but her boss has."

    funny you would mention 2008 isn't that when this failed rhetoric dates back to, how has it worked for the GOP the last 7 years?

    George,
    still having problems with math? 2013 - 7 is 2006, not 2008, as you infer.

    lost can say any nasty thing he believes about the current administration, but his pining for the good 'ole days of 2008 is pretty amazing. Most Americans saw it differently. GWB certainly didn't leave office with the country better off than when he arrived.
