Kelly Ayotte: The Invisible Senator at the Benghazi event

“We owe it to the Amer­i­can peo­ple to make sure that we under­stand: Exactly what hap­pened, What went wrong, Why couldn’t the great­est mil­i­tary in the world respond when an attack occurred almost over a seven hour period, and why were there at the min­i­mum, mis­state­ments made and cer­tainly mis­im­pres­sions given to the Amer­i­can peo­ple about the nature of this attack in the imme­di­ate expla­na­tions pro­vided by the admin­is­tra­tion in two weeks fol­low­ing the attack.” Sen Kelly Ayotte (R-​NH) 111412

There is a lot of talk today about Beng­hazi after the press con­fer­ence yes­ter­day con­cern­ing Susan Rice, and the administration’s actions of Sep­tem­ber 11th of this year.

On Morn­ing Joe, on CSPAN they high­lighted Sen­a­tors Lind­sey Gra­ham and John McCain and the ques­tions con­cern­ing Beng­hazi. Dur­ing their seg­ment with Angus King the sen­a­tor elect from Maine they asked about Sen­a­tor McCain and Graham.

There were how­ever three sen­a­tors at that press conference.

Sen­a­tor Kelly Ayotte (R-​NH) was also there and spoke to this issue, (as she had dur­ing the cam­paign). She gave a strong state­ment on the sit­u­a­tion and answered ques­tions as well.

You would think it’s kind of hard to ignore Kelly Ayotte at that event, She is tall (she tow­ered over both Sen­a­tors McCain & Gra­ham) but she is a younger, pho­to­genic woman who had a strong inter­est in this mat­ter. I’d think that would be some­thing to play up instead of just “two old white guys”.

I sug­gest that is exactly WHY she is left out.

It’s all a ques­tion of neg­a­tive mar­ket­ing. You can’t ignore John McCain, he is a for­mer Pres­i­den­tial can­di­date and a war hero, but you can dis­miss him, Lind­sey Gra­ham has been con­sid­ered a pro­tégé of Sen McCain for a long time, if you want to pooh pooh McCain it’s fairly easy to do the same to Gra­ham. He was a mem­ber of the impeach­ment crew vs Bill Clin­ton and is just another south­ern white guy.

But Kelly Ayotte is a rel­a­tively young sen­a­tor, she is an up and com­ing mem­ber of the GOP and in fact the high­est rank­ing mem­ber of the GOP in office out of New Hamp­shire. I mean how many pho­to­genic north­east Repub­li­can women, backed by Sarah Palin, who are fear­less con­ser­v­a­tives in the Senate?

I sub­mit and sug­gest that a con­ser­v­a­tive woman who is a ris­ing star is exactly who the left and the media doesn’t want high­lighted and a real effort is going to made to con­tinue to down­play her and keep her unnoticed.

And of course if she is left out, then it is two old white guys beat­ing up on Susan Rice a woman of color, but if Kelly Ayotte is mak­ing points like this:


Let’s also not for­get that, I think you all appre­ci­ate you don’t end up on every sin­gle major Sun­day show with­out affir­ma­tively putting your­self out there of want­ing to carry for­ward a mes­sage on behalf of the administration.

…that nar­ra­tive sim­ply doesn’t work.

Kelly Ayotte is going to be in the sen­ate till at least 2016, I sus­pect you are going to be see­ing a lot more of her on this issues and oth­ers. The MSM may want to play her down because she doesn’t fit their template.

I have no inten­tion of play­ing along.

Update: To see what I’m talk­ing about look at this story from Politico

Obama specif­i­cally rebutted Sen. John McCain (R-​Ariz.) and Sen. Lind­sey Gra­ham (R-S.C.), who ear­lier Wednes­day called for a “Watergate-​style” inves­ti­ga­tion into the attacks and said they don’t trust Rice because of her state­ments on Beng­hazi. Rice is seen as a top con­tender to suc­ceed Hillary Clin­ton as sec­re­tary of state.

Kelly who? They quote the president:

If Sen. McCain and Sen. Gra­ham and oth­ers want to go after some­body, they should go after me,”

Oth­ers? Oth­ers? There were only three peo­ple there. Sen Ayotte is “oth­ers”? Why not say “Sen­a­tor Ayotte”? Because that doesn’t fit the nar­ra­tive

“We owe it to the American people to make sure that we understand: Exactly what happened, What went wrong, Why couldn’t the greatest military in the world respond when an attack occurred almost over a seven hour period, and why were there at the minimum, misstatements made and certainly misimpressions given to the American people about the nature of this attack in the immediate explanations provided by the administration in two weeks following the attack.” Sen Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) 11-14-12

There is a lot of talk today about Benghazi after the press conference yesterday concerning Susan Rice, and the administration’s actions of September 11th of this year.

On Morning Joe, on CSPAN they highlighted Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain and the questions concerning Benghazi. During their segment with Angus King the senator elect from Maine they asked about Senator McCain and Graham.

There were however three senators at that press conference.

Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) was also there and spoke to this issue, (as she had during the campaign). She gave a strong statement on the situation and answered questions as well.

You would think it’s kind of hard to ignore Kelly Ayotte at that event, She is tall (she towered over both Senators McCain & Graham) but she is a younger, photogenic woman who had a strong interest in this matter. I’d think that would be something to play up instead of just “two old white guys”.

I suggest that is exactly WHY she is left out.

It’s all a question of negative marketing. You can’t ignore John McCain, he is a former Presidential candidate and a war hero, but you can dismiss him, Lindsey Graham has been considered a protege of Sen McCain for a long time, if you want to pooh pooh McCain it’s fairly easy to do the same to Graham. He was a member of the impeachment crew vs Bill Clinton and is just another southern white guy.

But Kelly Ayotte is a relatively young senator, she is an up and coming member of the GOP and in fact the highest ranking member of the GOP in office out of New Hampshire. I mean how many photogenic northeast Republican women, backed by Sarah Palin, who are fearless conservatives in the Senate?

I submit and suggest that a conservative woman who is a rising star is exactly who the left and the media doesn’t want highlighted and a real effort is going to made to continue to downplay her and keep her unnoticed.

And of course if she is left out, then it is two old white guys beating up on Susan Rice a woman of color, but if Kelly Ayotte is making points like this:


“Let’s also not forget that, I think you all appreciate you don’t end up on every single major Sunday show without affirmatively putting yourself out there of wanting to carry forward a message on behalf of the administration.

…that narrative simply doesn’t work.

Kelly Ayotte is going to be in the senate till at least 2016, I suspect you are going to be seeing a lot more of her on this issues and others. The MSM may want to play her down because she doesn’t fit their template.

I have no intention of playing along.

Update: To see what I’m talking about look at this story from Politico

Obama specifically rebutted Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who earlier Wednesday called for a “Watergate-style” investigation into the attacks and said they don’t trust Rice because of her statements on Benghazi. Rice is seen as a top contender to succeed Hillary Clinton as secretary of state.

Kelly who? They quote the president:

“If Sen. McCain and Sen. Graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me,”

Others? Others? There were only three people there. Sen Ayotte is “others”? Why not say “Senator Ayotte”? Because that doesn’t fit the narrative
