I do not like Rice.
She would mean the death of Israel.
...but not any longer.
I would rather see someone like Michael Steele.
I think you have lost your mind. She has screwed the pooch as SecState. Lord help us if she were a VP.
Oh come on.
(gently egging on poster)
Rino? A RINO? That’s the best you can do?
At least claim she eats Israeli babies, or something. :)
“At least claim she eats Israeli babies, or something.”
I was 4 sentences deep into the first post before I realized RINO says it all.
Mercy, I hope not!!!!!!
The Secretary of State, works directly for the President.
Condi doesn’t decide things for herself, as Secretary of State. She acts, for the President.
Condi is a brilliant, experienced professional. The fact she last week - for the first time EVER, finally publicly expressed an interest in being on a ticket - is hugh.
Hugh! I tell you. :)
“Condoleezza Rice for VP!! :) (shameless Condi vanity)”
Prefer a VP that would make me at least hold my nose for the ticket. She don’t fit the bill.....prefer a pro Israel rather than pro-Pali.
If you want a continuation of northeast big spending republicanism, shes not a bad pick...
If you want 4 more years of Dubya, she's not a bad pick..
But McCain wont pick her, she would be too visible.
McCain wants, because his ego needs, some one who's not going to break ground, that takes the attention from him. The veep can't appear smarter or more ambitious, the veep will have to be content with standing 3 paces behind and always being conscious of the lighting, so as not to throw a shadow on McCain.
Never forget this is not about us, its about John McCain and only John McCain, just ask him.
She’s pro-abortion, anti-Israel, and has been a failure as SoS. What’s not to like?
Sheesh - not only no, but NEVER!
Well, this poster has liked and admired Condi ever since reading about how the then-Soviet leader, was flabbergasted and didn’t quite know how to deal with - our Russian speaking Soviet expert who was in Moscow, helping to end the cold war.
Condi gets way, way more criticism on this board than she deserves, and her accomplishments are many.
Please think about, taking a closer look.
Rice is truly, an impressive individual. She’d be a GREAT candidate.
She really would.
She is for killing American unborn babies.
You will be begging for W before the next 4 years are over.
The Saudi’s sucked out Condi’s brains and replaced them with Folger’s crystals.
I don't doubt it one bit.
Condi is good but she doesn’t want it.
Push someone who would and has a handle on economics -
Mitt, the “Mormon” is fine with me. He’d be good for the economy. McCain is a moroon.
I’ll check back!!!!!!!!
She’s admitted she’s pro abortion (”mildly pro choice” was her misleading phrasing), which disqualifies her as a Republican candidate for any office.
Even if that were off the table (it’s not), she has a near zero Likability Factor. And she apparently tends to fall into victim mode for being black. Not attractive in a leader, regardless of party affiliation.
So, no thanks.
Condi was a disaster as National Security Advisor. She was and is a disaster as Secretary of State. And she would be a disaster as Vice President. Her foreign policy moves, particularly with regard to Israel, have been a complete joke. She’s been no better than Halfbright.
I have never heard her claim explicitly or implicitly any victim mentality. She is far too smart and too accomplished (and too conservative) for that.
I like Condi. I think she would make a great president, oops, I mean vice president.
It was posted on a thread here within the past few days.
I second your motion for the same reason.
Thanks for the link. Interesting article. I still don’t see where she claims any “victim” mentality. To the contrary, I like her even more after the read. I for one was all for boycotting the Olympics, but here opinion swayed mine in a very common sense way. That’s the kind of person she is. Succinct and honest. Yes, I agree with her that blacks have had a less than ideal legacy in this country, but I don’t here her defending victim status. To the contrary I see here as someone who was proud to be part of something (the No Child Left Behind program) that could help fix it. I still like Condi and think she would be fine VP.
I’m not surprised you can’t see it. You’re a Rice loyalist.
Meantime, I found the article about Rice I was looking for when I found the other one:
Condi is a very intelligent and accomplished person, you are entirely correct. However, I too have reservations about her performance as Sec. of State, She is also a reserved intellectual in temperament, and they generally despise campaigning, are also uncomfortable in crowds, and it shows. Nixon was a also brilliant, reserved intellectual, and had great difficulty connecting with the publc in the political arena. The press is extremely hard on people with that temperament in politics. Condi just does not have the personality for running for office, and she knows it.
Agreed. Romney would also balance the ticket by providing some credibility on immigration and economic policy. He also would help McCain win Michigan.
Rice was apparently a successful Soviet expert. But, we really don’t need Soviet expertise at this time. And the things we do need, she does not appear to provide.
Then any dumb shit can be Secretary of State?
I think she would be great.
Maybe even you.
Oh, if you studied real hard and cheated maybe you too!
PS: You didn’t seem to understand my response to the post so perhaps not. Maybe you’ll get some parting gifts.
she adds no votes to the ticket... not many, anyway... i believe her time has passed...
I understood you loud and clear.
This is the author of the article speaking. Not Secretary Rice.
Well, now I can sleep tonight.
You are probably correct. I think she is one of the most brilliant women to ever serve the US government. But she does have a cool and almost prickly exterior. I have heard that she is a huge pro football fan and she sometimes aspires to become NFL Commissioner some day. I think we should let her go to pursue that dream. God bless Condi, and I wish her nothing but the best.
The only difference between Rice and Mad Maddy is so far Laptops in the State Department aren’t missing. Other than that policy wise they could pass for political twins.
As I said in #31, I’m not surprised you can’t see it. I and many other conservatives see it plainly, from what she’s said. You, a Rice loyalist, are blocking.
If that were the only negative, it might be overcome, but it isn’t. I’ve already mentioned a couple of the big negatives.
Secretary of States number one job is to keep the peace. Hence she will take positions that we, here, hate.
I love Condi, and I would love to see a McCain/Rice ticket!!!
I don’t think we should elect American leaders based on their support of a foreign country. Let foreign countries take care of themselve.
I was listening to the Laura Ingraham Show this morning.
Tammy Bruce is guest hosting. She said McCain would not ask Condi because her personal life would not pass scrutiny.
Does anyone know what she means by that?
The problem is the State Department is ran by career beauracrats who are for the most part socialist democrats and generally baby boomers who grew up anti American during the Vietnam war.
People think that political appointees run the government but that is not the case. Its ran by the rank and file civil service, unionized bureaucrats who answer to no one.
Rice is a great person and I would love to have her as VP.
