Skip to comments.(Condoleezza) Rice focuses on the personal, not political (defends BHO, praises HRC)

Later, at an evening appearance at the Aspen Institute, Rice said she and Obama "covered the waterfront." "Despite the fact there are changes and tussles, there is still a foreign policy community that believes that foreign policy ought to be bipartisan," she said. "It was really great that he reached out in that way."
Rice rolled her eyes at the notion that Obama is a closet Muslim, and she defended him from criticism - led by former vice president Richard B. Cheney - that Obama has weakened the country. "Nothing in this president's methods suggests this president is other than a defender of America's interests," Rice told an audience that included presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett.
Speaking to Fox News's Bill O'Reilly, she lavished praise on her successor, Hillary Rodham Clinton: "I think she is doing a lot of the right things. . . . She is very tough. . . . I think she has done a fine job, I really do."
Rice even chastised former House speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) for his assertion that Obama has a "Kenyan, anticolonial" worldview. "That's over the top, and I don't think very helpful," she told Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC.

Homos are nothing but trouble.
rice is an idiot if she can’t see thru barry. or maybe she can’t bring herself to criticize a black man
She had Obama’s records. She’s sit by quietly as he has assaulted the American citizenry and alledged racism at us, played the racism card over and over and over.
Silence is consent.
You couldn’t give me her book.
She and Colon Bowel.
That she went anywhere near Andrea *the freak show* Mitchell tells me all I need to know about Condelessa.
And, she's obviously not read Dreams of my Father or she would know that Obama definitely has a Kenyan worldview = Muslim...
Not sure when people are going to finally wake up and realize that DemoRats, Muslims, and environmentalists are one in the same group or that DemoRATS are just being used as tools by the Muslims and environmentalists who clear aim is to destroy America as we know it.
Damn and I used to like her.
What’s wrong with these people?
The phrase "They all ... " looms before me.
Once again, Blacks behaving en bloc...based on race/liberalism/freeloading. How do you cure this disease?
Good luck with book sales now. Does she think the progressives who trashed her for the past 8 years are going to suddenly purchase her book? Her only base was conservative, and now it’s gone.
Michael Savage was correct in asserting that Rice is a "lightweight." I have seen nothing that would suggest the Hillary is "tough." As far as whether or not Obama is a Muslim is not as important as whether or not he is qualified to serve as President of the USA.
The lack of openness by the President in connection with school records, passports, availability of original, long form birth certificate, college writings, applications, and sources of funding, raises legitimate concerns. This stone-wall approach is unlike any other President this country has ever experienced.
Thanks to the Obama Administration we have the poor getting poorer and the rich getting richer, more TB, AIDS, bed bug infestation in our nation, more food stamps, more states on the verge of bankruptcy, more people are losing their jobs, their homes and their entire hard-earned way of life.
Don't forget JC Watts either. He also showed his true “color” in 2008.
These opportunists (not even good enough to be called RINOs), need to be ignored and put off in a corner. Giving them any type of audience gives them slivers of power.
You could be a principled person and say "I'm a conservative member of a Republican administration, and I will stick to my positions whether it helps me sell books or not."
Or You could be ambitious and say, "Whatever my past positions may have been, I will now do whatever it takes to pump up my sales and make some real money."
But Condi found a third way: "I will throw off any principles I may have had, and I will throw away any hope I had of getting good book sales. Instead, I will bow down before the black man in the White House. Because it's all about skin color."
> she cant bring herself to criticize a black man
That’s more likely the reason.
Condi is no idiot.
Think of what has happened to black opposition to 0bummer.
They are censured, censored, and cast as “Toms”.
Just her old boss...a Chump!
Leadership and Board of Trustees
Waiting for someone to ask her to comment on the Rev. Wright’s ugly personal attacks on herself!!!
I feel betrayed: Laura, Colin, now Condi...
are we stoopid or what?
Yeah, add her to Noonan, Buckley, Powell, the boob who was Bushie’s first spox (Scott something or other), Laura...
I’m sick of it - you can stand getting s**t on just so much...no moola from moi anymore...
