WASHINGTON, Oct. 16 (UPI) -- Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is defending the Obama administration's foreign policy against attacks from fellow Republicans.

Ummmm. What foreign policy?
of course, he’s black, that’s enough
She’s a pro-abort. They can never be trusted.
She was such a mistake for Sec of State.....
Blackbirds singing in the dead of night...
Exactly what I expected.
I remember when Freepers used to regularly say, “Condi for President!”
And my response was, No thanks. She’s pro-abort.
Well, if you don’t draw the moral line at killing innocent babies, where do you draw the line?
Didn’t this bitch once compare the Palestinians’ experience with Israel to her family’s experience with the Ku Klux Klan? She is truly despicable. Of course it is always RACE RACE RACE, just like Powell. She has no honor at all.
A disaster defends a disaster. Shocking!
She got a taste of power and she likes it. Political power corrupts everything and everyone it touches.
Didn’t want her or Colon Powell (sic), or Romney or Giuliani or Huckabee or McCain. Can we please do better than these modern day Judases?
Wasn’t she a protege of Scowcroft?
I wonder what price she got for selling out? We shall see...
Well, at least I thought she was smart. But this will get her nowhere. The Democrats are going down the tubes. This endorsement will mean nothing more to conservatives than the Colon Powell endorsement did. But it will permanently wreck Condi's reputation with her former supporters.
Does she think a bunch of antiwar lefitsts are going to give her a job, with her previous reputation? Especially when they are right on the edge of the cliff themselves?
But it does go to show. If you lack basic principles, you cannot be trusted.
How could she? How COULD she?!!
So, she’s pro-START, among other things?
We learned during her tenure as SECSTATE that she is arabist, not a friend of Israel.
I began to like her less and less, but still am shocked she is “coming out” like this.
Shut up and play the piano, Condi.
Did you read the article? That sure wasn’t much of a defense. Condi was being diplomatic. That is afterall, what she was, a diplomat.
“She was such a mistake for Sec of State.....”
OK, i've defended her up until this statement. This is wrong and you know it Condi.
The fact is that even a broken clock is right twice per day. Even 0bama's foreign policy has some good aspects. Don't ask me what though.. I don't think I could list any. But Condi knows more stuff than I do.
What was once full of promise is gone, gone, gone. Is loyalty only skin deep?
make that integrity
Rice, Powell, and 0bama. All three are now “down for the struggle”.
Wow! 17 comments before the suggestion to read the article! Just amazing. It’s so much easier to comment on the headline. Reading the article could take time.
Condi was just being polite.
This is really disturbing. Rice naively supports the Usurper who has bashed her former boss on a daily basis for two years and incessantly criticized the USA at home and abroad. Condi is a useful idiot.
Isn't Scowcroft and advisor to Obama. One of Obama's wise old men.
They are foreign policy realists. Scowcroft, Rice, Powell, Gates, Gen. Jones, Gates, Kissinger, Brzezinski, Nunn, Hamilton
As opposed to being foreign policy neocons like Cheney, Bolton, Wolfowitz, Feith, Perle.
As opposed to being liberal interventionists like Clinton, Biden, Joe Lieberman.
UPI wrote it. They are known for pure liberal trash. The whole story is six paragraphs long.
Excerpts: “Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is defending the Obama administration's foreign policy against attacks from fellow Republicans.”
“Appearing at the Aspen Institute in Washington, D.C., Friday evening, Rice said, “Nothing in this president's methods suggests this president is other than a defender of America's interests.”
“She has refused to join in criticism of the current administration....”
“Speaking to Fox News's Bill O’Reilly, she praised her successor, Hillary Clinton.”
Now you want us to shout hosannas about her exactly why?
bet she voted for him
Ain’t that the truth.
“Rice naively supports the Usurper who has bashed her former boss on a daily basis”
I agree-pretty sad.
It’s all about being black.
I was going to buy her book, now I will not.
Good bet. There's a 90+% chance of being right.
Methods to me suggest a process or set of procedures. So Condi has parsed this well, because Obama’s decisions, achievements, and lack of action in some cases do indeed suggest he does not have the nation’s best interests in mind.
It reminds me when Dubya had Clinton back to the WH for some ceremony - it might have been the unveiling of BJ’s official portrait. Anyway, Dubya said that nobody enjoyed being president more than Clinton. Everybody in the room (and many here at FR) thought that George Bush was praising Clinton. But, to Bush that was an insult of the subtlest kind. Dubya believes that being president is an awesome responsibility - with solumn duties that are not to be enjoyed for the most part. The hedonistic pleasure that Clinton, and now Hussein and his Wookie, derive from the office is anathema to George W. Bush. Truly a great American (to coin a phrase).
What little respect for I had for Condi(and that was from what many of us already were aware of--her being a MAJOR RINO) just went, bye-bye!
I agree. she is still part of the Washington system albeit from Palo Alto. But she is still one of THEM.
I am rapidly losing all respect for her.
Next will be: JEB BUSH FOR PRES.!
It’s wrong but it does confirm what conservatives think of Condi. And that would be the same as we think about General Powell.
“But Condi knows more stuff than I do.”
Looking at your ‘about’ page I am quite sure she does not. She is constantly boosted as principled and brilliant. What are the accomplishments, specifically? She was a minimally adequate functionary for a lackluster political dynasty which accomplished little and at great cost.
Who is this supposed to impress? A “fake black” who supported Bushitler now supports Obama? Who is supposed to care in the Obama world?
Stay out da Bushes.
