breitbart.tv ^ | 12-12-10

Posted on 12/12/2010 11:22:26 AM PST by Justaham

Secretary Rice gives the greatest, most thorough and intelligent response to the criticisms of the decision to go to war in Iraq that has ever been made. As an added bonus, she also makes Katie Couric look shrill and uninformed.

Does anyone have a list of black conservatives who have publically stated that they DID NOT vote for Obama?

Thomas Sowell and Rev James David Manning the Preacher at Atlaw Ministry. Who knows the rest?

Katie just shrugs off the chemical weapons used to murder Kurds en masse as a triviality. I suppose that if you are royalty of Manhattan journalism such things are trifling. Hard to believe that CBS has kept the dizzy Couric in place this long as she continues her descending march into the ratings and ethical dumpster.

Honestly, how difficult can that be? Couric does a damned fine job of that without any assistance whatsoever.

Condi did a good job both now & being in the heat of the moment. Let's not forget she did come out of the “puzzle palace” (NSA).. privy to known & unknown(assessment of threat).

Katie was hoping for a GOTCHA~!

“Condi, we all know that the justification for the war was false, right?”

“mmmmph”

“GOTCHA!!- BUSH FAKED THE WAR HEAR YE HEAR YE WE WERE RIGHT ALL ALONG BUSH LIED PEOPLE DIED CONDI ADMITS BUSH WAS AS EVIL AS HITLER~!!!!!!!”

She would have climaxed right there on the couch

Good thing Condi is a lot smarter than her... but my question is: WHY did she bother to talk to Perky Katie in the first place?

STOP TALKING TO THE LIBERAL MEDIA

She didn’t even have a telepromter.

Imagine Obama with that much time without a teleprompter. He wouldn’t last 30 seconds without going into the Uh....Uh...uh mode, or starting to use his negro dialect.

she did a good thing here... she is smart... she knows her stuff... she educated some people with her response... unfortunately, most Republican and/or conservative politicians in WDC (house and senate) would not have known how to handle that question... they get taken in by the bias and are caught off guard... the bias was obvious in Katie's build up to the question and in the question itself... we have few deep thinkers in Washington... Condi was not taken by Katie--which probably surprised Katie...

Watts announced that HE HAD TO vote for Obummer, just because he was a Bro! I don’t count Watts as a true Conservative. You’re free to do so, but it dilutes the meaning of the term!

Watts looked Sean Hannity in the eye and STATED that he was going to vote for Obummer because he was a BROTHA! I doubt whether he SAID he was voting for Zero, but then sneaked into the voting booth and voted for McLame!

Katie does sound uninformed, but I don’t know where they get “shrill.” She sounds bored and nearly comatose. Or she is trying to sound “professional.”

Had Saddam Hussein remained in power, he and/his sons, they would be capable to taking actions that neither Couric nor Rice speculate on. Rice speaks of a nuclear competition between Iraq and Iran. There is also the possibility of a treaty between the two countries like that between Hitler and Stalin in 1939. Such a thing cannot be ruled out, along with the opposite which is further war between the two.

I would vote for Condi Rice for President without batting an eye.

That was THE most FABULOUS response to the snarky bitch I have EVER SEEN or heard regarding the Iraq War.

All Saddam had to do to avoid war was to allow the UN to freely inspect. He chose the war over allowing inspection.

Imo, there is nothing wrong with making a UN resolution actually MEAN SOMETHING. No one else will. The world knows we have certainly poured enough wasted money into that cesspool of garbage in NYC. Might as well make it stand for something. If the republican party moves this horrific laughable institution out of America I will be shouting for joy. Men who stone women and mulitlate them and still use black slaves HEADING UP HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSIONS? Oh...........pulleeeeeeeeeeeeeeze!
