Rice: 'American Strength Begins At Home' (Matthews prompts Mitchell to ask "birther" questions)
MSNBC ^ | August 29, 2012 | Condi Rice

Posted on 08/29/2012 9:23:04 PM PDT by Seizethecarp

Transcript @3:15: "This is Chris Matthews. Andrea, could you ask the secretary...her speech was so overpoweringly positive...was it kind of a rejoinder to all of the birtherism and the narrowness that she has heard in her party?"

@5:15 (Andrea)"Do you feel that there has been a very troubling question of race and of prejudice in this campaign by the birther movement and those who espouse it?" (Condi) "The birther movement is an extreme and there are extremes on both sides of the political spectrum. The great majority of the people here and the great majority of people in America believe that we are one America."

Americans have been vocally skeptical about nearly everything politicians have said and done since the settlement of Jamestown. Concern about the constitutional qualifications of a President has nothing to do with racism, and is mostly a problem of his own creation.

Chris Matthews and Andrea Mitchell should be ashamed in general, but for demeaning an African-American President by holding him to lower standards based solely on his race in particular.

I didn’t like your answer because it both, at the same time, made no sense and was wrong. Apparently you don’t like being shown that you’re wrong, so you stuck out your upper lip and and ran away.

For the record, I did not call you stupid. I said you were being stupid about being wrong. Now THAT is being a fool.


Have a good day.

Are you employed by the Republican party?

Do you like the direction the Republican party is going?

Are you happy with Romney being the candidate?

Are you happy with the spinelessness of the R majority house?

These are not rhetorical questions, I really wonder.

Hoping to clarify your response to me.....I find it to be really rude, unless I am missing something

“All of that was covered between July 2008 and mid-2010. But of course you wouldn’t know that.”

Sorry if you thought the above was rude. Since you didn’t come on board Free Republic until later in 2010, I thought it would be obvious.

There was a huge amount of discourse concerning BHO2 starting in 2007 and continuing up to mid-2010, and much of it wasn’t on Free Republic.

Some places have shut down, like the Texas Darlin’ blog, but some, like Beckwith’s blog, still exist. There is a huge amount of information on his site:

Obama’s people were working furiouly to scub off the internet any information concerning his birth in Kenya. They were very busy in early 2008 and didn’t get around to finishing the scrubs in Africa until mid-2010.

Another good source is, An American Expat in Southeast Asia

Read as much as you can of these two blogs. The information is absolutely eye-opening.

If you have questions on the natural born Citizen requirement of the U.S. Constitution, I can fill you in on that, too.

Yes, you are right. There are many on their side who are truly evil... and some on the GOP as well, but theirs is an insidious, generational evil that destroys families, communities and opportunity for all.
