>> And a lack of pushback is why we're currently losing the Susan Rice debate... the false Narrative is flourishing that Republicans oppose Rice because she's black and a woman. The media doesn't care one whit that Republicans wholeheartedly backed Condi Rice (who is black and a woman) for Secretary of State <<

Actually, I think the fact Republicans wholeheartedly backed Condi Rice is one of the reasons we're losing the Susan Rice debate. Condi Rice was CLEARLY in over his head as SOS and her policies were decidedly pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel, but a bunch of "conservatives" turned a blind eye to that because she was a black woman with an "R" next to her name.

I think you have forgotten that Condi Rice was extremely qualified for the position of Secretary of State when she was nominated. She was considered an expert on the Soviet Union and had served on the National Security team during President George H. W. Bush's administration. Although I do not remember her being anti-Israel at all, you must admit that 9-11 changed the entire focus of GWB's foreign policy from Europe to the Middle East. Susan Rice has been the ambassador to the UN, but Obama's lack of judgment in putting her out there to defend the indefensible with lies should automatically disqualify her. That it doesn't do so shows what an arogant SOB (excuse my French) Obama is and how little he deserved to be elected POTUS in the first place, much less re-elected to a second term.
