From 'Bombingham' to Bush: How Condoleezza Rice fulfilled King's dream
The Washington Times ^ | November 19, 2002 | Arnold Beichman

Who would have predicted in 1954, the year of the Supreme Court's landmark Brown vs. Board of Education decision, that in less than half a century two distinguished black Americans (and one of them a woman at that) would be sharing foreign policy decision-making with the president of the United States? Perhaps Martin Luther King might have included such a prophecy in his "I Have a Dream" oration.

the republicans wanted a full recount of the entire state

The Reps did NOT want a full MANUAL recount of the entire state.

For that matter neither did the Dems until time was just about over.

Thanks to Empress Harris, time ran out.

I'm not defending Gore!

I am so confused about these statements that I think I will move on to another thread where black is black and white is white......

Our position was clear from the beginning - either a full recount state-wide, or none at all...

The state law also mandated a MANUAL recount.

The Reps from the get-go were against a MANUAL recount, county or statewide.

Of course we were - because you demo-craps didnt want to recount the whole state - just Gore Strongholds... of COURSE we were against that...

let's put it this way - what the dems proposed was unconstitutional, so of course we opposed it... it had to be either statewide or not at all.... THAt was our position...

Tell me... do you read much?

The Reps position was clear from the beginning - NO manual recount statewide.

And Empress Harris made sure it wasn't going to happen.

Keep repeating it... maybe eventually it will come true...


(since I'm feeling benevolent today, let me tell you ahead of time that what I just said was sarcasm... can you say 'Sarcasm'? I knew you could... I bring this up only so that I can now explain to you that it does not work that way - just because you repeat a lie ad nauseum, does NOT mean it becomes the truth... always glad to help!)

If certain people weren't playing games they might get the point that the manager/coordinator role of the National Security Advisor is at the policy-making level, not the threat-assessment or operational level.

The NSA's primary arena of operations is the National Security Council, whose central members, besides the President, are the Vice President, the Secretary of State, the Secretary of the Treasury, the Secretary of Defense, and the Assistant to the President for National Security Affair. The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs and the CIA Director are not even members of the NSC, but advisors to it. The description of the NSC on the White House page doesn't even mention the FBI.

These are the personages among whom the National Security Advisor coordinates policy; I don't really think that comparing raw data from the CIA and the FBI is part of Dr. Rice's job description.

No, that is incorrect. 9-11 happened under the Clinton administration the effects were realized on 9-11.

I say again, what we experienced on 9-11 was the effects of 8 years of neglect and of diluting every intelligence service we have. The Clinton Legacy of divide and squander rained down on America that awful day just as surely as flaming jet fuel did.

I truly believe that the "dots should have been connected" prior to 9/11, and Rice as National Security advisor should be blamed for 9/11.

Please lay out PRECISELY what those dots were, so that we can all see how obvious it was.

If you can't, that will prove something, too.

They agreed to it but the Dems only wanted certain precincts recounted, and only certain ballots at that. Is this an argument of yours that you have supported on FR? No wonder you dislike the Bush admin.

You're George Snuffagumpalis, aren't you?

Of course it didn't. You live in your little world of made up information and speculation. Your posts on here are a nice collection of what someone who doesn't know what the he// they're talking about sounds like. Starting to think your point ids only to start a flame war; you can't possibly believe what you're writing.

No seriously, can we get back to the "connect the dots" thing? I know Tuco changed the subject because he made a complete ass of himself (and frankly as someone who used to work in the WTC I find it a bit insulting), but I'm interested in what fantasy he is able to create that backs his theory that ANYBODY could have predicted an event with no precedent. Tuco-ugly: Find me a psychotic baglady with tinfoil on her head who warned of airliner attacks on the WTC, and I'll say you are right. Otherwise, you are a boorish, pinhead.

I'm not going to bother. His response to me proves to my satisfaction that he is incapable of defending the accusation.

Once in awhile, Tuco has been entertaining here, but this is nothing but a troll post. He may get away with it this time, but if he doesn't provide substantive arguments, he needs to go somewhere else permanently.

You damn right a statewide recount never happened. Because Al Gore KNEW he would lose if they did it that way; that's why he only wanted counties where he thought he might 'manufacture' some votes counted.
