Romney needs to distance himself from both Bush and Obama. He can't go around saying "If you hate Obama, then vote for a Bush clone."
I like Condi.
Back to you...
ABC, ah man, there goes my slogan “Anyone But Commies”
Apart from Kissinger I can’t think of a single recent SoS who’s been spoken of in glowing terms.I happen to have a lot of respect for Condi...I think she’s smart,dignified,capable.I think.for example,that she’s *far* better qualified to be POTUS than is our Community Organizer-In-Chief.I,personally,think she’d be a huge plus for the ticket...either in the top spot or the second spot.
No, and screw this author and his revisionist dreams.
Condi “do you know who I am” Rice?
Wouldn’t be related to John “do you know who I am” Kerry?
A mark of character is to admit one’s mistakes. This is a refreshing difference from the ‘politics as usual’ lie, spin, twist, obfuscate, strategy employed by most professional politicians.
Usually those who admit their mistakes learn from them. Those who cover up their mistakes become less proficient at everything except covering up.
Bush and Condi are both professing Christians who have taken unpopular stands for their beliefs. And both love America.
I would vote for Condi for President OVER any of the current frontrunners.
I think Condi was a better National Security Advisor than a SecState.
She was a better SecState than Colin Powell, though.
Screw Romney. He agrees with most of what GWB did.
Condi seems like a nice person but reminding voters of GWB is a great way of joining the Obama 2012 campaign.
I can see where the moderator edited this article, which I did as well keeping it well under 300 words, but I wonder why he decimated the posting into one sentence?
I had high hopes for Condi.
She was big disappointment & turned out to be more of a Rino than I realized.
She was not so great an SoS, either.
If Romney is elected, he needs to do what GW Bush failed to do — clean out all the hold-overs from previous administrations.
And, he needs to bring in new blood — not old hacks from previous administrations.
That is part of the problem in Washington — too many old hacks and hold-overs who won’t leave.
It’s broken record season, so here goes. Like or dislike Condi, she brings nothing to the ticket that helps Romney. If anything, she will trigger resentment from plantation blacks. The fact that she swooned over Obama won’t mean anything to them. Even though she is the epitome of a smart, hardworking, talented, successful female, Condi won’t do much to attract the women’s vote. Last, but not least, not by a long shot, is that Condi’s politics are something of an unknown, except she is flexible enough to get a chill up her leg when Obama won, and that is way too flexible for me. Romney doesn’t care about her politics, but he knows political correctness won’t help him. Romney’s people know he has a conservative problem. In terms of ethnic demographics, his best chance to turn things is by winning the Catholic, Hispanic voters the Democrats are crapping on.
Haven’t we had enough incompetent, affirmative action people at the highest levels of the federal government, placed there solely because of their skin color and/or their personal plumbing?
People like Madeleine Albright, Condi Rice, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Janet Napolitano, Kathleen Sebelius and Eric Holder have largely been responsible for turning the USA into a laughing stock on the international stage and gradually moving us toward a national version of Detroit.
It’s time to stop the racist/sexist insanity and select people who have demonstrated the ability to perform the job.
If, okay when, it comes down to it, I’m not sure if I am going to vote for Mitt. Adding Rice to the ticket would make that decision for me. Just like with Palin, only the other way.
Condi Rice has never run for elected office and she's not going
to start now. Makes great headline fodder though.
I'd rather have her run for California rep, governor, or senate.
Condi would be a major asset to a future GOP administration but VP is a political job; she is not a politician and has no interest in that arena. It offers her nothing but grief.
I think you grossly under estimate her contribution to the post-9/11 successes of W's administration. It's not like anyone could halt North Korea's nuclear ambitions or resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
It doesn't seem the case for you, but I see too much of that on FR now, generally rooted in misogyny or blatant racism. It's vile and despicable. It's against the rules but such posters persist.
Don’t blame me for whittling this article down to one sentence!
The ‘moderator’ slashed it to this extent for whatever reason I have no idea. He commented to me that the WSJ dictated this, but I know this is patently untrue. His comments are now nowhere to be found.
I edited this to under 300 words before posting and now I wonder if these ‘moderators’ are exercising their police police in an unreasonable manner.
I, like most of you, donate money to this website and am increasingly agitated by these underhanded exercises of ‘power.’
