Opposing Susan Rice Sexist? What About Opposing John Kerry?

This is an example of why I left the Republican Party to be an independent. Our side no longer deals with problems honestly. The leadership just makes up stuff to fight about. Rice spoke from bad intelligence. The Republican leadership does not talk about the intelligence failure, they attack the messenger. Compare that to how we went into Iraq on bad intelligence. The GOP leadership put out a blizzard of spin to protect themselves. To this very day, with no WMD's found and an entire war having been fought for no good reason, these people are still making up stuff. Then I see that these same GOP leaders fought against budget increases for diplomatic security in Libya and around the world. The hypocrisy is disgusting.

Rice did not report from bad intel. She was to lazy or incompetent to check some facts. It was known five days before she spoke on the Sunday shows.

No sir. Your transparent perfidy is disgusting. A small amount of research, mostly just reading readily available material, would provide more than sufficient confirmation of the presence of the WMDs prior to evacuating them to Syria. As to bad intelligence re Libya: horse hockey. These folks trotted out Rice as the most defensible peon based on gender and race. Simple as that. And, BTW, the Dear Leader personally purveyed the same horse manure to the UN as did Rice. Perhaps he wasn't "read in" on the details. Would have ruined his golf game.

Over 500 tons of yellowcake was shipped from Iraq to Canada in 2008. Check out the AP stories on this. Remember Joe Wilson of Valeria Plame fame?

Other degraded chemical artillery rounds were also found. But you keep sticking to the urban legend that no WMDs were found. Most believe it anyway.

Well I think we're close to finding out how much stuff was made up. If the U.S. will block any transportation routes from Syria to Iran, we may well find those WMD's in the hands of terrorists when they finally topple Syria. If they give Syria enough time as they did Saddam, those weapons will be scuttled into Iran just before Syria falls.

Every world intel organization reported the WMDs in Iraq. Many notable Democrat senators were on tape saying that there were WMDs, (Senators Kerry, Kennedy, Clinton, Durbin, and many more.

She does not suffer from bad intelligence. She is suffering from lack of intelligence. The evidence was there before, during, and after her repeated appearances.

What on earth was a diplomatic mission doing in the most unstable part of a country that just underwent a civil war in which we helped to depose a dictator. This region was a known haven for terrorist groups and other countries had already pulled out of the region.

Oops i forgot. Once you got Bin Laden the war on terror was over or was it over when it was proclaimed as an overseas contingency operation?

We just lost an election by 3.5 million votes. An election that the leadership told us was in the bag. Yet you insist upon believing this self serving fiction.

When our own side did the same thing during the GWB Error, the leadership pretended it wasn't real. It didn't happen. They are still re-writing history, refusing to learn from their mistakes.

Unless and until our side returns to reality we will see Republican Party membership continue to shrink and power continue to ebb away to the Left.

Intellectual dishonesty, political hypocrisy and a legislative policy of obstructionism over compromise is killing the conservative movement.

Liberal Washington Post editorial page commentator Ruth Marcus sees sexism in the Republican opposition to naming the current U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice, as Hillary Clinton’s replacement as Secretary of State. Marcus trots out a well-worn story from the 1970s. She relates the formidable Alice Rivlin’s recollections as first Director of the Congressional Budget Office. “Over my dead body will we have a woman in that job” was the reaction of the House Budget Committee Chairman. (Chairman, Ooh! Bad!) That was Dr. Rivlin’s testimony. Dr. Rivlin sailed through confirmation to chair the CBO and is widely respected...
