Dozen House women defend
Rice over Libya comments

Associated Press, by Donna Cassata

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/16/2012 11:51:22 AM

WASHINGTON -- A dozen female members of the House staunchly defended U.N. ambassador Susan Rice against Republican criticism over her remarks on the deadly Sept. 11 Libya attack, suggesting the GOP lawmakers´ comments were racist and sexist. "It is a shame that anytime something goes wrong, they pick on women and minorities," Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, the next chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, told reporters Friday at a Capitol Hill news conference. Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham earlier this week called Rice untrustworthy and unqualified to be the nation´s top diplomat if

Comments:
Just like clockwork the Democrats start screaming racism and sexism. You knew it had to happen since Rice has two cards to play. Corruption and incompetence is never ever considered when it comes to them. They sicken me.

So now female House members have taken to defending substandard work and promoting lies from other females in Washington?

This is why corporations give women and minorities only non-critical "window dressing" executive positions. They cannot be held responsible for bad performance. Charges of "racism" and "sexism" are a universal defense.

Notice how the Republican woman who stood with McCain and Graham on this scandal, Kelly Ayotte, is not mentioned by AP´s Donna Kissasa. As a dutiful spreader of the narrative, Donna only writes about the old white men.

To expand on KarenJ1´s posting, it should read, Just like clockwork, the Dems and their media outlets start screaming racism and sexism.

Isn´t the Congressional Black Caucus by definition racist? A White Caucus would be described solely as racist.

McClain & Graham aren´t attacking her because she´s a woman; it could be anyone who they sent out on the Sunday shows.

Just curious. Were there times when President Bush came to the aid of Condoleezza Rice? I just don´t recall. Seems like she stood up for herself and was able to speak for herself and defend her positions without Bush running interference. I may be wrong, but I don´t believe so. Oh, and she did take flack as I recall and she is black and she is a woman.

Here´s the solution: Tell these nitwits that if a public employee, in a high position within the government, cannot be criticized for her actions and statements because she is a women, it is an unacceptable result.

It follows then that women should not hold high positions because we cannot hold them accountable.

That should really tick them off.

It´s taken me several decades but I finally have figured out what the "women´s liberation movement" was all about. Women are weak and we must be treated as such. You must never question how we do our job because, well, we´re weak and that would make us feel bad. We can´t be expected to pay for our own birth control or healthcare because, well, we´re weak and can´t figure out how to budget for such expenses. Shall I go on?

Where is Lady Justice´s blindfold? Where is equality evident in the 2012 Congress? Has there ever been such willful ignorance & cavalier dismismals of the value of just THE FACTS by the conniving, prejudiced pols in America´s Capitol? Does no one in the apparent cesspool of deceit within countless special interest cliques in Washington D.C. EVER simply stand up and demand the truth anymore?!!

Corruption & special interest clicques are destroying equality in America by dismissing & usurping personal accountability and replacing each individual´s responsibility for his/her own integrity with prejudices, favoritism, and now even, ´goodies,´ for favors/votes. The Founder´s Declaration and Constitutional principles of Life, Liberty and Justice for All are now to just be ignored as the Candy Man cometh? ...What is wrong with this picture?

WHAT could be as divisive as 0bama´s single issue supporters?!! That IS IS IS the dem party now, groups of self-centered special interest groups clawing for as much as they can get for themselves rather than supporting equal respect for each individual human being. Yet, these statist pols are so sure of themselves they now flaunt their abuses of the power entrusted to them by voters. The more Americans demand transparency & accountability, the less honesty results from the current crop of politicos.

History reveals the political tactics which result in tyranny, but America´s unique history has always pointed the way to freedom through the timeless principles of individual liberty. Why are some pols appartently abandoning such hard fought for independence now? ´´Freedom isn´t free!´´ Shame on Congressional cliques which ignore their sworn oaths of office!

The statist pols, -dems & RINOS have no shame.

The title of the article is deliberately misleading. It should read "Dozen House Democrat Women", not just "Dozen House women". The only racist, sexist talk I hear is coming from these Democrat women. I call it "The Democrat Noise machine". Aren´t we all tired of this phony indignation from all the Democrats all the time? Notice whenever a Democrat speaks it is always with indignation? And almost always against a Republican? I remember whenever Teddy The Swimmer spoke about something it was always with this grating indignation in his voice? It is like they are always trying to cow the opposition? I´m not sure what the technique is called, but they are always using this technique. Obama uses it all the time.

About a half-dozen years ago, a different Rice, a different controversy, and the two sides were virtually reversed -- with Dems assailing Condi and the GOP crying ´sexist´.

I´m not likening the two controversies, just the behaviors of the two parties, and noting how hard it is not to get cynical about politics in general, when the public dialog so often resembles the shouting from a kindergarten playground.

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million.
