Is it racist that 95%+ of blacks voted for Obama?
Probably - and then they are also largely brain dead idiots. You disagree? Move to a Black neighborhood. Even the blacks don't want to live there. Why? Crime, filth and black people.
It must therefore also not be racist if you are White and don't support Rice, who is a lying political hack. Who gives a healthy fluck about Marci Fudge-Packer's opinion. She is more of a racist pig than anyone she accuses.
Anybody the POS president nominates is likely either a criminal or incompetent.
Just say no to your congressional representative.
It is racist to re-elect a candidate who has kept unemployment amongst blacks and hispanics in the double digits after four years in office. Not to mention the ever growing national debt financed by communist China and the Saudi monarchy.

Not a dime's worth of difference. Except Bush was far less reckless. How many nations in the Moslem world has Obama screwed over already?
No, she was repeating information given to her based on CIA intelligence, and omitting some data in order to protect intelligence sources. That is what Gen. Petraeus said.

It is amazing that the Republiscum can make a scandal out of this big heap of NOTHING! LOL!!! You'd think she'd flown to Benghazi and shot those Yanks herself!

This is only one of many recent indications of how desperate the right is, knowing that the pendulum has swung back to the Democrats and the Yank populace is fed up with their Reaganomics neo-feudalist bullcrap.

LOL!!! Naturally I'm laughing my ass off.

As for your pro-terrorist, BS, you are being surveilled, boy.

This is coming from a political faction that said George W. Bush had a 98,000 acre ranch in Paraguay where he would rule the new world order.

Rice tried to cover up the planned attacked by al quaeda, out of fear of hurting Obama's campaign. Obama showed ineptitude in not giving U. S. personnel the proper security, while being fully aware that Libya, a middle east country, is very dangerous and in great turmoil. The 4 killed had virtually no protection on 9-11

You must get tired, running from a lie on one end to a lie on the other.

Susie Rice has all of the qualification's to be a democrat politician. She can lie with the best of them, has no shame or conscience and is well adapt at parroting the party line. Joe Stalin and Adolph Hitler would have killed to have such a remarkable woman in their regimes too.
Not only that, but she has hundreds of thousands of dollars invested in TransCanada and investments in Iran.

Either should disqualify her from a State Department position.

Let's face it, if you are white, or near-white, you are a racist. Bringing up the fact that Rice just plain lied and she is way out of her league only proves it.
Prety glib, Rusty, but I am white, and none of my black friends have ever thought of me as a racist. It takes a special kind of narrow-minded a'hole to be a racist.

Keep in mind... YOU LOST!!! The pendulum has swung back, and your rightist quasi-fascist crap won't work any more, even on the dumbed-down Yank populace who has apparently woken up to your BS.

Your boy Mitt the Romnoid sure did reveal the essential thinking of you GOP racists with several of his comments, notably that Obama was elected by minorities and white trash looking for handouts! LOL...

It is now going to be great fun after 32 years of putting up with Reaganomics 1981-2009, plus four of transition, to watch you bastards flipping out as we LEFTISTS enable the USA to catch up with the rest of the developed world, as we cease to be the backwards $hithole we have become thanks to you conservatives.

So... really, don't shut up... it is SO amusing to watch you bastards implode.

Um, you haven't heard about the "developed world" in CRISIS? Really? Everyone is talking about it. Google "Europe" and "crisis" and you will get over 400,000,000 links. It should sound familiar to you though. It's all about DEBT and a serious problem with GROWTH. You know.....government dependent/entitled societies. Surely you have heard about AUSTERITY? The deadly cuts in UK services? No? Hmm. Well, Europe's "leftist" experiment since WWII is bearing its' fruit. Enjoy.

I just worry for the Africans. You know how Europeans get when they need wealth. Of course this time they will have China to deal with.

No. Frankly, I had never heard of Ms Rice until she appeared on two of the Sunday morning news forums that I watch. On each, she attributed the murders in Benghazi to a video spoofing Muhammed that appered on You-tube. I don't have a You-tube account but my cousin, who is a retired military officer and academy graduate, sent me the link. I found it disjointed and amateurish, the sort of thing that a child might put together.(Of course, children today are much more computer savvy than their parents.) After viewing it and recalling the portrait of a Catholic religious icon covered with cow dung was defined as "art" I found the alleged Muslim outrage over this poorly done, disjointed video to be inexplicable. Given the time frame, the murders at Benghazi were quite clearly a "celebration" of the success of 9/11. Yet Ms Rice put her good name on the line with the video story and Obama rushed to apologize for the US once again. It is said that $70,000 was sent to assuage the hurt feelings of terrorists and those who would be terrorists. I can't see ayone judging Ms Rice on the basis of race or gender. For whatever reason, she put her good name on the line by affirming what she may or may not have known was a lie. She may have been duped by the Liars Club in the executive branch or may have known the plan and agreed to be part of it.(Politics is a dirty game.) Possibly she was promised Hillary's job as compensation since she has already made it clear that she is resigning. There are any number of scenarios that can explain her appearances on these Sunday talk shows. Reservations about her appointment to Secretary of State derive from her unprecedented appearances and the later evidence that the video story was not related to events in Benghazi. People who follow such matters would be inclined that either she either made the tv appearances to enhance her own chances to become Secretary of State as a reward or she truly had been kept out of the loop and honestly believed the video story. Either case, an effort at self promotion or ignorance of the facts of the matter, makes her poor cndidate to succeed Hillary. I can't see any connection between racism or sexism and her failure to be confirmed. If being a member of a minority is a guarantee for success, I expect my grandchild to be POS one day. Her father is of Brazilian descent and she is described on her birth certificate as "white/hispanic." With reddish hair and bright blue eyes, she looks like a little Irish kid. Nonetheless, she is considered a minority. She has it made

You can thank Wall Street and the Federal Reserve for that.

It was their great "experiment" with junk bonds and deriatives.

They sold them to europe as well as America and the rest of the world.

Then they helped hide the debt they bought from Wall Street.

Wall Street tactics have worsened the financial crisis shaking Greece and undermining the euro by enabling European governments to hide their mounting debts.
records and interviews show that with Wall Street’s help, Greece had engaged in a decade-long effort to skirt European debt limits.

One deal created by Goldman Sachs helped obscure billions in debt from the budget overseers in Brussels, the report said.

Even as the crisis was nearing the flashpoint, banks were searching for ways to help Greece forestall the day of reckoning.

The bankers, led by Goldman’s president, Gary Cohn, held out a financing instrument that would have pushed debt from Greece’s health care system far into the future, much as when strapped homeowners take out second mortgages to pay off their credit cards, the report said.

Meanwhile, in 2001, just after Greece was admitted to Europe’s monetary union, Goldman Sachs helped the government quietly borrow billions, the paper reported, citing people familiar with the transaction.

That deal, hidden from public view because it was treated as a currency trade rather than a loan, helped Athens to meet Europe’s deficit rules while continuing to spend beyond its means.

You're just another lying rightwing asswipe, and I've had enough of y'all's BS online and off for decades now. And so, up yours.

Paraguay? I know nothing of that, but this is your typical tactic... ignore facts and smear the left any way you can. Fox “News” tactics. It no longer works.

Rice didn't try to cover up anything. You make it sound like she knew about it in advance! LOL!!!

Are you a birther? You might as well be... you're that full of crap.

Oh really, Obama also was supposed to have known in advance? Well, then it sounds like we'll have to blame your boy “nucular” Dubya for 9-11, no? His incompetence in ignoring obvious threats from al Qaeda enabled them to pull that off. What an inept doofus that guy was!

You must get tired talking out yer ass all the damned time.

Keep your snide snarky rightwing comments to yourself. I am no longer tolerating that crap from you traitorous bastards. In person you will find yourself shut up one way or the other. You will speak about politics in a civil manner or enjoy the consequences of being an insufferable asshole.

Again, you're ignoring what Petraeus said. Rice was given info based on the desire of the CIA and govt to protect intelligence sources. She could not say what you want her to have said, at that time.

And there were no consequences of what she said! This “scandal” is utter BS! She did absolutely nothing wrong! Do you rightists throw a hissy fit over all the $hit the govt withholds from us? Oh no, only when it serves the political advantage of the dysfunctional Republican Party.

McCain owes Rice a BIG apology for behaving like an ass.

Also, notice that one of the Benghazi perps was arrested yesterday. More to follow.

Yep, bin Laden is dead and GM is alive!!! LOL!!! And THAT is your problem really, isn't it?

Wrong, traitor.

The global economy went into a tailspin because of the USA. You think it is coincidence that in 2008 as the USA economy circled the drain, suddenly everyone else has problems too?

Europe's social structure is far superior to ours, thanks to conservative nitwits like you who have inhibited progress and proper social evolution here since that criminal pig Reagan took office.

Reaganomics crashed our economy and the others followed.

I hate to agree with the Romnoid on anything, but Chinese malfeasance contributed to this problem.

If you think the fact that every developed country but the USA has universal healthcare, proper modern social services and so on, then you're just another retrograde redneck with no clue.
