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.
Fascinating. None of that addressed anything regarding "austerity" and all the "cuts". These enlightened countries are the ones cutting public services. Why?

Just got through reading a BBC article about the cause of the "crisis" and there was not one mention of the US. Hmm. Certainly some do blame the US while others blame Germany and some even blame the UK. But that doesn't explain why these superior nations are obsessing over their own government debt. Maybe you should school them on what they should be focusing on instead - but then you might not be as "evolved" as they are so how embarrassing for you.

I'm not a conservative but it is weird that you lash out at me while your precious Euro governments are the ones who are implementing policies based on cuts and growth. Maybe if you calm down and stop ranting you will see that I am just referring to what the "enlightened" ones are talking about.

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

Until the 'Right' learns how to go low and play the race card, the sex card, the class card, or the homo card they will never win. It seems to be working for the lefties.
It is just that I would rather be honorable and fair minded than pond scum.

The "right" - in the government - are just a bunch of political bureaucrats who merely react to the "left" as the left lays down the ground rules, defines the terms, and then changes the rules and the definitions of the terms. They are for the most part empty suits who like to grow government as much as anyone else. The pundits like to go on about "Liberty" and all that and love to praise Reagan and it's the glaring contradiction and hypocrisy that makes people mistrust them when it comes to actual policy. It's why Romney didn't win. They are just an empty political party that morphs and shifts in order to stay in power......It's why Romney lost even though Obama got millions of less votes this time. Obama did not "beat" Romney......Romney just lost.

Or maybe they can just be part of the human race, and be treated accordingly.

You can't always get what you want, Scooter. Since you're not honorable or fair-minded, you get to be what's left.

No. Condoleeza Rice is an accomplished woman, who happens to be on the wrong side of the issues.

Many a time, heroes are the ones you never here about. The true backbone of any culture. Today they are muted and the "talkers" have taken over. It seems bullchitt thrives in dying nations and usually ends up dangerous.

In other words,she needs to get back to the Plantation and be a good little Negro. Same goes for those other run away slaves like Clarence Thomas and Allen West who dare to think outside the Black approved Plantation narrative.
