    THE COLD WAR QUEEN remained frozen in facts that melted into fiction as she talked. Speaking last week before the National Association of Black Journalists, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice said, "Let us be very clear about why we went to war against Saddam Hussein. Saddam Hussein's regime posed a threat to the security of the United States and the world. This was a regime that had pursued, had used, and possessed weapons of mass destruction." Rice did not dare tread upon the issues that were not clear. Her cocksure posture could not hide the fact that she made no other mention of weapons of mass destruction in her prepared remarks. The United States has yet to find any after nearly five months of war and occupation. This was after a war buildup where Bush officials boasted they were certain where the weapons were.

    Just as significant is that there was not a single reference in her set speech about Saddam trying to acquire nuclear weapons. Before the war, Rice said, "we don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud." The scary vision of mushroom clouds was repeated by Bush and General Tommy Franks, head of Central Command. Vice President Dick Cheney declared Saddam to be a "mortal threat" on his way to "nuclear blackmail."

    In a question-and-answer session after her speech, Rice continued to assert that she was "certain to this day that this regime was a threat, that it was pursuing a nuclear weapon."

    wow, amazing i have to explain to a member of the losing team that his team lost
    just look at the score
    Obama 2, romney zero, zed, nada, zip
    winger partisans pretending not to know that they are. what a joke



    Of course you cannot explain this "crap" and feel Barrack Obama would get the country out of debt,
    we should have been in a surplus when Obama arrived. unfortunately, his predecessor spent what had been a national surplus on two wars of choice and massive tax breaks for the rich

    ... get everyone working again,
    instead of the massive job losses that were going on when Obama took office, we now see consistent job increases


    have an open government,
    what do you want to know that is unavailable to you, which information was not also closed to you during the dicknbush misadministration


    restore American pride internationally,
    done. from the arab spring, to the ending of two wars which never should have been begun
    and no more torture
    plus, American leadership no longer viewed as incompetent by foreign leaders


    stop lobbyists from running amok in Washington, and so on.
    when a republican packed supreme court insists that making campaign bribes is the equivalent of free speech, why would anyone not then expect to see government being put up for sale to the highest bidder


    That's the crap you can live with, huh?
    the residue of the dicknbush regime makes things more difficult. that awful era of government pushed America backwards to be certain. but now we have a president who is moving our nation forward again, despite a republican dominated congress which overtly schemes against him; so much for your expectation that politicians should be working for America instead of their partisan interests

    Every time a leftist objects to these characterization of not being very bright they always end up proving the point against them.
    you are the last person on these boards who would be relied upon to gauge a forum member's intellect
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    Is that what I said?

    What I did say that the Dems will make personal attacks on any Candidate, and a Republican Black women would likely be their favorite target.

    Are you unfamiliar with Condi's credentials?

    Leftists are not 'idiots', for the most part, but they certainly tend to be not very bright.

    So you admit she did not say what you said she did 100 times?

    I don't believe she has run for elected office. Correct me if I am wrong.

    How many times should she have told that lie? She made the rounds and said it as many times as she was asked. She was a prominent mouthpiece for the run up it the war and her resume is just full of that poppycock.

    Such a cop out.

    Romney was a bad candidate, plain and simple and conservatives will blame anything but that for 2012.

    Re: Condi Rice Blasts Obama on Weakness, Leadership

    I like Rice and thought she was a good partner in the Bush Administration....but this:

    "“There’s a vacuum because we’ve decided to lower our voice. We’ve decided to step back. We’ve decided that if we step back and lower our voice, others will lead, other things will fill that vacuum.”
    Seems ignorant to me. It almost seems to her that unless we are at war, we are weak.
