    However I think, realistically, the biggest reason she is being criticized is because every little thing Obama's admin does seems to get scrutinized.
    Nearly as badly as George W's!

    Of course Georgy boy didn't have the media to defend him_

    Being a racist is certainly one reason. But sour grapes and a need to "punish" those that stole victory from their party seem to be all the rage in Washington these days.
    One thing I haven't heard is even one logical criticism that doesn't make them look like the biggest hypocrites in history.
    That "other" Rice ran around the talk shows claiming Saddam would send "mushroom clouds" to America if we didn't invade Iraq. Yet she was supported by every Republican even after we found there was not even a mustard gas canister left in Iraq.

    Yes, but it was Dick Cheney's job to defend the president_

    But as a journalist, it is absolutely not *Katie Couric's job_

    It really depends, has anyone ever challenged a white person like this?

    Re: Does challenging Susan Rice make 0ne a racist?

    One would need to know the basis of the challenge.

    Just challenging the confirmation per se is simply not enough information to determine if the challenge is an instance of racism.

    It can't be ruled in OR out without more information.
    I've moved on to a better forum (scienceforums.net). Facts matter, and I don't have the time or energy for putting up with the pretense that they don't. PM me if you'd like me to get in touch with you when I'm done developing my own forum system, likely towards the end of 2013.

    Calm down. Switch to decaf and loosen your tinfoil.

    When I post in a thread, I respond to the topic as it is framed.

    The topic, as framed in its title, is "Does challenging Susan Rice make one a racist?"
    The OP simply reads "What is your thoughts?" (by the way, it should be 'What are your thoughts?'...but I digress)

    The answer is We Can't Know If Opposition to Susan Rice Is Indicative of Racism Without More Information.

    What part of that answer, praytell, do you find objectionable, and on what grounds?

    Who is Susan Rice?
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
