Once again a Democrat blames racism for something that has NOTHING to do with race.
As Obama’s national security advisor Rice knowingly helped spy on members of the GOP. Now that investigations are underway Rice is refusing to testify and her reasoning is the oldest one in the book. Rice believes that the GOP is only coming after her because she is a black woman, no mention of the fact that she broke the law and knows it.
When all else fails, play the racism and sexism cards. Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice is now refusing to testify on her actions regarding unmasking of individuals. And she’s claiming it is a GOP witch hunt because she’s a black woman. SMH. Seriously?
Rice is not taking one bit of responsibility for the unmasking scandal under Obama either. When asked by New York Magazine why she is the center of attention in the scandal, she of course referred to both racism and sexism as being the reason. Not her actions, which were at the very least unethical and at the most, illegal and prison-worthy.
Carney isn’t an African-American woman, of course. Does Rice credit that for the disproportionate amount of scrutiny she’s gotten? “I don’t know,” she replies. “I’m not being a smartass when I say I’ve given this a lot of thought, and I’m trying to understand it better. All that stuff happened while I was a sitting public servant. I perhaps mistakenly assumed that once I was no longer a sitting public servant, and a private citizen minding my own business and trying to go to my daughter’s soccer games with more regularity, that I would not be of interest to these folks. Um … Silly me. So this has prompted me to really try to get underneath that question.”
She mentions that other women in public life of all races have come in for some pretty rough treatment. Hillary Clinton. Condoleezza Rice. The other Rice, says this Rice, “took a lot of stuff. Not, frankly, I don’t think, to the same extent I have, but that was ad hominem.” I point out that she has a reputation for being tough, and a strong-willed woman who seems sure of herself makes a certain kind of man nervous.
