Morning Joe Rips 'Old White Guy' Republicans For Going After 'Younger Woman-of-Color' Rice
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 11/20/2012 6:50:52 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

From Joe Scarborough to John Heilemann, Katty Kay to Mark Halperin to Willie Geist, it was unanimous on today's Morning Joe. Whatever the substance, whatever the policy, Republicans would be making a massive political mistake by opposing the possible nomination of Susan Rice as Secretary of State.

Summed up Scarborough the MJ zeitgeist: "do a bunch of old white guys want to make their first big battle, post-election, a battle going up against a younger woman of color?"

I honestly did not realize she was black before all this came out! I did, however, realize she was an incompetent bungler who only says what the Prez wants to be heard.

It’s so funny how the only people who continue to point out race are liberals.

Indeed it is. It's a proven & effective method to NOT have to answer questions. And the right just allows it to take hold time & again. They don't want to be seen as bullies, don't cha know?

You know, I realize Joe Scarborough was once a Republican Congressman, but was he *really* one?

You can't utter words like this:

"do a bunch of old white guys want to make their first big battle, post-election, a battle going up against a younger woman of color?"

without having others wonder if you ever had any integrity at all.

Good point. The elderly Eric Cantor is almost seven whole months older than that poor young ingenue Susan Rice.

Why can't he just give her a break?

She's three years younger than the President! How can she be expected to operate at a peak level of competence this early in her career?

So is Joe saying Ms. Rice isn’t capable of doing the job on her own without a white man stepping in to defend her? I thought she was a professional woman capable of doing her job and defending her positions. Apparently liberals think she is weak and unable to do her job properly without their help.

So, when is it OK to criticize a minority?
Only when he’s a conservative, I guess.

I guess what he’s saying is that, like Barack Obama, she was picked due to her skin color with the intent of using “race” as a criticism shield.

Exactly. After this last election, I am so burned out from watching politics as I suspect most are. I say don't watch any of the networks or cable news shows. Sink their ratings and let them go under. Comcast is already hurting. If no one watches, they'll disappear. Nothing would make me happier than to see the obama cheerleaders lose their jobs and have their 401k's melt down.

Rice’s unblinking statements, puppeted on talk TV, are sum and substance of the Democrat COVERUP (orchestrated by the WH).

Using the Democrat’s Watergate Rules, if Rice made the statements knowing they were lies, that’s reason enough—under Dem’s own rules-—for a govt official to end up in prison

YOO-HOO OBAMA The real issue is the 4 dead Americans in Benghazi & WHY the govt made no effort to help them.

Rep. Gary Ackerman, a Democrat from New York, lacerated Repubs: “The stench of hypocrisy that hangs over this city today emanates from this. I’ve listened to my colleagues talk about the President of the United States and others in the administration using terms ‘deliberate’, ‘lies’, ‘unmitigated gall’, ‘malfeasance,’ which is malicious and knowing evil-doing, ‘disgust’, ‘coverups’. “If you want to know who is responsible in this town, buy yourself a mirror!” Ackerman said the administration asked for $440 million more than the Republicans were willing to give for worldwide security.

=======================================

COMMENTS Talk about distractions---Benghazi had n-o-t-h-i-n-g to do with funding....BUT "getting on your high horse" is Democrats' favorite sport.

Ohaha mounted up----he was incensed when Sens McCain and Lindsey Graham charged UN Amb Susan Rice with misleading the nation when she appeared on five Sunday TV talk shows, puppeting each time, that the killings were a spontaneous reaction to an anti-Muslim video.

FEM-LIBS CHECK THIS OUT Obama rode out, masquerading as a white knight to save Rice, a damsel in distress, declaring: “Amb Rice appeared at the request of the White House to give her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her.....she was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received.”

Oh please, we all know Rice’s rendition of the terror attack that killed four Americans was demonstrably false. An indication of her unerring stupidity----Rice misled the nation.

When she unblinkingly made comments "based on her understanding of intelligence she had received", Rice gave undeniable witness to the educational fallout of affirmative action.

Since I don’t see Oliphant anyhmore, thank you for that. There are different rules for conservatives and liberals.

When I was in college in NY, I took German as my language. (Math people did have to read German in the old days.) I got the occasional German mag, including Simplicissimus, which no longer exists. It was political commentary, with lots of cartoons. It was not respectful of authority, with often nasty humor.

It was not at all respectful of Africans either, and the cartoons were unkind, to put it mildly. The cartoons were so over the top that they were simply unbelievable. Great skill in pen and ink, however.

The Oliphant cartoon would have been right at home there in the 60’s. But his is politically correct. How the world turns!

Is not Old White Guys demeaning jus younger woman of color. Personally it is not the woman’s skin color it is her damn stupoidity in making the comments based on a falsehood. Has she taken the time to recant what she has spoken. No, instead the piece of proverbial dog poop in the WH claims he is now responsible for whatever she said. Proverbial double speak.

If Rice wants to represent the USA on the world stage, and to be taken seriously there, she has to be able to play with the big boyz. She can’t hide behind her race or gender.

Does anyone remember seeing Condi Rice do that? Even once?

Put on your big girl panties, Susan, or exit stage left.

Alan Colms on Kelly's America Live made the same argument as Joe did ( post title) : That Republicans criticizing Rice is racism.
The answer should be :
You didn't tell us that if we elected or re-elected Obama then we would not be allowed to criticize him or his team his entire term. You needed to tell us that before the election because clearly you had no such rule for GWB, McCain or Romney. We need the freedom to criticize our national leaders in a Democratic Republic.

The answer to Morning Joe is :
So your criticism of Obama the past few years on your show was racist? Going after a black man?
