Skip to comments.Morning Joe Rips 'Old White Guy' Republicans For Going After 'Younger Woman-of-Color' Rice
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?"

So is this the new politics, in which race trumps substance? Ping to Today show list.
Is this a ‘white on rice’ thread?............
Why does anyone listen to that network or any of its commietators? Frankly, I care more what the worms in my yard dirt have to say than them.
Ahhhhh the sweet stench of “POST RACIAL” America. Smells great.
“...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?”
What do a bunch of old white guys have to lose by doing so?
The GOP needs to pull their thumb out and keep going after ALL of the crooks and liars.Put the pressure on Hillary as well as BOzo.
She looks to be of mixed race, Joe. Which race are the angry white dudes going after?
Where were these d!p$4!ts when the Condi Rice was being attacked?
I never would’ve even heard of Morning Joe without the benefit of Free Republic.
Im an old white guy and what’s wrong with going after young women may I ask if they are willing... eh?
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.
So, basically, Joe is saying that minorities shouldn’t be expected to be responsible for their actions ...As someone who isn’t white - FU Joe
Not new, ever since collective white guilt became AA
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 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.
When will we ever get it... accorting to the Democrat media machien... PEOPLE OF AFRICAN DECENT ARE NOT CAPABLE OF STANDING ON THEIR OWN, MUST BE SUPPORTED, DEFENDED, AND CAN NOT BE HEALD ACCOUNTABLE!!!!!... as soon as we get that through our thick white heads the better we will all be and the country will be all.... well..... something good...
If they want your stuff you are to give them your stuff
All Gods children got a purpose
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?
Joe Scarborough is going to wake up one day and realize that he is simply one of the Poleznye Idioty.
The soft bigotry of low expectations.
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.
MSNBC: The Racist Network
So . . . these are the new rules of politics? You can’t criticize or hold responsible a minority politician/cabinet official for ANYTHING, unless said minority is a Conservative Republican?
A boarding house chamber pot is a cleaner receptacle than a leftist’s braincase.
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.
Superficial and meaningless propaganda.
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.
The woman repeated lies.
Ambassador to Libya!?!
(What a great place to hide Susan Rice...'til this blows over)
Huh? Most of us love Condi... oh.. that Rice. The incompetent liar, yeah I despise her, because well, she’s an incompentent liar. Oh and secretly I really just don’t like female and minority liberals, the white male liberals are all fine by me (/LIBTARDSARCASM)
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 Rices 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!
This woman either lied or is completely incompetent. Either way, she is not suited for further service.
So ... the leftists reveal their reflexive racism and inability to comprehend "equality".
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.
They were part of the leftist, racist mob throwing brickbats and rotten fruit at her.
If I had the time, I would put a pic of the two ‘Rices’ side by side and under each list the opposition comments and derisive comments made by pundits and hacks and the MSM responses................
Exactly. Rice is just the domestic slave. Gutless creep D.C. Republicans won’t go after Obama.
If I had the time, I would put a pic of the two Rices side by side and under each list the opposition comments and derisive comments made by pundits and hacks and the MSM responses
You shouldn’t have to do it. The GOP surrogates should be all over social media hammering the double standard. They just don’t get it.
I thought she was just incompetent and corrupt.
They are too busy kowtowing to The Won..............
When you hear the race card being used your closer to the truth than the libs want you to be.
With friends like Joe.........
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?”
