The bipartisan Political Ruling Class look out for their own, always.
Last Friday, October 15, 2010, former Bush administration secretary of state Condoleezza Rice, a supposed Republican, took time from her book tour to meet one-on-one with Obama in the Oval Office.
Glenn Kessler of the Washington Post reports:
The White House said Obama wanted to discuss a range of foreign policy issues with her.
Later, at an evening appearance at the Aspen Institute, Rice said she and Obama “covered the waterfront.” “Despite the fact there are changes and tussles, there is still a foreign policy community that believes that foreign policy ought to be bipartisan,” she said. “It was really great that he reached out in that way.”
Rice rolled her eyes at the notion that Obama is a closet Muslim, and she defended him from criticism – led by former vice president Richard B. Cheney – that Obama had weakened the country. “Nothing in this president’s methods suggests this president is other than a defender of America’s interests,” Rice told an audience that included presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett.
[...] Speaking to Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly, she lavished praise on her successor, Hillary Rodham Clinton: “I think she is doing a lot of the right things. . . . She is very tough. . . . I think she has done a fine job, I really do.”
Rice even chastised former House speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) for his assertion that Obama has a “Kenyan, anticolonial” worldview. “That’s over the top, and I don’t think very helpful,” she told Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC.
Obama’s reckless spending is bankrupting America, piling on our national debt in trillions of dollars. As of October 10, 2010, the “Total Public Debt Outstanding” was $13.616 trillion, which is 94% of America’s annual GDP (gross domestic product). The debt is projected to nearly double to $20 trillion by 2015, but is expected to increase to nearly 100% of GDP by 2020 and remain at that level thereafter. [Source: Wikipedia]
But Condi Rice assures us that “Nothing in this president’s methods suggests this president is other than a defender of America’s interests.” Everything’s just okie dokie!
If Rice ever runs for elective office — walk, don’t run, from her as fast as you can! She’s a RINO!
