    Quote of the Day – Juan Williams Edition 

    If she is truly on the fence about a White House run, I would suggest she go for it if for no other reason than to rub it in the faces of these pompous jackass professors.

    Juan Williams on the controversy surrounding Dr. Rice giving a commencement speech at Rutgers University.

    Liberal Logic – Susan Rice and Syria Edition 

    So the administration is on a full court press right now trying to change hearts and minds about Syria.  So, in thier infinite wisdom they have decided to send none other than Susan Rice out to do it.  You remember Susan Rice don’t you? The woman who went on five different Sunday talk shows to discuss how Benghazi and the death of four Americans at an oupost there was due to YouTube video, even after they knew full well it was a terrorist attack.

    You can’t make this stuff up.  Truly.

    Quote of the Day – Condoleeza Rice Edition Part 2 

    Fifty years ago today, a nation was inspired by those who marched for change and demanded equal rights as promised in our Constitution. As a child in Birmingham, we were reminded to insist upon these rights as we faced the turmoil in our own city. We have come a long way but we still have work to do. The United States must stand as an example to those around the world who still seek equality. We must not stop the important work endowed upon us by our Creator that all men and women are created equal.

    Quote of the Day – Susan Rice Edition 

    Today, Acting CIA Director Michael Morell and I met with Senators McCain, Graham, and Ayotte to discuss my September 16th public comments regarding the attack against the U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, and the intelligence assessments that formed the basis for those comments. I appreciated the opportunity to discuss these issues directly and constructively with them.

    In the course of the meeting, we explained that the talking points provided by the intelligence community, and the initial assessment upon which they were based, were incorrect in a key respect: there was no protest or demonstration in Benghazi.

    While, we certainly wish that we had had perfect information just days after the terrorist attack, as is often the case, the intelligence assessment has evolved. We stressed that neither I nor anyone else in the Administration intended to mislead the American people at any stage in this process, and the Administration updated Congress and the American people as our assessments evolved.

    The Administration remains committed to working closely with Congress as we thoroughly investigate the terrorist attack in Benghazi and bring to justice the terrorists responsible for the tragic deaths of our colleagues, Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. We also look forward to the findings of the Accountability Review Board and the FBI investigation.

    Really?  The CIA knew it was a terrorist attack immediately.   The talking points were changed, someone absolutely intended to deceive the American people.  The question is who and why.

      Rice was chosen to tell this story because she was in a position of knowing nothing about the Benghazi attacks. She was given BS info as the truth, so she relayed that false info believing it to be true. Technically then, she did not lie ….. at first. She served the admin. well …… at first.

      Fascinating isn`t it that a person in her position could remain so well insulated from the truth for so long. Oh yeah, she`d make a great SoS !

        I am happy to finally hear someone else say that. I don’t believe she purposely lied when she spoke. She is the fall guy. I am not willing to call her a liar because the proof of that just isn’t there. She should have checked into the matter more carefully, but that doesn’t make her a liar. Just incompetent. Oops, my racism and sexism is showing.

    In My Time – Dick Cheney 

    I just finished In My Time by Dick Cheney.  I have to say I heart this man.  I also have to say he was the reason that I did not vote for George Bush in 2000.  I knew that my state would go to Bush, so I figured I could go with my gut and not vote for a ticket that I felt had serious issues.  I am sooooooooooo glad that he won.  Gore never would have handled 9/11 the way that Bush did.  Cheney had a big hand in how 9/11 was handled. 

    Cheney writes about his youth, his family, and his professional career.  The man has had a very interesting life.  On that there can be dispute.  Cheney was the son of democrats and grew up to be über conservative in virtually all his stances. 

    One of the things that  I really liked about the book was the detail descriptions he gives of intel that led us to war with Iraq.  Much of the talking points from the left are false.  The intel that was used, in large part, came from sources that were in place before President Bush took office.  He also goes to great pains to show the stances of the rest of the world.  I know that I hear people say that other countries didn’t believe that Iraq had weapons.  Bullcocky.  Nearly every major intelligence agency across the world believed he had a program to develop weapons.  They just felt that sanctions were working and he was “contained”. 

    Cheney is rare bread in a politician as he says what he thinks and what he believes.  Most are too worried about which way the poll winds are blowing.  Not so much with Cheney. 

    I was anxiously waiting to get to the parts with Condi Rice and Colin Powell.  I was very disappointed.  I have no idea what the two of them are complaining about.  Cheney gave a dispassionate view of the events as he remembers them.  He doesn’t say anything bad about Condi Rice.  Now it is obvious that he had policy disagreements with her on several issues, but he doesn’t attack her at all.  It is also very obvious that Cheney’s view of Powell changed over time.  He and Powell worked together for many years and through different administrations.  Cheney makes it quite clear that he was happy with the choice of Powell as SoS by Bush.  They disagreed over Iraq policy over time and felt Powell leaving was a good thing.  I think both are being big babies about this book. 

    I also didn’t find anything in the book to make “heads explode” as predicted when it was first released.  Cheney is a man of few words but many convictions.  That comes across crystal clear in the pages of In My Time

    I would recommend the book highly as it has some very interesting information told from a point of view of man who watched the world change a great deal over the span of his life.  He and Bush didn’t always agree when he was Vice President, but he did the job that he was elected to do.  He stood by his president and he stood by the American people who were looking to them to keep us safe after 9/11.
