Oh, Condi

Look, I’ve never been a huge Condi fan.  No doubt she is an exceptionally intelligent person, accomplished academic, and probably pretty cool to have a beer with.  Nevertheless, under the watch of that expert Sovietologist, an ex-KGB man managed to freeze and roll-back democratic reforms in Russia and install himself as what looks like President for Life.  Suffice to say I take any praise or reverence of Condoleeza Rice with a grain of salt.

NRO has a write-up of Condi’s recent appearance of Face The Nation:

“The Republican party certainly has to stop turning off large segments of the population,” Rice said on Face the Nation to laughter. “It’s not a strategy to keep hoping that parts of the population don’t turn out. You’ve got to simply broaden.”

Immigration, Rice added, was the “big issue.”

“Frankly, we sent some pretty bad signals around immigration. George W. Bush, John McCain, Jon Kyl, and Ted Kennedy had an immigration bill in 2007 and it failed. And I felt at that moment that that was the real missed opportunity. We’ve got to get comprehensive immigration reform back on the agenda.”

Excuse me, Condi, but your old boss Bush is the one who fouled up immigration.  He, McCain, and Graham put up a colossal piece of crap bill so bad that even Bill Kristol was against it, then started an internecine war among Republicans, calling anybody who dared think the bill sucked a racist.

Nobody responds well to being called racist.  You guys burnt major bridges with those who might have been willing to compromise.  In the process, you gave the actual racists a voice.

    First, I reject her premise. The elitist cocoo she lives in believe CNN is middle-of-the-road and that wanfing the rule of law, (immigration, Obama), is racist.
    B)Why don’t people like Condi ever seem to say anything about the Dems alienating vast swathes of America? Like gun owners, religious, white people, people who employ others…..

    I agree with Veeshir if they had been willing to move faster on closing the border this thing could have gotten done but they weren’t so it didn’t of course that also allowed millions of illegals to cross back over the border when the collapse came, so there’s that. Oh, and on a personal note I think hard times are going to flow so if you have any big purchases to make do it in 2013 cause I think the SHTF event going to happen in 2014.

    More & more I think that Ringo has the right of it & the Darhel have controlled State since the early 1930s and have intentionally undermined all rational ‘diplomatic’ efforts since then and have contaminated everyone associated with that Department

    Makes as much sense as any theory that tries to explain the Foggy Bottom Idiots’ actions and comments

  4. If “broadening”, i.e., “Telling people what they want to hear” is the measure of success, then I may as well join the Demcong party now and be done with it.
