Lawrence O’Donnell vs Condi Rice….

With the death of Osama Bin Laden (OBL) there is a renewed interest in looking at the Bush Administration and their policies after 9/11.  Since the death of OBL Democrats are taking the opportunity to point out that the Bush Administration failed to capture/kill OBL.  Dems are seizing what they believe is a chance to win political points with voters in showing the Democrats can be tough on terrorist.  Republicans over the past decade have always stated that Democrats are weak on the war on terror and that with a Democrat as president the U.S. will not be as safe.

Of course that is a silly notion….

One interview that basically sums up the week of Bush bashing would be the Condi Rice interview on Lawrence O’Donnell’s show ‘The Last Word’.  O’Donnell is a tough as he is passionate about his beliefs, but at the same time he is knowledgeable about the game of politics.  I have seen O’Donnell eat some guest alive with his interview style but Condi definitely held her own and she was prepared.

Regardless of what you think of Rice, you cannot deny that she is a tough/intelligent woman.  I may differ with Condi Rice on various issues as she is a Conservative (Moderate Republican), but I respect her knowledge of foreign affairs.  In this interview Rice defended her decisions, to be fair decisions were made based on the intelligence at the time.

“What you know today can affect what you do tomorrow, but what you know today cannot affect what you did yesterday” – Condoleeza Rice

As always….

If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!

  1. Dr. Rice one again showed why the Bush Adminstration acted as It did during their time in office. Ultimately, the intelligence proved to be false but at the time it was assumed to be factual by all the major players.

    1. I agree I can’t be mad at Rice, BUT the stories about Rumsfeld and Cheney pushing kats at the Pentagon to find evidence to support attack is a problem for the Bush Administration.

  2. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said that despite President Bushs low approval ratings people will soon start to thank this president for what hes done..So we can sit here and talk about the long record but what I would say to you is that this president has faced tougher circumstances than perhaps at any time since the end of World War II and he has delivered policies that are going to stand the test of time Rice said in an interview that aired on CBS Sunday Morning.The secretary of state brushed off reports that suggest the United States image is suffering abroad. Speaking to CBS she said generations pretty soon are going to start to thank this president for what hes done.
