Comments on: A foreign policy tell-all from Rice? http://blogs.reuters.com/global/2008/09/26/a-foreign-policy-tell-all-from-rice/ Beyond the World news headlines Wed, 16 Nov 2016 20:09:42 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Nick http://blogs.reuters.com/global/2008/09/26/a-foreign-policy-tell-all-from-rice/comment-page-1/#comment-2416 Mon, 29 Sep 2008 12:09:46 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/global/2008/09/26/a-foreign-policy-tell-all-from-rice/#comment-2416 Becki, I am sure that you comment actually meant to read that Condolezza is a buck passing lap dog with no morals and no problem screwing over whoever she is told to.

For someone of principle who has earned it the hard way and had the balls to leave to resign when he disagreed with policy see Colin Powell. Racism in his line of work i.e. the army also meant severe physical as well as meantal agression for the recipient, not just some sad verbal whiplash from the handbag wielding fraternity of society.

This newly discovered game of Identity Politics is vital to contemporary efforts of the elites, who recognize an essential weakness of voters; many voters have been brought up to believe ethnicity, gender or sexuality is a master status, even over Class. It is very simple then to fund the Campaign of some perfectly unoriginal politician who happens to possess a racial difference or gender difference that was shunned from tradition 50 years ago, but now is good investment! Unfortunately, this applies only to bourgeois women and the new section of bourgeois Blacks, the working-class Blacks and Women, of course, are in the same sort of situation as working-class white males, and their interests are not represented by any Black man or Woman among the elites. In time this will be obvious, it is a stage half stuck in the formally racist and sexist past and half emergent from it, an opportunity to prop the two-party, half-decade appointee bean count.

She’s done remarkably well in her life and not on the coat-tails of a man (e.g. Hillary). I would like to see her out from under George Bush and on a ticket with Colin Powell or any number of admired, respected leaders. I think Rice and Powell would make a great team. Okay … back to reality! Despite the negative issues with the Bush administration, there are many qualities I admire about Condie Rice.
