At least that’s what I’m getting from Richard Wolffe’s little rant
There is the question about John Kerry, but I think now that John McCain has sunk his teeth in, he’s made it about presidential authority, and, frankly, it’s outrageous that there is this witch hunt going on the right about these people of color, let’s face it, around this president. Eric Holder, Valerie Jarrett, now Susan Rice. Before it was Van Jones. This is not about who is hawkish in the same way John McCain is about foreign policy because if you look at Iran and Libya, Susan Rice checks those boxes. This is a personal vendetta.
So what you are saying Wolffe, let me get this straight, is that it doesn’t matter if someone is responsible for a severely imbecilic government program that put over a thousand guns into the hands of the Mexican drug cartels, guns which resulted in the death of two of our own border patrol agents and 300 injuries and deaths in Juarez, if you are not white, you get an automatic ‘get out of jail free’ card and an exemption from criticism?
If you aren’t white, you can make statements like “Given the daunting challenges that we face, it’s important that president elect Obama is prepared to really take power and begin to rule day one.” and be one of Obama’s ‘closest advisers’ with ties to radical, anti-American figures, and the American public doesn’t have the right to vet you?
You can be the ‘green czar’ and a self-avowed communist who held an anti-American rally the day after September 11th, who has expressed a desire to replace American’s Capitalist economy with Marxism, and it’s racist for us to investigate your background, because you aren’t white.
If you spread falsehoods about the cause of the deaths of 4 American citizens, one of them an Ambassador, and refuse to admit that the talking points you used in interviews were, in fact, not correct and not based on the best information our intelligence community had, but you said your scripted lines regardless, it’s somehow wrong for us to criticize you and protest the idea that you might be given more power, when you’ve already proved you couldn’t handle what you had.
We’re crazy and racist for wanted to vet the people making decisions in this country. Apparently we are on a witch hunt.
Well you know what, we’ll continue to vet them and question their background and question their intentions for this country, because that’s the way this country works.
And quite honestly, your whole hysterical “You’re a RACIST!” rants are getting less and less effective. Every time you use that argument, we know that we’ve won the argument, because you have nothing left to hit us with.
