Condoleezza "Condi" Rice, served as US Secretary of State during the second Bush Administration and served as National Security Advisor during the first. She is a supporter of the Neocon agenda. She may or may not be the only African American woman who is a Republican. Fortunately America and the world are now free of the administration of George W. Bush together with her.
During her time as Secretary of State she:
- Failed to show leadership on major international issues
- Proved that black folks should not be Republicans...
- Ruined international relations with allies over the Iraq War
- Authorized use of extreme torture techniques
- Failed to address and end the War in Iraq
- Failing to clearly outline America's goals in Iraq
- Failed to bring real democracy to the Middle East
Others notable failures of Rice's include:
- Saying she believes that President Bush has been in exactly the right place on abortion policy
- Personally campaigning for President Bush's re-election in 2004, to get a promotion in his administration
- Declining to testify before the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States in March 2004 despite being the President's National Security Adviser
- Failed to produce her long-form birth certificate despite being black. Hmm, maybe that only applies if you're a Democrat.
- Ignored warnings about a possible future terrorist attack that later turned out to be 9/11. The warning was received in July of 2001 which was two mouths before the attacks. "CIA Director George J. Tenet looked back on the meeting with Rice as a tremendous lost opportunity to prevent or disrupt the Sept. 11 attacks. Rice could have gotten through to Bush on the threat, but she just didn't get it in time, Tenet thought. He felt that he had done his job and had been very direct about the threat, but that Rice had not moved quickly. He felt she was not organized." (From the Washington Post
