It’s laughable that a dozen Democratic female members of the House have resorted to saying that Republican opposition to the nomination of Susan Rice to be secretary of state “smacked of sexism and racism” (TNT, 11-19), especially since it was a Republican president, George W. Bush, who named the first black female, Condoleezza Rice, to become a secretary of state.
Are any of these among the 13 Democrats who opposed Condoleezza Rice when she was nominated? If so, they must have been racists and sexists also.
Why can’t liberals get it through their heads that it’s OK to oppose someone based upon their viewpoints or qualifications? No, when they don’t have a better argument, it comes down to sexism and racism. Gimme a break!
