Two angry, old, white Senators, John McCain and Lindsay Graham, threatened to block the confirmation of an African American Woman, Dr. Susan Rice, if she is nominated by President Obama to become the next Secretary of State! Dr. Rice is presently, the United States Ambassador to the United Nations!

 

For John McCain, this is not about racism but it is about his loss in the 2008 Presidential Election and, Mitt Romney’s loss in the 2012 Election, for which Senator McCain was a major supporter of Mitt Romney.

                      

As for Senator Graham I can’t say one way or the other about his stance on race, but he is one pissed off White Man!

 

Both McCain and Graham in a joint news statement on November 14th 2012 said that Dr. Rice is at fault for the attack in Libya that killed four Americans. They also said she does not have the morale standing or the status to be Secretary of State because of the Libya matter.

 

However, it is highly hypocritical of Senator McCain in this regard. In 2005 when George W. Bush nominated Condoleezza Rice to be Secretary of State, John McCain threw his full support behind her, exclaiming that she had the honesty and integrity to serve as Secretary of State.

 

John McCain’s support remained steadfast for Condoleezza Rice despite the fact (not hyperbole) that Ms. Rice had lied to the American people about not having any knowledge about Osama Bin Laden’s threats to use Air Planes as lethal weapons inside of the United States. Ms. Rice also lied to the American people on several more occasions in 2002, when she advised President Bush to invade Iraq over “weapons of mass destruction.”

 

On Thursday night when pressed by the media over McCain’s doubled standard, he claimed “that people have a right to disagree with him, but he will stand in opposition of Dr. Susan Rice’s nomination.”

Listening to both Senators McCain and Graham, I can’t help but believe that these two Senators opposition really hasn’t anything to do with the qualified Dr. Susan Rice, but rather, McCain and Graham’s anger over Barack Obama being President.

 

And if this be true, then this is really sad for our country!
