Sarah is "bright" but Susan is not?

I am going to have to hurry with this post, because I have a date on the Boardwalk ,tonight.

Anyway, I was following the saga of this brother down in B-More via twitter and The Baltimore Spectator,-this social media stuff is no joke- and I realized that you can make a cause celebre out of damn near anything these days. Still, I wish the brotha luck with his situation. I really hope that he didn't break any laws. (Always watch out for those warrants)

I still can't get over the fact that a guy who picked Sarah Palin to be his running mate said that Susan Rice "isn't very bright". (Sorry Kirsten, Toure was right and you were wrong.)

First, let's take a look at her pedigree:

Father is an economics professor at Cornell, and he is a former governor of the Federal Reserve System.

Her mother is a guest scholar at the Brookings institute.

Now to Rice herself:

Class valedictorian and class president at a very prestigious prep school in D.C.

A Harry S. Truman scholar at Stanford University where she graduated Phi Beta Kappa.

A Rhodes Scholarship and Master's and Doctorate degrees in International Studies from the University of Oxford...there is more, but I think you get the picture.

Sarah Palin, on the other hand, well she works over at FOX NEWS these days.

Finally, former congressman, Allen West, is actually comparing himself to Honest Abe.

"GOP House Representative Allen West (R-FL) told NPR’s Michel Martin Friday that his recent defeat won’t deter him, because, after all, “Abraham Lincoln only served one term in Congress, too.”

Allen, I can't wait for the movie about your life.

Field, I don't see why you had to compare Palin with Rice. It's like comparing apples and oranges. One is White the other is Black. Hence, your comparison is a little off.

Besides, John McCain and other Republicans are just doing their job as 'statesmen' in Congress to assure the American people get the best knowledgeable Secretary of State possible.

You should be grateful for the GOP. Instead, you are showing how ungrateful you are. What is the matter with you?

Brother Field, I get the picture. Susan Rice has an impeccable academic resume. However, many with top academic credentials in academia lack honesty in character.

THAT'S what John McCain meant when he said she wasn't bright. He was talking about her character. Hell, there are students in college today with straight 4.0s but are knuckleheads when it comes to honesty and integrity.

And we all know that McCain has BOTH honesty and integrity. He is beyond reproach. No Democrat can match his character because they ALL lie, and you and your FN folks know it, esp Whitey, PilotX, PC and Dr Reine. I mean, my God, Dr Reine is a world-class liar with no character and no brains.

May I suggest you leave this Secretary of State alone? People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

The gop loves its stupid. Why do you think the biggest stars in wingnuttery are college dropouts?

Wow, it seems like Susan Rice really hit the Affirmative Action jackpot. Those are some seriously impressive academic credentials, but McCain is right; spend any amount of time listening to her and you get the impression of a mediocre intellect. I mean, look at her boss. President Obama was made Editor of the Harvard Law review because he was black, and the guy was destroyed by Romney in the only open debate. Back during the Obamacare debate in 2009, Paul Ryan made Obama look like a child. The guy really needs to stay behind the shield his media enablers protect him with, or he looks like an idiot.

Once you get these high power negroes out in the open, away from the Affirmative Action grading system, their lack of brainpower becomes obvious.

I'm sure there are smart black people out there, but Affirmative Action makes it more likely successful blacks will not be all that talented.

As far as Susan Rice's pedigree goes, she is obviously at least half white. How come every black person at the highest levels of achievement looks like they have substantial white ancestry? Does being part white make you smarter?

Eddie Robinson said...

McCain should just STFU. The president should be able to nominate who he wants for Secretary of State. Yes, Rice went out and told a bunch of ridiculous lies about the Benghazi terrorist attack, but she was just doing what Obama told her too, and he was out telling the same stories about a You Tube video.

And I don't see what the big deal is anyway about who gets to be Secretary of State. The last few people in the job have been embarassing failures. Rice couldn't be any worse than Hilary, so give her a shot.

And let us not forget that McCain graduated sixth from the bottom of his class out of about 900 students in undergrad.

There's no news in the Rice-Palin comparison. It's STILL clear that to many in america, the color Rice's skin COMPLETELY abrogates her significant academic and personal achievements and most of us overachieving Black women are quite familiar with it. The difference is that I'd be VERY comfortable telling McCain to kiss my Black ass, and the "assess" of all four of my college degrees. In fact, this situation is reminiscent of my ass kissing, racist assnon personal stalker over the past 5 years, ain't it racist boo-boo? Ahh if only this barely educated little white man wasn't so THREATENED by a Black woman like me, with more education and career opportunities that it has. Zoot alors!

Back to the subject at hand, I can't count the number of times I've wished I could take back my support of McCain in 2008, since the Prez shallacked Mitty.

Brainy as she may be, she may be lacking a bit in the ethics department. For example, she apparently wants to become Secretary of State, but has a pretty big conflict of interest with what would be one of her major early decisions - whether to approve the Keystone XL pipeline. She and hubby are invested heavily in Canadian energy companies, including TransCanada, the owner of Keystone. Oh sure, she could sell her interests next month and pretend she is impartial, but...Too bad that super-intelligent doesn't translate into super-moral, eh?

Dumb ass, racist, ignorant white trash always play that tired affirmative action meme with EVERY Black person that out smarts and out educates them.

Being part white didn't seem to help YOUR dumb ass.

As for "how come" some high achieving Blacks have white ancestry the reason is because after YOUR friend's ancestors raped and sodomized their slaves( poor white trash like YOU didn't own slaves, some of them WERE slaves), white people starting favoring the lighter skinned ones and STILL do.

In other words, it's STILL racism dumb ass!

Of course you can't count higher than "too hands wurf". Have you tried taking off your shoes to use your toes? That should get you to twenty... one..too..tree...foh... that is if you can stand the smell and look of those hooves.

Listen lemonhead, if you wish to sound cultured. You have got to really understand proper placement of buzz phrases. Cool that you used a french phrase (zoot aloors) you no doubt learned from a White acquaintance, but your placement highlighted your intellectual deficiency when you used it out of context.

You will never be a Doctor, what would you do when you don't have the critical thinking skills necessary to figure out a disease from complicated symptoms? Tell it to kiss your black ass and that it was racist?

Oh come on, brother Field. You are Black like I am. Being Black, we have learned how to read between the lines. Come on, READ BETWEEN THE LINES. McCain hasn't a prejudiced bone in his body. He is a just man who notices "character" first in an individual.

THAT is what he was talking about...But you have to be sophisticated enough to be able to read between the lines. Which a lot of you and your FN followers seem to lack. In fact, it seems rather commonplace among you FN folks....such a tragedy. I will pray for you.

Probably. You never really know. That's one of the evils of Affirmative Action - all black accomplishment is suspect.

So, you go with the odds and assume a successful black was just handed their credentials.

If blacks want to be judged on merit, then succeed on merit.

Just exactly how is still (unsuccessfully) trying to get into medical school as you approach the age of 50 "overachieving"?

The "color Rice's skin" does render her academic accomplishments questionable because of affirmative action, which means you can never be sure how much she did on her own and how much was given to her.

Sorry, but that's the price of favoritism. Maybe Susan Rice could have had a highly successful academic career on her own, but it is very doubtful. With you, there is no question at all.

The fact that someone of your deficient intellect, shady character and complete lack of class has four college degrees says all anyone needs to know about the worthless system of credentialism modern America has created for favored classses.

You will never be a doctor.

So desperate to uncover the " Race Card" You fail to mention the reasons...MOST Progressive blacks SHOULD have a problem with Rice...

Here let me help u....

Hundreds of security contractors died in Iraq and nobody heard about it. Now they're blaming Susan Rice and won't let go of four deaths in Benghazi? Helll, four people died just blocks from my house in the past month. Which is not to say it's right - it is to say shit happens and the GOPs real motivws are ulterior (and obvious).

If they're doing their duty as statesmen, they're sure barking up the wrong tree and picking on a smart lady in the process. So, okay, they're doing their jobs. And they're idiots - kind of like rodeo clowns, I guess.

"Now to Rice herself:"

Unrepentant liar. That makes her super qualified. That's the most important part about being a democrat. Being a piece of shit liar is a feature, not a bug.

About that Lincoln movie, Field. You said you weren't a "fan" of Lincoln, and your meaning became clear a la Lincoln/Douglas debates, in which Lincoln disavowed true equality between the races—whether for political expediency or as a reflection of his real values, either way a disappointment. But you could see the movie for the real hero, Thaddeus Stevens, played by Tommy Lee Jones, as an enlightened, thoroughgoing abolitionist. There were many, they just wouldn't sell movie tickets, and they sure as hell couldn't have got elected president.

Lots of folks say Jones steals the movie.

A big shout out to Frustrated Negro for nailing Brother Field.

Brother Field, why do you play these sleazy dishonest covert games with your own peeps? You have covered up EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING that smacks of the truth about Susan Rice. The FACT IS, Susan Rice has such a stained character that the only one whose character is worse is YOURS.

Susan is much too risky in character the Secretary of State for our country. She is very dishonest and hasn't an ounce of integrity.

You are one dishonest, disappointing and depressing Negro. I had hoped that you would wake up and see the light. But you don't have an ounce moral and ethical quality in you. Considering you are a lawyer, that makes you a LEGALIZED LIAR WITH NO CONSCIENCE.

Negro, you depress me.
