Why Democrats mask Susan Rice incompetence with white racism charge
By Kevin Fobbs

Liberals and democrats have now chosen to open their favorite boogieman door and take out the always convenient racism race card. This time, democrat leaders including the incoming Congressional Black Caucus leader, Cleveland democrat Rep. Marcia Fudge (D.-Ohio), the incoming chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus went on the attack Friday, November 16th charging racism! This time the targets were Senator John McCain (R-AZ), Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Senator Kelly Ayotte.

Out came the old tired and quite familiar race card. "How dare these white senators and especially these white men attack this black woman!" All one can say to these congressional women who sang this same familiar tune. Grow up! This is not 1962, it is 2012. Americans lives were lost and facts do matter!

Nearly 2 months ago, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice appeared on 5 national news Sunday talk shows selling a lie which covered up the truth of the murders of four Americans at the Benghazi consulate in Libya. The administration lies have taken on their own life, and on Thursday, November 15th the republican senators demanded answers.

Yes, it does matter that Ambassador Rice covered up the lie about a You Tube video being the reason for the attack on the Benghazi Consulate. The administration it knew to be a lie. It was a fiction that President Obama knew was a lie, and avoided telling the truth about. It was a lie that Obama's former CIA Director David Petraeus knew as a lie 24 hours after the deadly 9/11 attack. Yet, Susan Rice never offered even a scintilla of evidence about an Al Qaeda attack being the reason for the assassination of Americans.

So why go back to the same card game with Americans. Why the double racial standard?

Why do congresswomen like Cleveland, Ohio congresswoman Marcia Fudge, incoming chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus feel it is necessary to state, " It's a shame that whenever anything goes wrong they pick on women and minorities!"

The answer is clear.

The politics of racism practiced by liberals, by the president, and by white guilt ridden apologists is that they need America to continue to be divided. They are now the true racists in an America that has moved on. This nation now has a president who is black. Americans believe that job security, an approaching fiscal cliff and crushing debt is more important than finding imagined racist boogiemen hiding in America's dark corners.

Susan Rice does not need to be defended on the basis of her race or on her gender. Susan Rice as any other administration official that plays footloose with the facts concerning the deaths of Americans must be held accountable. There is no two-tier level of responsibility. American does not have nor need a racial Affirmative Action type of imagined protection for minorities or for women.

If Congresswoman Fudge is so concerned about protecting women who are being subjected to discrimination, not gaze into Obama's mirror? After all, it is not senators McCain, Graham, or Ayotte, who are discriminating against women. It is the hope and change President Obama, openly discriminates against women and embraces the "do as I say and not as I do" rule. Women are paid up to 17 percent than their male counterparts in the White House!

So liberals and Congressional Black Caucus women, stop this nonsense about racism when the only problem of racism that seems to exist in this nation is a continued embrace of the race card. How about working toward the day when a Congressional Black Caucus is not necessary. What about demanding that public officials that lie to America and engage in indefensible incompetent behavior answer to it.

The truth, not fiction, is essential and must be investigated and the results placed before the American public. It's simple, race and gender is no defense against the truth. It is about the truth, and nothing but the truth.

This is the 12st century. In the final analysis, America needs to know that when its sends its sons and daughters to fight a war or to place their lives in danger for this nation, their president will not cover up, will not deceive and will not ignore their sacrifice.

So, Susan Rice come forward and be a woman, and not hide from your conduct or let a president beat his chest like a prehistoric cave man protecting his women from the big bad imaginary republican dinosaurs. After all, hopefully Obama did not nominate you as a black woman for a job. Hopefully he nominated you as a woman capable of doing your job and defending your conduct on your own.

Reject the race card being played in your name, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, so that America can move onto matters which impact all Americans, colorblind and one nation under God.
