House Dems Play Sexist Card In Defense Of Susan Rice

Earlier in the week Barack Obama lashed out at Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham over their comments concerning United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice’s comments about Libya. Noticeably excluded from his list of Republicans was female Senator Kelly Ayotte. Each of the Senators have been vocal about blocking a nomination of Rice as Secretary of State.

“If Senator McCain and Senator Graham want to go after somebody, they should go after me,” Obama said. “But to go after the UN Ambassador who had nothing to do with Benghazi?”

But it didn’t stop with Obama. Many liberal Democrat women in the House came out in defense of Rice and attacking the Republican men for their comments against her.

Congressional Black Caucus Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-OH) said in a press conference on Friday, “There is a clear, a clear in my opinion, sexism and racism that goes with these comments that are being made by – unfortunately – Senator McCain and others. And I strongly stand by that statement.”

Hmmm, I wonder if there is anything “racist” about a “Congressional Black Caucus.” Oh wait, can’t begin with facts with liberal racists as they will dismiss you as a racist and if they are female, they will toss in “sexist” for good measure.

Additionally, Representative Gwen Moore (D-WI) said that John McCain and other “men” should not “attack” or “batter this woman (Rice).”

“What unmitigated gall for these men to attack the permanent representative to the United Nations Susan E. Rice,” Moore said.

“We all understand that all of us have been disappointed in one way or another about the results of the election – but to batter this woman because they don’t feel they have had the ability to batter President Obama is something that we, the women, are not going to stand by and watch,” Moore said.

“There was a time when I regarded Mr. McCain in particular as a gentleman. I am sad that this is not one of those moments,” she said.

Oh come on. Should I break out the world’s tiniest violin and begin to play? Look Susan Rice is working among men. When she does something that is questionable or wrong, men and women have a right to call her on it. I notice again though that neither of these liberal racist women are dealing with Senator Ayotte. Does Ms. Moore consider her “unladylike” now?

Well here’s to Democrat Kristen Powers who at least chided Barack Obama over treating Rice different in this incident because she is a woman. She wrote on Thursday:

It’s absurd and chauvinistic for Obama to talk about the woman he thinks should be Secretary of State of the United States as if she needs the big strong man to come to her defense because a couple of Senators are criticizing her.

Believe it or not, Rice isn’t the first potential Cabinet nominee to be opposed by members of Congress up on the Hill. Obama also left out the inconvenient detail that there is another senator who has Rice in the crosshairs: Sen. Kelly Ayotte. But perhaps a female Senator holding Rice accountable didn’t sound menacing enough in the era of the “War on Women.”

Ahhhh yes, when it comes to Senator Kelly Ayotte and the criticism leveled at Ambassador Rice all we hear is………….crickets.
