Obviously this move on her part is self-loathing racism. She should be ashamed of herself.
President Barack Obama just released a statement praising Susan Rice’s service and saying he accepts “her decision to remove her name from consideration for Secretary of State.” Obama also lamented “the unfair and misleading attacks on Susan Rice in recent weeks.”
I know, those misleading attacks on Rice’s finances by Democrats have been truly despicable. But you know who this really hurts? No, not the dummy who wanted to nominate her, but nice guess.
Upside: Now Obama can at least appoint a more qualified guy — a notorious tax cheat:
The Republicans are probably OK with a wealthy, old white guy. Lord knows they’d never have voted to approve a black woman named Rice as Secretary of State.
