For John, BLUF: The Democrats and their fellow travelers are playing the race and gender cards and ignoring the openness/inclusiveness of Republicans to people of color and women. Nothing to see here; just move along.
US Senator John McCain (and Senator Lindsey Graham, but not Senator Kelly Ayotte) is being accused of racism with regard to the possible nomination of US UN Ambassador Susan Rice to Secretary of State. Here is Scott Whitlock writing for News Busters writing about a segment on Mr Chris Matthews' show, Hardball. The core of the article:
Former top Newsweek journalist and current MSNBC.com editor Richard Wolffe on Monday smeared Senator John McCain as a racist.Mt Wolffe can find no other reason for Senator McCain's opposition to Amb Rice than racism. The idea that Amb Rice and her Sunday Talk Show performance over Benghazi, might invoke Jeremiah 20:7 is not considered. The idea that Senator McCain (but not Senators Graham and Ayotte) might be favoring his good friend Senator John Kerry for the job is not considered. What is going in here?
My wife asks if there is selective vision here? Are the pundits unable to see women and people of color in the Republican Party? Do such people just become "White" once they register as Republicans?
