    Thumbs up Condoleezza Rice hands Stanford lefties who confront her, their collective asses

    If ever you needed further proof of the "person of color" America really needs in charge right now, I urge you to watch this fabulous YouTube footage of the magnificent Condoleezza Rice being ambushed by left-liberal students at Stanford University with a series of "difficult" questions about torture, Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo Bay and US foreign policy under George W Bush. (Hat tip: Andrew Hamilton.) Her coolness under fire is magnificent, but more impressive still is her refusal to duck the issues. "Sorry we have to leave", an official can be heard saying off camera, but Condi isn't going to take the easy way out: she wants to stand up for her principles and put the pantywaists in their place.






    "Let me tell you something: unless you were there in a position of responsibility after September 11 you cannot possibly imagine the dilemmas that we faced in trying to protect Americans," she says.
    "A lot of people are second guessing now but let me tell you the second guessing that would have hurt me more is if there had been 3,000 more Americans dying because we didn't do everything we could to protect them."
    "If you were in a position of authority and watched Americans jumping out of 80-story buildings because these murderous tyrants go after innocent people then you would have determined to do anything you could that was legal to prevent that happening."
    She is similarly robust when rebutting the suggestion that the US has no place dealing with regimes like Saudi Arabia: "You don't have the luxury in foreign policy of not dealing with a country because you don't like its human rights practices."
    And she is quite withering when the pallid lefty student tries having a go at her about supposed torture at Guantanamo. "Did you know that Guantanamo was called a 'model medium security prison' by representatives of the Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe?" The student reluctantly concedes he hasn't.
    "Maybe before you make allegations about Guantanamo, you should READ," says Condi, with exquisitely measured scorn.
    Enjoy too the way the hubbub in the room slowly silences as people begin to realise what an electrifying, impromptu confrontation is going on right next to them. And imagine the joy of the girl who filmed it - Reyna Garcia - scarcely believing her luck at being in the right place with a video camera at just the right time.

    I still believe she would be a great president, especially when you compare her to NoBama and Hillary.

    Naa, she was too close to President Bush.

    However, she is grossly misunderstood as one of the most effective and tenacious Secretaries of State in recent history.

    "No dear, you're wrong." LOL. "Do your homework." Mamma Rice just spanked a palid future lawyer. Priceless.

    She'd have my vote.

    You and me both. She was my original choice for candidacy for POTUS in 2008.

    Hopefully she will spank many more. California is full of them.

    The kid looked like he wanted to cry at the end because he got the worst bitch slap ever! Little D-Bag was trying to bring some heat but he was taking on a woman who knew her shit, and then she stepped on him like a little bug because he didnt know what the hell he was talking about.

    What's hilarious is that liberal education these days actually puts the idea into college kids' minds that they can actually go toe-to-toe with the likes of someone as intelligent as Rice.

    I thought it was classic when she told him to go and do his homework. Priceless.

    Gee, why don't we start an argument with the world's sharpest foreign policy expert! Good idea!

    Nowhere in his mind was there a little voice saying "hey, uh - we might lose?"

    I think therein lies the problem - most of the liberally educated folks I have met do not have that little inner voice that says "I can lose here if I fuck this up."

    It happens in arguments, and it happens on the street.

    The little blinking light/inner voice/whatever it is has been surgically removed from an entire generation.

    "If you were in a position of authority and watched Americans jumping out of 80-story buildings because these murderous tyrants go after innocent people then you would have determined to do anything you could that was legal to prevent that happening."

    I think Rush is right... People like that make critical decisions based on feelings and appearances, and they never let facts get in the way of either.

    Even though they don't ever have a hard definition of where interrogation ends and torture begins, the "enhanced interrogation techniques" euphemism sounds like torture, so invokes the same feelings in them.

    That's really the Bush Administration's fault for coming up with that euphemism, and not explaining why waterboarding is not torture.
