Rice Ba-lone-y

(CNN) — Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said that despite President Bush’s low approval ratings, people will soon “start to thank this president for what he’s done.”

Yeah, right, uh-huhhhhhhhh….

Original DVD cover.

“So we can sit here and talk about the long record, but what I would say to you is that this president has faced tougher circumstances than perhaps at any time since the end of World War II, and he has delivered policies that are going to stand the test of time,” Rice said in an interview that aired on CBS’ “Sunday Morning.”

The secretary of state brushed off reports that suggest the United States’ image is suffering abroad. She praised the administration’s ability to change the conversation in the Middle East.


“And I am quite certain that when the final chapters are written and it’s clear that Saddam Hussein’s Iraq is gone in favor of an Iraq that is favorable to the future of the Middle East; when the history is written of a U.S.-China relationship that is better than it’s ever been; an India relationship that is deeper and better than it’s ever been; a relationship with Brazil and other countries of the left of Latin America, better than it’s ever been …

“When one looks at what we’ve been able to do in terms of changing the conversation in the Middle East about democracy and values, this administration will be judged well, and I’ll wait for history’s judgment and not today’s headlines.”

Asked by CBS’ Rita Braver why some former diplomats say Americans are disliked around the world, Rice said that’s “just not true.”


Rice said she wasn’t bothered by criticism about her or the administration’s polices, saying if a person in her business is not being criticized, “you’re not doing something right.”


Asked about historians who say Bush is one of the worst presidents, Rice said those “aren’t very good historians.”

Sorry, Condi, but we’re sick of your games….

Yeah, I rehashed some old stuff, but cut me some slack. I’m sick today.

    Today, I watched a Rice interview clip from last week where she said she wasn’t concerned about her image because her job was not a “popularity contest.”

    Now, where have I heard those words before? Hmmm…

    Also, she said Bush would be remembered for (among other fantasies) leaving Israel and Pakistan on such good terms with each other!

    OOPS… there goes a billion kilowatt lie! Ker-plop! Indeed, the entire Bush administration has High Hopes: http://tinyurl.com/9joz3n

    nonnie, I just LOVE this poster-play on Indiscreet. You are so, so… FABULOUS!

  4. nightowl,
    condi is just reading from the script that karl rove or one of his minions wrote. it’s so ridiculous on its face. i don’t know how she isn’t embarrassed to say it. either she’s madly in love with chimpy, or she thinks she’s saving her own legacy, or both. either way, she’s making a fool of herself.

  5. After 8 years of delusional “leadership” we are expecting a dignified, truthful farewell tour?
    Same as it ever was with this crowd.

  6. It’s pride that nurtures self-deception, and at some point it becomes insincere, and necessary to tell yourself, and anyone who will listen, self-deluding lies. Bush, Rove, Rumsfeld, Rice, and Cheney are now telling lies about things that don’t exist in the present, but require memory or prophecy to substantiate. But now that Google is our collective memory, the only place left to lie about is the future.

    Surprise! They’ll all be vindicated by revisionist historians in a few decades, hundred, er, thousand well— fu¢king never.

  7. karen,
    that’s true. if they did something dignified now, we wouldn’t recognize them.

  8. michael,
    well said. the only part i wonder about is whether or not they ever had any pride in what they were doing. i saw lots of arrogance, but i don’t think i ever witnessed pride.

    Sweet Jesus, she is still drinking the koolaid…but then like KZ says…we wouldn’t know them if they didn’t.

  10. dusty,
    i think she has been drinking the koolaid since poppy’s administration. when you combine that with the fumes of chevron’s oil, then there is no hope for condi. even with chelation therapy, there is no hope. there’s just too much poison in her blood.

  11. Would Condi make a good Cleopatra, Queen of Denial?

  12. well, she’s certainly making an asp of herself every time she speaks.
