With the death of Osama Bin Laden (OBL) there is a renewed interest in looking at the Bush Administration and their policies after 9/11. Since the death of OBL Democrats are taking the opportunity to point out that the Bush Administration failed to capture/kill OBL. Dems are seizing what they believe is a chance to win political points with voters in showing the Democrats can be tough on terrorist. Republicans over the past decade have always stated that Democrats are weak on the war on terror and that with a Democrat as president the U.S. will not be as safe.
Of course that is a silly notion….
One interview that basically sums up the week of Bush bashing would be the Condi Rice interview on Lawrence O’Donnell’s show ‘The Last Word’. O’Donnell is a tough as he is passionate about his beliefs, but at the same time he is knowledgeable about the game of politics. I have seen O’Donnell eat some guest alive with his interview style but Condi definitely held her own and she was prepared.
Regardless of what you think of Rice, you cannot deny that she is a tough/intelligent woman. I may differ with Condi Rice on various issues as she is a Conservative (Moderate Republican), but I respect her knowledge of foreign affairs. In this interview Rice defended her decisions, to be fair decisions were made based on the intelligence at the time.

If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
