You would have though they learned their lesson with Oliver North.
The Democrats had the national stage to themselves with Richard Clarke. Their side of the story was the only one getting out. Then for some unknown reason they decided to “force” Dr. Rice to testify before the 9/11 commission.
I have a feeling that will prove to be a blunder of epic proportions.
Anyone who underestimates Dr. Rice’s ability does so at their own peril. There is a saying in talk radio, “People only remember the thing you say last.” Such will be the case with Dr. Rice. Giving her the opportunity to present her side of the case last will be incredibly powerful.
In their eagerness to bash Reagan, the Democrats embarrassed themselves with Oliver North. I just can’t help but thinking that we are watching history repeat itself.
In Oliver North you a man in that crisp Marine uniform creating a striking visual. When Dr. Rice takes the stage you will have the whole nation watching a black female taking the most prominent position in politics a black female has ever achieved. It will be a powerful visual image.
Imagine it… A bunch of old fart white men “attacking” a black woman and the black woman having all the answers.
The Whitehouse could not buy this press.
I’m sure the Democrats thought it was a good idea to put her up before the camera. Don’t be too surprised if next Thursday they realize they goofed.
