Condi Rice Blast's Huckaboom!

Rice Rejects Huckabee Criticism

In a brief foray into politics, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Friday denounced comments by a leading Republican presidential candidate that the Bush administration's foreign policy is arrogant and unilateral.

"The idea that somehow this is a go-it-alone policy is just simply ludicrous," she said at a State Department news conference. "One would only have to be not observing the facts, let me say that, to say that this is now a go-it-alone foreign policy."



Her remarks came in response to a question about criticism from former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who has surged in the polls to become a front-runner in the upcoming Iowa caucuses for the GOP presidential nomination. Huckabee recently said the administration's foreign policy was characterized by a "bunker mentality."

Rice did not mention Huckabee by name in her response and at first declined to respond, saying dismissively: "Look, I don't comment on other people's comments. I don't have time, all right. I really don't have time to worry about this."



But she then launched into a vigorous defense of the administration's multilateral diplomatic efforts on Afghanistan, North Korea and Iran, and pointed to improving ties with traditional allies in Europe, some of which were strained by the Iraq war.

"We have right now probably the strongest trans-Atlantic relations ... I would say in a very long time," Rice said, noting in particular Britain, France and Germany.

"We're working with allies in Europe, Russia and China on Iran. The (NATO) alliance is mobilized together in Afghanistan," she said. "We had 50-plus countries at Annapolis to launch the peace process between Israelis and Palestinians. We're working together with allies in Lebanon.

"I can go on and on and on and on," Rice concluded. "And so, I would just say to people, look at the facts.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Just what the hell is Huckabee talking about? Go it alone? Since when? We havent been alone since 9-12-01. We have some 63 Countries involved Militarily in the Global War On Terror, who know's how many others with intelligence, covert, overt oprations. We have 31 Colaition allies in Afghanistan and 32 or 33 coalition forces in Iraq! I would think most clear thinking people would call that a "COALITION"! I hardly call that "Going-It-Alone"!!

Not to mention through all this Lybia has dissarmed, North Korea is [] close to disarming, and have allowed US and UN inspectors back in to monitor the situation, and Chia Pet has settled down quite a bit.

Go It Alone? Prove it Huckabee!!!

Oh I forgot to add Afghanistan and Iraq as allies in the War On Terror.

Add them to the list with the other 63 or 64 Countries that are involved Militarily.

You know...there is an "edit" function, to update your post, Marie. Lol.

Huckabee's sticking his foot in his mouth, big time, when his criticism sounds a lot like the Democrats in Congress.

That's not the leader I want.

A.C.,

What did you get me into?

I'll be over there in a bit to find out!





Word,

I was just going on running around and didnt have time at the time to go back into my settings and get to edit so I thought I'd just leave it in the comment lol


After everything Huckabee has said this last week I think I'm crossing him off the list as well.

I know Fred is on a bus tour all over Iowa 50 or 100 stops, and the news just doesnt seem to focus in on him much.

They say he is running a lazy campaign but the truth is, I dont see any reporters tagging along with him and getting interviews, pictures, nothing.

That's why it looks like he isnt showing a strong presence.

I certainly hope Fred either picks up the pace or the reporters do!!
