Of course these are the same people who claimed attacking Susan Rice is “sexist.”
(CNSNews.com) – At a press conference of female House Democrats pushing back against Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) criticism of Ambassador Susan Rice’s false explanation of the Benghazi terror attack, Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wisc.) mocked McCain’s choice of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) as his running mate in 2008.
“It’s very difficult to recruit qualified women, and Sen. McCain should know that,” Moore said at a Capitol Hill press conference Friday, prompting laughter from the other women members on the stage.
Several female House Democrats held a press conference to defend Rice from criticism made by McCain and other Republicans over her false explanations of the terror attacks in Benghazi, Libya.
Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Rep. Marsha Fudge (D-Ohio) accused Rice’s GOP critics of having sour grapes after the party’s loss in the 2012 presidential election, mocking McCain for finishing near the bottom of his class at the Naval Academy. McCain, the son and grandson of famous admirals, has admitted not taking his academic studies very seriously while at the academy.
“I know when you lose you get angry,” Fudge said at a Capitol Hill press conference Friday. “I know when you lose sometimes you’re disappointed, but don’t take it out on somebody who didn’t have anything to do with your loss.
“How do you say that a person with Susan Rice’s background is not qualified? I wonder what your qualifications are for your job. Where did you finish in your class? I know one of them finished in the bottom of their class. Susan Rice was a Rhodes Scholar. How do you say a person like Susan Rice is not qualified? You may not like her, you may not like the administration, but don’t say she’s not qualified.” Fudge added.
