MSNBC’s Richard Wolffe accused Senator McCain and other Republicans last night of racial animus in their attacks on Susan Rice:
Frankly, it’s outrageous that there is this witch hunt going on on the right about these people of color, let’s face it, around this president. Eric Holder, Valerie Jarrett, now Susan Rice. Before it was Van Jones.
What about Senator McCain’s support for Condoleezza Rice? Shouldn’t that aid his defense against charges of racism? Actually, according to Richard Wolffe, that is another example of Senator McCain’s racism:
Look at what John McCain said about Condi Rice’s nomination. We’re running this story on the front page of the MSNBC website right now. Back then, four years, eight years ago, John McCain said the people, the Democrats who were questioning Condi Rice’s credentials, they were just engaged with bitterness, they needed to move on. Why has he changed his tune? What is it about Susan Rice?
