Rice: I Offered to Resign in 2004

Posted on Oct 2, 2006

The secretary of state told Fox News that she “offered to resign as President Bush’s national security advisor as part of a broader housecleaning following the president’s reelection in 2004.”

Fox News:

JIDDAH, Saudi Arabia—Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says she offered to resign as President Bush’s National Security Adviser as part of a broader house-cleaning following the president’s re-election in 2004.

“I did tell the president at one point that I thought maybe all of us should go, because we had fought two wars and we ... had the largest terrorist attack in American history,” Rice disclosed Sunday night while en route to the Mideast.

“And when he asked me to be secretary of state, I said, ‘I think maybe—maybe you need new people.’ ” She did not say what the president’s immediate response was.

Poor KindaSleeza…she must have been sooooooo weary from moving Heaven and Earth.

This is just another lie wrapped around a mote of truth.  The advisors to reelected presidents have been tendering pro forma resignations for eons.

One way of determining whether a person is a patholigical liar whether they believe any words that dribble out of their mouths.  KindaSleeza qualifies.  I suppose another way is to ask whether the person ever advised President Bush.

Either definition works for me.  This is a depraved bunch of pathological liars.

W’s response was: “Dress up like a little boy and blow me, Condi”.
