Fox News Democrat Kirsten Powers is disgusted:
President Obama's silly, sexist defense of Susan RiceWell, maybe not. (Emphasis added.) But you know who would say something like that?
Don't pick on the little lady.
Wednesday, President Obama bizarrely cast the U.N. Ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, as some delicate flower the boys should stop picking on....
"If Sen. McCain and Sen. Graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me," Obama intoned....
Obviously caught up in his own silly yarn about meanie Senators and helpless U.N. Ambassadors, the President complained, "When they go after the U.N. ambassador apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me."
Imagine George Bush saying that people criticized John Bolton because he was an "easy target." He wouldn't.
Laura Bush: George W. is 'an easy target'That was from last summer.
Former first lady Laura Bush said she understands her husband "makes an easy target" for critics and chalked it up to the business of politics.
"We know what politics is like," Bush told ABC News in an interview.... "We know that, you know, people love to blame somebody else. That's just a fact of life in politics. ... I think George makes an easy target."
Hey, Kirsten -- is Laura's defense of her husband sexist? Would you say she thinks W. is "some delicate flower"?
