The new president of the Congressional Black Caucus, Rep. Marcia Fudge, is using her outspoken style to defend a fellow black woman in the Obama Administration.
Fudge, an Ohio Democrat from the Cleveland area, made some public remarks regarding UN Ambassador Susan Rice and the criticism she’s taken recently from Congressional Republicans. They offered backlash on some statements she made in the wake of the September 11 attacks in Benghazi that killed four American diplomats.
The Congresswoman took to the podium and SMOKED the Republicans and anyone else who dare doubt the stellar qualifications of Ms. Rice. She was responding to GOP claims, specifically by Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), that Rice was “not qualified” to be secretary of state, should she be nominated by President Obama.
“I’m really confused … Susan Rice’s comments didn’t send us into Iraq or Afghanistan,” Fudge said in her stinging comments.
TELL THE TRUTH, MARCIA!!!
As you can see, she let all her Cleveland hang-out. She was not playing at the podium! Lol!
Fudge wanted to be clear that Rice is very qualified for the job. Ambassador Rice was a Rhodes Scholar, receiving both master’s and doctoral degrees from the prestigious Oxford University in England. She also graduated from Stanford University AND was valedictorian of her class at National Cathedral School in the early 1980′s.
Sounds qualified to me!
