The World needs Condoleezza Rice in 2020

My Recent Posts

 

A recent comment on WB reminded me of Condi Rice. If the world survives the next 3 years, it is going to need A great person to lead it out of the Miasma that has overtaken society.

 

Perhaps the Republican Party will have had enough of The Donald by 2020, or perhaps a new party will need to be formed.

 

I am convinced that Trump truly wants to make America Great again, but he just doesn't know how. He doesn't have the experience, and he doesn't have the personality to make a great team do it for him.

 

 

But Condoleezza Rice does!

 

1. It is not because she is a woman, although that will bring the women back.

2. It is not because she is Black, although that will go a long way to ending the racial strife.

3. t is not because she is Conservative, although she is conservative in the right way. Stabilizing the economy, improving trade relations with the EU, and maintaining traditional values that made the USA great.

 

4. It is because she has the experience dealing with the Soviet Union and world leaders.

5. It is because she is experienced with the function of our government, having served 8 years in the Bush administration.

 

And last, but not least she is brilliant.

 

This is the leader that can bring the world to it's senses!

This is the SUPERWOMAN we have been looking for!

 

Condoleezza Rice is currently the Denning Professor in Global Business and the Economy at the Stanford Graduate School of Business; the Thomas and Barbara Stephenson Senior Fellow on Public Policy at the Hoover Institution; and a professor of Political Science at Stanford University.  She is also a founding partner of RiceHadleyGates, LLC.
From January 2005-2009, Rice served as the 66th Secretary of State of the United States, the second woman and first African American woman to hold the post. Rice also served as President George W. Bush’s Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs (National Security Advisor) from January 2001-2005, the first woman to hold the position.
Rice served as Stanford University’s Provost from 1993-1999, during which she was the institution's chief budget and academic officer. As Provost, she was responsible for a $1.5 billion annual budget and the academic program involving 1,400 faculty members and 14,000 students. In 1997, she also served on the Federal Advisory Committee on Gender -- Integrated Training in the Military.
From 1989 through March 1991, Rice served on President George H.W. Bush’s National Security Council staff.  She served as Director; Senior Director of Soviet and East European Affairs; and, Special Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs. In 1986, while an international affairs fellow of the Council on Foreign Relations, Rice also served as Special Assistant to the Director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

For months, after it became obvious that both the Dems and Repubs were
going to sabotage Trump, because he is not one of them.
I have been wondering who could get us out of this? The Democrats have become the party of JACKASSES, in every way.
The Republicans are so wrapped up in their own careers, they are letting the world go to hell.
Then in commenting on an article about race. Nasty reminded me of Condi Rice. The SAVIOR of mankind, if she can be convinved.

This is not a Black Candidate Jeffry. This is the most qualified person to lead the USA, who is a black woman.
She was part of the Bush administration.
 
Her credentials are incredible. Look at the Stanford link and see for yourself.
 
Did you like/Agree with every ship owner you sailed for. Or did you do your best to make the voyage a success out of Professional Pride?
Condi was a Professional who did her best for her country, and had to deal with many shady characters to do her job.
She repeatedly declined the Republican Nomination in 2016 because she hated what US Politics had become!

Expat writes "She repeatedly declined the Republican Nomination in 2016 because she hated what US Politics had become!"
So what makes you think she will change her mind now? She seems knowledgeable enough to know that you can't get much accomplished in politics if you intend to do something that shakes the boat. Trump is discovering that now. I could name a number of quality people who know as much and are about as interested in politics as a case of gangrene. A new political party would have to be the way to go for sure if someone, anyone, was truly serious. But how do you break through the establishment media blackout? Anyway interesting idea, it deserves conversation.

GOP donors pushing Condoleezza Rice to run independent campaign

By target="_top" rel="author">MATT DIXON

TALLAHASSEE — A group of Republican donors and strategists has been working to persuade former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to make an independent bid for president, according to a memo outlining the plan obtained by POLITICO Florida.
The group has grown increasingly dissatisfied with New York billionaire Donald Trump, the Republican front-runner who has roiled the party’s establishment as he has surged ahead in the polls.
Story Continued Below


 


“The reality of the matter is that we will have President Trump or President Clinton — if we don’t have President Rice,” read the memo, which was written by Joel Searby, a consultant with Florida-based GOP firm Data Targeting.
POLITICO reported last month about a memo that a group of donors was working on with Data Targeting to look at the viability of a third-party run amid Trump’s ascent. The newest memo, sent Thursday, is an update on the firm’s work.
“We have been in touch with Dr. Rice through her chief of staff,” read the plan, which is stamped “confidential.” “She is reluctant at this stage. We are asking for anyone wanting to assist to encourage her to run.”

Condi Rice is a Great choice, but she may be too polite to be heard in the dialog of today. People who can just provide accurate information, tend to be over run by the herd of emotional ideologues that run the Streets, the Media and Politics.
Speaking wisely is not enough. You need to scream to be heard, and shout to debate.

Interesting point. Back in the feudalistic days in Europe, societal decision-making was the privilege of just a small percentage of the population: 99% just had to accept whatever the 1% decided. 
 
Western democracy has opened up the process considerably, and I'm thankful for that.
 
But it seems strange that 6% of the world's population get to choose the most powerful politician. I would say that rings of feudalism.

I don't believe in the Deep State theory at all. But if there is one, it has rigged the elections to ensure that one of its own gets elected (most of the time).
 
The political party structure eliminates much of the competition for power and influence. If someone aspires for power and influence, one first needs to win the internal party election (you Americans call it the "primary"). That election requires funds, much of which comes from the supposed Deep State. If the campaign funds are accepted, then favors are owed, including the supposed Deep State. Then there is the general election, which again the Deep State has a hand in influencing.
 
I think Ms. Rice was one of Mr. Bush's bright cabinet stars in his administration. But I have only seen a media image of her. I have no idea how she conducts herself in a meeting.
 
If there is a Deep State, she already belongs to it. If she wants to win the election, she will need its help.
 
There is no messiah.

Dave Volek. I can provide you with information, but I can't make you think.
Condi has been an academician all her life and gained all her experience from advisory and appointed positions.
She has never had to run for office, so all your criticism is moot.
How do you think a Secretary of State would conduct herself in meetings?
Obviously you did not read the article, her qualifications, or the Stanford University link provided.

You've been too far away of what happens, especially in Europe, Russia, Africa. None of us have anything against the USA (America is a continent, not a country....see that arrogance when saying the US IS America ?), but against it's "Hey, here we are !!! Either you comply to our rules or you get wiped out !". That's what causes the image of the "ugly American".

Not everything in that world is (c) USA. And after all - US population is largely ex-European. So ? Ex-Europeans have an ideological fights with Europeans. Strange, eh ? But then - we have lots of historical burdens and knowledge - that's why we don't have an Orange Twit as president in any of our countries. Not that Clinton would have been better.

I have been involved in hundreds of meetings over the years. I have had to deal with authoritarians who want to dictate their version how things should be run--and clearly have no interest in hearing other people's perspectives). And I have worked with people who are very collaborative with other people's perspectives.
 
I have worked with more than a few people who appear quite amiable to other people's perspectives, but underneath they have an inflexible ideology guiding them. It takes me about six to ten meetings to figure these people don't want to hear what I have to say.
 
So where does Ms. Rice fit in this spectrum? I don't know. She could be anywhere. Until I actually work with her in some capacity, I will pass no judgement.
 
And this is one of the biggest flaws of our current political system. The skills to collaborate and consult cannot be demonstrated in an election campaign. We are making faulty voting choices.
 
BTW, I do not believe in the Deep State. But if there is such a thing, I  would say we should suspect all elected politicians that use a political party, all civil servants making over $100,000 a year, and all contractors of government services for more than $10,000,000 a project. They all have something to gain for keeping the status quo, whatever that is.

Yes Stone, those monsters at the DUHmerican Embassy from Davies on down are working feverishly to destroy Thai culture. Just last night I watched the PM speak about the DUHmericans forcing changes in Thai labor laws. Made me consider what areas are being influenced he's not talking about. 
 
I have watched with alarm as more and more companies from DUHmerica push their poisons here and the apparent success they're having thanks to the DUHmerican Chamber of Commerce.
