In the 2003 invasion of Iraq she stated that “Why We Know Iraq Is Lying” in the New York Times and on CNN’s Wolf Blitzer interview she said, “The problem here is that there will always be some uncertainty about how quickly he can acquire nuclear weapons. But we don’t want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud.”

On gun rights she stated that “Rice’s fondness for the Second Amendment began while watching her father sit on the porch with a gun, ready to defend his family against the Klan’s night riders.”
Rice’s view on same sex marriage are “marriage is between a man and a woman … But perhaps we will decide that there needs to be some way for people to express their desire to live together through civil union.”
In 2017 she was against removal of Confederate monuments and memorials and argued that “If you forget your history, you’re likely to repeat it. … When you start wiping out your history, sanitising your history to make you feel better, it’s a bad thing.”
I am shocked and saddened by the assassination of Prime Minister Abe. He was an extraordinary partner for President Bush through many challenges.
My thoughts and sympathies are with his family and the people of Japan at this difficult time.
