Obama’s War on Women: “I work in this administration, and I have to admit that I’m slightly annoyed by the lack of women around him in those key meetings”

Can you imagine the temper tantrums the left would be throwing if a Mitt Romney cabinet were so white male dominated? Yet despite even being in the Obama administration, people are so afraid to speak up and have to whisper their grumblings to the media. Why live in such fear? If they were criticizing Republicans they’d proudly name themselves. Why are they so afraid to take on their boss?

Obama’s recent actions haven’t just offended those outside his administration. There’s also some resentment brewing on the inside.

“I work in this administration, and I have to admit that I’m slightly annoyed by the lack of women around him in those key meetings,” said one administration official. “I mean, c’mon, out of all those people, there’s one woman in the room?”

The official said the problem extended beyond the circle of his closest advisers and into the Cabinet.

“You mean to tell me there’s not one woman who [was] qualified enough to be secretary of State, secretary of Defense or even White House chief of staff?” the official added.

In a New York Times column on Sunday titled “Democrats Behaving Badly,” writer Frank Bruni wrote that Obama and Democrats should be playing “error-free ball” since they have the upper hand going into the second term and because Republicans need a “pretty thorough image overhaul.”

Instead, Obama has been offending the base, which helped catapult him to a second term.

Of course Obama knows the lemmings will get in line when he needs them, so he can trample all over them. If these folks ahd any guts they’re speak up publicly. Maybe even some would resign. But they obviously lack the guts.

    Why should I be concerned? Women made this choice by voting overwhelmingly for Obama in spite of his divisive, small issue campaign. Women were more impressed by the issue of free birth control than the real issue of how the candidates would treat women. Don’t those snide, condescending, leftist pundits now wish that Obama had “binders full of women”. Oh well, women got what they wanted. I am moving on. On this issue, the women can deal with it.

    Identity politics is stupid and harmful. We should be careful.

    It’s one thing to point out the Left’s hypocrisy.

    It’s quite another to seemingly legitimize identity politics. If we concede the opposition’s premises in order to score fleeting political points, we will eventually regret it.

    There WAS a woman under consideration for SecDef: Michele Flourney, a current deputy secretary who actually has the trust and support of Pentagon brass.

    Well, the importance of skin color and in-between-the-leg parts *is* overreated. However, speaking as a woman, it seems like the prezzie does have some disdain for the female half of the population.

    Because of group think. Obama must be loved. Obama can do no wrong (or for sure he can’t be called on it!) Negative statements will get thee cast OUT as a traitor to the CAUSE.

    I wonder if maybe he actually believes women think with their “Lady Parts!”
