Administration Rebuffs Contentions that it Mistreated Women
A Semi-News/Semi-Satire from AzConservative ^ | 24 Sep 2011 | John Semmens

Posted on 09/26/2011 12:12:45 PM PDT by John Semmens

A claim in Ron Suskind’s book, Confidence Men: Wall Street, Washington and the Education of a President, that the Obama Administration created a hostile workplace for his female advisors was met with denials from current White House Budget Director Jack Lew.

“The contention that the President or any of his male appointees would denigrate these women in any way is mistaken. To the contrary, we all had a broad respect for these ladies,” Lew said as he struggled to suppress a titter over his use of the word “broad.”

Former head of the Council of Economic Advisers Christina Romer’s complaint, quoted in Suskind’s book, that she “felt like a piece of meat” was denounced as “inaccurate” and “unwarranted.”

“You can’t take what a disgruntled former employee says as the gospel truth,” Lew warned. “Comments get taken out of context. Disagreements are blown up into accusations of disrespect. The bottom line is that Barack Obama is America’s ruler. He can say and do whatever he wants. It’s our job to make him look good. If that requires the sacrifice of a little of one’s self respect, well, as professionals, we need to recognize that it’s all part of the job at the White House these days.”
