A claim in Ron Suskinds 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 Romers complaint, quoted in Suskinds book, that she felt like a piece of meat was denounced as inaccurate and unwarranted.
You cant 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 Americas ruler. He can say and do whatever he wants. Its our job to make him look good. If that requires the sacrifice of a little of ones self respect, well, as professionals, we need to recognize that its all part of the job at the White House these days.
bunch of ungrateful biatches.
“professionals” eh. Another good one John.
You had me, until I hit that line, then I looked at who wrote it. Good one again!
.....................she felt like a piece of meat............
She is pretty much a pice of meat.
