President Obama: Kamala Harris 'best looking attorney general in the country'
NY Daily News ^ | April 4, 2013 | Daniel Beekman

President Obama felt the heat Thursday after calling a powerful female official smoking hot.

And as luck would have it, he made the unfortunate comment on the same day his wife — remember her, tall lady with the midlife bangs? — mistakenly referred to herself as a single mother.

But back to the Prez and his very male salivary glands:

“She also happens to be by far the best looking attorney general in the country,” Obama said of California’s Kamala Harris during a fund-raiser. The unexpected comment ruffled the feathers of some observers and caused a commotion on social media such as Twitter.

“It’s true, come on,” the President added as fund-raiser attendees in Atherton, Calif., guffawed.

Obama set up the remark with a heap of more conventional praise for Harris, 48, who campaigned for him last year.

“She is brilliant and she is dedicated and she is tough,” Obama said.

What came next was a compliment heard round the world — an uncharacteristic slip by the smooth-talking Obama. Some Twitter users blasted the quip as “awkward” and even “sexist.”

“Obama’s comment about Kamala Harris is disgraceful and really terrible for workplace equality,” tweeted New York magazine writer Jonathan Chait.

Not surprisingly, the Republican National Committee quickly pounced on Obama, posting a snarky Twitter message.

“Not awkward and perfectly fine for him to say, right?” it said.

While the remark left plenty of observers hot and bothered, it didn’t offend everyone: “How did it become so difficult to call a woman good looking in public,” tweeted Politico media reporter Dylan Byers.

But Thursday turned out to be double trouble for the First Family, with Michelle Obama calling herself a “busy single mother” in an interview. The top mom immediately caught herself, saying, “You know, when you’ve got the husband who’s president, it can feel a little single, but he’s there,” she said, CBS reported.

From remarks I've heard about Miss Kamala over the years, she is a disaster in her position, letting many criminals go free. So she should be right up Zero's alley in his never-ending quest to find the most incompetent and/or outright lunatic people to fill government positions.

Kamala Harris?

I am shocked he did not call out Eric Holder.

It's funny. She's just about the only black female Attorney General in the country. And here's the black president, calling her the best-looking.

Maybe it's because I'm white, although I find women attractive in all shades, but I think Pam Bondi is more attractive.

And this woman isn't half-bad looking either, I mean if the President thinks we should be passing judgement on how women look and all, who am I to disagree...

Imagine the response to a GOP president making the same remark.

Wait, I found the article that explains why Obama thinks she is the best-looking AG...

'Female Obama' Must First Tackle California

What better choice for a narcissist like Obama, but a female who is called the "female Obama". Although sometimes I think Obama is the female Obama.

He likes boys and needs to make remarks like that from time to time to keep up the front.

"I think Obama is the female Obama."

Evidently The First Beard agrees with you, since she thinks she's a "single mother."

Maybe this crack reporter should ask Brent Musberger. Oh, that's right. Musberger is a white guy. Different rules.

Bat Shiite KuhRayZee Politics and I can’t stand that she refused to properly prosecute the cop killer.

But yea, drunk, I’d hit it....

Absolutely. She is said to have a dismal record of winning cases against criminals, and libtard that she is, she’s against capital punishment, among other things.

I don't find her particularly hot, but there isn't much competition.

She’s just as much a moron. The only positive thing she did was beat my former congressclown in the rat primary.

If Bush would have said something like that it would have been the lead story on all the network news shows for the next two weeks.
