NOW Mum on Obama’s Calling Congresswoman ‘Cute’ Friday, June 17, 2011 By Fred Lucas

(CNSNews.com) – Conservative women’s groups saw a double standard regarding President Barack Obama using terms such as “cute” to describe Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, but said they are not offended.

However, National Organization of Women did not weigh in on the matter. NOW President Terry O’Neill did not have time to comment on the matter, NOW spokeswoman Latoya Veal said.

Veal attempted to schedule time for O’Neill to talk about the matter with CNSNews.com for three days, but said O’Neill and other NOW officials are busy preparing for the group’s 2011 National Conference from June 24-26 in Tampa.

However, Wendy Wright, president of Concerned Women for America, told CNSNews.com the descriptions from Obama are not characteristic for a Democratic president.

“Of all people who ought to be offended at President Obama's statement it should be an ardent feminist like Wasserman-Schultz,” Wendy Wright, president of Concerned Women for America, told CNSNews.com. “Isn’t objectifying women by their looks a mortal sin among feminists?”

NOW members probably believe that Obama thinks they are cute too.

Howdy Doodys taste is in the toilet (look who he married) along with his political career. He must feel like he’s on safari with all those liberal hippos, RINOS, hyenas and elephants around.

What else could they say besides “he obviously doesn’t know what he’s talking about.”

This is an egregious violation of the left's firm committment to Equality Of Outcome.

Now O'Bozo will have to tell them all they are "cute".

“Isn’t objectifying women by their looks a mortal sin among feminists?”
/// maybe that’s why N.O.W. doesn’t object to burkhas?
because it prevents men from being able to do that?

A bit too much of that “Wavy Hair Gravy...now with REAL MAYONAISE”.

The Hare-lip is about as “cute” as an agitated toad.

But what would Obama, who apparently never had a girlfriend until he met the politically-connected Mooch-elle at age 30, know about women anyway?

NOW like Code Pink, has now been proven to be nothing more than DNC PACS.
