Obama's White House is a 'hostile environment for females that treats women like meat'

Top female advisers felt left out by a boy's club in the White House where rampant infighting sabotaged the administration's economic decisions, according to a controversial new book.

Sidelined and ignored in the West Wing, some women aides reportedly complained to President Obama about their treatment in 2009. In an excerpt obtained by the Washington Post, a female senior aide is quoted as calling the White House a hostile environment for women.

Confidence Men: Wall Steet, Washington and the Education of a President, by journalist Ron Suskind, is due out in the shops next Tuesday.

Former Communications Director Anita Dunn calls the work environment 'hostile' in the book, which she now denies having said According to the Post, former White House Communications Director Anita Dunn says in the book: 'This place would be in court for a hostile workplace because it actually fit all of the classic legal requirements for a genuinely hostile workplace to women.'

Are these people living in the stone age?

The woman thing is just not that big a deal anymore.

I see the media preparing the ground for a Hillary challenge.

A number of articles have come out in the past week either praising Hillary or attacking Obama in a way that promotes Hillary (i.e. hostility to women accusations trying to peel off some of the female vote).

Anybody think this tactic has a chance of succeeding? Does Hillary's decision to play on Obama's team scuttle her chances? Is there anybody else in the wings?

Inquiring minds want to know.

I think you are right, but for the life of me i don’t see how Hillary could ever be seriously considered. She has silently agreed with every decision he made.
Hillary is nothing buy an elderly white female Obama.

She stunk up the joint because Obama was discriminating against her?

Obama appointed both a camel and a goat to the Supreme Court to substantiate your claim.

I would love to see someone challenge nobama. It would be a fight to see who could go the furthest to the left. By the time they are done piling shi er mud on each other Marx will be cheering from his grave.

I know it, and you know it. She's so incompetent, she stayed married to Bill despite everything, to try to get into office on his dime.

I'm just trying to figure out what they'll say to try to fool liberals into supporting her.

Women are as welcome in the White House as a San Francisco bath house.

And for the same reasons.

I assume “like meat” doesn’t refer to Mrs. Steaming’s new dietary advice?

Obama and Hillary are both puppets of the same cabal. It was the cabal that put Obama ahead of Hillary and it is the cabal that will decide who is the next nominee.As to the cabal you can start with Soros and the Rockefellers and a few UN big wigs and I believe it will take you (up)? to the level of the Rothchilds. The USA has been the attraction for such people and purposes since the time of President Wilson. Beck for one has nailed this down.

What I do recall is that when I was getting ready to leave Ayers told me I couldn’t go until I slept with his roommate and his brother. At this point Bill and I had slept together just once. I was sexually inexperienced, having had only one serious boyfriend with whom I had recently broken up.

At first I thought Ayers was joking. I got up; and went to the door. He moved quickly to block me at the doorway. He locked the door and put the chain on it. I went to the couch and sat down and told him that I had no intention of having sex with his roommate and his brother or him. He said that I had no choice but to do as he said if I wanted to get out of there. He claimed that I wouldn’t sleep with his married roommate because he was black -- that I was a bigot. I had gone to school with black kids and had them as friends all my life. I couldn’t believe he was saying that to me

I guess they all read Bill Ayers book "How to Pick Up Girls."

FOX NEWS showed a clip of Michelle Obama hovering over a family while they were eating at a restaurant. Now if I had been one of the diners I would have told her she was creeping me out and to please leave. Course, if it was Laura Bush, I would have invited her to sit down with us and talk as long as she wanted about anything she wanted.

I have thought that was the case with Hillary ever since the 2008 Democrat primaries when she suddenly lost delegates (was it Florida and Michigan?) and her campaign started to lose steam. I remember Dubya Bush had a private meeting with her at some point and wondered if he was relaying the message (from what you call the cabal) that it "wasn't her turn" this time around.
