Book: Obama White House 'Has a Real Woman Problem'
FoxNews ^ | Sept. 17, 2011 | FoxNews

Posted on 09/17/2011 10:14:04 AM PDT by Clairity

The Obama White House is a "hostile" environment for women even though they occupy many of the senior positions in the West Wing, according to a new book.

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ron Suskind interviewed more than 200 people, including President Obama, for "Confidence Men: Wall Street, Washington, and The Education of A President," which will be released Sept. 20.

"This place would be in court for a hostile workplace," former White House communications director Anita Dunn is quoted as saying, according to the Washington Post, which obtained a copy. "Because it actually fits all of the classic legal requirements for a genuinely hostile workplace to women."

So sick and tired of this “hostile environment” for women crap. At the work place and in Universities, the rules are totally tilted toward women. There are now work places where you could hardly see one man working (ever seen the accounting department of a typical bank lately?), and yet there’s never an accusation of a hostile environment for men.

One, liberal men are often chauvinist pigs. They can't help it.

Second, liberal women accuse men of creating a hostile work environment if it isn't excessively pro-female.

Third, if a marxist like Anita Dunn is accusing the WH of being hostile, it's probably true and way over the top as she and other ultra-liberal women go out of their way to protect their ilk.

The Washington Post has a fuller review here:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/book-portrays-dysfunction-in-obama-white-house/2011/09/16/gIQAdxloYK_story.html

The notable thing is how Suskind got all sorts of very candid and antagonistic comments out of many of the Illegal’s accomplices and accurately reported them in the book, only to have the same accomplices deny their own remarks to the review’s author. Looks like the Illegal’s doing a bit of evidence suppression. This also makes it pretty clear why so few people from the Illegal’s earlier, mostly missing, years in college and law school have come forward to say anything about him—they’re scared s***less of what could happen if they did, just like the appartchiks in any other communist dictatorship.

Anyone watching how the Obama campaign went after Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin should not be surprised.

Barack Obama himself has no regard for women.

Obama follows the Muslim way - they treat their women as inferiors. At last, the real Obama is being revealed in the MSM.

And Fourth:

Homosexuals have an inability of relating healthily with the opposite sex. The immaturity (fixated in childhood so maturity can ever be reached without extreme psychological help) manifests itself not only in their silly sexual expressions which are nihilistic and destructive, but result in treating women with hostility and resentment because they are a constant reminder of their immature, non-natural desires.

(Brownshirts were homosexuals as are most Afghani men who sodomize boys and can never relate maturely with women).

First — do you think the women working in the Obama White House are anything but bitchy leftie shrews? No, they have to be fat and ugly or they’d be tossed out of the Leftie Club. So then, are THEY great to work with? Pretty much not, I’d guess. Third, do they have BIG FEELINGS and are they oh so happy to make sure everyone else knows about them?

hardihar. “I felt like a piece of meat.” We’re using that around here for every whine from now on.

The White House is just a microcosm of a leftie cesspool. I bet you can find it anywhere the lefties have taken over.

Rahm Emanuel set the tone. He's not so very different from his brother Ari Emanuel, who was the basis of Jeremy Piven's character on Entourage, though very much prettied up by the writers.

Exactly. I’m sure any time any man disagrees with them on any topic, he’s “misogynist”.

I agree: as far as I can tell there are no real women in the White House, now.

Well, this is easy to analyze. He’s got homosexual tendencies as does probably a good percentage of the other men there and she’s ravingly jealous of any other woman.

“There are now work places where you could hardly see one man working (ever seen the accounting department of a typical bank lately?), and yet there’s never an accusation of a hostile environment for men.”

You’re right; if you want to see the men just check out who leaves AFTER 5:00. The women are long gone by then.

The fact that nobody links those conditions to hesitation (or outright refusal) on men’s parts to start families is the epitome of denial; someday the current batch of spinsters will get it (long after their child-bearing years are gone). The reverse discrimination with women is even more pronounced than the ethnic nonsense.

Christina Romer, former head of the Council of Economic advisers, described one meeting for Suskind in which she was “boxed out” by Summers, the Washington Post reported. “I felt like a piece of meat,” she said.

Fascinating word choice. Why not "potted plant," or even "chopped liver" ( admittedly a kind of meat).

“Muslims don’t like women.”

Sure they do; they marry several of them. If you mean they don’t like taking lip from them or giving them jobs for which they aren’t qualified, you’re right. Magua puts it best in “Last of the Mohicans”: “The white man is a dog to his women; when they are tired he puts down his tomahawk to feed their laziness”. He understood English very well...

By the way, what is Obama’s Secret Service handle, Allah or Mohammed? Shaira law comes to the White House; next we will be hearing about rapes and honor killings (she dressed provocitively and deserved it). But NOW, ACLU, etc, will still support Obama because he supports them and groups like that only hate Christians but preach tolerance towards Muslims. To the women working in the WH, I would suggest to “put some ice on it.”

Had an experience today that immediately brought this thread to mind; I was in a local bank branch doing some business when the tellers (3 women; 1 American and 2 from the Indian sub-continent) directed me to a Customer Service Representative at one of the desks (where loan officers & such used to sit - formerly known as “the platform”). There were 4 “customer service representatives” (all women, 3 Hispanic/1 Brazilian); they were useless, and one called someone on the phone, saying that in the past they had handled these issues with a “William” something-or-other in the past. In response to what I could only imagine had been a response that the name wasn’t ringing a bell on the other end of the line, she then stressed that this had been in the past. She switched over to Spanish, which I could understand (her English was horrible, though she proudly pointed out that she’d been here over 30 years), then just basically waited me out (over 45 minutes) until I left in disgust. I’ve been to this branch before; even the manager (a foreign female) is impossible to understand.

I’ve always wondered what happened to the Americans (initially men, but apparently women as well) that used to do these jobs (with a measure of competence). Any job that can’t be sent overseas is just being given to these imports here anyway, and anyone who maintains that immigrants (legal or otherwise) don’t drive down pay/take American jobs is a bald-faced liar. What started in manufacturing spread to tech, then business, now just about everything; it is a national catastrophe that has unfolded (past tense), and our country has been destroyed (by both parties).

While I disagree with much of what the freaks that “occupied” Wall Street believe, some of their signs are dead-on that we have been sold out, and that our country and way of life have been destroyed (and they’re doing this with OBAMA in office).
