Maybe we should just get rid of all men in all professions.

Women good. Men bad.

I suppose that way they could just boink each other instead of paying for prostitutes.

Sure. Do just that.

And we’ll have the ‘Cabana Boy Scandal’ at Taxpayer Expense to deal with later, LOL!

Stupid, competence is the over-riding necessity. But I guess if we have an affirmative action president, we might as well promote secret service agents on the basis of race and gender.
Ernst Rohm would be proud.

How many secret service agents that have been shot and killed have been women? If it’s less than 50% of them, perhaps we need to work to get them more represented here.

Unless you really are only for certain “gender equity” statistics.

Greater gender diversity

The probability of the scandal happening “would have been reduced significantly” if there were more women on the Cartagena detail, said Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-N.Y.).

Yes, they wouldn’t have had to hire out.

What a bunch of crap! How about we only hire those that have the best attributes and abilities - how quaint, heh?

Seems that our PC overlords are controlling all these days.

Am getting really tired of the feminist overtones with government hiring.

Wasn't a woman in charge of this very unit?

(Paula) Reid, a 46-year-old black woman, tall and lean, with a reputation for being “exacting” and “steely.” The 21-year veteran of the Secret Service was recently promoted to head of the agency’s Miami bureau, where she oversees the 150 agents that work throughout South America.

maybe Political correctness is part of the problem?

Funny how the elites cram affirmative action down our throats but have no such thing for themselves when it's their ass on the line. Perhaps we should join in the chorus for more women agents on their front lines then see if and how much they squirm.

Or was it because they “need more women and minorities” in the leadership?

Part of the problem was the affirmative action girl put in charge of the Miami office - which is the office the SS team was out of.

What we really need to do is to only allow married women to vote. Single women tend to be wealth redistributionists. They want Gov’t to be their husband (sugar daddy) and the Democrats are happy to cater to them and get them affirmative action of all sorts. Welfare too for numerous out of wedlock kiddies

Then the Democrats would have a hard time winning elections.

I think this article is spot on. Surround The Messiah with a squadron of butch gay women and sponsor a trip to Iran for him and the family. Napolitano can be the leader. Bite Me should also go along to add more “stature” to the group, Harry Reid and San Fran Nan also.

Give me a break!

Equating women in the USA with a random NY Democrat female elected official’s ignorant rant?

I would say no cigar, but that statement changed meaning after Clinton was POTUS...

BTW, if a man “hires out”, no free woman will ever want to touch him.
Seriously, never to be overcome, "ick" action. But you now that, right?

Would more female agents have made the sex scandal involving special agents and Colombian prostitutes less likely? No one can answer that with any certainty

I think I can answer it with certainty, as a female police officer, and the answer is it wouldn't make a fig of difference. You are either a responsible professional or you aren't. Geesh, I'm so sick of these idiots.

Maybe when I see libs bitching about jobs that are way over-represented by women and saying how bad it is, and that real actions must be taken and laws must be written to fix it to demand men be represented equally, then I will give two sh1ts about gender equality.

Heh, like it matters about about gender - it is all about decency, honesty, integrity, and much more! These folks had none of that. I care little about the gender, but I do care about the decency of those that serve our President.

I would say that honesty and decency starts from the top - what say you?
