Skip to comments.The Irony: Obama's Female Debate Coach Complained About 'Hostile Workplace' at White House

Last night, President Obama presented himself as a crusader for women's issues. He later tweeted:
Mitt Romney still wont say whether hed stand up for equal pay, but he did tell us he has binders full of women. OFA.BO/LMVWmZ

What's interesting about this is President Obama's own history with women in the work place.
When one of President Obama's debate coaches, Anita Dunn, worked at the White House, this is what she reportedly had to say about her experience there:
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.
In the same piece, former economic adviser Christina Romer is reported as saying, "I felt like a piece of meat."
I felt like a piece of meat, Christina Romer, former head of the Council of Economic Advisers, said of one meeting in which Suskind writes she was boxed out by Summers, reported the Post.
Time magazine called Obama's White House a "Boys' Club."

no surprise! that’s how muslims treat women!
She’s a dim in every meaning of the word. If she succeeds in helping Hussein steal the election, imagine her surprise when one day she goes into the office and she is forced to attend a mandatory fitting for a burka!
AMAZING! HEY CAN YOU SAY THIS A LITTLE LOUDER OBAMA?!
Obama is a chauvinist. Remember 2008 when he was calling female reporters “honey” and “sweetie”? Remember Geraldine Ferraro saying she wouldn’t vote for him because he was a sexist? Obama, personally, treating women like dirt shouldn’t surprise anyone.
It took only 2 replies
Ms. Romer. You don’t understand. Obama doesn’t think of you as “meat”. He thinks of you as “fish”.
Those are the lucky ones. The rest are thrown under the bus, like Hillary.
Give them abortion and you can use them any way you like.
“You can put lipstick on a pig. It’s still a pig.
You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change. It’s still gonna stink. “ -Obama
I think they might have meant something else besides a place where men sexual harass women.
So they realise Obama is a POS and yet they still help him get elected and they will vote for him.
What does that say for their intelligence?
They were probably treated that way because they are idiots.
That would be Jeremiah Wright's Down Low club, a dating service for closet pansies like the illegal alien Kenyan poofter, aka Down Low with Barry O. All this according to the New York Slimes and Jerome Corsi of WND. Of course given his hatred of women, along with his malignant narcissism, and his patented pansy dance down the Air Force 1 steps, Down Low Obama is pretty far out of the closet.
It tells me they don’t care about women in the work place, their own experience, or the presidents ACTUAL aditude, as apposed to his publicly claimed opinion.
But that is of course a frequent problem with this president offend calming one thing while in reality(in practice) he does(produces) something very different.
It is the most striking trade mark of President Obama that what he says has so little to do with what he does, has done, or apparently intends to do.
...and I seem to recall a study or survey of salaries of women who worked in the Obama Admin showed that women were paid less than male counterparts (?? maybe .73 or .76 cents compared to $1) anyone recall the specifics?
Also, when Mr. Obama claimed that after learning of the Benghazzi attack, he immediately ordered that security be tightened there and at other Embassy/Consulate offices. Really? Is that why a CNN Reporter FOUND the diary of the Ambassador about a week after the attack? So much for tightened security.
put some ice on it
“Women’s health” is really about a lie.
The lie the left projects is that it is somehow beneficial to women to have a way to get a free and secret abortion if they ever want one.
This “benefit” is only attractive to those who have fallen for another big lie, that having sex outside of marriage is a good thing for women.
The lie offers young women the prospect of marrying well a) after years of living promiscuously while procrastinating on life’s responsibilities and b) even if they conceived a child out of wedlock, i.e., a bastard, or fatherless child.
The lie offers a way to rationalize them murdering their illegitimate child in their womb, giving them excuses with which to decieve themselves, all the while simply using one sin to try to hide another. Everyone knows, but no everyone will admit, that the lie is all about putting the idea in young women’s minds that if they become pregnant by a boyfriend that they don’t want to be the father of their child they can kill the child before it’s born - so they can approach the man they do want to marry in the future without having a child by an old boyfriend in tow. Of course, while the child is not there, the promiscuous habits have been formed, and juxtaposed to the responsibility of marriage serve to constantly offer the heart and mind an alternative to it.
The lie leaves out what medical science is slowly and in some cases begrudgingly revealing, that a promiscuous lifestyle is a very unhealthy one. Of course, the medical industry profits enormously from unhealthy lifestyles, and so typically does not preach against them. Instead, it takes the enabling stance of promoting the use of condoms, which encourages promiscuity, going so far as to very deceptively label condom use as “safe”.
Today, couples living together out of wedlock is viewed as normal and acceptable by a large swath of society. The truth is, this is the only way that many women can resist the temptation to divorce these would-be husbands, that is, to not be married. The temptation for a woman to divorce her husband is constantly pushed on the women of America; it even offers the injustice of a lopsided settlement where the norm is that marital assets, child custody and even future income generally flow towards the woman and away from the man. With no jury trial, men are deprived by a judge of their property and income, while women can, under the tutelage of their attorney, learn to get “everything they have coming to them”. Once a couple gets sucked into the modern American “way of life”, it’s very difficult to avoid having their lives unfold in much the same dismal way as it does for countless others with no real moral anchor. The best they can look forward to is that feeble hold that the “limbo” nature of not being married has on their minds to keep them from separating, using the pathetic logic that they can’t get divorced if they’re not married (which, of course, is a lie, because any group of people living together winds up in family court if they go to court to resolve disputes amongst themselves).
The duties of a wife that have been the norm for time immemorial - essential to both a happy marriage and home - are denigrated by society and government, which replaces them as a most worthy goal with the mythical “career”, which rarely offers any true satisfaction to any of the young women who sappily charge off pursuing it. Of course, what’s not said by the deceivers, but is innately understood by the saps, is that the “career” really offers a net pay check with the young woman’s name on it. This, of course, becomes “her money”, while the live-in boyfriend’s check becomes “our money”. Having this personal paycheck to use according to her whim is the monetary carrot dangled in front of young women with the aim of turning them into consumers constantly coveting the latest fashion. Unfortunately, this diverts their attention from planning for children and old age.
Men, of course, fare just as badly in our “modern” society. In a complimentary manner, our increasingly godless society is pushing them to avoid responsibility and planning for their children and old age. Instead, since many are simply being manipulated with sex and have abdicated their responsibility and authority, they accept the lie and promulgate it. They lie to and convince themselves that fornication is some sort of right and tradition. They give in to being manipulated by, and then lie themselves to their “girlfriends”, by going along with the idea that the relationship is based on anything other than them seeking sex. The woman certainly can entice the man with sex, but at that point, what has she gained ? A man without his own direction or control of his most basic urges, or a man who just humors her and uses her. Either way, not much.
People hate the idea of being enslaved to something, but most often they don’t realize or admit that we are all a slave to something, it’s just a matter of what we are a slave to.
Many are a slave to their supposed “freedom”, and they sacrifice true joy and security for immoral “fun” in the here and now.
Ok, here’s an IMHO that is extremely blunt.
Romer and Dunn are not raving beauty queens. If they were, that would have gained them some “attention” and they would feel perhaps “empowered”.
Both are left-leaning to various degrees, but they are not top dogs in the leftist hierarchy.
As long as they go along with leftist ideology, they are merely useful tools to leftists.
These are the reasons why they found themselves in an environment which they perceived to be hostile to “women”.
When you are perceived as merely a useful idiot, you’re not on the “inside track”.
Contrast them with Moochelle and the pResident’s brain, Valarie Jarrett. They are “running things”, they are not useful tools. Well, not as much as the two sour grapes.
With leftism, the ultimate goal is the “party” or the “movement”. Any one person (since these are people who reject God) has zero personal worth. It’s all about what one can contribute to the movement; once you’re no longer useful, you’re discarded. And if you’re not one of the big dogs in the movement - contrary to what every young leftist believes - you’re merely a cog in the wheel.
