Biden: 'I've Never Found' Women in Workforce to Be 'Kinder and Gentler' Daniel Halper December 3, 2013 7:26 AM
Vice President Joe Biden says that women are not "kinder and gentler" in the work place than men.
"I've never found that to be the case," Biden told a Japanese audience. "They're as tough, they're as strong, they're as everything as a man is - and vice-versa."
Via the Associated Press:
At a roundtable later with business executives, Biden said he'd heard some say women are good in the workforce because they are kinder and gentler.
"I've never found that to be the case," Biden said to laughter. "They're as tough, they're as strong, they're as everything as a man is - and vice-versa."
The vice president is in Asia this week for an official state trip, where he's also expressed concern about China's recent activities:
Vice President Joe Biden says the U.S. is deeply concerned about China's attempt to unilaterally change the status quo in the East China Sea.
Biden says China's declaration of a new air defense zone has raised regional tensions and increased the risk of accidents and miscalculation.
I just love him. Keep talking, Joe!
Well, he did have to work with Hillary!
Aren't you a career government bureaucrap?
Actually....I agree with him, for once. The women I’ve worked with were as varied as the men, but I wouldn’t say they were particularly “kinder and gentler.”
(It could be because I'm warming to the idea of a 1.75 year Biden presidency after Zero gets impeached & convicted
Nine times out of ten I would rather a female bag my groceries instead of a male - they are definitely gentler with my groceries.
I once was appointed manager over a group of 14 women. The manager who hired them had quit. He selected them based on their looks.
A bunch of very pretty evil sneaky lazy incompetent women. About 1/3 could do their job.
Even for perhaps the most inept human in the mutiverse (close competition with the Obamadork), the Biden comment contains a vestige of truth.
My wife (who is orders of magnitude more intelligent than the two cretins mentioned above) has stated that women are meaner and less tolerant when in positions of power.
One can only imagine the evil which will be unleashed should the Hillabeast achieve power. Just think pure evil coupled with her small amount of intelligence. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
Biden could simply recite the date and time, and it would come off awkward.
One of the women in the company is making a Joe Bidenesque statement which ends with the declaration "I can do anything a man can do!"
The foreman turns to her and says "I'll bet you can't stand on the edge of the bathtub and pee in the toilet!"
WTF is this idiot talking about ?
and this is going to negotiate with China over their air defense ID zone??
buffoon, yes, but his statement is not inaccurate....
(people are what they are, methinks, they are not necessarily nicer or gentler just because they are females or females in the workforce...)
Well, there was nothing kind or gentle about any of the women in the Clinton or the Obama Administrations, or among the Democrat women in the House and Senate.
Reno. Hillary! Sebelius. Power. Napolitano. etc.
So the guy has a point!
Ok; let’s play the same mental exercise here again.
Imagine Dan Quayle said this; or GWB; or Reagan, or Palin.
The press reaction would be the same!!??
“This is Chairman Xi”
“Zee Who? I’m looking for that Jinping guy”
Or Mitty. BINDERS and BINDERS of kinder and gentler women ...
The US where wimmin are wimmin and mens are scared.
That’s because you’ve never had a job, Joe.
Mostly, Joe....YOU have never BEEN “in the workplace”!!!
True story. Women can be ruthless in the workforce. The amount of back stabbing is limitless.
Well, has anyone had a hit single titled “Evil Man”? Or made a film called “Mean Boys”?
no, but there was “Wild Boys”
Hey Babe! I've never found women in the workforce to be kinder and gentler ... they're all crazy wild like you ...
BIDEN HAS NEVER BEEN ABLE TO FIND HIS BOTTOM WITH BOTH HANDS!
I found that out up close and personal with a wacko female IT supervisor that I honestly think was deranged.
She darn near succeeded in driving me to a nervous breakdown. Most everyone seemed satisfied with my work and would tell her to her face. She tuned that out apparently. Every day, usually a few times, I got snapped at, glared at, chewed out (legitimate or not), accused of all kinds of things and generally made miserable.
I took a lower paying but for most part better job outside of state gov. Besides I wasn’t going to get any kind of reference. After a while I went into contract work and later I got a very good support job that pays more than her state gig. I heard she left for a job at TD bank. I feel sorry for any males and conservative females that inherited that fat, ugly hag.
Wow. What guts. He will not equivocate.
He will flip or flop depending on which way the wind is blowing.
I’m a woman and supervised up to 100 women at a time. Men were so much easier to work with. Women are awful, always starting junk with each other. I’d rather herd rattle snakes.
Just curious, when was Uncle Joe ever a member of the private sector workforce?
What does he know about a workforce - any workforce???
Your story is all too true. I work IT in a private company at the moment, but I know females in IT tend to congregate to management instead of skill areas. I’ve had female managers and a lot of them have a chip on their shoulders.
Ha ha! You’re right, that settles it, men ARE superior to women!
Wow. I agree with Biden about something (in general, of course). Problem is, they are that way because they need to be in order to have the men trust them to be tough managers. The stereotypes of women operate even when the women are promoted. If they didn’t act like Wanda the Witch, they would be thought of as cream puffs.
We women who worked for women bosses understood that and gave them slack on it. Only the very few horrible true witches were disliked.
