Women’s group: Obama’s cabinet ‘clearly’ needs to be 50-percent female
Daily Caller ^ | December 6, 2012 | Caroline May

As President Barack Obama finalizes his second-term cabinet picks, the nation’s leading feminist group is pushing for more female appointments.

Currently, the president, who garnered 55 percent of the women’s vote on Election Day, has eight females in his 23-member cabinet. According the National Organization for Women, that number isn’t nearly high enough.

NOW president Terry O’Neill, in an interview with The Daily Caller, explained that she would like to see complete gender parity in Obama’s second-term cabinet.

“I think that if half of the cabinet were women and half of the Supreme Court and half of Congress were women, we would see a lot more policies for expanding education and health care and social services that allow communities to thrive,” O’Neill explained. “We’d see a lot less spending on military weapons systems, and we would also see a lot less of the most powerful, moneyed people not paying their fair share.”

The government needs more “lady parts” to do the thinking and planning for us. Good idea.

Can’t wait for the reaction when it’s discovered that it needs to be 97% heterosexual.

So the women would spend even more money on entitlements, because that is what makes communities “thrive”?
As a woman I am always offended by the assertion that we are so much better than men.
It isn’t true. Women are just as flawed as men. Like it or not, we are not smarter, or more compassionate, or more moral. In fact, in many areas where society is struggling with immorality and the consequences, woman have led the decline.
Cabinet level jobs should go to the most quaified person, period.

And will Obama name a Very Rich White Man over a Poor Black Woman for Sect. of State?

Wonder if tax evader Al Sharpton brought this up in his tax-the-rich meeting with the president.

This is gonna be good for popcorn sales.

Despite their high-sounding B.S. everyone knows the Democrats are the party of the Pale Stale Male, far and away above the GOP. The GOP actually has FAR more women and minorities in positions of power and influence. The Dems throw a few in there for window dressing but all the decisions get made by white guys.

“Aha, a quota diversity group. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.”

Diversity for its own sake is equivalent to dorkosity.

What this witch is saying is “hey gang, let’s go full bore socialism. Let’s start expropriating (or expropriating a lot more of) the wealth of private citizens. We useless mouthbreathers at NOW need more money from the producers.”

Fifty percent female sounds hoggish.

Don’t the Nancy Boys, Sexual Convertibles and Faggots rate a place in the plantation barnyard with the other democrat freaks?

Obama could give the Fluke and her attorney Gloria Allard a job in his cabinet. Would fit right in with his thinking.

A very large percentage of the types who made up the original NOW were out and out Marxists. Like Betty Friedan. Some tried to hide their hard leftist inclinations from the media (who were more than willing to overlook their Marxist ties), and some made no bones about it. At the core of these nitwits is a profound lack of knowledge of basic economics and how wealth is created. And how freedom is protected.

I’m so tired of this old stale diatribe. Part of me has gotten to the point at which I think it might not be a bad idea for all men to just quit working. Let the feminists take care of everything. I’m sure everyone will be so happy and everything will be grand..

It’s Christmastime For Obama’s Wealthy Bundlers

By MICHELLE MALKIN
Posted 12/05/2012 07:01 PM ET

Merry Crony-mas! It’s time to pass out the goodies. While President Obama’s lips champion the middle class, his administration’s old hands are preparing to lavish rewards on the creme de la campaign creme: his wealthiest political donors.

Several media outlets reported this week that the White House is considering fashion doyenne Anna Wintour for a possible appointment as U.S. ambassador to Great Britain or France.

The rumored short list also includes Obama campaign finance chairman Matthew Barzun and investment banker Marc Lasry. The three share one common, er, “qualification”: Each raked in more than $500,000 for Team Obama 2012.

As previously reported in this column, Wintour held multiple million-dollar fundraisers for Obama in Hollywood, New York, London and Paris — raking in the fourth highest amount for the Man of the (Glamorous) People. Wintour’s $40,000-per-plate dinners attracted Hollywood’s biggest leftist celebs.
