It really has been amazing to watch Obama´s media cover for the lack of diversity in his cabinet picks. A fine example of this hypocrisy came on CNN´s State of the Union Sunday when host Candy Crowley actually began a segment on the subject by asking her guests, "Does it matter?" (video follows with transcript and commentary):CANDY CROWLEY: There is a lot made about the president´s latest picks in the cabinet. Jack Lew, Senator Hagel, Senator Kerry in key positions here. Treasury, defense, state department. Something that your colleague Congressman Rangel said about the lack of diversity
Always amusing watching liberals juggling ethics and semantics.
Maybe he could get some of his operatives to claim American Indian ancestry. If they´re short on that - they could always borrow some from that mentally bankrupt bastion of liberal diversity - Elizabeth Warren.
Face it - the only *actual* diversity most liberals possess is in the sexual orientation department...
No, it shouldn´t. The most qualified person, whomever that is, is what is important. Problem is the D have never believed that and therefore appear hypocritical and going against their core belief that it is the color of your skin, your gender all those intangibles that really shouldn´t matter. Qualifications is not a term the D understand.
Of course lack of diversity in an Obama White House doesn´t matter, Candy. Diversity only matters when it can be used as a sledgehammer to criticize Republican administrations. Just remember, Crowley, as debate moderator you did your best to help get that malignant incompetent re-elected.
1. "The Won" ["Stinky" to Michelle, and to us] shall not be criticized. Period. Got that, Noel?
2. "Diversity"? First, as I heard a radio-caller once say, "That´s what zoos are for." Well put. But in the White House, among Democrats, and throughout the other camps of the left [media, academia, Hollywood, etc.], what you will find is a nearly-perfect template-fit of ideological positions, no matter the vessel in which they reside.
First there was equal employment opportunity. And when that did not satisfy the leftists, affirmative action came along. And when that didn´t work, diversity became the operative term. Diversity, we were told by the left, was immportant, because, well, it offered diversity. So if a woman or minority was less qualified for employment, hire them anyway, for the sake of diversity. (Beyond diversity is the quota system being used by graduate schools. Blacks and hispanics are granted admission (And ironically, white women are discriminated against)inconsistent with their academic ability.)
Race and gender really don´t matter in dem politics but for the reason candy came up with. It´s because they´re all across the board far left liberals, that is the real diversity problem. Blacks don´t like global warming or gay marriage but they go along with the program because they want Obama´s "help" in other areas.Blacks are falling further behind despite Obama throwing more money into poverty programs and sending blacks to college.They´re still going to hit a brick wall when it´s employment time because they´re fully indoctrinated America haters.
Obama is more than a president to these fools.he´s god and king also,so he can do no wrong even if it´s huge examples of hypocrisy.
The Hypocrisy of CNN and the wretched Annie Crowley are appalling; I watched this horrid woman lecturing a Republican about "Needing to Compromise" on the gun issue. Her god, 0bama, is the poster boy of noncompromise, he puffs out his chest and proclaims to the Republicans that He Won, He makes the rules. On the budget deal, the Republicans raised taxes on the rich and many others and asked what 0bama would compromise on ... his answer was, "Nothing, I get this for free." Crowley and 0bama are hypocrites.
(Video) With the passing of Nelson Mandela, the world has lost one of its greatest leaders. When Time magazine compiled its list of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century in the late 1990s, Mandela was one of just 20 in the category of most influential leaders and revolutionaries, along with our own civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Among others on the list: Presidents Theodore Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan, British Prime Ministers Winston Churchill and Margaret Thatcher, Pope John Paul II, and Israel´s first Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion. And, in a nod to evil´s influence,
Media Buzz host Howard Kurtz brought all of his sports metaphors to a segment about Hardball host Chris Matthews’ recent interview with President Barack Obama, arguing that the sympathetic interview may have played to the MSNBC base but did little to advance Obama’s point of view. “I expected Chris Matthews to deliver a sympathetic friendly interview with President Obama,” Kurtz said. “But I wouldn’t even say he was pitching softballs—I’d describe it as whiffle ball…This is a guy who loves to interrupt his guests, right? He let the president go on and on.” “I would have thought, just to cover
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Sunday said that the life of a national politician can be an “ordeal” and the impact of uncivil treatment on his family could nix any 2016 presidential run. “It really is an ordeal to be part of public life...I also hate it when family is attacked and they get into the news,” he said on "Fox News Sunday." Paul said that some weeks, “the haters and the hacks go after” him and other weeks he has a more positive view. The Kentucky senator said he and his family would take about a year to decide
Really Big Coloring Books, Inc. has released a comic book-style coloring book starring Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. “Ted Cruz to the Future™ — Comic Coloring Activity Book” is a “non-partisan, fact-driven view of how Texas Sen. Rafael Edward ‘Ted’ Cruz became a U.S. senator and details, through his quotes and public information his ideas for what he believes will help America grow,” according to the description. Cruz’s inspiring story as the child of immigrants, Texas solicitor general, and finally, prominent junior senator, is playfully, yet accurately portrayed in a series of outlined pictures begging to be defaced by deft crayonists.
During Friday´s White House briefing, Jonathan Karl of ABC News and Peter Alexander of NBC News both pressed White House spokesman Jay Carney on a Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report that found President Obama and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius had met only once during the three and half years after the passage of ObamaCare. (Video) After Alexander asked about the GAI report, Carney bizarrely suggested that Alexander should have called him to ask the question. Apparently, Carney would have preferred not to have to answer the question on camera -- and for good
In his attempt to downplay the IRS scandal during his soft-ball interview with Chris Matthews, Thursday, the President of the United States subverted the ongoing DOJ investigation of the scandal. Obama declared that the IRS office in Cincinnati was merely trying to "streamline the system" for “bureaucratic reasons” and that agents weren’t intentionally singling out “Tea Party folks.” Via White House Dossier: "If on the other hand, you’ve got an office in Cincinnati in the IRS office that I think for bureaucratic reasons is trying to streamline what a difficult law to interpret about whether non-profit is actually a political
A congressional delegation is expected to go to Nelson Mandela’s memorial services in South Africa and is scheduled leave Sunday, Fox News learned Saturday. It is unclear who House Speaker John Boehner is sending, but members of the Congressional Black Caucus are expected to be on the trip. President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama also will travel to South Africa next week to honor Mandela, the White House said Friday. Former President George W. Bush, as well as Laura Bush, plan to travel with the Obamas on Air Force One to the services, a spokesman confirmed.
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
7. On the U.S. war with Iraq: “If there is a country that has committed unspeakable atrocities in the world, it is the United States of America. They don’t care for human beings.” Via cbsnews.com 6.

The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
