Executive ‘sweet’
New York Post, by Andrea Peyser

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/25/2012 10:58:56 AM

He lost me at “sweetie.” President Obama wielded the cringe-worthy “S” word at the first presidential debate. He wasn’t talking to Mitt Romney. He also was not addressing some groupie or reporter — often one and the same — but his wife, Michelle. “I just want to wish you, sweetie, a happy anniversary,” the president said to silent groans from assembled females. And me. It was not the first sexist slur to spring from Obama’s lips. “Sweetie” is the man’s term of art whenever he feels the itch to cut down half the population.

As someone who grew up in the South, 'Hon, was a normal expression. In fact, I still catch myself telling women that on occasion...

It's not meant as a slur or putdown, and I've yet had a woman complain. In fact, several have been flattered by it!

Ughhhhh, I am SO SICK of this PC BS.
I work for a goobermint agency here in NJ. The atmosphere is TOXIC due to the rules regarding workplace comportment.

My Mother, God bless her, is convinced we lost this country when we gave women the vote.
There are times I am hard pressed to argue.

Get over it Andrea! It is a common term used by both men and women when speaking with the one they love.

Andrea: You need to get over the fact that you are female. It is obviously a disappointment to you. Your new-age political correctness does nothing to advance you or other women.

Obama's use of the term was obviously not a derogatory issue. Did he call you sweetie? Why should you make it an issue? You are what is wrong with liberal women.

My husband always used "honey" at work when he'd forgotten some gals name. Maybe Obama uses "sweetie".

"Sweetie" is a "sexist slur" when addressing your own wife? Or daughter? Or neice or granddaughter?

My Gawd, some women are so debilitatingly PC. My husband calls me "sweetie". I have women friends I call "sweetie", I have men friends (whom my husband knows well) who call me "sweetie". I'm proud of that.

It's a term of endearment, or is endearment something liberals know nothing about?

Oh God, Hell must be freezing over, because I actually am going to defend N∅bama on this one.

''Sweetie'' is a term of endearment as long as the woman being called that doesn't mind. I am pretty confident that Moochelle doesn't mind that her husband of many years calls her ''sweetie''. She probably has an equally sweet pet name for him.

My wife calls me ''babe'' all the time. I call her ''baby''. We both appreciate that affecttion intended with those pet names.

Feminism is even a greater mental disease than lie-beralism!!!!!

Wow, strongly worded article from NYC. Pretty gutsy for her.

For those of you posting in support of Obama, please read the article first. Like stated earlier, the complaint is based upon a general use of the term toward other women, not just to Obama's wife.

The page was refreshing to read (especially the other stories).

I have not doubt, second term or not, eventually, the angry black woman will have enough of the snide, condescending, vindictive President Obama.

Good article. Very typical of the "Sweetie for me, but not for thee" attitude of the Left. At this point in American politics it isn't about whether or not calling a woman sweetie or honey or hon is sexist, it's about the incredible double-standard that the Left consistently exhibits. They have created these PC rules of conduct for the last 40 years and are very good at demanding that they be followed, unless of course it happens to be one of their own breaking the rules, then it's folksy, sweet, unaffected, etc. or worse, it's just boys being boys. If the free contraceptives were really about helping people with health care and reproduction there would be free vasectomies and condoms included in the HHS mandate. But somehow, it's we women and our private parts that cause all of the problems, so we must be given something.
By the way, did't VP Biden refer to his debate moderator as hon or honey?

I read the whole article and it looks like she's upset about Obama using the term "sweetie" to apply to women in a professional setting.

It's been my experience that whenever I'm called a "term of endearment" by a man I don't know, it's usually by a leftist and it feels creepy. I also believe that leftist men are more sexist because they're always making a big deal about what they're doing for women, (like we are so helpless without them). Frankly, I don't want their "help," I can take care of myself if they'll just get out of my way.

It appears that lots of people didn't read the article. In the context that the Øtard uses it (exclusive of his endearment term for his beard - and then it's a whole 'nother story), it IS condescending - and it is not appropriate for someone in a position of power to use it to appear superior to someone they have never met. To equate this to a diner waitress misses the point - most probably on purpose. I think most people understand this and the libs are having a field day to rake over a democrat woman that dares venture a foot off the plantation. Andrea, the libs will never look at you the same way again. Come to the light.

Read the article, posters. It is all about how Obama thinks that all women want is free contraception and abortions and that indeed is patronizing. Furthermore, she brings out how Romney has treated women very well, having the highest percentage working for him in his Cabinet. It includes a praise report for Romney from a liberal Democrat African American woman who served on Romney's Cabinet. It is a good read.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Over 80 members of the Brandeis University faculty sent a letter to the school’s president earlier this month, demanding the school withdraw its honorary degree invitation to women’s rights activist and critic of Islam Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Brandeis rescinded the invitation to Hirsi Ali last week, prompting a public backlash from Hirsi Ali’s supporters. In the April 6 letter, faculty members called on Brandeis President Fred Lawrence to drop Hirsi Ali from the ceremony because of comments she has made about her opposition to Islam. “We are writing to urge you to rescind immediately the invitation to Ms. Ayaan Hirsi

Bad as Obama’s poll numbers are, they bode worse for Congressional Democrats. Obama is being buoyed by continued strong support from Democrat voters. The problem for Congressional Democrats is that November’s election outcome will not be determined in Democrat strongholds. Recent Quinnipiac polling data (released April 2, of 1,578 registered voters nationwide, with a MOE of +/-2.5%) showed the president with a deeply negative rating on his handling of the economy: 40% approval and 55% disapproval. In his sixth year in office, and the fifth year after the recession, 74% of respondents still rated the economy as “not so good” to

During her brief but lucrative stint as president of Wal-Mart’s charitable foundation in 2012, Sylvia Matthews Burwell received at least $750,000 in bonuses from an organization that doles out hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions but keeps a tight lid on its own compensation practices, records show. Ms. Burwell spent a little more than a year running Wal-Mart’s foundation before President Obama tapped her to be his budget chief last year — and then last week asked her to take over as health and human services secretary.

The Supreme Court has made pretty clear that putting your money where your mouth is deserves broad protection as a form of free political speech. The justices are about to consider whether outright lying in a campaign deserves a similar First Amendment shield. The court’s recent decisions easing the flow of generous campaign contributions already shifted the electoral landscape. If the court finds that even the most patently outrageous statements about candidates may not be barred by law, those two decisions combined could expand the rhetorical battlefield of the midterm elections and raise the attack ad volume as never before.

The Real Meaning of Soviet
Agitprop in Jay Carney’s Kitchen

As soon as the photograph of Soviet propaganda posters in Jay Carney’s kitchen hit the Internet, right-wing pundits began to draw conclusions about White House Press Secretary’s ideology, morals, and political leanings. It was as if things that a man merely places on his walls and looks at day after day can be any indication of his life choices. If that were so, the meals in Carney’s kitchen would also probably match the menu of the place and time of the posters. His family would be living on a diet of beets, gruel, occasional rat, and thinly sliced boiled jackboots, which

The Saga of Bundy Ranch --Federal Power, Rule

BUNKERVILLE, NEVADA—The Bundy Ranch roundup has understandably stirred thin-stretched emotions as the federal government seizes cattle belonging to the Bundy family. The family settled in the late 1800’s and has ranched in the area since. The federal government allowed Nevada ranchers to graze their cattle on federal tracts of land adjacent to their private properties for generations. The federal government later created the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to administer and “protect” the vast swaths of federal land—including the land the Bundy family’s livelihood was—and still is—dependent upon. The BLM began restricting ranchers’ usage of federal lands to protect various

A huge wave of public testimony, reports and documents on what happened in Benghazi now floods Washington, and little of it focuses on the role of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton before, on, or after Sept. 11, 2012. Over the past 18 months, there have been at least seven public congressional hearings and three fact-finding reports on the terrorist attack. If not invisible, Mrs. Clinton is certainly portrayed as being only in the background during Benghazi, unaware of key events.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings.
