Michelle Obama: ´Women
Are Smarter Than Men´

Breitbart Big Government, by Charlie Spiering

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/6/2014 2:26:26 PM

First Lady Michelle Obama shared some thoughts about women versus men during a conversation with former First Lady Laura Bush at the U.S Africa Leaders Summit in Washington D.C. Obama explained that as First Lady it was important to remember to use the position to highlight their personal interests. “We can’t waste this spotlight, it is temporary and life is short and change is needed and women are smarter than men. And the men can’t complain because you’re outnumbered today,” she said as the audience laughed. Obama cited Laura Bush as a First Lady that acted with a level of

Comments:
That is certainly a sexist thing to say! If some guy (especially a conservative) said that he would have been pilloried and ripped to shreds by the those in the media and the insane feminazis. But of course Mooch is completely off limits.

The men who earned their way into the schools you attended only through affirmative action might have something to say about that, Aunt Esther.

" Obama explained that as First Lady it was important to remember to use the position to highlight their personal interests. "

As if we hadn´t noticed.
Let´s see her list:

- numerous vacations
- lobster dinners
- expensive dresses
- 24/7 personal security
- private school for children
- "free" room & board at White House for mother
- all expenses paid travel for herself and entourage

The list goes on...

This ridiculous statement must be Mooch´s rationale as to why we need more women in govn. Nobody can answer why we need more women in govn other than to say we need more women in govn. It is like asking what is the top tax rate people should pay. Libs can never give a number other than to say at least 50%, which is like saying we all should work 8 hours for 4 hours pay. Doesn´t add up does it.....

It disgusts me that Laura Bush allows Obama to manipulate her. This from an administration that does nothing but disparage and blame President Bush for everything it can think of. Even for a good cause, the end doesn´t justify the means.

The difference between the two women is striking. Laura Bush has been helping the woman and girls of Africa for quite some time without the need for attention. Michelle last year at Laura´s summit in Africa found a way to use these people to grab more attention for herself. At the end of the day the women of Africa know who their true friend is and who the phony is.

Here is the hard reality.

If we woke up tomorrow, and all the women were gone, civilization would continue. Men would possibly even find away to genetically create embryos in the lab so that there would be a new generation. Men would be lonely and heartbroken without females, but life would go on.

If we woke up tomorrow, and all the men were gone, civilization would come to a halt and likely most of the female population would be dead in a matter of months, certainly by a year.

Why? Men operate, engineer, build and maintain all the heavy industrial power plants, water provisioning, and are by far the greatest number of farmers. Trucking, aviation, really all transportation is primarily run and maintained by men. While there are a good number of female doctors, most of the surgeons are men. Most of the advanced degreed specialists in medicine---the hard core heart surgeons, inventors of drugs, etc. are men. Most of the police, fire, and military are men. Most of the inventors of new technology are men. Most engineers and scientists are men. Most patent owners are men. Most people who can hunt, dish, and build shelters by hand are men.

So you can crow about degrees, and insinuate that women are "better than men". Keep living in a fantasy world.

Oh, I like women a lot, and there are many great women out there. But let´s keep at least one foot in reality.

Bill Ayers, according to the right, is Barack Obama’s terrorist trainer and ghostwriter. Upon further inspection, Ayers is nothing quite as dramatic or fearsome. While more famous for his anti-war activities as a founder of the Weather Underground in the 1960s and ‘70s, he is now a committed educator. Retired from his education professorship at the University of Illinois in Chicago, Ayers continues to give lectures to teachers in training, speak at education conferences and agitate against America’s two-tiered educational system – one for rich, one for poor – on behalf of low-income parents, students and instructors.

The Obama administration is ramping up its response to West Africa´s Ebola crisis, preparing to assign 3,000 U.S. military personnel to the afflicted region to supply medical and logistical support to overwhelmed local health care systems and to boost the number of beds needed to isolate and treat victims of the epidemic. President Barack Obama planned to announce the stepped up effort Tuesday during a visit to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta amid alarm that the outbreak could spread and that the deadly virus could mutate into a more easily transmitted disease.

In early June 1964, a group of Republican governors sought to wrestle control of their party from Barry Goldwater, the Arizona conservative who was about to lead the GOP to one of the most crushing defeats in its history. The governors saw a disaster in the making, and sought a moderate candidate who could capture the imaginations of grassroots Republicans—but also beat President Lyndon Johnson in the general election. Led by Ohio’s James Rhodes—the Republican Governors Association was meeting in Cleveland, and Rhodes was a legendary vote counter—the group included Pennsylvania’s William Scranton and later New York’s Nelson Rockefeller.

As he laid out his strategy to combat the Islamic State in both Iraq and Syria, President Obama rejected the “best military advice” of his top military commander in the Middle East. Quoting two U.S. military officials, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, commander of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), said “that his best military advice was to send a modest contingent of American troops, principally Special Operations forces, to advise and assist Iraqi army units in fighting the militants.” Austin’s recommendation was taken to the White House by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen.

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate.

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places. It has been confirmed in 22 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday, appearing in three states where it had not been previously: Georgia, Michigan and Washington state. These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962. It can cause severe breathing problems, a particular danger for children who may suffer from asthma or other
