Obama's white guys

President Obama is being criticized because his cabinet is looking too pale and too male for the PC crowd. While I enjoy seeing Obama hoisted on his own petard, I applaud his commitment to excellence over inclusion. I don’t like all his choices, but I agree that the president should seek those he thinks best, w/o regard to races, gender, creed or national origin. That is the American way.

What are the chances that the Obama administration has ever rejected the most qualified candidate for a job because that individual was female, rather than let out a large "Huzzah" and rush her name to the Senate? Exactly zero.

We persist in the myth the discrimination exists. It does, but usually white males are the victims these days. Everybody knows that if they choose the "diversity" candidate, they will be praised. On the other hand, choosing the white guy will require lots of explaining. The incentives are clearly against the white male candidate.

You know that there has not been a white male Secretary of State for 16 years. Was this the cause of consternation? Of course not, nor should it have been. The same should be true the other way.

I think that it is impossible that President Obama holds some secret hostility toward women or minorities. His advisers are those that he thinks best.

As I wrote above, it is fun to see our liberal friends tearing themselves apart about, but it really is silly. Maybe Obama will cave to the pressure. He shouldn't.

I think much of the problem has to do with a general inability to understand statistics. Some people really believe that if Obama chooses ten advisers based only on merit he would come up with five women, one black, one Hispanic and a few people with mixed ancestry including native Americans, Asians etc. If you think that, enroll in a class about probability and sampling ... or you can remain ignorant and believe that President Obama is a closet bigot.

Of course, if you believe that crap, why are you untroubled by the fact that nearly 57% of college students are female or that the NBA has few white stars?

Susan Rice would’ve continued the streak with Secretaries of State. Too bad the GOP blocked the appointment; Rice would’ve been a much better Secretary of State than Kerry.

Kerry is not my favorite guy, but I don’t think Rice is qualified. I am glad she was dropped. It was not only the Libya thing.

BTW - the GOP didn’t block her. Obama never put her forward. I think he didn’t want her under oath re Libya.

So Obama is a sexist now. Looks like the Republicans ain’t the only ones that are waring against women.
Neither Susan Rice or John Kerry are qualified to be Secretary of State. But I’d a whole heap rather see Rice than Kerry.
C&J is right about Obama not wanting to have Rice under oath in front of the Senate. She would be asked questions about Benghazi that Obama doesn’t want answered. But then she just might lie to protect herself and her boss. Wouldn’t be the first time that someone lied to Congress to protect themselves. Or their boss.

Look, make up your mind, because the inconsistency of your criticisms is making the truth all too obvious: All you want to do is oppose Democrats and Liberals, particularly Obama, who has had the temerity to win the White House, and not let you have it back.

I have no trouble with what Obama did. He chose those people he thought were the best qualified. In fact, he acted as I think he should, judging by content of character, not skin color or gender. But you guys are always making literally a federal case when any group doesn’t match the general U.S. demography. You all made fun of Romney with his “binders of women” and now Obama is doing much “worse” in the PC parlance.

So in this case I am on Obama’s side against the PC-liberalism that is destroying the concept of excellence in our country. But I expect Obama will cave to pressure and get some of those binders full or women and minorities.

“I agree that the president should seek those he thinks best, w/o regard to races, gender, creed or national origin. That is the American way.” Perhaps you didn’t read to the end of my three sentence initial post. You see, I support Obama against people like you.

Side note guys (and gals). I thought this was interesting…did you know that right now there are 57 wars/battles going on in different parts of the world? 54 of which are Islam vs. somebody else. The religion of peace…sure it is.

So it needs thicker stainless steel to make the ice cans and the requirement of design and craft will be higher.
