We all remember the endless comments and spin that the Democrats were the party to protect women’s rights, the party for women, they went on and on about a supposed “war on women” and the insane comments about Romney’s “binders of women” comment. I don’t know about you, but I keep many lists and a lot of important information in binders – evidently the left need a trip to Staples or Office Max to learn about this awesome organizational product that has been around for a very long time. But I digress….
When I was in high school – I remember in Government class when we needed to pick qualified and diverse people to nominate for the cabinet positions. Funny that still sticks in my mind – but it proved why its important and how much thought goes into filling the positions – without just picking people that are close by or your cronies that feel you owe them something.
So – Obama and his spin team spend a lot of time and money to make people believe they had the best interest of women in mind. I don’t believe that for a minute and am wondering why that doesn’t translate into more women in important positions in his administration. There is Valerie Jarrett – but after her comments that anyone who was “against” them would have “hell to pay” — I really don’t count her as being on the side of any of us.
It seems the administration didn’t see a problem with Obama’s latest nominations in this picture
Once people started to complain – they released this picture
Seems to me that the most important thing is nominating the person for the job – regardless of race, gender, etc. Best for the job to me – means the best qualifications and experience for the needs of the individual job. I don’t feel we got that in the president we have —- but would be to the advantage of the American people to have qualified people in the cabinet and the other advisors for the president AND who will defend the Constitution.
