Obama fills his administration with white males
Obama Chapter 2 is off to an interesting start:
1) We just saw renewal of the Bush anti-terror policies, from GITMO to wiretapping to rendition jails; and,
2) The Oval Office looks like a GOP men's meeting. I say so because we've been hearing for a year that the GOP is a party of white men.
Press Secretary responded to a question about the White House staff by saying that they look for "qualifications" not gender.
OK, I like Carney's answer. Hiring should be about qualifications rather than gender. However, the hypocrisy and silence of the left is incredible.
Close you eyes and imagine that Mitt Romney had just announced his White House staff. What would the Democrats & left be saying if we saw a picture of President elect Romney surrounded by a bunch of white guys?
Would the White House press corps quietly accept the explanation that we look for qualifications rather than diversity?
We are living in interesting times, or better put, very hypocritical times.
The American left has gone into "mute mode" now that their guy is going around Congress (the dreamers), starting wars without Congress (Libya), holding terrorists at CIA secret jails, and killing innocent people with drones.
The American left, and their friends in Europe, don't remind us anymore that GITMO recruits terrorists or that we are "shredding" the Constitution by wiretapping suspected terrorists.
Where is that spokeswoman from the Pink Ladies? We really need you these days! We need someone in the left to show the world that there is intellectual honesty on their side.
