Obama is a Politician. That does not excuse him but it does explain him.
That's their job.
They dissemble the truth. That's their job too.
Women, frankly, are far better at both which in a way is a much better arguement that feminists should use for getting more women in politics.
Also women are the majority by the time folk get to around 18. Bashing a minority is a no-no these days as most minorities have been issued with megaphones and public funds to 'gain a voice', so women are re-classified as a minority too and men re-classified as a majority (well, they started out that way with an over-supply of one year old baby boys; the little patriarchal bastards. And bastards most of them are these days) in accordance with the Political Statistics Handbook 22nd edition. That ensures that the majority voters' money goes to women and all the harsh words go to men.
And it fits neatly with precedent. The VAWA allocated billions to women, so they must be a minority. Stands to reason and neatness.
But it is in the Private sphere that attitudes get their impetus. Who re-decorates the White House every time a President moves in? Is there a urinal in the en-suite? How many shoes does Obama have? Does anyone count or care? Meanwhile every woman's magazine published excruciating detail of Mrs B.O.'s wardrobe, except her underwear drawer which apparantly is a State Secret. None of us, I am sure, wants the Taliban to get hold of that information.
And it has to be asked. A really hard question that blows all the statistics about 'hours' worked out of the water. Who decides on the floral arrangements for White House dinners? Ha ! It is Mrs, that's who. She will spend hours and hours simply choosing and making a decision. It is SHE who decides what will be in the canapes. It is SHE who will do a last minute inspection of the servants' uniforms and decide on the colour of their cravats.
All that extra work which even the Great BO will not shift his lazy black arse to do. All those decisions.
And, who wrote his speech for him while he was out playing basketball with ten year olds?
BO is a leader. We idle bastards follow.
(P.S: There is a hint of sarcasm in here. Did you spot it ?)
