Ironic that Obama is being slammed for this comment when he's finally right on something.
Who authorized the release of this remark to the media? And who in the media authorized it to the public? Someone's gonna pay.
I don't see why commenting that a woman is attractive means she is not capable. He also called her brilliant, dedicated and tough I think some people just need to relax. I don't see this as sexist at all, get over it.
Really? If a person wanted to complain about Obama (or virtually any other public figure) you wouldn't have to look very hard to find something far more important than this. It is sad that this is even being discussed in the media.
oakes, that is as long as he's got the "d" behing his name. If it were a republican, you liberal hypocrites would be all over that person.
There's right, wrong, and then there is liberal ideology which menas you can determine what is acceptable.
Say, anyone know if Obama was pimping for dough in Stockton? They are doing well, and might have some extra cash to contribute to his efforts which are ondisplya again today in the new jobs data.
I'm a big Obama support but I was appalled at his statement. Would he have said the same thing if the AG was a man? Highly doubtful. If so, then he has no business saying it about a woman. End of story.
The people who interpret his comment as inferring that being good looking diminishes talent Are The Problem. How trite.
That's the risk you run when you attend a Democratic fundraiser.
Once more,Obama apologized. He apologized for all America and how we treeated other countries. Oh, wait. It's California? Well, that is third-world.
