War on diversity! Obama taps all white male candidates for key positions


Heh. Well, Matt Yglesias jumps right in!

With neither Rice nor Flournoy, Obama cabinet looking a little light on women unless there’s a surprise Lael Brainard pick.

Others are noticing that President Obama seems to think girls drool and boys rule.

“@ap: Brennan, a CIA veteran currently Obama’s top counterterrorism adviser: apne.ws/UvkXhj -RAS” Noms not going so well 4 women.

To review: Obama to nominate 3 old white guys who supported/voted for Iraq & DADT to top foreign policy cabinet slots. #Forward(ish)

Sexist and racist! Plus, Bush.

If only President Obama had some cooties spray so he could open up one of those handy binders full of women.

Someone has misplaced the binders full of women. Obama Picks #Brennan for CIA. Hagel’s nomination Monday. ow.ly/gAWlU

Obama does have another kind of binder, though.

Libs mocked #Romney 4 wanting”binders full of women”2 fill his cabinet positions.Obama must hav asked for “binders full of idiots”2 fill his

Seriously, it seems as if Obama finds the least qualified or just generally worst people possible to nominate for his cabinet. #tcot

Will the lapdog media yelp over this latest act of war on women and diversity?

“Obama keeps nominating older, rich white men to new Cabinet posts. What a racist, sexist, bigot!” #thingsthemediawillneversayaboutaDemocrat

Paging Brian Williams! Remember, he asked Romney if he wanted an “incredibly boring white guy” as vice president.

And these Twitter users remind us of another act of war on women in Obama’s administration.

In the Obama presidential campaign staff women earned 5.3% less than male staff. In the WH staff women earn 18% less than male staff

#Obama continues to disregard women aside from speeches as Advisers are still all male & WH pays women 18% less freebeacon.com/white-house-wa… #tcot

@strongamerican @2009superglide talk is cheap. Meanwhile women in Obama WH make 18% less than men. Facts are hard.
