Have we all lost our collective minds? President Obama offers a kind compliment to attractive California Attorney General, Kamala Harris, someone he knows very well and the country is up in arms. He called Ms Harris “the best-looking attorney general in the country.” Responding to the President’s, comment, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said, “They are old friends and good friends, and he did not want in any way to diminish the attorney general’s professional accomplishments and her capabilities,” Carney continued, “He fully recognizes the challenge women continue to face in the workplace and that they should not be judged based on appearance.” This is the problem with political correctness. Why can’t we celebrate the fact that an attractive woman can also be intelligent. One has to watch everything he or she says in an effort not to offend anyone, even when unintended? All the President did was compliment the Miss Harris. If we are to ever truly experience equality in this country and in this world, we must stop being over sensitive to comments that are clearly benign. President Obama was in no way attempting to be condescending or attempting to lessen her importance as California Attorney General when he complimented Harris. One might actually say he was being a gentleman. Is the term gentleman also unacceptable by the political correctness police? Are men rude or out of line if they attempt to hold open the door for a woman? Have we become a country of crazies who have gone from one extreme to the other? Are we attempting to change or deny the fact that there are differences between men and women? Rather than be offended, we should celebrate those differences while recognizing and celebrating our accomplishes. Those of us who are dumbfounded by the stupidity of the new order, refuse to play by their rules. Free speech is free speech and the President should have defended his position rather than apologize for it. Let’s start dealing with important issues such as unemployment, the national debt, immigration reform and child abuse and leave the trite nonsense where it belongs, in the tabloids.
Hey there! I realize this is kind of off-topic but I had to ask. Does running a well-established blog like yours take a massive amount work? I’m completely new to blogging however I do write in my diary every day. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!
Good Afternoon, I have been writing my blog for almost one year. I started as a Judo and Jujitsu website as I am a 4th degree black belt. But it soon evolved into much more as I realized I had much to say. For example, I have written a number of articles on bullying; a topic I understand better than most. It does take a lot of time and is especially difficult when I travel. But it is a labor of love. I write at least one story per day and as many as five but those days are few and far between. WordPress is an excellent way to get started. Good luck.
