Democrat Rep. Charlie Rangel Calls Out Barack Obama on Lack of Diversity … Where Are the Woman that they Criticized Romney For? (VIDEO)
Just another double standard: When a Republican President picks the best candidates, they are racists and sexists … but when Barack Obama does the same, he’s just finding the very best person for the job.
Remember when Barack Obama, Democrats and the complicit liberal MSM accused GOP presidential candidate of having a war on woman and the foolish “binder” comments? It would seem that Obama has his own issues of diversity and a lack of presence of woman in his White House. US Rep Charles Rangel (D-NY) called out Obama and called it “embarrassing as hell” and stated that he could have “a Harvard problem”. OUCH!!! Isn’t that interesting that Rangel just called Obama an elitist.
“it could be the Harvard problem where people just know each other,
trust each other and women and minorities don’t get a chance to rub elbows and their reputations and experience is not known.”
Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) on Thursday called it “embarrassing as hell” that President Barack Obama is facing charges that his White House lacks diversity.
“It’s embarrassing as hell. We’ve been through all of this with [2012 GOP presidential nominee] Mitt Romney. And we were very hard with Mitt Romney with the women binder and a variety of things,” Rangel said on MSNBC. “And I kind of think there’s no excuse with the second term.”
The Obama administration has been criticized recently for not having enough diversity with its Cabinet appointees after The New York Times ran a photo of Obama meeting with senior advisers in the Oval Office, the vast majority of them white men. The White House responded by releasing its own photo, which showed a much more diverse crowd of Obama’s top advisers.
“The president values diversity, believes it’s important, because it enhances the quality of the pool of potential nominees for positions across the administration,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said at briefing Tuesday. “He believes that by looking broadly for candidates for offices that [it] ups the chances he’ll find the very best person for the job.
Isn’t this just typical, Obama and his reelection team went after GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and accused the Republican party of a war on women, yet Obama seems to have his own issue with a lack of woman in his White House … but that is perfectly ok and explainable. The hypocrisy is astounding.
