Waah! Eric Boehlert blames GOP ‘black woman’-revulsion for Obama’s war on diversity; Update: WH scrambles


As Twitchy reported, President Obama has had his laser-like focus on tapping white men for key positions. War on diversity! We questioned when Democrats would call him out on that. Well, like good little cheerleaders, they are instead spinning it to blame mean, old sexist and racist Rethuglicans. Enter Media Matters’ Eric Boehlert, of course.


He’s annoyed that even the Fish Wrap of Record kinda sorta noticed it. Even though, of course, they qualified it with “so far,” his picks are all white men and went on to swoon over the administration’s pats on the head for women.

Boehlert is, of course, referencing the lying liar who lies, Susan Rice. Here is a tip for you, Boehlert: Her utter incompetence and abject failure sunk her Secretary of State bid.


Bingo! The Left frantically tried to cry racism and sexism over the criticisms rightfully levied at Ms. Rice. Time to get some new lines, Left, and cut up your pitifully overused race card. You are just embarrassing yourselves now.

Boehlert then frantically tries to schmooze with MSNBC’s deplorable Chris Hayes.


Totally a bad thing. But still totally the GOP’s fault, huh, deluded one?


Because, racist! Hey, Senior Fellow Boehlert, why don’t you take a look at some of the repugnant hate aimed at Condoleezza Rice by the Left:

A couple of more reminders for the willfully ignorant Boehlert:



That’s right. But, binders full of women!

By the way, Senior Fellow Boehlert, do you know what really is racist and sexist? Blaming others for Susan Rice’s incompetence and President Obama’s failures. They can’t be held accountable for her own actions, right? Because how could the poor dears.

Update: Oh, dear! The White House is scrambling.


From the White House official website:


See, guys!

Lame, White House. Lame.

    Because Susan Rice was the only available qualified person of color of either sex in the entire universe for President Voldemort to nominate? No other choices anywhere? None? Call Mitt. He actually looked for qualified choices for his MA admin. I even think he organized their resumes in book form.

    Eric Boehlert can not find one thing wrong with his lord and master George Soros….

    To Eric and his type..working for a Nazi collaborator is fine…blocking a woman that lied about YouTube is not.

    Yep…this is the character and mental makeup of progressives…

  • Steve_J

    If he had stayed with Rice how does she not get approved in the Democrat controled Senate? Removing her fron consideration wouldn’t have anything to do with the fact she would have faced numerous and serious questions about Benghazi, would it?

    All right, who told him about our super mind control powers preventing Mr. Obama from thinking about black women on his cabinet?

    • Vennoye

      It does seem strange that he does not pick more women. You would think that someone as narcissistic as BO would love being “eye candy” to people around him each day……unless he thinks he is “eye candy” to everyone…male or female….

  • Fire and Adjust!

    And just who was it that tried to bribe a black pastor $150,000 to keep his mouth shut and NOT exercise his constitutional right to free speech?…………

  • Matt

    Makes perfect sense that white male republicans hate black woman – they hated Condoleesa Rice so much, they made her Secretary of State. Ignore the fact that Obama pretty much picked an old white male for the vast majority of his cabinet positions this time around…

  • rinodino

    Rice was the first canidate that the president put up this term, and Righites cried like somebody killed their mother, Kerry and Hager? Not as much window screaming, hmmm wonder why?…… Holder is in office, you guys bitch and moan, Van Jones, you guys wanted him out, the black lady that was in his cabinet that had to step down because Breibart complained about her, the supreme court Justice, Sotomayor, oh my GOD, i thought you righties were going to have a heart attack when he brought her on board, on and on and on I can continue…. you righties make more fuss about his minority appointments than you do the white people he puts into place, FACT…..

    • DreadPirateStarbucks

      Yeah the ill feelings about Eric Holder has NOTHING to do with his gun smuggling to Mexican drug cartels. And Van Jones, self proclaimed Communist. That’s not a big deal AT ALL. Hmmmm. ***facepalm***

      • rinodino

        AGAIN, you righties make more fuss about his minority appointments that his white appointments, why is that? Hmmmmmmmm

        • Slapweasel

          Yup. Nobody said anything about Hager. Keep making up story lines, amigo. That way, we can easily point to the liar.

          POLICY, not race or gender are the driving force behind speaking out.

          Keep up your own race-based attacks. You stick out like a sore thumb.

          You ffking head up your a$$ leftards get absolutely hysterical over Republicans that are too dark though! Meet Mia Love, Condi Rice, Herman Cain, Allen West, Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal, Bob Parks and all the other “cornball” folks. See the difference is, Sock Puppet’s crew (and Socky himself) really all are little more than quota hires, praised and promoted for the color of their skin and not the content of their character — or heads. They are NOBODIES. Little people, little minds, little to offer, and certainly NOTHING original to offer. Little parade floats, nothing more, ants in a hive mind.

        • ZoriahShepard

          Susan Rice is an incompetent liar and bad at her job. Eric Holder is an incompetent liar and really bad at his job. If you really think that had either of them been white males and made the same glaring errors that we wouldn’t be having a hissy fit then you are the race card caller. Idiots are idiots regardless of color and gender dumb-dumb.

          really?! are u a fucking maroon?! Hagel is a horrible pick, and Dems and Repubs will not vote to confirm. Many republicans don’t think Hagel is fit to be Secdef.

        • ProgTrog

          I think people said everything they needed to about Kerry when he ran for President. Has he morphed into a different person between then and now? No? Ok.

          Plenty has been said about Hagel. What you do,see, is pretend not to notice and then say “Oh,you racist righties,you didn’t say anything about Hagel!”.

          We’re well aware of your childish games. You’re wasting your time. There is no truth whatsoever to the claims you have made. You probably realize this yourself. I hope you realize that in trying to conflate reality with fantasy, you make it harder for anyone to find any genuine solutions.

    the paranoia on the left, and their ‘blame everyone but myself’ mentality is a direct result of the ‘ME’ mentality of today’s culture. We have bred a bunch of spoiled rotten BRATS who whine at every turn, and offer nothing to the conversation but finger pointing and cries of racism.

  • michael s

    I guess people forgot the racist belittling then NSA head Condoleeza Rice got from white Democratic senators boxer and byrd during her hearings for Sec of state. Unfortunately as black ladies Condoleeza and Susan have to face racism.

    • NachoCheese (D)

      “Democratic senators boxer and byrd”

      But but but they’re Democrats, they couldn’t possibly be racist!

      Also, Condoleeza Rice and Susan Rice are not even in the same category. Susan Rice is a leftist shrill with zero qualifications for her current position, much less for Secretary of State.

      “If we use the word ‘genocide’ and are seen as doing nothing, what will be the effect on the November election?”

    Where do they come up with these arguments!

    The racist GOP brand is so damaged they will never win another election, BUT Obama is so intimidated by them that he appoints white guys! Huh?

    W is so stupid! He tricked me into voting for that Iraq War! Huh?

    W was only elected by GOP because of his father who was despised by GOP because of “read my lips”! Huh?

    Boehlert is probably onto something. A lot of white conservatives have a psychotic hatred of Michelle Obama, too.

      Is she still proud of her country, after $20M worth of Hawaii vacays?

      • sqeptiq

        Hawaii is Barack Obama’s home state and I have no problem with presidents and their families visiting their home states. I never begrudged George W. Bush his frequent trips to Texas; in fact, I was glad when he went on vacation, figuring he’d do less damage that way. Also, Hawaii is an American state, as American as any other. And I’m sure Michelle Obama is proud of the liberal America, as conservatives are proud of the conservative America.

        • NCRelite

          when a country is 16+ trillion in debt and the president takes multimillion dollar vacations it’s embarassing. to put things in perspective he and michelle cost the taxpayers far more than the royalty costs the britons

        • michael s

          don’t you get it a presidential perk afforded every other presidential family,shouldn’t exist with this president. also don’t you love how 20mil in taxpayer dollars is more valuable than oh lets see 3 billion dollars of ENTITLEMENT money yearly given to israel.

          • ProgTrog

            So every other president has run up vacation bills that are 4 times what the average American makes in a lifetime?

            Well, how childish of me to oppose Mr. Obama’s seemingly extravagant expenditures!

            Of course Mr. Obama’s family should be able to spend millions of dollars on non-tangible things while millions of Americans can’t even find a job and get to watch their families starve to death! It makes perfect sense now!

        • GTFOBigGovt

          No it’s not. Illinois is his home state. Being born in Hawaii has nothing o do with “going home for vacation”. His legal home was Chicago when he got elected.

    • ProgTrog

      That’s ok, Michelle Obama has a psychotic hatred of parents feeding their children food that’s at least as good as what our prisoners in this country eat,so it evens out.

  • DANEgerus

    Oh… and Republicans forced Rice to argue for ignoring the African embassy bombings as ‘provocative’ so yeah… Susan Rice’s entire idiotic career isn’t based on her skin color overcoming her rank stupidity… it’s the Republicans fault. And… Obama still pays women less.

  • dwsmokin

    So, let me get this straight-a small group of Republicans-who control only the House-have managed to strong arm the Democrat controlled Senate, as well as a 2nd term Democratic President, and force him to exclude black women from his cabinet? Are you serious? If this were a book-it wouldn’t sell! It’s too unbelievable. If he seriously believes this, he should take advantage of his “free” Obama healthcare and see a good shrink. This gets more incredulous every day.
