Another day, another onslaught of lefty outrage. Liberals are feverishly brandishing their sexism cards over the news that the proposed chairs for GOP Congressional committees happen to be white men:
But while lefties are breathlessly crying racism and sexism at the GOP, they’ve managed to overlook one tiny little detail: almost all of Obama’s top advisers are white males.
Of what are arguably the ten top most important White House advisers, only one – Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett – is a woman. Jarrett is also African American.
But the other nine are each white men: Vice President Joe Biden; Senior Advisor David Plouffe; Chief of Staff Jack Lew; National Security Advisor Tom Donilon; Counselor to the President Pete Rouse; National Economic Council Director Gene Sperling; Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer; Acting OMB Director Jeffrey Zients; and Press Secretary Jay Carney.
White House Dossier’s Keith Koffler also points out that if the scope of the diversity lens is widened to include Obama’s top 24 close advisers, women make up less than a third of the total, and all but two of the remaining men are white. Hmmm … diversity for thee, but not for me? Sure looks that way.
Conservatives quickly called libs and President Lady Parts out on their hypocrisy:
Heh. Perhaps President Obama could get some advice on hiring women from Mitt Romney at tomorrow’s lunch summit.
