“Like as though the late Senator Daniel Inouye was any champion of women's suffrage and advancement beyond the glass ceiling. He exploited women and sexually abused them as well. Have you not read about this composite of Inouye since it all unfolded way back in 1992? It's all online if you google it. He obviously was not as concerned about having the need for a woman to replace him as much as the fact that she shares the same ethnic background as he. To confirm my charge, one need only read the many published posts on this very blog that document just how contentious Hawaii's Asians feel about a white male being selected by Governor Abercrombie over a Japanese American female. And in many of these posts, I've been around the block a few times to sense a hint of anti-semitism. Never mind that this white male, who is Jewish, is just as much a minority as they are; never mind that his people have suffered outright extermination when compared to their own.”

“Well, no. More like 75%. At 50 % their numbers are only, roughly representative of their cardinality in society in general (3 percent shy of the actual number). But at 75%, society effectively benefits from their better judgement, real compassion and, frankly, common sense. Please, don't stop at or settle for half.”

“Hillary also said in that same article: "You have one life to live. It is yours. Own it, claim it, live it, do the best you can with it." She's such an inspiration!!

It is also dismaying to see the same critics on the left of Hillary try to blow up efforts by anyone to help women get a leg up to the top, a subject she has always advocated for:

“You think? Hillary Clinton since young womanhood had a bevy of servants assisting her and her family. First as First Lady of Arkansas, then as First Lady of the US, then Senator and now Sec of State. It is easy fufilling one's life when there are hundred of servants to babysit, act as tutor, cook, clean and do the wash.

In her typically narcisstic behavior, Hillary doesn't even thank those that kept her she and her family healthy, wise and successful. She is a woman with little empathy and great ambition.”

“Can't imagine the barrage and its effect.

I hear D'Souza's film is running free on cable TV there without equal time being given to Dems.
Then add the fact that Tagg owns your voting machine maker, and the threatening letters going out to employees that they'll lose their jobs if Obama wins --- it's hard to feel like this is The U.S. of A. and not Iran or Venezuela any more.

Hang in there!
And if you want to sign a petition asking the US Atty General to investigate Tagg for election fraud, it's at:

Hope and Change for Romney

Commented May 12, 2012 at 08:16:16 in Politics

“People need to get used to seeing women run alot of things. The reason why women aren't is because of your reasoning------that only the perfect women are allowed to be at the top, but the imperfect men get a pass.

It is at that intersection that your argument goes off the rails for women. The cultural zeitgeist is that women aren't ever qualified enough or good enough. We know that that is sexist. Your argument feeds right into that mentality even though that is not what you intend. There must be another way for you to rethink your argument. You have stated throughout that branding you a sexist is completely misleading, and I believe you. There must be another way for you to rethink the argument.”

Know-some-secrets on May 12, 2012 at 10:31:54

“Interesting that like "womenmatter," you are a May 2012 first time poster on huffpo focused on this specific thread.

I have said time and again, I want effective leaders irrespective of gender. That seems to be what our nation and world need most. I don't support and I criticize many men in power who I feel are unqualfied or ineffective.

Why must I defend myself against charges of sexism and misogyny when I respond to a blog that promotes specific individuals as Vice Presidential candidates by saying that I find two of those individuals unqualified for higher leadership because of their intense support for war and use of military force while serving as Secretaries of State?

Your point seems to be that we must support any woman for leadership irrespective of her qualifications as long as women are under represented in leader or it is sexism and if we criticize a leader who is a woman it is misogyny. I reject that view and am alienated by it.”
