President Obama, who made women’s issues a key tenet of his reelection campaign, seems to be fading fast on that front in his second term as he nominates various people to serve in his cabinet.

So far, he has only appointed men to serve in three of his most prominent national security positions — Sen. John Kerry for Secretary of State to replace Hillary Clinton; Chuck Hagel for Defense Secretary; and counterterrorism advisor John O. Brennan to head the CIA. Does he need to borrow one of Mitt Romney’s binders full of women? Blacks and Hispanics are also missing from his inner group. This is striking considering he was elected by majority support from women, black and Hispanic voters.

The moves have disappointed some supporters who said they fear, with Clinton’s departure, a paucity of females among Obama’s top advisers, particularly in the traditionally male-dominated field of defense and security.

The pattern is particularly striking for a president who was elected with majority support from women and racial minorities and focused heavily during his reelection campaign on women’s health concerns and equal pay in the workplace. Obama won 55 percent of the female vote to Republican rival Mitt Romney’s 44 percent.

Obama is committed to “finding the very best people for each job,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said Monday, when asked about the lack of women among the second-term appointments. “And that’s what he’s done today, and that’s what he’ll continue to do.” Source

BARACK OBAMA IS BACK……

President Obama won the second presidential debate at Hofstra University decisively and the performance was strong. Mitt Romney has Gerald Ford moment when he said the morning after the attacks on the U.S. consulate on Libya he didn’t call it a terror attack but went off on fundraising stops. Candy Crowley had to fact-check Mitt Romney mid-debate, saying that he did mention terrorism in his statement in the Rose Garden.

Romney tried to bully Candy Crowley and it backfired in a big way. She, like Martha Raddatz, did a superb job. Romney’s facts just don’t add up and I am glad President Obama pointed them out decisively. Romney also made a huge miscalculation when he talked about being for the 100 percent in his closing argument. Obama scored a knock-out when he ended by slamming Mitt Romney for his 47 percent insult.

Mitt Romney was very condescending and rude to Candy Crowley and as a woman, I find it appalling and shows him to be the bully that cut his classmate’s hair. In closing, what are “binders full of women?” That comment was made by Mitt Romney and it is trending on Twitter. President Obama turned it around!
