RightChange: Obama’s Lack of Diverse Staff

It wasn’t that long ago when Barack Obama and Joe Biden wouldn’t shut up about how Mitt Romney would drag women’s rights back to the 1950’s, take away their suffrage, and how he pretty much was anti-women entirely. Of course, that was during the same time Obama had an administration packed full of men and paid them more than the women that were there. Fast-forward to his second term and nothing has changed.

From The New York Times:

“In the days since, Mr. Obama has put together a national security team dominated by men, with Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts nominated to succeed Hillary Rodham Clinton as the secretary of state, Chuck Hagel chosen to be the defense secretary and John O. Brennan nominated as the director of the Central Intelligence Agency. Given the leading contenders for other top jobs, including chief of staff and Treasury secretary, Mr. Obama’s inner circle will continue to be dominated by men well into his second term.”

From NBC:

“For starters, Susan Rice’s and Chuck Hagel’s potential nominations to top cabinet jobs were allowed to twist in the wind for weeks, with Rice eventually pulling out of consideration for secretary of state and Hagel now in real fight to win confirmation as defense secretary. In addition, the White House yesterday announced that Labor Secretary Hilda Solis was leaving the administration -- on the very day the New York Times ran a piece observing the lack of women in the administration.

And also yesterday, the White House said Attorney General Eric Holder, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, and Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shineski are staying in a second term, but it didn’t announce what’s happening with the other cabinet secretaries, which then set off mini-feeding frenzies “are you staying, are you going?” for the cabinet secretaries not included on this seemingly arbitrary list.”

Even the corrupt Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) thinks Obama’s lack of diversity is outrageous:

““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.”

We beg to differ with Rangel. What’s truly “embarrassing” about Obama as President is the entitlement state he has created, the bloated government he has grown, the more debt than all Presidents combined he has racked up, the taxes he has raised on every American, and the cover ups his administration have participated in to distract the American people from his lack of leadership. Packing his administration full of men while paying them less than women while accusing Romney of taking away women’s rights is just hypocritical. Let’s get it straight.
