THE NOT-SO "DIVERSE" OBAMA ADMINISTRATION
Bush was often touted by conservatives as one of the most diverse administrations in history. In fact it was, but it was never enough for democrats who often claim a sanctimonious monopoly in this societal demand. He had more women, Hispanics and blacks in his administration than any of his predecessors, and yet some were still unsatisfied. I had an argument with a friend once who was complaining about the lack of "Jews" in his government after having failed to recognize his racially diverse administration. Racial diversity was evident so it was on to another exclusionary complaint. Too bad Bush also had a diverse religious representation as well, and even a few atheists amid the posts. The left still whined. So why is it that Obama the most "diverse" President in history does not particularly have a diverse administration? I ask this question because, I hear no outrage. Where are the "diversity" police? Is he exempt because he himself is black so the litmus is not needed? This baffles me. I don't ride the diversity bus. I could care less who is and is not included. That probably sounds like your "typical" conservative but I think the welcoming cries of liberalism are disingenuous and puritanical. They only pretend to be inclusive so they can obtain minority support and when their big cheese forgets to diverse-out his cabinet, they conveniently disappear. Certainly Obama can find other cabinet members of color other than, washed-up white has-been democrats who "forget" to pay their taxes. Cry me a river, the only change that has happened so far is that the government has gotten more white. Put that in your culturally diverse pipe and smoke it democrats. Your magic bus is filled with rich white people whom you despise. So sad that your cultural outreach program is failing miserably in Washington DC. Perhaps a "diversity day" in the nations capitol will change Obama's narrow-minded representation. You know I wouldn't bring this up if you weren't so hypocritical. Exposed, again. This is just way too easy.
