Obama must be racist to his own kind.
His appointments should have been at least 33% black, 33% Latino and 33% gay. Leave the rest for white men.

It's getting hard not to notice all the president's -- white -- men.

After running a campaign that highlighted its appeal among women and diversity in the party, President Obama is starting to take some flak for the common thread among his initial nominees for second-term openings.

From John Kerry for secretary of state to Jack Lew for secretary of the Treasury to Chuck Hagel for defense secretary to John Brennan for CIA director -- all are white men.

Those four marked just the first round of second-term nominations. But on Thursday, Democratic New York Rep. Charlie Rangel called the lack of diversity "embarrassing as hell."

It is a president's job to put into place people who are best qualified and capable to handle their job responsibilities. I don't think appointing the racist black man Eric Holder worked out too well for Obama. His new appointments show that he isn't completely incompetent.
