" a female senior aide to President Obama called the White House a hostile environment for women.
“This place would be in court for a hostile workplace,” former White House communications director Anita Dunn is quoted as saying.“Because it actually fit all of the classic legal requirements for a genuinely hostile workplace to women.”"
Comment?
Maybe it's true, but that's one woman who's a former employee. Would you accept her word for it if she'd worked for Bush and said this about HIS White House?

because Obama is a lying ass phony and the LSM doesn't give a crap now that Bush isn't president.
Our troops were sent to Iraq to get rid of a dictator, do we need to bring them back home to do the same.

Biden: Obama Might Use Executive Order to Deal With Guns
11:42 AM, Jan 9, 2013 • By DANIEL HALPER


Biden revealed that President Barack Obama might use an executive order to deal with guns.

"The president is going to act," said Biden, giving some comments to the press before a meeting with victims of gun violence. "There are executives orders, there's executive action that can be taken. We haven't decided what that is yet. But we're compiling it all with the help of the attorney general and the rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action that we believe is required."
It is clear Obama wants blood in the streets. It is also clear why he bought millions of hollow point rounds.

"Don't Want Answers from Lord Obama Syndrome" lapsing into overdrive. You Obama Zombies are pathetically stupid and docile. You'd eat spoonfuls of Obama's sh*t and tell us it was chocolate.
