Leaked Book Critiques Obama

A book about Obama’s White House paints picture of conflict

By Tara W. Merrigan
Zoe A. Y. Weinberg,
CRIMSON STAFF WRITERS
Monday, September 19, 2011


A tell-all book leaked over the weekend is stirring controversy due to its portrayal of the Obama White House during the financial crisis as rife with internal conflict and jockeying between economic bigwigs, including former Harvard President Lawrence H. Summers.

Many of those interviewed for the book have since denied quotes and rejected the narrative’s accuracy.

The book—written by former Wall Street Journal reporter Ron Suskind—is called “Confidence Men: Wall Street, Washington, and the Education of a President.”

Though it officially goes on sale Tuesday, several news organizations received copies of the book in advance.

Citing White House documents, the book claims that Obama’s decisions were often “relitigated” by Summers, who was chairman of the National Economic Council at the time.

“The administration’s domestic policy was fast becoming a debate society run by Larry Summers,” Suskind writes.

In the book Suskind wrote,“Enough was enough,[White House Chief of Staff] Rahm Emanuel decided ... He summoned the two competing super-egos, Summers and [budget director Peter] Orszag, and told them to make peace. After all, they were each responsible for huge swaths of the federal government. And they were fighting at every turn.”


- According to the book, Summers also questioned Obama’s leadership, saying to Orszag,“We’re home alone. There’s no adult in charge. Clinton would never have made these mistakes.”



- OUCH!-

Obama the Misogynist

The book also paints a picture of the White House as a boys’ club in which women were routinely ignored or left out, although some women interviewed now deny that portrayal.

Suskind writes,“‘The president has a real woman problem’ was the assessment of another high-ranking female official.‘The idea of the boys’ club being just Larry and Rahm isn’t fair. He [Obama] was just as responsible himself.’”

In Suskind’s book, former Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers Christina D. Romer is quoted as saying “I felt like a piece of meat” after being excluded by Summers at a meeting.

Romer allegedly also said to Harvard Law School Professor Elizabeth Warren—now a candidate for the U.S. Senate—that she felt women were forced to assert authority in the White House work environment.

“Why is it always the women?” Romer asked, according to Suskind’s book.“Why are we the only ones with the balls around here?”



No Balls Obama!

Women paid significantly less in Obama White House than their male counterparts

By Meghan Keneally
11 April 2012


All of President Barack Obama's employees may not be treated equally in the White House, as recently released financial records show that female employees earn significantly less than their male counterparts.

Using the 2011 annual report of White House staff salaries that was submitted to Congress, an $11,000 difference is clear between the median female employee salary and the median male employee salary.

This news comes on top of continued criticism- of both President Obama and prior presidents- that women are underrepresented in the White House.

Of the administration's 20 top earners, who each took home a tidy $172,200 for their work in 2011, only six of those were women.

The most oft-singled-out leading lady in the President's testosterone-fueled inner circle is Valerie Jarrett who is one of his closest advisors.

The gender differential has been noticed outside of the White walls, and Dee Dee Myers- the first female press secretary who worked under the Clinton administration- feels it is not doing Mr Obama's team any favors.

'Women are Obama’s base, and they don’t seem to have enough people who look like the base inside of their own inner circle,' Dee Dee Myers told The New York Times.

The hefty salaries, like Ms Jarrett's, were not the norm, however, as the median salary for women in the White House is $60,000 which is 18 per cent less than their male peers whose median salary was $71,000.

Gallup: Romney's lead among likely voters expands to six points

By Jonathan Easley
10/17/12

Mitt Romney picked up two points overnight among likely voters and now holds a 6-percentage point lead nationally over President Obama, according to Gallup’s daily tracking poll.

Romney takes 51 percent support against 45 percent for Obama in the Gallup poll of likely voters, and also leads 48 to 46 among registered voters.

The survey is a rolling seven-day average through Oct. 16 and does not include polling data taken after Tuesday night's debate in New York.

Gallup only began tracking likely voters earlier this month. The 6-point margin is Romney’s biggest lead yet in the survey, and comes less than three weeks before the election.

Real Clear Politics recently moved Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin from “lean Obama” to “toss-up”.

Other states, such as Iowa, Colorado and Ohio, are true toss-ups right now.

You wonder who inside the inner obama cocoon will get blamed for his defeat?

The narcissists obama surely cannot be to blame for the Misery all around. It was all Bush's fault before but now that he's president, it's someone else that's to blame!

What a creep!

I don't know what he will have to celebrate. The next debate is about Foreign policy. Something Obama knows little about. He looked so silly last night tryng to be offended because America thinks he is coward, and allowed Abassador Stevens to be brutally murdered. Now he wants Romney to not mention the Libyan massacre. Sorry, Obama has to answer for his mess. New Gallup poll after the Debate, Romney 51, Obam 45%. Guess Obama didn't win the debate after all. He can't overcome 6 points in 3 weeks.

Pollster pulls out of Fla., NC and Va., says Obama can’t win there

By Jonathan Easley
10/10/12

Suffolk University pollster David Paleologos, whose polls are aggregated into mainstream averages to show where the presidential race stands in the swing states, said he’s finished polling in Florida, North Carolina and Virginia because President Obama has no shot of winning those states.

“I think in places like North Carolina, Virginia and Florida, we’ve already painted those red, we’re not polling any of those states again,” Paleologos said Tuesday night on Fox’s "The O’Reilly Factor." “We’re focusing on the remaining states.”

Mitt Romney has spiked in the national polls since his first debate last week against President Obama. Romney took the lead over Obama nationally for the first time all year on Tuesday, according to the RealClearPolitics average of polls, although statistically the two are tied.


Florida is the largest swing-state prize, with 29 electoral votes.

The Bush years of horror come to mind every time I see Rmoney and Ryan. Today Condi-LIES-R-Us was at an event with Ryan. Bush's neocons are Willard's foreign affairs advisers. Rmoney is NO different than Bush on economic issues, and Willard is even worse than Bush on social issues because he just panders to the he-man women haters of the extreme religious nutcases!

In the VP debate Joe Biden said they only knew what the state dept. and the intelligence community told them and that it was the video tape. Yet Obama claimed he said it was a terror attack in the Rose Garden the next day.
Oh that crazy old Joe!

Obama is a dumbass. He fails at even simple math. He said he'd cut the deficit in half but Doubled it instead.


It's time to return that idiot back to his village.

Bill Clinton: Larry Summers And Bob Rubin Gave Me Lousy Advice About Derivatives

Henry Blodget
April 19, 2010

President Clinton was forthright on ABC's "This Week" yesterday when asked whether Larry Summers and Bob Rubin had given him bad advice about regulating derivatives (the advice was don't regulate them.)

Clinton accepted responsibility, but he also said the advice was lousy:

Joshua Zumbrun, Bloomberg:

“I think they were wrong and I think I was wrong to take” their advice, Clinton said on ABC’s “This Week” program.

Their argument was that derivatives didn’t need transparency because they were “expensive and sophisticated and only a handful of people will buy them and they don’t need any extra protection,” Clinton said.“The flaw in that argument was that first of all, sometimes people with a lot of money make stupid decisions and make it without transparency.”

“Even if less than 1 percent of the total investment community is involved in derivative exchanges, so much money was involved that if they went bad, they could affect 100 percent of the investments,” Clinton said.



Thanks for the Economic Collapse Bill, Larry and Bob!

Something comes to mind to many people and
it more recent than the Bush years.
What is happening to Obama, he is just getting
stranger. Usually he can hide his lies for the time hes saying them. Last night he didn't, should
have knowen that his words would be looked at
before the end of his words were out. He knew
he waited days, went the the view, the UN and
said the word "VIDEO" six (6) times..And these
were not the only times...Something is wrong,
does he need to see someone like a doctor.
Nothing hes saying adds up and can be proved untrue in a matter of minutes. You loyal dems,
better see about him soon. Hes got to
face the country in just another week...He may
just not show up. The press is checking out what
he says NOW. Can't you see hes not making sense.
Needs help...Hillary take the blame, and so does
Obama.....for what...What did they know and when
did they know it????Questions are pileing up and
the mistery is coming closer to him..What will
he say next time?

Former Obama voter speaks to women in new Romney ad


By Elise Viebeck
10/06/12


Mitt Romney's campaign has a released a new television ad featuring a woman who backs the GOP nominee after voting for President Obama in 2008.

The 30-second spot comes as new polls show Romney making gains in swing states after his much-applauded debate performance on Wednesday night.

The new ad shows a small-business owner, Melanie McNamara, speaking with remorse about her vote for Obama.

"I'm disappointed in Barack Obama as my president because he promised … that we're all going to be able to prosper," McNamara tells the camera. "I don't see the prospering."

The ad makes a bid for women voters by arguing that Romney will be better for the economy – an issue women care about, McNamara says, because "you think about your children."

In a slide of text, the ad states that "there are over 450,000 more unemployed women" since Obama took office, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

"What I want to think about is a future that has jobs, where our economy is growing again. That's important to women, and it's important to me," McNamara says.

McNamara is from North Carolina, a crucial swing-state, and this is not the first time her support for Romney has put her in the spotlight.

Romney and his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), visited her furniture company in August for a campaign rally and a major interview with Bob Schieffer of CBS.

Nobama's muslim buddies make women wear burka's, idiot.

Barack Obama doesn’t have a record to run on or a plan for the future. Under President Obama, we will have four more years like the last four years, with higher taxes, fewer jobs and less take-home pay.

When Mitt Romney is president, we will have pro-growth policies that reform our tax code, foster upward mobility, and deliver more jobs and more take-home pay.

For women, the choice is clear. Don’t wait until Election Day. Help make your choice a reality by making calls from home, knocking on doors and contributing to the campaign.
