    If someone on the other side did this, we'd fucking eat their lunch for them.

    But since its Obama we're supposed to laugh along?  Im not saying he meant anying insulting by it, but still.... the man knows better.

    I'm not the President but if I introduced someone at a corporate meeting like this I'd have my ass handed to me.

    If Reince Preibus said this at the RNC it would have been front fucking page here, and god forbid Romney did it at a campaign event.

    Be fair people.  He's the President and he's Obama but he can still say some bone-headedly stupid shit every now and then.n  He should own it.

      it wouldn't be meant the same way.  See, some people are post-sexism and the political party they support is a pretty fair indicator of that.  O doesn't worry about making a remark such as this because he's not a sexist, where the guy who was talking about 'wetbacks' the other day was making a bigotted remark because he is actually a (subconsciously at least) a bigot.

    •  UPDATE: He did own it and apologized. (0+ / 0-)

      But I think the point of the diary is that this is much ado about nothing.  Comparing it to a GOP comment is really out of context.  

      He was at a private event among friends and supporters of Kamala Harris.  I would think it's safe to say that she's admired by all in attendance for her accomplishments, yet at the same time they would probably all agree that the President is right, she's the best looking AG in the country.  Dumb, akward comment? Yes.  Worthy of Twitter-rage?  No.
