Oh, Well, If It's Just A Bad Habit...

To be a sexist pig, of COURSE we can just let it go!! I mean, really - it's not like it's demeaning to anyone or anything. Oh, wait - YES IT IS!!! No doubt, this will just be laughed off like everything else that has to do with how women are being treated by Obama and his ilk in this campaign. Anywho - here is his "apology" to the reporter, Peggy Agar, from the previously posted video:

"Hi Peggy. This is Barack Obama. I'm calling to apologize on two fronts. One was you didn't get your question answered and I apologize. I thought that we had set up interviews with all the local stations. I guess we got it with your station but you weren't the reporter that got the interview. And so, I broke my word. I apologize for that and I will make up for it. Second apology is for using the word 'sweetie.' That's a bad habit of mine. I do it sometimes with all kinds of people. I mean no disrespect and I am duly chastened on that front. Feel free to call me back. I expect that my press team will be happy to try to make it up to you whenever we are in Detroit next." (

See? He's not such a bad guy! He just has a nasty little habit of demeaning women!! What's the big deal already?!? Ahem. I tell you, Obama just reminds me more and more of George Bush. Remember when Bush made some comment to a reporter in Canada about her looks? Tell me how this is different. (Crickets) That's what I thought.

MEANWHILE - the Obama camp continues to expect the Mommy in the field to stand up for him, like she did in an incredibly classy way today regarding Bush's recent comments about Democrats (though he did NOT single out Obama by name, Obama seems to be the one taking offense. Clinton did not name him, either, but spoke for all Democrats). It really is amazing - Obama and his minions ALWAYS say Clinton should be defending him and standing up for him. Really?? Why??? Why in the world is she expected to defend Obama when he is constantly attacking her? Just today, after she spoke out, he compared her to BUSH!! What a stand up guy!! Cough, choke. But that is his MO - whine, whine, whine, attack, attack, attack. I sure don't recall him standing up to his own supporters, telling them not to boo Clinton. Nope, not once. Or standing up to the pundits who engage in misogynistic statements about her. Or to people like Rep. Cohen who essentially called her a psycho stalking woman. Or Kennedy, who claimed she didn't have leadership ability. Nary a word spoken by Obamassiah. Yet, there is the SEXIST expectation that she will protect him. And the problem is, Clinton is SUCH a staunch Democrat that she stands up for the Party, and that can mean standing up for her opposition. He then twists it around to say she is saying he is better qualified or what-have-you. More of the damned if she does, damned if she doesn't mentality. But what it says to many is that Obama is weak, and Clinton is one helluva classy woman. And she is. Leagues above Obama, IMHO. He could take a few lessons from her. In fact, the entire leadership (such as it is) could take some lessons from her. I admire her more every single day. Every single day she shows the stuff of which she is made.

We need this woman for our president.

Ya got that right! And it seems more and more people are having some Buyer's Remorse. Well, actually, they are starting to learn more about him, and not just the "Feel Good" slogans he has been touting!

And Clinton continues to shine. She has not claimed ONCE that she has visited 57 states, like Obama did, or repeat a story 10 minutes later, and she's 15 yrs OLDER than he is (you can just IMAGINE what the pundits would be saying if she or McCain HAD claimed there were 57 states - they would have been talking abt senility, Alzheimers, and on and on. But Barry? He's just tired - leave Barry alone!!). She is a fighter - just what we need in the White House!
