Quotes of the day

posted at 11:04 pm on June 30, 2010 by Allahpundit

If Bill Clinton was our first black president, as Toni Morrison once proclaimed, then Barack Obama may be our first woman president…

It isn’t that he isn’t “cowboy” enough, as others have suggested. Aren’t we done with that? It is that his approach is feminine in a normative sense. That is, we perceive and appraise him according to cultural expectations, and he’s not exactly causing anxiety in Alpha-maledom

Generally speaking, men and women communicate differently. Women tend to be coalition builders rather than mavericks (with the occasional rogue exception). While men seek ways to measure themselves against others, for reasons requiring no elaboration, women form circles and talk it out…

Granted, the century is young — and it shouldn’t surprise anyone that Obama’s rhetoric would simmer next to George W. Bush’s boil. But passivity in a leader is not a reassuring posture.

***
It’s hard to know where to begin. Does this mean that Hillary Clinton would not have been able to deal with the BP Oil crisis? Or that Hillary Clinton is better at speaking like a man that Obama (hello again MoDo!) Or that Obama is paying the price for speaking intelligently? Or that Joan Walsh was right, and this nation has been so infantalized by a combination of overreaching government policies and the media we really just crave a daddy who will tell us it’s all right. No grey area allowed.

Perhaps it’s that grey area that’s been causing the trouble all along. The grey area of empty coverage space needed to be filled. And the grey area of where Obama fits in the national storyline. At some point it will be easier to make a list of the things and people Obama hasn’t been compared to in the mediasphere’s continuing effort to pinpoint exactly who Obama is than it will be to comprise a list of the actual comparisons. In the meantime, it’s hard not to wonder if this column is a preview of what we can expect from Parker and Spitzer’s new CNN show…lord knows the world is dying to discover whether Eliot Spitzer thinks Obama is man enough. In the meantime I suppose we can be grateful that no Bambi references made it into this piece.

***
Two years ago – June 2008 – the press was still grappling with how Hillary Clinton had been portrayed in the press. Sarah Palin was still two months away, but mainstream figures were only just admitting that there *may* have been some sexism in the coverage of the first female contender for a presidential nomination. It took Katie Couric saying so in June 2008 to shake up the media enough to wonder, gee, are those dames nattering like a first wife outside probate court actually on to something? The case didn’t crack like a nut between the steel-plated thighs of a Hillary Nutcracker, but still – by now it’s pretty well accepted that those of us whining like so many nagging housewives were documenting something real. And if you don’t agree, you can go iron my shirt.

There’s a difference between a strong man and a strong woman. A weak man is not the equivalent of a strong woman, nor does he have the approach of a strong woman–he’s just a weak man. To say his approach is feminine makes a caricature of true femininity. (Cue Margaret Thatcher, a strong woman and a very feminine one as well).

INC on June 30, 2010 at 11:12 PM

And the grey area of where Obama fits in the national storyline

Well, that’s just it. Obama does NOT fit this country. The country was founded by men who believed in individual freedom and individual responsibility. Obama doesn’t believe in any thing like that. Obama believes in enslavement, and obedience.

Skandia Recluse on June 30, 2010 at 11:12 PM

I agree he’s the first completely estrogenized President. I blame Oprah, and he’s got her stamp all over him. I rue the day presidential candidates felt they had to do her show to appeal to her people. I can never have imagined Nixon or Reagan sitting down with her and grovelling like Republicans Bush and McCain did.

MeatHeadinCA on June 30, 2010 at 11:23 PM

I really don’t think Kathleen Parker knows what she’s talking about.

Women, inarguably, still are punished for failing to adhere to gender norms by acting “too masculine” or “not feminine enough.”

The problem is that today people are even more sexist than ever. Feminists themselves are the ones who defined strength as acting in a masculine manner. When they do so, they annoy and irritate people as they lose their femininity. Yet paradoxically, they despise the opposite sex and have done their best to trample masculinity out of men and boys. They’ve also despised their own sex and haven’t yet grasped the point that womanly strength exists and it is different from manly strength.

That second quote proves my point as well. And what’s with all the CAPS ALL OVER THE PLACE. IT MAKES HER LOOK HYSTERICAL!!! ;-)

Plugs probably is the most masculine person in that entire administration (had to rule out Rahm for obvious reasons).

Kathleen Parker is an idiot, our First Woman President will have bigger gnads than either Bill or Barack, and she’ll look good doing it, making our allies like us, and our enemies fear us that is.

God, I wish people would stop going on and on about his rhetorical style, as if he just needs to communicate better – “Obama, you need to show people you feel their pain.” “Obama, you need to be more of a national Daddy figure.”

Please. This guy has a real problem, and people like Parker are just enabling him. He is obsessed with the sound of his own voice, and insists on giving tiresome speech after tiresome speech. What he needs is an intervention – a group of people to tell him, “No, Mr. President. You’ve had one two many speeches. Time to lay off the teleprompter.” Maybe he should even go cold turkey for awhile.

His only rhetorical problem is that he won’t shut up and do his job.

Remember when that kid at some university wanted to debate Obama? Yeah, well, Obama would have lost (woman or not).

MeatHeadinCA on June 30, 2010 at 11:48 PM

It is that his approach is feminine in a normative sense. That is, we perceive and appraise him according to cultural expectations, and he’s not exactly causing anxiety in Alpha-maledom.

By the way, can anyone tell me what the above quote even means?

Causing anxiety in Alpha-maledom? In which alpha males is he supposed to be causing anxiety? Anxiety about what? And what does that have to do with our cultural expectations?

I suppose maybe she means Obama is supposed to be scaring the other alpha-males, in order to assert his own alpha-maleness, but if so, she picked a very confusing way to say it.

Maybe Obama isn’t the only one who is obsessed with the sound of his own voice (or in this case, printed words).

RINO in Name Only on June 30, 2010 at 11:48 PM

There’s a difference between a strong man and a strong woman. A weak man is not the equivalent of a strong woman, nor does he have the approach of a strong woman–he’s just a weak man. To say his approach is feminine makes a caricature of true femininity. (Cue Margaret Thatcher, a strong woman and a very feminine one as well).

INC on June 30, 2010 at 11:12 PM

Good point. This view devalues women–a strong woman can never be *better* than a man, only a weak one. The problems with this view are ascribing second class status to women and the perpetual battle between the sexes. Why not drop the sexism and view individuals based on their own merits, regardless of gender & stereotypes? Perhaps that is too idealistic.

I caught Parker’s subtle dig too at a certain “Rogue” mavericky-type female.

Cue Narutopud or Jamesbo the law-talkin’ guy.

Whatever. Aren’t they busy eating some corn out of someone’s crap?

Causing anxiety in Alpha-maledom? In which alpha males is he supposed to be causing anxiety? Anxiety about what? And what does that have to do with our cultural expectations?

I didn’t get that either, but then again, I think that people that like to think of themselves as alphamales are probably more like sick-twisted epsilons.

can we blame the moodiness on menstruation?—although, the poor guy does live with his mother in law…I’m sure I’d be thinking about jumping off the roof about 12 times a day if I lived with my mother in law

These guys have obviously not seen Sarah Palin’s latest, hammering Obama on national security.

Just read it. Impressive.

Speaking of which, did sub-par-ker steal her idea from HS?

MeatHeadinCA on June 30, 2010 at 11:54 PM

What utter drivel.

I’m sorry. I’m confused. Which leftist are you referring to?

Or as I call her ‘Parallel Parker’.

BTW, I think this is the pic that would have been more appropriate for tonight’s post

There’s a difference between a strong man and a strong woman. A weak man is not the equivalent of a strong woman, nor does he have the approach of a strong woman–he’s just a weak man. To say his approach is feminine makes a caricature of true femininity. (Cue Margaret Thatcher, a strong woman and a very feminine one as well).

I agree, wholeheartedly. I, for one, am incensed that President Obama’s “leadership” is the kind that Maureen Dowd assigns to my sex.
