Crisis over: Obama apologizes to California AG for saying that she’s good-looking

posted at 6:41 pm on April 5, 2013 by Allahpundit

I was worried we might reach the weekend without Obama fake-atoning for something he didn’t realize was a problem a day earlier, but now we can rest easy and look forward to the next “crisis.” Kamala Harris is ambitious and beloved by liberals; if Feinstein retires, she’s a strong contender to replace her in the Senate. Assuming she does, how long will it be before Harry Reid inevitably makes a “who’s hotter” comment between her and Gillibrand? Over/under is two months.

Don’t close the book on this dumb story until you’ve read the Washington Free Beacon’s merry round-up of the feminist-in-chief’s greatest hits. And pay attention at the end here as Carney dances around the question of whether O’s remark was sexist. If it wasn’t, how come he never compliments male legislators on their looks? Good lord, John Thune’s been waiting for the presidential seal of approval for ages.

Exit quotation via … Rob Lowe?

Crisis over: Obama apologizes to California AG for saying that she’s good-looking

Funny how this happened right after Michelle Obama claimed she was a single working mother? Coincidence? I think not…

SWalker on April 5, 2013 at 6:44 PM

I’ve always wondered what Rob Lowe had to say about this.

SparkPlug on April 5, 2013 at 6:45 PM

This is why I love being a conservative. We can still call hot women hot. And what is it with liberals thinking if you compliment a woman on her looks it somehow voids any of their talents, intellect, etc?

ThePrez on April 5, 2013 at 6:45 PM

It is a sad day for America when even the President is cowedelected by the P.C. Police.

DeweyWins on April 5, 2013 at 6:45 PM

How odd that Rob Lowe thinks it’s sad that Bark is cowed by the PC police…. when has this so-called potus ever been concerned about PC?

What I’m reading in all of this is that Barf wishes he had chosen a better beard.

Cody1991 on April 5, 2013 at 6:46 PM

“Sorry….bad choice of words, hon, now go make me a sammich”.

I think the White House doctor should check to see if he has testicles. If so they must be in Moochelle’s lock box.

I’m sure she was clean and articulate too.

SouthernRoots on April 5, 2013 at 6:51 PM

No need to apologize. She’s not that good looking anyway.

Oh come on Allahpundit… EVERYBODY knows that when a gay man comments on how hot a woman looks it isn’t a sexist comment… Jay isn’t dancing, he’s genuinely flabbergasted that anyone could possibly not know that.

SWalker on April 5, 2013 at 6:52 PM

…he’s gay…so what?

Really. As if no one ever noticed. And such a prissy, petulant one at that.

Non-partisan’s apology to Hot Air should come any moment now…

Chuck Schick on April 5, 2013 at 7:02 PM

When Obongo said “she’s beyootiful… just like the First Linebacker Lady” there was no doubt an apology would soon be forthcoming.

viking01 on April 5, 2013 at 7:09 PM

So … was Michelle’s slip about being a ‘single mother’ and Barrack’s lusty remark a glimpse into the Obamas’ personal lives, or a diversion snare for something bigger than the jobs numbers?
Words do mean something.

kregg on April 5, 2013 at 7:15 PM

I’m sorry if anyone was offended by my comments.

Now can I get to my next vacation already?

Moochie’s single mother comment was the truth that slipped out. Obama saying some female is attractive is to divert you from the truth that he likes SNAUSAGES!!!!!!!!!!!!

GhoulAid on April 5, 2013 at 7:22 PM

Barry is gay – he obviously thought that Harris was a pre-op trannie – he discovered that she is actually biologically female – he lost interest.

So, is that chick ugly now?

Schadenfreude on April 5, 2013 at 7:39 PM

SSSSSSSSSSOOOOOOOOOOO, this just raises the profile of the Progressive next-in-line to replace the aging Frisco gal MeinFeinStein?


And she might be hot, but if she’s a lib she’s an angry shrew underneath that veneer of beauty.

PappyD61 on April 5, 2013 at 7:48 PM

He only likes angry black woman with a pelosi soul

crosshugger on April 5, 2013 at 7:48 PM

Really?

I (and millions of other Americans) want to know —

where in the HE!! ARE THE JOBS???

What happened to “THE JOBS”?

And, where is the media on this? Asleep? Too busy counting rebounds (as if there are any)?

WHERE?

jersey taxpayer on April 5, 2013 at 7:55 PM

Rome…

jimver on April 5, 2013 at 7:31 PM

Wow. Did Rome become pansies?

Saying that someone is the best looking state AG has to be faint praise.

The pop culture (exemplified by Dennis Leary in the tome Why We Suck) loved Dear Leader’s candor about drugs, race relations and etc.

Now he is permitted to find only one woman attractive.

This is a really interesting development.

What? She’s not pretty? Is he implying that she’s ugly? That’s not very nice. What an insensitive bastige.

Oldnuke on April 5, 2013 at 8:10 PM

Yes, the comment was sexist. No, I don’t really care. Doesn’t affect the quality of my life one iota.

I have seen a number of photos of the Calif. AG. She reminds me of Kristin Powers in that she can look pretty hot or not so hot depanding on how she is made up. Personally I think Pam Bondi, the Florida AG, is hotter.

Tact is not Obama’s strong suit.

Heck it isn’t even his underwear.

Obama is so full of himself, this was sweet.

He should have known if they could make a big shot like Brent Musburger bow down, a sniveling worm like Obama had no chance.

did Mooch notice that?

What the hell is he apologizing for? Had he said she is not that good looking then he would have something to apologize for.

tommer74 on April 5, 2013 at 11:09 PM

Freakin’ teleprompter.

joeeddie on April 5, 2013 at 11:42 PM

A perfectly harmless comment that’s completely overblown. AP should be on Obama’s side. Why do we have to change everything that’s natural, civil, and gracious in our society — including marriage only between one man and one woman (why are we even discussing this!!?? gay marriage is simply bizarre) — just because the let’s-change-everything-from-the-1950s crowd tells us to.

The only interesting question about Obama’s remark: would he have made it if she looked like one of Tiger Woods’s girlfriends?

Anyone remember that quaint word, mostly fallen into disuse, from the militant feminist PC playbook of the late 60′s…”objectification”?

Made me chuckle.

What goes around, “sweetie,” comes back around.

marybel on April 6, 2013 at 9:03 AM

Obama, vulgar and stupid, a genuine dumb ass. Therefore and still, a hero of the media and LittleLeftists in what ever moral & intellectual slum they may be found.

arand on April 6, 2013 at 10:01 AM

What a country. With all the problems in the world, this is what the MSM cares about.

celticdefender on April 6, 2013 at 10:16 AM

My take is that Obama’s comment shows his simmering, latent, racism and deep hatred of the evil, white Republicans! Pam Bondi, the AG of Florida is much more accomplished and by far better looking!

He really just meant she was a handsome woman.
