• Pandering Ex-President: Women Are ‘Indisputably Better than’ Men

    Surge Summary: Former President Barack Obama recently disclosed he believes the world would be better off if old men stepped out of leadership positions and were replaced by women.

    In a truly embarrassing surge of pandering, former president of the United States Barack Obama has declared his conclusion that women are better than men.

    Newser writes:

    Put women in charge of the world for a couple years? Barack Obama is convinced they’d make it a better place.

    “I’m absolutely confident that for two years if every nation on earth was run by women, you would see a significant improvement across the board on just about everything … living standards and outcomes,” he said at a leadership forum in Singapore, as quoted by the BBC.

    “Now women, I just want you to know; you are not perfect, but what I can say pretty indisputably is that you’re better than us [men].”

    When also asked whether he had any plans to re-enter the political realm, he responded his time in that arena had passed.

    “If you look at the world and look at the problems it’s usually old people, usually old men, not getting out of the way,” he said.

    His dismissal of possible future high office aspirations is a tad strange considering his comments about women sound like classic vote-trolling. Come and cast your ballot for me, all you gals! I think you’re superior to human beings like me!

    Another question: Is this a new revelation on his part? If not, how come he stood for office in the first place? If memory serves, a pretty well-known woman was vying for the presidency during his first run for that same position. Is it possible his gooey sentiments are just that – nice sounding balderdash, kissing up to the ladies among us?

    Does anyone think Barack Obama really – REALLY – believes women are, across the range, better than dudes?

    To his credit, the 58-year-old erstwhile Chief Executive did get one thing write: “womanhood” does not automatically confer perfection. Neither does “maleness”. Or “trans-genderness”. Or any mere, fallen “humanness”. No cohort of mortals is free from serious limitations and flaws.

    And few parts of life don’t need both women and men. It’s called complementarity: guys and gals do better when we work together; each side, if you will, contributing his/her part. It’s how the Creator designed us; designed life to operate best.

    Hearing the one-time Leader of the Free World schmoozing like this? Genuinely embarrassing.
