Not knowing who the Very Emotional MALE Boehner is not surprising since you also have no knowledge of history or women's contribution to it, whatsoever.
Nor do you know that male politicians are backstabbing, argumentative,whiny people...again...you sound very..well young...




Because from your description of women you must not have much experience in the real world where PEOPLE are all different.

And even so, why couldn't you address the questions?

No"emotional touchy feely BS" like REPUBLICAN Boehner blubbering like a baby every two minutes???? Ya, I agree, that IS disgusting!

""""and if she started appointed mostly female advisors, well, you know nothings going to get done""""


So, a male president doesn't get anything done because most of HIS advisors are the same sex?
Women don't get things done? Wanna bet!


Have you checked out all the females who have been elected to public office? Do they all have all female staffs? How do they get things done?

The right person for the job can be of either gender, I'm so tired of these idiotic sexist posts making huge generalizations about women, or men.

Presidents dont get anything done because they're either (a) indecisive idiots or (b) Democrats and Republicans are too busy fighting one another to do a damn thing to help get things done. POTUS cant, and doesnt, do everything themselves.
Option b any president will be subjected to, male or female.
Admittedly, no. Unless they make the news for getting shot or resigning the governorship of Alaska, I pay little attention to who these people are outside of my own state's elected officials unless its election time and they're running for something that effects me.

By the way, I DO have a great deal of knowledge of history, and there are a quite a few females in said history I admire. Only one of them is living. Dont presume to tell me what I know and what I dont when nothing of the sort has been mentioned in the thread itself.

No, but they are influenced by people of the other party, so knowledge of who the Speaker of the House is can be very important...unless you lump all speakers of the House in one large group like you do women.





"""Option b any president will be subjected to, male or female."""


Right here you flip flop and say it doesn't make any difference what sex the President is...??? Yet you demand more from a female candidate....""female candidate would have to make a BIG impression on me to get my vote.""




"""Admittedly, no. Unless they make the news for getting shot or resigning the governorship of Alaska, I pay little attention to who these people are outside of my own state's elected officials unless its election time and they're running for something that effects me.

Oh? But you declared your ignorance of women with your statement:"" Females in a group are the most backstabbing, arguementative, whiny people to work with. Nothing ever gets done when I get stuck in a group full of women""

You based your sexist opinion on your small experience indicating you did NOT know history and women's contributions to it....if you truly knew history AND women you'd know how ridiculous that sexist narrow minded view of women is.


Here's a question you missed:

Have you checked out all the females who have been elected to public office? Do they all have all female staffs? How do they get things done ?

Are you female? Have you been subjected to those behaviors when in a group of nothing but females? The dynamic is different when there is a male or two in the mix. I am, and I have, so many times that I am to the point I dont even like working with many other women.You get alot of high-powered women in one group, and eventually it wont matter they're on the same team, the power-plays will ensue, making them no better than a male group.


To answer your question, AGAIN, no, I dont. I dont pay attention to them unless one gets shot or another resigns the governorship of a state.
Something major has to happen or be going on for me to give a damn about any politician.
If they dont belong to my state, I dont care.

And why should they be? They are human,too, and come in a variety of personalities, attitudes, ambitions, morals, intelligence, dispositions...they have NO responsibility to be BETTER THAN men...have you ever considered it isn't THEM who have a problem...????

Then whether a candidate for president is male or female doesn't matter to you....although you did say a female would have to meet your high standards(???)

I agree. I won't vote for anyone who I don't agree with on fundamental issues. Having a female president or a minority president is a very welcome bonus that I hope for someday, but he/she has to not only stand for what I believe in, but stick to those beliefs. God forbid a nutcase like Palin won. All of the sexist morons would use the disaster of her presidency to argue against any future female presidents. Just like the people who are disappointed with Obama are attributing his presidency to his race and not to his person.

Why?

Unless you plan on having sex with a President what difference would it make what their sex is???

I'd vote for plenty of women to be president and already voted for a female vice president. My vote has zero to do with gender. Maybe if Hillary had practiced this she'd be potus today.
