Barack Obama's pattern of dismissing women's contributions to real life situations has reared its head again. The latest controversy involves an african american Harvard College Professor/homeowner and a white policeman, and two unsung female heroes that were completely ignored by Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, and the White House.

Ironically, the people being taken off the bus and marginalized in this latest public imbroglio are neither the overemotional home owner, or the police person doing his job. The two people who have been marginalized regard GatesGate were, women!

According to Lucia Whalen, the woman who actually called 911 to report two men trying to barge into a home through a closed front door, she was first told about the suspicious break in by an elderly woman.
"I just saw it from a distance and this older woman was worried, thinking, 'Someone's been breaking in someone's house. They've been barging in.' "
Both women were BRAVE ENOUGH to witness (and yes, it takes bravery to witness a possible law breaking act that is occurring since you may be seen by the perpetratorssss) a possible break in, keep their cool, yet Lucia Whalen had to keep walking on by while observing the two potentially hostile creatures (edit note - the phrase "possibly hostile creatures" refers to anybody on the planet that one would feel justifiably fearful of approaching to ask a question).

THEN, at some strategic distance past the home that looked like it might be being unlawfully entered, Whalen had to CALL 911 to report what she saw.
The reward both ladies received courtesy of Barack Obama was to be ignored by Barack Obama. lol, maybe being ignored by Barack Obama IS A REWARD.
Barack Obama's first response to the original Crowley vs Gates issue was to create a racial divide where one DID NOT HAVE to exist. Naturally, Barack kisses and makes up with the men, and only the men! Men, Men, Men, Men, Men, manly Men, whooo hooo, hooo hooo hooo. Mennnnnnnnnnnn. (reference is the theme song from 2 1/2 men).

Our president attempts to show everybody how much of a peace maker he can be by inviting the TWO MEN to the White House so Barack Obama can solve a problem HE ESCALATED himself!

But were the women who called in the report invited to the white house? Nope.

"Well, we were going to invite them, but I was told that if we put aprons on them and had them serve us the beers that some people might think that was uncouth." (sarcasm alert).

Maybe timing is everything. Barack Obama was ridiculed for his throw to home plate before the All Star Game. His jeans were made fun of as well. In both instances, he was compared to a girl. Not that there's anything wrong with that. So imagine if Barack Obama had invited both women to the White House instead of the men.
You know what, it's STILL NOT A STRETCH OF THE IMAGINATION to imagine Barack Obama inviting the two ladies INSTEAD of the two men to the White House. Honoring people who care enough to get involved, even when they themselves may not have the physical strength to fend off two people behaving oddly, who could notice them looking and attack them, is HEROIC.
So much for the "taking personal responsibility and doing your part to help make your own neighborhood a better place" speech that Barack Obama likes to give in inner city areas about How to make your own neighborhood better by actively participating.
And where was Michelle Obama to step in and perhaps offer to host a meeting a the White House with these two very brave, and very caring ladies? (hint, hint alert).

If ever there was a time for clueless women who voted for Barack Obama rather than Hillary Clinton to be gently grabbed by the collar and mildly shaken by their fellow woman and asked WHY? WHY?, now may be that time.

What were you female OBOTS thinking?

HOW YOU CAN HELP! MAKE A sign and put it where others will see it. signs can be placed in a storefront window, a bulletin board at work, or a countertop. Raise curiosity and awareness about how Chase Bank is harming a LOT of of their BEST customers by making a sign.

Another great post, Alessandro.

I just sent out the links to this one and the BC/Dobbs post on Twitter. You might want to put Daily PUMA on Twitter to make it easier for us to follow your blog entries. A lot of PUMA blogs are putting their updates on Twitter now.

I just signed up DailyPUMA on Twitter.

However, I am not a texter. So, somehow I have to transmit DailyPUMA to Twitter???

Alessandro Machi said...

Oh, and thanks for the nice words. Isn't it Deja Vu all over again? Barack Obama and his buds enjoying a Bud? The woman who are the real heroes just left in the background.

You female AP writers, do something about this.

Nothing new re: BO ignoring the women around him, unfortunately.

Re: Twitter: I don't know for sure how the Twitter thing works with the blog updates, but I think you have to go on Twitter first and put an update there each time you have a current blog entry. And you can put a link back to your Twitter page on the blog itself so that people who visit your blog can click on the Twitter link, go to your Twitter page, and subscribe to your updates. So, you are manually updating Twitter, but we who subscribe to your Twitter updates get the info about your blog automatically.

This is from the Twitter Help FAQs:

Can I put my Twitter updates on my blog?

"Yep! Put a Twitter badge on your blog, website, MySpace... anything that accepts Javascript or HTML. You can even customize your Twitter badge to match!"

That's how I *think* it works ... Twitter updates are done manually by you.

And you are welcome, Alessandro! You are a good egg! :-)

Alessandro Machi said...


lol, speaking of being a good egg, which came first, the twitter or the blog article?

Am I generating the content on my blog, and then sending it to Twitter?

NYCgirl said...

Please do not take this as gospel, but I *think* it's like this:

You are generating the content on your blog, but you are not "sending" it to Twitter -- you are going over there yourself to your Daily PUMA Twitter page and putting the info on there. The "automatic" part goes in the other direction:

After you have added the Twitter "badge" to your blog (that's the link to Twitter), you write your blog entry, then go to your Twitter page and formulate a short message about your new blog post, and send it out manually. The blog will then automatically show the Twitter message. People who are reading your blog will see the Twitter link there. If they want to go to Twitter and subscribe to your updates, they can do that by clicking on the Twitter link on your blog. Subscribing (known as "following") will allow them to just read their own Twitter page and see what your new blog entries are about. If they then want to go to your blog and read them, they can do that. It's just advertisement on Twitter, basically.

The advantage is: People who read multiple blogs do not have to go to each blog to see what's new. They can just go to Twitter and read the blog summaries they are following there. In essence, you are actually providing a similar service here with Daily PUMA -- putting all of the blog updates in one place. Twitter would be doing that for your blog -- putting all of your updates on someone's Twitter page if they are subscribed to Daily PUMA. And then it is easier for people to spread the word about your blog around Twitter. My buddy Still4Hill puts her blog updates on Twitter, and she has many more readers as a result.

I *think* that's it! :-)

I have been hitting this hard since 7/27- not that many are responding yet- let's just keep plugging and maybe we will get through - women are still shaken- they need to learn to trust their own instincts again - Remember they have been bruised by their party - other women and women's groups . We need to regroups! TMU!

There is some code that has to be added to make the links actually work directly. I still haven't memorized the code so I keep a copy of it near my computer. Here are you links ready to go.

Thank you Alessandro - I will also link to your piece.

I just now found (five months later), that Roger Simon of Politico wrote an almost identical viewpoint as mine.

I had actually meant to publish mine the night before but I had too many other obligations to take care of.
Both were published so close in time to each other (I think Simon's beat mine by a few hours) that neither of us probably saw the other's column prior to writing theirs.

Here is Simon's piece. 3 Amigos get Suds: she gets scorn
