Peggy Agar wanted an answer not "sweetie"

At the bottom of the whole Sweetie contoversy, the reporter at the heart of it all was more disappointed that Barack Obama blew her off in not answering her question than she was the Sweetie bit.

However, some are taking issue with the reference since there is a belief that Obama is not respectful of women, in part due to statements made in the past like, "taking out the claws," "when she's feeling down," and "throwing the China." That's been an issue for several months and it's not gone away.

For those that think "sweetie" is a non-story? Well calling Obama boy sure seemed to set off a fire storm and created an apology...

So I guess the moral of the story? Selective outrage and hypocrisy rules the day and just as in this situation the reporter did not get her question answered, the real point to what Rep. Geoff Davis was referring to about a "highly classified, national security simulation" with Obama never got addressed by the media either...

I can picture it now...

To Queen Elizabeth II: "Nice tiara, Sweetie"

To Margaret Thatcher: "Yeah, Sweetie, you were a great Prime Minister"

To Nancy Pelosi: "Hey you're rockin' that Speaker of the House position, Sweetie"

I'm guilty of calling people sweetie, so I can't be all hypocritical but I do know that there is a time and a place for such endearments/phraseology.

For me the larger issue is the offhand way the statement was made with the question never being answered. I'd also still like to know what happened that made Davis feel as if Obama did not handle the national security situation properly.

Hmmm which would be better, being a fat bitch or a person with reading comprehension issues.

Maybe you might actually want to read the post and the material linked first.

However, if given the option between being some anonymous jerk who posts silly things like that or being a "fat bitch"?

I'll take fat bitch.

Have a nice day.

Another anonymous who needs to read the post. Agar was not offended, I was not offended, the issue is the question was not answered and that the media focuses on stupidity like this rather than focusing on the lack of an answer.

Yes, some were offended, however...reading the post might help.
