Barack Obama, you magnificent hypocrite . . .
On his MSNBC show The Beat on Tuesday, Ari Melber played a clip of Barack Obama at a rally in Nevada, saying:
"Nevada, you could be the first state ever to elect a state legislature where the majority are women [wild applause.] Which, I'm pretty sure things will work better if you give women a chance to run things for a while. But you have to vote!"
If Obama really believed that, why didn't he step aside and let History's Most Qualified Person take the Democrat nomination in 2008?
Melber concluded: "Former President Obama basically saying it's somebody else's turn." Now that he had his turn.
Currently in the Nevada state legislature, 38 percent of the seats are occupied by women. That's the third highest in the country. If the most optimistic forecast happened, 57 percent of the members in Nevada's Assembly would be women.
