Obama and his Media Girls Dress Code

Team Obama issues dress code for female reporters

The Barack Obama campaign wanted to make sure that the reporters traveling along with the presidential candidate on his foreign tour presented themselves properly. His staff distributed a memo that dictated a dress code, reminding the women in the media entourage of the need to keep from offending the natives. Politico’s Carrie Budoff Brown e-mailed the memo to Ben Smith:


Quote:
Reporters traveling overseas with Sen. Barack Obama were thrown a bit of curve last week when the campaign emailed a “dress code” for Israel and Jordan. Aides had passed along as a courtesy the list that they had distributed to their staff to follow. But some of the tips raised a few eyebrows, particularly among the female reporters.

“Do not wear green.” (Explained later as the color of Hamas)

“Do not wear nail polish.”

“Women should only wear a limited amount of jewelry.”

“Shoulders and arms must be fully covered (no strapless tops, no tank tops, no short sleeve shirts.)”

“Closed-toe shoes, women should also wear stockings.”

At historical and religious sites, a suit or slacks should be worn, shoulders and arms must be covered (“no strapless tops, no tanks tops no short sleeve shirts”), shoes might need to be removed, and women may be asked to cover their heads and “should be prepared with a scarf/pashmina,” the email stated.

First, wouldn’t women traveling to the Middle East already understand at least some of this, especially the journalists? This gives more than just a faint whiff of paternalism, lecturing professionals about how they should comport themselves. All appearances to the contrary, the media entourage does not work for Team Obama. One might think that the women of the press would get offended by treating them like schoolchildren or idiots.

And some of this is downright strange, especially in Israel. Israeli women don’t wear nail polish and open-toed shoes? Apparently, they don’t like jewelry, either. Do they care if women wear stockings or not, and why should the Obama campaign care?

I suppose if any of this offends the women in the press, the proper response would be, “Just get over it, sweetie.”

you should respect others customs. you don't just go into another country and act like you can do whatever you feel like. I love it how us americans feel we are entitled to do whatever and whenever without regards to the enviroment around us. its selfish, pathetic, and embarassing. its the exact reason why the muslim world has the hatred to u that they do, along o course with the unwavering support for the zionist state of isreal.

Well on most things I agree. I just am sick of all this muslim demand BS., Cartoons? Cool, you dont like carttons that your prob. And we cant name a dog allah or any number of other names? screw that. If I want my dog to me called Muhammed thats none of some muslims business. If he wants to nake his pet Rat jesus, so be it I dont care.

If the muslim world hates someonre thats no reason to change our way of life to make them happy. The Radical Muslim religion is not a respectable thing anyway.

I need to go feed my pig Achmed and let Muhammed out.

That appears to be a lie, just based on reading exactly what you posted.

He issued dress code to his staff and passed along the information to the press. He didn't "issue a dress code for female reporters".

Yes, it's a lie to say that his campaign issued a "dress code for female reporters". They issued a dress code for his staff and "passed (the list) along as a courtesy" to reporters.

Do you even read your own posts?

When you go to another country, you can't act that way. When you are working and selling a product, which is what a campaign is, you can't do that either.

You respect your customers, your audience, and avoid bad publicity. If a female staffer were dressed in a way that to Muslims is scandalous - the bare shoulders and such is considered nudity to them - that's going to overshadow their goal of trying to make him look presidential.

Not to mention their own protection. Arab men go beserk when they see scanty clothes. I've been there. They'll paw you and boldly stare you down. It triggers a certain image about women to them. Not safe imo.
