Obama has a lot of bad ideas. Here is one of them. Liberals have the idea that there should be the same proportion of the population in all jobs. The same percentage of women in engineering and science as men. This overlooks one simple fact. The percentage of women interested in science and engineering is significantly smaller than the percentage of men. Once one of my duties was in trying to interest young women employees in going to engineering school at company expense (to meet government mandates). I had some luck in interesting young women engineers in going to graduate school, but none at all in getting bright secretaries in becoming engineers. One young lady told me she was interested in finding an engineer to marry, not in going to engineering school. This program will have the same sort of success as the sub-prime mortgage loan social engineering.
