War on Women: White House Pays Women Less Than Men

The White House is in full campaign mode as the 2012 presidential election nears.  With a dismal record and a his signature piece of legislation, Obamacare, being reviewed for constitutionality by the Supreme Court, President Obama has nothing to do but throw spitballs and see what sticks.  This is the fundamental reason why Obama's re-election campaign has went through numerous new tag lines (Hope and Change, We Can't Wait, Yes We Can, Whoever Smelt It Dealt It) - their message is not resonating with the American people.  Forget about his radical, anti-American base - they're not enough to get him re-elected.  All of these issues are the reason why the White House has spurned up phony issues that they know the media will carry, with the current one being that Republicans hate women.  Yawn.

Don't get the dates confused: two weeks ago, the White House was pushing their typical race-based message to the media with Trayvon Martin, you know, the kid that would've looked like Obama's son if he had one.  No, this week is the war on women that the White House is aiming for.  With Mitt Romney all but having the Republican nomination tied up, the Obama machine is starting to hit him hard to knock him down early.  This is why the Sandra Fluke conctraception issue was brought to Congress at the end of February.  It's been a systemic plan by the White House to take the attention off of the issues.

This is why the liberal media is pushing this phony war on women; they're carrying the White House's water, again.  The focus is on Mitt Romney and it's a load of garbage.  It's a strawman...or woman, unless you're Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who's either a man, woman or an in-between.  As we've discovered while this populist war is waged, the White House is paying women considerably less than their male counterparts!  Quick!  Look the other way folks - nothing to see here!

From Washington Free Beacon:

Female employees in the Obama White House make considerably less than their male colleagues, records show.

According to the 2011 annual report on White House staff, female employees earned a median annual salary of $60,000, which was about 18 percent less than the median salary for male employees ($71,000).

Calculating the median salary for each gender required some assumptions to be made based on the employee names. When unclear, every effort was taken to determine the appropriate gender.

The Obama campaign on Wednesday lashed out at presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney for his failure to  immediately endorse the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act, a controversial law enacted in 2009 that made it easier to file discrimination lawsuits.

President Obama has frequently criticized the gender pay gap, such as the one that exists in White House.

“Paycheck discrimination hurts families who lose out on badly needed income,” he said in a July 2010 statement. “And with so many families depending on women’s wages, it hurts the American economy as a whole.”

On Wednesday night, the tables turned dramatically, thanks to Democratic operative Hillary Rosen, who works for SKDKnickerbocker, home of former White House communications director Anita Dunn and a PR firm for the DNC.  Rosen on CNN stated, "Guess what? His [Mitt Romney's] wife has never worked a day in her life" as a way to attack Ann Romney, who chose to be a stay at home mother of five boys, who has MS and had breast cancer.

Rosen went on to say the phrase "war on women" was created by Republicans, yet it was pushed by DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Nancy Pelosi in a fundraising statement.  That backlash was substantial, with Democratic hit man David Axelrod, Obama 2012 campaign creep Jim Messina and First Lady Michelle Obama all taking to Twitter to rebuke Hillary Rosen's absurd comments.

The war on women, like the phony Sandra Fluke contraception issue, was coordinated behind the scenes by the Obama campaign.  It's nothing more than a distraction from the real issues facing America and President Obama's horrendous record.  Democrats will do anything to take the attention away from where it should be.  The only war on women is due the incredibly high unemployment rate under President Obama.
