"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary."-- H.L. Mencken (1918)

Obama's " War On Women" - More Progressive Hypocrisy
Shame om President Obumbler! After all their screaming and media prodding which changed the narrative from attacks on our First Amendment rights and freedom of religion (which they were losing) to Republicans "War on Women" we now find out that this administration discriminates when it comes to paying it's female employees let alone the staff numbers being male dominated.
It is also interesting to note that photos recently published on the internet of his campaign workers posing in their Chicago headquarters shows a startling LACK of DIVERSITY. (see below)
Progressives continue to show us that they are total hypocrites and as always no matter what issue they are being accusatory over, POINTING FINGERS AT THEIR OPPOSITION, it seems to be a projection of EXACTLY WHAT THEY THEMSELVES ARE DOING or POLICIES THEY FOLLOW or CONTRIBUTE TO.
Either subterfuge is a favorite progressive tactic or their myopic view renders them to stupid to see their own HYPOCRISY.I suspect the latter.
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.”
It is not known whether any female employees at the White House have filed lawsuits under the Ledbetter Act.
White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters last week that Obama believes it is “long past the time” for women to be admitted to the traditionally all-male Augusta National Golf Club, site of the Masters golf tournament.
But the president has demonstrated a strong preference for all-male foursomes in his frequent golf outings, a bias that extends well beyond the putting green and into the Oval Office.
“Women are Obama’s base, and they don’t seem to have enough people who look like the base inside of their own inner circle,” former Clinton press secretary Dee Dee Myers told the New York Times.
“There’s a looseness to Obama when he’s hanging out with the boys club that doesn’t appear in co-ed gatherings,” she wrote. “The president blows off steam on the golf course with male colleagues and friends. He takes to the White House basketball court with NBA stars, men’s college players, and male cabinet members and members of Congress.”
