The Obama administration seized upon a 21-second audio clip involving Mitt Romney and the Lilly Ledbetter Act which first appeared on the Huffington Post and then almost instantaneously on the Obama campaign website. HuffPo reporter Sam Stein kept with the DNC’s WAR ON WOMEN™ narrative by asking whether or not Romney would repeal the Lilly Ledbetter Act. A better question would have been to to ask Romney if he’d stop Fast and Furious, which on Obama’s watch has killed 300 Mexicans and two border agents, but that’s not the Democrat’s focus.
Obama may have signed the Lilly Ledbetter Act (and Romney said he wouldn’t repeal this government intrusion into the private workplace) but it’s the Obama administration that’s paying women less than men.
Will HuffPo ask President Obama about this inequality?
