    From the White House report to Congress, In 2011 (the last date I could find), of the top 21 positions in the White House Staff, all the exact same position, with the exact same pay, 7 ere women. That’s 33%, sure beats the 18.3% in the current Congress that are women, all at varying pay rates. Of the 78 women in the House only 20 are republicans, of the 80 women in the Senate only 4 are republicans, That;s roughly only 4% in either chamber that are republican women. And of the newly elected women only 16% are republican women.
    So who is the greater bigot, misogynist or chauvinist, the White House or the voters and which voters?


    As usual conservatives and wuerker miss the point completely.

    Mitt was unfairly criticized for an honest slip of the tongue? Did you read the same stories I did? He was rightly criticized for his dismissive attitude towards women and poor record in hiring them overall, and his “slip” was Mitt trying to claim he was looking for female staff when in fact those binders were provided to him by an organization trying to GET him to hire some women.

    I guess they are not counting Hillary since she is taking 4 years off, I hope John Kerry is approved.

    An African-American President doesn’t need to allow Affirmative Action to intervene with his picks for the best people available and willing. He’s Teflon-coated on this! And with the women-thing: the VERY FIRST LAW he signed was the Lilly Ledbetter act. I don’t care about the number of women in the cabinet, I care about the laws that help woman to GET into the cabinet!

    She is a department head. Not a staff member.

    Care to elaborate on your unfounded calumny?

    Women should run the government. Men are too angry and testy about everything.

    Well yes I probably am, but I’d still be better at running the government than my ex-wife… oh wait, did I say that out loud?

    “As usual conservatives and wuerker miss the point completely.”
    .
    Wuerker doesn’t usually miss the point. He just sometimes tries too hard to criticize the “left” so he won’t be considered one-sided. Hey Matt, Don’t worry about it; it’s not your fault (nor ours) that “left” is right. But the cartoon is funny (and not completely beside the point). By the way, where has Mitt been hiding out since the election? It seems like he’s been transported to some distant planet… I don’t imagine he’s planning on making it back for the inauguration.

    And get flagged again, broads? really?
    .
    Off topic kinda, but the Dick Tracy cartoon gets zero trolls, they flag trolls as a family over there and the posts just disappear.
    .
    I figure you guys here in the editorial section like trolls as they seem to be encouraged rather than flagged.

    … " By the way, where has Mitt been hiding out since the election? It seems like he’s been transported to some distant planet… I don’t imagine he’s planning on making it back for the inauguration…"
    __________________________________________

    Shortly after Romney lost the election by only about 3 1/2 million votes, he spoke out a couple of times, an’ was roundly an’ soundly shellacked for it by the news, even FOX News. His timing was off, an’ I don’t think anyone really wanted to hear from him at all…His adversaries certainly didn’t – an’ his fan base was disappointed an’ disheartened by the election results…
    WHY in the wild an’ wacky world of politics would anyone expect Romney to do anything OTHER than drop well below the radar of the news media indefinitely?…After all, he said throughout the campaign that this was the last time he would seek the office, an’ I believe that once the battle was lost, he an’ his family couldn’t wait to return to private life. God bless him an’ his wife an’ family for giving it a very good try…’Helluva better effort than McCain & Palin gave the 2008 campaign…

    Personally, I had hoped that Mitt would win – after four years of the Obama brand of “Hope & Change,” I felt the nation really needed a different kind of change an’ a fresh direction…but it was just not to be.

    What IS to be is another four years of Obamanation …I don’t look forward to that in the least, but it is what it is, an’ I can’t afford to leave the country…so I will hang in there until Obama leaves – the White House, at least – maybe he will move back to his native Kenya after he leaves office, but I would doubt it. He’ll just become a gaZillionaire doing speaking engagements forever an’ ever…We’ll probably never be rid of him an’ his ABW wife…

    Should I say something clever like " say that in front of a roomful of women.." or how about “Does this address make my rebut look fat…”

    Romney lost by closer to 5 million votes.
