From what I understand this whole War on Women plan was hatched by David Axelrod quite some time ago. The story goes that Axelrod and other strategists prepared a list of areas of vulnerability for Obama. Beyond the obvious ones like the economy and GM bailout a few other soft spots stood out.

In particular, a $ 6,000 pay gap between male and female white house staffers was an area of concern. A story in The Washington Free Beacon in April noted:

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).

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.

On top of that you have widespread reports of female employees routinely being verbally berated by queen bee Valerie Jarrett. It seems Ms. Jarrett felt threatened by other female employees who dared question even the slightest decision. Many women felt forced out of their positions for having the nerve of asking questions instead of bowing to the commands of Jarrett blindly.

Sensing a weak area for Obama, team Axelrod got out ahead of any media accounts of white house sexism by inventing the War on Women strategy.

Doesnít it seem a little ironic that the best speaker at the Dem. Natíl Convention was a serial sexual predator?

I guess if you are a liberal it makes perfect sense. First you trot out all these speakers to demand more womenís rights and then cap it all off in the end with a sociopath lecturing us on living a better life. Maybe the point was this: with people like Bill Clinton running around you better have all the free contraceptives and abortions that money can buy.
