|It's not math. It's a LIE!|
Jonathon Karl of ABC News nailed White House Spokesman Jay Carney on the subject:
KARL: Jay, I just want to clarify, to come back to this inequality issue. The president cited census data that women on average make 77 percent of what men make. Why is that an example or evidence of discrimination in the workforce at large, but it’s not evidence of discrimination when women here at the White House make 88 percent of what men here at the White House make?Other White House defenders have pointed out that many of the women who work in the White House do menial work like maids, dishwashers, receptionists and telephone operators. Hardly a defense of Obama's attitudes towards women in the workplace. It's no surprise that a former top female aide described the Obama White House as a "genuinely hostile workplace to women." Another said she "felt like a piece of meat."
The Washington Post gives Obama two Pinocchios for his misleading statistics. Well, at least it isn't another Obama "lie of the year" like so much of ObamaCare.
Of course Obama's own indifference to women in the workplace or the facts of women's pay will not stop him from repeating the lie over and over. After all, what else does he have to run on in November but scares, lies and distortions?
