    A few thoughts...

    1. The Romney campaign didn't know a single woman who was qualified to serve in a cabinet-level role?

    2. The Romney campaign ostensibly went out and recruited women in order to meet diversity goals?

    Interesting.

    I'm just happy that he's willing to let us leave work early so we can go home and cook dinner for our husbands and kids.

    Looks like Obama doesn't practice what he preaches.

    Women paid significantly less in Obama White House than their male counterparts

    All of President Barack Obama's employees may not be treated equally in the White House, as recently released financial records show that female employees earn significantly less than their male counterparts.
    Using the 2011 annual report of White House staff salaries that was submitted to Congress, an $11,000 difference is clear between the median female employee salary and the median male employee salary.
    This news comes on top of continued criticism- of both President Obama and prior presidents- that women are underrepresented in the White House.

    Windsock Willard will be in favor of, or against, whatever you want him to be.

    It wasn't his campaign, it was his cabinet as governor. If the method of filling the cabinet positions was so flawed as to eliminate women to show up and apply, then he should employ other means.

    Why is the left so desperate to portray Romney as moderate? Do they think the only agenda left for them is to try to suppress turnout on the republican side?

    Yea Obama's record high unemployment and women on food stamps makes him the champion for women.

    Its getting to that point. The only thing the past two debates have done is rile up people who were voting for Obama anyway, and were actually already planning on voting is this election.

    All Romney needs to do is show on TV that the picture the DNC (helped by the media) is trying to paint of Romney is hyperbole.

    At that point Romney became a viable candidate, and the shift in independent polling is showing this.

    The bigger question is: Why is the right so desperate to portray Romney as a conservative? Current rhetoric aside, a look at his actual history of governance clearly puts him as solidly in the Rockefeller mushy middle.

    he never did answser the question about pay parity...

    but to be fair, he had about 12 women in his cabinet when he was governor -- out of 33. so i have no doubt he wanted to be moderate mitt and had them recruit women.

    I'd say you nailed it solid.

    It has become obvious that Romney will say anything to anybody at any time if he thinks it will gain 1 point in the polls. He has taken more positions than are chosen in a year at the Mustang Ranch brothel.
