In 2012 the Obama campaign spent millions of dollars convincing Americans that Mitt Romney and his fellow Republicans were waging a “War on Women”.

But the goal in the end is to find the very best individuals for these specific positions.”

The Obama White House, which every reporter knows has always been a towel-whipping, foul-mouthed boys clubhouse, has remarkably few women in positions of real power, as I’ve noted.
Hmmm…Koffler is almost hinting at something more there at the end, isn’t he?
