47. Very good analysis. Women in the workforce are an afterthought

for Mitt. His preference is to hire white males very much like himself. Contrast that to President Obama. He doesn't need to have someone find him resumes and put them in a binder - he knows competent women and appoints them (Dept of Labor, Supreme Court). It isn't some big deal of "finding" women who are competent - he knows he has plenty of folks who are competent in his inner circle and he finds appropriate people for job openings - no matter what their gender or race.

Mitt views women as wives and baby-making machines first, and if they are not in that role then they might be looking for a job. If so they will be a secretary and he will pay them as little as possible. This is the way he thinks - and I'll be damned if we are going back to the 1950s again.
