Sometimes it is just too much fun arguing with Liberals because sooner or later either facts destroy all they are attempting to claim or their own logic falls apart conflicting with itself.
In a recent online discussion on another website the argument went a little like this:
Liberal: Republicans wage war on women (fill in the blank with this week's talking points)
Right wing poster: Obama pays his female staff less then the men.
Liberal #1: No that's a lie.
Me: Here is the link to the 2011 White House Annual Report. If you look at the median income for men and women it's an 18% difference.
Liberal #2: Well it's Republican's own fault, they blocked the fair pay act.
Now let me interject here for a moment, this 2nd poster's argument basically says that Democrats will not do what they themselves claim is the right thing to do unless forced to do so by the law.
Liberal #1: What Democrats are pushing for is equal pay for equal work, your "median income" value by sex does point to an under representation of women in the higher paying jobs at the White House, but women and men at the same tier of responsibility are paid EXACTLY THE SAME at the White House.
Interesting that this poster own explanation points out that Obama's staff has fewer women in the top level jobs.
Me: Look up the job "Assistant Staff Secretary" of which there are 3 in that position Theodore makes $65,000 where as Caitilin and Sarah earn $60,000.
Facts do not support Liberal #1's claim.
So this leads us with two eventual truths...
1) There is a legitimate reason for men to earn higher incomes on average
2) Obama and the left are just as guilty, if not more so, of underpaying women.
Either way, the logic doesn't hold for Liberals.
