Like most of the Catholics in the world,and certainly most Americans, Biden believes abortions is a women's choice.

Do let me know the very second the Pope- who is the boss in the Catholic world- decides that he should not give people who think abortion is a choice communion.

Maybe the pope should have checked with you first, eh, Dumbo?

<quoted text>70% of Highest-Paid White House Staffers Are Men
Ah! So it's better than when George Bush was presdient...

Leaked Salary List: Bush's Highest-Paid Staff Mostly Male
Bush's Highest-Paid Staff Is Mostly Male
By Dana Milbank
Washington Post

Tuesday 13 July 2004

The president's men are doing very well. The president's women are doing slightly less well, but still not bad.

With new White House salary figures leaked to The Washington Post and an Excel spreadsheet, crack researcher Margot Williams determined that men in the Bush White House earn an average of $76,624 a year. Women earn $59,917 on average. That means Bush women earn about 78 percent of what Bush men earn.

As it happens, that's almost exactly the national average for the gap in pay between the sexes, although it's a good bit below the 88 percent for the nearly 1 million professional and administrative employees in the federal workforce. Also, the White House has the advantage of making all its hires from scratch after the 2000 election.

At the White House, the gap has nothing to do with wage discrimination: Women and men with similar titles receive similar pay. Rather, it comes from the dominance of men in high-end jobs; of the 17 White House staffers earning $157,000 - the top of the pay scale this year - 12 are men. That's roughly comparable to the 26 percent representation of women in the federal government's 7,000-person Senior Executive Service, according to the Partnership for Public Service.

Overall, working in the White House is quite a good living. The average salary,$67,075, is well above the latest available metropolitan Washington average of $48,420, and nearly double the national average of $36,764. But don't fret about the overpaid presidential adviser: Most of them could be earning far more as lawyers, lobbyists and corporate executives.

The list, as of June 12, has its share of surprises. The lowest paid of the 431 in the non-career "White House Office" (a collection of mostly political appointees and staff on loan from other agencies) is James A. Baker III, who as President Bush's envoy in search of Iraqi debt relief, has declined a salary. At the other extreme is Stephen Friedman, Bush's top economic adviser who, despite a net worth in the tens of millions, collects a government salary of $157,000.

The top salary increased from $151,000 last year, but the ranks of the highest-paid decreased by one. The new head of Bush's USA Freedom Corps service initiative was given a lesser title and salary than her predecessor.

As in many workplaces, a good relationship with the boss seems to pay off. Israel Hernandez, who served as Bush's "body" man in Texas, attending to the governor's corporeal needs, now earns $141,000 as senior adviser Karl Rove's deputy. Gordon Johndroe, who served in a similar capacity during the campaign, now is earning $87,700 as press secretary to first lady Laura Bush. Blake Gottesman, the president's current personal aide, gets $54,400 for such tasks as guarding colleagues' access to Bush, accepting knickknacks handed to Bush and placing the president's speeches on lecterns.

Sure it does grasshopper. The Catholic Church as well as Christianity are against the murder of children, aka Abortion. They claim to be Catholics........they are liars and frauds........but maybe they are Cherokees.

President Obama has 36 consecutive months of job creation at his back against the 750,000 jobs cuts promoted by the Republican program cuts.

You honestly believe American citizens haven't notice the outstanding job Obama has accomplished on the job front all while fighting off the attempts of the Republicans to sabotage the economic vitality in America?

the Republicans fight tooth and nail to maintain the tax entitlements for Corporations and the hi income earners in America but fight against implementing the provisions of the jobs bill for more than 2 years now.......... you actually think the American public hasn't noticed?

We you paying attention on Election Even? Or is this more of the fatal denial you and supporters of the right suffer from?

Wouldn't the agencies within DHS use fire-arms and the corresponding munitions in question? Seems those Republican Congressmen aren't to bright or again they're throwing something at the wall hoping something sticks in trying to ignite some conspiracy theory......... ROFLMAO

Same tired strategy.

Yep, and after that there are still 2,000,000 jobs less than when he took office....he is a failure and hasn't kept one big promise, hell he still hasn't visited a black neighbor hood, and he lives in one of the blackest cities in America.
