Romney flip flops four times in four days on Lily Ledbetter Fair pay Act. Presidential?

I can’t believe how the press continues to bend over backwards to give the benefits of the doubt to Republicans misstatements, lies and back tracking.

In a series of non-story coverage, ABC News actually posted this mindless eye rolling nonsense:
The courting of female voters has intensified since … Tuesday, with the candidates pivoting to focus on women after Romney’s “binders full of women” comment, as well as some waffling by a Romney senior adviser on the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.  GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan was even asked about jobs for women at his town hall here Thursday … Ryan was asked by a female attendee if his ticket had “any plan in place for jobs specifically for women.”

He immediately answered much as his running mate has in the past: “Get the economy growing, number one.”
Really, that’s an answer? More importantly…that’s a story?

Yet the real story is even more surreal and insulting. Here’s what really happened, and what the “female attendee” will never see covered seriously. If voters were exposed to the Romney campaign follow-up to the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, they would abandon these hucksters in a heartbeat:
