A new ad from President Barack Obama's re-election campaign touts the first law our Candidate-in-Chief signed. While the ad claims the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act will "help insure that women are paid the same as men for doing the exact same work," in reality it was a gift to big Democrat donors (trial lawyers) wrapped in job killing expense for employers and will likely dissuade companies from hiring women in order to avoid potential lawsuits.

But in a video released this morning to millions of his supporters, he previewed an address designed to win a first term for an untested candidate, not a second term for a president that has already failed.
