Obama: Don't come over until women have 'settled down'
The Washington Times ^ | April 6, 2012 | Susan Crabtree

President Obama's conference on women got off to an awkward start Friday when Mr. Obama seemed to play on some throwback stereotypes about women lacking professional decorum in his opening remarks.

"I was going to head over here earlier, and they said, no, no, this place is full of women and they're still settling down," Mr. Obama told the room. "I said, what do you mean settling down? What are they doing over there? Just creating havoc."

It wasn't clear from his remarks who told the president to wait until the women had "settled down" before coming over to the conference, but the comments caught the attention of Republicans who posted the clip on YouTube under GOPICYMI.

His staff will now assure us that the women just didn’t understand him because ‘women don’t go to law school’.

The Female Labor Force Participation Rate Fell In March From 57.9 Percent To 57.7 Percent. (Bureau Of Labor Statistics, Accessed 4/6/12)

The Number Of Women Not In The Labor Force In March Increased From 52.8 Million To 53.1 Million. (Bureau Of Labor Statistics, Accessed 4/6/12)

“The Poverty Rate Among Women Rose To 14.5 Percent Last Year, Up From 13.9 Percent In 2009—The Highest Rate In 17 Years.” (Leslie Bennetts, “Women: The Invisible Poor,” The Daily Beast, 9/14/11)

The Extreme Poverty Rate – Income Below Half Of Federal Poverty Line – Is The Highest Ever Recorded Among Women. “The ‘extreme poverty rate’ among women was the highest ever recorded, climbing to 6.3 percent in 2010 from 5.9 percent in 2009. ‘Extreme poverty’ means that your income is below half of the federal poverty line—and by 2010, more than 7.5 million women had fallen into that dire category.” (Leslie Bennetts, “Women: The Invisible Poor,” The Daily Beast, 9/14/11)

In 2010, 17 Million Women Lived In Poverty, Compared To 12.6 Million Men. “What all those statistics add up to is that more than 17 million women were living in poverty last year, compared with 12.6 million men. As usual, things were worse for older women; twice as many women over 65 were living in poverty, compared with men.” (Leslie Bennetts, “Women: The Invisible Poor,” The Daily Beast, 9/14/11)

The Poverty Rate Is 25.6 Percent For Black Women And 25 Percent For Hispanic Women. “And those numbers just represented the population-wide average. For Hispanic and black women, the poverty rate increased even faster and rose higher—to 25 percent for Hispanic women and to 25.6 percent for black women.” (Leslie Bennetts, “Women: The Invisible Poor,” The Daily Beast, 9/14/11)
More Than 40 Percent Of Single Mothers Live In Poverty. “As usual, single mothers are having the hardest time of all. More than 40 percent of women who head families are now living in poverty. With more than half of poor children living in female-headed families in 2010, the child poverty rate jumped to 22 percent.” (Leslie Bennetts, “Women: The Invisible Poor,” The Daily Beast, 9/14/11)

The Failure Of Obamanomics Could “Put A Dent” In Female Support For Obama

“Women Aren’t Faring As Well As Other Groups In The Job Market’s Recovery And That Could Put A Dent Into Their Support For President Obama.” (Vicki Needham, “Slower Job Growth For Women Voters Could Cost Obama In Election,” The Hill’s “On The Money,” 3/25/12)

Democrats’ Advantage Among Women Is Narrowing. “While Democrats have charged that the Republican position amounts to a ‘war on women,’ the poll indicates that they aren’t benefiting from it in respondents’ perceptions of the two parties. The survey also suggests that the advantage Democrats have historically enjoyed among women may have narrowed.” (Julie Hirschfeld Davis, “Republicans Losing On Birth Control As 77% In Poll Spurn Debate,” Bloomberg, 3/14/12)

This Is “Despite A Significant Outreach Effort To Female Voters.” “Despite a significant outreach effort to female voters and Democratic accusations of a GOP ‘war on women,’ a new Bloomberg poll shows Obama losing ground among women from his 2008 vote share.” (Byron Tau, “Poll: Obama Down Among Female Voters From 2008 Results,” Politico’s “44,” 3/14/12)

Only 37 Percent Of Married Woman Would Vote For Obama. “Now look at what married women say: 56 percent said they would vote for Romney, and only 37 percent for Obama, with virtually no change from January to February.” (Matt Negrin, “Put A Ring On It: Obama Wins Women, But Not The Married Kind,” ABC News’ “OTUS,” 4/3/12)

49 Percent Of Women Would Support Obama In The Election, Down From 56 Percent In 2008. “Forty-nine percent of women say they would choose Obama over Romney, the front-runner in delegates in the Republican primary, compared with 45 percent who say they’d pick the former Massachusetts governor. In 2008, Obama won 56 percent of the women’s vote to 43 percent for the Republican nominee, Senator John McCain of Arizona, according to national exit polls.” (Julie Hirschfeld Davis, “Republicans Losing On Birth Control As 77% In Poll Spurn Debate,” Bloomberg, 3/14/12)

Is it possible that the Ancient Greeks where right, that women are wild and unstable creatures? That they are given to wild and lustful voting patterns based on wealth, good looks, and promises?

He's not pleased that women are allowed to drive in this country, but for now there is nothing he can do about it.

After the election, he will have more flexibility.

Communists have no use for women. No woman ran the tractor factory in USSR.
