Skip to comments.The GOP doesn't just have a woman problem, it doesn't understand women

Carly Fiorina, former California GOP senate challenger to Barbara Boxer, emerged at the Conservative Political Action Conference here as the speaker most willing to engage the Republicans' persistent problems with appealing to women. Well, after she spent the first half of her speech denying climate change. Priorities!
Fiorina didn't offer a solution, but she did offer some great slogans: "I am a proud pro-life woman. ... I believe science is proving us right everyday!" (Hey, don't knock junk science until you've tried it, right?) She also echoed a feminist line when she said, "All issues are women's issues."
I like that line. I've used it myself. But, to judge by the speakers at CPAC this weekend, what she means is, "There's a woman's angle to every issue." You know, ladies care about health care because we have babies! (Especially when we don't have a choice.) Women care about guns because how else will we defend ourselves! (I fear for the woman who told the audience that she sleeps with a "loaded gun next to my bed and I've never felt safer".)
But when feminists talk about every issue being a women's issue, we're not talking about finding a way to make a specific policy agenda appeal to women. What most feminists mean by that is "There's a larger economic or policy angle to every issue dismissed as 'women's'."
The leaders of the GOP just can't comprehend that women's circumstances decades of discrimination against them might mean that policies, or the lack of policies, which seem perfectly fair to "everyone else" (white men, basically) have a different impact on them....

To libs, a way to a woman’s heart is through sucking out a baby out of the womb..nothing makes libs happier than seeing babies being slaughtered in abortion clinics
Who the heck does?
Well, there is always the free stuff gambit....
It seem to remember a certain psychologist expressing the same frustration:
The great question that has never been answered, and which I have not yet been able to answer, despite my thirty years of research into the feminine soul, is "What does a woman want?"
A bunch of left-wing limeys complaining about the GOP.
Why don’t they butt out of our affairs and worry about their own damn country?
These commie rats still loathe Thatcher-Reagan.
They are going to push the “GOP hates women” meme. International Communist Women’s Day was just celebrated.
Stalinists lie. ALWAYS.
Collectivism classifies people into groups, nothing more. The individual is nothing..
Identity politics only matter if you serve The Party. If you are a conservative, then you are a race traitor, confused, suffer from battered woman syndrome, or are plain “dumb”.
Wymyn want to be “kept” by their ‘Rat Overlords.
"As best as I can tell, they don't like being women. Here is the entire problem in five words." -- Fred Reed
Of course the GOP doesn't understand women like this. Neither does the rest of the world.
A man was walking along a Florida beach and stumbled across an old lamp. He picked it up and rubbed it, and out popped a genie.
The genie said, “OK, You released me from the lamp, blah blah blah. This is the fourth time this month, and I’m getting a little sick of these wishes so you can forget about three... You only get one wish!”
The man sat, and thought about it for a while and said, “I’ve always wanted to go to Hawaii, but I’m scared to fly, and I get very seasick. Could you build me a bridge to Hawaii so I can drive over there to visit?”
The genie laughed and said, “That’s impossible!!!
Think of the logistics of that! How would the supports ever reach the bottom of the Pacific? Think of how much concrete — how much steel!! No, think of another wish.”
The man said, “OK, I’ll try to think of a really good wish.”
Finally, he said, “I’ve been married and divorced four times. My wives always said that I don’t care and that I’m insensitive.
So, I wish that I could understand women, know how they feel inside, what do women want?
The genie said, “Do you want that bridge to be two lanes or four?”
You beat me to it!! LOL!
With Obama on the way out and Hillary on the way in, it’s time to put away the race card and break out the sexist card.
Wasn’t (Isn’t?) Ana Marie Cox the Wonkette?
I'll tell you what we want. We want people to be able to read our minds even when we can't!
We also want more shoes.
That sounds more like a disjointed Democrat tactic ....
