Skip to comments.2010: Is this the year of demise of the liberal female politician?
Posted on 04/25/2010 6:26:05 AM PDT by bestintxas
After considering some of the election results we have seen recently(NY-23, Coakley-Brown, Perry-Hutchison), am wondering is the real signal we are witnessing is the demise of the voting for the liberal female?
Looking around, I see lots and lots of problems this country has due to liberal politicians, and females like Patty Murray, Blanche Lincoln, Barbara Boxer do not appear rock-solid for reelection.
Could it be voters see that something is amiss when a female is elected? The overwhelming tendency is to be liberal for women. Look at Kay Bailey Hutchison(BTW, first clue on her being non-conservative is a hypenated name). She is supposely conservative, but would anyone include her within the top 1/3 of conservatives in the Senate? No, not with her voting record.
I see coming tide against voting for women. Yes there are Palins and Bachmans, but for everyone of these conservative women there are 10 that are true liberals.
Yes because there is no confidence in their leadership skills.
Yes, until the conservatives screw up again. Then the sainted “middle” will put the liberals right back in. Bastards.
Lib, “female” politicians are beastly looking sows 90% of the time. To feature them to the public is akin to Hollywood featuring Kathy Bates in love stories. They’d go broke.
Please share with others.
There as another path to the political cycle: We put conservatives (the adults) back in charge, they reset the private sector, shring and put the public sector back in check, economy starts ramping up again... booms, tax revenues rise... quickly, and then, almost on cue, the sainted “middle” puts the ‘rats, statists, progressives back in charge to deja-vu this cycle all over again.
Would be nice to have a surge of the conservative female politician. Kudos to Brewer, Palin, and others.
just to be fair, Governor Shriver of California should be included in the list of Liberal Female Politicians that are abject failures.
I have never identified with this woman as being conservative and she is very slow on points, quite boring. She is a camelian when in the presence of liberal progressives. She will be history for future elections.
The problem is driven by the Libtard Media. They are allowed to hound conservatives relentlessly on a daily basis over made up stories and innuendo. The lazy voters, or dumb masses, are just being manipulated like sheep and respond in kind.
The only hope, and I admit it's a slim chance at best, is for Conservatives to actively take the media to the woodshed through the Internet.
It can’t come soon enough for me.
Most of these women are witches, far as I’m concerned. I cannot possibly convey how fried I get, each time they are presented as representative of American women.
They worship at the holy grail of abortion, and nothing else. That includes the RINOs, btw.
I used to think Ann Coulter was nuts, when she claimed women should not be allowed to vote. Now I understand it. Only FReepergals should vote; only they have enough sense to do so. :)
"How DARE you talk like that about me!"
And it’s pretty pathetic, btw, that the only people in the Republican party with enough STONES to challenge this Marxist bastard, pain in the ass, are:
*ok, I’m done for now*
In his book “Queen Victoria,” Lytton Strachey summed up how I will feel about the demise of all liberal polticians — and the entrance of Sarah Palin into the Oval Office:
“The nasty old men, debauched and selfish, pig-headed and ridiculous, with their perpetual burden of debts, confusions, and disreputabilities—they had vanished like the snows of winter, and here at last, crowned and radiant, was the spring.”
2010: Is this the year of demise of the liberal Kenyan politician?
Doubtful. Women are a part of politics for good ... or bad depending on the woman. Just like their male counterparts there are good and bad.
Should read “2010: Is this the year of demise of the liberal female RINO! (Hopefully all RINO’s)
The misogynistic comments on this vanity thread are sickening.
I have no problem with women in politics.
Have great respect for Golda Meir, Margaret Thatcher and others of that stature. One of my favorite columnists is George Anne Geyer, respect her a great deal.
Currently Sarah Palin, Anne Coulter and Michelle Maklin come to mind as forceful intelligent women involved in politics.
Same here. I agree with you wholeheartedly. Several have show more ability and acumen that there male counterparts.
let’s not forget the ones we disagree with though: Fienstein, Boxer, Cynthia McKinney. And of course my own Kay Bailey Hutchinson.
No, I too like the Golda Meir’s. Margaret Thather’s, Sarah Palin’s, Micchelle Bachmann’s.
I’ll see your columnists and raise you Star Parker and Nancy Salvato. Two exceptional female columnists I think.
Yeah: Chucky Schumer, Harry Reid, Russ Feingold, Arlen Specter, Al Gore, John Kerry, Chris Dodd, Waxman, Obama, Kennedy, Biden...............
Those pesky liberal WOMEN!
We’re on the same page.
I have noticed that the women who are effective political leaders are seldom that comfortable in typical housewife’s circles. Cannot tell you why, but have seen many in business and politics who seemed more comfortable around men, they had a lack of interest in what some would call normal female interests.
It is also evident in engineering and hard sciences. Fewer females in those fields. Our talents are different regardless of what is said by the lefties.
“Would be nice to have a surge of the conservative female politician. Kudos to Brewer, Palin, and others.”
Think how different America’s position would be if President Reagan had been succeeded by President J Kirkpatrick, instead of President G H W Bush.
It makes me sick to think about it.
Democratic party elected officialsn have proven themselves no better than their male counterparts. They feel they have to prove themselves, and people vote for them just because they’re women. They’ve done worse.
LOL! My hubby commented yesterday that the “ballsiest” people nowadays are Republican women! I told him, “And now you can add Jan to the list.” True leadership is emerging......
That's how I see it- and I've always said, "I'd rather have one good woman back me up, than ten sorry men."
One feature of democracy, long noted, is its instability.
It would be fun to collect statements regarding political rights for women say from about 1880 to 1920. Curiously my grandmother, born 1889, did not believe women should vote or sit on juries. In fact when called for jury duty in the early 1950’s she stated during voir dire that belief and was removed from the panel. In spite of the parades, marches et cetera not everyone thought it was a good idea. Basically, womens rights flow from democratic egalitarianism.
“Doubtful. Women are a part of politics for good ... or bad depending on the woman. Just like their male counterparts there are good and bad.”
Sure there are good and bad.
The point to be made is what are the odds that a woman elected into office will be conservative vs a man elected into office?
The odds overwhelmingly favor men as the choice of conservatives.
Women can be but statistics sure don’t favorably that way.
Sorta like being black and NOT voting for Obama. What are the odds?
“The misogynistic comments on this vanity thread are sickening.”
Yep, I barf all the time when I think of it too.
By the way, you taught me a new word.
My guess would be about 1 out of about 33... :0)
