Democrats Try to Revive Female Votersí Enthusiasm
NYT ^ | 10/21/10 | HELENE COOPER and MONICA DAVEY

Posted on 10/22/2010 4:59:42 AM PDT by paudio

Mr. Obama turned his attention on Thursday to convincing the female voters who helped deliver the presidency to him not to abandon the Democratic Party in its hour of need. In a series of orchestrated events, the White House sought to make the case that Mr. Obama’s two years in office have already been a boon to women all over the country.

This guy's ego is so big that he's against the wishes of so many Dhim's candidates to make the election localized, not nationalized. By keep popping on many places, with new issue every day to grace the MSM front pages, it's just bound that the election will be about him.

You mean he's trying to get the "whores'" attention again? To go with how the democrats apparently characterize any woman with the guts to stand up for herself and speak real truth to real power.

In other words, Odumba$$ is of the opinion that only women are stupid enough to vote for his merry band of socialists...

Obama shows once again that he thinks Americans are stupid and easily led. Millions of women are now the bread winners for their families because their husbands are unemployed. They will be paying more taxes in January, thus reducing still further their shrinking family income, thanks to the Democrats. Daughters who see their fathers unemployed and unable to pay their ever-escalating college costs will not see BO as The One this time around. Grandmothers know that ObamaCare will cut their healthcare benefits and there will be no COLA in their Social Security checks.
Nice try, El Bozo.

Not tonight, Dumbo, they’ve got a headache. One that’s been building for two years.

Only drunken single hags who watch Sex and the City and The View and hate men because they can’t attract one would support President Girlyhands.

Unfortunately, there is truth in that opinion. In California for example, there is currently a 16 point gender gap in the Fiorina vs. Babs “call me Ma’am” Boxer senate race. While that is a severe example in this election cycle, women are substantially more supportive of the Rat candidates than are men.

It helps to win the ‘womens’ vote with charismatic, manly men like, you know:

Harry Reid, Barney Frank, Alan Grayson, Al Franken and Barb Mikulski.

LOL. They are really, REALLY grasping for straws.

What kind of mood are they going to be in for a week following (Lord willing) what would be a fantabulous national TIDAL WAVE.?? Just wondering.

Lots of these people are certifiable, and Liberalism is, as the man says, a MENTAL DISORDER.

RE “The outreach to women — which came on the same day that the White House released a report that said Mr. Obama’s policies, including the health care and economic stimulus bills, have helped women over all — is part of a fevered push to cement a Democratic firewall that White House officials are hoping will stem losses in November.... In states like Wisconsin and Florida, campaign commercials featuring women and issues like education, children’s health, stem cell research or abortion rights have emerged. Emily’s List, the group that raises money for female Democratic candidates who support abortion rights, has begun conducting phone banks aimed at these possible “drop off” women voters in California, New Hampshire and Washington, and creating election commercials related to issues like a cervical cancer vaccine placed, for instance, on Hulu before “Glee” — in hopes of reaching younger, single women, a heavily Democratic-leaning group. “We know what happened in 1994 when women stayed home — 16 million women who had voted two years earlier didn’t vote,” said Jess McIntosh, a spokeswoman for Emily’s List. “And we are doing all we can to be sure that does not happen in 2010.

Looks like he wrote off the white male. Yet there are white males that continue to support him.

You are absolutely correct most people comment on the black vote but it is really the women's vote, specifically the single mother's vote, that put him over the top.

http://johnquincy.blogspot.com/2010/02/obamas-new-math.html

Before the election Obama laid out how he would get elected: “I want to create a new electoral math. I don't want to practice division, I want to practice addition.”

Surprisingly, the answer to how he pulled off this trick goes largely unnoticed. It has less to do with his race and more to do with his broken family. Obama expanded the one pool of voters that had eluded politicians for years, single females. What better vehicle to validate the lifestyles and values of the large and growing pool a single mothers than the son of one who had risen high enough to run for president. Finally, the democrats had found a way to sell their product, government dependency that would get its largest target audience to the polls in droves.

It's beginning to be about Obama never being at work in the WH.

I think he's lost a lot of the women's vote, or at least a lot of the enthusiasm for voting for him. Why? They're home trying to encourage sons and husbands who don't see much in their futures. And they're seeing racism from the WH, along with an elitist, entourage mentality.

I was surprised last week. Some of my minority co-workers were expressing this.

Democrats Try to Revive Female Voters’ Enthusiasm

The dems couldn't excite me if...well...never mind. I am, however, very much trying to become enthused about the ostensible "R" candidate for governor in Michigan.

It's just not happening.

Same here. I hate the Democrat running for MD governor, but the Republican is lame and a RINO too. I have called his campaign up a few times to tell him how to do attack ads referencing Sharon Angle's and O’ Donnell's The Taxman. But they just dont get it.

I think at this point the 90% of the election results are locked in, nothing either side could really do to change the outcome. That other 10% is primarialy for control fo the Senate. We have about 5 races that could determine who controls the Senate. All due respect to Scotty Ras, but the Pubbies do not have to be perfect on election night, that assertion is untrue and bit of hyperbolic self promotion. Pubiies have to win 3 of the 5 close ones to control the Senate. PA, CO and Florida on not in play, sorry Scotty, you have been watching too much alphabet TV. ODonnell will lose Deleware and probaly mcMahon in CT, but we win Wa, Ca , WV, Ill and Nevada. So let’ be polsitive and finish strong and not listen to purveyors of doom and proferssional pot stirrers like Scotty Ras who need drama to sell polls and get on Fox TV. They all missed 1994, and they will miss 2010 also.

“Hey there all you [unmarried/divorced] ladies - WHO’S YOUR DADDY? That’s right... gov’t is.”

This is THE reason that single “liberal” women vote for government.

A Muslim looking for woman to speak out, to go public, to vote? To be the same as man as far as rights are concerned? Woman should seriously think of the consequences of supporting even the slimmest aspects of any future Islamic influence upon American society.

Normal women are not taking kindly to undermining family heath care systems. Normal women are worried about their children and grandchildren finding jobs, buying houses and living American lifestyles. Normal women have figured out that Obama is an affirmative action nightmare. Normal women have figured out that 1930’s style Marxist elements who were the naughty children of the 1960s are pulling the American nation apart. Normal women have figured out that their children and grand children’s lifestyles will be poorer than their own as our economy struggles to pay back a massive $2 trillion debt bomb. Normal women, if given the chance, would tear these bastards apart with their bare hands right about now. Normal women are beginning to realize that our system of government allows them to make dramatic changes to the political system every other first Tuesday in November... and normal women intent to do just that in less than 2 weeks. Payback is...well... you know...

It will certainly be a matter of "voting against" the other person for me, not any sincere commitment on my part. (Which often leads me over into 3rd party-land--I mean, if I'm only voting against someone, not FOR someone, why not vote against them both?)

However, this year, I think I will simply have to drag myself out and vote for Snyder. The MOF (margin of fraud) in Mich. has to be overcome by real voters...

Have a great day, sickoflibs!

Obama’s giving away men for eligble single women:

They all come with a federal stipend, have spiked hair, and drive Cooper Minis. They are trained to carry the poodle, put the lid down, and never watch sports.

Gee, politicians will do anything.

I like the signs because they were obviously copied - both have the same wrong spellings. The beauty of it is that the high honchos in the Dem party - the ones tasked with making signs, ALSO can’t spell. Guess they’ll have to go back to printed signs...
