Sour Andrea Mitchell: Paul Ryan as VP Is 'Not a Pick for Women' or 'Suburban Moms'
NewsBusters.org ^ | August 11, 2012 | Scott Whitlock

Posted on 08/11/2012 5:26:00 PM PDT by Kaslin

Minutes after Paul Ryan was introduced as Mitt Romney's vice presidential nominee, Saturday, a sour Andrea Mitchell dismissed the choice: "This is not a pick for suburban moms. This is not a pick for women."

Playing off the GOP congressman's first speech as the presumptive nominee, Mitchell lectured, "I think that you're going to see that they [Team Romney] have decided that this is a base election." The liberal anchor for MSNBC worried that Ryan was "talking about what the base wants to hear." [See video below. MP3 audio here.]

Andrea Mitchell: Paul Ryan Isn't a Pick for Women

She said of his speech: "He talked about rights coming from God and they don't come from government."

A transcript of the August 11 exchange during live coverage is below:

9:52am EDT

ANDREA MITCHELL: I think that you're going to see that they've decided that this is a base election.

CHRIS HAYES: Yeah.

MITCHELL: This is not a pick for suburban moms. This is not a pick for women. This is a pick for the base.

As a woman, and a suburban mom, I just love Paul Ryan.

Ah yes, Andrea Mitchell, the person who doctored one of Romneys tapes. Sorry Andrea, but you have no credibility in my book.

She is Angry-a Mitchell, after all. That self-important and self-righteous biddy has set herself up as the end-all and be-all authority of what women like and don’t like.

Sometimes, when you think you are leading a parade, it might pay to look back from time to time and see if anybody is still following.

One-car funerals are such pathetic displays.

Oh Andrea, do you honestly believe we care what you think or give 2 hoots what your opinion is? We all know you love abortion and want a condom in every purse.

I hope women wake-up and see what the real liberal opinion of women is about. They believe all women are such sluts that the best thing to do is give them condoms or an abortion so they can look like the party that cares. Is that what women want to be know for so they can tell their children we fought for the death of babies and free condoms.

I personally believe in being responsible for my choices. I am one woman that would get in this liberals face and tell her exactly what I think of her, her messiah obama, and her stupid opinions.

Seriously, she got a BA in English 50 years ago and we are supposed to pretend she’s a superior intellect who’s qualified to tell us what women think? Typical liberal. All women think this, all Hispanics think that, etc.

I noted PLENTY of women and suburban moms at the rally today in Manassas. I was actually surprised, as it was 90 degrees and parking was difficult. People stood in long lines and pushed their children in strollers to the rally. Children were selling lemonade. And this is NORTHERN Virginia.

How quickly they move to 'claim their ground' on behalf of a constituency.

Pathetic, of course; not to mention 'insulting'. We know this works for 'their' base; for sure; and so, of course; they just figure. . .

This is not a pick for hyphenated, special-interest voters who want the government picking winners and losers. Ryan is a pick for decent Americans who want the government to follow the Constitution so that we can be free and productive. I am not at all thrilled with Romney, but Ryan is an excellent candidate and the best option we have in 2012 - far better for anyone who wants to succeed and achieve than Obama, Biden, or Romney. Those who want a government with absolute power already have Obama/Biden, and no Romney pick could steer them away from the dream of "Julia" and her cradle-to-grave dependence on the federal government to live her life for her.

Re: “not a pick for women or suburban moms”.

Yeah, if only Romney had chosen Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachmann, Andrea would have been right in there pitching for a Romney win.

It should be a pick for suburban Moms in particular. If they are at all interested in the tax burden that their children will carry, then they should be intensely interested in the current debt load and efforts to reverse it. They should not embrace so-called Democrat’s “women’s issues” that are a code name for new entitlements, big government programs and huge new debt on their precious children.

A jarring thought; from those who imagine Obama as the 'second coming'. And as well; from someone who has never read our Constitution.

For sure; these Lefties are the political 'zombie class'. Hope Andrea's mailbox is soon filled with copies. Of course; she would have to have an audience of more than double digits. . .

Mitchell suffers from Democrat mindset. That women are an amorphous bloc. They are all the same, think the same, act the same, vote the same, etc. Individuals capable of independent thought do not exist in the Demworld, only collectivist Pavlovian drones who will salivate at the sound of the bell.

I guess the correct pick for women and suburban moms according to Anndreaaaa Mitch ellll, NBC NEWS, is a gay Muslim and his mentally challenged, plug wearing sidekick.

Coming from someone who has NO idea who or what a “suburban mom” is ....let alone what an “average” woman is, that’s a pretty broad (pun intended any way you get it) statement.
She really needs to stay home with Alan Greenspan and re-live how he and Clinton ruined the country.
