Skip to comments.MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell: Paul Ryan “not a pick for women”
Posted on 08/12/2012 1:50:59 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
Just after Paul Ryan made his running-mate debut in front of the USS Wisconsin on Saturday, Andrea Mitchell reported back to MSNBC --- and decreed that Romney's selection means that "this is a base election. This is not a pick for suburban moms, this is not a pick for women." ...What the what?
In the name of all that is holy --- stop presuming to speak for me. Please, please, please, liberal women, quit boxing me in to your stupid self-stereotypes. It never fails to mystify me as to why women could possibly be so eager to reduce the scope of their interests to such small-minded identifications. Oh, that's right ... most of them don't, it's just a stupid political ploy by the Left to make it seem like there’s no logical way that half of the population could group themselves with the Republican party.
According to progressives these days, it appears that the depth of my political sentience amounts to assuring free contraception and guaranteeing my right to get an abortion (because, duh, ‘we don’t want the government in our bedrooms’ and whatever). I suppose there isn’t a snowball’s chance in hell that “suburban moms” could be more concerned with their children’s future in terms of their employment and wealth prospects and the overall fiscal solvency of the United States, than in terms of making sure a nanny state will cover the costs of their personal, private decisions. And goodness knows there aren’t any women who consider themselves a part of the conservative base — because any females who align themselves beneath such a banner clearly aren’t real women, or something. Facepalm.
When we hear it from a woman we’ll believe it, Andrea.
The only thing liberal understand are pictures. A couple of comparison shots between Biden and Ryan should guarantee a win. Even better if they are bare chested ala Clinton, BO and Putan. Then throw in a shot of the Oscar Myer vehicle he drove around. It’ll be a landslide!
So women can’t possibly care if the country goes bankrupt? I guess it’s because they can’t do math. /sarc
Same generation as Nancy Pelosi.
Joe Biden was a much better pick for women.
Ryan is pretty fit. He has a physique like Reagans
Was for my wife and daughter.
The polling data refutes your lie Andrea.
I’m a woman. I know Paul Ryan. I (and every other woman I know) LOVE Paul Ryan. Go poud sand, Andrea.
For everybody else, tune into Fox News Channel to see Ryan and Romney in action — starting in a little while.
well, well...... I would say that Paul Ryan is a hunk - ok, ok, that’s sexist. But When I was backing Steve Forbes years ago, for president it became clear that when you don’t have a “pretty face for the camera” you just aren’t going anywherein politics these days. VERY sad to hear, but Lincoln would probably not be elected. Geesh. What a loss.
Also, a pubbie gal on FOX the other night was debating some typical dem gal who was screaching over and over about how Romney will take us back to the 50’s with contraceptions, deny us access to Planned Parenthood, etc. blah, blah... and this Kelly said “STOP...... will you PLEASE start talking to women from the waist UP rather than only from the waist DOWN?”
I nearly rolled on the floor. EXCELLENT answer. They think that most of us gals are like the Fluck gal who has $3,000 worth of sex.
AMEN to that. I hear they will both be on - gasp - 60 Minutes, tonight, too.
Speak for yourself sweet cheeks.
Speak for yourself sweet cheeks.
If I were a woman I’d be outraged at feminazis and abortionists for claiming to speak on my behalf.
"The women of the country won't go for it. It is, I believe, an established fact that women don't go for that stuff about the mind. Women have finer feelings. You can count on the women." - Ma Chalmers, Atlas Shrugged
Women never vote for just a good looking man. /sarcasm
A rat’s defecation has more value than the opinions of Andrea Mitchell.
MSNBCs Andrea Mitchell: Paul Ryan not a pick for women
Of course she means women like her and of course she thinks all women should think like her.
Newsflash for you Andrea, your time has come and gone.........
Right, Andrea. And four years ago, when a woman was picked, she wasn’t a pick for women either, basically because she chose to give birth to her children.
This is not a pick for suburban moms, this is not a pick for women." ..
That is correct Andrea, you disgusting Obama Slurper!
This is a pick for ALL AMERICANS!
Which one would women prefer?
No, he’s a pick for AMERICANS you stoopid twit!
(Andrea Mitchell, that is)
You posted it twice and it still doesn’t make sense.
PS - may want to study up on the proper usage of your/you’re before including it in your tagline.
Andrea Mitchell is not a “pick for men.”
The kind of women Andrea is referring to are looking for a “Sugar Daddy” to give them free things. That means they’d go for Biden, even though he’s ugly and has little gremlins stitched to his skull.
nothing would make you happy, skeletor. you got an actual woman on the ticket last time, and you all your fellow harridans stabbed her in the back.
That's a fine observation. It's both telling and enraging.
Jews voted 78% for Obama. (2nd only to blacks as a major demographic backing Obama in 2008.)
Big Cities went 70% for Obama.
So, pretty much every demographic that she's a part of are hardcore Obama supporters. I wonder if she knows any woman who voted for McCain in 2008?
It was another Jewish-liberal-woman-big city-media star, Paulene Kael- who famously said "I can't believe that Nixon won, no one I know voted for him"
These people live in a bubble. She's married to Alan Greenspan (who is 20 years older than her!) I'm sure she's not getting the Freeper view of things at home from him.

What time is the Ryan-Biden
VP DebateCelebrity Death Match?
Yep,I’m a woman.
Is Andrea a third or fourth generation ‘progressive’?
why would anyone pay her for her opinion. It usually stinks..
Andy Mitchell isn’t a woman in the true sense of the word.
She’s merely a gritty, old hag who fancies herself as a soldier in the army to get the worst leader since Nero re-elected to finish off the USA!
does she ever just report news, or is it always an editorial????
Andrea Mitchell does not like him for one reason. He is against abortion.
Yes you’re right. If they want sugar daddy, Bidden is the way to go. That’s their understanding of feminism,I guess.
I believe she is Mrs Alan Greenspan, not that that means she gives a hoot whether we go bankrupt or not.
“That is correct Andrea, you disgusting Obama Slurper!”
Do I really NEED a freaking tag with a post like this?
not only is she dumb, but homely as a mud fence
And Andrea knows this being married to that old geezer Allan Greenspan. The man that help Bernakes job before him. Helped put our country in the mess it is in. Of course the choomer accelerated the mess bigtime. I wonder how much face work this old broad has had.
Oh, that’s a tough one...LOL
Andrea is an idiot. There are some women whom will vote for Ryan on looks alone. Great combo those Irish eyes and black hair.
IIRC He was a trainer at one point in his life. Read that his father, and grandfather both died in their fifties so he has doubled his efforts at staying fit.
Salvation, thank you, very much, for posting some of Paul Ryan’s voting record. Some friends say they do not know Ryan...this will give them some insight.
Hey Andrea, the 60’s are calling and they want their ideas back.
