MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell: Paul Ryan “not a pick for women”
Hotair ^ | 08/12/2012 | Erika Johnsen

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?

CLICK ABOVE LIN FOR THE VIDEO

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Woman voted 56% to 43% for Obama. (Men were 49% - 48% for Obama - that's the gender gap).

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.

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!

I find it touching and heartwarming that the MSNBC Lefties are so concerned that the Republicans might lose an election, and give us so much helpful advice on how to avoid doing so.
