Obama Rallies Voters in Fla. Amid Waning Female Support
Washington Times ^ | October 25, 2012 | David Boyer

YBOR CITY, Fla. — With a new poll showing his lead among women voters is gone, a raspy President Obama rallied supporters in this battleground state Thursday morning after a red-eye flight from Nevada, warning voters that Republican Mitt Romney would repeal the health-care benefits of “Obamacare.”

“As we saw again this week, I don’t think any politician in Washington, most of whom are men, should be making health care decisions for women,” Mr. Obama told supporters in an apparent reference to a Republican Senate candidate’s controversial comments about rape. “Women should be making their own health care decisions. That’s why the health care law we passed put those choices in your hands. That’s where it belongs, and that’s where it will stay as long as I’m president.”

As Mr. Obama arrived in Florida, he was greeted with a startling new poll showing that his advantage with women voters has evaporated. The AP/GfK survey found that Mr. Romney is now tied with the president among female voters; a month ago, Mr. Obama held a 16-point advantage with women.

Obama aides discredited the poll, as they have other surveys this month in which the results weren’t to their liking. White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer called the AP poll “wrong” and blamed it on too many polls.

“It’s hard to poll these days, because there’s like 1,000 polling outfits calling every person in these battleground states,” Mr. Pfeiffer told reporters traveling with the president. “So when a media organization gets a poll that is so obviously wrong … then perhaps you want to throw it out instead of writing on it. If you look at the aggregate of all the polls, what you see is that the president has a very strong advantage with women.”

Some threat that is. Would rather it be a promise.

I have seen FAR more Romney/Ryan stickers and signs than I have Obama/Biden in south Florida.

It’s actually quite surprising.

Obama is still running around trying to shore up sagging support in voting blocs that went heavily for him in 2008. He’s thrown appealing to independents overboard. That’s a sure sign of a losing campaign as we all know.

I live just south of Tampa. I got tickets for the Romney Rally this Saturday in Land-O-Lakes.

I drove around town (Ruskin) yesterday. And I only saw 1 Obama sign and over a dozen Romney/Ryan signs.

I have had my Romney/Ryan sign on my driveway for 3 weeks now.

Nothing says “pathetic loser” like this kind of desperate pandering.

Honestly, - his attitude that women are voting based only on access to free birth control and abortions is insulting. However, this is typical of the President who feels that, if the public doesn’t share his agenda, it is because he simply “Didn’t explain it clearly enough.” He genuinely believes that all voters are stupid and that he is wiser and smarter than those of us who actually work to pay his salary.

Fl. is gone for Obama, yet he is wasting time there.

Shows his arrogrance and it will lead to a greater defeat for the Democrats then need be.

Much like Hilter would not allow his commanders to retreat.

Apparently there exists a gullible faction of ‘womyn’ whose lives do revolve around the contemplation of their crotches.

If he can afford to take a day or so away from from more critical states, Ryan and his mom should cruise through Florida making a few campaign stops. She’s a cutie, a Florida resident, senior citizen, and can relate to so many of the Floridian.

That’s saying a lot, isn’t it? And the weirdest part? The older jewish snowbirds are doing plenty of complaining about Obama. Not sure if they are going to vote against him, but...

They shot my grandaddy for that back in the 30s...maybe I’m genetically programmed.

I’m in St Augustine, well St Johns county really, NE FL and we’ve only seen one obama yard sign and that is displayed by a family from NY who have just moved here and rented a small house who I might add are welfare, food stamps and free breakfast and lunch for their daughters at school, other than that Romney stickers are everywhere, some days we never see an oabma sticker.

My wife is up in Ponte vedra everyday working and she said she went down Rosco BLVD and counted 29 Romney yard signs and not one oabma sign, every where is Romney around here and I travel every day to JAX, and to Flager to clay to putnam and of course my county St Johns.,

There are streets and neighborhoods here with all Romney signs and not one obama sign

It was reported obama only got 5,000 today where he would have got 50,000 4 years ago and it was held in a small area

So you'll be signing the Obamacare repeal, then?

Please, Lord, give this guy laryngitis! Totally! Let Biden take over...and with any luck, maybe they’ll both get it! Imagine that! I guess that would probably put Axelrod and DWS out on the stump for them, though!

Amid Waning Female Support

Going to have to change the poll weighting to 5% male, 5% female, 90% tranny. There, Obama's still ahead.

Why can't it be pointed out how misogynistic these Dems are when it comes to women? We're not just a walking uterus; we have budgets to balance, retirements to plan for, families to raise with increasing consumer costs; we have to try to clothe, feed and educate children. We're partners with husbands who are seeing our joint savings not grow as fast and seeing 401Ks losing ground. Forget social security -—while I'm 61 and hubby is 66, we'll continue to work until we drop. Will SS be around for our kids and grandkids? That's the question.

So....stop treating me like the only thing I care about is about how important it is to kill my babies or prevent pregnancy, Dems. I'm a woman, which means I have a head, a heart, a soul and spirit as well as a womb.....
