White women are the new angry white men
The Examiner ^ | March 28, 2010 | Jan Tyler

Posted on 04/01/2010 9:11:35 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

55% of Tea Party members are women versus 45% men, according to a Quinnipiac poll released last week. 77% of all of them voted for John McCain, and 88% of them are white.

Barack Obama won the Presidency with the help of black women, as a Pew Center analysis explains. These black women experienced the highest turnout number in history - 66% - matching overall white voter turnout which actually decreased. 95% of black women voted for Barack Obama.

The Sarah Palin phenomenon may have motivated the white Tea Party women, who could significantly impact future elections, since their support of any potential Republican candidate has more room to grow than black women's support of an Obama re-election campaign.

Democrats love to hate Sarah Palin, and with the support of the (LOL!) lame stream media, have contributed to Palin's marginalization. Without the ability to self reflect, there is a blind spot. It is dangerous to proclaim yourself a feminist while being dismissive of any woman. When the coverage is over the top, as it has been with Palin (her child, her intelligence...), there might be a tipping point where the negativity begins to work in Palin's favor.

Almost everyone has labeled the Tea Party movement as angry. What about the media and Democrat's reaction? The debate is sullied so the truth may be more difficult to discern. It may be hard to accept that the majority of Tea Party members are motivated by factors other than anger, or another favorite denigrator, fear.

What if these white tea party women are motivated by a sense of being wronged, betrayed by their government, for whom they did not vote? Disenfrachisement is a favorite rallying cry for Democrats. Could white women feel disenfrachised by the dramatic changes they see taking place?

Are white women feeling oppressed, as white men began to feel as their place in American society was challenged? If white women mobilize behind one candidate and turnout out the vote, the almost 20% differential from 77% (John McCain) to 95% (Barrack Obama) could win an election for Republicans.

Despite the historic performance of Nancy Pelosi in commandeering health care victory for the Democrats, individual Democrats and Obama cabinet members remain curiously chauvinistic.

Democrats have short memories. Remember Larry Summers and his Harvard debacle? Not a good thing to declare women inferior as President of Harvard. Remember Florida Congressman Alan Grayson, not so long ago reported on by Fox News?

"Here I am, the only member of Congress who actually worked as an economist. And she's, this lobbyist, this K Street whore, is trying to teach me about economics."

Don't get me started on Joe Biden, who with Arlen Specter (then a Republican), recalled the Salem witch trials in questioning Anita Hill. Some smart Republican should dig up those old Anita Hill hearing tapes. Even President Obama's dismissive treatment of then rival Hillary Clinton is revealing, and could be used to inspire those white Tea Party women.

Republicans should challenge the overwhelming support women voters have given the Democrats. Do these men even like women? Well, we know about the F-word with Biden and everything, but what do they really think? The Boston Globe reported on Summers' Harvard comments at the time.

This was the point that most angered some of the listeners, several of whom said Summers said that women do not have the same ''innate ability" or ''natural ability" as men in some fields.

The Tea Party women seem confident of their innate, or natural ability. Without being schooled by the Republican opposition, all women could take the popular advice of the best selling author, He's Just Not Into You. Move on not to MoveOn, but to a place where your sheer numbers mean you will get the respect you deserve.

I have 4 kids, too. Three of them will be able to vote for the first time in the 2012 elections. I was pretty excited when I realized that.

You’re correct. My husband did not have the time or interest in looking at the health benefits... every year he always plunks that enrollment package on my desk. Quite aware of what hoops we have to jump through and what has to be paid to take care of our health needs. I would think that women with school age children should be the biggest pool of voters for the right conservative candidate.

Yup.

I don't open the the enrollment envelope. It goes right to my wife.

I’ve been shocked and amazed at women’s reaction to this abuse of power and marxism. I thought they would just go along with “sugar-daddy” state—boy was I wrong. Thank you, American women!

The vast majority of non-hispanic white women are net tax-payers.

They are starting to realize the extent to which THEY, through their taxes, are becoming the "sugar mommies" of the expanding underclass and government employees, and they don't like the idea.

Any of the women I talk to who supports Barry haven’t a clue about what’s going on and aren’t interested. Those who don’t support him are very aware of what’s going on and are terrified for our country.

Looking through a liberals eyes, These typical white womens inherent fear of a black man only proves the Tea Partys racism.

I find that comment ironic and I would say something but this is a family site so I won't say it. :-P

That attitude by the left is such BS. A fellow I work with is not only a great dad and husband, has great work ethic and so easy to work with, he is also my brother in Christ.

They are so hell-bent on calling us racists, when in reality, it’s the left who are not color-blind.

The reason I posted that tongue-in-cheek comment, was because that was how Obama described his own white grandmother. Nothing else.

"the point I was making was not that my grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn’t. But she is a typical white person who, you know, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn’t know, there is a reaction that has been bred into our experiences that don’t go away and sometimes come out in the wrong way."

The Tea Party is a great place for black guys to pick up white women. They might have to fake being conservative, like Michael Steele, but at the very least they should be attractive to that fair number of white women in the Tea Party who voted for the clean and neat Obama. And if you have to fake being conservative and act like you are for conservative causes to date some white women, it’s worth it, right? All the Tiger Woods of the world should take note of this great dating opportunity.

to be honest when I went to see Palin at the TP here in Music City I was sorta surprised to see tha most folks were middle aged or older and of course white and a lot of 50 years plus Christian women...not like that is bad

but I would like a more broad based effort

i don’t think we can do it by ourselves

I’d wager average age was 55

Thanks for ur reply. I consider Sarah a wonderful woman, willing to “ride, shoot straight, and speak the truth.” That doesn’t guarantee a win...
