Women Hoodwinked By the Democrat Spin Machine
Townhall.com ^ | April 15, 2012 | Susan Brown

I’m a bit disappointed that some of my fellow women have bitten the bait thrown to them by Democratic operatives promoting a so-called “Republican war on women.” I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised, considering all the misinformation being shot in our direction by those who will do anything, hell or high water, to promote their cause.

This whole war on women thing is contrived, by the way. It didn’t exist until a couple of months ago when Democrats most likely realized they needed to do something to regain the female vote. And the next thing we knew, a GOP “war on women” was birthed.

The GOP has never been against birth control. A Republican party standing against contraceptives would be the DNC’s biggest nightmare --because America would be overrun with future conservatives. Pity the thought!

Moreover, a respectable Democrat recently confirmed the “war on women” was made up. During the O’Reilly Factor on April 6, Democrat news analyst Juan Williams described it as “phony” and said, “I mean, you couldn’t make anything up better than the Democrats have done to try to fool women.”

Without a doubt, this con on women was created to distract us from seeing the truth: The Obama administration’s economic policies have caused women to lose ground previously won by women under administrations from both parties. Here’s why:

Information from a July 2011 Pew poll based on Bureau of Labor Statistics data casts Obama’s economic policies in a rather chauvinistic light, considering men have fared much better than women under his leadership. From June 2009 through May 2011, men gained 768,000 jobs and lowered their unemployment rate 1.1 percent, while women lost 218,000 jobs, and their unemployment rate rose by 0.2 percent.

The study found the recovery has “favored men over women in all but one of the 16 major sectors of the economy.” In five sectors, women lost jobs while men gained them. In other sectors, men gained jobs at a faster rate than women and lost them at a slower rate than women. State government was the only sector favoring women.

According to the poll, Obama broke a 42-year record: “The recovery from the Great Recession is the first since 1970 in which women have lost jobs even as men have gained them.” Obama did promise to be a different kind of president.

With Democrats in control for the first two years of Obama’s presidency, all the hype would make one believe women would be advancing across the economic battlefield with boldness. But, just like in war, when your leadership is run by “girlie men,” things don’t end well.

In short, the record-breaking debt racked-up by the Democrat-controlled Congress in Obama's first two years, coupled with job-killing policy upon job-killing policy has hurt us all, and especially women. The exorbitant debt placed upon the backs of America's children and those yet-to-be born is inexcusable. Women in general and single moms in particular, are struggling to get by. The lack of jobs coupled with the outrageous gas and food prices have forced many women to barely survive – even with government assistance. There is no excuse for what has been done.

Although a recent Pew gender gap poll shows women support Obama over the proven job creator Mitt Romney by 20 percent, it’s only temporary. Women are smart enough to figure out there is a job-creating political party that will help them rise above the bondage of a party using them as pawns in their political chess game.

There was a reason that the Bible states woman should not take leadership roles and that woman were not allow to vote at the beginning of the country.

They tend to vote for the bonds (which is a tax) as Democrats constantly say it’s for the children, police. fire fighters and mother earth. Never do they say it is for the unions.

I have to say, IMO women tend to vote a lot more for liberal politicians than do men. Anyone disagree here?
How do we get some of them over that habit?

Someone told me recently that if it weren’t for the 19th Amendment; I would have NEVER seen a Democrat (Communist) in the White House over the course of my entire lifetime. I am nearly sixty.

I tried and tried to get my Lib women friends to see the truth. I would point out, during the Clinton mess, that EVERY WOMAN to accuse him was a DEMOCRAT. They didn’t care. One of my (former) friends even went so far as to admit that she would sleep with Clinton if she had the chance. That is one of the reasons she is a former friend.

When you come down to it, most women, while they say the prefer an intelligent, sensitive, caring man as partner and soul mate, would end up rejecting him and choosing a punk who, more than likely, would treat them like dirt. Until I met my wife, any number of women threw me over for someone who ended up being a punk and an a$$hole who they either divorced or just stuck with like some insane masochist. I met up with one former girlfriend later in life who this happened to and I asked her what happened to that kind, intelligent, sensitive man (i.e., me) she was seeking, and at least she had the intellectual honesty to say she was wrong and chose poorly, but it was too late. This is one of the dichotomies of the "liberation" era that I find many, many people, women especially, would rather not face up to, but instead cover it over with jingoism and platitudes.

Maybe I hang around with the wrong type of women? I don’t know a single one who supports the Obama policies and who, to a person intends to vote for Obama. Of course the women I know are regular, working women - they aren’t attorneys, or stock traders, or women with MBA’s working in high level positions.

I even know some union member women - they aren’t voting for Obama either.

Maybe the one’s who support the Obama policies are the kind who Sex in the City was modeled after. They can’t find a decent mate because they are screwed up in the head so Uncle Sam is as close as they can get.

Am I in the wrong part of the country or something?

They remind me of the battered-women mentality- women who stay with their “bad boy” cause he really didn’t mean to hit her/it’s not his fault/....etc

If we took away women's right to vote, we'd never have to worry about another Democrat president. It's kind of a pipe dream, it's a personal fantasy of mine, but I don't think it's going to happen. And it is a good way of making the point that women are voting so stupidly, at least single women. It also makes the point, it is kind of embarrassing, the Democratic Party ought to be hanging its head in shame, that it has so much difficulty getting men to vote for it. I mean, you do see it's the party of women and 'We'll pay for health care and tuition and day care—and here, what else can we give you, soccer moms?'

“If we allow women to vote it will mean the loss of social structure and the rise of every liberal cause under the sun. Women are well represented by their fathers, brothers and husbands.”

1910-Winston Churchill.

He was correct. Nothing has changed in over 100 years.

power + money = "love."

period. completely unrelated to political affiliation, although the touchy-feely party is definitely a weakness.

While that is 100% true, don't forget that the ultimate catch is a “good guy” that LOOKS like a “bad boy”.
