Skip to comments.Flashback: Obama War on Working Women Began With Palin
Posted on 04/18/2012 9:37:17 PM PDT by hope
When reporters asked about Bristol Palin in September 2008, candidate Barack Obama promised that candidates' family lives were off limits and said that he would fire anybody in his campaign who violated that rule.
But three days later, Howard W. Gutman, a member of his finance committee, told a national audience that Sarah Palin had put her career before family on The Laura Ingraham Show:
This has nothing to do with gender, whether Todd Palin was the nominee or Sarah Palin was the nominee. If my daughter had just come home at 17 years old and said, Mom, Dad, Im pregnant, we have a family problem, I wouldnt say, You know what were going to do? Were going to take this private family problem and you know what Im going to do? Im going to go on the international stage and broadcast this to the world.
This wasnt a working mother issue, this was a parent issue
The proper attack is not that a woman shouldnt run for vice president with five kids, its that a parent, when they have a family in need, a Downs baby who needs them mother or father.

Let’s bring this F&(*&&@^ to his knees.
You know, the ultimate legacy for me is not that Obama and his media minions did all they could to destroy Palin, dehumanize her, personally bankrupt her, character-assassinate her, slime and defame her children and family, accuse her of being a part of a mass-murder, write books accusing her of basically being a crack-whore, spend millions on a Hollywood movie to depict her as a retarded diva, and all the rest...
No, the lingering legacy for me is the way the GOP didn’t lift a finger to defend her, and in many cases, actually piled on. Three decades of being a staunch Republican, honed on the revived patriotism from back in the days of Reagan, nothing managed to thoroughly wipe out my opinion of the GOP like the abject cowardice and disloyalty that was served up towards Palin. Especially after she worked like blazes fighting Obama’s agenda in the earliest days when few others would, coupled with her massive efforts to get Republicans elected in 2010. I can’t feel anything but absolute disgust towards the GOP nowadays, and now that they have added to it by pushing a Massachusetts liberal as nominee, I just don’t want to have anything to do with the damned bastards.
Well said! This is why Im no longer a Republican. I registered as an Indie a while back after 33 years as a Republican.
This is why the Republican Party is dead to me.
I will not donate.
I will not support the candidates they ‘push’ on us.
The Republican Party declared a ‘war on women’ when they failed to defend Palin against outrageous and grossly sexists attacks.
My sentiments as well. Good post IMO. Thanks for that.
