Obama: Mitt Romney wants to take women back to policies of the '50s

Obama: Mitt Romney wants to take women back to policies of the '50s By Amie Parnes - 08/08/12 04:46 PM ET

President Obama on Wednesday accused Republicans of wanting to take the nation “back to policies more suited to the 1950s than the 21st century” during a campaign stop aimed at securing support from women.

Stumping on a two-day, four-stop swing through Colorado — a state where Obama needs strong turnout from women in November — the president sought to hammer home the benefits his healthcare law includes for families, such as free mammograms and contraception and cancer screenings with no copay.

But the president also emphasized the differences between him and his opponent, Republican presumptive presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who he said would take the Affordable Care Act and “kill it dead” on his first day in office.

“The decisions that affect a woman’s health aren’t up to politicians or insurance companies, they’re up to you,” Obama said during a fiery speech before a crowd of nearly all women.

Targeting Romney specifically, Obama said, “He said he’d ‘get rid of’ Planned Parenthood,” as the crowd booed.

“He joined the far right to support a bill that would allow an employer to deny contraceptive coverage to their employees,” Obama added. “Let me tell you something, Denver — I don’t think your boss should control the care you get. I think there is one person who should make decisions on your healthcare, and that person is you,” the president said.

Obama was introduced to the Denver crowd by Sandra Fluke, the recent law school graduate who wound up at the center of controversy earlier this year after she was targeted by Rush Limbaugh for publicly supporting the administration's contraception coverage mandate.

In brief remarks, Fluke credited Obama, who she said “defended my right to speak without being attacked.

“Mr. Romney could only say those weren’t the words he would have chosen," she said. "Well, Mr. Romney, you’re not going to be the candidate we choose." Fluke also chastised Romney, adding, “we know he’ll never stand up for us and he won’t defend the rights that generations of women have fought for.”

Meanwhile, a new Quinnipiac University/CBS/New York Times poll shows the president trailing Romney 50 to 45 percent in Colorado, a state he won with a 9-point margin in 2008.

Even before the president landed in Colorado to deliver his first speech of the two-day tour, Republican National Committee Co-Chairwoman Sharon Day accused him of “pandering to women today, hoping to distract from the devastating effects Obama policies have had on female voters."

“Today, unemployment among women is higher than when President Obama took office," Day said. "More women are out of work in the Obama economy, and the few jobs that are created go disproportionately to men. Women who manage the household budget are forced to make do with less as grocery store prices rise and wages fall. Mothers are terrified as they see their children’s future mortgaged by reckless government spending.”

Amanda Henneberg, a spokeswoman for the Romney campaign, also weighed in, saying that Obama's "four years in office haven't been kind to women.

"Hundreds of thousands of women have lost their jobs, poverty among women is highest in nearly two decades, and half of recent graduates can't find a job," Henneberg said. "Middle-class families have struggled in the Obama economy and Mitt Romney has a plan to strengthen the middle class and get our country back on the right track."

During his speech, Obama said Romney would take the country backward on women’s issues.

“Let me tell you — there’s nothing conservative about a government that prevents a woman from making her own health decisions,” he said. “Freedom is the chance to determine the care you need, when you need it.”

But the president didn’t just focus on women’s health issues. He also reminded the crowd that he was the one who tapped Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court.

“The next president could tip the balance of the court in a way that turns back the clock for women and families for decades to come,” he said.

He also mocked Romney for not coming forward with a firm answer on equal-pay issues.

“When my opponent’s campaign was asked if he’d fight to guarantee equal pay for equal work, they said ‘we’ll get back to you on that,’” he said.

The medium is the message.
Wimpy Mr. RomneyCARE is preparing to LOSE by doing
nothing day after day.

Fast and Furious - nothing
Chick a fil - nothing
Sea Treaty - nothing
Boy Scouts - worse than nothing.
Every conservative principled issue is missing Mr. RomneyCARE, who DEFENDS socialized medicine.

Mr. RomneyCARE LOST to McCAin who DID NOTHING,
and now he also represents
Death Panels and RomneyCARE/ObamaCARE.

Oh, does he mean when women were moral, modest and married (for the most part) before they got pregnant? I’ll take those policies over his gay marriage, abortion, immorality and immodesty anyday.

This stuff makes my head spin. The 60s, 70s and 80s were all about women being treated equally with men. So now that we’ve pretty much achieved that objective, according to Obama it takes us back to the 50s if we treat women equally by asking them to pay for their own health care, contraception and cancer screening just like men have to.

How much more patronizing and sexist can you get??

No, Obama wants to take women back to the Islamic stone age.

And in other news, our IRS open wallets means there will be a run on the banks, ie. WE ARE THE BANK of AMERICA, and they are going to run on our stuff.

Stick to your guns. THis guys is going to create a crisis and imply all the GOP-E politicians around him to skull screw Gaia itself. He is prepping the whole thing to have “capitalists”, the GOP and as many as possible implicated in his own personal scandal of a pathetic life.

But BOehner and the dum GOP E still have no clue and will blame us, including the Bushes who do not seem quite confident and clean in this from the get go.

Romney, elected or not, is about to walk into a blackmail “racist” trap, too. This is going to go nuclear.

Not all women were better off in the 50s, but most were, and families were in a much better situation.

Now we have two wage earner families, IF the family is still in tact. Kids lose, and so do women.

Nothing rubs the haters on the Left worse than “Father Knows Best” the television show from that era.

“Leave it to Beaver”? Oh man, the inherent racism in that show... cough, cough...

Ahhh yes—the oppressive 1950’s when most women had one husband instead of multiple, shattered families and although she worked hard it was usually at home concentrating on raising kids and tending home instead of working 1 or more jobs just to make ends meet. A whole lot less dykes and tatted up raunchy types too back then. Mother Stanley Ann being the commie exception ay Barcky?

Scare the hell out of Asian with rumors of economic failure like Japan in the 1990s unless we spend more:check!

Scare the hell out of Women by convince them that they will be taken back to the 50’s after 4 years of living in the 30’s:Oh big check on that one!

Romney could quite easily obliterate this charge from the Democrats - by bringing Sarah Palin into his inner circle, making her VP or Secretary of the Interior.

(Note: I believe the Department of Energy should be eliminated and a Bureau of Energy incorporated into the Interior Dept.)

From the article: Targeting Romney specifically, Obama said, “He said he’d ‘get rid of’ Planned Parenthood,” as the crowd booed.

Why would Mitt get rid of Planned Parenthood when...
...he attended a Planned Parenthood event in '94?
...his wife donated $ to Planned Parenthood in '94?
...he pursued abortion industry voters' guides -- two of them -- to be included in 2002?
...he ensured as governor in 2006 that Planned Parenthood would remain part of the "payment policy advisory board" for RomneyCare?

NOTE: Romney could exercise veto power to portions of Commonwealth Care. Did Romney exercise this power? (Yes, he vetoed Sections 5, 27, 29, 47, 112, 113, 134 & 137). What prominent section dealing with Planned Parenthood as part of the "payment policy advisory board" did Romney choose NOT to veto? (Section 3) That section mandates that one member of MassHealth Payment Policy Board must be appointed by Planned Parenthood League of MA. (See chapter 58 of the Acts of 2006, section 3 for details).

Also, Mitt was on and off the board for the Marriott...back on again after pulling out of the POTUS campaign in '08...then guess what corporation that Life Decisions Intl placed on its boycott list for supporting Planned Parenthood?

(That's right...the Marriott)

SAY WHAT?

1878-Democrats Defeat Voting Rights Amendment
Republican Senator A. A. Sargent of California pioneered the 19th Amendment to the U. S. Constitution in 1878. Encouraged by Susan B. Anthony, Sargent’s amendment was also called the Susan B. Anthony Amendment. Unfortunately, a Democrat controlled senate defeated the passage of the amendment four times.

How awful if women could live like the 50s again.

No more sluts giving it away for free. A lot less sex out of wedlock, a lot less abortion, a lot more intact families, a home that was actually run by one adult all day, actual decent fresh home cooked meals, someone to supervise and help kids with homework and discuss issues and problems with....?!?

Yeah it just makes me shudder Barry. Proves this commie faggot Kenyan has no idea about America, no love at all for America, and no idea that he continues to insult America when he says crap like this.

Backfire again, Barry.

If Mitt was smart, he’d say I’d rather take the whole country back to the 1950s than Obama, who wants to take everyone back to the 1800s, and some may say the 7th Century where Sharia law is concerned.

And none of that would be an exaggeration in the least.

It’s easy to lie like this when you know the MSM will back you at any cost.

Barack Hussein Obama said that he would make abortion “more rare”. Obama also said he did not support gay marriage and would defend federal law (Defense of Marriage Act)

Now he has the ultimate government teat sucker, Sandra Fluke, supporting him.

Make no mistake. This is about providing free abortions with our tax dollars. The birth control distraction clouds the true goal. God knows what will happen when women can get unlimited access to abortions.

One thing for sure is that life produced by a man and a woman no longer will have that level of significance that our culture has given it through the ages. Instead the act of creating new life will be secondary to the use of each other’s organs for masturbation.

1950’s policies are the only reason that Barack Hussein Obama survived to be born (1961). I’d hesitate to say 1950’s “values” because Stanley was way ahead of the curve into the 70’s on values. But 1950’s policies held her back from the 1970’s policies that would have sent her”mistake” (Obama’s values/ concept, not mine) swirling down the stream of a D&C. Talk about biting the hand that fed you.

In nearly 40 years living in the same area, I never saw a woman panhandling or holding "Work for food" signs until the Obama economy. And it wasn't just one either.

Women are more fortunate than men in these times. Shelters have a bias towards helping women, government programs have a bias towards helping women, retails jobs have a bias towards hiring women, gaps in employment are less a barrier for job-seeking women, women can find sublets and rooms for rent more easily, men have a bias towards helping women.

It's a crystal clear indication we don't have equality and this is the kind of inequality feminists and progressive like.

True that. I found in the family archives the bill from the hospital where I was born in 1955. My mom stayed 3 days, I was in some kind of special care (breathing difficulties, if I recall what my mom told me), and the sum total of the bill was less than $200.00, paid in full by my father!

Granted, $200 went a lot farther 57 years ago than today, but still!
