War on Women Absurdity: Liberals Claim Romney Will Ban Tampons
Life News ^ | October 10, 2012 | Steven Ertelt

Posted on 10/10/2012 2:48:19 PM PDT by NYer

The so-called War on Women meme liberals and abortion advocates have been pushing against pro-life advocates and presidential candidate Mitt Romney has jumped the shark even further.

Now, as the conservative Twitter watchdog web site Twitchy reports, liberals are now accusing Romney of wanting to ban tampons. Here are a sample of a few of the tweets Twitchy found today.

* “did I really just hear romney wants to eliminate tampons bc it’s unnatural for a woman to shove a foreign object up her!? #goobama”

* “romney wants to stop sellin tampons bc its “unnatural for a woman to insert a foreign object in her body to stop the menstrual flow”

* “Hey Romney why don’t you sit in your own blood and filth for a few hours and tell me why tampons should be illegal”

It turns out that the pro-abortion activists upset with Romney fell for a fake “news story” on the satire news web site Free Wood Post. As the folks at Twitchy note:

Once again, the liberal brain trust has bought into an absurd hoax. This one appears to have started with a satire article published months ago at the Free Wood Post. The site is headed with the tag line “news that’s almost reliable” and has a satire disclaimer right up at the top. But for many GOP haters, this quote was too good to check.

 

It is unnatural for a woman to insert a foreign object into her body for the sake of stopping the menstrual flow. I, as well as several others seek to eliminate the sales of such objects. Women should let nature take care of itself the way that our Almighty Creator intended. To try to manipulate and control such an occurrence goes against God’s plan for women.

Of course, that quote was attributed to Rep. Darrell Issa in the Free Wood Post’s satire piece. But like satire, reading is hard.

This new War on Women antic follows one from the Obama campaign, which came under fire for saying women should vote with their “lady parts.” Now the status of women has been reduced further by Obama backers.

That is a great analogy.

Romney eats $hit sandwiches for breakfast.

It must be true, I saw it on the internet. Furthermore, I’m dating a French model, he told me so on the internet.

I'm not sure even the privacy of the voting booth is enough to vote with your "lady parts".

Don’t these libtards know that tampons aren’t green? If algore or Barry wanted to ban tampons for this reason, these hags would swoon with extacy! They would hold knitting circles and make reusable tampons for the sake of mother earth.

Great analogy!
When I was young there was a telephone number that people could call and for some reason the switching mechanism was bad at the phone company. As a result whenever you call that telephone number you would be connected to a whole bunch of other people who were using the same number to communicate through what we called “the pipeline.”
It was like an early form of Twitter. This all took place approximately 1962 or 63.

Forget about tampons. How about Obama’s ties to those misogynistic rappers and hip hop scum bags. Talk about a war on women! I’ll never understand why he gets a pass on this. I suppose it’s “hip” to call your mothers, sisters, daughters, and grandmothers bitches and hoes. What the hell’s wrong with our “culture”? For Pete’s sake, Jay-Z was a White House guest!

Remember the "killer tampons" that dried women out so much they developed deadly infections?

There was a RECALL. The company, and the CDC were both so desperate for quick action they turned to the Postal Service to make what arrangements they could make to get all the unused ones OUT OF SERVICE and back into the company's hands.

I'm the guy who did that ~ not Obama, not some woman ~ ME! I saved American womanhood ~ LITERALLY.

I've never forgotten the experience.

Just tell a lib that it’s true. The TSA and a host of other armed federal agents will be enforcing the rule.

Then ask them about their opinion of the second amendment.

We called them 'party lines'. We had them in rural Texas because it was too expensive to run individual lines to homes, so they ran one line that had individual numbers for each home. (At least that's the way I understood it)

Folks were known to pick up the phone at random times just to listen in on other people's conversations. Maybe that's why people in small towns always knew everybody else's business! LOL!

That was them.

They worked “too well” and never leaked, thereby encouraging some of the more biologically oblivious women to leave them in for unhealthy lengths of time.

They were like little Petri dishes with strings.
