Obama’s War On Women
August 24, 2012 3 Comments
It appears that the Democrats want to turn their Convention into a giant GOP war on women whine fest. We really shouldn’t blame them, if the Republicans were in their position we would be trying to run from the economy as well. These people really believe they’re going to swing the election on the issue of abortion. Apparently Todd Akin, until this week an obscure no one ever heard of him outside of Missouri Congressman, is going to be their center focus. As though Akin speaks for the entire GOP. Meanwhile the Democrats are allowing Bill Clinton, the harasser of Kathleen Willey, Juanita Broaderick, Gennifer Flowers and Paula Jones, to introduce Obama. But it’s the Republicans who hate women!
Apparently the GOP hates women. Sen. Barbara Boxer says we don’t like our mothers or our first wives. Apparently we were supposed to take Boxer’s comments seriously. We should rejoice though that the Democrats are going to try to turn this campaign into a battle over abortion. Nothing could be better for the Republicans for any number of reasons. Let’s begin with Obama’s radical position on abortion. He doesn’t believe in any restrictions whatsoever on abortion. In the Illinois state senate he voted to allow doctors to kill babies born alive via botched abortions. Meanwhile the Republicans have nominated a johnny come lately to the pro-life side, someone who hasn’t made any waves on the issue. Go ahead, make the campaign about abortion. Romney will keep talking about the economy while Obama spends his time talking about killing late term babies.
No doubt the Democrats will want to talk ad nauseum about Obamacare’s contraception mandate. But even that is a loser for Obama. People don’t like the idea of government telling religious institutions they have to pay for contraception or abortions. People in this country still believe in religious freedom. If a war on women means Republicans expect women, and men for that matter, to pay for their own birth control, that’s a losing war for the Democrats. Especially when the economy is in the tank. People are more concerned about whether they’ll have a job next week. They aren’t much concerned over who is going to cover their $5 a month worth of birth control pills.
If you want to talk about a war on women, we need only look at the economy. There are 780,000 more unemployed women today than when Obama took office. Median household incomes have fallen nearly 5% since the recession ended, nearly double what they fell during the recession itself. That effects women more than men as women tend to control the household budget, especially the legion of housewives who aren’t interested in outside employment. Under Obama corn and soybeans have reached record high prices, which effects housewives and working women. Families have had to cut back on food expenditures or cut back on other things in their lives to pay for food. Obama of course refuses to eliminate ethanol subsidies, so we’re burning half of our corn via our cars. He also bought millions of pounds of meat to keep meat prices high, hurting families across the country.
It’s the Democrats who are waging war on women and in fact waging war on all of us. Obama is fundamentally transforming America into a giant welfare state, where job and economic growth is minimal. Obama wants to make the campaign about abortion, only the most ideological leftists think that’s the most important issue facing the country. Obama’s war on women goes far beyond abortion, his economic policies have hurt women more than men. His policies have increased inflation and increased the price of food. Nothing affects the family, women in particular, more than the price of household goods increasing. Yet Obama is unconcerned, continuing to promote ethanol and high meat prices. War on women? It’s not the Republicans waging war, it’s Barack Obama and the Democrats.
