Missing: Women‏

I don't as a rule, share emails, but this one is just too important not to. You can click on the "READ MORE", to see the proof of comments.

“Where are the women?” With those four words, Rep. Carolyn Maloney
(D-NY) made the most poignant statement of the week about the House
GOP’s attitude towards women. The simple answer to Maloney’s question is
that women are being callously left out and left behind by the right

According to a recent Democracy Corps survey, there’s been a net
18-point swing away from Mitt Romney in favor President Obama among
unmarried women in the past few months. Why? Because women have been
watching and listening to conservatives. Here’s a sampling of what we
heard just this past week:

GOP Chairman Darrell Issa defending the exclusion of a woman from his all-male panel on contraception: She’s not “appropriate and qualified.” [Read more]

Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld explaining why “liberals” support contraception coverage: “It’s more about getting rid of the poor.” [Read more]

Right-wing billionaire Foster Friess delivering his
contraception advice on MSNBC: “You know, back in my days, they used
Bayer Aspirin for contraceptives. The gals put it between their knees
and it wasn’t that costly.” [Read more]

Virginia Republican Delegate Todd Gilbert
rationalizing a state-sponsored bill mandating vaginal probes: A woman
already consented to being “vaginally penetrated when they got
pregnant.” [Read more]

Fox News’ Liz Trotta justifies why some women are assaulted in the military: “Now what did they expect?” [Read more]

Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association on women in combat: “Women are not wired, either by evolution or by God…to be in those positions.” [Read more]

Rick Santorum explaining his concerns about women in
combat: “People naturally may do things that may not be in the
interests of the mission because of other types of emotions that are
involved.” [Read more]

At least they’re being honest about what they feel.

    I'm sure Foster Friess does not worry about birth control because he can't get it up.
    There should be a law passed in Virginia that for any man to get a script of Viagra or other erectile dysfunction drug, they must go to a proctologist, get the finger up the butt and see if there is some other reason they can't get it up.
    Bryan Fischer is the epitome of white heterosexual men are the only ones blessed by some god and should make all the decisions.

    This is freaking ridiculous. Republicans are actually standing up for freedom and all the women that ruthless and heartless democrat women kill simply to avoid any sort of personal responsibility. Look, the democrats have socialized businesses and are now dictating down to their very basic HR functions. What the hell business is it of Obama or anyone to force private businesses to do anything. Employees CHOOSE where they work. If it is important enough for them, they will hold out for an employer that covers it. This has nothing to do with women's rights. Theses are not government controlled businesses. I am not going to work for Peta and demand they buy me steak.

    You idiot, we are not pro abortion, we are pro choice. We want to say what happens to our bodies and yes, at times that does mean abortion, but it should be and legally IS OUR decision It has EVERYTHING to do with women's rights. .

    Me being forced to pay for your recreational drugs is about my rights to not have you thieves steal from me. Why is that so freaking hard for you selfish nimrods to comprehend? Your choice is to buy condoms of birth control with your own money. If you gave a damn about anyone's choice you sure as hell would be all for your birth control. 2nd , the innocent children you murder have no choice in the matter. Per the declaration of independence, they have the specific right to life. You are making the argument that I should have the choice to be a cereal killer.

    Wow...making a woman have an ultrasound in order to have an abortion. Unbelievable. No wonder many are shouting for the GOP to stay out of their girly parts. They literally ARE trying to get in there! To undergo a vaginal ultrasound, one has to drink a lot of water ahead of time to get a good picture, then a probe is used during the procedure. Normally not bad if you have a kind and caring technician, but can you imagine if the technician were a typical self righteous anti -woman radical? The minute they heard that their patient was there.for an abortion, it could definitely become rape with a foreign object. And just who is going to pay for this unnecessary medical procedure? Oh, it'll be tacked on as an extra charge with the abortion.

    With apologies to Helen Reddy, lets hear you roar, ladies. Oh, screw the needless apology. Roar your respective butts off ladies! The Repubs are so tone deaf they won't even hear you. But they will hear your vote in 2012 as they're cleaning out their former offices in DC.

    What's seems painfully clear is the Repubs, besides wanting to overturn Roe v. Wade, now wish to re-litigate the 45 yr old birth control debate. Much as they're marching ingloriously backwards with regard to science and education, they now wish to recreate their selective memories of the 1950's and the non-idyllic days of Father Knows Best. Remember conservatives, that was a TV SHOW and NOT REALITY THEN or NOW.

    I hope some of those loyal repug. idiots get a wake up call on all the garbage the GOP are doing to women in their campaigns. All those citizens who bad mouthed Obama should be seeing him in a different light now.

    Nice job of avoiding those fact based and pesky no--win questions I asked you. And way to then change the subject. Typical of rt wing nuts.

    Or were you talking about "500,000 jobs created or saved per month" like Joe Biden said?
  • Tedster Charles... 2012/02/21 18:23:26 (edited)
    Try to get this? Since Obama's been in office government jobs have gone DOWN by 500k. Just look at last months job's growth. There were 257,000 new private sector jobs and a decrease of 14,000 public sector jobs totaling 243k. Got it now? Probably not.

    I'll be happy to argue any issue you like point by point but it will necessitate you understanding what facts are? And just because you don't like them doesn't do anything to make them untrue. Unpopular perhaps, but not untrue. If you think you've got a case to make, make it. Otherwise, you need to stfu.

    Whats killed the republican party is Jerry Farwell, Pat Robertson and James Dobson. In other words, the evangelical right-wing. Christianity is all about male domination and female suppression. It's no wonder the GOP has embraced this type of thinking.

    stand up against the war on women
