There Is No Republican “War on Women,” But there is a “War on Republicans”

by lewwaters

“The Republican War on Women is real, and it’s extremely dangerous. House Republicans are pursuing the most comprehensive and radical assault on women’s health and reproductive freedom in our lifetime,” said DCCC Political Director, Kelly Ward in an April 13, 2012 email.

Democrat Representative for Massachusetts Barney Frank, in a March 31, 2012 email said, “Enough already. Once again, Republicans have voted to destroy Medicare while slashing taxes for Big Oil and Billionaires.”

Vitriolic Democrat strategist James Carville sent out an email blast March 30, 2012 stating, “What’d you do yesterday? Between breakfast and dinner, Republicans in Congress voted to give Big Oil more tax breaks, cut seniors off from their Medicare, and give millionaires even more tax cuts. It’s enough to give you heartburn.”

Former President, B.J. Clinton on March 30, 2012 claimed, “[Republicans would] rather divide America than lead it. Just look at what’s happening now — are we really supposed to believe that women’s rights are getting in the way of job creation?” Uh, yeah Bill, tell that to Monica.

Former Democrat Secretary of State and Ambassador to the U.N. Madeleine Albright claimed in an email dated March 27, 2012, “Here in America, Republicans have launched an all out attack on women’s rights. They’ve targeted women’s health care and are trying to roll back basic rights that most of us thought were won more than a generation ago.”

March 24, 2012 saw an email from Nevada’s Democrat Senator Harry Reid spewing, “Let me be blunt: The only reason Republicans haven’t passed their radical anti-woman, anti-worker agenda – the only reason we’re able to get anything done for the middle class – is that there are more of us than there are of them.”

New Jersey’s Democrat Senator, Frank Lautenberg hit us with, “Republicans are on the march, and if we don’t fight back, they will continue to try to run roughshod over women, the middle class, and seniors. Whether it’s waging war on women’s civil liberties, engaging in an aggressive, dangerous quest to repeal health care reform, or stripping away the safety net, radical Republicans will do it,” March 23, 2012.

These are but a small sampling of dozens and dozens of emails that appear in my throw away inbox, week after week, day after day that Democrats, some we have never even heard of doing what they can to sow seeds of discords amongst American citizens.

As we have seen over the past weeks, they quickly latched onto Rush Limbaugh’s use of the word “slut” in commenting on a female activist pimping herself out in support of taxpayers picking up the tab for her contraceptives. And since Republicans have long wanted abortions halted, many fetuses that are undoubtedly also female that might otherwise have grown into vibrant women, Democrats began their campaign of a “Republican War on Women.”

Now comes Democrat political consultant Hilary Rosen and her “dismissive claim” on presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s wife Ann has “never worked a day in her life,” even though she ran the Romney household for over 40 years and raised 5 sons to adulthood.

Well after the comment ignited a firestorm, she issued an apology saying, “I apologize to Ann Romney and anyone else who was offended. Let’s declare peace in this phony war and go back to focus on the substance.”

Focus on “The substance?” Like the Democrats phony claims in the emails above, some being stated AFTER the call to “declare peace in this phony war?”

Never one to let such a “phony war” subside, wannabe “comedian” and staunch liberal Democrat defender Bill Maher, who donated $1 Million to reelect Barack Obama said on his HBO show Friday, April 15, 2012, “while being a mother is ‘a tough job,’ there is ‘a big difference between being a mother and getting your ass out of the door at 7 a.m. when it’s cold, having to deal with the boss, being in a workplace, where even if you’re unhappy you can’t show it for 8 hours, that is kind of a different kind of tough thing.”

It should be remembered that Bill Maher has a long history of smearing our Troops as well as Misogyny against women that are conservative or Republicans.

While we continue to hear calls for “toning it down” or “civility” from Democrats, there is no condemnation of their “phony war” or acerbic cries demonizing Republicans, male or female. The ends justify the means, just so long as Democrats grab and hold power.

Competition is nothing new between the two major political parties, but it seems to be increasing to a fever pitch coming out of the Democrat Party today. Nothing is sacred to them in their quest for dictatorial powers over the country as they march headlong towards transforming the country to socialism.

How quick they were to claim the horrible shooting of Arizona Representative Gabrielle Giffords was due to conservatives. Or, the Oklahoma City bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in 1995 was because of conservative Rush Limbaugh being on the radio. Both claims made nationally in the lamestream media without one single shred of evidence.

We saw former Democrat Representative from Florida Alan Grayson’s false claims on the floor of the House, “The first part of the GOP approach to health care is: Don’t get sick. If you get sick, America, the Republican health care plan is this: Die quickly.”

And now, once again we see a Democrat, after weeks of false claims of a “GOP War on Women” spewing more hateful falsehoods against those with different values and issuing a call to “declare peace” while they continue attacking.

Republicans, it’s time you woke up, grow some spine and fight fire with fire.

Democrats have no intention of “toning it down” or “declaring peace,” they are on the attack and have been for many years now. They have increased their intensity as they see victory in sight, a victory that will transform our country from a free society to the oppressions of socialism, as seen in the former Soviet Union, China, Cuba and elsewhere.

This is a war! Not a GOP “War on Women,” but a war declared by Democrats against all others in America who do not follow their quest for political power to transform the United States of America into what we were never intended to be, citizens subject to a central government.

  3. I won’t watch Maher for roughly the same reason I won’t watch Letterman: they both treat women like garbage.

    As a result, I can’t find my way to see the humor when it emanates from low-lifes. In an absurd example, it’s kind of like Hitler doing stand up. I just can’t think of anything he could say that would get me past the knowledge that he’s Hitler.

Of course, maybe the girls want fewer females to cut down on the “competition”. I dunno. Then the Queers would be happy if either gender was eliminated.

  7. Most people have little trouble identifying or relating with a culture, socioeconomic group or religion because of shared experiences and beliefs that are endemic to the group. It is amusing to witness a wealthy politician make an effort to relate to a blue-collar construction worker when everyone knows the closest the politician probably ever came to construction work was phoning a contractor to solicit bids to build their mansion’s gymnasium, or car elevator. Throughout the long Republican presidential primary, Willard Romney has attempted to identify himself as a regular guy who understands the working class, but regardless taking his tie off and donning denim pants, there is the iconic photo of him sitting next to a private jet while he receives private security screening and avoids an average Americans’ wait to go through airport security. Romney’s problem identifying with any group other than the ultra-elite of the top 1% of income earners must run in the family because his spouse, Anne, displays the same failing in attempting to identify with the majority of women in America.

    The faux outrage over Democratic National Committee adviser Hilary Rosen’s out-of-context statement that Mrs. Romney “has actually never worked a day in her life” is typical electoral pandering by the Romney camp, and is probably an attempt to make up for some of the damage Willard’s positions have caused to his support among women. Admittedly, taken in and of itself, that phrase may be offensive to women who are fortunate enough to stay home and raise children. However, Rosen’s comment was not an indictment or criticism of women who are stay-at-home moms, but it does indict Mrs. Romney’s assertion that she can relate to average American women. She, like her elitist husband, has no idea of the struggles the average American experiences every day and she is a pandering elitist just like her husband, and Hilary Rosen called it correctly.

    “What you have is Mitt Romney running around the country, saying, ‘Well, you know, my wife tells me that what women really care about are economic issues, and when I listen to my wife, that’s what I’m hearing.’ Guess what? His wife has actually never worked a day in her life. She’s never really dealt with the kinds of economic issues that a majority of the women in this country are facing, in terms of how do we feed our kids, how do we send them to school, and why do we worry about their future.”

    Rosen was not demeaning women who stay at home, and she was not reviving the working versus stay-at-home mom controversy that is itself ridiculous. There are few people who think staying home spending every waking (and often sleeping) minute caring for, cleaning up after, and raising children is anything but a grueling, but rewarding, experience. However, Mrs. Romney’s stay-at-home experience is nothing like the average American woman, and although she may worry about her 5 sons’ futures, her concern is how they avoid paying taxes on the multi-million dollar inheritances after their parents die.

    There are tens-of-millions of women in America who would love to be in Mrs. Romney’s position whether they stay at home or work. For most women, though, staying home is an economic as well as physical and mental struggle to make ends meet from paycheck to paycheck if she,her husband, or both are fortunate enough to have a decent-paying job. With most families requiring two-incomes to survive, the choice of staying home is not a choice at all. Mrs. Romney cannot possibly comprehend a woman with young children having to take on a part-time job to buy groceries, clothing, and if they’re really fortunate, an occasional visit to the dentist for their children. The other day Willard was unaware cameras were rolling and said his wife was taking a couple of days to ride her horse as a break from the campaign. The average woman with children at home may take a couple of hours’ break to shop for groceries at the local Wall Mart, and if they saved their tip money from their waitress job, maybe buy clothes for the baby.

    The Romney’s will never relate to the average American’s economic struggles and regardless how often they talk about it or talk to average Americans about it, their world is as far removed from working-class America as the Earth is from Saturn. They are not even in the same universe as the working poor or poverty level Americans. Most Americans live from paycheck to paycheck, and for women, whether they stay at home or work, the struggle to make ends meet before the next payday is as stressful as caring for young children. The challenge for many women who stay home but want to supplement the family income is earning enough from a part or full-time job to cover child-care, and how to coordinate a work schedule with a school-age child’s schedule. The true economic struggle for millions of women is her children’s day-to-day survival, not her children’s trust fund.

    Millions of women would love to stay home and maybe take a few days’ off for horseback-riding therapy, but they are not in the position to ever make that choice and they never will be. Mrs. Romney certainly has worked one day in her life, probably hundreds, but making cookies for the kids or scolding the maid for mixing colors with whites in the laundry is not the same as stretching last week’s groceries to make it to next week’s payday. Hilary Rosen simply highlighted that Mrs. Willard is unaware of the financial hardships women face as their family income falls, they lose a job, or struggle to pay for her children’s yearly medical checkup, and that is the point. How can out-of-touch Mrs. Romney counsel out-of-touch Willard on women’s economic problems if neither of them knows what an economic problem is? They cannot and that was Ms. Rosen’s point.

    Mrs. Romney may have been insulted by Rosen’s remark, but the insult to most American women is she has the temerity to think her definition of “work” is remotely like an average woman struggling to feed her children on a limited income. Rosen made a good point and if her critics had taken the time to read her entire comment, they may have withheld criticism in spite of the Romney campaign’s phony outrage, and it certainly is phony. If any American thinks Mrs. Romney really believes she understands what it means to be an average American woman, they are deluded as much as the Romneys.

    Instead of condemning Hilary Rosen, Democrats should commend her for bringing an important point to the issue of whether or not Willard understands women’s economic concerns. Just because Romney’s wife tells him that “what women really care about are economic issues,” it does not mean that either of the wealthy elitists understands women’s economic issues any more than a fish understands the theory of relativity. What Willard and Ann Romney understand is how to conceal their enormous wealth to avoid paying taxes, horses, and car elevators that must be hard work to operate.

  9. Wow Bob, you should open your own blog, after that novel. At first I thought you had come to your senses and were describing why you have turned away from Obama, since your first paragraph along describes Obama to a “T.” And, he’s been proving how out of touch he is over the last 3 years and some months, plunging the country deeper and deeper into despair.

    But alas, I see you pick up the everyday standard bearer of the left by claiming Hilary Rosen’s words were, as we always expect, “taken out-of-context.” Seems every time ya’ll are caught with your pants down, it is always the cry of “mischaracterized” or “taken out-of-context.”

    Nobody but you liberals buy that one any longer, Bob, been too over used.

    As for “running around the country” and trying to stand on his wife, did not Obama do the same to entice Blacks to actually believe he is blacker than his mildly tan skin tone? What real experience does he have as a poor inner city Blackman, growing up in an upper middle class White Household in Hawaii?

    His White grandfather even had to make a conscious effort to expose him to a few Black people, who unfortunately, also do not fit the typical genre of American inner-city Black people.

    And in fact, what would Michelle even know about it? She too didn’t exactly grow up in the ghettoes of Chicago, as was exposed in the 2008 article, Mrs O: The truth about Michelle Obama’s ‘working class’ credentials.

    Of course, since there is no real interest in actually investigating claims by any other than Republicans in American leftwing media, we need to seek truth abroad.

    Strange how Obama too has never worked with his hands, but I lauded as a hero of the middle class, even though the middle class suffers much more under his regime than since the Great Depression of Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt’s day. But, why quibble about such minor uncomfortable facts?

    Seems your effort to strain gnats is not quite adequate either. Rosen is not demeaning women by her slap at Ann Romney, but Rush was demeaning all women by labeling one who wanted taxpayers to fund her contraceptives? Is that how it works? Never let a good crisis to go to waste?

    Or is right out of Saul Alinsky’s book, Make opponents live up to their own book of rules. “You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.”

    Keep the pressure on. Use different tactics and actions and use all events of the period for your purpose. “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. It is this that will cause the opposition to react to your advantage.”

    Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, polarize it. Don’t try to attack abstract corporations or bureaucracies. Identify a responsible individual. Ignore attempts to shift or spread the blame.

    Is that it, Bob? Circle the wagons to protect any Democrat no matter what, while taking any opportunity to exaggerate and blast any perceived offense by any Republican? Then feign outrage when the curtain is peeled back on Democrats and try to ridicule and poo poo your way out of it?

    Not to worry though, we know Obama actually loves stay at home Moms. After all, he turned a lot of working women into stay at home Mom’s 😉

    A little diddy for you: Winning the War Against Women

    You talk about Romney concealing his massive wealth. If it is concealed, how do you know it is there?

    And, how much has BHO’s and MO’s International Vacations cost us? And as usual, when it was shown that daughters Malia and Shasha were listed as “Senior Staff” on MO’s South Africa trip, costing taxpayers nearly $500,000 for the “private Safari,” what do we see but the White House claiming, just as I said above, the trip manifest was “misconstrued and out of context.”

    How quaint.

    I’ll end it with something more for you to consider, Bob. Consider how it is okay and even you excuse Rosen’s words on Mrs. Romney, as well as Sarah Plin, Michelle Malkin, Michelle Bachmann and many others and then look at how Democrats treat and react to Blacks that don’t follow lock-step with the liberal Democrat agenda.

    If they oppose Obama, automatically they are “Uncle Tom’s,” sell outs, House slaves, you name it.

    And you all claim to be “diverse?”

    Is it a case of you’re diverse, just so long as everybody remains in lock-step and doesn’t think for themselves?

    Aren’t women and Blacks allowed a thought different than the Party’s?

For all of the rhetoric coming out of the Obama regime on secretaries pay more tax than their wealthy bosses and are paid less than men, that they keep saying they will fix, why do we also read that females in the Obama White House are paid some 18% lower wages then men?

    And, how did it happen that Barack Obama paid less in taxes than did his secretaries?

    Isn’t that part & parcel of this bogus “War on Women” rhetoric coming out of the White House and DNC Headquarters these last weeks?

    How a person debates is secondary to me. I look at how they lead and what they decide.

    I don’t think Sarah Palin would make a good president, but she is far from “stupid” too.

    I find it ironic how so many Democrats hold up the 90’s as a great decade under Clinton, ignoring that for the most part of his administration he had a Republican Congress in both Houses.

    Yet, when it was reversed in January 2007 and things began going south, Blame Bush.

    When Democrats took the White House and had complete control of Congress, blame Bush.

    Democrats still have the White House and the Senate and what do we see? Blame Bush and the Republican House.

    Will Democrats ever accept responsibility for their own errors?

    Look how long our state has been under the total control of Democrats in Olympia and how poorly the state is doing.

    What do we hear? It’s never the Democrats fault. Again, blame Bush and the Republican minority.

    If you wish to address loyalty, it’s right there in your party who grabs credit, even when not due, but never accepts any blame and just continues down the same path to ruin.
