the numbers are out and in a surprise to no one but conservatives, it turns out that women do not like being called "sluts":
the biggest change came among women under 50. in mid-february, just under half of those voters supported obama. now more than six in 10 do while romney's support among them has dropped by 14 points, to 30%. the president leads him 2-1 in this group.
republicans' traditional strength among men "won't be good enough if we're losing women by nine points or 10 points," says sara taylor fagen, a republican strategist and former political adviser to president george w. bush. "the focus on contraception has not been a good one for us ... and republicans have unfairly taken on water on this issue." (usa today/gallup)
"unfairly"? well, cry me a river ... one which appears to be roaring right through our favorite wingnut watering hole free republic, where you will never find a more wretched hive of chauvinism and misogyny.
and they're wond'ring where all the wimmenfolk went ...
unfortunately, to some women, especially single ones, government is daddy, husband, lover and provider all rolled up into one. (scottinVA)
but isn't that the model wingnut family? (cue "dueling banjos")
women are "wired" that way.
the 'rats and their mentor, satan, knew what they were doing when they destroyed the support structure called "marriage" and "family".
the title should say "boosted by SINGLE AND DIVORCED women voters..." (mrB)bingo - a lot of the women i know politically are mostly selfish, self centered, ditzes who only care about abortion, birth control, etc. (glockThe Vote)
translation: "they didn't wanna touch my glock!"
why do they keep calling these free contraceptives? someone is paying for them. and are rat women so gullible that they'll vote for a guy who is killing us at the pump, thermostat, grocery store and job market - not to mention the little matter of national security, just to get "free" birth control??? (aria)if these women don't like romney they sure as heck aren't going to vote for santorum. obama's little birth control scheme seems to be working. i think republicans need to do some intense opposition research into obama's donors. the candidates need to start talking about all the dirt that's been coming out on him. make him look like the crooked chicago politician that he is. (jersey117)
riiiiiight. because in four years nobody's tried that yet ...
repeal the 19th amendment. (sharpRightTurn)sure glad we gave them the vote. (dagogo redux)because women vote for appeals to emotion. that is the democrat party's specialty. (longbow1969)
and the GOP's specialty? appeals to idiocy ...
young single women want to go on killing their unborn babies. and now they really believe evil republicans are going to completely ban contraception. the fluke contraception deception worked perfectly. (protectOurFreedom)
tricking rush into a three-day tirade was the easy part. tricking wingnuts into defending him? actually, that was easy too ...
woman — being fooled by snakes since the garden. (bmwcyle)the "war on women" paying dividends.
dems would never win without the woman voter advantage. (tigerClaws)
alas, the unfairness of it all ...
it won't matter -- those ideological women voters are blind to everything except what they want to see, their "vision". by teasing up reproductive issues, obozo is rattling their chains, they just don't know it.
giving women the vote was a civilizational mistake that will kill the republic. women don't want anything like what men do from government, and the republic was constructed around a male electorate. women's brain processes make them the very, very last people anyone anywhere should want next to the levers of republican government, and that's even allowing for real exceptions like margaret thatcher and sarah palin.
overeducated, barren, man-hating democrat women will turn america into a despotate, and then a wasteland -- like something out of hellboy. (lentulusgracchus)
unlike the patriarchal heaven-on-earth that is saudi arabia, or even afghanistan, eh, lentulus?
now i'm pretty sure that free republic, every dittohead's little patch of heaven on the internet, is by no means men-only. i'm pretty sure freeperville has some members that at least have claimed to be female. i'm pretty sure i can remember reading the praises of these culture-war-hardened survivalists for the fierceness and independence of their mothers, mates and daughters. so where are all the wimmenfolk? none showed up today, or more certainly, no one either female or male showed up to crash this little meeting of the "he-man women haters club":
so if not unfettered misogyny, what kind of hate speech proves simply too intolerable for the neanderthals on this thread?
cut it out psycho. santorum can’t be blamed for splitting the vote, but we know who polls lower than rick with women and he is the one with the second fewest delegates.
so cut the hate. (dforest)
... just leave little ricky alooooone!
