President Obama is the first black president and that is the main reason the media won’t call him out for his constitutional overreaches and it’s why the GOP has been silenced. The American public is afraid to criticize him for fear of being called racists. If people think the U.S. Senate will impeach the first black president, they’re mistaken. It won’t happen.
It won’t be any different if we elect the first woman president.
If you think the attacks on the GOP for allegedly warring against women were over-the-top, wait until they or anyone tries to criticize Mrs. Clinton. She’s a tough-as-nails woman but it won’t matter. She will be painted as the the very embodiment of true womanhood.
Birth control, abortion, equal pay are all part of the manufactured war on women and will only grow worse under Hillary. Lily Ledbetter will be paraded before the public again and again.
The entire manufactured war on women will reach a fever pitch.
When Rep. West lost his temper in a private letter to the tyrannical Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, it was cited as a prime example of the GOP war on women. He was actually trying to treat her as an equal. When talk show host, Rush Limbaugh jokingly used poor terminology to describe Sandra Fluke, it was the GOP war on women. When Rick Santorum said he didn’t believe in birth control, it was the war on women and the absurd idea that birth control would be banned by the GOP took hold.
Rick Santorum is a religious Catholic who doesn’t believe in using birth control. He has never tried to force his beliefs onto the country but the truth doesn’t matter. He was painted as warring on women for his beliefs.
When George Stephanopoulos questioned Mitt Romney during one of the presidential debates, he asked him, “But I do want to get that core question. Governor Romney, do you believe that states have the right to ban contraception? Or is that trumped by a constitutional right to privacy?”
By the time Romney recovered enough to answer the question, it was too late, his answer was too hesitant by a second or two and the war on women had begun.
Reince Priebus, RNC Chair said, “If the Democrats said we had a war on caterpillars and mainstream media outlets talked about the fact that Republicans have a war on caterpillars, then we have problems with caterpillars.”
That statement was turned into an attack on Mitt Romney by the Democrats. Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said in a statement, the comment “shows how little regard leading Republicans, including Mitt Romney, have for women’s health. Women are already abandoning the Republican Party in droves because of their antiquated positions on women’s health and out-of-touch policies on the middle class. Reince Priebus’ comments today only reinforce why women simply cannot trust Mitt Romney or other leading Republicans to stand up for them.”
The entire GOP was painted as a party that minimizes the plight of women. Never mind the absurdity of people acting as if he was comparing women with caterpillars.
When Republicans tried to pass the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act” (H.R. 7), it was the war on women and the GOP tampering with women’s healthcare.
Recently, when Mike Huckabee tried to call them out for it, he said, “For Democrats to reduce women to beggars for cheap government-funded birth control is demeaning to the women I know who are far more complicated than their libido and the management of their reproductive system.”
That was twisted into Huckabee saying women can’t control their libido. Jay Carney made a point of saying it was insulting to women. When Huckabee tried to explain his comment, the media said it was his latest libido view; Huckabee explains the meaning of libido; and Huckabee pretends the media is lying about his quote.
His statement was actually supportive of women, the media knew that, but the media used it against the entire GOP anyway.
Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers had a different take on the faux war on women in 2012.
“Democrats know that Republicans won the women’s vote in 2010,” Washington Republican Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers said in an interview with The Daily Caller. “It was the first time in modern history that Republicans won the women’s vote and the Democrats know that in order to win the presidency, in order to win the House or the Senate, they can’t let that stand. They are desperate and they are manufacturing this war on women. It’s a hoax.”
McMorris Rodgers said that the entire premise of the “war on women” is to distract Americans from the real issues — namely, the economy, gas prices and Obamacare.
The manufactured war hasn’t stopped though it’s taken somewhat of a backseat while the media concentrates on alleged racism.
Democrats have successfully reduced women’s health to issues of free birth control and abortion.
Mr. Obama is off for his 23rd vacation since being president. He truly is fiddling while the country burns. Because he is the first black president, he can, as he said, “do whatever he wants.” Imagine what a woman president could do.
Listen to what some think of Mr. Obama’s government overreach:
The media ignores or approves of Mr. Obama’s imperial presidency. Imagine what they will do for the first woman president.
We need to stay away from iconic candidacies and historic firsts for a while if we hope to salvage our Constitution and our Republic.
