Dear Readers: This Thursday, I will be joining Silvio Canto on CANTO TALK with my friend Dawn Wildman (President of the SoCal Tax Revolt Coalition). The topic is “The Women’s Vote”. Captain Capitalism and two other of Silvio’s friends will be joining us in a panel discussion during which I hope to prove all women are NOT completely devoid of reason, sanity, or common sense (click HERE for show details, we are on 7 pm PST/9 pms CT).
This post is my way to prepare for specific challenges that Silvio and the Captain have made about how women vote….which leads me to discuss how Team Obama actually views the female voters.
OBAMA IS YOUR MAN — if you are into being treated like a mindless, walking sex toy. Personally, I’m not.
“I told folks I’m just supposed to be eye candy here for you guys,” President Obama said during a back-and-forth about him being the only man on the program. The show’s five co-hosts are women.
I could be cruel and show a picture of Obama in “mom jeans” (click here if you are strong-of-stomach). However, the Goddess is pleased to be merciful and will make some real “eye candy” appear.
So now Obama thinks we women are senseless and well as clueless!
Obama spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter defies all tenets of logic with the following reasoning:
“We’ll continue doing what we have been doing, trying to get the president’s message out on the ground. Whether it’s in the suburban areas of Northern Virginia, or Denver, Ohio, to talk about what the president wants to do in the future. That’s the other thing that you find most often with women. They’re not really concerned about what’s happened over the last four years, they really want to know what’s going to happen in the next four years,” Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said to guest host Susan Page on the Diane Rehm Show today.
Talk about clueless! A MAJORITY OF TEA PARTY LEADERS ARE WOMEN, most of whom started activism in 2009 and have been deeply concerned about these past four years and are extremely worried about the next four if Obama is re-elected. Furthermore, I suspect 2010 will prove to be a more reliable voter model than 2008 — when Women voters shifted Republican in midterm election.
Probably the item of most interest to the theme of this discussion: In the swing state of Michigan, 2012 primary results showed that Republicans garnered almost 50 percent of the female vote. Without that gender gap, OBAMA IS TOAST, AND HE KNOWS IT!!!
To celebrate this bit of news, let’s have more eye candy!
Exhibit 3. Women are sick of being treated like mindless, irrational sex toys, too! A Forbes Magazine Article had this salient point from a female voter in a swing state:
The rhetoric used when talking about appealing to female voters is really frustrating, particularly when people use the word “woo.“ I am from a swing state, though not one of the ones listed as crucial, and I am no more engaged in a courtship with politicians than my fellow male voters. I like that politicians are representing my needs, particularly my need for birth control access. But why it is it framed like such an obscure thing to do: appeal to women, who are, after all, not an interest group, but a little over half the population?
Now this last bit requires a very tasty treat! Allen West to UN: ‘The Angel of Death in the Form of an American Bald Eagle Will Visit You and Wreak Havoc’
In his speech today to the United Nations, President Obama stated six times that the attacks across the Islamic world are attributed to a silly video. Furthermore, he refused to use the words terrorist attack in referring to what occurred in Benghazi Libya at our US Consulate on the 11th anniversary of 9-11. He continues to offer up apologies instead of defending our hard earned First Amendment right to freedom of speech and expression. ….
My statement to the United Nations would have been, “The future does not belong to those who attack our Embassies and Consulates and kill our Ambassadors. The Angel of Death in the form of an American Bald Eagle will visit you and wreak havoc and destruction upon your existence.
Fellow SLOB Word Warrior highlights a great piece from the Wall Street Journal article fisking Obama’s defense on the pathetic 60 minutes interview I mentioned yesterday: Obama’s immortal line on CBS’s “60 Minutes” on Sunday—”I think that, you know, as President, I bear responsibility for everything, to some degree”—is what that degree really is.
When the numbers are tallied, I assert that the women’s vote will prove that there will be negligible: At most, a 4-point spread, as was evidenced in the Michigan primary. Meanwhile, I will conclude with the now trending Twitter topic: #ObamaCandyNames
I LOVE US!!!!!
UPDATE: Via Legal Insurrection’s Professor Jacobson, here is Cole Delaune, who is candy for the eyes and the brain.
