Obama Treating Women Like Breeding Animals

…Abortion and birth control are highly controversial issues, with women divided over their use and funding. Consequently, it cannot be said that they equate to “women’s rights,” which all women have traditionally supported. Additionally, with all of the free women’s clinics around the country, it is ludicrous to claim that access to abortions and birth control is a problem. You can’t drive a couple of miles without seeing a women’s clinic.

By obsessing over a problem that does not exist, it is apparent that Obama is tricking women and distracting them from real issues. The primary issue Obama is concerned about for women is also society’s primary concern about feral cats and wild animals: preventing them from breeding. Instead of being concerned about women’s education, brains, safety, children, or other issues, Obama has fooled women – particularly ditzy celebrities – into thinking that stopping them from breeding is their most important issue.

Using vapid celebrities who don’t really understand politics to blindly repeat Obama’s rhetoric is insulting to intelligent women and frankly embarrassing. They might as well be saying, “I am supporting Obama because he realizes the most important issue for women is stopping us from breeding.” …

‘Binders Full of Women’ vs. White House Women Treated Like ‘Meat’

As a longtime watcher of politics for going on thirty years, I’ve seen both parties and the corrupt media grab hold of some inane nonsense in my time, but this “binders full of women” meme is so inane I actually had to ask around to understand what the corrupt media and the left was on about and why the execrable Carol Costello was labeling it the “Binder Blunder” on CNN.

I’m still not sure I understand it, but here’s the transcript from the debate:

MS. CROWLEY: Governor Romney, pay equity for women.

MR. ROMNEY: Thank you. And — important topic and one which I learned a great deal about, particularly as I was serving as governor of my state, because I had the — the chance to pull together a Cabinet and all the applicants seemed to be men. And I — and I went to my staff, and I said, how come all the people for these jobs are — are all men?

They said, well, these are the people that have the qualifications. And I said, well, gosh, can’t we — can’t we find some — some women that are also qualified?

And — and so we — we took a concerted effort to go out and find women who had backgrounds that could be qualified to become members of our cabinet. I went to a number of women’s groups and said, can you help us find folks? And I brought us whole binders full of — of women. I was proud of the fact that after I staffed my cabinet and my senior staff that the University of New York in Albany did a survey of all 50 states and concluded that mine had more women in senior leadership positions than any other state in America.

Here’s an example of the phony outrage I’m seeing:

Why did the phrase resonate? Because it was tone deaf, condescending and out of touch with the actual economic issues that women are so bothered about. The phrase objectified and dehumanized women. It played right into the perception that so many women have feared about a Romney administration – that a president Romney would be sexist and set women back.

What?

Huh?

Whuh?

Seriously, what in the world are they talking about? The phrase “binders full of women” isn’t even awkward, much less offensive.

Oh, I get it. It’s yet another exhausting nonsense-distraction, and a childish one at that…

…Obama’s record of how women are treated in the White House is objectively appalling. Obama’s own Communications Director, Anita Dunn, described the White House as a “hostile work environment“…

Spin Room Exclusive: Gibbs Mocks Romney’s ‘Binder Full Of Women’ Comment

Immediately after Tuesday night’s debate, campaign spokesman Robert Gibbs began mocking Gov. Romney’s comments about having “binders full of women” to choose from for his gubernatorial administration only after he had directed his staff to be flexible and reach out to women for key positions. Gibbs used the phrase to mock the governor and to begin the meme for the main stream media to take and run with last night mere moments after the debate.

Today all over cable news and on the Internet, you see journalists taking their marching orders and doing Mr. Gibbs bidding by making a controversy over the innocent remark.

 

UpdateThis afternoon we received an email from Kerry Healy on behalf of the Romney-Ryan campaign. You’ll see why this faux controversy about Mitt Romney’s “War on Women” is so disgraceful and dishonest:

Women have become accustomed to strong words from politicians on equality and our role in the world. They are, after all, trying to win our votes. But when Mitt Romney talks about women, when he says he believes that we can do any job a man can do, I know from experience that he’s speaking from the heart.

I served as Lt. Governor with Mitt Romney when he was Governor of Massachusetts. In fact, of the twenty top positions in the Romney administration, ten of them were filled by women, more than any other state in the nation. Romney’s Chief of Staff was a woman – Beth Myers. As we took office, our administration actively sought to recruit the best and brightest women the Commonwealth had to offer. And Governor Romney wasn’t just checking a box. He sought out our counsel, and he listened to our advice. We didn’t always agree, but we were always respected. Mitt Romney didn’t judge the people who were in his administration by their gender. He wanted the best, male or female. There’s no greater evidence that Mitt Romney will represent all Americans than his record of treating all people fairly and impartially. His was a brand of leadership that got things done by bringing people together, not dividing them.

We need that kind of leadership today. People are hurting in this country, and women especially have been suffering. The numbers are stark. Five-and-a-half million women are unemployed. Under President Obama, the number of women living in poverty has climbed to a record high of nearly twenty-six million.

Despite President Obama’s best efforts — and despite his soaring rhetoric — his policies simply haven’t worked. In the two debates we have seen so far, we’ve heard the President give excuses for his disappointments, but we haven’t heard him offer a specific plan or concrete proposals detailing how the next four years will be any different than the last four years.

We can’t afford four more years of the status quo.

What we need is change, and that is precisely what Governor Romney is offering. He has a plan that will create twelve million new jobs, one that will get our economy moving again and lift Americans back out of poverty. He’ll do it by offering strong leadership and by working across the aisle with Republicans and Democrats.

I know that he can accomplish these goals because I have seen him do it before. And when he does succeed, millions of women will have good jobs with rising pay and new opportunities to fulfill their dreams. That is the kind of empowerment and equality that we need now more than ever….

Update 2: NH Democrats think women are helpless twits who need a nanny

It was bad enough Democrats paid for a fake ‘war on women’ rally a few months ago but now they are pushing their lies even further and treating women like they are completely stupid. In a column on October 15th, New Hampshire attorney and National Democratic Committee member Kathy Sullivan not only lied about issues but she actually makes women out to be helpless little sheep who need big strong ‘daddy’ government to take care of them. She also doesn’t seem to understand how insurance companies work or that Obamacare is indeed taking women’s health care decisions out of their control and putting it in the control of government…

Update 3: Media Doesn’t Notice That Obama Told Iowan Women They Were “Well Qualified To Teach”

If you’re a woman, obviously your primary skills are in nurturing, and obviously your best career choice is Teaching. Ladies? I’ve got some good news: Obama has deemed you “well-qualified to teach”…

Update 4: Democrats in a bind to find Romney gaffe on women
