This past week the "progressive" left laid claim to the women's vote of 2012.
They intend to compete for the hearts and minds of women.
They intend to win the votes of women, and they will lie, confuse, and mislead if necessary to do so.
In short the left believe that the women's vote in America is something they can manipulate devoid of fact.
More pathetically they believe women in droves will cascade with them over the cliff into the insanity the left offers--all the while attempting to convince them they are truly on their side.
To the left, women are just another group, like ethnicities, and sexual identities, that they believe they can victimize--then rescue, all in the matter of the twenty-second soundbite.
They've even recruited women to do it--case and point--Democratic Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who recently assumed control of the DNC.
I've watched Schultz on her pundit hits on cable news, and have never really been very fascinated by any of the victimology ideas she has to peddle. Now that she speaks for the entirety of her party however, her words become seemingly more important. This last week she laid her strategy bare:
“It’s just so hard for me to grasp how they [Republicans] can be as anti-woman as they are,” she said. “I think that the pushback and the guttural reaction from women against the Republicans’ agenda out of the gate, the war on women that the Republicans have been waging since they took over the House, I think is not only going to restore but help us exceed the president’s margin of victory in the next election."
So Republicans are at war with women? Really?
Then why are the most reliable voting block for the GOP - married moms? What... Do they not count?
Schultz is a life long politician, she studied political science in college, worked on getting elected, and now brings home enough pork to keep the district coming back to vote her back in year after year. She has been married to the same man for twenty years, and in liberal political circles--that's a lifetime. She is also the mother of three children and from every outward sign seems to be pretty good at it.
Yet my mind wonders, "How is it that liberals get to constantly make these crazy statements like, 'the GOP is at war with women?'"
I know personally I'd never tangle with women where the area of war is concerned. Women like K.T. McFarland--who was the civilian equivalent of a three star general in her Pentagon days--nope, wouldn't take her on.
