I just read through all the other comments. Interesting that there's almost no mention of the economy! In any prior race, ALL arguments would point to the economy. Not any more. Now it's all peripheral issues. We are doomed.

The women's vote only went to Obama by 4% points, free birth control in exchange for vastly higher premuims will hurt more women than paying $9 a month for birth control through a tax free flex spending account. Lilly Ledbetter was for trial lawyers not women, and businesses will be much more reluctant to hire women except for very carefully proscribed positions with clearly deliniated hourly wage levels. Congratulations on setting women back to the stone age.

right, suz-women need someone else to pay for their birth control because they're too helpless-this is what women's lib has come to? I'm disgusted. I've always thought that women were capable of providing for themselves and acting responsibly so they don't get pregnant when they don't want to-thereby avoiding the need to murder a baby. Apparently I've been giving my fellow females too much credit.

There's alot more at stake for this country than your narrow issue of abortion. As if that is going to be outlawed anyway. Roe v Wade has been around for 40 years and it has never been remotely threatened. And in any case, even if it were to be overturned, it would just mean that it would be left up to the individual states. You show that women are stupid and easily manipulated to vote over such a non-issue.

As for women's rights, you support a party that has embraced the most anti-woman ideology, islam, and a you support a president that facilitated islamic revolutions in the Mideast where women suffer under brutal sharia law.

I assure you that women's reproductive choices ARE an economic issue to women. In fact they are a foundational issue to women. The fact that the Republican Party doesn't acknowledge that is telling and explains much about why women vote as they do.

Wednesday wasn’t “good morning” in the GOP. President Obama won a second term. Republicans deserve the shellacking we got because the party of Lincoln is running candidates in 2012 like it’s 1860. Old white men just don’t cut it anymore and are not reflective of the changing demographics of the country. America is browning up not whitening up, as evidenced by the US Census findings that minorities will make up 54% of the population by the year 2050.

Americans didn’t buy what the Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was selling because he was the wrong messenger for a growing ethnically...
