Ann Romney is doing her best to help her husband with his problem with women voters. It’s nice that she’s trying to help him but it’s not nice when she evidently thinks women are idiots and that she can lie to them with every intention of trying to take their right to a informed decision away.
A CNN article had some of these quotes in it:
“”Women, you need to wake up,” she told the largely female audience at a “Women For Mitt” rally in Findlay, Ohio. “Women have to ask themselves who is going to… be there for you. I can promise you, I know that Mitt will be there for you, he will stand up for you, he will hear your voices, he knows how to fix an economy, he’s a can do kind of guy, he’s a turnaround guy.”
Sorry, Ann but this is nonsense. Your husband is not there for women, nor is the Republican Party. Have you been deaf and blind to the repeated attempts to take our rights away from us, Ann? It seems so. You would have us believe that your political party has the right to force women to have unnecessary medical procedures, that women should go to jail for making their own choices, that women should have less protection under the law than a zygote, and that women should be paid less than a man. You say “He will hear your voices”. Will? It’s clear that he hasn’t *yet* and will never do so. And supposedly fixing the economy on the backs of women who are intentionally paid less is no fix at all. Your party voted against equal pay for women, Ann. Please do try to remember that and not lie to us anymore. Your utter cluelessness makes the Free Wood Post spoof of you seem not so unlikely.
“My husband was being demonized, lied about,” she said, “and now we’re really getting it, as you know.”
Ann, if this distresses you so much, you should tell your husband to stop lying about others, especially President Obama (the work requirement for welfare, the “you didn’t build it” statement, the pathetic quote mining of a speech that used a quote used for emphasis as something Obama meant, etc). It’s a shame that he evidently can’t. Also, if you are being lied about, show instances, don’t just whine. But I’m guessing you can’t. It’s a shame that you have to either intentionally lie too or feign ignorance about such things, and be too much of a coward to call Mitt on it.
“I am so grateful that people are now standing up and saying this is the guy that has integrity, decency, goodness. And this is the guy that cares about you and that is why we are running,” she told the crowd mainly comprised of women. “We are not running to make our lives better. We are running for you.”
Hmm, Ann. How does lying repeatedly make anyone decent, honorable and good? Because that’s what your husband, his running mate and your party have been documented doing. The facts are there, Ann, they won’t go away if you pray hard enough. You aren’t running for women, you are trying your very best to manipulate them as dishonestly as you can.
But happily, we, at least most of us, aren’t the idiots you obviously think we are with such shoddy attempts. Pick up your game, girl! I’m guessing that might be a problem, because if you know that lies are being told, it’s harder to present such nonsense with a straight face.
The Democrats aren’t that much better, with their pandering to whiny Republicans. Obama was a monumental nitwit for signing the NDAA. But, and this is an important but, they aren’t trying to create a theocracy, built on the highly bemusing alliance between those Christians who hate everyone who isn’t like them and who want to return to Old Testament values (those pansy New Testment ideas of helping others aren’t anywhere to be found), and Mormons, who want to gain as much power as they can, so they can have those magical planets promised to them. Both of these ill-met bedfellows want women to be no more than property, restricted to what “daddy” knows best. And well, Ann, that ended back in the early 1900s and we aren’t going back.
Many of us have woken up, Ann. We know that there is a concerted war on women waged by the Republican Party, to return us to some delusion of women in aprons waiting obsequiously on men who deign to allow us what freedoms they choose. We are not going to be limited to church, kitchen and children as your party would have us be, chained to primitive notions. We are not satisfied with “pin money” anymore.
