Ummm....NOooooooooooooooo.The problem isn't the "tone"
or the - how did Mitt Romney put it - "Eloquence" of how the message is
being portrayed. It's the Message, itself that's the problem! But
how can you tell the GOP Establishment anything. They're so busy lecturing
everyone else, they have no time to Listen. With over 14 states in
the union having a GOP Dominant majority in their respective legislative Houses,
the only jobs bills that have passed with any considerable media attention have
been those bills attacking women's access to health care or their
reproductive rights.Jobs, jobs, jobs...everyone. It's all
about jobs. Oh, and Conspiracy Theories...
Mitt Romney does not connect, or care to make the effort to connect to women.Kinda like he has never connected to the rest of the voters in America.
When conservatives decided to embrace social conservatism (guns, God, gays and
abortion) they lost many people. Go back to fiscal conservancy and let people
control their own private lives. Then you will win.
Yeap lose the moral compass and win? That is called losing.
Ignoring the other comments which are way off topic, the Congresswoman has a
good point.People all have individual personality preferences.
These are not "right" or "wrong" (or even right and left) just
the way people tend to think or perceive things. The "Myers-Briggs"
preference tests have been given to hundreds of thousands of people and the
preferences can be sorted out into different categories. The results show that
there is a very distinct difference between most men and most women in certain
areas. This could be summed up as women tending to be more emotion and feeling
based while men tend to be more oriented to facts and analytical things.Thus, the suggestion is a valid one, regardless of the actual policy
issues under discussion.And, by the way, Romney and Ryan are
actually right on most of their policies which would greatly improve things for
men and women, rich and poor, young and old.
Not in favor of government funded contraceptives. You want to have them? Pay
for them yourselves or don't succomb to your biological urges so readly.
Oh by the way, most women that I know are voting for Romney. What gender gap?
It is a creation of the media.

contraceptives. You want to have them? Pay for them yourselves or don't
succomb to your biological urges so readly.------------------------The government doesn't fund
contraceptives. It just ensures that the contraceptives are available as part
of the insurance a woman obtains. Rightly so -- they should be part of
insurance coverage for all women. They are basic preventive health care.
If it was true that Obamacare provided for "government funded
contraceptives" for everyone, I too would be against it. That would be
silly. What's even sillier is that so many tea partiers think that is what
the law says. Furry is right. It isn't that the government is going to be
on every street corner handing out the contraceptives right and left. The law
is just saying that contraceptives have to be part of the plan that insurance
companies offer. Now is that really so horrible?
If Rush won't take the job, then I nominate Flashback as official GOP
spokes-dude to women.
Women are not the only group Republicans need to learn to talk to. They need to
learn to talk to everyone outside their core base of conservative zealots
wanting to live like they think they lived years ago while at the same time
controlling the lives of people not like them.When we see people
like Todd Akin make stupid remarks without regard to reality and then see
Republicans rally to his defense just so they can win a senate seat, I see
people who place Party over the country. Having stupid people in government
just to vote yes for an ideological agenda is the quickest way to isolation and
irrelevancy one can imagine.The march of the Republican Party to the
far, far, extreme Right only sets them apart from, not only women, but the
American people. Sure, Republicans may continue to hold 30-40% of the
electorate by utilizing various ploys to gin up their numbers, but they will
always lose Congress and the White House. And intelligent Republicans will
continue to leave the Party because that cannot tolerate the take-over by
anti-intellectual troglodytes destined for obscurity.
ute alumni Tengoku, UT"Yeap lose the moral compass . . .
"So what is the one, true religion and all the others are an
abomination? Isn't your argument basically the same?Flashback
Kearns, UTYou must live in a very small community to have all the
women you know support the Republican candidate. Are you sure they're
telling you the truth? Do you not have any independent-minded women in your
social circle? I know there is a significant amount of peer pressure in Utah to
make people conform and keep their opinions to themselves lest they get
ostracized and ridiculed, but then that's how things are in a closed
The Republican Party was formed as part of a shift in the mid 1800s away from
values that those who joined the Republicans wanted. The Whigs at the time
wouldn't represent those people. Is it time for a new party or is it time
to polically manuever control of the current party back from the extremist? And indeed, one of the mindsets of the 'small tent' extremists
is that the daughters of God should not have a voice in life. If they were
prominent in Utah politics 120 years ago, women would not have been able to vote
as soon as Utah had statehood in 1896.
Obama has endorsements from Larry Flynt and Hugh Hefner. And the Republicans
still struggle to get women to vote for them? How hard can that be?
Aren't there any men in the Democrat party? Does the GOP have a monopoly on
understanding women? Moral and medical issues are issues that government should
not be invloved in and this carries right in to socialised health care tax.No medical procedure of care or service is immune to being cut from the
system. Its impossible to insure every american stays healthy and care is not
free. You'll find that out when you get your hospital bill of a million
dollars for serviced rendered and not covered by the federal health care act
insurance.Insurance is a hoax, it does not and will not exist under
any government tax liability. Insurgence is not collective bargaining guaranteed
health care, its a mandated tax that pretends to be health care coverage. The HCA is a screen name tax liability that all americans must pay the
government. The IRS collects this new tax with no liability or basis to pay for
health care or costs. Its a tax saying you have to buy other insurance or else.
The HCA is a tax that provides no service, including health care.
@Furry1993 & WonderYou are partially correct that the government
does not provide contraception (although there are government programs that do),
however by forcing all insurance to provide contraception, sterilization and
abortifacients, regardless of CHOICE, it has the same effect.In your
faux-choice pious zeal you seem to forget that here are a great number of people
who have religious and moral objections to morning after pills, etc. Obama must
first ignore the First Amendment guarantees of freedom of religion to force
those morally opposed to abortion etc to pay for abortion pills.You
can argue that contraception is basic health care all you want - but such
argument appear vapid and diversionary because NO ONE is stopping women or men
from buying contraception - the GOVERNMENT is forcing Catholics and others with
religious objections to pay for it.Your assumption that your right
to "choice" includes the right to force others to pay for your
"choice" represents basic left-wing hypocrisy at its worst.
