If you need more proof that the Obama Campaign is running scared, look no further than this video (Hat tip: Chicks on the Right) that was posted on YouTube on Friday. Entitled, “Republican Women for Obama,” two women featured in the video have been proven to be strong in the Democratic party – one having enough juice to have actually had a meeting with Michelle Obama earlier this year.
So, for starters, not only are the women in this video disingenuous, I have to laugh at the scenery given in the video as well. Trying to appeal to the rural voters, we see farms with old barns, wheelbarrows, flowers and the wind blowing through their hairs. This little veiled slight-of-hand didn’t get past me – making liberals look wholesome?
Going further, the claim that supporting abortion somehow makes Obama a believer in the Republican stance of smaller government is nothing short of laughable. In fact it is hysterical. How can any rational thinker say that by supporting abortion in addition to supporting that governmental financial monstrosity called Obamacare equates to smaller government?
This video is nothing more than an affront to all American women and a direct insult to our intelligence. As a Conservative I know how to glean real information from an ad or article and don’t simply take anything that comes from either side of the aisle as gospel. My response to this is simple – there is no way any of these women could have been long-time Republicans because Republican women just aren’t that naïve. This video erroneously insinuates that Feminism equal Abortion. This has been a liberal tactic for years now – telling women that if they don’t support abortion that they are saying they don’t support their gender’s right to equality within the law. True equality covers every aspect of our lives politically, socially, economically and educationally. Equality is not synonymous with the right to an abortion.
The Republican Party’s platform on abortion has been consistent for as long as I can remember – we are against it. Some waiver when the issue of rape and incest are brought into the picture; yet we are firm on the fact that is it not a form of contraception. Going further, these women are claiming that the only issue that is of concern to them is a woman’s right to choose. If this election were based on this one issue alone, then why are both campaigns wasting all of this money campaigning and traveling around this great country of ours? The Obama Campaign is trying to narrow the scope of their argument to the only part of it that he can control.
Because of Obama’s dismal record on the economy, his Obamacare and his inability to control the deficit (to name a few); he has no other choice than to attempt to move the focus of the election away from his failures. He tries to tell those stupid enough to believe him that the Republican Party has suddenly changed its stance on abortion and that we now want to overturn Roe v. Wade. Sorry Honey, but that has been on the Republican books since the day Roe v. Wade was passed.
After taking a look at how Democratic Party Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was taken to task by CNN’s Anderson Cooper for clearly lying about the Romney/Ryan Campaign’s position on abortion by misquoting the LA Times, this kind of slight-of-hand is obviously now part of the DNC’s platform. Taking completely out of context said quote, Wasserman was caught red-handed by Cooper and did so much doublespeak in defense of her misquote that she shot herself in the foot so many times I lost track. Cooper caught her red-handed misrepresenting a quote from a LA Times article, which spoke in generalities about the GOP’s platform and made no specific reference to abortion. Wasserman used this LA Times article as the foundation of her claim to Obama supporters in a fundraising email stating that the GOP was making substantive changes to the party platform on abortion . After Cooper refusing to let the issue go, Wasserman refuses to admit that she was caught and stated that, “It didn’t matter.” It didn’t matter because, according to Wasserman, the purpose of the email was to show,
Anderson, the bottom line message of our e- mail is that, A., women need to know the difference between the two parties and the two presidential candidates on a woman’s right to make her own reproductive choices and that Mitt Romney can say that he’s for an exception for rape or incest. His party platform doesn’t reflect that. He has previously fully embraced a human life amendment with no exception and said he would be delighted to support it and women need to know the difference. And women need to know that Mitt Romney is simply saying one thing, but not insisting that his party’s policies as reflected in their platform reflect his views. And we’re not going to let him get away with it. This is an important decision.
Cooper goes on and insists that a candidate’s views can be different from the party’s platform and that while a candidate can make suggestions or recommend changes to the platform, Romney’s platform and the parties do not and apparently aren’t one in the same. Remember, this is Anderson Cooper, not Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh, going after Wasserman for outright lying to solicit funds from Obama supporters. That speaks volumes when someone like Cooper isn’t giving the liberal left a free pass when they lie to the American people.
I guess my next question would be; what does matter to the DNC? -Apparently winning at any cost and a woman’s right to an abortion – those are the only two things.
In closing, I want the media to continue to brow beat Wasserman as she overtly uses misdirection to deceive the American people.
And, I want these women to put their money where their mouth is. I want them to show us their voter registration record for the past 10 years and then, I would love to have a chat with these ladies! We can sit out on that nice patio at their farm …
