Quotes of the day

posted at 9:30 pm on March 11, 2012 by Allahpundit

“President Obama’s re-election campaign is beginning an intensified effort this week to build support among women, using the debate over the new health care law to amplify an appeal that already appears to be benefiting from partisan clashes over birth control and abortion.

“On Monday, mailings will go out to one million women in more than a dozen battleground states in three separate versions for mothers, young women and older women, campaign and party officials said.

“An effort called ‘Nurses for Obama’ will begin on Wednesday, with nurses nationwide enlisted to be advocates for the health care law in their communities…

“Through the month, ending with what the campaign’s headquarters has designated a ‘Women’s Week of Action,’ campaign field offices will organize phone banks, campus activities, house parties and media events featuring local residents helped by the law, officials say.”

***

“You’ve got to hand it to Democratic strategists. Who would have thought six months ago that in the lead up to perhaps the most important presidential election of our time, the hottest political topic in the country would not be the weak economy, high unemployment, the huge national debt, record gas prices, or turmoil in the Middle East. Instead it’s Women’s Rights, or at least that’s what the Democratic party is calling it while miraculously managing to keep a straight face.

“A term that was once used in conjunction with women’s suffrage and the right to vote is suddenly synonymous in the modern day with free contraceptives at the expense of others. Gone are the likes of true icons like Susan B. Anthony. Now we have Sandra Fluke and her heroic crusade to mandate that her sexual lifestyle choices be subsidized. How proud the Democratic party must feel right now to have successfully revitalized the civil rights movement in the 21st century by equating it with luxury entitlement. The media must feel pretty good too. They’ve actually been able to substantiate this ridiculous narrative to the American public… or at least a targeted voting block within the American public.

“The Republicans’ War on Women – that’s the poll-tested talking point coming out of Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the DNC these days. Despite the absurdity and insulting nature of the claim, the mantra sure is getting a lot of attention. It’s also proving to be an effective weapon – one of several weapons from a year-long arsenal of distractions designed to keep the Republican party off step, off topic, and constantly on the defensive at a time when President Obama is wrapping up what is surely the most dismal presidential term of my lifetime.”

***

“One woman in the Iditarod crowd yelled at the senator. Another was more civil, but made the same point: Murkowski ticked off a lot of women with that vote.

“‘With her vote, Murkowski showed her true colors and put her party’s anti-female agenda ahead of the Alaska women she is supposed to represent,’ Fairbanks resident Michelle Cason wrote to the editor of the city’s Daily News-Miner.

“Before the weekend was out, Murkowski told the Anchorage Daily News that she regretted her vote.

“‘I knew going into it that there was conflict there,’ Murkowski said in a telephone interview this past week. When she got home to Alaska, she knew. ‘I think I made a mistake.’”

***

“When a Wall Street Journal-NBC News survey asked in the summer which party should control Congress, 46 percent of women favored Democrats and 42 percent preferred Republican control.

“But in a survey released Monday, compiling data since the beginning of the year, that figure had widened considerably to a 15-point advantage for the Democrats, according to polling by the team of Democratic pollster Peter Hart and Republican Bill McInturff. Fifty-one percent favored Democratic control; only 36 percent wanted to see the Republicans in charge…

“GOP pollster Kellyanne Conway, an adviser to presidential candidate Newt Gingrich’s campaign, said Republicans need to return to pocketbook and fiscal issues. ‘We know what works,’ she said, ‘and we need to get back to it.’…

“A GOP strategist, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the party’s situation frankly, said: ‘It’s devastating. I don’t think it’s going to go away. I think it’s going to be a significant challenge the Republican nominee is going to inherit.’”

***

“Now, the contraception controversy ‘has really closed the intensity gap with unmarried (Democratic-leaning) women in particular, who weren’t as likely to turn out,’ said Democratic pollster Celinda Lake. ‘Republicans have done what, honestly, we couldn’t have done better if we’d designed a strategy ourselves.’…

“Meanwhile, many conservatives have come to believe the entire controversy was ginned up by Obama.

“‘It’s straight from the Saul Alinsky radical playbook – stage a fake war on women to divert attention from devastating economic policies that are hurting men and women,’ said Jennifer Stefano, a tea party leader from Bucks County, Pa., who is now state director of Americans for Prosperity.

“‘It’s sexist to cast women as victims who need big government to be their big daddy.’”

***

“In Iowa, one of the crucial battlegrounds in the coming presidential election, and in other states, dozens of interviews in recent weeks have found that moderate Republican and independent women — one of the most important electoral swing groups — are disenchanted by the Republican focus on social issues like contraception and abortion in an election that, until recently, had been mostly dominated by the economy…

“‘Everybody is so busy telling us how we should act in the bedroom, they’re letting the country fall through the cracks,’ said Fran Kelley, a retired public school worker in Seattle who voted for Senator John McCain over Mr. Obama in the 2008 election. Of the Republican candidates this year, she added, ‘They’re nothing but hatemongers trying to control everyone, saying, ‘Live as I live.’…

“Last week Joyce Kimball, a retired secretary in Greenville, Ill., who voted for Mr. McCain in 2008, said she had recently become ‘fed up,’ adding that it was not out of the question for her to vote for a Democrat in November. ‘I’m looking to hear how the candidates propose to put people back to work, not what they think about contraception,’ she said. ‘I hope to God they stop talking about this.’”

***

“Of course, Democrats started the conversation, but it was a good conversation to start if the goal was to get some Republicans to say some things that could be used against them. Fortunately, Mitt Romney, the Republican candidate who is going to be the nominee, had the sense not to say much. He was “tepid.” Good! We don’t want the government in our bedroom, so we don’t need a passionate President. Let him stay in his office and coolly and calmly do his job, which shouldn’t have anything to do with sex. He’s not our boyfriend.

Man, I loathe this pandering to women! Don’t treat us like we’re stupid. Don’t act like we need your special protection. Don’t buy us things.”

Thanks again for the clip of Arnold hanging out with the Basset hound. I watched a couple on that page. Arnold took over a paper route to buy a color TV. Poor fkr would be working long time to get a color TV back then. My dad paid $450 for one in the 60′s. A lot of money at the time.

Santorum’s wife used to be married to an abortion doctor, so women can change from being idiots.

MeatHeadinCA on March 12, 2012 at 2:59 AM

Thanks for the link. Pretty benign. I don’t begrudge her hooking up with an older dude, or even if he was an abortion doctor. But Ru Paul had a pretty devastating charge on her suing her chiropractor and settling for $350K at the same time Rick was trying to get the limit on tort litigation at $250K. Who sues a chiropractor for… anything?

THAT is a different matter. I don’t doubt the sincerity of the Santorum’s personal life, but I don’t trust Rick Santorum the legislature one bit. I see no evidence that he really “learned his lesson.”

Whatever. Romney will eventually win this thing and each of us will either have to jump ship or suck up some crap. Obama must be giddy.

Good to see you too, Buddy. I’m in AZ and we don’t change with daylight savings time, so it’s just after midnight for me.

I’ve just been looking at these polls that show the swing in women voters for Barry since this manufactured “war on women” began and it’s making me wonder if the electorate is too stupid to do the right thing this Nov. The midterms gave me a glimmer of hope that the country was waking up but I’m starting to wonder if there might not be 50.1% of voters willing to believe the media instead of their own two eyes.

Anyway, I don’t want to be the buzzkill in the middle of reminiscing about hot chicks of yesteryear so I’m going to force myself to think about something else.

Kataklysmic on March 12, 2012 at 3:28 AM

Whatever.

MeatHeadinCA on March 12, 2012 at 3:13 AM

He’s not my first choice. But I don’t think he’ll be that bad. We don’t know what he’s capable of with a Republican Senate and House. He’s had to survive in the libbest of libby states. I know I live in liberal Hollywood, but anecdotal evidence points to a lot of former Obama voters thinking Mitt is the only one that can defeat him.

Anyone know if the patch works?
JPeterman on March 12, 2012 at 1:36 AM

My experience is that everyone has their own method that works best. I tried gum, patch, lozenges…all with mild success.

What has me “clean” since last September was weaning myself off. Had 20 cigs on day 1…19 on day 2…18 on day 3…etc.

Every once in a while, i’d get stuck. Couldn’t go from 12 to 11 so easy…or from 8 to 7. So i’d hang out at 8 smokes a day for 5 or 6 days before finally pushing thru to 7.

About a month later…I was done with it.

Had a cig 3 months later…took 3 drags and threw it out. It was disgusting.

I still walk thru the smokers section outside at work though. It smells glorious.

And I still have mental cravings. And everyone I talk to says you always will.

But, clean for 6+ months now. Feels good.

imasoulman on March 12, 2012 at 5:16 AM

One more thing, I’ve read on another site that some are speculating that Obama will dump Biden and put Hillary on the ticket. If this Republican war on women narrative is successful, he just might do it.

cmsinaz on March 12, 2012 at 6:50 AM

Looks like the War on Women™ strategery is a fail. ABC News/WAPO poll has Barack under 50% approval and running even with Romney. That’s ABC News/The Washington Post — so you know the actual numbers are much, much worse for Barry. So guess what he’s offering today? Free college tuition for…everybody! (Well, “free” unless you’re a taxpayer).

Rational Thought on March 12, 2012 at 6:51 AM

Because the idea of women voting for a Mormon

Can.I.be.in.the.middle on March 12, 2012 at 2:42 AM

This is what all non~First Amendment believers think. If this was an ethnic comment, you’d be a racist. No one but a Leftinista liberal like this or Obama could rationalize someone’s religion as an issue, yet the choice of supporting a couple of racist professors and a Reverend is somehow “different” and acceptable because we wouldn’t want to offend anyone

It probably has never occurred to you that there are probably several millon Mormons who ARE women.But then, I doubt much in the way of thought ever has with you.

DevilsPrinciple on March 12, 2012 at 6:58 AM

The birth control thing just reminds women that the Republicans have been systematically anti-woman for many years. This is a party that opposed the right of a woman who had been systematically discriminated against — as her employer admitted — for 30 years, to sue for back wages. A party that vilified Hillary before Sarah Palin, the party that opposed the equal rights amendment (I know, ancient history), the party that opposed the health care program, CHIPS, that disproportionately helps single moms raising kids, the party that reaches out to conservative religious groups (and presidential candidates)that believe women should obey their husbands an not work outside the home…

ye, blubbery-lipped schmidt on all fours on msnbc, getting a few crumbs for his treachery. wants people to feel sorry for him cause he didn’t deal properly with a “distressed” Palin.
stupid mika isn’t asking him about mccains statement that schmidt lied.

the takeaway point is that for some reason the left still fear her. why? she’s not running, she’s irrelevant…….right?????

or may not. let the vetting continue. Tampa here we come.

Where do you get this fantasy drivel from ? You must be staying up all night dreaming up these fantasy scenarios. If I recall correctly, the GOP had the FIRST woman VP to run in Mrs. Palin and Condaleeza Rice was the FIRST AFRICAN~AMERICAN WOMAN AND SECRETARY OF STATE.

It must really frost your little liberal buttons that the GOP took that away from the “tolerant” left.

And if the best Obama can do is to try to manufacture an issue ( free contraceptives for Law School students) so transparent as to attempt to divide the vote? He needs to keep trying.I doubt many smart women will buy it. But he can always fall back on Thelma (Kathy Sebelius) and Louise (Nancy Pelosi)for more new ideas.
Comedy matters.

And if the best Obama can do is to try to manufacture an issue ( free contraceptives for Law School students) so transparent as to attempt to divide the vote? He needs to keep trying.I doubt many smart women will buy it. But he can always fall back on Thelma (Kathy Sebelius) and Louise (Nancy Pelosi)for more new ideas.
Comedy matters.

Your credibility is nil, given that you don’t seem to know that the first woman Vice Presidential candidate was Geraldine Ferraro, and the first woman Secretary of State was Madeline Albright.

Given that the Democrat Party has embraced the culture of death by supporting abortion, it really surprises me that there is such a thing as female Democrats. Who can have any respect for a woman that would kill her own child?

So not paying for women’s every wish is now ANTI-WOMAN.

I’m a man. I want a new Ferrari paid for by the govt. What? I can’t have one? Why, oh why does Mr. Obama hate men? For shame sir, for shame!

Even if the left succeeds with this anti-woman nonsense, the choice still comes down to this:

1. Obama will give me $10/month free birth control but I will pay $100 a week to fill up my car

2. Evil Republicans will make me pay $10/month for my pills but it will cost me $50/week to fill up my car.

I think I know which option most women will choose.

I think you are on to something here. Now you only need to arrange a sham Congressional hearing to whine that you and your co-workers don’t have Ferraris which makes you all feel unempowered or something. You could even relate a story about a co-worker who went to the Ferrari dealership but had to walk away in shame when he realized that the government wasn’t going to be paying the bill.

We’re talking women here.

Of course, the fact that, as National Security Adviser, Condi was famously elbowed aside by the white make trio of Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld in the rush to war is relevant to the Republican attitude towards women.

Women like be trusted to make their own decisions, apparently. Who would have suspected?

urban elitist on March 12, 2012 at 8:32 AM

The Republican War on Women. Is that the same War on Women being led by that “stupid c***” Sarah Palin?

People who are so insufferably stupid and wilfully ignorant they fall for that kind of mindless War on Women crap have no damned business voting. If I was running for a political office, I would be ashamed to be getting votes from brainless jackasses like that.

I stand corrected….and thanks for making my point for me. To be consistent, Democrats should file Articles of Impeachment against Barack Obama, right?

The founder of The People’s Cube originally came from the USSR and happily left it. He is a gem.

Somewhere in my files, I saved a speech of his where he describes the Orwellian language and “reasoning” of the communists he left behind. He could school the Leftists in our country over how they are tools so easily manipulated by shallow slogans and double-think.

I’m 34 years old, I have had cancer, arthritis in both knees, I have had epilepsy since I was 13, I recently fracture the ball of my arm bone and dislocated my shoulder, I’ve been laid off twice, and women hate me b/c I have a certain core conviction.

Does God hate me or what?

Pay attention one more time, Clueless. Rice was an African American Secretary of State. A small detail but nevertheless IMPORTANT ONE THAT YOU MISSED ! Strike ONE. I don’t re-call that either of the ladies you mentioned were African~American. I bet you’re not sure about that either. All of your other comments or retorts were littered with mistakes in fact or otherwise.

Palin was a Vice Presidential candidate, was she not ? Yes, is the correct answer. Your comprehension AND reading skills ARE NON existent with regard to that statement, also. Strike TWO.

Of course, the fact that, as National Security Adviser, Condi was famously elbowed aside by the white make trio of Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld in the rush to war is relevant to the Republican attitude towards women.

A war to which the Democrat party at the time was TOTALLY complicit.The rest of the country seemed fairly well prepared for that given the blood lust, post 911.But aside from the fact that you attempted, and failed, to marginalize the discussion with innsignificant points, like the one on your head, you STILL have not accomplished anything but making yourself look like a misogynist. It doesn’t make much sense to deny the facts through alternate realities. But then,that seems to be your stock-in-trade.

Women like be trusted to make their own decisions, apparently. Who would have suspected?

urban elitist on March 12, 2012 at 8:32 AM

Well, you for openers. Surely women “making their own decisions” is why women have to depend on the government for permission to abort and ask permission for free contraception ? Yes? Yes. So in reality, women really DON’T make their own decisions. If women really trusted themselves to make the right decision they would have considered the price of their responsibilities before hand and not to be determined OR paid for by others. There is often the complaint that men make decisions for women and lo and behold we find that the vast majority of legal decision are made for women through legislation. Often by men.

Apparently, women depend on men to make the legislation up that they require to make the ” so-called” independent decisions you claim that they do.

If you have any other spectacularly banal or inane statements, I’ll entertain shooting them down as well.

In the meantime. You are dismissed.

Like most people, I want good health care, and good health care insurance. I guess a lot of women want the sae things. My problem is that they don’t want to pay for it; at least the Dem. women.

And this would be a reasonable desire, too. Affordability is a also a key issue. But, that’s not the governments stated intention with Obamacare.
