Obama ad: “It’s a scary time to be a woman”

posted at 3:21 pm on July 26, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

I hate it — hate it – when I hear liberal groups talking about “women’s issues.” Please stop lumping me in to your stupid, sweeping stereotypes and implying that, just because I am a part of the gender demographic that composes approximately half of the world’s population, I automatically agree with you. I don’t. But that’s the appeal of continuing this utterly dumb “Republicans are waging a war on women” meme, I suppose — drumming up a false feeling of mass feminist solidarity and convincing the perhaps less-informed ladies of America that they have something they need to get outraged about.

Getting the full swing-state average-voter experience, I noticed this commercial on one of the closed-captioned television screens at the gym yesterday (by far my greatest exercise was in self-restraint, not taking off my sneaker and chucking it at the tv), but it doesn’t look like it’s available in an embeddable version online yet — you’ll have to follow the link to WaPo to watch.

A new ad from President Obama and the Democratic National Committee raises fears about Mitt Romney’s positions on reproductive rights.

“I’ve never felt this way before, but it’s a scary time to be a woman,” says 30-something “Jenni.” “Mitt Romney is just so out of touch.”

A female narrator chimes in: “Romney opposes requiring insurance coverage for contraception and Romney supports overturning Roe vs. Wade. Romney backed a bill that outlawed all abortion, even in cases of rape and incest.”

Jenni adds, “There’s so much to do. [W]e need to attack our problems, not a woman’s choice.”

It is most certainly and without a doubt not a scary time to be a woman. In fact, it’s probably one of the best times to be a woman in America, ever. Never before have women had so many available opportunities, choices, and independence — are we really going to subvert that independence by insisting that our gender entitles us to free stuff? “Romney opposes requiring insurance coverage for contraception.” I should very well hope so! Health care isn’t like free speech — it is the product of somebody else’s labor, and therefore nobody is entitled to it. If you’re going to make certain decisions of your own free will, ladies, you’d better be responsible for them and stop acting like you’re a victim who needs the government to protect you from your own judgment (talk about slippery slopes!). How much more demeaning can it get? And I realize that the abortion debate and Mitt Romney’s record therein is a much more involved can of worms, but Politifact rates the ad’s claims about Romney as “Pants on Fire”-worthy.

The “war on women” may very well be the most aggravatingly counterproductive meme the Democrats have come up with yet. Make it stop.

Update: Just kidding, I was wrong; the video is embeddable. Here it is:

“The Right’s war on women…”

…uhh, apparently the Left saying that doesn’t want anyone to look too closely at Hollywood and what transpires there and how.

I’m rather weary of these gender-color-”orientation” “wars”. The Left continues to desperately TRY to agitate animosity and unhappiness simply because they have no other ideas. Or goals.

There is no possible way HIS daughter will ever be subjected to a government clinic to abort his grandchild. He would make sure that his granddaughter or grandson was aborted by the best doctor murderer, money can buy.

It is a scary time to be a woman. It’s a scary time to be a man, too. And it’s downright terrifying to be a dog.

We’ve got a President who is indiscriminate in his war on small business, big business, entrepreneurs, all energy but faded green, religious freedom, fetuses, dogs’ right to life, individuality, personal responsibility, freedom of speech, the Constitution, school choice, success, dignity for those who are temporarily on welfare, and….well, you get it.

Oh come now, just look around:

- The west is pulling out of Iraq and Afghanistan, leaving women to fend for themselves.

- Throughout the Middle East, secular governments are being replaced by Islamist and tribal leadership.

- Even in the White House, women are still making far less than men.

- The cadre in the White House seems more a “boys club” than in prior administrations.

- We’ve had a stimulus and other recovery-oriented programs helping mainly men.

- Job growth is negative for women and positive for men (if I recall correctly).

- Sex-selective abortion targeting females is at very high levels, even coming into play in the U.S.

- The generation they’re raising has less hope for the future than any in the better part of a century.

How can you say it’s not a scary time for women?

BTW, my teenage daughter is staunchly pro-life and not even interested in getting birth control pills, because she respects herself too much to have casual sex. And she despises Barack Obama.

My 19-year-old son, who will be voting in November for the first time, hates Obamacare and thinks that if he wants to have sex it is his responsibility to use protection. He is furious that Obamacare provides free oral contraceptives for women, but not condoms for men, and thinks that is discriminatory against men. I told him that is a feature, not a bug, because the whole thing was designed to pander to single women to get their votes. This just made him despise Obama even more.

Yes, that is the “horror” we’re trying to protect you from… Romney will takes women’s rights all the way back to 2007… HORROR!!!!

Every Republican President since Roe v Wade has run on the same platform and, yet, abortion is still legal. Are women supposed to remain skairdy kats forever or are you gonna just milk fear every 4 years?

Neither Congress nor a President can “ban” abortion. Only the Court or a Constitutional amendment can ever ban abortion in America again and, although the Court came extraordinarily close to overturning Roe in 1992, it didn’t.

Stop treating women like we are all stupid, fearful idiots. We are not nor do we think/vote with our vajayjays. In case you haven’t noticed, there are far more important and dire events transpiring in the world.

How many Pinocchios should I award you? This is Romney’s oh so scary position:

Federal ban on abortions
No. Romney favors state level legislation.
“But while the nation remains so divided over abortion, I believe that the states, through the democratic process, should determine their own abortion laws and not have them dictated by judicial mandate.”

and

Roe v. Wade
Favors a repeal
“I’d like to see Roe v. Wade overturned and allow the states and the elected representatives of the people, and the people themselves, have the ability to put in place pro-life legislation.”

It’s a skeery time in America because Romney is running on a platform to ban abortion, according to Obama.

How’s this for scary:

DOJ official refuses to promise that DOJ will NEVER advance an anti-blasphemy law

A stunning exchange took place today when Assistant AG Tom Perez of the DOJ Civil Rights Division refused to commit to the House Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on the Constitution that it would never advance a law criminalizing the right to criticize any religion.

The non-commital answer by Perez was in response to a question asked by Rep. Trent Frank (R-AZ): “Will you tell us here today that this Administration’s Department of Justice will never entertain or advance a proposal that criminalizes speech against any religion?”

Here’s the exchange:

http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2012/07/26/doj-official-refuses-to-promise-that-doj-will-never-advance-an-anti-blasphemy-law/

Resist We Much on July 26, 2012 at 6:17 PM

So, while I don’t support a ban on early abortion, I have a problem with the “rape and incest” exceptions. Promoting them basically means that you don’t actually care about the life of the child, you see the pregnancy as just punishment (just not for the innocent victims of rape or incest).

Count to 10 on July 26, 2012 at 6:23 PM

It’s a scary time to be an American.

$56,000 debt per taxpayer in Obama’s first term. So that’s $112,000 per couple if they’re both taxpayers. So if we get another 4 years of Obama, conservatively, the bill for the debt he incurs would be about $224,000 per taxpaying couple. And that’s just the borrowed spending. Everyone who votes for Obama should be aware of that right up front. A vote for Obama is a commitment to pay the federal government $112,000 above and beyond your current federal taxes.

A VOTE FOR OBAMA IS A COMMITMENT TO PAY $112,000 ABOVE AND BEYOND YOUR CURRENT TAXES.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

He thinks you can choose what you want to do, not be dictated to by the Federal Government and the Human Services Secretary, please guard your freedom, AND your contraceptive freedom.

Reproductive freedom is the right to have all the children god has given to you, even if they are female babies.

(P.S. the insurance policy will charge you lots and lots more for lots of other things you don’t use or need, and require you to pay for it, BEFORE you get your pills.)

You obviously don’t know any expectant mothers. Abortion is not what they are thinking of if they have complications. They are thinking about how to save both mother and child. And, many more babies born prematurely can now be saved thanks to advances in medicines.

Okay, might as well close the thread here, folks. There’s no way we’re getting anything better than this.

You know what women need? An enormous, overbearing paternalistic federal government ruling every aspect of their live.

Slavery is freedom!

Jenni’s gonna be surprised when she goes in for her abortion in a couple of years and the IPAB rep says to her:

Yea, Jenni, we know it’s covered but…ya know…we just can’t afford it. Sorry, hon.

“It’s a scary time to be a woman”

Only if you have been conceived and not yet born and your mother pays a visit to Planned Parenthood.

This just makes me sick.

I’d like to think I’m woman enough not to spend every waking minute wringing my hands about how to stop a beating heart.

That woman in the video is a rotten excuse for a strong woman. She whines at the camera.

It’s going to be hard to sleep tonight after watching this. Sigh.

Ernesto,

Reading your posts, one comes away with the feeling that you think the ‘right’ to abortion is the most important thing that defines being a woman. What a disgusting little prig you are.

The way the liberals operate is exactly the same way a gang leader operates to recruit people to believe in and to join them. They prey on the young, the most vulnerable, the uninformed, the ones in a bind and needing an uplift and the inintelligent. If you don’t bother to educate yourself and keep yourself informed and if you rely totally on the liberal press, you will fall for his hype. If you are capable of caring for yourself and your family, then great, if not, why do you have a family?

Only stupid women fall for his lies.
