Mitt's Math: Texas + 11 2010 GOP States Laid Off 72% of 2011 Women Mitt Charges to Obama | Mitt Romney's Girls Club

Daily French Roast

Anne is reading …

The Atlantic breaks down Mitt Romney’s charges that President Obama is waging a war on women, citing the reality that 92 percent of all job losses since 2009 have been for women. Whether you believe it’s fair to charge Obama with job losses counted from the day he took office, the statistic is correct.

The same numbers can easily be used by Democrats to explain what will happen to women under a Mitt Romney presidency and Paul Ryan budget strategy.

In reality, the Republican demand for smaller government and fewer social services is driving job loss among women. Two out of every three jobs lost on Obama’s watch is in the government sector.

A study in what will happen under a Mitt Romney administration, supporting the Paul Ryan budget, is easily understood by looking at state and local government job losses in 2011. This graph, produced by the Roosevelt Institute, shares the reality that 40.5 percent of all state and local government job loses occurred in the 11 states that went GOP in 2010. Add to the reality that another 31 percent of job losses occurred in the state of Texas alone. Republican governance in 12 states has generated 72 percent of the 2011 job losses Romney is hanging on President Obama.

The math skills of America’s high school students may be deplorable. But most AOC readers can understand graphs that TOTALLY make mincemeat of Mitt Romney’s paper dragon charges that President Obama is undermining the jobs of American women.

Romney’s Girls Club

Who are the women who stood by Mitt Romney during his now famous ‘The Obama Economy Isn’t Working for Women’ phone call, in which the candidate kicked the can on supporting the Lilly Ledbetter pay-equity act.

The call included Romney women Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), Reps. Cathy McMorris Rodgers and Cynthia Lummis (R-WY), Virginia delegate Barbara Comstock (R), and Concerned Women For America’s Penny Nance who is a “mommy blogger.”

Both McMorris Rodgers and Lummis voted against the Lilly Ledbetter pay-equity act. Note that Romney also called on Mary Bono Mack (R-CA) days earlier to attack Obama on women, when she, too, voted against Ledbetter AND the Paycheck Fairness Act.

Comstock is a firm supporter of Virginia’s now-infamous vaginal-probe ultrasound bill and its radical Personhood bill. ThinkProgress writes that Comstock also supported another bill — one that leaves us speechless — one of many sweeping America that says private insurance plans in the state can’t cover abortion.

CWA’s Penny Nance holds views particularly egregious towards working women.

Janice Shaw Crouse of CWA told the Christian post that “Many Christian women choose to work part time, to bring in some extra income to help the family, but they don’t view their job as a career or they don’t see themselves as career women — they see themselves helping their husbands.

A paper penned by CWFA’s Beverly LaHaye Institute claimed that “the feminists have achieved their goal: widely available child care to ‘free themselves of motherhood.’”

The group put out a brochure titled “‘Birth Control’: Health Care or Health Risk?”

Mitt Romney’s spokeswoman Penny Nance appears to support a theocracy for America, citing Biblical Support for CWA Core Issues:

This Judeo-Christian worldview once served as the bedrock of Western Civilization. In recent times, Western Civilization has willingly chosen to exchange the faith and logic of a Biblical worldview for an irrational secularism based on an unthinking and cruel relativism. This foolish exchange is at the root of the glaring injustices of modern American public policy.
