Romney Lost Because He Wasn't Tough Enough on Abortion Say Social Conservatives As Women Flee GOP

Pundits say the Republican party needs a period of deep inner reflection, but anti-abortion Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser will hear none of it. In quotes that are utterly preposterous at this point, Dannenfelser ignored election results and the reality that of SBA List’s six candidates for senate, five went down in defeat.

Why did Romney lose with an unyielding backlash among women voters to the Republican War on Women? Dannenfelser says that Romney made a “strategic error” in not taking a stronger stand against abortion. Seriously, this woman is living on a tuffet on a teapot somewhere in Oz.

“Voters overwhelmingly disagree with the extreme positions on abortion taken by President Obama and the Democrats. Mitt Romney, the Republican Party, and their Super PAC allies never highlighted this vulnerability, despite the fact that our polling of likely swing voters revealed it to be a persuasive line of argument. What was presented as discipline by the Romney campaign by staying on one message — the economy — was a strategic error that resulted in a winning margin of pro-life votes being left on the table.”

The War on Women Backfires The Daily Beast

‘War on women’ victory, or just a skirmish won? Philadelphia Inquirer

According to exit polls conducted for the AP and TV networks, 59 percent of voters said abortion should be legal either in all or most cases, while 36 percent said it should be illegal all or most of the time.

Column: Republicans’ culture war Lost USA Today

“If Republicans are smart, they will realize that the culture war just isn’t working out for them any longer. ” Alas, there is no evidence that Republicans will be smart and lighten up on women and gays. 

“After decades of rewarding Republicans with votes for their scare-mongering over abortion and homosexuality, voters finally turned to social conservatives and said, “Enough.”’ writes USA Today. From my pov, the culture wars are God’s war in America.

To say the culture wars are over is arguing that America’s Catholic bishops are ready to give up the control of women’s bodies in America. Trust me — it isn’t so. On our side of the equation, American women are highly motivated coming out of Tuesday’s election, gearing up to extend this fight for women’s freedoms in America.

2013 may not be an election year. Yet, all hell could break lose in this battle for women’s bodies.

I consider myself to be an emerging leader in this revitalized women’s movement. All I can say is: Game On, Gentlemen! ~ Anne

Swing State Women Gallup Poll Proves Republicans Have American Women Running Scared

Abortion Rights Top Priority of Women Swing State Voters

There is a well established gender divide in American politics, with women tending to vote Democratic and men tending to vote Republican. Within that mix, married women tend to be real swing voters. In those 12 states considered crucial “swing” states in the 2012 election, a massive gender-based disparity in top issues of concern was established this week in a Gallup Poll.

These results are based on an Oct. 5-11 USA Today/Gallup poll among registered voters in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

The survey was conducted prior to the second presidential debate held in Hempstead, N.Y., on Oct. 16 and at a time when Romney has been gaining in national polls.

American Women Are Running Scared

The reality of women embracing abortion rights as their top priority in these states, confirms that thinking women are running scared in America. Rush Limbaugh reduces these findings to a diatribe about American women wanting to have indiscriminate sex all day long, and then aborting as a form of birth control.

Reality is that American women understand that we have reason to be worried. The Republican War on Women has truly convinced us that we are not safe from transvaginal probes or personhood amendments that gives an hour old fertilized egg the same exact rights as a married woman with children and a loving husband, an advanced college and who serves as mayor or her town.

Republicans support the Blunt Amendment, putting not only the Catholic bishops in charge of women’s bodies in 1 in 6 American hospitals — that’s both patients and workers — but ANY employer who has a moral objection to women using birth control.

Mitt Romney DOES suffer from Romnesia, and there is no reason to believe that once elected the flip flopper won’t unleash the full forces of America’s social conservatives on American women. Gone in a Romney administration: abortion rights, contraception rights, federal protection for equal pay and countless other rights won by American women in the last 50 years.

Women As Beans | Republicans Romney & Ryan Make Chili of American Women

I Am Not A Bean

This is an election about choice; surely you have no doubt in your mind about that. Do you choose to believe that the Republican War on Women is real? Or do you just vote for the stud muffins because they make you feel like Cinderella and you have a closet desire to be taken care of?

Don’t be seduced American women. Paul Ryan may have great abs, but he told you at the vice presidential debate that your rights are no more important than those of a bean — a baby bean that is.

You are not anti-life because you believe you are not a bean, and that as a grown woman with or without children, you have a brain — one that hopefully comes with backbone.

Absolutely no one is suggesting that you should use birth control if it causes you a religious conflict. But to support the right of any employer — ANY employer to deny you birth control as part of your insurance package because he finds it morally objectionable is an assault on ALL American women.

Romney & Ryan Believe Women Have NO Rights Under the US Constitution

Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan — and the entire Republican party wants to return women to the 1950s, stripping away every right women have won in the workplace and in our rights to control our own reproduction.

Mitt Romney’s adviser on future Supreme Court appointments is Robert Bork. When Ronald Reagan appointed the defeated Robert Bork to the US Supreme Court in 1987, it was widely known that Bork not only opposed Roe v. Wade, but Griswold v. Connecticut, the decision by a Republican Court that granted women access to birth control as a right under the 14th amendment.

Paul Ryan flatly stated at last week’s debate that he doesn’t support 14th amendment Supreme Court decisions that given women expanded rights under the Constitution. His views are the same as Bork’s:

Throughout his career Bork was highly critical of the judicial activism practiced by the Supreme Court in milestone cases involving abortion, affirmative action and civil rights. Bork claimed he was a strict constructionist who would exercise “judicial restraint.” In his view, too many judges (and Supreme Court justices) had been interpreting the intent of the Constitution much too broadly. He opposed the 1965 Supreme Court decision in Griswold v. Connecticut, which established a broad right of privacy that was not stated in the Constitution.  Bork was also a foe of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that gave women the right to have an abortion, calling the decision “a serious and wholly unjustifiable usurpation of state legislative authority.” The courts, he felt, should not thwart the will of the popularly-elected lawmakers, and judges ought not to substitute their values for the “original intent” of the Constitution’s framers. What made Bork dangerous from the liberal perspective was the undeniable fact that he was one of the most astute legal scholars in the country; the American Bar Association (ABA) had given him its highest rating: “exceptionally well-qualified.”
