Election 2012: Many American Women Are Stupid

I am proud NOT to be one of the women who voted for Obama.

From The Hill:

The gender gap in the 2012 presidential election was the largest since Gallup began tracking the metric in 1952, according to data released by the polling firm on Friday.

President Obama won women by 12 percentage points, while Mitt Romney won men by 8. That’s a 20-point gender gap, edging out the 1984 election when Ronald Reagan defeated Democrat Walter Mondale in a landslide.

...The politics of gender played a significant role throughout the 2012 election, as Romney looked to cut into Obama’s advantage among female voters by framing the economy as a women’s issue.

The strategy worked for a while, as polls showed women flocking to the GOP challenger after his strong first debate performance. But Romney was unable to hold on to those gains in the final weeks of the campaign, and the Obama campaign relentlessly portrayed the GOP candidate as a throwback to the 1950s in his views on women's reproductive and pay equity issues.

Romney may also have been hurt by two Republican House candidates, former Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) and Indiana State Treasurer Richard Mourdock. Both Senate candidates, who lost their election bids, made controversial comments about rape and abortion that reignited the Democratic line of attack from earlier in the cycle that the GOP is looking to “turn back the clock” on women’s issues.
American women who actually bought into the Democrats' claim that Mitt Romney was the enemy of women and intended to "turn back the clock" on women's issues are embarrassingly ignorant.

The Democrats should not be proud that their idiotic "War on Women" crap worked. It's pathetic.

Apparently, the reality is a lot of American women are just plain stupid.

Good Lord, if they are so empty-headed that they don't realize that the economy most definitely is a women's issue and critical to their health and well-being, then they're hopelessly backward.

Really, how clueless can they be?

Those ads painting Romney as bent on "getting rid" of Planned Parenthood were thoroughly deceptive.

Obama and the Democrats, as we know, are shameless. They will say anything.

Contraception? A game-changer?

How sad!

I guess one problem for the Romney campaign was that it gave American women too much credit.

At least some of us don't need the big, strong government to take care of our every need.

We're strong. We understood what was at stake in this election and we voted for Romney.

Thing is, that when women go to government for "help" they will find that it's most likely not there and for days and weeks and months they will have to wade through the largesse just to find out government really doesn't care about them nor is government going to really do anything for them. The joke is on them but they gave their vote up for empty promises. Suckers.

And, the country's grass roots are actually moving to the right when it comes to local politics.

There is going to be more an more isolation of the dangerous, nearly bankrupt major urban areas as time goes on and people and businesses continue to leave these areas for states and cities that are more business and family friendly. The areas that are in decline continue to gain Democratic rule. Those that are progressive and are working to fix the economy are gaining Republican rule. WI is a perfect example of this.

There very well might be more Detroits and near-Detroits on the horizon.

The Federal government cannot and will not be able to manage the entire country. It is too big, too diverse and eventually people will not allow it.

Our country is in a historic transitional phase that most don't recognize nor understand since they are much to into themselves which is a part of why this is being allowed to happen while we are all wide awake.

I don't believe the Obama presidency will do much of anything to preclude this evolution. Things in urban areas will only continue to deteriorate. Look at the mess Chicago has become.

Don't miss this article.

What doesn't make sense about Wisconsin is that we voted for conservatives to control the government but went with Obama and the extreme Leftist Tammy Baldwin.

Something is amiss.

That aside, it's encouraging that Republican governors outnumber the Democrats. This one-party rule in states perfectly illustrates how divided we are. It also shows how unsuccessful liberal policies are.

The urban areas that delivered the election to Obama will continue to rot and the taxpayers will be forced to pour money into those sewers. Obama isn't going to turn that around.

I'm feeling very discouraged about our future. I understand why there are civil wars.
