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.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.
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.
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?
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.
