According to the latest Bureau of Labor Statistic numbers published today, there are now 780,000 women collecting unemployment. That number continues to rise with no end in sight. Obama’s economic policies continue to fail and are continuing to hurt women. There are more women out of the workforce than there were when Obama took office and that number keeps growing as well. Unemployment for women is at 8% (in Bush’s last month in office it was only at 6.5%). It’s clear that Obama’s economic “war on women” continues.
The participation percentage rate of women over 16 years old in the workforce is at one of its all-time lows. The other all-time low since before 2002 was also during Obama’s reign. It’s currently at 57.8%; the low under Obama was 57.6%. This means that only 57.8% of women are participating in the workforce out of the 100% that could. A number even more startling is the fact that almost 4 million women are out of the workforce since Obama took office. These are women who could be working but are not and are not collecting unemployment.

The New Hampshire Democrats hosted a fake “War on Women” rally in Concord yesterday. According to the site, paid for by the NH Democrats, www.nhwomenunited.org(if you look up the domain registration on whois it was purchased by NH Democrats ) it claims to: “Help defend women’s rights and pursuit of equality. Join Americans all across the United States on April 28th, 2012, as we come together as one to tell members of Congress in Washington DC and legislators in all 50 states, “Enough is enough!””
Interestingly the only issues their website discusses are abortion and forcing religious entities to pay for birth control. There is nothing about the extreme poverty rates that women are in under Obama’s economy nor is there anything about the massive numbers of women now unemployed under Obama’s economy. Of course the fact that this was all funded and created by the NH Democrats isn’t listed anywhere on the website (this is what Nancy Pelosi likes to call “astroturf”).
The rally was nothing more than a campaign push for Obama and other Democrats who have the same big government failed type policies. Apparently the NH Democrats don’t realize that when polled, the most important issues for women today are jobs and the economy . As a matter of fact, abortion and birth control are at the very bottom of the issues that are important to voters. Abortion isn’t going away and birth control is cheap to purchase. Planned Parenthood isn’t going away and they don’t need taxpayer money to survive.
It’s bad enough that some women actually believe the Democrat Party serves their best interest . It’s even worse that women buy into the Democrat lies about history – no it wasn’t the Democrat Party that fought for women’s right to vote – they fought against it. The only party to vote ‘NAY’ on the Equal Pay Act was the Democrat Party. It was the Democrat Party who put Affirmative Action into the Frank-Dodd Financial Reform bill because apparently in 2012 they believe women are too stupid to get jobs in the financial industry based on their own merit and experience.
What you have today is the Democrat Party doubling down on dumbing down women. They have got women actually believing that the Ledbetter Act is about equal pay. It isn’t. The Ledbetter Act is about lawsuits. It was a win for lawyers, not women. There were already laws in place for women to seek recourse if they were not getting equal pay for equal work. But to Democrat women, the Ledbetter Act is about equal pay and Obama is pro-women because he signed it into law. They couldn’t be more wrong.
If Obama is pro-equal pay for women why doesn’t he pay women in the White House equal pay to men? Obama was all about equal pay in his 2008 election campaign yet he didn’t pay women equally on his campaign staff . Who did? John McCain. So their big ‘champion’ of equal pay isn’t a champion at all, he’s a heel.
Democrat women have been angrier than hell over Rush Limbaugh calling fake plant activist Sandra Fluke a slut (he was wrong to do it) yet where were these same women when Bill Maher was calling Sarah Palin a c*nt and a dumb tw*t ?? They have been so dumbed down by the male-dominated Democrat Party they are nothing more than left wing puppets who will kick and scream when told you by their masters. They do it on cue even. As soon as any male on the right makes a dumb comment (they all do on both sides but interestingly only one side gets attacked by the shrill puppets), the talking points are sent out and the kicking and screaming begins.
This whole manufactured ‘GOP War on Women’ is another great example of the dumbing down of women by Democrats. Democrats believe that of the millions of women in this country abortion and birth control are the biggest issues for all of us. Are they really that stupid? Democrat women are apparently. Feel free to have all the sex you want – it is your responsibility. Have a good time and oh yeah, birth control is cheap, better yet make your partner pay for it. Democrat women don’t care that under Obama’s rule women in extreme poverty has risen to its highest level in HISTORY. Democrat women don’t care that more women are unemployed under Obama than in years. What these fools do not realize is that abortion isn’t going away. When Republicans had the White House, Congress and the SCOTUS, Roe v Wade wasn’t overturned. Ta da!
The number one issue for the majority of women in this country is the economy but to Democrat women it’s ‘hands off my uterus’ but um pay for my birth control. The Democrat Party has double downed on dumbing down women in the past few years and it’s an embarrassment. As a feminist (no not a femi-nazi, man hating beast – those women are not feminists), I’m appalled on how dumb women have become and that they’ve been led like little poodles on a leash by men. I have fought against stupid female stereotypes my entire life by working hard, studying hard and proving that I can do anything a man can do (okay really… I CAN change my oil but I’d rather not). It is 2012 and we have an entire portion of the female population who have taken feminism and thrown it in the garbage because they’d rather be puppets for men than BE the puppet masters.
UPDATE: Add Paycheck Fairness Act to this list. ANOTHER useless bill that is pandering to Democrat women for political purposes only further dumbing them down (if that’s possible). The bill again is about lawsuits and and doesn’t change the fact that we have Equal Pay laws already in place. Of course, left wing shills are screaming that anyone who is against it is against women. Are they really that dumb or are they just playing a political game being used as objects because Obama cannot run on his failed economic record?
Democrats and the Obama Administration have created some amusing propaganda recently – the GOP’s ‘War on Women’. Many people believe there is no war on women (there isn’t in the form that Obama is peddling) but in reality there has been a war waged against women for many years – by Democrats. Let’s start with a little stroll back through history.
It was Democrats who didn’t want women to get the right to vote nationally: From the New York Times
Sunday, February 15, 1920
Booms Mrs. Catt for Presidency
Minnesota Delegate’s Suggestion Rouses Furor in Suffrage Convention
Praise Hays and Cummings
League Takes the Place of Old Association That Won the Fight
CHICAGO, Feb. 14 – The National American Woman’s Suffrage Association today came to the defense of Will Hays, Chairman of the Republican National Committee, who has been attacked by anti-suffragists for aid rendered to the suffrage cause, and congratulated the Republican Party “for having a Chairman who is astute enough to recognize the certain trend of public affairs and to lead his party in step with the inevitable march of human progress.”
It was under Democrat President Wilson that women (suffragettes) who were protesting for their right to vote outside of the White House were arrested and confined to prison
The Democrats’ ‘War on Poverty’ has done nothing to ease poverty but has increased the number of women IN poverty and dependent on the government.
What was the message of the social programs that came out of LBJ’s Great Society?
One of the most devastating to the family was that if an unwed woman became pregnant, moved out of the home of her parents, did not name or know who the father was, then Big Daddy in Washington would provide for all her essential needs. Ergo she no longer needed a husband or the support of her family. In fact, the more children she had out of wedlock, the more money she would receive from the government.
The ‘Great Society’ hurt black women and families the most and still does to this day:
…That’s the deal that the Great Society struck with low-income black women in the 1970s. The result: the marginalization of black men, an explosion of single-parent households, and the institutionalization of a near-permanent under-class.
Forty years ago, social scientists devised a clever euphemism to sum up the effects of a government program that picks taxpayers’ wallets, weakens the family, and turns women into wards of the state: the feminization of poverty.
