Heck, thinking about why waste time with this campaign how about Republicans wage war on 99% of Americans.
    If I were a Republican I be more than a little embarrassed about my leadership needlessly and stupidly pissing off so many important voting blocks.

    Latest example is Mike Hoekstra who is trying to unseat D-Sen. Debbie Stabinow. Hoekstra explained that this law which helps women enforce their right to equal pay is just a "nuisance". Oh you pesky women and your silly desire to get equal pay for equal work! Don't you know you're better seen and not heard? What a nuisance!
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    This issue could really hurt Romney.

    For those who want access to contraception and are pro-choice, they will vote for Obama.

    For those who are pro-life, they may not be thrilled about voting for a flip-flopper like Romney. Where exactly does Romney stand on these issues today? Do the voters think he will feel the same way on these issues down the road, or will he flip-flop again?

    Yes, Adam, I read that also. If it's not a "war on women" why do they just keep waging it? Oh well, those comments certainly aren't going to help any conservative campaigns.

    When I heard about this War on Women, I put my armor on and readied my bow and arrow, but... nothing. There's no war on women in this country.

    Did Romney make the statements you and your buddy Mr. T allude to?

    Not sure where you could find a statement from Romney that would impact a woman's right to contraception.

    No, Wash, Romney did not belittle the Ledbetter law...it was Hoekstra. Romney did not even know what the Ledbetter law was, when asked about it, LOL.

    That's one part of my point. Where does he stand on the issue?

    Well I have to admit that I don't remember it either, doesn't mean I am at war with anyone!

    Am I the only one who thinks, "ZOMG what about Obama's socialism?!?!?!" whenever someone brings up this "war on women" stuff?
