    I don't know whether to be insulted by the fact that he (and others) think women are stupid enough to fall for bs fear tactics, or whether I'm dismayed by the fact that they're at least partially correct.

    I would say both parties have successfully employed this tactic.

    Clearly, this is the only way anybody will report anything Biden has to say.

    Just stupid it up - and it'll be reported.

    Biden is the king of stupid-talk.

    It is a good thing that the Dems have a lot of room to say really stupid shat because of the advantage they have in the upcoming presidential election. Go back into your hole Biden.

    It is about all they have left. Showing any agreement with the other part on any issue is a sign of weakness.

    I don't his comments are premised on the idea that women are stupid. I think his comments are premised on the fact that a lot of women do, in fact, have a problem with the recent conservative attacks on legalized abortion and birth control and he's trying to mobilize those women to vote. Fear tactics only work for mobilization. I don't think they're used to make people "fall" for something they haven't already fallen for.

    Calling Ann Coulter and Sarah Palin women is insulting to all the females in this world.

    There's nothing stupid about mobilizing people who agree with you using fear. That said, it's not smart either. It's an obvious and common political tactic used by every political party known to man and it says nothing about Biden and everything about patterns in political strategy.

    But see, that's just it. Abortion legislation has ebbed and flowed since before Roe v. Wade and will continue to do so as long as the constitutional justification for abortion creates such a large level of ambiguity. Until an agreement can be reached upon when the baby is equal in rights to the mother, there will always be those pushing for less or more in terms of abortion.

    As for birth control, there has been absolutely no attack. There was a debate on whether or not certain groups could be mandated to pay so that their employees could receive it for free via insurance. This was about new legislation created through Obama care that decided that women are, for whatever reason, entitled to free birth control. Nothing about that debate would have restricted existing access for any woman, nor would it have disallowed any group of women the ability to seek out birth control.

    As I said, the fear tatic spin nonsense has obviously worked, because people have made gross assumptions about the reality of the situation and warped debates into justification for accusations against the GOP for trying to do any number of things regarding women and reproduction. The facts don't hold up to the exaggerated fear-mongering information being force fed to us by the media, but that hasn't stopped peope from catching a case of hysteria from the news media and childish law makers who play on the hype to exacerbate the issue.

    My hope is that one day the American people will rise above the spoon-fed bullcrap and flat out demand that our leaders cut the crap and try an honest approach to legislation, campaigning, and debate. Given the country's current trajectory, however, I fully expect us to sink further into Idiocracy before my dream is ever realized.
