    FYI, when questioned about it on a live press call that Romney arranged to discuss women's issues ... he didn't even appear to know what the Act was (it was the first law Obama signed). His campaign told the reporter that Romney would have to get back to him on that. Subsequently Romney did not endorse the measure, but he graciously said that he would not repeal it -- as if that's something the President can do.
    If I am not mistaken, and I could be because I dont know every republicans reasonings, but I recall hearing back then that Republicans did not oppose the main idea of the bill, but rather wanted some additional wording or provisions included to help prevent frivolous lawsuits. Working to prevent frivilous lawsuits hardly constitutes an attack on woman.

    How is the Republicans' opposition to a bill designed to insure equal pay for women a deflection in a thread about the Republicans' war on women?
    "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."

    Noone opposes equal pay for women.

    another reason I don't like this administration, however, they are pulling the successful fear tactic that the Bush administration used in 2004.

    Remember the threat color code system in 2004? Fear plays the best I guess.

Those attacks, which are more than ones from Santorum by the way, do come from the right. Please explain to me how "come from the right" is the same thing as "speaking for the right" since not everybody on the right speaks for everyone else on the right.

    would it be a bit more honest, to be discussing where you feel Romney who is the candidate has been shown to make statements such as the ones above?

    You think? Then why did Republicans vote almost unanimously against the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act? Why did only eight Republicans in Congress support it?

    Because it had nothing to do with equal pay. It was about statue of limitations.

    How about you scroll up to post #51 and read the post rather than asking me to repost it?

    Its not coming from the right. Its coming from Rick Santorum.
