Democrat strategist Hilary Rosen, speaking on CNN, tried to spin the “war on women” issue with an ignorant lie that she is now trying to distance herself from. She claimed the idea of a war on women did not come from Democrats, saying: “…this is something the Republicans are accusing people (Democrats) of using but they’re actually the ones spreading it…” This has blown up in her face and rightly so. It denies that the talking point of a Republican war on women has been coming from the left.
In March, Nancy Pelosi, queen of Democrats, was quoted as saying: “The national media and our opponents will use our grassroots fundraising totals to measure the strength of our opposition to the Republicans’ War on Women.” The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has an online petition demanding that “Republicans drop their war on women”. The liberal-slanted media has talking heads spewing the idea of a Republican war on women almost every chance they get. It has been a deliberate talking point.
Perhaps finally, with Rosen making such a fool of herself, this ridiculous accusation and political tactic can be put to rest. Moral outrage against abortion, birth control, or mandated health care insurance does not equate to a war against women. Spinning it as such is pathetic and an insult to voters. It is nothing more than a smoke screen designed to hide Obama’s lack of achievement. That is the real issue.
