Unfortunately, there are women who can overlook any amount of ridicule because they are convinced by Liberal Progressive operatives that they want to elect a Democratic President. They tell women that they are victims and convince them that they should be more interested in getting birth control paid by the government than in being able to raise their children as they see fit, hold down a job, or start a business because of the same government bureaucracy. Ever since Teddy Kennedy abandoned Mary Jo Kopechne at Chappaquiddick, the Democratic party has been lying to women, and women have been eating it up. Look at the Democratic Presidents throughout history, and tell me how they felt about women. Lets start with FDR.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt was president from 1933 through 1945. Besides the Progressive ideas that almost bankrupted the country had it not been for World War II, he also had an affair with the woman who was his adviser, care taker, and confidant. While his wife Eleanor was out campaigning for her charities, he was at his estate with his female companion. Eleanor was so successful in her own right that she chose to ignore Franklin’s indiscretions. She had her own following and successfully participated in many charities and organizations up until the time of her death. All of the information on FDR’s “indiscretions” was suppressed while he was in office. The media, being mainly a progressive establishment, did not want to criticize FDR for fear of alienating an already fragile voting public. FDR used Eleanor’s attachments to attract the newly-established female vote to insure his likability and re-election.
The next Democratic president was John Fitzgerald Kennedy. JFK was a charismatic young Senator from Massachusetts who had a storied and noble past at a very young age and was married to Jacqueline Bouvier, who was a fashion sense in her own right. When he ran for President, the liberal establishment almost had a heart attack but were blunted by his dominance of the financial scene through his father’s dealings. Joe Kennedy was a blunt person who said exactly what he felt. Due to his relationship with members of the Mafia, all of the Democratic elites knew what would happen if they voiced their disapproval too loudly. Of course, Jack did compromise by choosing Lyndon Baines Johnson from the deep south as his running mate. JFK did not like Johnson and vice-versa (this is documented). There were many contentious meetings in the Oval Office.

The early days of JFK’s presidency were entitled “Camelot” after the popular story. The Kennedys’ early public life was a fairy tale, and they had a very fruitful relation with the media. It wasn’t until Jack started showing too much attention to certain female companions that the story of Camelot came to an end. The clincher was when Marilyn Monroe sang to JFK at his birthday party with Jackie sitting next to him. Within a couple of months, Marilyn Monroe met her demise. Shortly after that, JFK was assassinated. Later testimonials suggested that Marilyn was not his only indiscretion but nevertheless was the most visible.
LBJ chose not to run for a second term, so there was not another independently-elected Democratic president until Jimmy Carter. Days before his election, Carter was interviewed by Robert Sheer of Playboy magazine for its November 1976 issue, which hit the newsstands a couple of weeks before the election. It was here that in the course of a digression on his religion’s view of pride, Carter admitted: “I’ve looked on a lot of women with lust. I’ve committed adultery in my heart many times.” He remains the only American president to be interviewed by this magazine. It is thought that this interview in Playboy engendered him to many male voters. Jimmy Carter was a peanut farmer and a good one at that. He was a Progressive who tried to spend his way out of stagflation but was unsuccessful. In many ways, he was elected because people saw him as being an honest Governor from the deep South who would be a welcome change (does that sound familiar?) Jimmy had a brother, Billy, who loved drinking beer and dissing women. Up until the day Jimmy Carter left office, he was apologizing for his brother’s actions. Jimmy Carter has done considerable good since he left office, although he has not been respectful of other sitting presidents or women seeking the office. Following Jimmy Carter, the country didn’t elect a Democrat for president until William Jefferson Clinton.
President Clinton was very charismatic and spoke very well on and off camera. He was probably the most notorious of all the presidents who had dealings with women while he was in office, and he had the same allies in the media. Hilary Clinton stuck by her man, no matter what he did to her or the country. Starting as far back as 1980, President Clinton admitted having ongoing sexual relations with model Gennifer Flowers. Just when it looked like he was going to do wonderful things in his second term, along came Monica Lewinsky, who opened up a fresh can of worms that was originated by Paula Jones. Jones sued him for making advances towards her and threatening her when she threatened to go public. Ironically, it was a female judge who threw her case out of court, even though the Supreme Court had ruled she could pursue the case. When President Clinton denied under oath that he ever had sex with “that woman” (Monica Lewinsky), he put himself in an untenable position for the remainder of his term. When Monica produced the blue dress she was wearing at the time of the “incident” in the Oval Office, Congress pressed for impeachment. One of Clinton’s most repeated phrases is “I can’t believe she kept the blue dress”. If you look back through history (which I have done in a minimal fashion), you will see little for women to praise Democratic politicians for.

I am not going to make this article about Democrat vs. Republican. If you look closely and honestly at what both parties have done and have been responsible for, you will see that the liberal progressives are the worst friends you could have. With friends like this, you don’t need enemies. In 2008, candidate Obama convinced women that they should not vote for another woman. His campaign slogans belittled and slandered his female opponent, but the press wrote that off as being part of the political game; and women voters who were starving for something different swallowed their drivel with relish. Obama’s pledge of social justice appealed to the majority of female voters who desperately wanted things to change. The only thing they didn’t know and couldn’t elaborate on was what the country was going to change into. If the people who clamored for change knew then what they know now, I don’t think they would have voted the way they did.
Since the start of the 2012 presidential campaign, Democrats including Barack Obama have done their best to convince the women of America that the Republicans have declared war on them because of the GOP pro-life stance. Of course, the opposite is actually true. Republicans and Conservatives want to protect women who decide that they want to have their baby. That is why they support mechanisms and societies that encourage and support women who choose to have their babies. On the other hand, you have the so-called “defenders” of women who tell them they should have access to free contraception, and if they do get pregnant, they recommend the women get abortions 85% of the time. There is only one reason why they want women to have abortions. It is called GREED. For women who have an abortion, agencies like Planned Parenthood get reimbursed by the Federal Government to the tune of some $30 million dollars a year. So of course they tell women that the Republicans’ pro-life stance is hurting them, while in reality, it would bring about a big change in the way agencies would have to conduct themselves, which would lead to real reform.
Who has really declared war on women?
To start with, the current Democratic administration continues to support Egypt’s new government run by the extremist group, the Muslim Brotherhood. Imposing strict Sharia law, women become subject to torture, beatings, and humiliation by the men. Their status is not much different to that of slaves, cattle, and chickens. Women in a Muslim environment are treated as property and have just as many rights as a cow. Obama has traveled around Europe and the Middle East apologizing for the American influence and the things that Americans have done to save several countries from total collapse. At the Democratic Convention, there will be featured speakers from the radical Muslim element already present in America’s cities. It is the intent of these Muslim extremists to use the Democratic Party as a springboard for their assault on American values, including the subjugation of women. It is their aim to set up a mini-caliphate in this country. Believe me, once they have what they want, no Democrat will be able to stand in the way of Shariah. The radical Muslims want to enslave American women and have them bend to the radical Muslim idea of living. Look around the world and tell me how well you think the women are doing in those countries.

The Obama campaign has mounted many attacks on the sensibilities of intelligent self-motivated Christian women. Then there are the attacks made by Democrat Hilary Rosen saying Ann Romney has not worked a day in her life. You would think this would offend every stay-at-home mom in the country. Various studies over the years have proven that stay-at-home moms work harder and have longer hours (on average up to 60 hours a week) than many women and men in the workforce. Add to that the fact that Ann Romney raised five boys, which as anyone can imagine is a really tough full time job. Stay-at-home moms have multiple roles in the household and in many households do more than their respective counterparts in the business or academic community.
The overreaching characteristic of all the Democratic Presidents has been their likability. The public forgave many of their indiscretions and failures in office because they liked them. Likability is one of the main attributes that persuade female voters. In the past, likability overcame logic and in several instances plunged the country into disarray. If left unchallenged, it will do the same in 2012.
So who should women vote for? They should vote for the team that understands their position in life and their desire to make life better for everyone. Someone who encourages good Christian values and promotes solid economic growth through proven methods of stability and certainty. That is what a Romney presidency of inclusion and reaching across the aisle will bring. For any woman who sincerely cares about her family and the health and wealth of the country, the decision is clear. Mitt Romney is the only person who has proven he can lead this country the way a real leader should, from the front and not from the rear.
