” In a CNN appearance today, Genevieve Wood, senior contributor to The Foundry, blasted the White House for promoting the myth that women are paid significantly less than men because of their sex, rather than their career or life choices.
“ Instead of celebrating” that men and women with similar jobs and levels of education make around the same, “the White House wants to portray this ‘war on women,’” Wood said on The Lead.
“ Young women today in metropolitan areas, for example, who are childless, single, young women are actually outperforming males in that same category all over the country,” Wood said in her appearance with former White House communications director Anita Dunn. “But the problem with that is, they hear this kind of rhetoric that discourages young women.” “
Thanks to the Heritage Foundation
” Since President Barack Obama took office in January 2009, the U.S. economy has employed an additional 3,590,000 people, but only 1,386,000 of those people—or 38.6 percent–have been women.
At the same time, women represent 46.8 percent of the national civilian labor force. That means women are getting a smaller share of the jobs being added to the economy (38.6 percent) than their representation in the civilian labor force (46.8 percent).
The percentage of the added jobs that have gone to women is even smaller if measured from the post-recession nadir of employment, which took place in December 2009. Since then, only 37.8 percent of the net additional jobs have gone to women.”
Compare those dismal numbers with the track record of that “known woman-hater” George W Bush …
” When President George W. Bush took office in January 2001, there were 137,778,000 people employed in the United States. Eight years later in January 2009, when Bush left office, there were 142,152,000. Of the 4,374,000 additional people employed during Bush’s full two terms, 1,518,000—or 34.7 percent—were men, and 2,855,000—or 65.3 percent—were women. “

Rich 1% Oprah, Your Racism Is Showing; Bashir’s War On Sarah Palin
Mr Dupree has the stones to take on a pair of the stupidest statements of the week that , had they been uttered by conservatives would have caused a major uproar and fueled demands for heads to roll , but since they were uttered by leftist darlings Oprah Winfrey and Martin Bashir the merit nary a raised eyebrow . Two of the mainstays of the Democratic party’s talking points , racism and the “war on women” have jumped the shark . Good for him for calling them both out .
” It’s confirmed: The “F” in John. F. Kerry stands for “Feckless.” Women around the world no longer need to wonder whether America’s secretary of state will stand boldly with them in defense of their basic rights. He won’t.
On Monday, Kerry was in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Anyone with a phone or an Internet connection inside and outside the country knows what’s been going on there. The kingdom has been rocked by women of all ages protesting the Muslim nation’s retrograde ban on female drivers. Over the past two weeks, the protesters and their supporters have taken to social media to pressure the oppressive sharia-enforcing regime. It is the only country in the world that won’t allow its women — 20 million of them — to obtain driver’s licenses.
. “I was wondering,” the journalist asked, “what your take is on women driving in Saudi Arabia?” Kerry’s take was … to take cover. “With respect to the issue of women driving here in Saudi Arabia,” he filibustered, “it’s no secret that in the United States of America we embrace equality for everybody, regardless of gender, race or any other qualification.” And then came the “but.” The crapweasel “but.”
“But it’s up to Saudi Arabia to make its own decisions about its own social-structure choices and timing for whatever events. I know there’s a debate. We actually talked about this at lunch,” Kerry ducked. What he “actually talked about” he wouldn’t say. “There’s a healthy debate in Saudi Arabia about this issue, but I think that debate is best left to Saudi Arabia, the people engaged in it, all of whom know exactly where we in the United States of America stand on this issue.” “
It’s “comforting” to know that the women of the world can expect exactly the same amount of loyalty and support from the present administration as can the rest of US allies around the globe … which is to say , none .
” Speaking to a crowd in support of Virginia Democrat Terry McAuliffe Monday, Joe Biden once again disparaged a conservative movement about which he knows precious little.
In his effort to demonize McAuliffe’s Republican opponent in Tuesday’s gubernatorial race, Biden trashed the traditional values embodied by the Tea Party movement, implicitly describing those involved as uneducated rubes.
The statewide race “has captured the attention of the entire nation,” he said, claiming the reason is a widespread disapproval of “the new Republican tea party.”
He went on to describe the patriotic movement as one in which “social recidivism is only outgunned by its hostility to science and technology and innovation and scholarship.” “
Crazy Uncle Joe must not have gotten the memo , but then again we guess it’s hard to stay informed when you spend most of your time locked in the basement .
On another note , what does it say about the dem’s confidence in their candidate if the feel the need to let Uncle Joe grab the mic ? He was certainly “without exaggeration” spreading the manure far and wide .
The Democrats’ “lady parts” jump the shark
” I’m not “outraged.” I’m bored.
These privileged young Democrat celebs haven’t stopped yapping and giggling about birth control and their swoon-worthy birth control supplier in the White House all year.
They’ve demanded RESPECT! and wheedled about the “war on women” while dressed as giant VAGINAS!. They’ve demeaned themselves by parroting bald-faced lies about Planned Parenthood and turning everything —everything —into an excuse to talk about sex and their bodies and their entitlements to our money to pay for it. We conservative women who actually challenge their arguments are then cast as mean mommies who “bully” and “stalk.”
Grow up already.
$16 trillion in debt. 8 percent unemployment. Benghazi. Bastion. Fast and Furious. Delphi. Solyndra. And the Obama campaign is seriously pimping an elite young filmmaker/actress’s indulgent ad gushing about Obama’s big hands, her birth control, and Lilly Ledbetter? “
Liberals Find out Women Aren’t Amused
” I’ll admit that as a man I don’t always understand women. They are girly and often smell powdery. That and the insides of their purses intimidate me. But I know that they have a healthy respect for money. This I understand.
If you gave them a choice between a job that pays money and free birth control, the ones I know would pick a job.
They aren’t buying into the R-WoW credo that the GOP is somehow hostile to women. And it’s not just the girls I know. According to the latest AP survey the vaunted gender gap that Obama counted on to get re-elected has disappeared. The seven-point advantage that Obama had with women in 2008 has vaporized in 2012.
“Less than two weeks out from Election Day,” reports CBSNews “Republican Mitt Romney has erased President Obama’s 16-point advantage among women, a new Associated Press-GfK poll shows.” “
” Michelle Malkin joined “Fox and Friends” to talk about the pay disparity in the Obama administration Malkin said that “women should know these facts.” “
