From the "war on women" to the war with women

Washington (CNN) – The Democratic Party is waging a battle. They want to take back the House in the 2014 midterms and maintain their majority in the Senate. And one political front is with women.

In recent years the Democratic Party has enjoyed a political advantage with women as more of them have voted for Democrats.

    The worst advocate for anything about women is Hilary Clinton. She has used her womanhood in the worst possible ways. Staying with a man who was a perverted adulterer, allowing the president to throw her under the bus on countless occasions – all to get to a power position, and the worst of all – she has no integrity. She lies, connives, and is totally self-serving. And her callousness was on full display with her famous bellowing during the Benghazi hearings, which defines her legacy as Secretary of State. There are many superior woman who outdo her on every level.

    I don't know why democrats hate Latinos so much. Why don't they care that the Spanish version of healthcare.gov has never been up and won't be for weeks or months? Why do democrats hate Latinos so much?

    If a woman votes Republican, she is either a masochist, or a Stepford Wife!

    Can't wait until she spends 8 more years in The White House! That should be enough to give you a cerebral hemorrhage, even though you aren't very cerebral!

    This is my big beef with the GOP. Abortion, who cares! If they want to kill their unborn child let them. Its not your problem..Its their problem. The war on women or with women is all about stupid abortion.

    "no integrity,lies, connives, totally self-serving, callousness,bellowing"
    So let me get this straight... you are ticked off because she has all the qualities you righties hold near and dear... and she isn't on your side?
    What... I'm not sure I get it.
    I think a strong charismatic, intelligent women is what you hate. They normally punch back and that don't sit too well with the Deacons.

    The republicans don't want to be forced through their taxes to pay for abortion. They are not trying to outlaw abortion.

    Limbaugh is really upset that the NFL has players wearing pink for breast cancer awareness. I hope the right wing sissy confronts a couple of linebackers, and tells them to take off the pink.

    With Hilary Clinton, you're mistaking strong and charismatic with vulgar and obnoxious.

    GOP in House....98% Male and 92% white...that isn't a coincidence.

    Honestly, how juvenile and insulting to women. The Democrats think we vote with our genitals. Women that the Democrats have kept unemployed and that lost their health care insurnace thanks to Obamacare will NOT be voting for Democrats. Trust me. Their mean spirited and divisive tactics are turning women off. Good work Democrats.

    Republican Party rebranding effort to attract more women voters will be a failure because Tea Partiers and social values conservatives are still in denial.

    I would vote for Hillary Clinton over any Republican anyday. She is a tough cookie and can battle against the men that want to put her down. By the way, don't you think she loved her husband and forgave him his disgressions.. I have been with my husband for forty three years and it would be strange not to have him around, since he is also my best friend. No, I am not a wimpy wife either. I worked full time for forty years and held a job of some importance. Only now I can enjoy retirement. Divorce is not an answer to every couples problems.

    No doubt GOP has waged a War on Women. From promoting reactionary social, political and economic issues to actively working against womens issues. I was a Republican over 35 yrs and left when the GOP leadership courted fringe elements to increase base. The effects of that are a party that is fractured, gave up on core platform, and now the reactionaries are running the party and waging a war on women.

    to Smith–We just do not want to pay for other people's abortions–no desire to ban it...some of us do not believe in killing another human being..

  22. ThinkAgain: The GOP owes our nation $24 billion

    Feminism is the radical idea that women are people, too.

    Dems have understood this for a long time – and their policies reflect this.
    Repubs? Not so much.

    @Tampa Tim: "Limbaugh is really upset that the NFL has players wearing pink for breast cancer awareness. I hope the right wing sissy confronts a couple of linebackers, and tells them to take off the pink."

    Then he must be really ticked off at the Oregon Ducks, who recently wore hot pink helmets, shoes and socks. Didn't seem to affect the players – they crushed the Washington State Cougars 62-38.

    The republicans, are waging war on themselves as well as everyone else. The only way to escape the carnage is to become wealthy beyond your wildest imagination, or be a corporation that controls the purse strings on K-Street. To republicans, it's all about the Benjamin's.
