“Albright: Why Would Women Vote Romney?”

“…for all the talk of Romney’s trouble among women voters, no Democrat has put it in the terms that former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright did in an interview with The Huffington Post on Monday. “I’m not sure I’m going to state this exactly right,” she said, sitting amidst a sea of convention-related activity and daytime wine drinkers in the Westin hotel lobby in downtown Charlotte. “But I think there are some who believe they are actually protecting women, you know, and that it is better for women to be taken care of. I think women want to take care of themselves, and I think having a voice in how that is done is very important. And frankly, I don’t understand — I mean, I’m obviously a card-carrying Democrat — but I can’t understand why any woman would want to vote for Mitt Romney, except maybe Mrs. Romney.” Albright then revised her pool of rationally thinking female Romney supporters to include his five daughters-in-law, an obvious but hardly generous expansion.

Barack Obama Accepts His Party’s Nomination!

Barack Obama accepted the Democratic Nomination

Last night President Obama and Democrats joined to be a force of one seeking his re-election as President of the United States. Barack Obama gave a rousing speech which highlighted the several ways in which Team Romney-Ryan lacks foreign policy credentials a proper regard for our military and veterans.  Some say he capitalized on the omissions from the Republican National Convention.  Have you joined Team Obama-Biden?  It’s not too late!

Ann Romney knows how to give a speech.  She really loves her husband and has a great marriage.  However, she carries herself as an aristocrat augmented by her request, “Trust me” about Mitt’s credentials.  Don’t be concerned about the details.  One would not by a used car from smooth talker like Ann.  Well, not before having our mechanic check under the hood.  And, what about that gratuitous exclamation, “I love women.” [For obvious reasons she had to explain quickly what she meant.]  She was hoping to reach the women voters who are angry about the GOP “War on Women.”  Now, Mitt Romney is the standard-bearer for the roll back of civil rights for women.  While Mitt loves Ann, he does not love women in general and seeks to control them…like he controlled Seamus when he decided to put him in a kindle, tied it to the roof of his car for a 12 trip.  The pet(?) got so sick it lost control of its bowels. How can Mitt love one woman so much and not love women in general?  BTW, Ann, no one is attacking Mitt for his success.  We just abhor presidential candidates who trade in secrets…like the ones you two are hiding in your tax returns.  Also, the excuses you use for this are lame. I must admit that I watched the convention last night in a casual fashion.  However, it looked lily-white to me.  Well, the exceptions were Condoleezza Rice and the female governor of South Carolina.  America is growing more diverse with each passing day. But, not the Republican Party. They need more than Bobby Jindal! They used to be an important part of the fabric of our politics. But Republicans have been diminished by their gradual adoption of political mores and tactics like, lying to voters, Nazi-style and soviet-style propaganda techniques, etc., playing dirty to win!  Despite their efforts our political face and population is growing more and more brown, black and yellow.
