I missed this a couple of days ago, but reader Mike V brought it to my attention this morning, and it’s definitely worth watching. MoveOn spokesman Justin Ruben appeared on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 to amplify their claim that the Republican insistence on using ObamaCare funds to pay for the student-loan subsidy program was just another example of the War on Wimmenses. When Cooper points out that MoveOn had nothing to say when Democrats proposed to use the fund for other priorities, the MoveOn flack stammers, “I think that’s just not true,” but Cooper then drops an Obama bomb on his head. MoveOn’s outgunned mouthpiece then makes the claim that MoveOn fights Obama “all the time! … We’ve cut ads against Obama!” Er

Watch the CNN Video


Watch this video can't stand CNN but got to give Cooper some props to nailing this guy.

Ain't never seen an ad from saying a bad word out Obama never have seen it.

So Obama cuts the same money nothing is done and they turn around and cry "War on Women" in the same breath.

Dunno whether to laugh or cry at this stupidity.

The "War on Women" by the GOP is very real. I've never in my life seen a push this immense to turn women into second class citizens.

It's not about the abortion issue. It's the contraception issue. The GOP has completely lost their minds over 'vagina' and are acting like misogynistic tyrants.

If this "war on women" is a Republican agenda,

What exactly is there to gain ???

Or is somebody else just making it all up to cast blame ?

Details anyone ?

The "war on women" is manufactured outrage whose sole purpose to get votes.

That is all it is.

That makes sense.

And it seems the only women that are shouting are the Democrats.

We don't hear too many wild accusations and complaints from seemingly Republican women do we ?

When I was an undergrad PoliSci major, my professor made me read 'What's the Matter with Kansas' for independent study. The basic premise, if I remember correctly, was that there are all these dumb, conservative farmers in Kansas whose clear economic best interest is to vote for progressives and socialists but that 'culture war' issues blind them into voting for republicans.

Well there you go. That's how liberals see voters. If you can't provide for the people economically, rile them up with culture war issues. The idea that conservatives are 'irrational' according to academia when they vote against candidates who offer them subsidies because those same candidates are pro-choice, but liberals are never 'irrational' when voting for a president presiding over a sluggish economy all because of his pro-choice stance --- it baffles me.

It can never work both ways with these people, because you see, they're "ALWAYS RIGHT" and disagreement is 'IRRATIONAL.' That's the new liberal world view. Its scary.

Except for the billions of dollars Obama and the Democrats cut from programs that affect women. I guess you didn't actually watch the video where Anderson Cooper brought this up and Ruben said:

"When President Obama is taking billions of dollars out of this, that’s wrong and will have a disproportionate effect on women.

When Anderson Cooper then says, "So Obama's waging a war on women?"
Ruben says, "I don't think it's fair to say Obama's waging a war on women, and of course not."
Cooper says, "But the Republicans are?"
Ruben says, "Well, yeah."

Seriously, Anderson Cooper has just been elevated to Grand Poobah of reporting. Especially when he said, "Because my job is to report on facts. Not to meet your agenda."
