It's funny to see Democrats latch onto the Akin story. They want to talk about any and everything except Obama's record on jobs, debt and poverty.
I don't agree with Akin but his words are meaningless when you compare it to the real damage done to women by Obama.
Since President Obama Took Office, The Unemployment Rate Among Women Has Increased From 7% To 8.1%. (Bureau Of Labor Statistics, www.bls.gov,
Young Women Have Fared Even Worse In The Obama Economy – Unemployment Has Increased From 12.5% To 14.4%. (Bureau Of Labor Statistics,
Nearly 5.9 Million Women Are Currently Unemployed In The Obama Economy. (Bureau Of Labor Statistics, www.bls.gov, 8/8/12)
Since President Obama Took Office, 401,000 Women Have Lost Their Jobs. (Bureau Of Labor Statistics, www.bls.gov, 8/8/12)
The Poverty Rate Among Women Is The “Highest In 17 Years” And The Extreme Poverty Rate Is “The Highest Rate Ever Recorded.” “Minorities and
women were hit hardest. The poverty rate among women climbed to 14.5% in 2010 from 13.9% in 2009, the highest in 17 years. The rate of extreme poverty
among women climbed to 6.3% in 2010 from 5.9% in 2009, the highest rate ever recorded.” (Aamer Madhani, “Obama Team Urges Swift Passage Of Jobs
Bill,” USA Today, 9/13/11)
Since President Obama Took Office, Median Household Income Has Declined More Than $4,000. “Yet real median household income in March was down
$4,300 since Obama took office in January 2009 and down $2,900 since the June 2009 start of the economic recovery, according to an analysis of census
data by Sentier Research, an economic- consulting firm in Annapolis, Maryland.” (Mike Dorning, “Obama Fails To Stem Middle-Class Slide He Blamed
On Bush,” Bloomberg, 4/30/12)
Median Family Net Worth Has Hit A Two-Decade Low. “The Great Recession shrank Americans' wealth so much that in 2010 median family net worth was no
more than it had been in 1992 after adjusting for inflation, the Federal Reserve reported Monday. Median net worth declined from $126,400 in 2007 to
$77,300 in 2010, a Fed survey of family finances found. The median marks the point where half had more and half had less.” (Martin Crutsinger,
“Fed Report: Middle Class Net Worth Tumbles,” The Associated Press, 6/12/12)
Average Weekly Wages Declined In 2011, “One Of Only Five Declines Since The Category Was Created In 1978.” “Unemployment ebbs and flows, but one
measure of the nation's economic health, average weekly wages, rarely dips. Until now. In the latest demonstration of the struggling economy that
threatens President Obama's reelection, average weekly wages fell in 2011, one of only five declines since the category was created in 1978 by the
Bureau of Labor Statistics.” (Paul Bedard, “Wages Drop, Only 5th Time In 33 Years,” The Washington Examiner, 7/2/12)
This is why the Democrats want to talk about Todd Akin or Shamus the dog. Anything but Obama's economic assault on this country.
Todd Akin has nothing to do with Romney. It's funny, the same Democrats who told us Obama doesn't agree with his 20 year Pastor and Spiritual
advisor, Jeremiah "GD America" Wright, are now trying to convince us a silly comment by Todd Akin is more important that the economic war waged by
Obama and the Democrats on Women.
