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, 8/8/12)

Young Women Have Fared Even Worse In The Obama Economy – Unemployment Has Increased From 12.5% To 14.4%. (Bureau Of Labor Statistics, www.bls.gov, 8/8/12)

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)

There's more.


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.

this is silly
unemployment for almost every demographic has gone up since he became president
he inherited a recession and problems that have been compounding for decades
its ridiculous how people fail to realize none of this can or does happen overnight and that these are the results of past decisions as much or more so than current decisions
im not going to place blame and im not going to give my opinion of presidents past or current but regardless of what i think of obama to say he is responsible for the recession is ignorant or disingenuous

Considering it was a little thing like the Great Recession of 2008-9 that led to everyone's spike in unemployment, and that Great Recession being caused in large part to GOP policies, which to this day they've continued to push or obstruct any attempt to recover from, as an excuse to blame Obama for "hurting women" worse than a social-Darwinist like Todd Akin, a pretty laughable stretch of the imagination.

The GOP is severely deficient on woman's issues. 'Nuff said.

I see. Let's blame Bush and excuse the horrible policies of Barack Obama LOL.

Obama himself took responsibility in Feb. of 2009. He said If I don't get things done, I will be a one term President.

But now, the zombie Obamaites say Obama's policies have nothing to do with his horrible record. Let's just erase Obamacare and the shovel ready stimulus jobs from memory.

Once again, another ignorant Right wing talking point and I'm sure one being spoken by a man. The reason for higher female unemployment is that jobs in the federal bureaucracy and the teaching profession are mostly filled by women. Obama has cut the federal workforce substantially (the Right are unable to acknowledge this) and Republicans have caused teachers to be laid off across the country as they promote austerity in their state budgets.

It has really come to this folks, if it is a political statement about the opposition and comes out of the mouth of the Right, it is almost certainly a lie.

I'm an ex-Republican and would not give a plug nickel for the lot of the sorry and sick generation of liars, zealots, bigots and misogynists (look it up Right wingers...we both know you're too ignorant to know what it means otherwise) that have taken over the Republican Party.

What's happening is no more Bush's fault than it is Obama's. The president is not king of the economy. These things happen for lots of reasons.

To extrapolate the recession's effects on women in the workforce and turn that into the president 'hurting women' is completely absurd.

141 posts of you shilling for the GOP since you joined the site, but yeah, keep calling anyone an obamanite for disagreeing with you and reminding us what an economic nightmare the GOP policies are, as evidenced by the last GOP president. Thirty years of trickle-down Reaganomics have left the country destitute and in the hands of the oligarchy, but apparently it was all supposed to be fixed overnight by one man, who had nothing but fierce resistance from the very party that put us in this mess. And to top that off, we're supposed to believe that Obama is somehow worse for woman's issues than the misogynist policies of the GOP and nutbags like Todd Akins.

Maybe you should read what a former Reagan treas. sec. and policy adviser Paul Craig Roberts had to say about his former bosses trickle-down theory, and how harmful it has been to the employment status of ALL Americans;

No wonder the Obama Left is constantly shouting and yelling about Republicans being against women !!

They use the same old Lefty trick.........

Shift blame to hide their own guilt.

The Left wants the controversy to continue.

They have nothing substantial to campaign on.

You source Mitt Romney's website to convince us how bad Obama is? Seriously?



Todd Akin has nothing to do with Romney.


Actually, that's not true. Akin and Ryan have co-sponsored 8 anti-abortion bills together, trying to redefine rape, de-fund Planned Parenthood and enact "Personhood" law.

Paul Ryan and Todd Akin co-sponsored 8 anti-abortion bills in 112th Congress.

S&F, for a very true and accurate thread (and yes, from a WOMAN). That cretin in the White House has done nothing to help me or my family, and everything to make it larder for everyone I know, men and women alike.

I can't believe some are still playing the "blame Bush" game! The first two years in office, he had a completely Democratic Congress - House AND Senate - and they could not even manage to pass a budget. Still haven't, and now they pretend it's the fault or Republicans.

Nope, I don't want someone in office that can't even take any personal responsibility for his own failures. When Bush was in office, my family was better off. Since Obama took office, I know tons that lost their jobs, and still can't get another one, because of layoffs due to HIS policies. As a military family, with nothing like enough pay, we got literally a THIRD less back in taxes, and that clown sat there and claimed that the lower income people would "benefit" from his tax changes. gee, really? Lower income meaning whom, exactly? NO ONE I know benefited! I have a relative well below poverty level that also got far LESS back.

No, that man is no friend to women, or men, or Americans in general. The GOP? Being pro-life means saving the lives of a lot of people, male AND female. That isn't "anti-woman" in any way. It's anti-genocide. As a woman, I am sick to death of people claiming that being pro-life is somehow "anti-woman". That is a flat out lie, and insulting to women. How is being against murdering babies anti-woman? What, to be a woman today, you have to support killing innocent children? Really? When the pro-abortion side protests killing any female babies, they can talk about being pro-woman. Not before. Of course, that won't happen.

It's not the presidents place to give anyone a job. That is the job of these so called job creators you know the ones that have been committing fraud by taking tax breaks and letting unemployment go up.

You shouldn't be looking for the president to help you that's your job not his. His policies have basically been nothing but an extension of Bush's policies.

It's amazing that the same people who criticize Obama for being "socialist" and hate that the government is so involved in our lives, think he should be responsible for giving them a job, keeping the price of gas down and making their lives more comfortable... I've never understood this position.

What Obama's done for women in the policies of equal pay, women's business loans, women's health and medical care and women's education make it crystal clear that he is working to support women's freedom and advancement.

Oh Look, another Romney campaigner. And to think we were running short of those.

Pretty clever campaign tactic if you ask me. But they should hire smarter posters.

The finance decisions of a President are delayed a year. So most of 2009 was Bush fiscal decisions.

Therefore, part of 2013 will be Obama's.

So Mitt's comeback is "the economy sucks and women suffer"? Even though you cannot blame Obama alone for the state of the economy?


For crying out loud, the GOP isn't even for equal pay!

Even if your strike at Obama was valid (which it isn't) I'd still say Akin's idiotic comments are way more on the $**T list of women then "Obama causing more women to be unemployeed".

Still haven't, and now they pretend it's the fault or Republicans


Just so you know, the GOP had a meeting the night of President Obama's inaugaration. It included such conservative figureheads as Newt Gingrich.

They agreed on one course of action : STOP OBAMA AT ALL COST, in all actions, at every corner, in every meeting.

Would love to call it pretend, but not excactly. More like treasonous behavior by the GOP. But you can pretend it didn't happen.

Yeah I remember when Obama wrecked the economy and started two wars and got us all this fine mess. He may not have been President then but, I am sure he and the Muslims, Reptilians, Communists, NWO, CIA, space aliens he was working for did it. I am sure it has nothing to do with that upstanding Bush Jr. that was in office.

I totally see how the economy is worse for women than "legitimate rape". How could I have failed to see where forcing a woman to birth a child of rape (legitimate rape) is better than being unemployed. I mean their bodies have a way of stopping unwanted pregnancies anyway, right? But the body does not have a way to gain employment, so...

Seriously?

SERIOUSLY?
