Last night, after toasting Andrew Breitbart, I enjoyed a number of good conversations with a great variety of right-of-center bloggers, blogresses and blog readers, chief among them, the ever-insightful Joy McCann, AKA Little Miss Attila. Among the issues we considered were the contraception kerfuffle, the rising price of groceries and the apparent insecurity in the Obama camp.
I speculated that the Democrat’s internal poll show that his support is very soft, that he has a hard core base, perhaps as high as 40% who definitely plan on voting for him eight months hence. And in the surveys showing him leading his Republican challengers, many of those currently backing the incumbent indicate that they could change their mind. Listening to Joy,* I began to wonder if the president’s polls have been showing soft support among women, hence the Democrats’ attempt to peddle the dishonest notion of a “Republican War on Women.”
Joy wonders how effective that strategy will be, quoting one of the good “Prof. Reynolds’ readers” who once put it this way, “a Democrat who frightens women cannot win anything. Period.” In a post today, the good professor expanded on that point, “This is why the Obama Administration is trying so hard to silence its critics. They know they’re going to have problems enough between now and November. They’d rather talk about birth control.”
Among those problems is this sign of an economic slowdown.
