Have Obama’s internals shown weakening support among women?

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.

*who later summarized her thoughts in this post.



  1. Yes. Quite amazingly to the Obama Party, women are actually worrying themselves about the economy, jobs, national defense, the crushing debt, the downgrade of our country’s credit, the debasement of the currency, the cronyism and incompetence, the wasting of hundreds of billions of dollars of “stimulus”, the rank corruption of Barack Obama Party members like Nancy “Insider Trading” Pelosi and Jon “I Don’t Know Nothin’ ‘Bout No $1.2 Billion” Corzine, and so forth.

    So Obama decides to try to buy them off with free abortions. To help, he gets Pelosi to trot out Sandra “Scrapey” Fluke to tell her horror stories about how she and her fellow rich white Georgetown co-eds driving around in their BMWs and living in their DC townhouses can’t get their rich white DC boyfriends like Levi to pay their thousands of dollars in abortion bills, and thus they need to charge it off to poor and working-class families.

    I suppose if you are the typical liberal woman like Levi and rusty describe who has no thoughts other than her menstrual cycle, that would make sense. But I doubt the women entrepreneurs being squashed by government regulations, the women businesspersons being forced to lay off and cut back, the women watching the public schools turn out crappier and crappier product for more and more money, the women paying taxes to fund deadbeats down the street, and the like are going to turn the country over to the SCOAMF and his party of Flukes so they don’t have a $9 per month bill for contraceptive pills.

  2. Dan,

    You repeatedly call for civility in political discourse and in your view the left is more guilty of name calling and the coarseness of most political discourse. When you toasted Breitbart did you bemoan the fact the he referred to Senator Kennedy when he died as a “piece of excrement”, did you call your co-blogger to task for his tweets about calling for the signing of petitions to support Rush Limbaugh in slut shaming women?

    Does the current republican discourse on women raise any questions in your mind as to why your party’s candidates appear to be losing support?

    nd30: before you respond, no I have never supported walking children on leashes at the Folsom Street Fair , so STFU and ask the nurse for more meds. Yes, I concede not very civil discourse.

  3. Will Obama return a million campaign donation from uber-misogynist Bill Maher?

  4. Well, let’s start by outlining what language Brendan and Sandra Fluke feel is perfectly acceptable to use toward women.

    And then let’s follow by pointing out what language Brendan and the gay and lesbian community think is perfectly acceptable language to describe Dan.

    Long story short, this isn’t a principled request on Brendan’s part. It’s the act of an unprincipled partisan bigot who will justify any action by an Obama supporter.

  5. Dan has asked for civility, Bruce has asked to keep it classy,
    And although Cardinal Dolan is not someone who is sitting on my side of the fence he
    Had a great response on Sunday. Maybe NDT might begin to heed this sage advice

    Timothy Cardinal Dolan chided Rush Limbaugh on Sunday, saying the campaign against the White House birth control policy shouldn’t be “pugnacious.”

    “Whatever we do, and however strongly we feel, we do it charitably, we do it civilly,” Dolan said after Sunday morning Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

    “We don’t judge the motives of other people. We just try, in a confident, peaceful, inviting way, to make our position felt, to invite other people to respect it.”

  6. Brendon and rusty, you crack me up. You are typical hypocritical liberals. Sure you want civility. Well, when you get the many on your side to act and speak with civility, then we will care when the one or two on our side get so flipping frustrated with with the games that they respond in kind. I am a female, and I completely agree that Fluke has a very slutty argument for demanding free birth control. Nice try on changing the subject. But guess what, we really don’t care what you think, how “offended” you are, or frankly, what you want. You don’t deserve free anything, nor do you deserve civility. We have put up with the cr&ap fom the left, we stayed civil, and you used it against us. Well I am done. And I guess I am not the only one. Get used to it. And go whine to someone who cares.

  7. Brendan is not only a Marxist radical but he’s also not very imaginative.

    “RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.’
