Obama’s Effort To Build Support Among Women

The Obama campaign will intensify its efforts to boost the President’s standing with women this week with a mailing to over 1 million female voters in more than a dozen battleground states, according to The New York Times.

The campaign’s effort to rally women around the health care law had been long planned, to coincide with the second anniversary of Mr. Obama signing it on March 23, campaign officials said. But the effort has gained intensity, they added, because of recent controversies over contraception, abortion and education in Washington and in state capitals that have energized people in the campaign’s far-flung field offices who are essential to putting any national strategy into action.

Late last year, two and a half months ago, the chatter was that Obama was in trouble with his liberal base as well as the rest of the electorate.  The economy was the majority’s concern.

In the last two months, George Stephanopoulos introduced contraception into the GOP primary debate, Rick Santorum and the left stream media kept that chatter alive.  Obama announced that contraception will be covered under ObamaCare and Rush Limbaugh called a law student a slut and a prostitute.

Now, instead of focusing on the economy, energy prices and the emergent inflation that hasn’t caught the media’s attention yet, we are engaged in a culture war designed by the Obama campaign to shore up the President’s support with his base and scare women about the evil white men who run the Republican party.

How easily manipulated we are.

The general election campaign is well underway.  However the GOP is still fighting over minor differences between it’s potential candidates and is not yet engaged against Obama.

    The words and actions of the Republican candidates and Republican State Legislatures are what has torpedoed R support among women nationally. The media is just reporting on what they are doing and saying. I agree with Art’s points that the R’s should be focusing on other issues however they are not and the collapse or their support among women is basically their own doing as their positions are revealed.

    Sanotrum’s positions might win him some primary’s and caucuses in red states where the far right elements of the party are turning out however those same positions are part of the reason that is causing him to run 16 points behind the President nationally among women (Romney often taking the same positions is 13 points back.) If that continues, the 2012 election is game, set and match for the President.

    I always talk about the “middle” deciding the elections and part of that is when people who are open to looking at an alternative besides the incumbent (but not an automatic vote against the incumbent) ask themselves if the alternative candidate is acceptable. Based on recent polls, I suspect that the alternative choice (to the President) would not be found acceptable by the majority of women.

    Glad to see that you acknowledge that “evil white men” run the republican party. Something most of us have known for a long, long time now.

    Every time I think Rick can not be more of a Jerk he raises the bar.

    You idiots need to get a sense of humor.

  7. TR said at 9:49 am on March 12th, 2012:

    Oh I see when you say assinine stuff its just a joke when Republicans do it we are poisioning political discourse, being obstructionists or engaging in hate speech.

    My sense of humor is fine you just can’t seem to say anything funny.

  8. Rick Ambrosia said at 10:17 am on March 12th, 2012:

    You really are such an ass “TR”…if you noticed, or read the article, I was quoting Art, and being facetious…although, now you are making me realize that maybe its not such a stretch.

  9. Rick Gets It said at 9:36 pm on March 12th, 2012:

    Literal-mindedness is a mental deficiency…
    of the modern day Republican party.

  10. Tr said at 8:02 am on March 13th, 2012:

    Oh I see and where you being facetious when you called the Governor disgusting manes in another post

  11. Rick Ambrosia said at 8:14 am on March 13th, 2012:

    Not at all. He’s a piece of human excrement for the way he treats people..in general. He needs to go to counseling for anger management and to control his outbursts. He needs to go to counseling to learn how to talk civilly to people. Until he does that, he’s nothing more than a bully and an elected thug. I wonder if he ever put his life on the line like the Navy Seal he called an idiot. (we know he never did…) Regardless of the man’s political affiliation, he didn’t deserve to be called an idiot, and Christie needs to control himself, and he just can’t.

    Also, I never said anything at all about his hair.

  12. TR said at 9:49 am on March 13th, 2012:

    Both parties behaved badly and neither deserves to be called names. Certainly calling someone excrement is uncalled for.

    You always have an excuse for your hypocricy. Thats the problem Rick. Not the name calling the hypocricy.

    It’s really nice to see that Ricky Ambrosia Salad is making an ass out of himself again, and I haven’t even been here to start it.

    However, notice that Ricky Ambrosia Salad will now make a personal attack on me.

    As to the topic of the story, Rick Santorum could never win in November. He will be painted as extreme by Obummer.

    FYI, from my take on the situation, none of the candidates will make it to the convention with the nomination in hand. Odds are high that this will be a brokered convention, and I am happy with that.

    Remember what happened the last time when the media and the Establishment picked our candidate? We lost.

  14. Freespeaker1976 said at 6:37 am on March 14th, 2012:

    Oh, a Ricky; the guy is an idiot.

  15. Rick Ambrosia said at 8:12 am on March 14th, 2012:

    wow….Freeloader1976 got off his couch for a minute to slam me. I’m flattered. Ok, now go back to collecting those taxpayer funds. Nice work (or not) if you can get it.

  16. TR said at 7:20 am on March 15th, 2012:

    A prediction. There will be no brokered convention. Romney will win.
