"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

Are Hard Right Republicans Fit to Lead the Country? This Republican Woman Says NO!

This collage of comments against Romney is good for a laugh to see how the GOP takes back their words in order to turn into pretzels to support Romney.  Simply amazing but then we are seeing it from some of the same Republicans who trashed Akin and now support him holding a fund raiser for Akin hosted by Senators DeMint, Graham, Coburn, and Inhofe.  Seems getting a Senate seat to flip from Democrat to GOP is more important then any integrity.  Akin has a war on women that is ongoing and Romney has a war on the 47% -- neither should be elected to any office.

If Republican Senators are willing to support someone like Aiken, what kind of an agenda would Republicans have if they took over the Senate, House and the White House?  Would it be a hard right agenda where abortion is outlawed and women would be getting backdoor abortions with no medical care?  What grinds me to no end is this group of white guys being the determining factor on women's health in their minds.  They don't know what women go through or the issues they are facing -- they just want to enforce their agenda on the rest of us and many women including Republican women are not buying their koolaid.

The latest to come out of the hard right wing of the GOP is that all the polling is wrong as too many Dems and leaning Dems are being counted which will depress the vote.  News to those pundits and GOP leadership, there are a lot of Republican women who will NOT vote for a white male Republican this time with their neanderthal thinking starting with Romney.  How many Republican women are going to vote for Scott Brown now when they don't even like Warren?  Would say the percentage is dropping with his rhetoric he can tell by looking who is an Indian and who is not.  What is in the water in the Republican side of the Senate to act like a bunch of jerks this year who are alienating women along with a lot of men with their hard right stance?  

Bottom line is that women are a lot smarter than the white males of the GOP leadership want us to be.  A lot of us have quit swallowing their koolaid of the right and are starting to think for ourselves on who we are going to vote for on November 6th no matter the party.  If there is a women running for office on my ballot, she has my vote after what I have been witnessing.  I don't care the party after seeing the GOP support a man like Akin in MO who doesn't believe in equal pay for equal work.  Aiken also calls student loans a cancer, but when you have a candidate like Romney who says ask your parents for the money for college or to start a business, you know you have candidates who could care less about middle class or the poor.  Guess it is our fault for not being born with a silver spoon in our mouths.  

The GOP stands to lose a lot of women over this election along with minorities and males who don't want to be associated with this type of thinking where women and minorities are supposed to be inferior to the intellect of the white male Republicans like Rush Limbaugh and others.  That is exactly how today's Republican Party is coming across to many in this Country.  The GOP attacks on benefits of our veterans and military, senior's social security and medicare, civil service pay and retirement, teachers, fire, and police along with wanting to destroy all unions seems to be the orchestrated agenda of the wealthy Republicans IMHO.  When the wealth donors say jump to Republican members of Congress, they seem to be asking "How high?" as they are doing everything in their power to keep tax cuts and loopholes for the wealthy.  

This group of Republicans in leadership seem to have little empathy for people as a whole and buy into the 'every man for themselves' ignoring that we are all in this together as We the People.  My prediction for November 6th, 2012, election is that the GOP is going to lose big with their narrow mindedness and refusing to heed Jeb Bush's advice that we have to reach out to minorities -- bet he never figured they would be attacking women too!   

You know it is bad when you are watching a political show of left leaners and they are praising George W Bush for his compassionate conservatism or listening to Nancy Pelosi say that GW was very nice and respectful when she worked with him.  Says a lot about the class of George W Bush who was trashed by the likes of Limbaugh and others on the right.   He had class which we are not seeing out of Republicans in leadership today including Romney/Ryan along with some Republican male candidates for Senate like Akin, Brown, Thompson, and others.  They really don't like running against women for Senate if their comments  debate are any indication.  Yet they want women to vote for them?
