Democrats, not GOP, are hostile to women

The Democratic strategists who claimed that there was a Republican “war on women” obviously were unaware of their blatant hypocrisy because it seems the real war has been waged primarily by Democrats. Anthony Weiner and former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner are only the latest in a long line of Democrats who have been an absolute disgrace while party leaders and the media seem to be oblivious to their behaviors. Weiner, Filner, Eliot Spitzer, John Edwards and Bill Clinton have all shown their real regard for women in the way they have preyed upon, used and degraded their wives and those around them. Yet has anyone in their party ever sincerely questioned their judgment?

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and even NOW President Terry O’Neill never called on Weiner or Spitzer to get out of their races and yet the Democrats are supposed to be the default protectors of women? Their silence is deafening. The arrogance of these perpetrators is only reinforced by this quiet approval, and so now the lie that maintains this creepy bunch’s quest for power is also being used to accuse Republicans of being the ones hostile toward women.

Remember, one of the biggest faults of Mitt Romney was that he had “binders” full of women to choose from for Cabinet posts – as if that is a negative! The manufactured offenses progressives try to dream up are nothing compared to the reality of what they themselves have done. How long can they maintain this ludicrous double standard? Eventually, even the low-information crowd will notice, especially those with the integrity to be honest about this issue.
