    I just saw this ad and, conisdering the data in it is all backed up on Bls.gov, it does appear that the policies of the Obama administration actually have disproportionatly hurt working women in the USA

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-ky5Obzk5A]American Crossroads: "Obama's War on Women" - YouTube[/ame]



    All the complaints about the "republican war on women", in light of those facts, has me thinking "Doth Protest Too Much"

    To you? Whats the point. You're not able to think rationally or have an honest discussion so I'll save my energy.

    it's propaganda....

    and what exactly would you have done or republicans have done to help this situation? Huh?

    Take their welfare away? Take what assistance is given to the single mothers away? make them more poor? How come the wealthiest... with the huge tax breaks that they maintain due to them needing to "hire" during this recession done nothing? have these people hired these women with the tax break money, or banks who received TARP money?

    There's a thread on this already P P.

    poverty has increased for many, why do just women get the spotlight?
    The recession that put more people in poverty was well under way before Obama took office.
    Please try some new ad homina topped hyperbole.
    More people went into poverty over the last 6 years than the previous and that would be under bush and the repubs.

    ORLY?:eusa_shifty:

    When you say, "it is all backed up on Bls.gov" you really mean that ONLY the stat about 780,000 women being umeployed "... is all backed up on Bls.gov" right?

    That is literally the only stat backed up by bls.gov, think you got in a hurry or something lol.

    What figures in the ad are innaccurate? BLS.GOV backs up the numbers in the ad.

    I'm not sure if it constitutes a "liberal war on women", hence the question mark in my title, but the actual facts seem to make the democrat talking point that "the republicans are bad for women" seem a bit, well, hypocritical.

    I'm not really sure where I'm looking for the discussion about the video to go but I did want to talk about it so....here I am.

    Since there is already a thread on this and stats were provided to prove you wrong, I will not repost it.

    :lol: talk about propoganda, nice dishonest portrayal of the repubs there.

    I think the republican's would not have tried to rely on govt spending through borrowing to prop up the economy, which would have resulted in a stronger economy and more jobs for working women.
