Women are “Violently” Opposed to Mitt Romney


Romney is far behind Obama in popularity among women. He has been reported to be almost 20 points behind President Obama, at 57% to 38%.With Robert Bork as the person appointed by Romney, to advise him on appointment of Supreme Court Justices, that margin might become even higher.

Recognizing that Romney has significant work to do to improve his standing with women, he has come out recently in favor of renewal of the Violence Against Women Act. This is perhaps the only thing transparent about Mitt Romney. It was just 10 days ago that Romney didn’t know what the Lilly Ledbetter fair pay act was, and whether he supported it.  When his administrative aids did respond, the best that they could say, after thinking about it, was that Romney had no plans to revoke the law requiring equal pay for women.

Romney’s lack of concern for women’s issues was evident in 2008 when he was asked if he was in favor of renewing the Violence Against Women Act, and he didn’t even know what the act was.  More recently he has demonstrated his lack of concern for economic issues affecting women by indicating that he gets all his information from his wife who is wealthy, and has never worked outside the home.

Indifference to the struggles of women is almost as offensive as outright support for the degradation of women.

  2. I’m way past thinking Romney has a tin ear. I think his ongoing stupidity about women, minorities and gays is a reflection of his insular life as a rich white guy or.Mormon or both. Regardless, the bubble he lives in (and from which he takes his counsel() is illl-suited to governing our diverse country.

    P.S. Malia, check into whom he made Lt. Governor in MA. Haley was a rich GOP donor who was never seen during his tenure. Woe to any female appointee in his Cabinet. Romney likes women to be “seen but nor heard”.

  3. Women are in big trouble in this country if we don’t get these insane Republicans out of office. I can see they want to take the vote away from us. I believe the wealthiest Republicans with all the money are carrying out the war on women. They don’t want our input, they want us out of the way. They want us to be second class citizens. If we don’t act now and fight back, they will continue to run over us. Is there no way to impeach any of the members of the scotus?

    1. Romney, Mormans, and Rich Republicans. Give ’em enough time and they will bring back polygamy. No ex-wives, no alimony. A whole stable of Stepford Wives. It is time to re-read Margaret Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale.

      Girls, women, ladies and feminazis we must get out the vote. Don’t be screwed by a Republican ever again.

  4. Willard’s support of this particular act still does nothing to alter the fact that his economic policies are inimical to women and our families. It also doesn’t alter the fact that he has come out in support of defunding Planned Parenthood and personhood legislation, both of which would be disastrous in terms of increasing unwanted pregnancies, illegal abortions, and gynecological illness like breast and uterine cancers. He is a hollow, shallow man who has no clue about life outside his insular bubble of wealth, and even less empathy.
