Hey Mitt, can you believe that the American people still think we are on their side?
As in the first debate, Romney in the second debate once again came out onto the stage lying and denying.
When I first heard the “binders full of women” comment from Romney, I thought it was hilarious. As it turns out, however, even that little anecdote was a complete lie.
On Tuesday night Romney made this statement in response to a question on whether he supports equal pay for equal work. (He never did answer the question because as far as anyone knows, he doesn’t support it):
Everything that is old is new again...Welcome to the GOP bizarro world
The Republican Party can claim all they want that they are not waging a war in women, but as long as they continue to say and do things like this, they are totally undermining that claim and exposing their true agenda.
“Just two hours after a U.S. district judge stopped a Texas law that would have eliminated Planned Parenthood’s participation in the state’s Women’s Health Program, Federal Appeals Judge Jerry E. Smith issued an emergency stay that lifted that order.
“A string of suspicious incidents at Planned Parenthood clinics across the country has given the organization reason to believe that anti-abortion activists are targeting it in a new organized sting operation.
According to Planned Parenthood spokesperson Chloe Cooney, clinics in at least 11 states have reported two dozen or more “hoax visits” over the past several weeks, in which a woman walks into a clinic, claims to be pregnant and asks a particular pattern of provocative questions about sex-selective abortions, such as how soon she can find out the gender of the fetus, by what means and whether she can schedule an abortion if she’s having a girl.
It is really tragic that a foundation that has done so much to advance women’s breast health in this country has become politicized. For a non-profit and especially a charity like SGK, perception is everything. If people perceive that something is bad or wrong, it doesn’t matter if they are or not. This decision is going to stay with SGK for years. Probably until they close their doors from lack of interest. This is the type of thing that can destroy a charity.
Yes, the decision by the Susan G. Komen Foundation was done for purely political, (the Republican and conservative anti-choice crowd), reasons.
