"I a rubber, you are glue" tactic. Objectively, the GOP has a huge gender gap problem with women voters, and if they can muddy the water by trumping up a Dem gender gap problem then their political problem is mitigated somewhat.
The unfortunate thing is that the 'I am rubber, you are glue' tactic actually works.
Liberuls hate it when they are "outed."
All this negativity directed towards Ann by liberals, and it's Republicans that have an issue with women?
The only 'negativity' I might have would be directed towards her attitude, with regard to the Hillary Rosen statement. Her supposed personal offense at Hillary Rosen's true (but impolitic) statement is questionable, considering her later offhand remark about the Rosen statement being a 'gift'. You can't be simultaneously 'offended' by the truth, while at the same time privately delighting in it, as a political gift.
Secondly, I would question the competence of any Presidential candidate who would make a public statement about relying upon his own wife to pass judgement on 'what women think are important'. As far as I know, Ann Romney has no specific competency to make such judgments.... her opinion is no less valuable, but no MORE valuable, than any woman on the street.
I'm sure Mitt respects her opinion (after all, don't we all respect our wife's opinions?), but presuming to accept her opinion as a policy-making consideration isn't what I'd call competent.

What a bunch of ticky-tacky women. When the guy at the plate hits one right into the pitcher’s glove and, the pitcher’s wife stands up and cheers…who freaking cares if she’s cheering the pitcher for making the catch or the dumb sap that hit it?
This whole debate is silly and dishonest. "Work" has never been defined as staying home and raising children. Romney wants welfare moms to have the dignity that comes with work. He doesn't mean stay home and raise the kids.
I'm tired of this dishonest BS. Ann Romney had the financial option to stay home. The fact that she thinks every woman in America has that luxury is but another example of how out of touch with most Americans this couple is.
Congress begins every day with a prayer. Enough said.
But please tell me what was 'wrong' about it.
And WTF is this claim of 'horrific attitude' all about?

Never held a job. Do all jobs to you have to be attached to a bloody pay check. Does that make it a job?
However, I've never heard Barack Obama say that, in a contentious issue before the American political scene, he derived his opinion from asking his wife. I'd like to think that a President would draw from many sources, and have the good sense to not imply that he was reflecting his wife's opinion.

when many people are facing economic uncertainty the republicans put forth a candidate from the gilded class, yea that is smart
more than half his base doesn't even like him
Smart when the dems did it in 1932?
Remember FDR, His money, the depression?
When Obama hits 50% approval, then you can say 50% of the people like him too. Hasn't reached that number yet.
Nope not at all Pushing or trying to push the idea that Obama has more than 50% who like him.Wardd. What you said Romney having more than 50% who don't like him holds true for Obama too. That is not grasping straws.
and again just last week. More importantly, he consistently gets high ratings from women, youth and Hispanics. Don't forget that more than half of the voters are women, and the Hispanic/youth voters are steadily increasing.
WOW! twice in three years and polls are taken almost weekly. What an accomplishment..I suppose the poll you mentioned is one of the liberal medias.Can or will you identify the source here or should I guess? You use this source about 100% of the time and for I know, it could be out of some free, weekly rag put out in someone's garage.
different polls give different numbers:
I wouldn't personally take one on you wardd. It's already obvious what the outcome would be. Somewhere close to the approval ratings of congress, lawyers, and the like. If you came close to breaking 12%, I'd be surprised. Of course that ia assuming you would vote for yourself twice.

which has the most notorious conservative leaning bias.
Anyway you try to spin, you cannot deny that Obama has better polling that Romney.
You would have seen that I used Gallup,
which historically has a roughly neutral bias, and if anything it leans GOP too.
No links on 181 and 186 after your original C&P. Those are the only posts you wrote not a link I was looking for..Oh I see you mentioned it. Well then, here is the gallup poll this week. Do you see 500% there for Obama? It's your poll.Mitt Romney is supported by 47% of national registered voters and Barack Obama by 45% in the inaugural Gallup Daily tracking results from April 11-15. Both Obama and Romney are supported by 90% of their respective partisans.And what you posted in #181 was an article supposedly based on a poll. Most of your C&Ps appear to come from only one source based on format, point size and and composition.The gun C%Ps all came from the same source too, right?

After 3 years in office, are thse numbers in the mid 40's as much as he has? My doesn't say that much of any good for his performance. All pollers have said he has to have at least mid 50 polls to win. Not there yet is it? Long way to go isn't it? Better do something except whine. Americans hate whiners from both sides.
I don't agree.b You can. Feel free.
I'm not whining you obviously don't know what whining is or regarding Obama, just overlook it.q
