For the umpteenth time, NO ONE is asking for free birth control. We want it covered under our insurance, insurance that we pay for! Keep making the false claim that women want others to pay for their birth control doesn't make it true. What's really insulting to women is the constant misrepresentation of what women want. Good thing most women see right through that lame tactic.

How you get GWB above anyone on the list is not clear to me. And even amongst Republicans, how you rank him over Eisenhower...

Johnson did great on social issues, but he flunked on Vietnam, and so that's why he bombed with me. Now I suspect the right loves him for the war, but hates him ont eh social stuff.

Funny thing about conservatives... in 1940, they protested potential US involvement in WWII.

Then they found out there was money to be made selling weaponry. Need wars for that.

And by the way, you can't 'not count' something. They did it. Own it. I did with Johnson.

How'd you feel about the last administration?

Obama isn't perfect, no president is, and some are better than others.

Over my lifetime, I'd rank them this way...

 

Let me help you out with that, from a conservative point of view...

Reagan (not even close)

GWB (this next batch are all pretty close)

GHWB

JFK

Clinton (not counting impeachment)

Ford

Eisenhower

Nixon (not counting Watergate)

Johnson

Carter

Obama (just beats out Carter for the bottom,of any list)

Yes, the states are out of line.  It is one thing to say abortion is legal another to say you will have to jump thru hoops to satisfy the state.  The truth is simple: Abortion is none of the state's business.  It is only the business of the woman.

As I stated in a previous post, I was somewhat insulted by some of the female speakers at the DNC. I'm not sure that it was their intent, but some of them, in their speeches, did speak about women as though we are helpless and unable to think or do for ourselves, without government intervention. I certainly did not get the feeling that they were speaking for me and I couldn't relate to their words. So while I may not feel as strongly as you, I do "get" the point you make.

I think we are thinking the same thing. I'm just bringing up the point that it begs the question, what do democrats think of women if they feel the must have free birth control, else they can't control whether or not they become pregnant? It's not a pretty picture. And it sure is insulting to women.

It is not just men.  As it is there is no effective male birth control.  In the US it will be difficult to get that thru congress.  The GOP will have a cow.  The love of enslaving men into servitide is high with the Gop.  Some women have a attitude about pregnancy that is it the man's financial responsibility and anything that interferes with that is some how wrong. 

Good birth control is expensive.  Many areas/states try to keep women from these method and to block sterilizations and inhibit abortions.

Speaking of incompetent idiots, how in the world did Romney manage to be a successful businessman when he clearly surrounds himself with incompetent people? It's been stunning the train wreck of a campaign he is running.

Hear, hear!

From Genesis 3:16 NIV
To the woman he said, "I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing; with pain you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you."

No. I am reasonably intelligent and reasonably able to think critically. Your Fox News comment didn't make sense, not even by layering on a claim of "working grammatically"(which also does not make sense).

And no, we ("general") don't have to admit that this administration is filled with "incompetent idiots". The previous administration certainly was though.

By all means, provide links which show definitively that Obama himself lied about the attacks. TIA.

And then there was the whole Sandra Fluke episode. She was kept from presenting her own perspective. (http://abcnews.go.com/images/Politics/statement-Congress-letterhead-2nd%20hearing.pdf) in Congressional hearings. The follow-up performance by Rush Limbaugh was absolutely appalling. Had he been an obscure unknown and hadn't kicked up such a misinformed and hypocritical fuss, Fluke would probably never have been asked to speak at the Democratic convention.

I think there's a certain profound irony in claiming that women spoke as though they were victims during the speeches. Well, duh, at least one was attacked viciously by Limbaugh and his zombie dittoheads.

When a woman does not speak out about her concerns, she's enabling her attackers to prevail and allows them to make victims of other women as well.
