In his bitter words.
Really? Look at the GOP platform on abortion (here's a hint, it totally ignores Roe v Wade, except as a case to be overturned).Then there's the insanity of insurance covering male performance enhancing drugs but not contraception for women. Oh, say the loopy, that's an infringement on religious beliefs. Nobody is compelling a woman to use contraception, only to make it cheap and easy to access which would then probably result in fewer unplanned pregnancies and abortions. Yet the loopy do NOT perceive the linkage, which does tend to make one think that they believe that women are not meant to control any aspect of their reproduction.
Ever heard of the Guttmacher Institute? They track the many legislative actions (by conservatives/Republicans) to limit or totally eliminate abortion services. Look up the personhood definition now being espoused by those same people. A clump of cells has more rights than a fully sentient woman. Maybe you're not aware of these developments but they do exist.
It's not "war" in the literal sense of the word, but maybe you can come up with a term which expresses how women are being treated as though they don't quite have the same rights and privileges as men. I am remembering Rush Limbaugh's screed against Sandra Fluke. He exemplifies the more misogynistic wing of the GOP. Unfortunately, that wing seems to be getting more active and more vocal.
"Damit"? Why? Because you don't think Romney as a certain ...... errr ....... ummmm ....... elastic relationship with truthfulness? Take a look at this excerpt from http://www.politifact.com/personalities/mitt-romney/statements/byruling/false/
