    " The view of the left is that women (and those of minority races, different sexual orientations or minority religions) have the right to make their own choices."

    The view of the left is for government to make all of our choices, example given, OBAMACARE!

    " When it comes to the "reproductive" politics, it's about women having the right to choose... the choice to have an abortion or use birth control.

    That's not portraying females or minorities as victims. It's seeing them as equals."

    That is not seeing them as equal, it is seeing them as a political pawn to be manipulated for votes. The same applies to immigration.

    The democrats understand the female vote and is why pretty boy John Edwards received a place on the ticket.

    Over the years I have spent a great amount of my time at the Yacht & Country Clubs. What I hear Republican supporters say about women and Latinos astounds me. If you are a women or Latin voter, you would have to be nuts to vote for the Republican party.

    Trust me, the Republican party doesn't respect you!

    FYI.... There really is no War on Women.... How dare the Dems and most media condemn and make fun of Romney when he basically said that he had stacks of women's resumes and that he hires a lot of women in his companies!

    We would be better off today if Romney was President instead of Obama!

  7. The GOP Solution

    The GOP Solution: Turn all the Old, Sick, Poor, Non-white, Non-christian, Female, and Gay people into slaves. Then whip them until they are Young, Healthy, Rich, White, Christian, Male, and Straight. Or until they are dead. Then turn them into Soylent Green to feed the military during the next "unfunded/off-the-books" war. And don't forget the GOP all time favorites........TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH!!!..........and........GET RID OF SS AND MEDICARE!!!

      • Smitty, the "level headed" GOPher

        I can tell that Smitty is a "level headed" GOPher because BS spews out of BOTH corners of his mouth.

      The democratic response is pretty much all women are vaginas in need of an abortion. Probably on welfare, making less than a man and too dumb to care. Sounds pretty crass, but that is what they sell.

      They forgot I own a business, am raising some kids, and I know for a fact nothing is free. In fact democrats forgot I might find their view of women insulting.

        Democrats respect women. They believe that women are as important as men, unlike Republicans.

      Still copy/pasting hate. Surely, you can come up with something new, however from it's not looking promising.

    Cupp has an odd view of the way the left looks at women.

    The view of the left is that women (and those of minority races, different sexual orientations or minority religions) have the right to make their own choices. When it comes to the "reproductive" politics, it's about women having the right to choose... the choice to have an abortion or use birth control.

    That's not portraying females or minorities as victims. It's seeing them as equals.

      But Kurt, the Democrats do see women as minorities and treats their causes as a minority issue.

        True... All the Dems say women are victims.......In America we ALL have the ability to do what we want.... unless the Government intervenes, that is.

    All I know is if during my annual physical I see a Republican proctor peaking over my ob/gyn's shoulder I'm going to pull out my dumb gun and get rid of him or her.
