Sandra Fluke: Republicans
Can´t Win Female Vote ´Until
Their Policies Change´

Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/16/2013 2:44:09 PM

Sandra Fluke, a former "reproductive justice" advocate at Georgetown Law School, has a new mission: getting more women to run for elective office. In a brief interview on MSNBC Friday morning, Fluke was asked if Republicans are remiss in not asking more women to run for office. "I think there are a variety of concerns about how we get women into office," she responded. "It´s not only about asking women, which is something we need to do -- but also about making sure that the party leadership and those in elected office are looking for women to succeed them." Fluke,

Comments:
She´s back! I have missed her so. s/o Every time I see her or the pathetic, perverse Wendy Davis, I get angry because I don´t see a strongwilled Republican come out and denouce every lie they spout to prove how foolish those wenches´ assertions really are.

This article brings something out that I have said before. The Republican Party (mostly RINOS, moderates to liberals) doesn´t reach out to women and minorities, while the Tea Party (conservative) does. "Tea Party" has been so demonized that it is no longer a "good" name, but it is a good third, hopefully soon to be second political party. It may take some years, and it may be too late by then, but the Republican Party has to go the way of the Whigs and a new, newly named, conservative party has to take its place. It´s just a matter of a name and a couple of nationally known leaders to start it.

Given Sandra´s attitude (and looks), I don´t understand why she´s demanding that other people pay for her birth control.

Shouldn´t she be demanding free batteries instead?

Those who look carefully at the election demographics will see that a majority of married women opted for Romney. So it is not the ´female´ vote but that of single, misguided misfits like this Fluke woman whose vote is the issue. If the Republicans dilute their core values to accommodate these miserable malcontents then goodbye GOP.

Ms. Fluke,
Women who engage in sex to such a degree that birth control impacts their budget probably won´t vote for a Republican not matter if he is left of the Democrat candidate, but that is a distinct minority of women. I think a conservative candidate who articulates a cogent agenda to improve the prosperity of everyone in the country including women and their families will do just fine. Admittedly, of late that has not been Republicans, but maybe some conservatives will come to the fore even if they do not wear the Republican label.

Only RINOS and Beltway Establishment Republicans (looking for party invitations and clients) listen to Democrats, Democrat party operatives (like Sandra almost-rhymes-with-never-mind) and RAT infested media whores.

Which is why the national GOP is in the mess it is in today.

Hopefully, the GOP national apparatus will stand firm on their decision not to allow NBC or CNN participate in any Republican primary (or general election) debates due to their fawning "docu-dramas" on dear Hillary!

I agree, but I totally differ with her reasoning!

The Republicans need to make a real/true stand for righteousness, the value of family (man/woman/children)!

We need to return to the values that once made America great - God/Family/Country!

We have suffered from the effects of 9-11 mostly because we denied our inability to safeguard US without God´s intervention.

We used to be a God centered country that valued human life, personally becoming involved in the needs of our neighbors, not expecting government to take over, control every aspect of our lives.

God/family/country need to be valued again, held up as what makes America great!

Satan has been allowed to dethrone Jesus in this country. Much of the blame is laid at the White House. Obama has not lived as he pretended to believe "before" he took control of everything available.

America needs to repent, admit our sinfulness, then open our arms to receive all God has waiting for those who truly believe!

This, I believe, is what is available to all who will humbly/honestly seek first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness, then just see what He can do that we cannot.

Jesus came as our Savior. We need Him to rule/reign, identified as His, then we will triumph over evil here and abroad. Amen

Truer headline would be Republicans can´t win female vote until MSM reports honestly.

I guess Ms. Fluke doesn´t keep up with current events to know who the real abusers of women are. (Hint - the party begins with a "D").

Actually, the polls show that all Republicans need to win the women´s vote is for more of them to get married and have families, so they start caring about more than themselves and don´t need the government to buy them birth control.

Why would this ´female dog´ want to give advice to the Republicans on how to WIN elections?

Rush was right, to put it mildly - she admits she´s easy.

She needs to go to the local bar late, after the men have had a chance to put a few layers of ´beer goggles´ on.

If you listen to her - I don´t - my advice is to do exactly the opposite of what she says. She is NO FRIEND of women or the GOP.

Various definitions of "fluke":

1. A parasitic flatworm that can infect animals and humans. (Oh, this is rich!!)

2. An odd occurrence that happens and is unlikely to be repeated. (At least we hope not!)

3. Any of various flatfishes, especially a flounder of the genus Paralichthys. (Depends on how ugly.)

The Republican Party, in it´s current form, is in danger of losing my wife´s (not male, btw) vote. She has never voted Dem/Commie to my knowledge, but is not enthused with politics and generally votes my (the political junky´s) recommendations, especially local races.

Per #9´s comment - the proverbial ´they´ who conduct various studies, have shown that single women tend Dem, vote Rep once they marry, but revert back to Dem if they divorce.

According to Good Morning America´s Linzie Janis, a CEO who made a donation in opposition to gay marriage is the same as the hateful members of Westboro Baptist. On Friday, Janis reported on Brendan Eich, the former head of the tech company Mozilla. Eich was ousted after liberal groups found out that in 2008 he made a $1000 donation to support Proposition 8 in California. As Janis spoke about the six-year-old donation, video footage of Westboro Baptist protesters with "God hates f***" and "soldiers die 4 *** marriage" signs appeared on-screen. [See video below.

From the Philadelphia Inquirer: One teacher calls it the "new normal" for southwest Philadelphia´s Bartram High School: a massive brawl in the cafeteria, where students punched and stomped each other, and even attacked school police; firecrackers set off in the building; and the student who fractured the skull of a "conflict resolution specialist" is once again roaming the halls, just two weeks after the attack. Insiders told the newspaper, the larger problem at the 1,100-student school "is the continued culture of chaos and disregard for authority."

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

Finally, someone has come up with a way to settle the debate over climate change: Put the people on the wrong side of the argument in cages. A writer for the website Gawker recently penned a self-described “rant” on the pressing need to arrest, charge, and imprison people who “deny” global warming. In fairness, Adam Weinstein doesn’t want mass arrests.

More than a dozen Republican lawmakers are pushing the Environmental Protection Agency to reconsider asserting regulatory authority over streams and wetlands amid intense backlash from farm groups over the agency´s proposed water rule. In a letter Thursday, the GOP senators faulted the EPA for announcing a proposed rule last week before the government´s peer-reviewed scientific assessment was fully complete. They are calling on the government to withdraw the rule or give the public six months to review it, rather than the three months being provided. The senators´ move puts them among several groups -- from farmers and land developers to

US employers add 192,000 jobs;

U.S. employers added jobs at a solid pace in March in the latest sign that the economy is rebounding from a weak stretch brought on by a harsh winter. The Labor Department says employers added 192,000 jobs, slightly below February´s total of 197,000. Employers also added a combined 37,000 more jobs in February and January than previously estimated. The unemployment rate was unchanged at 6.7 percent. But a half-million Americans started looking for work last month, and most of them found jobs. The increase in job-seekers is a sign that they are more optimistic about their prospects. March´s job gain

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Immigration reform advocates are fond of citing broad support for their cause. But in fact the coalition behind the Senate Gang of Eight comprehensive reform bill is fragile and loosely cobbled together. How could Big Labor and the Chamber of Commerce and the tech world and Big Agriculture all unite behind one bill? Very tentatively. It wouldn´t take much to break the coalition apart. And if that happens, the effort to enact comprehensive immigration reform could blow up, not just for the moment, but for some time to come. And there are signs that is exactly what is occurring now.

Check out this THE POLITICO article [emphasis mine]: Hillary Clinton discussed her work at the State Department, called for young women not to take criticisms personally and rapped the media for treating powerful women with a double standard at the kickoff of “Women in the World” in New York City Thursday night. Clinton’s appearance on a panel with International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde, moderated by New York Times columnist Tom Friedman, ran

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

In Dearborn, Mich., home to over 40,000 Americans of Arab descent, some Muslim parents have complained about flyers handed out at public schools advertising an Easter egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The Muslim parents assert that the flyers – emblazoned with the word “Eggstravaganza!” – violate the separation of church and state widely ascribed to the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, reports the Detroit Free Press. Students at three Dearborn elementary schools received the flyers. A large number of Muslim students attend the schools. The “Eggstravaganza!” is scheduled to take place on April 12 event at Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

Wellington -He may be only eight months old. But Prince George made an assured appearance on his debut royal tour this morning. Arriving in New Zealand on the first day of a three-week trip Down Under, the third in line to the throne took the windswept welcome in his stride, although he looked a little chilly in a cream jumper and shorts. Scroll down for video -With a lifetime of royal engagements ahead of him, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are understandably protective of their young son. Indeed, his appearance today was only the second time he has been

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,

Add Bryan Cranston, the star of TV´s recent hit "Breaking Bad" and a new Broadway play about former President Lyndon B. Johnson, to Team Obamacare. In an interview with Yahoo News “global anchor” Katie Couric, the actor called Obamacare the highlight of President Obama´s legacy. “Now’s the time to stake a claim to leave your legacy,” he encouraged Obama. “I personally believe that his health care program is fantastic. Yes, there are problems. Anything worth while is going to go through a growing pains period. But this is his legacy and I think it’s a great one because I don’t

Call it the million-worker mystery. A large chunk of American adults are no longer in the labor force. That has left economists divided over how many of them are voluntarily not working-or even looking for work-because they wanted to retire, go to school or take care of family members, versus how many have been forced out because they couldn´t find a job. (snip) Shierholz estimates that there are currently more than 5 million missing workers who are not included in the unemployment rate because they are neither working nor looking for work, but who might be if the job market
