The Faux "War On Women" Thing Sure Did Fail Big...


Given a choice between being distracted by a non existent "war on women" and focusing on the economy, the administration's war on religion and free speech, fuel prices, ObamaCare, and Afghanistan,  Americans chose reality.

As I said weeks ago: The Left is  Out of Step With Our Depression Era Nation:

The contraceptive mandate on the left is oddly a discussion about women with jobs, not women without jobs.

Does the left really want to make the debate about "free" contraceptives for the employed, those most likely to be able to afford it?

That side of the debate should at the very least be about women and men without jobs, the very women and men who are less able to afford contraceptives and for whatever reason are unwilling to take advantage of free contraceptives at Planned Parenthood. Bizarrely it is not.

I mean, really, "free" contraceptives for women and men but only if you have or can get a job in an economy that provides no jobs or even worse, continuously fewer jobs relative to the total population?

One might think the left is disingenuously playing politics.

Now the polls are in and they confirm that America didn't buy Obama's distraction...

Dana Loesch:

The newest Washington Post/ABC poll shows that the majority of Americans strongly disapprove of the way in which the President is handling a number of issues, chief among them the economy and gas prices. According to the March 10th, 2012 poll released yesterday a net 50% of those surveyed disapprove of how Obama is handling the job of president with 39% "strongly disapproving" and only 28% "strongly approving." This is up from the net 46% taken on February 4th of the same year.

On the economy, 50% "strongly disapprove" whereas only 20% "strongly approve" of the President's management. His negatives greatly outweigh his positives on everything from his handling of Iran, the budget deficit, Afghanistan, and on "the situation with gas prices" where 52% "strongly disapprove" of his job performance. It represents an increasing trend.

The latest New York Times/ CBS News poll:

At a time of rising gas prices, heightened talk of war with Iran and setbacks in Afghanistan, Mr. Obama’s approval rating dropped substantially in recent weeks, the poll found, with 41 percent of respondents expressing approval of the job he is doing and 47 percent saying they disapprove — a dangerous position for any incumbent seeking re-election.
