If anybody hates women, it’s not the Republicans

How do Republicans reproduce? Considering they hate women and women hate them. Osmosis, I  guess. Just who hates women?

Who hates Sarah Palin, Condoleezza Rice, Kristi Noem, Michelle Bachmann, Jan Brewer, Susana Martinez, Mary Falin, Nicki Haley? The last four are Republican governors.

Who hates these women? They all get negative media coverage or none at all. Just like Ann Romney.

Three of the major networks, ABC, CBS, and NBC, will not broadcast Ann Romney’s address to the Republican National Convention Monday night, The New York Times reports.

Why? Why ruin the narrative that Republicans hate women. Teresa Heinz-Kerry was worshiped by the media. She is worth an estimated $1 billion, 4 1/2 Times as much Mitt Romney!

Her money is in a plethora of tax-wise trusts! But no problem. Teresa was just great! She was covered like make-up. There was no concern with her massive wealth.

Let me make this clear: She is not Mother Theresa of Calcutta, who lived in poverty. No, this was Teresa Heinz Kerry, wife of Democrat presidential candidate.  

Heinz has employees in 200 countries. More employees outside the United States than in this country. How is that for outsourcing!

John Kerry was never vilified for his immense wealth, including the ownership of an entire island, estimated at $35 million.  

Instead of covering Ann Romney, the networks will all be showing crime dramas. CBS will run “Hawaii Five-O,” ABC “Castle,” and NBC “Grimm.” The networks have informed the Romney campaign they will broadcast just an hour of convention coverage on the final three nights.

Ann Romney is a heroic figure, a mother of five children, who has candidly spoken about her battle with multiple sclerosis and surviving breast cancer, and a miscarriage.

Why don’t we want to hear from Ann Romney? What may she wish to plant in the garden of the Oval Office.

Has the media told you about how the Republican Party and Republican women were the primary force behind the women’s suffrage movement and the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Have they told you about the National Federation of Republican Women, founded in 1938, a national grassroots political organization with thousands of active members in local clubs across the nation and in several U.S. territories, making it one of the largest and most influential women’s political organizations in the country.

They are all active intelligent women who care about our children and grandchildren.

  • Life-saving law Life-saving law

    Not many pieces of legislation to come out of Annapolis can be described as a matter of life or death. But the CPR law signed by Gov. Martin O’Malley is just that.
    Known as Brenna’s Law, the legislation requires that all Maryland high schoolers will be required to complete CPR training as part of the graduation requirement.

  • President and Obamacare: Who needs Congress?

    Being a fellow from a small town like Cumberland I don’t always really understand what’s going on in Washington. But I have watched a few houses being built over the years. I even helped some with one house, but my brother fired me from that work pretty quickly, mainly because it was his house being built.

  • It’s a secret It’s a secret

    Could someone enlighten us about why not even the names of the two entities bidding on development of the Footer Dye Works building can be divulged?
    A Times-News article about the bids included an explanation from a lawyer for the attorney general’s office about the need to keep the names and other information secret at this time. Despite that, the logic of not divulging at least a little more information escapes us.
