The GOP and the Vagina

The presidential election of 2012 has the pundits scratching their heads. The second guessing will go on for the next four years as all of the Republicans who guaranteed a solid victory for their candidate, Governor Mitt Romney, looked at numbers that proved otherwise. What went wrong?

With unemployment numbers still high and a chronic feeling of discontent in the country, the election was a major coup for the incumbent Democrat. President Obama’s staff correctly played the geography and demographics and an amazing GOTV strategy. They maximized their ability to garner a super majority of votes in the major metropolitan urban areas and just enough votes beyond that.

The analysts stated that a phenomenon of contradiction existed in this election. The exit polls indicated that the voters were deeply concerned about the direction of the country, but stayed the course. The exit polls also revealed that many of the voters thought that Mitt Romney would be better for the economy, but the voters stayed the course. So, was this election nothing more than a very expensive popularity contest?

Obama’s re-election was especially beneficial for many groups. Black voters, gays and lesbians, abortion activists, Muslims, unions, welfare recipients, feminists and illegal immigrants came out winners.

During a phone call with a good female friend just after the election, I was told, “The GOP needs to learn how to stay away from a woman’s vagina. We want to do what we want with our bodies in 2012. We’ll decide if we want to have an abortion or not.”

But what about morals? What about what is stated in the Bible?

“We’ll decide what is best for us. We don’t need some conservative politician telling us what to do and making decisions for us.”

Hmmmm. Thanks for being blunt. In a close election maybe the moral majority isn’t as strong as once believed. A few more female votes certainly could not have hurt the Republican cause in 2012. It might be time for that party to alter its stance to accommodate the modern woman.

Lots to think about here. Do you think it is time for a another party to emerge that has more modern values yet it isn't leaning so much in either direction?

Yes, which was sort of what the Tea Party was going after. I read an interesting article about the makers and the takers (have and have-nots.) We've reached that point which will spell the downfall of capitalism AND our democracy.

We have a lot to concern ourselves with as we move forward as a nation. Many of our freedoms will be compromised as others (the government) will own us.

Many voters didn't think things through on the '12 election. The far right has to come back to the middle to get new voters. But the far left will ruin our democracy.
