Debbie Wasserman Shultz calls GOP “anti-women” and “war on women”

The war on women that the Republicans have been waging since they took over the House, I think is going to not only restore but possibly helps us exceed the president’s margin of victory in the next election” Rep. Debbie Wasserman Shultz


The New Civility at work – lest Wasserman Shultz forgot (maybe she “Sees nothing, knows nothing, and hears nothing“) the Republican Party had a female Vice President on the ticket in 2008.

That sure sounds anti-women to me.

Racist Democrat Jim Clyburn plays the race card

[T]he president’s problems are in large measure because of the color of his skin.  – Jim Clyburn, May, 25, 2011

Rep. Clyburn needs to understand that just because he is a racist and judges people based on the color of their skin, it doesn’t mean that most people do.  In fact most people don’t care about your skin color.  Get over it, the “racism” card could have played 40 or 50 years ago, but not any more.  Let’s look at his comment:

1. President Obama is elected, and then the racism starts?  Give it up, that is crazy.

2. According to the President, he is half-white, and felt like he was coming home to Ireland.  But so what.  President Obama’s skin color does not matter.  Or is Rep Clyburn embracing the “one drop” theory from two centuries ago?  One would hope he was more knowledgable and intelligent than that.

Most of President Obama’s critics base their criticism on policy.  There are few who are old-fashioned dinosaurs like Rep. Clyburn who believe that the color of someone’s skin is at all relevant, but most people realized how stupid that was decades ago.

Skin color is irrelevant just as eye color and hair color are.  The racist is the one hiding behind skin color to avoid legitimate criticism.

Is this “The New Civility” at work again?  When you can’t counter an argument you rely on scaring people and playing the race card.

It is great to note though that not a single member of the democrat controlled Senate voted for the Obama Budget proposal this year.  Are Obama’s troubles in the Senate due to the “color of his skin”?

Sign “Keep your Boehner out of my Vagina!”- Stop forcing us to fund your vagina

After seeing women carrying signs saying “Keep your Boehner out of my Vagina!” it has been a bang up day for “the new civility.”  To the women who have the sign, two things:  
(1) Keep your vagina out of my wallet, and
(2) we don’t want to be involved with your vagina, which is the point – stop forcing us to fund your vagina.

We don’t want the government in the bedroom, the wallet, or any part of you or anyone else.

Once you invite the government in, it becomes a political issue.  The answer is, don’t invite the government in in the first place.

Republicans want to shut down the government because they think there’s nothing more important than keeping women from getting cancer screenings. Harry Reid, The New Civility

“Republicans want to shut down the government because they think there’s nothing more important than keeping women from getting cancer screenings. This is indefensible and everyone should be outraged,” Harry Reid said on the Senate floor, April 8, 2011


Senator Reid is again demonstrating President Obama’s “New Civility” which was instituted in January 2011.

Senator Reid, Republicans want FREEDOM to CHOOSE where to get their cancer screenings and not be reliant upon Washington, DC for cancer screenings.   The people of the United States do not need to be ruled and controlled from Washington.  We are quite capable of getting along with our lives without power-hungry politicians attempting to control us.  We do not want to force our neighbors to pay for our health care while you control the money and thereby control us.

Does a statement like that represent “The New Civility” that we were told in January was required going forward?  Or was that only for political purposes at the time?

We do not want women to have to wait months for screenings and surgery when needed like the BBC reported was occurring in their state-controlled system.
