I, for one, welcome the meme-ization of this "logic"

"92.3 percent of all the jobs lost during the Obama years have been lost by women."

[wtfamireading?]

"amazing statistic"

Ha! R-money spelled "statistical" wrong.

Oh, I think I'mma gonna like the farkette responses on this thread.

Women were more heavily represented in jobs that suffered in the recession's later months and beyond, as revenue-strapped state and local governments laid off teachers and cut other public-sector workers.

This is kind of hysterical.

"Yes, I support mandatory wand rape for women considering abortion, but the president is kind of sort of maybe responsible for you losing your job, ladies. Also, never mind all that shiat about job creators, it's all on President Fart."

No moran, 47% of people make up their own stats to support their argument.

That's 100% true

Oh and if you do get a job, we totally support allowing your employer to make decisions about how use your insurance benefits, you slut.

FTA: Romney's claim is based on statistics showing the number of unemployed women grew by 858,000 since January 2009, Obama's inauguration month. But it ignores the disproportionate hit on men the year before Obama became president - and their greater job losses overall.

Some 3.4 million men and 1.8 million women have lost jobs since the recession started, according to the government.


And if you look only at devout Christians fired during Obama's administration, 100% of them are devout Christians! This is a war on Christianity!

I like that, that tickles me.

Let's blame the president for stuff we wouldn't pass and blocked out of spite.

Ladies, the GOP promises to not gain full control over your vaginas and uteruses.
 
2012-04-12 09:46:48 AM  
I don't think the kind of women who will be fooled by this type of "logic" are the type of women who are likely to vote based on how good a candidate's record is on "women's issues."

I mean, I just don't see much of a Venn overlap there.

Sybarite: This is their plan to win back the female vote?


Of course, it was stupidity for them to lose it by trying to out-derp each other in the primaries. We're watching Romney's transformation from attempting to appeal to the GOP faithful to attempting to appeal to sane people. I still think he's got a long way to go.

Oh, and let's fire a lot of people from the female-majority government sector (including teachers) too, while we're at it. Then we can also blame the president for crappy test scores.
 
2012-04-12 09:49:56 AM  
It would have been nice if TFA at least provided the method by which the Romney campaign arrived at the 92.3% figure... convoluted and intellectually dishonest as it might be. Even taking a starting point of January 2009 into consideration, I still find that figure wholly unbelievable.
 
2012-04-12 09:50:07 AM  
The guy that passed Lilly Ledbetter hates you. The guys who called you sluts for daring to talk publicly about hormonal birth control and who are trying to shut down women's health clinics as fast as possible really love you. Too bad your inferior chick minds don't get that.

True, but what else do you have to offer women without losing the support of the Republican base? Obama hates women because the recession that started under Bush and was caused by foolish fiscal policy and Wall St. criiminals caused many of them to lose their jobs. It's kinda poetic in its stupidity... I guess Romney hasn't gotten the hang of talking to thinking individuals yet, he's probably still in GOP primary mode.
 
2012-04-12 09:51:11 AM  
If you don't have a job and you're not rich, blame yourself. Don't blame the President. Why do these Republicans hate the idea of personal responsibility so much?

Eh, I don't think so, it may sink in better than most people expect. It would be like Romney lying about how to drive or how to throw a baseball; there's a level of expertise required before you can smell the bullshiat.

Then, let's have the de facto head of the party mischaracterize a young college girl's argument before congress and call her all sorts of vile names for 3 days in a row.

Actually, I would have thought the right wingers would applaud women losing their jobs. They get to be back in the home where they belong and get with the sammich and babby making, amirite?

Oh, I'm not saying he's got much choice in arguments now that he's painted himself into this corner.

I just don't see it working on the intended/not-already-converted audience.
 
2012-04-12 09:54:46 AM  
So basically the GOP position is that when employment goes up, government doesn't create jobs; but when employment doesn't go up, it's the President's fault for not creating jobs?

Oh yeah? Well, all of the American citizens fired during Obama's administration were American citizens. Why is Obama declaring war on America?

Hmm, so to believe Romney's stat, you have to believe that only 740k total jobs have been lost under Obama. Somehow I think that latter bit won't be brought up too much.

Sybarite: This is their plan to win back the female vote?


By voting against equal pay act, by passing legislation limiting a woman's ability to make her own health related decisions and then tell them we are doing this to enable your economic prosperity and to keep govt out of your health care.

//Anyone see a problem here?
 
2012-04-12 10:00:33 AM  
Their plan to win the women's votes is to remind the men that they all lost their jobs while a Republican was still in the oval office. Good luck with that, brain geniuses.
 
2012-04-12 10:00:33 AM  
Why should the GOP care? I thought their platform was all women should locked inside their homes, hobbling around with aspirin clenched between their knees, and refusing to vote because it's "unwomanly."
 
2012-04-12 10:01:05 AM  
Hahahaha jesus fark:

ALSO WORTH NOTING: It's important for Romney to start on January 1, even though Obama wasn't inaugurated until January 20. Why? Because if you started on February 1, you'd end up with women accounting for something like 300% of all job losses, and that's ridiculous enough that it would give the whole game away. Even the rubes wouldn't buy that.
