Mitt Romney- Putting Women on the Roof of His Cars
Mitt Romney’s women problem is joined by the dog problem he has convincing voters he is a rational, pet owner who put his dog on the roof of the car for a 12 hour trip.
The facts are that what Mitt Romney did to his dog was illegal by Massachusetts laws, besides being defined as animal cruelty it endangered the dog’s life. No dog wants to be on the roof of a car traveling at 80 miles per hour for 12 hours!!
The ABC Interview with Diane Sawyer
On an ABC interview with Diane Sawyer last night, Romney added that he would not put another dog on the roof because:
“The attention it’s received”.
It’s Mitt’s Time” says Ann Romney however he’s lost twice already and he has a big gender gap with women and a lack of knowledge of what women and men are going through in this country. The comment was one of a privileged woman who believes she is “entitled” and Michelle Obama would never have made that comment.
Even today, years after the stunningly idiotic pet abuse, the only reason he regrets putting Seamus on the roof is because of the attention his stunt received?
Amazingly, he doesn’t recognize how crazy that sounds and it amplifies his insensitivity towards animals but what does it say about how he feels about women? In the interview, Romney says that President Obama doesn’t understand the economy however far worse is the many examples of how Romney doesn’t understand the economy and his record of running Massachusetts as amongst the lowest job creation state leaves much to be desired.
How Romney is Putting Women on the Roof of His Cars
Would he put women on the roof of the car also, sort of like: out of sight out of mind?
Mitt Romney has already done just that by supporting anti-abortion rights legislation, stating he would gut Planned Parenthood and this last gem:
“Even if you have a child 2 years of age, you need to go to work”. You can bet he didn’t tell his wife that. Notice John McCain grimacing while Romney speaks. This was his speech in Manchester, New Hampshire in January, 2012, the kick off in his campaign for President. Telling mothers to go to work when there are hardly any jobs on the market, is like telling a blind man to see. Romney’s philosophy of do as I say not as I do seems to strike a cord of indifference to the struggles of mothers in today’s world of unemployment. In a staged question this was
“Couple of things, I would like to see us have an unemployment system where people had an unemployment account and if they become unemployed they can take money out. And they can use it for education, job training, they can use it for unemployment benefits and that would give people an incentive to move quickly they possibly could back to the workforce. I also like the idea that people who are receiving assistance, welfare assistance have a responsibility of working. In my state we made good progress in that regard ah..following the days of the welfare reform act but then when I was Governor 85% of the people on a form of welfare assistance in my state had no work requirement. And I wanted to increase the work requirement. I said for instance even if you have a child -two years of age – you need to go to work”.
At this point you can see John McCain is getting uncomfortable while eyeballing Romney’s comments.
“Well people said that’s heartless and I said “No, no …I’m willing to spend more giving daycare to allow those parents to go back to work”.
The Reality of Women, Welfare, Food Stamps and The Unemployed
With 47 million people on food stamps, the unemployed and the poor, the poverty has hit record levels in 2012, Romney has guts talking to Americans this way.
When unemployment rises, food stamps usage rises and amongst those who are on federal aid, they are comprised mostly of women and children.
The program was designed to provide resources to all those who are elderly, single parent households who are going hungry, kids without food and women without jobs.
Mitt Romney has no idea what Americans are going through and throwing women under the bus or as in his case -on the roof of his car is a disgrace to Americans and a degrading example of how he would govern women as a President.
Republicans this week are attempting to cut food stamps of which 50% goes to children and these are the poorest people on the planet.
The poverty line is $23,000 a year and many are going hungry in this stagnant economy and Romney’s answer is:
You gotta go to work!
