Good grief, these idiots are continuing with the absurd “war on women” meme that has already imploded this past week. But I suppose when you have no record to defend it’s just going to be attack the messenger and pray the voters don’t notice.
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner ripped presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney on Sunday, calling Romney’s argument that women have been disproportionately hurt during the recession “a ridiculous argument.”
“It’s a ridiculous argument. Ridiculous. It’s been largely debunked this week by the people who have looked at it,” Geithner told George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s This Week. “It’s a ridiculous way to look at the problem. And this is a political moment and you’re going to be seeing — just to borrow a line from Mario Cuomo — ‘you’re going to see a lot of politicians choose to campaign in fiction, but we have to govern in fact.’”
Speaking at a town hall in Wilmington, Del. last week, Romney worked to flip the script on Democrats, who say Republicans have been waging a “war on women.”
“There’s been some talk about a war on women,” Romney said. “The real war on women has been waged by the Obama administration’s failure on the economy.”
“Do you know what percent of job losses in the Obama years have been casualties of women losing jobs as opposed to men?,” Romney said. “92.3 percent of the job losses during the Obama years have been women who lost those jobs. The real war on women has been the job losses as a result of the Obama economy.”
Now here’s where it gets amusing. Romney was right, but Team Obama and the media still manage to spin the truth as somehow being fiction.
While the numbers are accurate, the Obama campaign and some fact checking organizations have pushed back, calling Romney’s statement misleading.
While the numbers are accurate. OK, so the numbers are accurate. That should be the end of the story. The numbers are accurate. Keep repeating that while these boobs try and spin it.
Ironic how Team Obama trots out a tax cheat on April 15, isn’t it?
