The Obama campaign's war on...the truth

By Laura Ingraham



http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Over the weekend, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton waded into the culture wars over the weekend at the Women in the World Summit as part of the coordinate effort to reelect Barack Obama. Clinton said "Why extremists always focus on women remains a mystery to me. But they all seem to. It doesn't matter what country they're in or what religion they claim. They want to control women. They want to control how we dress, they want to control how we act, they even want to control the decisions we make about our own health and bodies."


Yes, Mrs. Clinton is not-so-subtly comparing the GOP to the Taliban. This is a new low. It is glaringly apparent that Team Obama is hell-bent on ignoring the primary issue facing our country-jobs. Instead the President and his surrogates have decided that scaring women, especially single women, is the key to victory in November.


Democrats know that today women face no restrictions getting contraception.


They know that republicans aren't going to stop women from getting contraception.


They know that most healthcare plans already cover contraception, most with minimal co-pays.


If you are a woman working for Georgetown University Hospital and you want to have multiple sexual partners every week, no one is going to stop you from buying whatever contraception you want to use. Community clinics and places like Planned Parenthood will cover virtually all costs.


This is a totally phony issue being pushed by leftists who have no strategy other than to go negative and divide Americans along racial, ethnic, and gender lines. Obama's boosters are misrepresenting what's going on and deceiving the American people just so he can retain power. This is cynical and dishonest.


And the Washington Post/ABC Poll today shows that this isn't working. A record percentage of Americans (50%) give Pres. Obama "intensely low marks" on the economy-a 9 percent increase from last month. Almost two-thirds say they disapprove of the way the president is handling the issue of gas prices. On his handling of the deficit Obama hit an all-time low, registering a 32 percent approval rating among adults nationwide. 70 percent of independents disapprove of the president's handing of the deficit. Obama, once up over Romney and Santorum, is now in a dead heat with both of them.


So much for the GOP primary hurting Republicans. So much for the spin that the economy is in a rebound. So much for the idea that Obama is sailing to reelection. Of course the Democrats want to change the subject to a wholly contrived "war on women" narrative--that is as fanciful as the notion that Mr. Obama's economic policies are working. If there IS a war on women-it's on women's pocketbooks, and its being waged by President Obama.
