Democrat War On Women Ends With A Whimper
By Adriana Cohen, Boston Herald November 6, 2014 11:55 am                                                                                                                                                                  The war on women is officially over. The midterm election delivered that message loud and clear.

The progressives’ birth-control darling Sandra Fluke, who kickstarted the phony propaganda scheme back in 2012, was sent packing Tuesday. She ran for state Senate in California’s 26th District and lost dramatically — by 21 points — despite being very well-funded. Proof even lots of money can’t fool the people.

In Texas, Wendy Davis, who made a name for herself last year during an infamous 11-hour-long attempt to filibuster a highly controversial Texas abortion bill, lost her bid for governor. And Mark Udall, a rubber stamp for Obama, who ran his hotly contested Colorado Senate race on “women’s issues,” was trounced by Republican Cory Gardner.

Republicans actually advanced women and gave them positions of power and influence.

Republican Mia Love was elected Utah’s first black congresswoman. In Iowa, the GOP’s Joni Ernst is now the state’s first female senator. The same is so for West Virginia’s Sen.-elect Shelley Moore Capito. And the youngest congresswoman in history, 30-year-old Elise Stefanik of New York, was also victorious.

With the mass wave of Republican electorate victories giving the GOP control of both the Senate and the House as well as winning several key gubernatorial seats — in Blue States no less — Democrats would be smart to scrap the bogus war on women ploy once and for all. Americans are simply not falling for it.

In fact, millions of American women across the country elected Republicans to represent them. If there was a real war on women, clearly this massive demographic would’ve voted differently.

What smart American women know is that the most important thing our government can do for us is to protect our safety and freedom. We need leaders in Washington who will support a strong military, possess an effective foreign policy and elect those who will strengthen homeland security.

Right now.

On the economic front, what Republican women understand is that the path to financial independence and the American Dream are two things: a good education and a good job.

Bottom line: There’s hope for America, because midterm results indicate women across this nation are starting to get it.

The GOP might take the White House in 2016 after all.
