GOP’s new punching bag - Stephanie Cutter

http://www.salon.com/2012/10/22/why_does_the_right_hate_stephanie_cutter_so_much/

Top political aides on any presidential campaign are bound to end up in the line of fire on occasion. But no official on either side of the aisle has taken more heat this year from blogs and pundits than Stephanie Cutter, Obama’s deputy campaign director.

According to Google Trends, Cutter has been more searched than top Obama aides David Axelrod or David Plouffe, despite their relative seniority. Among the top searches for her are “married” and “husband,” Axelrod is mostly sought out by people looking for his Twitter handle. And while Axelrod and Plouffe catch plenty of flak from the right, unlike her male colleagues, Cutter’s attacks are often personal and vicious, occasionally with gendered undertones.

According to a Romney aide anonymously quoted by BuzzFeed this summer, Cutter is “some hack political adviser from Chicago who has nothing to point to in her own life.” The comment came during a row over Cutter’s factually accurate claim that Romney could have committed a felony by filing conflicting reports with two government agencies about when he left Bain Capital. Why the aide had to suggest Cutter’s life is pointless to respond to a factual claim is unclear.

Rush Limbaugh, meanwhile, has referred to Cutter with the brash mix of sexism and unrequited lust that only he can administer, alternately referring to her as “Obama’s chief campaign babe” or the “chief spokesbabe for Obama-Biden.” He’s also insulted her intelligence and suggested she’s just a pretty face for the campaign. “Stephanie Cutter is a puppet. The words in her mouth have been put there by Obama,” he said in July. More recently, his opinion of her seems to have soured: “The clueless and blind, lying hack, Stephanie Cutter. I don’t know how smart she is. I really don’t.”

17. Perfect way to describe repub rhetoric.

I was looking for a simple way to describe all of the various rhetoric spewed by republicans and RW extremists and the idea that they always take the low road fits it to a T.

Thank you

2. Strong, intelligent woman, obviously Republicans are going to hate her

I have seen her on TV. She is brilliant and a masterful surrogate. She shuts them down and they have no response. This is why they hate her.

3. One blonde got away

Fox feels it is that network's right to have all the attractive blondes, and that any woman working for the left should have a butch haircut and unshaven legs. Thus, they feel Stephanie Cutter is a traitor to the cause.

6. They demonize

It's one of their well worn tactics. Never worked on Obama, though.

11. This thread needs a pic of our Stephanie..


"..but she’s a pit bull when it comes to the Republicans." Which is why they've made it their mission to demonize her

5. Her jaw isn't made of glass

 

I find here to be extremely impressive. She's a highly intelligent, strong liberal woman who also happens to be incredibly sexy.

What's not to love, unless you are a run of the mill GOP cretin.

13. No war on women/hatred toward women

Nope.

These are all just random, unrelated acts of misogynist fuckery.

Riiiiight.

16. Cutter is a strong woman with a great mind and a penchant for powerful messaging.

Obama is fortunate to have her and I hope the Republicans spend time attacking her. They hate women and it shows every time they relax the tiniest bit. They just can't help themselves. Cutter can not only handle the attacks, she can use them judo-style to take these cretins down one-by-one.

In fact, I found this recent footage of Cutter taking on Rush Limbaugh. Boy, Limbaugh was much thinner at one time.

Different day, same crap.

A strong woman must threaten them or something.
