Moms and GOP - no longer happy together


By LIZ SIDOTI
Associated Press Writer

NEW ALBANY, Ind. (AP) -- After winning over moms in back-to-back elections, Republicans have lost their advantage among married women with children this year.

...

An Associated Press-Ipsos poll this month found that support is now evenly divided between Democrats and Republicans among married women with children in the house. Republicans won this voting group by 18 percentage points in 2002 and Bush won it by 14 percentage points in 2004.

2. "What Did She EVER See In Him?"
That's what you'll hear in the wake of a messy divorce--it was common knowledge that the two had nothing in common, but Love (or Fear) is Blind.

Now it's time to mop up, strip the bastards of their assets, and heal the broken families.

16. That's Funny!
Remember all thos people who bought that drug to cure Anthrax. What was up with that? I think that guy Cheney was somehow involved with that. I don't know how, but I just have this feeling.

27. Rumsfeld holds major stock in the company that makes Cipro...
the drug that fights Anthrax.

He raked in all sorts of bank with THAT attack. Just like he did when Saddam used the chemicals Rummy sold him just before "Saddam gassed his own people".

Death is BIG business. And it's NOT very funny.

4. Foleygate, the coverup, hasn't passed the the common sense rule with moms

or dads. I, too, think this is the critical factor for November.

10. How could ANY mother...
...or any parent have any respect or give support to some political asshole like Bush who sees deceased US service persons lost in Iraq as "commas?" If Bush could do it to those children ~~ what in the hell will stop Bush and his ilk from doing that in the future to other children?

A Soccer Mom or Dad Looking at their small child today safe at home with their faimly ~~ that does not mean that some of these parents have not realized what a future with war-mongers like Bush could mean to that small person they cherish. NO PARENT wants his child to become a teen or young adult and go to war for LIES. Especially when the enemy which was being targeted ~~ terrorists ~~ have become a bigger problem due to the actions of someone who they thought was gonna keep them and their precious children safe.

Now add to that that the Repuke party who they thought would keep them and their children safe HAS BEEN PROTECTING A PEDEOPHILE???

Little wonder the soccer Moms are no longer cheerleaders for Chimpy and his pals.

24. Ever consider ...............
......maybe some of these moms are scared shitless about getting the crap beat out of them from their NASCAR lovin' hubbies. Ever hear the phrase "co-dependant"? "Look bitch, you vote republican or I gonna kill you, and maybe the kids also". Wonder how many of these asshole rethuglican husbands like little boys, or sexually abuse their daughters. Betcha lots. And momma can't do a damn thing about it.

11. This married woman with children was NEVER happy with this GOP
I have never understood those who were. There doesn't seem to be any way they've kept my children safer by any stretch of the imagination, they've done the exact opposite. So now the 'security moms' are just beginning to figure this out because of the Foley scandal. Mind boggling. Just how did they think the war in Iraq under false pretenses, torture, killing and maiming of innocents, turning our ports over to the United Arab Emirates, losing ground in Afghanisatan, spying on Americans, and not catching Osama Bin Laden protected their children?

WTF

13. My brother and sister in law fit this mold
Edited on Sun Oct-08-06 04:28 PM by catmandu57
they have children 10, 5, and new hatched who despite everything I said to them voted for this mistake*, the only thing I could think of is they haven't any concept of tomorrow, what will happen, five, ten, twenty years from now.
What this idiot* has started is going to go on a very long time, and will follow us out of the ME, will follow us even when this bastard is gone.
Thanks a lot mom.

edit: fat fingers

So true. This sums up the Bush base rather well.

23. Even my hard-core Republican cousin
(whom I love dearly, but do NOT discuss politics with anymore!) no longer supports Chairman Bu$ch and the Forever War of the Oligarchy Party - and why? Because her grandson, my cousin Jon, is coming back in a couple weeks from his second tour in Iraq, and will be redeployed, probably before Thanksgiving, to Afghanistan. Even she is finally outraged.
