"Moms and GOP - No Longer Happy Together"
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.

The Republican Party has seen the support of people like Jeannette Hopkins evaporate.

A 30-year-old married mother of two and a Republican, Hopkins voted for President Bush in 2004. But she says she probably will support the Democrat in her congressional district this fall "because of the way that everything's been handled" with the GOP in charge of Congress and Bush in the White House.

"We're in a really scary place right now," Hopkins said recently. She vented about what she called the gone-on-too-long Iraq war, a sluggish economy, the bungled Hurricane Katrina response and a continuing terrorism threat.

5. Foley and Rumsfeld are child abusers, albeit in a different manner.
Foley abuses kids in Washington and Rumsfeld in Iraq.

6. I've never understood why other women have gravitated towards the GOP.
They don't care about women or their issues. It is like having an abusive spouse who promises to protect you every time he beats you up.
