FL Attorney General Pam Bondi disputes notion that GOP is not pro-women ('But we ALL bundle!')
Michael Van Sickler at the Tampa Bay Times reports:

August 28, 2012

PALM HARBOR Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi didn't mention Todd Akin's comments from last week about "legitimate rape."

But in a speech before the Florida delegation on Tuesday, Bondi said any talk from Democrats about how the Republicans aren't supportive of women is nonsense, and she asked conservative women to put a stop to it.

"When people say our party isn't pro-women, it's just ridiculous," Bondi said. "Under President Barack Obama, 401,000 women have lost their jobs. It's about jobs. We have to keep going out and spread the word."

Bondi said she had been on TV 10 times this week saying as much, and asked women in the audience to counter the Democrats.

"I'm sick and tired of hearing that Mitt Romney isn't pro-women," Bondi said.


"I've got to go work on my speech a little bit," she told the delegates.

Look in the mirror, Ms. Bondi.

This woman is a disgrace to women and the state of Florida.

1. Yes, because no woman, with or without a job, cares about contraception or her right to control her
own body or her ability to exercise a constitutional right without having a wand shoved into her most personal parts, and so on.

Thing is, why the hell are those considered only women's issues? Do 16 year old boys really want to pay child support for 22 years? Do men really want their wives to die from complications of a pregnancy?

This country is so messed up!

Then again we're not Saudi Arabia.
