Obama Just Won Re-election

Advertisement

And it was the GOP that handed it to him.
Republicans in Congress messed around and messed around and refused to renew the Violence Against Women Act. So Obama waited until they all went on vacation and did it for them.
Their obstructionism finally bit them in their nether parts.

Maybe, just maybe, a couple of reasons the Republicans did not vote on the issue are; 1.) because they thought it redundant to pass a law making an already illegal act illegal, and 2.) maybe they realized what the bill really is...a ploy for The Narcissist in Chief to sucker in the women voters. The sheep are drinking the Kool-Aid.

This is really the only thing worth remembering:

Remember that day? Remember how much our world changed in a few short hours? In a matter of minutes?

And there's how many weeks until Election Day...???

There are plenty of existing laws on the books that punish violence against women. Nobody wants violence period. Take a chill pill people.... You lefties sure dream up some funny stuff. You lefties always have an ax to grind too, go outside and get some air, unless there are too many violent republicans outside just itching to beat up chicks....

Notice how the conservatives on this board aren't calling out the Republican legislators for voting no in this law... instead they're deflecting the conversation to things other than violence against women.

Very telling.

Either they don't care that women should be protected against violence or there is no defense for the conservatives who voted against its passage.

The Liberal desperation is running rampant.

There is nothing that would secure obamas re-election because the word is out on him. Amateur status doesn't get a second go...

Barry, buying one welfare vote at a time. Unfortunate he has a large purchase to make since taking office.

"So Obama waited until they all went on vacation and did it for them". Kind of like Obama gutting the work requirement in welfare reform, Bill Clinton's signature legislation. We Don't Need No Stinking Constitution.

It's also worth noting that despite the recent discovery of what may be the Higgs Boson, organized religion has not collapsed.

Oh, do let us revisit this example of hysterical hubris in a few weeks to see how reality matched up with cait's prediction. There's every possibility major LOLZ will occur. (from a source)

yes all the illegal immigrants if they make it across the border will have protection, insurance, and a nice job but remember who helped this happen at election time ( OBAMA )

They opposed it because it had new language in it that included LGBT folks and it allows temporary visas to undocumented immigrants. It also expanded services to Native American women on reservations and women in rural areas.

I was under the impression that reducing violence against ALL women is a good thing but the Republicans obviously think that only certain groups of women are worthy of protecting.

"Now how's that again?"

Why did they not vote for it? Maybe there was a kennedy amendment that said if you drown a woman, being drunk and rich is an adequate defense. That wouldn't be really great, would it?

You are saying something did not happen and that lack of action supports an assertion, but you are either ignoring or just don't care to say why the action never occurred.

"religious right wingnut and Teapublican"

Eat some ice cream. It will make you feel better. Better yet, try some gelato. There's a shop downtown that sells it. Somebody here knows the name of the place.

I'm sure every religious right wingnut and Teapublican is screaming from here to Timbuktu. Frankly m'dear, I don't give a damn. There's many a woman that can sleep easier in her bed tonight and may end up staying alive because of it.
Now how's that again? There's no "War on Women" in the GOP? Say that a little louder, please.
