Women care about issues other than reproductive rights, Emily’s List President says

In an attempt to capitalize on President Obama’s recent electoral victory, Emily’s List President Stephanie Schriock held a press conference Monday to announce a stunning revelation: Women care about other issues besides reproductive rights.

Yes, it seems that the party that wanted women to vote with their lady parts has come to the realization that the way to win over women is by appealing to their lady smarts. 

During the press conference, held Monday morning at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.. the president of the progressive women’s group claimed that the reason the Republican Party lost so much of the women’s vote in the last presidential election was because of its “Mad Men agenda” that is driving away independent women voters.

Although the organization’s mission is to elect “pro-choice Democratic women to office,” which Schriock said it was “solely” committed to, she barely talked about the issue of life, mentioning it only briefly as part of an attack on what the Left sees as the GOP’s attempts to takeaway or limit women’s access to contraception.

Instead, the leader of the pro-choice organization bragged that the group helped the Democratic Party win the last election by expanding the issues it focused on. Specifically, Schriock noted that women were predominately worried about the economy during the last election.

On two ocassions Schricok brought up Voter ID laws, saying that the unfair laws are an issue that women should be concerned about because they hurt seniors, some of which are WOMEN.

She also slammed GOP Speaker of the House John Boehner for his “outrageous” refusal to bring the Sandy aid relief package (which is apparently a women’s issue now because a lot of women were affected by it) and the Violence Against Women Act to a vote before the end of the 113th Congress.

Notably, Schriock bizarrely claimed that the fiscal cliff would have been solved faster if a woman had been involved in the discussions, despite the fact that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was heavily involved in the negotiations occurring between President and House and Senate leadership.

“And women just want to get these things done and keep moving forward, but these Republican men – and John Boehner in particular – tend to want to stand around and pound their chests rather than getting things done and solving our nation’s problems,” Schriock said. “And I think its time to get the Speaker’s gavel out of his hands and back in the hands of a woman.” (No word yet on whether Emily’s List would also like to go back in time and get the presidency out of the hands of Obama and into the hands of Hilary Clinton or into the hands of John McCain and Sarah Palin so that a woman would have really been involved in the discussions).

You could say Republicans didn’t do a good job speaking to women, who made up 53 percent of the electorate, in the last election, given that President Barack Obama won that demographic by 11 points. But you could also say that Democrats did a bad job of speaking to men, considering that Mitt Romney won men by 8 points. One thing is clear though: Democrat’s attempts to paint the GOP as having a War on Women’s reproductive rights did not work. And as a result, liberal groups like Emily’s List are scrambling to find a new excuse to broadly paint the GOP as “the bad guy” in order to further their own agendas.

    Gun solution.
    Article 1. Each gun, by law, should have a programmable smart chip imbedded in it.
    Article 2. When sold, the vendor should load the data of the purchaser onto the chip.
    Article 3. An affordable gun detector must be manufactured for use by banks, schools, malls, theaters, or any businesses, government facilities, or private citizens.
    Article 4. They must be capable of detecting any gun within a mile or more.
    Article 5. They must be capable of detecting and reading the ID chip of the gun, silently and automatically.
    Article 6. They must be able to alert the owner of the detector, security personal, or anyone the owner wants notified, automatically and silently.
    Article 7. Insurance Companies must provide liability insurance for gun owners for each gun they own. It can be remotely installed on the chip and, if premium isn’t paid, it can be removed.
    Article 8. Penalties for not having an ID chip or liability insurance could be confiscation until compliance with the law.
    Article 9. A fine could also be levied for non-compliance.
    Comment 1. The right to own a gun is not to be infringed upon.
    Comment 2. If no gun detectors exist as prescribed in articles 3, 4, 5, or 6, the government could award a monetary prize to the first person or company to invent one.
    Comment 3. Gun detectors in the hands of 150,000,000 citizens which are capable of notifying authorities, silently, and automatically, of a gun that doesen’t have an ID chip or insurance, would be the best defence against gun violence.
