Dear John Boehner:

How can you, John Boehner, beat the podium, screaming that the War on Women is fiction, when YOUR party, the Republican party, overwhelmingly voted AGAINST The Lilly Ledbetter Act, The Violence Against Women Act & now filibustered Equal Pay for Women. Plus, almost shutting down Government over the de-funding of Planned Parenthood. And the reason to vote AGAINST the Violence Against Women Act was that the 2012 version included protection of gay, illegal & Native American women. Also over 1,100 bills proposed by Republicans across this country restricting a woman’s right to choose her own health care & reproductive rights. Plus bills actually signed into law letting employers decide whether or not a woman’s need for contraception fits THEIR moral standards. The Blunt/Rubio Amendment was the single most disgusting piece of legislature THAT DAY. Passing laws allowing doctors to LIE to their patients if it will prevent an abortion. Wanting to make being a single mother a crime/child abuse. Forcing a woman to get an UNNECESSARY vaginal ultrasound when seeking an abortion AND making HER pay for it, including rape & incest victims.

No War on Women? Speaker Boehner?

Well please re read everything I listed. I didn’t make this up, YOUR party enacted these policies that are beyond anti-women. How can the War on Women be fake when all of these things actually happened? I think you’re the single worst Speaker of the House this country has ever seen and what does THAT say when this country had Newt Gingrich as its Speaker. You have NO idea how to wrangle in your Tea Party Congressmen, you give those press conferences with a smug look on your orange face WHILE lying the whole time. And anyone with a logical thought process knows that the War on Women, wrapped around the very fake “War on Religious Freedom” is the biggest bunch of bologna coming out of the Republican party in 2012. Maybe, just maybe that “argument” could have some merit to it IF “religious freedom” means ALL religions. So until the GOP starts to fight for ALL religious freedom, sit down & shut up because any American with common sense KNOWS it’s bullshit.

 It’s amazing that you have the audacity to say it’s The President’s fault for not passing a jobs bill, when YOU won’t even give 10% of anything, & you blame The President? Holding unemployment benefits hostage just to make sure the disastrous Bush tax cuts were extended, and you still say The President won’t compromise? Allowing the debt ceiling to expire, which has NEVER happened before. YOUR party did that. Not the President. YOUR party. Yet you say the President refuses to compromise? Which is code for “He MUST give us EVERYTHING because if President Obama doesn’t, he hates America.” Right? I mean that sounds about right.

All you are trying to do is convince the most ignorant of Americans that the GOP is all about jobs jobs jobs when in fact, you guys are about anything BUT jobs. Jobs is code for “abortion.” Having a frivolous & pathetic vote about making sure “In God We Trust” stays on the bill is way more important than finding a way to create jobs. You & your party are liars, hypocrites & in the last year & a half, proven to hate anyone who doesn’t have a white penis. Am I wrong? NO. Why? Because EVERYTHING I’ve listed & pointed out is the truth & a lot of them are policies. YOUR party’s policies. And look at that, not one policy that includes the creation of one freakin’ job. Unless you think all the jobs are in a woman’s vagina.

Once, just once, I’d like to see you tell the truth from that podium during your press conferences. Is that really too much to ask? Maybe so, since you are really bad at your job. And thanks Rachel Maddow for pointing THAT out so brilliantly.

So go ahead and keep thinking you’re fooling the country. Keep having conferences about jobs and blame the President about no jobs and keep screaming that it’s the President who is not compromising … WHILE your party is voting on a bill about selective gender abortions. Another FAKE “issue.” … Just keep on doing THAT, Speaker.

Journalists and Reporters Interviewing Romney & Santorum

Just for the record, this isn’t for anyone working at Fox News, for the simple fact that you have your own agenda and will never ask the GOP candidates any questions that actually matter. Now that that’s out-of-the-way ….

It’s kind of shameful to watch reporters/journalists interview the GOP candidates because it seems the ‘follow-up’ question is obsolete. Especially those talking with Mitt Romney. I don’t get it, is it because you’re scared? Is it because you don’t like confrontation? Are you just not informed enough about Mitt Romney and his constant flip-flopping? Someone help me out here because I am watching and SCREAMING at the TV which questions to ask, and which questions to follow up with. And I’m disappointed every time.

Now I get that Romney is pulling a ‘Palin’ right now, he’s really not available. And for the most part he’s going on Conservative radio/talk shows for an easy interview. But this also applies to the debate moderators. I mean seriously, the very first question to Mitt Romney at the next debate should be, “Are you aware you’ve flip-flopped on every single issue you’ve been asked about?” And not just the ‘I’ve changed my mind years later’ kind of flip-flopping, I’m talking that this dude flip-flops in the same interview in the same sentence. This should be the question posed to him every interview he does. And would someone please ask him this, “You’ve said that ‘slut’ and ‘prostitute’ weren’t the words you would have used, so please tell us what words you would use.” Why isn’t that asked to him? Nobody’s asked Mitt Romney THAT question yet? Really?

Also his stance on abortion. Here is Mitt Romney in 2002 in a debate when running for Governor of MA. Seems pretty convincing about his stance on abortion. If you actually watch the video, it looks like Mitt Romney was a career flip-flopper. But, someone needs to remind him of this and how he spoke so admirably of his mother. By the way, this is definitely a video the Obama campaign should start circulating. At the end of the video, Romney says over and over, “My position is very clear.” So the next reporter who talks to Romney, ask him what changed. This video shows Mitt Romney beautifully flip-flopping on abortion. And Climate Change. And this video is 4 minutes of Mitt Romney flip-flopping. I could watch these all day.

Now onto Rick Santorum. It seems like he does get asked the questions I would ask. One being, ‘would you make your daughter give birth to her rapist’s baby?’ His answer is ‘yes.’ It’s a no brainer for him. Which kind of makes me sick. What a household that must have been. To be a female in the Santorum household. They love zygotes more than their living, breathing daughters. If some misogynist in Wisconsin, Senator Glenn Grothman wants it to be ‘child abuse’ if you’re a single mother, I want it to be child abuse when you FORCE your daughter to carry her rapist’s baby to term. And Santorum should NOT get credit for ‘being consistent’, Absolutely not. Not when he hates all things non-white male. This guy thinks he’s a martyr, the Pope in a sweater vest. The fact that he’s proud of his views against contraception. “The dangers of contraception” as he puts it. The GOP discourse right now is extremely anti-women. And Santorum is their leader. Remember, he’s the guy who brought a dead fetus home so his other children could mourn it. He did that. And people support this guy?

I find it frustrating that reporters seem a little afraid to ask these candidates any serious questions. My theory is they are afraid Romney or Santorum will never want to be interviewed again by that person. But for the love of God, if reporters ‘back off’ during the general, I’m going to be really, really, pissed. The only reason why I kind of want Mitt Romney to get the nomination is because he’ll HAVE to answer for his flip-flopping. So here is just some advice to non Fox News reporters that will interview him.

DO YOUR HOMEWORK: Memorize everything Mitt Romney flip-flopped on, which IS everything. Bring video if you have to. Make him watch his own flip-flop videos on YouTube. (That would be freakin’ awesome) And most importantly, get a backbone. Too many reporters ask a question, the candidate lies through his teeth, and the reporter moves on. That happen ALL the time. And that’s why I think that these reporters are just not informed enough going into the interview. Am I right? Wrong?

This kind of reporting and interviewing is going to be so important in the general election. If Mitt Romney never has to answer to his constant flip-flopping, journalism is dead to me.
