War on women?!? It's actually a war on men..according to Fox...<quoted text>
You are wrong. America is a right of center country. Media reporting from the exact center would appear to be to the left, but they are not, they are still in the center.
The Republican started losing this election almost 4 years ago when they decided to obstruct almost anything the President wanted to do. This was true even when he compromised and incorporated Republican ideas like the state ran health insurance pools and the individual mandate. Both are Republican.
What about when the Republicans voted to extend the bush tax cuts with no problem then claimed the Payroll tax cut had to be paid for? Money for FEMA had to be "paid for" with spending cuts elsewhere.......until a RED state was involved.
Then look at the Republican financial plan: We will cut programs the primarilly benefit the lower and middle classes. But because we are all in this together we will cut taxes for those at the top forcing them to keep more money.
The BIG LIE: Increasing taxes for small business owners will result in less jobs.
First, if you only increase taxes at the $250K or $500K level you eliminate about 98% of all small business owners from a tax increase.
Second, that small business owner does not pay one dime in taxes for expenditures to support an employee. The only required is that employee has to bring in enough money to pay for himself (total cost burden).
Then there is immigration and self-deportation.
Then there is the war on women.
Then there are to calls to go to war in Iran and Syria (OK, Romney changed his mode, but it was way late in the game.)
A Fox News op-ed called "The War on Men" alleges that competitive women have turned men into marriage-averse slackers, and has triggered a predictably measured response from the internet.
"If men today are slackers, and if they're retreating from marriage," it's because the modern woman "has pissed them off," claims Suzanne Venker in her Fox column. As she explains it, "men want to love women, not compete with them. They want to provide for and protect their families - " it's in their DNA. But modern women won't let them."
Venker calls this "the war on men," but it turns out that it's more of a self-inflicted wound by women. The alleged results may actually sound A-OK for a lot of men - they get to "have sex at hello and even live with their girlfriends with no responsibilities whatsoever."
The liberal internet has responded to Venker with a big helping of snark. Hannah Rosin, author of The End of Men, claims that she would love to "surrender to her femininity," as Venker urges, but she's clueless as to how to begin. "I get the general idea but what does it mean, like, in practice? Not wear pants so much? Let my hair grow. Ask my boss to pay me a little less? Open to ideas."
