Democrats Do Not Speak for Republican Women

Smart Girl Politics Action launches "They Don't Speak for Us" asking women to put the conversation back on real issues important to women. Women are forced everyday to make sacrifices and its time that we put pressure on Congress and this Administration to stop playing games and get back to work for the American people.

On Good Friday, the White House is holding a conference on economic issues and women. On Good Friday. What an odd choice of days.

US President Barack Obama hosts a forum Friday on women and the economy, as aides warn of a "devastating" impact on the key voting bloc if the Supreme Court overturns his health care law.

The White House said the forum would "examine the ways in which the administration has worked to ensure women's economic security and create jobs for women, through all stages of life."

It's re-election time for President Obama. He is clearly worried about the "womens vote" and is doing what Democrats always do - pander to different groups of voters instead of bringing everyone together and dealing with issues like the economy as a national issue that concerns everyone.

Team Obama is using the distraction of a bogus claim - that Republicans are waging a "war on women". It is standard Democratic operating procedure in an election to claim that Republicans don't support women and ignores the fact that conservative women are leading the fight against this administration's intrusion into the lives of families across the country. The Tea Party movement, for example, is clearly led by fiscally conservative women. Team Obama knows it cannot win this election on the issues and on the record of Barack Obama. The record is dismal and now they are sweating out the Supreme Court decision on Obamacare, the signature legislation of Barack Obama's time in the White House.

Republican women are not afraid. Republican women are not silently allowing the Democrats to frame the issues concerning American families and American women, in particular. Gone are those days. Republican women are in the trenches and fighting for all Americans.

Republican women are not distracted.

Instead of orchestrating a distraction like contraception and birth control paid for by insurance companies, if Barack Obama truly was interested in bettering the lives of American women he would be working night and day on the real issues - energy policy, national unemployment, rising grocery prices, creeping inflation, public schools, and so on. Those are American family issues. Those are American issues.

Barack Obama is a community organizer. Community organizers divide, they do not unite. Barack Obama has been the most divisive president in recent memory. It is time for him to go.

Tell Barack Obama to stop using women as political pawns. Tell Barack Obama to stop the cheap political games.

Republican women demand better.
