Chairman Priebus: “Will Obama Apologize to Women for His Failures?”
Chairman Priebus: “Will Obama Apologize to Women for His Failures?”

Excerpts from Townhall

By: Reince Priebus

April 27, 2012

“Today, President Obama will speak at a Women’s Issues Conference organized by his campaign in Washington, DC. Hopefully he will take the time to apologize to the women in attendance.

“Despite Democrats’ talk of standing for women, the Obama economy has been especially unforgiving for women across the country.

“Recently, RNC Co-Chair Sharon Day summed it up nicely:

“‘At kitchen tables and in the job market, it’s clear that women are suffering. Gas, groceries, and healthcare are more expensive. Wives and mothers struggle to make ends meet and fear for their children’s futures. Businesswomen wonder what regulations and taxes Obama will force on them next’…

“Try as he might, President Obama cannot hide the facts.

“There are fewer women working today than when President Obama took office.

* Since his inauguration, the unemployment rate for women has increased from 7 percent to 8.1 percent.
* The number of female employees has decreased by 683,000.

“The job market is so bad, women are giving up looking for jobs altogether.

* The female labor force participation rate fell in March from 57.9 percent to 57.7 percent.
* The number of women not in the labor force increased in March from 52.8 million to 53.1 million.
* While male participation increased by 14,000, female participation fell by 177,000…

“Republicans are committed to delivering that better America. The Democrats’ agenda isn’t working for women. Their vision has produced big government and limited opportunity. Our vision is for limited government and opportunity for all…”

“Women deserve better than what President Obama has delivered. And they certainly deserve a president that is honest with them about the challenges they face.”

    I think it is a far stretch to use unemployment and private sector benefit and wage cuts and job exporting and poverty increase stats to say president is at fault or against anyone. My boy Newt called Barry the biggest food stamp president in history. Well that’s what happens when you inherit an economy with unemployment double and triple normal dismal rates. I think the real importance of the stats is that the entire congress has no clue has to how many millions of people are living is such destitution and desperation. I have the solution to create 30 million jobs “If you are going to sell it here, it has to be made here”

      “If you are going to sell it here, it has to be made here” – that’s exactly what China tells to American companies. If we actually had a big government, we could ask Chinese to do the same.

    White women used to be part of the Employment equity quota system here until last year sometime.
    Now, both white men and women can only be employed if the black quota has been filled.
    Which makes it quite daunting to find a job here in SA if you’re a whitey!!
    Then again, females have always lagged behind in the employement market – don’t see that changing anytime soon!!
