POTUS' day ahead: What women want
President Obama continues his effort to appeal to women voters Friday, scheduled to speak at a women's forum hosted by the White House in the morning. The speech is the latest effort by the president and his aides to capitalize on what they believe is a significant shift of women voters into their column in the wake of several GOP statements regarding contraception and the health care law.
In the evening, the president will host a Passover Seder at the White House.
Full schedule after the jump:
Who writes these headlines?
WHEN YOU'VE BEEN A POOR EXCUSE FOR A PRESIDENT, WHO EITHER CAN'T, OR REFUSES TO LEAD ... THEN, TRY TO CHANGE THE FOCUS, BY ACCUSING YOUR OPPONENTS OF ANYTHING, AND EVERYTHING ... WHETHER THEY'RE GUILTY, OR NOT. THAT'S THE OBAMA WAY.
Howard, President Obama has the majority of the American womens vote. Take a look at the polls
well more women are listening to the president than to the repo idiots. Romney has no idea about womans issues . rick is Mr macho head of the house kifd of guy . Both want to keep us pregnant and bare foot. Obama 2012
Thats why women should not vote.
OBAMA IS USING WOMEN AS POLITICAL PAWNS, IN THIS TRUMPED UP BOGUS ISSUE, TO TAKE ATTENTION AWAY FROM HIS FAILED PRESIDENCY. ANYONE WHO CAN'T SEE THROUGH THIS CHARADE, IS BRAIN DEAD.
Don't be dumb, lilli. Obama will receive his votes from the women who are ALREADY pregnant and barefoot and want to STAYon welfare, Section 8, and food stamps. They will be joined by some misguided soccer moms who have never read a Supreme Court decision (or maybe anything at all except Doonesbury), never miss an American idol but have never watched CSpan, and some university militants who think their educations should be financed by anyone but themselves. That's pretty much Obama's real fan base.
I am just waiting now for Romney Robot to start blathering about how he will help American Women and their health concerns.
Just watch him -erase the Etch a sketch and start over and say that he never said he would kill Planed Parenthood, Bla,Bla,Bla.
B- you may want to pay attention. This administration supports the Muslim Brotherhood. Obama tries to erase everything on a daily basis. He will not run on his record because it is poor. I do not want Planned Parenthood to get my money. I do not want Media Matters to get my money. I do not want BO illegal uncle to get my money. I do not want gree companies that look like they are going to fail get my money. I do not a person in the WH that thinks he can bypass congress and thinks the supreme court can only "review" cases. BO and Holder think the American people are stupid. They purposely used the word 'review" instead of "overturn". Their arrogance has caught up to them. It is time for them to get out.
Say what you want about Romney, but he is the very best option this country has.
And, BTW, where the heck is the story about the 13 year old that needed to go to spring break on our dime with 25 secret service people?
CNN, you and your peers are shills for this governmnet and you are cowards for not doing your job, unless of course your job is to get BO reelected, which it appears to be.
Hey John,you should be ashamed of Bush,you hypocritical republicans tend to forget how that president Bush dragged this country thru the mud at our expense.Bush,if you conveniently forgot spent more time on vacations than being at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave..That is a feat only you idiots would love....
I will say it again – you libs think Bush was by far the worst president this country has ever seen, but that is the standard you hold BO to? Stupid libs.
Say didn't the Bush twins Jenna study in Spain and Barbara in Italy? Wonder what the security detail was for that? Barbara also vacationed for one spring break in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Then there was the spring break when they ditched their secret service detail, and used fake ID's to buy drinks that landed them in hot water?
Once again, you libs think Bush was the worst president ever and that is the standard you are holding BO to? When the next president takes over with all key indicators worse than when BO took over are you libs going to say BO left this country in better shape than Bush? Given how you libs think this country has "turned the corner" I assume you will – and you will be wrong yet again.
Obama will say anything to get re-elected. Just like he did to get elected in the first place.
POTUS Obama knows what women want,and he'll give it to them,even against the republican idiots rebuttals.People with intelligence,ya know the Democrates,Independents are seeing how stead fast the rightwingers are against women's rights,healthcare,contraceptives,voters rights,every thing most middle class citizens want and deserve...So come November,when women will be heard at the polls,republicans will be kicking their political butts in shame,then heading home to get more of the same from their respected spouses...
President Obama was speaking very sobering this morning to and about women in America and all over the world. He spoke to the needs and of our relevance! He began to talk about the great impact of women and girls, as we relate to fixing the economy. He said...'women aren't a 'special interest' or focus group', and shouldn't have to be treated as such'. From the few moments of his presentation that we were allowed to hear, the speech was uplifting and I believe, touched the hearts, minds and souls of so many of us who were listening; but of course as soon as he was getting into the positive points of detail about the womans' position, economically, socially, and even politically in America, CNN interrupted him to put on some 'talking-heads' for their opinions about what the President was saying!?! Well...they couldn't hear what he was saying! You had them sitting up there trying to breakdown and pick apart his first 2 or 3 sentences! One of the clowns even compared him to a 'stand-up comedian'!! I know that this is a serious man and he was addressing a serious issue! You media instigators always find an uncouffed fool or two to try to dismiss, demean, and diminish any and everything this President does; even if it is a good idea; a good cause; a good political decision! Why in the world do you all continue to do this to a 'US President', when he's speaking to the nation?? You have done it over and over again!! It's become so blatantly obvious that most of today's media snakes refuses to let the masses make up their own minds about this President on truth and the actual hearing of a simple speech!! I say it is one of the most sabatoging acts committed against him, besides the desrespectful, obstructive behavior shown President Obama by the Congress!! I remember even when I was a child we had to miss our favorite tv shows when The 'President of The United States spoke! Oh yes...he was on ALL the stations too!! This was the ongoing 'policy' all the way up to the last 'President' of The United States, George W Bush!! So now you want us to believe that President Obama isn't being treated or handled any differently?? And when it's pointed out by some, WE are the trouble-makers who are creating division?? This thing is just one of the examples of the perpetual malfeascense, strategically and intentionally waged against this President! You are wrong and should be stopped...I don't like it.
HYPOCRISY ... on the same day, meeting with the Muslim Brotherhood, who totally abuses women, while at the same time, pandering to women in front of the cameras, and accusing your political opponents of being anti-woman. This lying snake will do, or say anything to get reelected !!!
Howard, President Obama has the majority of the women vote. check out the polls
Willard, why your ears ringin so loud, caus woman dispise you, you stupid sob!!!
I see John and Howard are up to their usual crap! How soon their senial brains forget the wreck Bush left this country in and let's not forget 3 hour naps everyday and his gazillion trips to Camp David. I am a 100% Texan and am proud to say thank God we are not all as ignorant as Bush and his republican followers. You 2 old goats need to move over to FOX and suck up their lies. They are probably paying you two to blog everyday on here. Drop dead you two a**holes.
OBAMA 2012 you coward. I assume it is a trait you picked up from your cowardly parents.
The usual crab from you and other libs would be;
Defending BO's vacations, golf days, WH party days etc. and blaming Bush because he did the SAME. Actually, Bush had enough sense to stop playing gold because service men and women were at war.
Blaming Bush over and over again 3.5 years after he is gone.
Telling lies about Fox and saying "they lie" because you do not like what they say.
Answer me this – when BO is voted out and the key indicators i.e. unemployment, gas prices, housing, etc. are worse in 2012 than when he entered office – is BO leaving this country in better or worse shape than the last administration?
BTW, can you even provide us with one lie you hear on FOX? Just one would go a long way to sway our thinking that you are a stupid lib clown. Just one...
As a woman I am glad to see that a president is finally addressing issues that women face everyday. Thank you, Pres. Obama.
He addresses American issues everyday! Aren't American women American?
YES I SEE BIRTH CONTROL IS A MUCH BIGGER PROBLEM THEN JOBS HIGH GAS PRICES SUPPORTING THE MUSLIM BROTHER HOOD WITH 1.5 BILLION DOLLARS SO THEY CAN TREAT THIER WOMAN EVEN MORE LIKE CRAP THEATENING OUR SUPREME COURT JUDGES THEN SAYING HE DIDNT STEPPING ALL OVER OUR CONSTITUTION TRY TO TAKE CREDIT FOR THINGS HE HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH IT WILL BE MUCH PLEASURE TO SEE HIM FAIL AT GETTING A SECOND TERM IM PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN NOT LIKE OUR PHONY SO CALLED PRESIDENT GOD BLESS ALL ARE SERVICE PEOPLE TO
As usual, more optics for the cameras and platitudes for the masses, some people will believe anything.
@Sponge-Bob...I guess you've got a point there!! Some people sure do! That was provened to be so in the last administration....TWICE!! LOL! You all trusted Bush/Cheney/Rove and Rumsfeld!! LOL!!! Nothing but lies, cover-ups and more lies!!
@Name*LizCarter,they,those republican hypocrites don't like ya throwing mud on their elustreous neanderthal Bush.One who created a war but for convinence,a political smoke screen for himself ,Cheneys and Rove to go pillaging the countryside while we consern ourselves with the war,and other problems they created along the way,an eight year distraction of the worst kind,period....
If you really want to settle down, don't make stipulations and rules about who you're looking for. If you think a woman is nice or interesting, ask her out. Take that chance. Maybe the working girl is waiting for a reason to settle down, or the home-maker type wouldn't have a problem working.
This woman wants life, liberty, education top priority, healthcare reform-people aren't commerce, a balanced budget, campaign finance reform, environmental protection and sustainable energy! =)
Well the Supreme Court seems to disagree with you.... they think corporations (commerce) are people aka...Citizens United. I see you are another of the right-wing idiots who want every issue both ways.
Republicans at this point are doing everything in their power to destroy public education....and see education only as something for the rich.
Health care = life
@Marlee,the sanctumonious republicans running the clown show don't want any interference from women.Speak when spoken to,they believe you should be seen and not heard.And don't get pregnant until I want ya too.Under republican rule women wouldn't need brains, you know that ,you definitly think like one.Republicans want to take all the rights away you women fought so hard to get,smartin up,if they have their way,you're screwed more ways than one,that's guaranteed....
The dems are supposed to be in power at the moment. I know it screws up your agenda because this country is in worse shape than it was 3.5 years ago. But, you libs tell us how this administrations policies are working. Don't get me wrong, I agree BO's policies are working. America is changing to something nobody wants.
Women want it both ways. I am woman hear me roar, excpet when I want to play the little girl who needs Obama to protect them, and I am quite the bore.
The Constutition applies equally to all people. Women aren't excluded. True, at one time women weren't allowed to vote but that is in the past. Not sure if there is anything left that descrimiates against women but if there is it should be addressed wherever it may be.
