Obama focuses on women's issues in Denver


Denver (CNN) – At the first stop of a two-day campaign trip through Colorado, President Obama made his pitch to female voters, telling a crowd here that on women's health issues his opponents "want to take us back to the policies more suited to the 1950's than the 21st century."

"The decisions that affect a woman's health, they're not up to politicians, they're not up to insurance companies. They're up to you," Obama said. "And you deserve a President who will fight to keep it that way. That's the President I've been. That's the President I will be if I get a second term as President of the United States, to keep moving this country forward."

    President Obama already has the majority of the American womens vote. Look at the polls.

      Obama has the womens vote because he is "A Pretty Boy" and a player just like his buddy Clinton.

      President Obama will win this election with the majority of the American womens vote and the majority of the American Latino vote. Women know a rube when they see one. And romney is a rube

      Obama, Reid, and Pelosi are just DIRTY LIARS. Besides, the only reason Obama is even with Romney in the polls, is because Obama has already spent over 100 million dollars trashing Romney in television ads ... Romney is not permitted to spend his money on advertising until after the Republican convention. What you Obama stooges don't seem to understand is America is more important than Obama ... and, Obama is destroying America.

        Janet Napolitano, Head of Homeland Security had Conservatives close to what would be describe as a fit compared to epilepsy when she first was sworn in for her appointment to the Dept. dissing her over her comment that the threat from U.S. based militant groups is a serious and overlooked problem.
        The Sihk community that was just attacked by a RIGHT-WING HATE GROUPIE estimated that their peaceful group has been singled-out at least 700 times for racist attacks. There are 1,000 known hate groups that are openly and NOT SO OPENLY operating in this country.
        With a name like ashad, and your halting writing, I would assume you might have experience with that. And, perhaps understand if the Pres. was named George AND NOT Barack he might even be tolerated some tiny bit more.
        Why would someone even think discrimination against anyone would be okay? Trying to fit in and HOPING that they aren't the next ones targeted for hate? Just over a name. Or, a religion. Or, the shade of skin you have.

        You really think Mitt goes to the grocery store? Let alone with less than $100 dollars to feed a family of three for even a week? YOU ARE CLUELESS. AND, MITT DOESN"T CARE ABOUT YOU!

      THERE ARE MILLIONS OF INTELLIGENT WOMEN IN AMERICA, BUT NOT THE ONES WHO ARE PUTTING THE FUTURE OF OUR COUNTRY IN THE HANDS OF AN INEPT FOOL, JUST BECAUSE THEY LIKE HIS SMILE, OR HIS CELEBRITY CRONIES. Obama has spent over 100 million trashing Romney ... and, Romney is not allowed to spend anything in return until after the GOP convention ... so, the polls don't mean much at this point in time.

    Obama's support among women must be directly related to a woman's inability to understand basic finances. Otherwise they could clearly recognize the massive debt that Obama continues to heap onto their children.

      You can't even balance your own personal bank statement.
      You can't even comprehend that Mitt has $100 MILLION DOLLARS in an IRA. You do know what an IRA is, don't ya?
      It's a TAX-FREE-RETIREMENT ACCOUNT set up by the government designed to help the middle-class be able to have a savings program that can grow without being subjected to taxation. THERE IS A $6,000.00 DEPOSIT TOTAL PER YEAR.
      MITT somehow magically has $100 MILLION DOLLARS IN THIS TAX SHELTER. If you can't understand the basic unfairness to the program and to the AVERAGE PERSON it was designed to help, OR undestand that Mitt takes every angle and his every step to AVOID PAYING TAXES SCREWING THE COUNTRY, then, you don't really care and REALITY IS TAKING A BITE OUT OF YOU.

        @Howard Larry Moe CurlyJoe WELFARE QUEEN
        You're just a slap-happy stooge for KARL ROVE'S CROSSROADS GPS who claims his policial attack machine is a lowly SOCIAL WELFARE ORGANIZATION –TAX EXEMPT OF COURSE
        NO WONDER you aren't concerned about MITT'S TAX EVASION – YOU are working for the SAME ORGANIZATION who raises money for him and of course wouldn't be bother by their TAX EXEMPT – STATUS as a cover. You are PAID to repeat your tired talking points – OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND.....OVER. AND, you don't mind receiving a paycheck for spreading LIES ABOUT VOTING to our military and their families in fill in the blanks.
        BBs for brains AND THAT AIN'T A COMPLIEMENT is just the janitor that cleans your CONVERTED OFFICE made out of a dented shipping container HOPING to get promoted so he doesn't have to take out your trash filled with soggy, mustard stained McDonald's bags and left over rotting noodles from the Chinese Take-out down the street from the dump where you're located.

        @Howard Larry Moe CurlyJoe Welfare Queen

        Polling results today –Romney is taking a loss with Independent voters who have polled at a 52% NEGATIVE VIEW OF HIM.
        67% of Independent voters think that Romney SHOULD RELEASE HIS TAX RETURNS.

        P.S. I sure hope your dented shipping-container is air-conditioned. It's probably hard to (cough) work in the heat when there ain't no windows. I'm sure BBs for brains AND THAT'S NOT A COMPLIEMENT- could try to jury-rig a fan made from discarded duck wings from the dumpster behind the Chinese Take-out.
