Women are more than pawns in a numbers game

 

Headline from

DNC press release

“Key Points: And therein lies the problem for the GOP, which has struggled to recruit and elect Republican women for decades. No women are polling in the top 10 for potential Republican presidential candidates two years after the party identified outreach to women as a weakness.”

Between the Lines

From my perspective, I am perfectly OK if the Democrats keep Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, and Wendy Davis, and I’ll take a Michele Bachmann, Susana Martinez, or Marsha Blackburn anytime over another Olympia Snowe. What the Republican Party needs are candidates who can distinguish themselves from the Democrats rather than simply going along.

“... In less than a minute, Mitt Romney named five white men. Only when asked did he include a woman: New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, whom Romney said had ‘potential.’

“And therein lies the problem for the GOP, which has struggled to recruit and elect Republican women for decades. No women are polling in the top 10 for potential Republican presidential candidates ... .”

I love it when the liberals try to solve all the “problems” for the Republicans. While the Republicans certainly do have more than their share of problems, I think one of the biggest ones is that they continue to take advice from the liberals.

If there were a strong conservative leader to take the reins, we could have the Democrats quaking in their boots. With the current Republican leadership, or lack thereof, the Democrats are running circles around Republicans. Another Ronald Reagan would be nice!

Because Democrats have way more women within their ranks does not mean Republicans are losing out. It could mean that they are looking for qualifications over image. Rather than look at people as black or white or male or female, conservatives should be looking at leadership qualities and forget taking marching orders from the Democrats. Until that happens, we are under the thumb of liberals.

“Saira Blair may not be old enough to vote, but the 17-year-old high school senior from Martinsburg, West Virginia, has already unseated an incumbent state lawmaker.”

Here you go, Republicans! You have someone who could become the youngest person to be elected to the House in West Virginia -- and she is female, to boot! She speaks with confidence and espouses her pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, and fiscally conservative philosophy.

She has yet to graduate from high school, but has won the Republican Primary. She will be 18 in July, just in time to face a Democratic opponent in November. If Republicans would only take a lesson from the Dems’ playbook, they would jump on this as a campaign issue. They could make national news with a woman candidate who could have a bright future ahead of her. As a buzzpo.com blogger wrote, she could be “Bloomberg’s worst nightmare: a pro-gun teenager with a vote.”

Come on, Republicans. Start grooming her now, a la Julian Castro.
