Mitt Romney and the Female Vote


Mitt Romney has just announced his “Women For Mitt Coalition.” FYI, Debbie Wasserman Schultz is not on the list.

Mitt Romney will need to do well among women to have a shot at The White House. Polls show that Romney has some work to do among women voters, especially in some of the key swing states.

Who’s on Romney’s female coalition list? Here are a few names:

• Michele Bachmann
• Condoleezza Rice
• Karen Santorum
• Callista Gingrich
• Mary Pawlenty
• Anita Perry
• Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, Texas
• Sen. Kelly Ayotte, New Hampshire
• Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Alaska
• Sen. Olympia Snowe, Maine
• Sen. Susan Collins, Maine
• Gov. Jan Brewer, Arizona
• Gov. Mary Fallin, Oklahoma
• Gov. Nikki Haley, South Carolina
• Gov. Susana Martinez, New Mexico

Ho-Hum.

The Brody File thinks the real action to watch will be how many evangelical women show up at the polls. According to Concerned Women for America there are 60 million evangelical women in America. Only half of them vote. A few million more votes in key swing states would make a monumental difference.

To that end, CWA has started their, “She Votes 2012 Bus Tour.” It will roll through a handful of key states this month (yes, even making stops at a Chick-fil-a and a few churches!).

The idea here is to get more women to register to vote and then have them show up at the polls. According to CWA, North Carolina went to President Obama in 2008 by just 14,177 votes.

Guess what? There were 280,000 or so unregistered evangelical Christians in the state just standing on the sidelines.

Why don't Christian women vote? We can turn the tide against the onslaught of government trying to take over our lives.

He hasn't earned my vote yet and unless he explain his past he never will.

I hope that Americans will wake up and realize that Ron Paul is the GOOD GUY. I hope that the people will have a HUGE WRITE-IN VOTE for Ron Paul. Every polling place needs a sign-up sheet with names, addresses and phone #s of all who voted for Ron Paul so that his votes cannot be stolen. America may not have another opportunity to overthrow the evil shadow government that is destroying America and backing both Romney and Obama. If good people can rise up for Chick Fil A and Freedom of Speech, I sure hope that they can rise up for constitutional freedom and restore constitutional government to America.

I THINK IT IS OUR CHRISTIAN DUTY TO VOTE FOR THE BEST OF THE WORST. I DO NOT LIKE ROMNEY BUT HE IS BETTER THAN OBAMA.
