Obama makes health care appeal to female voters
President Barack Obama is still trying to sway the female vote, in his bid for re-election, as he told women supporters that the election-year fight over contraception access has been, in his words, “like being in a time machine.” At a conference Friday, on womens’ issues, Obama said the days of male politicians controlling women’s health care decisions must come to an end.
Obama says that Republican efforts to meddle in women’s health issues are “appalling, offensive and out of touch.”
Actually, it’s the Obama Administration doing the meddling, trying to tell us, the American people, businesses, and the religious community, that “they have to cover free contraceptives and the morning after pill”, for all women. And he created a firestorm, when he attacked religion with his mandates. Little did he know the resistance he would meet.
Obama and his Republican challenger Mitt Romney are both targeting female voters, who could hold the key to electoral success. Polls show Obama with a sizeable lead over Romney with women, but this also depends on which poll you believe, the ones taken by the left, or those taken by the right.
The National Issues Conference is a two-day fundraising event organized by Obama backers to draw attention to administration policies aimed at women. Most tickets for the 600-person conference cost $1,000.
