This week, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released video showing a young white man entering a polling place in Washington D.C. to vote in the presidential primary.
He walked up to the desk and asked a poll worker for the ballot of Attorney General Eric Holder, and gave Holder’s address. The worker began to hand him the ballot, at which point the young man said he wanted to show his identification. “You don’t need it,” the poll worker replied. “It’s all right. As long as you’re in here, you’re on our list, and that’s who you say you are, you’re okay.”
The tape broke huge, with Matt Drudge championing it at the top of the Drudge Report. And sure enough, the Department of Justice, which sometimes plays to Drudge’s tune, responded with ire and outrage: “It’s no coincidence that these so-called examples of rampant voter fraud consistently turn out to be manufactured ones.”
Except, of course, that wasn’t the point. O’Keefe wasn’t voting fraudulently; he was showing the public how easy it would be for someone with bad motives to vote fraudulently. And the DOJ knew that – it would take a full-on fool not to understand that point.
Yet another liberal attacks the concept of mothers staying at home to raise their children.
Terry O’Neill of N.O.W. (National Organization for Women), a far left pro-abortion group that has successfully pushed the Democratic Party further and further into a far more radicalized version of liberalism in recent decades goes on the attack against Ann Romney for what O’Neill sees as lack of experience for the mother of five, cancer survivor, and one who deals with the challenges of living with multiple sclerosis:
Ann Romney has never, has not worked for pay outside the home a day in her life? That’s my understanding that’s an accurate statement, and that raises the exact issue that Hilary Rosen was trying to get to, which is do Mr. & Mrs. Romney have the kind of life experience and if not, the imagination, to really understand what most American families are going through right now? I think that that was what Hilary was getting out, and so she left out the words “for pay outside the home.”
So according to the head of the National Organization for Women, if you are a stay at home mom who is raising children, keeping up with the demands of budget, school, shopping, bill paying, etc. – you don’t have the kind of life experience and or imagination to “really understand what most American families are going through right now.”
Yeah – let that one sink in.
I said this yesterday and believe it is worth repeating – it is the far Left in America that has always waged a war on women. It is a war that demands all women conform to the ideals of liberal feminism, and those who do not are then deemed by the Left as lesser people – stay at home moms have long been placed in that category as “lesser”.
And it is THIS kind of divisive and demeaning politics that has thrived under the presidency of Barack Obama.

Rosen: Only Republicans Spread The “War on Women” Term, Obama Campaign “Does Not Use It”…
Really? — Because just last night Biden said “the war on women is real.”
Over in the Corner, Jonah noted that Hilary Rosen also said last night,
Can we just get rid of this word, “war on women”? The Obama campaign does not use it, President Obama does not use it — this is something that the Republicans are accusing people of using, but they’re actually the ones spreading it.
Every Democrat from Pelosi to Boxer has repeatedly used the term.
Plus the DNC store sells “War on Women” car magnets:
If you’ve ever worked for a news organization and not liked it, now’s the time to speak up, apparently. First, the Fox News mole fiasco, then the Newt Gingrich-Fox News feud, and, now, John Stossel, saying what I like to read immeasurably more than I cared to read the mole’s uninformative insider accounts:
Stossel left ABC in 2009 after working there for 28 years “because it sucked,” he said.
“They were hostile to these ideas that made us prosperous and I consider so important. They tolerated me for years,” said Stossel, “but by the end they were saying ‘Oh, you’re so predictable Stossel, you want to use libertarian economics all the time.’” …
“I was not offered a job by Fox,” he said. “I went over there and begged ‘Please hire me, I can’t stand it anymore.’”
