Obama Has a Mommy Gap

Scary violent grandmas!

The Left are pathological liars. They portray the TEA Partiers as angry violent racists, when even the police marvel at the “remarkably peaceful” nature of TEA Parties.
In a classic case of psychological projection, the truth is that the violent racists actually are on the Left, as in:

Instead of being angry white males, more than half of TEA Partiers are moms. Although Obama won 56% of the female vote in 2008, today a majority of TEA party supporters—55%—are women.
Teabag that, Obama! 

Moms to the Barricades

‘The tea parties are an extension of our need to protect the future for our children.’
By Michael Graham – Wall St. Journal – May 8, 2010
If Momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy. And if you’ve been to a tea party, you know Momma ain’t happy at all. Forget “angry white men.” In the male-dominated world of conservative politics, the tea party stands out as a movement of energized and organized women. In particular, moms.
Moms like Sarah Palin, of course, who’s been described as the “Momma Bear” of the tea party movement. But more important are the thousands of women at the state and local level who created this political phenomenon.
Moms like Christen Varley, the suburban mother of four who organized the successful tea party rally on Boston Common last month. Moms like Karen Miner Herd, who calls herself “one of the founding mothers” of the tea party movement in Virginia. Her favorite tea party sign? “Menopause Was Change Enough for Me.”
In fact, a recent Quinnipiac poll of voters found a majority of tea party supporters—55%—are women. To put that in perspective, only 48% of women voted for George W. Bush in 2004. And just two years ago, President Obama won 56% of the female vote.
As part of a recent book project I’ve been asking women around the country: Why are you angry? What is it about the tea party movement that energizes busy working moms to get even busier organizing protests?
Many women gave the most obvious answer: “If we waited around for you men to do it, it would never get done.”
When I asked Christen Varley, the Boston tea party leader, she said it’s because moms tend to be “the CEO’s of our households. We do the shopping, bill paying, budgeting, etc. We know less money means less freedom. Maybe if the president and Congress did the grocery shopping, they’d know why we’re mad.”
Dana Loesch, talk host and co-founder of the St. Louis tea party, believes the tea party movement is the modern conservative version of “the personal is political.” “Motherhood itself has become a political act,” says Ms. Loesch. “And the tea parties are an extension of our need as moms to protect the future for our children.”
Keli Carender isn’t a mom, but the Seattle-area 30-something is the mother of the tea party movement. She held the very first rally of the modern tea party era to protest the so-called stimulus package, days before Rick Santelli’s infamous CNBC rant. The tea party idea “just clicked in the minds of conservative women,” she says. “Most women I know are thinking ‘I’m taking care of my family and the government’s taking care of it’s business—right?’ Then they see what the government is really doing and they saw ‘Whoa, whoa! I guess I’ve gotta take care of their mess, too.'”
Mr. Graham, a radio talk show host in Boston, is the author of “That’s No Angry Mob—That’s My MOM!” (Regnery, 2010).

It is a really positive thing for us moms to be so prominent in the tea party movement. Sarah Palin is brilliant to tap into the strength of moms. We will fight, and then we will fight some more if our babies’ future is in any jeopardy. One of my philosophies is that you can talk about ME all that you want, but if you go after one of mine without cause, you will have hell to pay. My family can vouch for my adherance to this. Obama is clueless and we moms can surround and outnumber him so fast… Read more »

Ron–Dads are just as important as moms when it comes to their children. Didn’t mean to sound like it is just us moms. A big part of the decline in this nation is from the breakdown of the family. Kids need both parents.

DC—I agree–The absence of discipline or the absence of one parent leads to family breakdown. I also believe the decline of the family began when the libs took God out of our schools and then voted in abortion, and allowed Hollywood to go XXX rated. Nothing destroys a family or a government quicker than the decline of morals and you can see it in Europe, here in the US and all over the world–little by little moral decay is destroying the every society. Look at Osama Obama, Pelosi and many of the dems in office. They voted for after birth… Read more »

EO–I hear my children using words today that fit the category quite well. I doubt we have the power to change government but we do have the power to slow it down. Eventually, someone will overthrow the current government because it no longer meets the needs of the people. It is foolhardy to undermine the rich for the sake of the poor. The rich are the ones who truly run things and eventually they will get fed up with government and their new ideas. Newspeak, as you know was designed to be full fledged by 2050–I doubt the government will… Read more »
