BOREL OPINION COLUMN: Female Presidents
Scorned Women Will Turn their Backs on November Democrats
by Helen Borel
I fear the media, which has hyped the race card (that was never the issue at all in the contest between Barack and Hillary) to the hilt during the primaries, will now have to lie in the bed (or maybe they'll be ousted to the couch) they have made...come November.
America is Still Stuck in the Male Misogynist Era
Never before have I witnessed such anti-female prejudice; except when in my generation a woman would, God forbid, doing her best achieve a high position,or earn it but a less qualified male colleague would get it. How small-minded our nation still is. But, how dare we not take the concept of a female leader seriously? It's disgusting what was done to Senator Clinton.
But Wait, America...There are a Lot of Angry Women Out There So, here's my prediction:
THERE ARE A LOT OF ANGRY WOMEN IN AMERICA TODAY. ANGRY AT THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY!
I hear they feel this country's time was ready for a female president. LIKE OTHER CIVILIZED NATIONS! Like Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Like Prime Minister Golda Meir. Like Indira Ghandi. Like Benazir Bhuto. Like that Norwegian woman president, whose name I can't remember...even like the Amazons running their own society.
If these angry American women, who feel betrayed by their own party, rise up and act in concert at voting venues throughout the U.S. of A. in November:
- Angry that the men in this country are rabidly sexist (as are some of their wives and sisters too, who may be jealous of a woman being a peer with their husbands instead of subservient to them)...
- Angry that the media in this nation was exceptionally biased against Senator Hillary Clinton during the Democratic Primary Campaign...
- Angry that Senator Clinton was forced to concede despite receiving more of the popular vote...
Then expect the Democratic nominee for president to lose.
ANTI-FEMALE SEXISM IS THE ISSUE, not "Racism"
Forget about that "racist" nonsense. America is still in the Dark Ages when it comes to concepts of egalitarianism toward females. Add to that prejudice the youth and inexperience (not to mention the naivete toward nefarious international players) of Senator Obama and you'll recognize that he is a baby, politically, compared to the experience of Senators McCain and Clinton.
Because of which, we're going to get a Republican president!
The only way to prevent that would be for Obama to choose Clinton as his Vice President. But I don't think the Democrats are smart enough to recognize the power of women in this nation. The way they threw Clinton to the media wolves, the Democrats are blind to more than half this country's voters - FEMALES!
It's not about race, guys. It's never been about race. It's about the RACE TO DISEMPOWER WOMEN. This female-marauding Primary was never about race, guys. Never about the color of the candidates' skins. It's been about skinning the leadership possibilities off women. It's not about color. It's about gender. How dare women still desire equality? After fighting for it in the Sixties (60s), where did it go?
And it's also about experience. And about action, not mere words!
It's going to be President McCain, if the Democratic Party doesn't take the gender issue seriously. Remember, a woman scorned is not a happy camper and she'll make you miserable while she's unhappy. What does the Democratic dysleadership think will happen with millions of women scorned?
In 2012, the Agenda will be About Gender
Female Democrats appear, to me at least (others seem to be blind about this because they are not even discussing this prime issue much, if at all) to be READY FOR A WOMAN LEADER OF THIS NATION. And these women are mad as hell about what the Party did to Hillary. I don't think they will put up with this.
I believe many, if not most, of these angry women will vote for McCain. It'll be their only way of protest. Their sole opportunity to send a scathing message to the Democratic misleaders. To jostle them and jolt them into realizing that, come 2012, watch out! The agenda will be about gender. We will even have two women on their respective Republican and Democratic tickets. Each. That will include v.p. candidates as well.
Guys...We've had male presidents all along. Look where it got us. Into wars. Into jobs outsourced to other countries while many here are underemployed or unemployed. Deep into a failing economy. Real Estate in hot water. Katrina victims living in shelters or under bridges due to male-government-run FEMA which managed not to get basic supplies and necessities to the Louisiana victms, while leaving millions of tax-dollar-paid new supplies in expensive storage, undistributed to those in need. And, last but not least, tainted Rx drugs, left without professional, scientific or ethical oversight.
Do we need another man, of either party, to give us more of the same?
