Mitch Daniels says:
“We need to really present ourselves in Indiana and Tennessee and places elsewhere as people who favor change that believes in you, that believes you are an individual of dignity and a person who is fully up to the task of leading your own life.”
Chip Forrester says:
“Tennessee Republicans have a surplus of bad ideas that make it harder for working people to get by or for their kids to get a decent education — there’s no need to steal inspiration from Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, the man who wrote the failed economic policies that led us into Bush’s recession.”
I say, really? A Democrat hears what came out of Daniels’ mouth and the first thing that pops into his head is “working people”? Not the blatant hypocrisy of claiming to believe that I am a person of dignity and fully up to the task of leading my own life and then assaulting my ability to lead my own life like it’s going out of style just because I’m a woman?
Seriously, when you can’t say “funny, they don’t seem to believe that about women” but instead have to talk about “working people” or “kids” (never mind the amount of people in this state who aren’t working but would like to be), we women should take note. and then underline it. “People” and “kids” get defended. We don’t.
