So, that is why I was kind of surprised at her position [given on Fox News Channel Special Report Show on Tuesday April 8, 2014] on president Obama's call for equal pay for women, especially as he used bogus statistics and he revealed total hypocrisy in his call, as his White House does not meet the standards of equal pay for women that he demands of the private sector.
Listen to Charles Krauthammer on the topic:
Mara was listening with great respect to Charles, but then made this statement "Everything you say Charles may be true" and then she said [paraphrasing], "but this [Obama's rhetoric] will have an affect on women and it is a good political move by the president to help the Democrats in November."
Think about what Mara said. Even if everything Dr. Krauthammer said was true about president Obama's lying demagoguery, those real facts wouldn't matter to women and they would fall for the emotional rhetoric by the president even though his statements were false.
I respect Mara Liasson, but isn't that demeaning to women about their intelligence and ability to reason. Remember she began her statement of approval of president Obama's statement, by allowing that "everything [Charles Krauthammer] said may be true." So, it wasn't "I don't agree with your assertions Charles" which if she had made that qualification, I wouldn't be writing this post. I think, and what I was hoping Mara Liasson would have said in response to Charles Krauthammer was, "If what you are saying is true Charles, then I think women will be intelligent enough to see through the president's rhetoric, and his statements will not help and could actually backfire on the Democrats in the upcoming elections."
I have more respect for women's intelligence than Mara and believe they will determine the facts and make a reasoned decision about the president's and Democrats hyperbolic accusations against Republicans so-called "war on women" as they exemplify falsely in the "Republicans not wanting equal pay for women". I sure hope I am right, and not Mara Liasson, about women's decision making.
Again, this post is not so much an attack on the intelligent Mara Liasson as on all the Democrats who actually are so demeaning to women to think that they can influence a woman's vote by emotional lies rather than reasoned facts.
Thank God we don't have long to go to find out as the November elections are just a half a year away.
