Obama's Campaign Co-Chair Eva Longoria Shows Their True Colors About Women

It appears that Obama's campaign Co-Chair Eva Longoria tweeted some very unpolite things about women who are going to vote for Romney, the other night during the second debate. Apperently she called Romney a female organ and that any women voting for Romney has to be stupid. Well apparently she is getting a lot of back slash from women on this, that they do not appreciate being called stupid, and that they are voting with their brains and not their women parts. Apparently, Eva tried to blame it on hacking, but eventually she apologized for her tweet. So is this how the left feel about women on the right?

If this were an elected official or somebody important in American culture, I'd be a little upset about this. Not because it's Romney, but because it's essentially voter intimidation. You have freedom of speech, and freedom of choice, but when you use your speech to denigrate and intimidate someone due to their choice, it puts a lot of pressure on making that choice. Why not just choose what the bully wants in order to avoid confrontation? But since this is Eva Longoria, I understand that it's just another Hollywood elite suffering from SCS -- Stupid Celebrity Syndrome. Total case of inflated self worth (which many on Twitter do suffer from, not only celebrities! lol) There's a lot of vanity and narcissism in wanting to be seen and adored by millions of people. There's a lifestyle that comes along with starring on a hit TV show willingly, freely marrying another popular celebrity, and gladly accepting anything putting you in the public eye. My point: Celebrities believe people care about them personally. And while this is undoubtedly the case with some of the culture, most just want celebrities to play their character, not themselves. This is just another case in a thick file of celebrities gracing us all with their political opinions. What's worse, at least for me, is that most of these celebrities who tweet and post about politics seem to have no mind of their own. Just as Eva reads from a script for her TV spots, she's borrowing lines from likeminded individuals in Hollywood who spout the same stuff and espouse the same decidedly left-wing virtues. Actors. And despite my propensity for ranting about anything, I really find this to be a non-issue. We get what we get with celebrities. They're beasts we all feed with adoration, to the point they feel emboldened and entitled to lay their wisdom on we plebs thick and strong. We forget sometimes that these people aren't working up cures for cancer in the lab; they just wear the ribbon and make PSAs reminding us to donate. To me, that says everything we need to know about celebrities, whether it's someone insulting Michelle Obama or someone trying to intimidate and denigrate Romney voters.

All of what you say is true, but since Longoria is the co-chair of Obama's re-election campaign, her statements will be seen as representing the campaign and for this reason she should be more circumspect and more politic in what she puts out publicly and on social media. If she had no involvement with the campaign, then I am sure she wouldn't have tried to cover it up or walk it back. If the co-chair of Romney's campaign said something even half as insulting about women voters, the left would demand that person resign immediately and the statement would be broadcast 24/7 on the MSM networks until they relented and did as they were told.

We already know that the Democrats are not truly for women. Look at the pay difference in the White House which is explained by some as men have jobs with more responsibility than women (The charge has been made against Gov. Romney that he more women in lower paying jobs to make his numbers look good). President Obama also touts the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act which overturned a Supreme Court Decision. The Law said that a Law Suit can be filed within 180 days of the last pay check issued. The court said that the law was not legal and that the Statute of Limitations starts when the offer is made by the employer to the employee. Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act in essence says that any discrimination pay law suit can be filed with no time limits. It does not say that women get the same pay as men as President Obama has implied. One group that likes it is the Trial Lawyers as they can sue years later when people in the business are gone and all you have is the allegations. It is very difficult to prove that you did not discriminate.

Yah, lawmakers (usually lawyers and x lawyers) always come up with good laws that allow lawyers to make lots of money.. raising the costs of everything.. and when liberals villify republicans for being lobbied, well, of course they never reveal that lawyers are top lobbyists of the democrats, hence no tort reforms!!

I love it when dems backtrack, it shows that they can only talk out of their butts. Who cares what Eva Longoria has to say? She is only grabbing for airtime because she's a use up actress who knows nothing about the issues that face somebody who isn't told they are beautiful every minute. She also got a healthy dose of "There are more us than you think" because she tried desperately to save face even though she had egg all over hers the second she released that tweet into the digital world. I guess she thinks the 4.4 million people that follow her also bow to her, if they do then they too should be wary of retweeting anything she says.

It's always funny to me when a liberal gets caught in such an intolerant attitude. I sometimes think they really think just about everyone else is liberal, and they are shocked to find resistance to their insults.

Yes this is how they feel about women. We are simply vessels with lady parts. We ae to be pitied, protected. We can't figure things out for ourselves. We are just women. I am so offended with the left. I am so much more than that and so much better than that. Amazingly, I am doing just fine with out a man to fix things, or protect me. Her vocabulary alone shows me, I wouldn't listen to her either. Goodness, thier argument is ridiculous. Stay out of my body (abortion) but pay for it and appoint a panel of strangers to decide what I can do with my body. OY VEY! what a bunch of idiots.

Oh yes, without a doubt! As a matter of fact I believe it's how the (far) left believe about all people on the right. I don't think thus far moderate liberals feel this way.. But the more liberal and far liberal, absolutely! - And I think we on the right think of many who vote liberal as more or less brainwashed by liberal influenced education, culture, such as movies, and don't forget, the liberal media, which until just a few years ago was about every news outlet, except for one or two on the radio, now there is Fox News which dares to be not liberal, which of course now a main mantra of the left is, "oh, you must listen to FOX news" and the capitals are theirs, and to them that is the end of any need for dialogue. Any opinion right of center left is totally irrelevant and worse than ignorant as far as they/many of them are concerned.

"So is this how the left feel about women on the right?" Yes. This is the way the left feels about anyone who is part of a group that they believe should support them and should employ their brand of "group think". They are just as insulting to black conservatives. She has damaged her image, briefly, with people who might not agree with her political views and are female. But until Hollywood is demoted in the eyes of the public, until these celebrities realize that they are not famous because we think they are intellectuals and that their personal opinions are not automatically worthy of becoming public policy, they will continue to subject us to those opinions.
