Doctor Gina Loudon, co-author of the new book What Women Really Want, appeared on Fox News, along with Democratic Strategist Christy Setzer to discuss recent comments made by DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz where she essentially compared Florida Governor Rick Scott to a domestic abuser. Wasserman-Schultz is known for her outlandish comments and of course, the left makes excuses for her.
Christy Setzer didn’t defend the comments. Instead she said called the comments “dumb” and said they weren’t “choice words,” because it took the DNC Chair away from her message talking about the actual records of Republican Governors on issues that should matter to women. So what issues matter to women, according to Christy Setzer? Well, she specifically lists raising the minimum wage, and funding for rape crisis centers and legal aid centers for domestic violence.
Dr. Gina had a much different perspective. She pointed out that women are concerned with much more broad issues, such as national security and economic security. Dr. Gina has been traveling the country talking with women about what matters to them and points out that the Democrats are not focusing on the right things. She accused the Democrats of trying to manipulate women instead of speaking to them as intellectuals who are concerned with things that aren’t directly related to their gender.
Towards the end of the segment, Dr. Gina seemed to strike a nerve with Christy Setzer when she rightly pointed out that the Democrats have been more concerned with free birth control than they have with women around the world who are being raped, assaulted and stoned to death. Setzer anxiously fired back by saying that 98% of women use birth control, as if that were to somehow make up for the lack of attention on the issues that Dr. Gina mentioned. But Dr. Gina got the last word by emphatically stating that “Most women can afford their own $15 a month (for birth control) and their vote is not for sale for $15 a month.”
