JOHN KERRY PROMISES to engage in sex discrimination: “As president, I will put American government and our legal system back on the side of women.”
Is the legal system supposed to take sides based on gender?
UPDATE: Reader Nicole Griffin is unimpressed by this appeal:
Regarding the section of Kerry’s website you linked to, all I have to say is “huh?” Putting aside the issue of whether the government SHOULD take sides between the genders, the full quote from Kerry is:
“In case after case, President Bush’s actions have made American women less safe and less secure – on the job and on the streets. As president, I will put American government and our legal system back on the side of women. I will stand up for their security, ensure their safety, support their rights, and guarantee their dignity. This nation can do no less.”
Maybe I missed something, but what the hell does Kerry think that Bush has done to make women less safe and secure? I can’t name a single thing that he has done that has had an effect on women in particular that it has not had on all Americans. Furthermore, as an American woman, I personally feel much “safer and more secure” with Bush as president, knowing that he’s willing to go out and kill terrorists and evil dictators who hate America than I would with Kerry as president, whose solution would be to threaten them with a UN resolution.
ANOTHER UPDATE: Reader Elizabeth King agrees:
Sign me up as another woman who feels much safer and more secure with President Bush in the White House than I would if John Kerry became Commander in Chief. My man Bush is taking it to the enemy. Kerry thinks that the enemy is us.
But not if we’re properly restrained by the UN!
