Senator Kennedy Betrays Women by Not Standing
For Hillary Clinton for President
January 28, 2008

Search Site With

Women have just experienced the ultimate betrayal. Senator Kennedy’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton’s opponent in the Democratic presidential primary campaign has really hit women hard. Women have forgiven Kennedy, stuck up for him, stood by him, hushed the fact that he was late in his support of Title IX, the ERA, and the Family and Medical Leave Act to name a few. Women have buried their anger that his support for the compromises in No Child Left Behind and the Medicare bogus drug benefit brought us the passage of these flawed bills. We have thanked him for his ardent support of many civil rights bills, BUT women are always waiting in the wings.

And now the greatest betrayal! We are repaid with his abandonment! He’s picked the new guy over us. He’s joined the list of progressive white men who can’t or won’t handle the prospect of a woman president who is Hillary Clinton (they will of course say they support a woman president, just not “this” one). “They” are Howard Dean and Jim Dean (Yup! That’s Howard’s brother) who run DFA (that’s the group and list from the Dean campaign that we women helped start and grow). "They" are Alternet, Progressive Democrats of America, democrats.com, Kucinich lovers and all the other groups that take women's money, say they’ll do feminist and women’s rights issues one of these days, and conveniently forget to mention women and children when they talk about poverty or human needs or America’s future.

This latest move by Kennedy, is so telling about the status of and respect for women’s rights, women’s voices, women’s equality, women’s authority and our ability – indeed, our obligation- to promote and earn and deserve and elect, unabashedly, a President that is the first woman after centuries of men who “know what’s best for us.

Statement of NOW President Kim Gandy

January 28, 2008

The National Organization for Women has enormous respect and admiration for Sen. Edward Kennedy (D- Mass.). For decades Sen. Kennedy has been a friend of NOW, and a leader and fighter for women's civil and reproductive rights, and his record shows that.

Though the National Organization for Women Political Action Committee has proudly endorsed Sen. Hillary Clinton for president, we respect Sen. Kennedy's endorsement. We continue to encourage women everywhere to express their opinions and exercise their right to vote.

The only difference between Obama and Hillary is in looks. The politics are the same, both of them will kowtow to NOW if they were to win anyway.

Sounds like a Union tactic to me. Vote for who we say or you aren't one of us. Nice group of cunts that is.

if NOW would look beyond Hillary having tits & a twat, they might see that Obama is the lesser of two evils. Then again, look at how many nig nogs came out to vote for him in South Carolina based only on his skin color. The Democratic race is more about who you are rather than what you can do for this country.

Pathetic

They expected the one guy in the Senate who has a record of killing and sexually assaulting women to actually vote for a candidate just because she's a chick?

NOW isn't making women look very good.

If you think about it, Teddy is supporting Obama because he's black. The Clintons asked him to remain neutral but because they kept injecting race into the issue, Teddy decided to break from them and support the black guy as a result of their campaign.

A murdering alcoholic son of a bootlegging crook, brother of two murdered guys who never did much of anything of note besides get shot. That's the Democrat version of the American dream.

I always enjoyed how the one brother managed to get his 30 knot PT boat run over by a 10 knot Jap cargo ship.

The best brother blew up in his radio controlled bomb before he had his chance. Then came second best, third best, and finally, bottom of the barrel Ted.

That's because the Democrats have shit going for them in terms of sound policy. So if it wasn't for playing the race and gender cards, they might not get any votes at all.
