Obama's War on Women

One of the underappreciated facts about the Tea Party movement is that women have been in the vanguard.  And they started organizing in the fall of 2008.

We're supposed to believe that all women are Democrats.  But Keli Carender (@LiberTBelle), who started the Tea Party here in the Seattle area, is a graduate of Oxford, a teacher and sometime actor.

Doesn't fit the profile.

And of course many of the Tea Party groups that the IRS was targeting in the run-up to the 2012 election were moms that didn't like what they saw coming out of Washington, DC.

Now we have the case of True the Vote founder Catherine Engelbrecht, profiled on NRO today.  From Houston, Texas, this wife of a small manufacturer got involved also in the fall of 2008.  When she did some election monitoring she decided to do something about it and founded True the Vote.

I have found that election shenanigans seems to touch a sensitive nerve with women.

True the Vote got the attention of the Feds, and even Democratic legislators, and since then they have been regular visitors at the Engelbrecht business: IRS, OSHA, even the ATF!

As we crank up into the current scandal season, there is one thing in the back of my mind.  What was it that triggered these women off in the fall of 2008?

The easy thing would be that they are all racists.  Didn't like the powerful black man getting elected to the White House.

Trouble is: many of these women don't fit the profile.  They are educated, articulate.

So what did set them off?  Was it the Alinsky tactics?  But back in 2008 you had to be really paying attention to get that.  Was it the left-wing agenda?  But Obama kept that under wraps back then.

Well.  Now that we have three, four scandals going full bore, we may get to find out.  I think I'll go to the Seattle Tea Party rally at the IRS tomorrow, just to take a gander.

Because I always think that what women are thinking and feeling is the only thing that matters.

The hand that rocks the cradle.
