Women, who four years ago overwhelmingly supported candidate Obama based on his promise of a robust economic recovery and a new tone in Washington, are feeling a bit cheated.
For the first time this year President Obama is going through a rough patch with women, leaving him upside down on favorability rankings, with a majority (50%) of women voters, single and married alike, viewing him unfavorable while only 46% find him favorably.
Despite his dubious efforts to win women over, his policies have resulted in the real war on women: chronic unemployment, rising cost of living and a less-than thrilling economic recovery.
Said IWV President, Heather Higgins: “We’re just reflecting what we are hearing over and over. The “change” all went the wrong way. The “hope” has turned to disappointment. It’s like a boyfriend that didn’t work out. You invest so much in them, you think they’re perfect. And they’re not.”
Melissa: I was so excited at first
Mary: I know
Melissa: He seemed so perfect
Mary: They always do
Melissa: And I could listen to him talk for hours
Mary: Did he ever do more than talk?
Melissa: I wanted to believe him.. I trusted him
Mary: Melissa.. we all did
Melissa: I’m tired of waiting for him to get his act together. It’s been almost four years
Mary: You can’t change him
Melissa: He always has an excuse for everything.. there’s always somebody else to blame
Mary: You can’t live on excuses
Melissa: Why do I always fall for guys like this?
Mary: You know you deserve better
