As I said, I'm not trying to sway anyone. I don't work on a campaign. If I did, I would be much my commentary.

So it's a cop out to call swing voters "stupid" in years when a Republican is possibly going to win - but somehow those voters weren't stupid 4 years ago when they voted for the party you support.

It's not a Republican. It's Romney/Ryan. I have voted for Republicans in the past. I might even in the future if they ever return to some semblance of sanity. That this particular choice is so obviously cut and dried is about THIS choice.

R&R support policies that are detrimental to women, and also to older people. So your contention that 55+ age women are somehow different makes no sense, as they are in the cross-hairs by virtue of being "older people" (menopause not withstanding). You even gave an example in another post of one such older woman (who clearly is paying some attention) concerned about R&R on Medicare and Social Security.

Looked at from pure selfishness, it's stupid (yes, STUPID) to vote for R&R if you have functioning ovaries or are older/approaching retirement. Looked at from the more compassionate/empathetic standpoint mentioned by several others, the choice is still obvious (because they are concerned about the well-being of those with functioning ovaries and/or approaching retirement).
