Enough of this false equivocation BS. Fear-based campaigns are not created equal. The GOP can make up all the tinfoil hat crap they want and their generationally stupid voting blocs will gobble it up. But anyone who runs a thinking man's campaign has plenty of material to run a fear campaign on simply by turning a looking glass to America's political right.
Wow. What a pant load.

Not really.

There's a big difference between, say, calling Romney a greed-head, Wall Street huckster who only cares about rich people and who will screw over the little guy... which is harsh, but sorta true, and...

... calling Obama a Kenyan-born terrorist-loving commie Muslim traitor to America ... which is sorta a huge, whopping lie.

ROMNEY: -or a legislator of a state, I would totally and completely oppose any effort to ban contraception. So you're asking, given the fact that there's no state that wants to do so, and I don't know of any candidate that wants to do so. You're asking: Could it constitutionally be done? We can ask our constitutionlist here.

And thus the War on Wimmins was launched.

Umm... the reason Romney was asked the question in the first place was because other Republicans were arguing that states have a constitutional right to ban contraception. Anyway, the Republican "war on women" included a lot more than just this.

Anyway, your position is a bit unclear. Are you arguing that the Republican Party is not anti-abortion? That it supports federal funding of family planning services, including contraception? That the majority of its members did not vote against the Fair Pay Act of 2009? That several Republican candidates did not make ridiculous and outrageous statements regarding rape during the 2012 campaign?

You seem to think that the "anti-women" and "anti-gay" positions of a great number of Republican politicians is merely a figment of people's imagination or an invention of clever fear-mongering Democrats.
