LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Democrats silent about real war on women

- The Washington Times - Monday, May 7, 2012

For months now, we have listened to Democrats, from the president down to Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, repeat the lie that presidential contender Mitt Romney and other Republicans are waging a "war on women."

There actually is a war on women - in China. It involves forced abortion, sterilization and, yes, the murders of newborn girls. Not all Chinese support this war, and one of them, a blind man, recently "escaped" into the U.S. Embassy in China. But under the remarkable "leadership" of our woman-loving president and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, the man was ejected from the embassy back into the hands of the Chinese government.

President Obama and all those outspoken Democratic congresswomen are really tough when telling lies about their political opponents, but when facing a really important, substantive issue requiring courage and leadership, they are nowhere to be found. I would have expected more from our president, who cannot tell us often enough how he killed Osama bin Laden.

Concurrently, the highest-ranking military man in Russia publicly stated that Russia would launch a pre-emptive strike to stop the United States from building any anti-missile sites in Europe. How much more proof do we need that foreign governments neither respect nor fear our current government, but rather laugh out loud at its sheer incompetence, lack of leadership and pure naivete?
