Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, January 24, 2014

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee (R) said Thursday that Republicans need to take a more combative attitude toward winning the votes of women, by emphasizing that women aren't weaklings in need of help from the government. "If the Democrats want to insult the women of America by making them believe that they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing them for them a prescription each month for birth control because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government, then so be it," Huckabee said. "Let's take that discussion all across America."

Huckster just implied that the women we all know are uncontrollable -----.

That's infuriating to say the least.
20 bucks says the very same people who prattle on about "feminized" American men won't blink an eye or voice any defense
They are so obedient (aka wuss's) that not only will they excuse this insult, they will defend it over defending their own aunts, sisters, mothers and daughters

Some of the more cynical REpublicans say stuff like that but secretly don't really believe what they are saying, Huckabee, IMHO, actually does. I find myself disliking him far less than the more cynical variety but I would be seriously afraid were he ever to manage to be elected President.

Of course, Huckabee is correct----the women supporting the demonrats are no different then the men supporting them. They can't take care of their own needs and want freebies as much as possible. It's just as ludicrous to pay for contraceptives to prevent pregnancy as it is to pay for male "stiffy" prescriptions. Many Americans have become dependent on government teats to the point that it's another symptom of our decline---and I'm not just speaking about the poor either.

Mats, your rhetoric is getting worse. You used to have the ability to offer actual logic and critiques. Plenty of people who support the democrats are fully employed, personally responsible humans. And plenty of those who support the GOP are not.

YEt I seem to be doing fine, never needed welfare or food stamps not that there would be anything wrong with it if I had. Unlike you though, I actually care about the single moms and their kids struggling right now while you pontificate about all sorts of nonsense, meanwhile those kids would be hungry without those food stamps. YOu type of moral superiority is hollow, morality must begin with making sure we feed all of the children. A nation that does not do so is an immoral and a failing nation.

Making love has consequences, too. They are similar but cost the rest of us less.

Mike Tomasky has an essay this morning on the Huckster's open-mouth-insert-fooot comments ("Why Women Do Not Love Mike Huckabee" at www.thedailybeast.com).

Here we go again. What galaxy do these right-wing men live in? So now contraception is like welfare? I'm reading him right, right? This is what he said -- in essence, that birth control, provided by people who think women can't control their libidos, makes women "helpless." It's the culture of dependency again, but this time transferred from the ghetto to the uterus. The Democrats, I guess, want women to go out and have unrestrained sex, so Democrats can then go out and destroy America by distributing these sinful contraceptive devices. So women, you see, are not human beings with agency and volition about their sexuality in Huckabee Land. They're nothing more than the cat's paws of the godless, baby-killing Democrats, who want to keep them on the Democratic plantation. The Pill, the welfare check, the Earned Income Tax Credit -- all the work of Satan, propagated by the party of Satan.

As with Todd Akin and other recent Republican men who've been such marvelous spokesmen for the female side, it's just hard to believe that this offensive gibberish even came out of his mouth. And not in an interview, as was the case with Akin, who was caught off-guard, but in a prepared speech! How do these men come to these views?

#13 | Posted by Doc_Sarvis at 2014-01-24 06:26 AM | Reply | Flag: | Newsworthy 1

"The thing about Huckabee is that he used to hide this very well," observes Tomasky. "I'd imagine that deep down, he's as Old Testament fire-and-brimstone as they come -- a biblical literalist, right down to Jonah living in the whale's stomach, the whole schmear. But he managed not to come across that way. He cracked jokes. He liked reporters (a media-friendly conservative!). He played rock 'n'roll bass guitar, for gosh sakes. If he was a mullah, he was at least a good-natured one who didn't seem threatening."

But after this speech, forget that. He's just a mullah now. He's mad at birth control, which virtually every woman uses and which has been legal in this country for 54 years! And there was no small dose of acid in his voice as he spit out the infamous sentences, and he looked mad. Now, he's going to be lumped in with Akin and cited, and very rightly so, as Exhibit B (Akin is still A) in why the Republicans would just be better off not talking about women at all and living with a 12- to 14-point gender gap, because every time one of them opens his mouth it just increases....

These people live in a morally simplistic fantasy land that's impervious to facts and to the very real complexities of life. And he's reportedly thinking of seeking the GOP nomination again? Come to think of it, he'd be perfect.

No, I said that a nation that allows children to go hungry is immoral, many women work hard all day long but just don't earn enough money, in this corporately controlled work environment where collective bargaining is punished by firing because of anti union fools such as Kersh. There would be no need for food stamps for working people in a moral nation.

His wife is probably already doing that. Maybe that's why he's so angry at women.

When, in actuality, it's about a discussion of what coverage is included in what is paid for by premiums. It's a "terms of the contract" issue. There's nothing FREE in it, it's just an included benefit.

More than a few of the confused, angry white males upon whom the GOP appears to grow increasingly dependent give me the impression they don't regard women as a different gender within the same species but, instead, as members of an entirely different species.

That would, of course, comport well with their understanding of and respect for science in general.

Nine years ago, Huckabee thought that the government should ensure that everyone had access to contraception.

Before Republican talk show host Mike Huckabee considered President Barack Obama's contraception coverage mandate an insult to women, he had signed a very similar mandate into law while serving as governor of Arkansas.

Pfft! which time?

Mike Huckabee, when he was Arkansas governor apparently signed a health insurance mandate law in 2005 that included contraception in preventive care.
He was among many Republicans in many states who did the same.

Four years later, the Arkansas law easily cleared that state's Legislature, with help from Republican lawmakers, including two GOP cosponsors. Huckabee signed it in April 2005.

He defended the law in a statement. "Religious employers are not required to comply with this policy," he said. "My position is, and always has been, that religious entities shouldn't be forced to pay for contraception."

But like the original federal regulation proposed by Obama, the Arkansas law did not exempt church-affiliated hospitals and universities. It exempts only "religious employers" that are nonprofit organizations whose primary mission is "the inculcation of religious values," and primarily employ people who share the same religion, a standard few Catholic hospitals meet.

Okay, does no one else find the term "Uncle Sugar" a bit offensive? Kinda like Uncle Sam's Pimp Brother.

Anyway, Huckabee is just a politician trying to spin the facts into something he thinks women of today will find palatable. Yet, he actually insults women in his attempt to appease them.

Kind of like telling black people they are too lazy and dumb to get off the democratic plantation.

Insulting and bullying people seems to be the only tactic Republicans have left in their bag of tricks.

I'm sure Huckabee believed every word he said. There's something about these bible thumpers that they can't stop themselves from pushing their archaic views of sex and women when they get in front of a captive audience.

The world of women has passed them by and they don't seem to know it. I suppose we should feel sorry for him but it's really hard to excuse stubborn ignorance.

I know he's trying to do a switcheroo by trying to convince the female demographic that the Democrats are making them slaves to government dependency and their only road to freedom is to vote Republican but attacking their libido isn't going to do the trick. I don't think any politician ever won a popularity contest by implying that over half of the voting public are whores and sluts with overactive libidos.

He could have and should have articulated that point more carefully and thoroughly. Having said that, the left is assigning a position to him that he clearly hasn't taken.

Not even close.

What he's saying is that the Dems are condascending toward women because they believe (according to Huckabee) that women can't control their own libido and thus need big government to force insurance companies to provide them 'free' contraception.

He's describing the Democrat's views, not his own.

His comments are being taken in the context created by loons trying to get constitutional amendments passed that outlaw birth control and challenges to insurance providing birth control.

Here's a hint: If you're a fundie GOPper don't talk about birth control. Don't talk about rape. It never works out.

That's what Reince Priebus, Chairman of the Republican National Committee said, in his own words, of course. He implied that the Republicans didn't need another hole to dig themselves out of at this crucial time when they're trying to reinvent their image.

He didn't mention that their new image would collapse like an invisibility cloak one minute after inauguration should one of them make it that far.

Huckabee is an idiot.

really? what information do you have to reach this conclusion because if the post article or comments from dana bash or the WH reporter asking the question of carney...your conclusion is based on LIES and distortions of his statements...but then that's pretty much par on this course.

yes, he assigned a position to democrats. Hypocritical and childish, really....but he didn't tell women to control their libido.

I don't have a problem with what he said, except for that he's a hypocrite on the subject, as he once supported what he now condemns.

#47 | Posted by eberly at 2014-01-24 05

seriously...please explain to me how he's a hypocrite...OR I guess please tell me what you know about what he has supported in the past...I am unaware that he ever supported tax payers being FORCED and COERCED into paying for women's birth control.

"SO why does a woman need the federal government to pay of her birth control?"

You act as if insurance policies don't commonly cover birth control.

"If the Democrats want to insult the women of America by making them believe that they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing them for them a prescription each month for birth control because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government, then so be it," Huckabee said. "Let's take that discussion all across America."

This may be the most back asswards thing I've ever read.

He makes it sound as if the government is giving out BC pills and mandating them be taken...when in actuality they're mandating that insurance policies cover their cost like other prescriptions.

He's either being intentionally dishonest or hilariously stupid.

no thanks....I'll get my own information cushfoot..

since posting that post I have received information from 'tea party patriot's' that told me what I needed to know. Yes he did support that as governor according to them and I"ll believe them many times over before anything from radical left wing extremists...

as to the recent comments, there is LITTLE even on this thread that is the truth about his comments but then I know that because I just listened to him on his show AND at the rnc meeting rather than depend on lying dog ********* democrats anywhere anytime.

most everything from this article and ALL of tweets from dana dash of CNN as well as the question from the obama kisser to jay carney were distortions of what I JUST took the time to actually LISTEN to him say....

AS I SAID>...tea party patriots just put out the info about what he did as gov....

but I"m sure radical extremists here will somehow combine the two in order to keep up the heat.....ironically there is more heat on him from tea party than you radical extremists....funny huh ?

My point on this is that I've been consistent, unlike apparently the ex gov....I SHOULD NOT have to pay more on my personal health care for some bimbo to get birth control...I would say 'free' but it's free to her...WE HAVE to pay for it...

Of course you will.

And, as always with you, criteria number 1 will be:

Does. It. Agree. With. Me.

Oh please.

Only a narcissist would think this appreciably increased their premiums.

BTW don't the tax payers pay for your health care (insurance or via retirement) anyway?

yes I make no bones that when I agree with something I ...uh...agree with it....????

again, I don't believe liberals or even people who call themselves moderate until I look further which in this case I have myself as well as receive the info from I trust much more than virtually ANYONE here...

you have no clue about my retirement and it's none of your business anyway but NO they do not....

it doesn't matter if it's a penny...it is NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY to provide free ANYTHING to others..PERIOD....

not even a fox personality is immune to the rath of American Citizens involved in freeing this once great constitutional republic from it's destruction from the radical extreme leftist president and his minions..

GOV...you're either with us or against us...

OK. Since apparently I was foolish enough to give your intelligence the benefit of the doubt, I'll spell it out for you.

Your number one criteria for whether information is true is whether or not the information tells you what you think you already know.

In other words, you look for confirmation, not information.

BTW Tea Party "Patriots" are loons. The fact that they're supported by the likes of Hannity and Mark Levin leave that FACT undeniable.

it doesn't matter if it's a penny...

Funny you should mention it because it's likely a fraction of a penny.

But it's not really about the BC pills is it? Still nursing all those grudges against all those librarians who turned you down while you hogged the socialist library computer?

"I read is as dems are telling women they are helpless and can't control anything, including their libido. Insert Uncle Sam at that point."

Letting Uncle Sam insert would be worse than failing to control one's libido. It would be masochism and self-loathing.

Oh God. Please tell me your childhood church wasn't run by a priest who called himself "Uncle Sam"...
