For the better part of four years, all we have heard out of the Obama administration and the rest of the liberal Democrats is that Republicans are waging a war. They claim it is a war on women, hence the hyperbole over contraception, and a war on minorities. To hear Vice-President Joe Biden tell it, you would think the Republican Party wants to put minorities “back in chains”. I’m here to tell you their claims just are not true, at least not here in Oklahoma.
In 2010, we elected our first female governor in Mary Fallin and by all accounts, she is doing a fine job and her popularity remains high. In our newly elected state legislature, in which the Republican remain in firm control, we have our first black Speaker of the House, TW Shannon. Mr. Shannon was elected by a majority of his fellow legislators. Incidentally, he has also selected Pam Peterson to be his Majority leader, which adds another first to our list of accomplishments. And just in case you are interested, the current number of female governors in the United States stands at six. Four of them are Republicans and two are Democrats.
Isn’t it time we realized just how bogus the war on women and minorities really is? Maybe it’s time for us to go on the offensive and show the rest of the country how the Democrats have fabricated and pushed this lie down the rest of our throats. Maybe it’s time we called them out, and their media lapdogs, for the fabrication that helped give Barack Obama a second term in the White House. Maybe we should start our own offensive, instead of playing defense all the time. Methinks we would be in a much better position to frame the narrative, rather than if we sit around and only respond to the lies being told by the Democrats.
