The Democrat Party has the exclusive concern for the well-being and best interest of minorities, therefore any minority who does not vote Democrat is voting against themselves.
Just ask any prominent Democrat.
Michelle Obama has become the latest to accuse those who did not vote for the candidate of her party of committing self-flagellation.
As cited by Boston.com:
“Any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice,” Obama told the audience during a question-and-answer session with author Roxane Gay at Inbound, a marketing conference that has attracted an assortment of famous speakers this week.
Mrs. Obama is not quoted with an explanation of why so many women (42% of all women and a still somewhat surprising 53% of white women) ‘voted against their own voice’.
Perhaps the reason is that, as Hillary Clinton suggested, their boyfriends and husbands told them to do so.
Or perhaps so many did not vote for a Democratic presidential candidate – even a female one – because they decided on their own volition that Democratic policies were failing them.
If that was the reason, then according to economic policy analyst Stephen Moore, their belief was well-founded.
Working women have gotten crushed under the weight of Obama policies. During Barack Obama’s six-and-a-half years in office, women have suffered steeper declines in take-home pay than men have. Women have also experienced sharper declines in employment and a faster rise in poverty. The financial squeeze has been especially severe for single women.
Mr. Moore also adds:
Since President Obama took office in 2009, median inflation-adjusted income for women has fallen by nearly 4 cents on the dollar, according to Census data, versus slight gains for men.
On Obama’s watch, an additional 2 million women have slipped into poverty. Wait a minute — this is supposed to be an economic recovery. The poverty rate among women is now 16.1 percent — the highest level in 20 years.
Perhaps then it is a woman’s “own voice” to vote against their economic self-interest by voting for a candidate who largely promised to continue the policies that have been so harmful to women.
If that’s the logic employed by the former first lady, it’s no wonder the current commander in chief is a Republican.
