Mike Huckabee, Libido, Uncle Sugar & The GOP Women Problem! Video!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"And 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 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, let us take that discussion all across America because women are far more than the Democrats have played them to be."

Mike Huckabee

Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor and Republican presidential candidate, uttered this long and convulted sentence at the Republican National Committee winter meeting.

The former Baptist preacher was attempting to combat the idea that Republicans are waging a "war on women", but he succeeded only in giving the Democrats more ammunition to buttress their allegation.

An evangelical preacher may be able to get away with using the word libido in reference to women, but a potential 2016 presidential candidate sounds creepy using such language.

Hopefully I will be successful in deconstructing Huckabee`s comments without making myself dizzy or my readers confused.

The Fox News talk show host wasn`t claiming that women can`t control their libido; he was making the preposterous claim that this is how Democrats view women.

Huckabee unwittingly revealed how he really feels about females: Women are helpless beings who need men to legislate laws to take away power and control over their own bodies.

Republican candidates would be well-advised never to utter the following words: Libido, rape, abortion, contraception, and Uncle Sugar! Uncle Sugar, Really? Who or what is an Uncle Sugar? A Pimp, Sugar Daddy or Bill Clinton?

Whenever Republicans try to reassure voters that they are women-friendly they come across as creepy misogynist Neanderthals.

Did Huckabee not take that Republican class on How to Talk to Women without Sounding like a Total Dic*?

Huckabee, just try to let these simple facts sink in:

*Women take contraceptives because MEN can`t control their libido!

*Women hate creepiness as much as they hate a condescending and patronizing attitude.

*Women don`t need anyone to fight their battles, so enough with this chivalry bullcrap!
