President Obama got a lot of help from women voters in 2008 he won 56% of the female vote compared to John McCain's 43%.
And many of those women former Hillary Clinton supporters but he may be losing those same supporters in 2012.
On our panel this morning is to move Green former advisor to Hillary Clinton and Fox News contributor.
Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild CEO of EL Rothschild she was a supporter of Hillary Clinton then became a McCain supporter in the election.
And Sam Bennett president and CEO of the women's campaign forum welcome to all of you look at what you Hillary Clinton supporters.
So I -- it's no surprise that you.
Never really were crazy about Barack Obama but you -- -- now you're feeling what disenchanted -- -- -- start with you you're you're not happy with how he's treated women in the past two years.
Its -- -- not correct tense moment he heeded the pay equity act right out of the box.
And he updated the status of women that reported first time in thirty years and bottom line at the far right -- have it.
Hurled such horrible legislation that women I think the choice is very clear for women in the election season.
It's either Obama are awful mess and I don't think they're gonna go anywhere near either Republican candidate OK so you are pleased with some of the progress -- made -- how are you feeling about how women have been treated over the past two years.
I feel that the Democratic Party has no moral authority with women after what they did to Hillary.
I mean it they threw Hillary Clinton under the bus and no matter what they say that's what they did.
From Nancy Pelosi to.
Bob Claire McCaskill to everybody that you're under the bus so there's no moral authority in the Democratic Party as far as I'm concerned for women.
But I don't think the election is going to be about the gender issue this time it's gonna be about the economy.
And Barack Obama's handling of the economy has been very bad for for working people it's been very.
And -- -- for an -- harder for women I think that's going to be the issue.
-- the economy and what has he done for jobs it's a pretty horrible thing.
To have sixteen million people I'm employed 25 million people under employed.
That's a terrible place to be and that is because.
There's not enough economic growth -- -- that that the state.
Ownership of their car and I've been very bad I can't I can't I'm sorry guys -- with -- -- respect and really love you but.
And I can't let that come with.
If we -- on the economic stimulus -- that he did we'd be in the Great Depression right now not the Great Recession.
And this is a horrible worldwide situation -- what you don't have -- -- and you.
The greatness of the greatness that's -- -- you look at -- your.
No but I'll let you guys are gonna -- I didn't -- it.
I don't know like the vast majority -- former Hillary supporters that.
You know went to Obama after the primary and will continue to be with Obama.
Through the 2012 election.
I think it really boils down to.
Looking back at the debate we saw a few days ago thank -- where they didn't even mention that the middle class the term wasn't even on the table.
And yes the economy is -- the economy is absolutely going to be -- issue.
And the working women look at the presidential candidates on the Republican side and see them not even talking about the middle class that's going to be problematic for them.
I I do think the Obama administration is going to have to address.
What some have been calling the war on women in -- the past year as when it comes to reproductive rights yet the Ledbetter act was the first bill he passed.
But we still don't have paycheck fairness that failed.
We just -- the Wal-Mart -- you know get you know.
But besides -- Yeah I thought I.
Yeah feeling attacked Obama's been -- chestnut had kept them in Houston and by.
Women by the far right unmitigated unrelenting on the state level federal level there is no choice you pick Obama or off illness and you know -- women's.
So all know what I'm sorry hair and Renault and it's still not -- -- -- and then awful it is supplements a little rent the absolutely came to say it is Obama or off -- the women at what is really awful that is just not true and if you want -- the cup.
Yeah sure authentic about her wedding and yeah.
So your thought that is ridiculous first double.
First of all to divide the way the -- -- you want to divide.
And you wanna take women and put a little noose around their neck and he might not know what did.
Since its holding I don't really.
I'll invite comments from our viewers you.
I find it -- we've got to go and that it will continue it is up into the election thanks so.
