I'm really flabbergasted by these guys...I have no idea why...I should expect this. I'm a Christian and KNOW that they're living in another century. They are so afraid of women having any power. Women being the primary breadwinners also gives women even MORE of an influence on the economy. Some extremely uppity women even own their own successful businesses, WITH marriage and children. How dare they do anything to strengthen the economy...and then turn around and vote, in overwhelming numbers, for *that* man.

And right there, is the real reasoning behind it. Women are slowly taking the power to make all the decisions away from that grand ole party and they are terrified. They're vile, but it's fun to watch them running scared and sinking deeper into lunacy because they have no other way to turn back the tide.

These men are also speaking from the viewpoint of people immersed in the traditional male-superior culture. They have an investment in the status quo and are unwilling - even frightened - of relinquishing their position.

But ultimately it's not up to them. They can preach to their Fox choir all they want, but "the times they are a changin' ". Inexorably.

The issue is not one of science but of reading comprehension. They might try and read the actual report:
Breadwinner Moms | Pew Social & Demographic Trends

Of the 40% of households where the woman is the sole provider, 63% are single mothers. They were not even able to read all the way to the second paragraph. If they are really all that concerned about the role of women they need to be taking a look at why the men are not even in the house caring for their kids in any way. (See the third paragraph for the distressing part.)

These statistics reveal a problem, but the idea that these people focused on a completely different issue is quite telling. The Fox news hosts are not even trying to pretend to be topical and are going straight to what they think their ageing, angry, male demographic wants to hear to keep them from clicking the "change channel" button on their remotes while bellowing for another beer.

Also, to Juan Williams - I used to listen to and respect your viewpoint when you were on NPR. It would seem we have discovered what your price is .

I think they mentioned in the Young Turks video that the median age of FOX News viewers is 70! Their demographic is shrinking fast, they really have nowhere left to run.

The 111th Congress, which took office in 2009, was the oldest in U.S. history, with an average age of 57 in the House and 63 in the Senate. (The sitting 112th Congress is only slightly younger.) --source

Watch out - every time women come to power or at very least equality, historically, men have found a way to take it from them.

Look to the temples in Greece and to the witch trials in Europe in the late medieval period to the salem witch trials.

In every case the women were accused of being the source of whatever unlucky circumstance plagued the community (famine, fire, illness, food spoilage). Men who wanted power for themselves were able to convince both men and other women that when in power women became something "unnatural".

Never forget it because it has happened over and over and over again.

If we were to live through some kind of apocalyptyc happening, I would hate to be a woman. Think of the most recent wars in Europe (Balkan War, etc).

Sometimes I think we are only safe until the next catastrophy.

Is that too doomsy on my part?

Why does Erick Erickson always look as if he's trying to shit out a Grand piano? His face doesn't move. Just his mouth moves, and he's always squinting. That boy looks just like a hog.

And yet he still looks vastly less smug than he comes across in words.

Jesus H. Christ on a jumped up pogo stick, what an absolutely vile pair of individuals. The first video was bad enough, but their behaviour in that second, with that "aww she's so mad, let's placate the liddle woman" tone running behind the rest of their bullshit. That's just made me feel physically ill.

You know, the same misogynistic dumbasses who claim nature clearly has made males dominant are the first to claim homosexuality is unnatural, even though it occurs in thousands of species of animals.

Very true. Pretty much the same way that many of the same people pick and choose Bible verses that support their views, and ignore those that contradict their views.
