President or Sugar Daddy?

While I plan to post more thoughts on the election later this week (where I promise to really take off the gloves), I’ll pass along two links as appetizers of sorts.

Both pieces discuss our President’s oddly paternalistic pitch to women.  The first, President in Shining Armor, is by Ross Douthat of the New York Times.  He argues, among other things, that women aren’t as left-leaning on social policies as the Obama administration seems to suppose.  The second, Women Aren’t Dumb, Mr. President, I found at Real Clear Politics.  It provides an even more direct attack on Obama’s campaign pitch to women.

Enjoy.
