National Federation of Republican Women Disgusted
by Obama's Silence at News Conference

President Refuses to Denounce Liberal Insults Against Republican Women

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Rae Lynne Chornenky, President of the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW), issued the following statement following President Obama's Tuesday news conference in which he ignored questions regarding insults made against Republican women.

“The hypocrisy displayed by President Barack Obama and liberal Democrats when Republican women are the targets of vicious attacks is shameful,” Chornenky said. “Yesterday, President Obama dodged questions from USA Today and the Daily Caller, flatly refusing to denounce or even criticize his liberal supporters for making vile remarks about Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann and other prominent Republican women. What hypocrisy! And, what about the mainstream media? Where are the media when liberals utter demeaning, derogatory remarks about Republican women? Nowhere to be found. This liberal hypocrisy and media double standard must end.”

Founded in 1938, the NFRW has thousands of active members in local clubs across the nation and in several U.S. territories, making it one of the largest women’s political organizations in the country. The grassroots organization works to promote the principles and objectives of the Republican Party, elect Republican candidates, inform the public through political education and activity, and increase the effectiveness of women in the cause of good government.
