Sarah Jessica Parker Hits Home State For Obama

Sarah Jessica Parker hasn’t kept it a secret that she is a fan of President Obama’s; in June, she held a fundraiser for his campaign at her home and starred in an ad talking him up which aired on MTV. In her latest effort to spread the word about Obama to her fellow female voters, she hit up her home state of Ohio recently along with actress Alfre Woodward and Democratic strategist Valerie Jarrett.

“The things that I feel are most important to women and to children, the things that have made an enormous difference these past four years, and the possibility for even more important, vital and necessary change, is going to come from the Obama administration,” she said.

Indeed, Obama has been enormously popular among women voters this time around because of his stance on healthcare–including birth control–and the fact that he believes the government shouldn’t have a say in what women do with their own bodies. Winning the key state of Ohio could mean winning the election, as both parties are fully aware, and with celebrity endorsements on his side, Obama’s approval rating in the state could be just the boost he needs.

Valerie Jarrett, who is chair of the White House Council of Women and Girls, says the election is particularly important for females this year.

“If you think about the president and what he’s fought for his entire life, it’s really all about equality, and opportunity — building a middle class that’s meant to last, and women are an important part of that,” she said.

    Thank you SJP! When people like Ann Coulter and Donald Trump get national headlines for slamming our President, I am thrilled to see you and other nationally known figures getting out to support him.

    As a woman, it’s really hard for me to understand voting Republican in this day and age.

      When 17 million more families are on food stamps and the majority of those being women who are not working how is that advancing women? It is oppressive when a woman cannot support her family. We have an epidemic of women and children in poverty and it is not because equal pay issues, birth control or the arts…it is because there are no jobs and small businesses are not able to creat opportunities for advancement. Healthcare run by the national government is exactly what democratic women say they do not want – government making their decisions. However,that is exactly what is happening. Goverment is deciding what type of coverage we receive, as it becomes more expensive care will be reduced and eventually women’s issues will be hit. We already pay more in premiums than men. It will only become worse with goverment health care. Social welfare makes people reliant on their goverment…jobs make people self-reliant, motivated and proud. Obama has not craeted that. He has perpetuated a society that “needs” the government. We should not NEED our goverment, it should be there to create sturcture and guidelines and support. We have always had a society of upper, middle and lower economic classes but with the Obama administration we now have an government dependent economic group. Obama may be charasmatic and have a gift for speech but he has not delivered. I would rather hear less and see more.

    Hollywood nuts & sluts for Obama! LOL If these show-biz dimwits are serious about “spreading the wealth around,” they’d urge Obama to propose a hefty surtax, say 75%, on all entertainment contracts. (Let’s see Obama’s pro sports kool-aid drinkers do the same regarding all sports contracts.)

    Who cares what Sarah Jessica Parker thinks! Obama is only interested in Hollywood and being on TV. Romney can save the country…wake up America! Obama and Biden give less than 1% to charities, so he may want to talk to Trump. Obama’s not interested in helping the poor just uses them to get elected.
