A reporter from Tucker Carlson’s conservative website The Daily Caller said on Wednesday that by fighting for birth control and reproductive rights, Democrats had “reduced the American woman to a sexual being.”

During a segment praising Karl Rove’s American Crossroads super PAC for accusing President Barack Obama of waging a “war on women,” Fox News host Sean Hannity told The Daily Caller’s Michelle Fields that Democrats’ plan to paint Republicans as anti-woman had failed.

“I love this ad!” Fields said of the American Crossroads attack. “Democrats love to run away from numbers and facts which is why they created this ridiculous war on women with contraception.”

“And what they did was they basically reduced the American woman to a sexual being whose sole concern is birth control and cheap abortions,” she added. “That is not the American woman. The real American woman cares about the economy, getting a job, helping her family, which is why this ad will be far more effective than the war on women have.”

Hannity noted that “even the dog in the kennel” on the roof of Mitt Romney’s car had backfired on Democrats because “Barack Obama ate dog meat” in Indonesia as a child, something that Obama revealed in his 2007 book, but The Daily Caller resurrected the story earlier this year to “push back” against the Romney story.

Regardless of Hannity’s claim that the “war on women” had backfired on Democrats, the most recent Quinnipiac University poll found Obama had a massive lead over Romney among unmarried women, 60 percent to 31 percent.
