MSNBC Analyst: I'm 'Hurt' All Those Women Voted for Santorum

"I’m wondering if those women really heard the full message"

During MSNBC's primary coverage on Tuesday night, one analyst made her feelings on Rick Santorum very clear. In fact, she admitted that exit polls showing working Republican women had voted in droves for Santorum "hurt" her.

"This woman vote really hurts me," Karen Finney said. "I got to say. You heard me say that."

Host Lawrence O'Donnell then noted 49 percent of working Republican women had voted for Santorum.

“That’s why I say, it’s a little painful because I’m wondering if those women really heard the full message that, yes, there’s the economy, " Finney added, “but if you’ve got to worry about your basic healthcare, how are you then going to be able to do what you need to do in terms of having a job, paying your rent, taking care of your kids?"

Here's the clip via Newsbusters:

Noel Sheppard has a response for Finney:

The reality is that not everyone in America thinks health insurance is the most important thing in life. Maybe this is why millions of Americans choose not to buy it, and are disgusted by political leaders telling them they have to.

Such folks also might be displeased by government forcing religious institutions to cover women's healthcare medications even if it goes against their beliefs.

UPDATE:

While MSNBC only introduces Finney as a "political analyst," a quick look at her bio reveals she's a Democratic political all-star. She's worked for the DNC, Hillary Clinton, and Elizabeth Edwards in the past. Currently, she serves on the board of NARAL pro-choice America, a large pro-abortion organization.
