The main goal for Republicans at this week's RNC was to woo the women, and man did they do it. Mission accomplished! There were soooo many women who attended and spoke at the event. Democrats may whine that giving so many speaking slots to women and minorities smacks of "tokenism," but Republicans know the DNC are the ones with loosest slots in town (pssst: Sandra Fluke). So cross your legs and sit up straight, ladyvoters, because here's proof that Mitt Romney is gonna close that gap…
The recent blowup in the Missouri Senate race, in which Republican candidate Todd Akin asserted that women rarely get pregnant in cases of "legitimate rape," hardly helped the GOP’s image.
Oh darn. Sorry. I must have copied the wrong quote. Here we go…
Ms. Brickley, like just about everyone else, brings up Romney’s not-so-secret weapon: Ann. "She was sincere and spoke from the heart," Brickley says, noting her emphasis on love.
When New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie came out and said, "Tonight, we choose respect over love," Brickley says, "that disturbed me a bit."
Knucklesnorts! I don't know why this keeps happening. I'm just trying to find a story that states definitively that Romney has won over the hearts, minds and uteri of women everywhere, regardless of their previous political affiliation. Wait. Here…
Wasserman Schultz dismissed the female speakers this week as in it for themselves, rather than genuinely supporting Mitt Romney.
"I think they spent the week in infomercials for their candidates for 2016," she said. "I mean I think the thing that I noticed the most about Tuesday and Wednesday night, was the parade of future leaders of their party who spent a tremendous amount of time promoting themselves, and took a very long time, if they ever did get to promoting their candidate, Mitt Romney."
Come on now, that's way harsh. Romney has done everything he can to try to make women understand how much he appreciates and respects them. He's been trying to relate to women's rights ever since he's gotten into this election, especially a woman's right to change her mind. Am I right? Hey-o!
