Any good politician knows: The best way to capture those flighty, irrational, emotional female voters is to talk only about issues that directly affect women.
I’m kidding. But it’s the trick these days: If you’re polling poorly among women, as Republican candidate Mitt Romney is, act like you give a shit about women’s issues.
That’s most likely why Romney softened his stance on abortion, telling the Des Moines Register Oct. 9 that he didn’t support any federal legislation that would limit abortions.
Then someone reminded Romney he’s a Republican, and within 24 hours he was back on the anti-woman wagon, promising to defund Planned Parenthood. That’s the Romney we know and love, and won’t recognize by this time tomorrow because he’ll believe something totally different.
