“I love it that women are upset, too, that women are talking about the economy, I love that,” Mrs. Romney said at a pancake breakfast here. “Women are talking about jobs; women are talking about deficit spending. Thank you, women.”Wow. I mean, just wow. Women are really amazing, you know? Because who would have thought that they would bother to worry their little minds with the economy? It's not like women live and work and (try to) support their families in this lousy economy and have reason to be concerned about what's going on with it, so it must be something special to thank "women" for if they're thinking about the economy at all. Amirite?
Mitt Romney understands why women might be concerned, though:
“You’ve got moms that are driving their kids to school and practice after school and other appointments and wonder how they can afford putting gasoline in the car, at the same time putting food on the table night after night,” he said. “This president doesn’t understand the economy. He’s an economic lightweight, and he’s made decisions that have hurt the American people.”Mitt Romney feels your pain, ladies. And he really hopes you have been too busy thinking about gas prices on your way to pick up the kids from soccer (that being economic struggle as Mitt Romney imagines it) to notice his support for the Blunt amendment or the fact that all he could bring himself to say about Rush Limbaugh's attacks on Sandra Fluke was that "it's not the language I would have used" or that his answer to the deficit is that "we're going to get rid of" Planned Parenthood funding, cancer screenings and all.
So, please. Ladies. Mitt Romney would love it if you would ignore any economic good news you might hear, keep thinking about gas prices, and forget about his desire to give your boss a say in your birth control options.
