Women will not elect someone who thinks this way to the highest office in the land, no matter how much you want to dismiss their concerns or claim that the president doesn't have the power to ban birth control and that he wouldn't even if he could, although he thinks it is "not okay".
Women also will not support a party in which this fool is one of the two front runners, and the other one is being forced into a "more-morally-upstanding-slash-patriarchal-and-oppressive-than-thou" competition with him.
Rick Santorum is not going to be the candidate. Romney is. Santorum is expressing his personal belief, which he is entitled to. That is not the Republican platform and is not even close to it.
Listen to some of Romney's press conferences. He feels the same exact way I do and expressed in my last post to you. Romney is a moderate and that will become very apparent when he and Obama get into the debates scheduled for this summer. Rather than take freedoms away from women, we want to increase them by eliminating government control of our personal lives.
Democrats have a tendency to forget that most Republicans have been married for a long period of time. Their wives have spent many years training them and would never allow them to pick on other women.
When they discover the center of the universe, a lot of people are going to be disappointed they are not it.
"As democracy is perfected, the office of President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron."
