I was kinda wondering what the end game is here. Republicans can’t win the election without women, and surely even not-very-political women noticed some of the many attacks on their autonomy.
I think there was a miscalculation, that since the economy has been improving slightly (although we’re not out of the woods yet), they needed a culture war issue to win. But they’ve been going about it rather clumsily and aggressively, probably because they live in an anti-choice bubble.
It’s hard to believe, but Republicans might actually have fumbled worse than Democrats when it came to the politics of an issue.
Oh well. Romney still has 9 more months to change course.
