"I had dinner with my ex-wife a few weeks ago, and she’s gone from a
down-the-line Republican voter in 2008 to vowing that she’ll never cast a
vote for a GOP candidate again, all due to the contraception brouhaha,
the trans-vaginal ultrasound bills, etc. And she’s (marginally)
pro-life, for God’s sake. I honestly think most of the commenters on this site have no idea the
breadth and depth of the damage that’s been done in only a few months.
Romney absolutely cannot win with the type of gender gaps he’s posting
across the board, and it’s going to damage other candidates down the
ticket. In Washington state, we’ve fielded an outstanding gubernatorial
candidate who’s considered the odds-on favorite to win. But at every
turn, he’s being besieged with questions and confrontations about his
stand on contraception, abortion, etc.....Congratulations, social conservatives, you’ve once again shat the bed with your overzealousness."
