Romney’s War on Women? Maybe Not.
This morning the Romney Response Team sent out a new ad of women who had worked with Romney.
I was struck by the familiarity of the first woman in the ad, Jane Edmonds. I knew I’d seen her somewhere. Sure enough, she was a speaker attesting to the strengths she had seen in Governor Romney. What was particularly memorable was that she is a Democrat. You can watch her inspirational speech below:
Kerry Healy, Lt. Gov. under Romney wrote the following:
In fact, of the twenty top positions in the Romney administration, ten of them were filled by women, more than any other state in the nation. Romney’s Chief of Staff was a woman – Beth Myers. As we took office, our administration actively sought to recruit the best and brightest women the Commonwealth had to offer. And Governor Romney wasn’t just checking a box. He sought out our counsel, and he listened to our advice. We didn’t always agree, but we were always respected. Mitt Romney didn’t judge the people who were in his administration by their gender. He wanted the best, male or female.
Listening to these educated women who worked along side and respected Mitt Romney makes me think about the war on women. One has to wonder if it is just a contrived tool focusing on a singular issue and hoping that other educated women will not look at all the policies of Mitt Romney.
