Mitt Romney
Mitt Romney loves women, dammit! (Darren Hauck/Reuters)
Facing a gender gap as wide as the Grand Canyon, Mitt Romney and Republican strategists think it's time to kick his women wooing into high gear ... and they have five strategies to do it:
He says Augusta National Golf Club should admit women
Well, I'm sold. When I win the lottery and my dream of joining the most exclusive country club in America is within reach, I'll remember this day.
He's relying heavily on his wife
Because his wife talks to women and she knows, women are worried about the economy ... which means the cost of driving kids to soccer practice.
He's skewing Obama's record

This is also known as lying about Obama's record.

He's focusing on pocketbook issues
See soccer practice.
If all else fails, he could always choose a female running mate
Yes, go rogue! Who can forget how women abandoned the Democratic Party in droves after Sarah Palin was added to the ticket in 2008?

In other words, Mitt Romney's strategy to close that gaping chasm of a gender gap is to slap a bandaid on it and hope that women forget that he's on the wrong side of every issue that affects their day-to-day lives.

Good luck with that.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
