Why, oh why, aren't Republicans doing better with women? I mean, they've got guys like this:
He's generous, he "allowed" his wife to get a new dress for the event he was speaking at. He's relatable, making a point of talking to the little ladies.
A video released Thursday by the Pennsylvania Democrats shows Smith, who introduced Ryan at an event last week, greeting two women in the crowd and asking them what they're talking about."Hahahaha! You women and your shoes. See how well I know your concerns?!"
"We're talking about the power of petite women," one of the women says.
"Oh," Smith responds. "My guess would have been you were talking about shoes."
And he also understands the problems of the economy, and can express it in terms everyone can understand.
"Perhaps where we're making our mistake is that we are asking President Obama and Senator Bob Casey to do something they have no knowledge of. They've never been in business, they've never ran [sic] businesses, they don't have that knowledge," Smith said. "It would be like, your wife wrecks your car. You're gonna take it to the beauty salon to get fixed? No.""You women and your bad driving and beauty salons. Aren't you precious!"
Ladies, and gentlemen too, that's your 2012 Republican Party. It's hardly a wonder that they don't think we're capable of making our own decisions about our health care and our bodies. We're too busy wrecking cars and thinking about shoes.
