Peggy Noonan On Romney, The GOP And Women

Peggy Noonan has a great column in the Wall Street Journal touching on the so-called "war on woman."
Here's an excerpt:
Mr. Romney has a woman problem? "Romney was saved by women, and they buried Newt," notes former George H.W. Bush aide Lloyd Green, who studies voting tables. After Mr. Gingrich won his blowout in South Carolina, women went for Mr. Romney in Florida by 24 points. He won men by only five. In Ohio, women voted 40% for Romney to 37% for Mr. Santorum, who won men by one point. In Michigan, Romney won women again. "Personal probity matters in the GOP," said Green. "Newt and Herman Cain are Exhibits 1 and 2."
What is the biggest gift Romney has been given this year by the Democratic party? Hilary Rosen's ill thought, ill-spoken, snotty remark that Ann Romney "never worked a day in her life."
Ann Romney raised five children with a husband who sometimes traveled. A mother of five will be suffering from exhaustion, not laziness, and certainly not a lack of engagement in the realities and stresses of life. Where do the Democrats get these spokesmen who are so unsympathetic, so narrow in their vision and understanding of women's lives? What are they launching, a war on women?
