Note to Romney: You Shouldn't Need an Interpreter to Talk to Women

from Ruth Marcus: http://www.floridatoday.com/article/20120413/OPINION04/304130010/Ruth-Marcus-job-Mitt-can-t-outsource?odyssey=nav|head


Outsourcing the job to his wife isn’t going to solve Mitt Romney’s problem with women voters.

Although that does seem to be the candidate’s first instinct. As when Romney, asked last week about the gender gap, twice said he wished his wife could take the question.

“My wife has the occasion, as you know, to campaign on her own and also with me,” Romney told newspaper editors, “and she reports to me regularly that the issue women care about most is the economy.”

Note to candidate: Women aren’t a foreign country. You don’t need an interpreter to talk to them. Even if you’re not fluent in their language, they might appreciate if you gave it a try.
