If Mitt Romney said he was looking for a short person to nominate for his Vice President we would laugh. It seems he hasn’t learned that women will carry the 2012 election, and they will vote based on the issues, rather than the gender, height, color, religion, or favorite ice cream of the candidates. While Romney recognizes he has a low approval rating with female voters, it seems that the mistakes of McCain are being re-lived by Mitt Romney. Ann Romney has recently said Romney is considering a woman. Romney marched with Kelly Ayotte in a 4th of July parade.
Some experts say Romney won’t pick a woman to avoid the “Sarah Palin” problem. Those “experts” and Romney still don’t get it! Within 10 days of the nomination in the 2008 election, Matt Damon made a video and posted it on you tube and said that the pick of Sarah Palin was made for political purposes. He described the selection as a really bad Disney movie.
Over 12 Million people have watched that video, but it appears Romney isn’t one of them. In the last three years the headlines didn’t read that a woman screwed up; it was Sarah Palin who said that we should build dikes to solve the Gulf Oil Spill, that she was the victim of a Blood Libel in Arizona, that we needed to help our North Korean allies, that Paul Revere was warning the British.
Romney hasn’t learned that women want him to pick the most qualified candidate. Even if he doesn’t read “all of them” you’d think he’d seen some of these pictures:
