The usual hand wringing is occurring now about social conservatives causing the GOP to lose.
Todd Akin lost because he swallowed his foot and kept gagging on it, not because he is pro-life.
Richard Mourdock was beaten by a Democrat who ran as a pro-lifer.
As for the so called “war on women,” there is no war on women and women did not abandon Mitt Romney for Barack Obama because of their love of killing kids in the womb.
In fact, if you pull out black female voters, the Democrats and Republicans are tied among women. Are black women voting Democrat because they are women or in a consistent pattern with black voters in general.
Blame social conservatives if you must, but (A) you are lying to yourself and (B) if this is a fight you want to have, I’m happy to see you in the primaries in 2014. I like my chances.
