As if to prove that they want to give women as many reasons as possible not to vote for them, members of the Republican Strategy Committee explained their latest voter outreach plan last week.
As Congresswoman Renee Ellmers explained, Republicans need to bring complicated policy issues down “to a woman’s level:”
“Men do tend to talk about things on a much higher level,” Ellmers explained. “Many of my male colleagues, when they go to the House floor, you know, they’ve got some pie chart or graph behind them and they’re talking about trillions of dollars and how, you know, the debt is awful and, you know, we all agree with that.
“We need our male colleagues to understand that if you can bring it down to a woman’s level and what everything that she is balancing in her life — that’s the way to go,” she concluded.
Ellmers further suggested that her male colleagues need to show women that they care because, you know, they have mothers, wives, and daughters of their own:
And many of our male colleagues are starting something that I think is very important: Utilizing – especially when we’re talking about the war on women – they are saying, you know ‘I have a wife, I have daughters, I have a mother, I have sisters – if there’s a war on women, I’m losing it.’
Yes Republicans, no need to ask us womenfolk to worry our little heads about all that complicated math and policy stuff. Let’s just sip some coffee, exchange a few recipes, and talk about our kids instead. I’m sure that will solve your “woman” problem.
