cirby: Democrats: "We need this election to be about something we like. Abortion, for example."Everyone else: "Jobs. We need jobs. Not that many people really CARE about abortions, and it's not a big priority for the Republicans right now, either."Democrats: "No - it has to be abortions. We screwed up the jobs thing so bad, and all of our other 'priorities' aren't catching on, so we want all of the reporters to keep asking about abortion. Here - we'll send out Sandra Fluke as a speaker!"Everyone else: "Yeah, you got a massive ten person crowd for Fluke. Not buying it. Jobs, jobs, jobs."Democrats: "Man, that Rmoney sure does dodge the abortion question, doesn't he?"Everyone else: "Because it's not that important, and the legal part of it isn't changing any time soon. Really, ask about jobs."Democrats: "Look, here's a reporter asking the questions we keep bringing up about abortion..."Everyone else: "Are you that freaking stupid?"Democrats: "Um... how about some more bad puns on Romney's name, and a side order of 'he's a rich guy?'"
Pocket Ninja: What Romney understands, subby, and you apparently do not (nor does Obama) is that having jobs teaches women about responsibility. Women who have learned about responsibility do not become accidentally pregnant. Women who do not become accidentally pregnant, in turn, do not require abortions. Therefore, supporting full employment for women in fact renders the entire abortion question moot. It's no wonder that Obama wants to continue making such noise about it.
