Description

MENDENHALL, Pa.--Mitt Romney, the all but certain Republican presidential nominee now that Rick Santorum is out, is trying to reframe the battle for female voters by accusing the Obama administration of waging "the real war on women" by its failure to jump-start the economy. "During the Obama years, women have suffered," Romney told a crowd Tuesday in this town just outside Philadelphia. "This president did not cause the recession; he just made it worse and made it longer. And it's been harder for the recovery to occur. And, as a result, women have suffered." He added: "The brunt of the burden of job losses during the Obama years have been suffered by women." Romney said that 92.3 percent of the jobs lost during Obama's years as president were women's jobs, a figure that has been rated "mostly false" by the fact-checking website Politifact for failing to take into consideration the full picture of unemployment during the recession.
