The Women In This MoveOn.Org Ad Are Really Angry At Romney
10:15 am, May 15th | by Laura Donovan
It’s not groundbreaking that presidential contender Mitt Romney isn’t wildly popular among women. But the women in a new MoveOn.org ad take their issues with the former Massachusetts governor to another level.
The video, which features multiple females voicing their opinion on the candidate, starts with one of them saying, “Congratulations, Mitt Romney — you’re the presumed GOP nominee.” Other women pop up on screen with displeased expressions and say:
“[You threatened] to let our employers take away our contraception coverage, threaten to let our insurance companies charge us more, just because we’re women, and threaten to get rid of Planned Parenthood, a life-saving source of healthcare for millions of women. So this November, we’re gonna remember how you threw women under the bus, just to get the nomination.”
Zing! Here’s the thing, though. He didn’t exactly have to “[throw] women under the bus just to get the nomination,” as he pretty much had the spot secured from the beginning. Romney was always ahead of his GOP rivals, so it’s not as if he had to neglect females to get where he is today.
If this clip gets around, Romney will have some explaining to do, and he can’t defer to wife Ann this time.
