Mitt Romney Monday continues.
Pres. Obama and the Democrats split the women’s vote in the 2010 midterms. Romney and the Republicans seem to be determined to turn that around for them.
According to Lloyd Grove of the Daily Beast, Robert Bork is one of Mitt Romney’s newest legal advisers.
How about the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment? Does he still think it shouldn’t apply to women?
“Yeah,” he answers. “I think I feel justified by the fact ever since then, the Equal Protection Clause kept expanding in ways that cannot be justified historically, grammatically, or any other way. Women are a majority of the population now—a majority in university classrooms and a majority in all kinds of contexts. It seems to me silly to say, ‘Gee, they’re discriminated against and we need to do something about it.’ They aren’t discriminated against anymore.”
Good to know.
