Connie Schultz explains the trouble with Mitt Romney’s tepid response to Rush Limbaugh’s misogynistic rant, in her column, “Romney’s Woman Problem:”
On the evening of Super Tuesday, a radiant Ann Romney stepped up to the microphone at a Boston rally and took her best shot at changing the subject.
“Do you know what women care about?” she said. “Women care about jobs. Women care about the economy. They care about their children, and they care about the debt.”

I hear you, sister.
As all of the country knows, Limbaugh called 30-year-old law student Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” and asked her to post online video of her sex life. Mitt Romney’s response — “it’s not the language I would have used” — didn’t exactly close the distance between him and the millions of mothers whose hair was on fire.
We wanted fatherly outrage. He gave us a CEO’s shrug.
