Santorum Focuses on Reaching Out to Women; Adviser Says They Are a 'MacGyver Campaign'

Although when he walked on the stage the race here had yet to be called for Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum gave an address that seemed to focus on some of the mistakes he has made over the past week.

Just on the mistakes that he made *last week*?

MSNBC commentary on the primary last night indicated that Romney has a huge surge among women voters in Michigan, which is why he squeaked passed Santorum on such a narrow margin. Seems like ol' Sanctimonious Rick shot himself in the foot with all of his social conservative stancing.

Let the 'back peddling' begin...again. What a waste of air space Icktorum is. Demands women turn their bodies over to his laws while 'asking' for their votes ? Surely there aren't that many women who buy his insane/midevil ideas at this time...but then there are still a few teabaggers with cash who like his ideas on womens he probably can squeeze a few more dollars, for caviar or even another abortion for his wife in the future,out of their pockets with this latest 'outreach to women' B.S. of his.

Sorry Ricky, it just doesn't wash. You said all those vile things reagrding women's rights and college education and left a big, bad stain on yourself.

Women are the majority of voters so it doesn't pay to pander to male myths at their expense.

lol- I don't think that he can reach that far back to the dark ages - where women may listen to what he is saying!

He can "reach" all he wants, but women are keenly aware that he wants us barefoot and pregnant, in the kitchen, with No Voice. He can not take back what has come out of his mouth and what legislation he has tried to put forth in his personal War On Women.

Santorum is like the rest of his party: full of sound and fury signifying nothing.

"Reaching out to women?" With what? A HAMMER?

Santorum has been against women for years. He wants them at home, barefoot and pregnant with
no rights at all. Santorum thinks he can "change" in one evening in Michigan... What an idiot.

The state of PA rejected him by a very large margin as he attempted to run for re-election for a senate seat.

Santorum should step completely out of the race; he is unelectable.

Ty, Cal.

We all know what he thinks. He wants women to vote for him, hopefully women will remember he is a mysoginist.

MacGyver, huh? Wow, at least Santorum's handlers chose an awesome comparison.

I like how he "reached out to women" and said that we should view a rape-induced pregnancy as a gift.

Sanitorium did it again. This time he shows that he thinks women are stupid. "The women who signed the ...".WTF !!

Just for a bit of a reality check. Not all women are against what Santorum says. While still a minority the Christian Evangelical movement not only has women true believers who follow but also those who lead.the New Apostolic Revivalists, remember Perry's pray-athon, has several Women preacher/pastors, then there is Maggie Gallagher, not to mention One Million Moms, Concerned Women, Jan Brewer, Sara Palin, Niki Hailey, all of the women Repug/Tea Bagged members of the US House and the legislatures of numerous states. This is not just Men attacking Women's rights it is also Women attacking Women's rights. Santorum are dangerous theocratic men but so are all of the Women who of their own free will support and vote for them.
