Charles Krauthammer Solves The Republican War On Women Problem

Charles Krauthammer "The Way Forward" Washington Post
The country doesn’t need two liberal parties. Yes, Republicans need to weed out candidates who talk like morons about rape. But this doesn’t mean the country needs two pro-choice parties either. In fact, more women are pro-life than are pro-choice. The problem here for Republicans is not policy but delicacy — speaking about culturally sensitive and philosophically complex issues with reflection and prudence.
The problem is not policy but delicacy! Instead of Mitt Romney saying, "Planned Parenthood we're going to get rid of that", he had delicately responded, "Planned Parenthood, we will downgrade its functionality to a non-operating capability" everything would have been fine? How would republicans "with prudence and delicacy" explain to women the government requirement for medically unnecessary trans-vaginal ultrasounds that women themselves have to pay for? Republican governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Corbett tried "you just have to close your eyes". Obviously, republican governor Tom Corbett's problem isn't with his policy, it's just the coarse and "moronic" language he used. Republican Richard Mourdock who "moronically" stated that pregnancy from rape was "something that god intended" instead should have delicately whispered that "the method of conception doesn't change the definition of life" as republican Vice-Presidential candidate Paul Ryan claimed.  

Good Luck, Republicans relabeling your War on Women.  May I suggest:

Republican politicians will continue to legislatively interfere in the  "culturally sensitive and philosophically complex issue" of women's personal reproductive decisions but "with reflection and prudence" will drastically decrease the frequency of its members "moronic" public statements.    

See, problem solved.  If the republican party follows Charles Krauthammer's stunning example of "prudent and reflective" (keep your mouth shut) commentary on "culturally sensitive and philosophically complex issues" (the war on women) the republican party is sure to duplicate its 2012 "success".
