Last night's debate

Photo by Carly Romeo of Two Spoons PhotoAt last night’s debate here in Florida, where I’m campaigning with women’s groups, Romney clearly had memorized foreign policy phrases unfamiliar to him.

One was “gender equality” as a remedy for extremism in the Middle East—but Romney is an extremest who doesn’t support gender equality at home.

He has refused to support even equal pay legislation—or the Violence Against Women Act. He has pledged to eliminate Planned Parenthood, and to go even beyond the Middle East by supporting the Human Life Amendment that nationalizes women’s bodies by conferring legal personhood on a fertilized egg.

In America or the Middle East, Mitt Romney as president could turn into our own Ayatollah. Only Obama understands and supports gender equality.
