Inverting the Question

“There’s a little bit of a laziness on the part of the people who want to claim the Republican Party has some kind of women problem,” said Priebus, speaking at the Christian Science Monitor Breakfast. “We basically have a single women problem under 35 issue.”

The real question, the chairman said, was why Democrats struggled to appeal to so many other groups of women.

“Why does the Democratic Party have so many problems in their engagement with married women, or women with children?” he asked.


“It’s funny to see the question put like that, isn’t it? And yet there’s really no reason that it should be,” Charles Cooke notes. More pushback from Priebus against his interviewer’s leftwing assumptions, here.
