Karl Rove's Super PAC Hammers Barack Obama's Economic 'War On Women'

Responding to an Obama campaign ad earlier this week, the pro-Mitt Romney and Karl Rove-led super PAC American Crossroads hammered President Barack Obama with an ad that accused him of waging an economic “war on women.” 

“Some people say there’s a ‘war on women.’ We agree. It’s a war being waged in our economy. Under President Obama, the number of women living in poverty has skyrocketed,” the narrator says.
