Boston charges Obama’s the one waging a “war on women.”

“The number of unemployed women has increased by nearly a million under Barack Obama,” Romney surrogate Bay Buchanan said on a conference call with reporters. “92 percent of the jobs lost since he took office are women.”

“You want to talk about the real war on women… go right over and talk to the White House,” she added.
