Boehner: GOP needs to work on talking to women

(CNN) - House Speaker John Boehner wants to get ahead of the GOP's women problem before the 2014 midterms, making sure Republican men in the House get a little sensitivity training to learn how to run against female opponents and appeal to female voters. Last year, Republican Senate candidates talked of "legitimate rape," among other things

Boehner is being candid, and it is not a secret that since the end of the last election, Republicans have been licking their wounds, and trying to figure out the best way to close the gender gap among voters and try to recruit more female candidates.
