WASHINGTON -- Mitt Romney has come up with an "amazing statistic" and Republicans inside and outside his presidential campaign are doing their utmost to spread it around: "92.3 percent of all the jobs lost during the Obama years have been lost by women."

Amazing it may be. As a meaningful measure of Obama's economic record and its effect on women, though, it is dubious at best.
