President Barack Obama continued his ground game attack by hitting up “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” to condemn recent statements made about women’s “social issues.”

Obama addressed the comments made by Republican Senate candidate Richaed Mourdock’s statement on rape, saying that distinctions on abortion exemptions “don’t make any sense.” He continued by saying, “I don’t know how these guys come up with these ideas,” Obama said. “These various distinctions about rape don’t make too much sense to me, don’t make any sense to me.”

The president also said that the remarks show that decisions on women’s health issues shouldn’t be left just to men.

Mourdock ignited controversy earlier this week when he said that pregnancies resulting from rape are “something that God intended to happen” during the final Indiana Senate debate on Tuesday evening. The president’s campaign denounced the remarks earlier Wednesday, calling the comments “outrageous and demeaning to women.”

Mitt Romney is still supporting Mourdock’s attempt to reach the Republican Senate, but has not really address the comments that were made by him.
