Binders full of women

When he was governor, Massachusetts ranked #1 among all 50 states in the percentage of women appointed by the governor to policy-making positions.

Women Can’t Afford Another Four Years Of President Obama

http://www.mittromney.com/news/press/2012/10/women-cant-afford-another-four-years-president-obama

During the 2nd Presidential Debate on October 16th, Mitt Romney demonstrated his record of strong pro-active support for women.

When he was elected Governor of Massachusetts, he was unhappy with how few female candidates were being considered for his cabinet.

He told his people, “We need to find more women” and said they ended up with “binders full of women.”

The whackadoodle Left latched on to this phrase — “binders full of women” — and made out like it was demeaning, which it was not.

Romney used the phrase as shorthand for the numerous qualified women his team found to interview for top positions in his administration.

After the first debate, the Left harped on how Romney supposedly wanted to kill Big Bird. Now they’re ranting about how Romney supposedly demeans women by putting their resumés into binders.

Sometimes the Left is beyond stupid.

We need real leadership in Washington

Romney was a successful Republican governor in a Democrat-majority state [:32]

Obama doesn’t even work with his own people, never mind Republicans.

If the roof leaks, you don’t tear out the foundation!

But that’s what ObamaCare amounts to. In 2009, the huge majority of Americans were HAPPY with their health care choices and a solid majority did NOT want ObamaCare passed. The Democrat majority in Washington passed it anyway.

Yes, the health care system fails some, but these are “leaks in the roof” problems that Republicans had PLANS to address. Democrats yapped that Republicans had no plan, but that was just a blatant lie. Republicans proposed multiple health care reform bills in Congress that the Democrat majority REFUSED TO BRING TO A VOTE.

The Republicans plans did NOT involve the government taking control of the health care industry and taxing us all into oblivion. But that’s exactly what Democrats want … bigger government and higher taxes. Why? Because it concentrates all the power and money in THEIR hands.

If elected, Mitt Romney has promised to stop this wholesale demolition of the health care system that actually works well for most Americans. He wants to start over, look seriously at those Republican plans the Democrats ignored and pick the ones that look most likely to “fix the leaks.”

Oct 19 Pray for Our Nation

Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them. And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive your trespasses. ~Mark 11:24-25

Father, Help our nation with its unbelief! Lead us into a renewed relationship with You! Forgive us when we find fault in our brothers. Help us to look beyond their shortcomings and look deeper within ourselves to become better people. Forgive us when we fall short of doing all that You’ve called us to do, and when we fail to demonstrate love and forgiveness toward those who wrong us. Thank You for the blessing of knowing that we are forgiven — no matter what.
