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

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.

    This whole meme makes no sense at all. It’s like the left wants us to believe that Mitt went out and literally herded a bunch of chicks into binders. Does the left even know what a binder is? This is desperation, plain and simple. Romney’s point was obvious. I, an actual woman, thought nothing of it when he said it live.

      It’s kinda dumb of them to even mention it since it gives us so many opportunities to remind voters that Governor Romney appointed more women than any other state governor. Duh!

        R-A has become the very theme of Obama campaign. Kindergardeners know is as “I’m rubber and you’re glue….” Like every time Joe Biden opens his mouth, we just keep exclaiming, “they really said that?” and “this is not the Onion?” and “are they trying to lose?” and especially “It’s kinda dumb of them to even mention it since it gives us so many opportunities to remind voters…!”

        From Winning The Future to binders of women, the Obama campaign has been a Romney-Ryan PAC. Romney’s pension? Whoops, Obama’s is bigger and, whoops! invests in China. War on women? Whooops. Might as well have tried that war on dogs thing again. Pretending they meant act of terror right from the Rose Garden? Whoops! Two weeks of video of all of them saying otherwise brakes their spin. By the time they get down to projecting all their worst, most nightmarish intentions upon the other side, they have beclowned themselves into a state of complete laughingstockery, devolved to a state for which all but the blinded cultists just have pity and contempt.

        And speaking of Reverse-Alinsky, here’s
        RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

        • Ehhh… obviously having too much free time today, I re-posted my ramble at my site, considerably adorned with links, graphics, and videos. (Warning: many impedded vids.) Linked to chrissy’s message above which inspired me (but she should not be held accountable!!), and incorporating the graphic up top and an earlier CtH graphic. Well, I had fun, anyway.

            I sent it out to my list and Dearest told me this morning he was passing it on to about a hundred of his own contacts, many of whom are forwarders themselves. May your hit count shoot through the roof! 🙂

    • I knew what Romney meant, and I’m pretty sure everyone else did too, but I knew right away that the lefties would try to make hay out of it. They’re desperate. It’s like Dan Quayle and the spelling bee. If that’s the worst you can come up with after subjecting them to the most ruthlessly intrusive scrutiny imaginable… well, desperation is the word that pops to mind.
