The debate over 'binders full of women'

Mitt Romney's claim that he sought out 'binders full of women' to hire is being called into question by the same bipartisan Massachusetts group that provided the binders Romney spoke of. Brooke speaks with Priti Rao of MassGAP about the accuracy of Romney's claim and how Romney measures up with regard to hiring women.

    I'm really tired of the focus on this "binders of women" thing. The media goes over everything Romney says with a magnifying glass, hoping to find something controversial. And they are always able to find women who are so terribly offended by something he has said. Today Randy Kaye asked Lily Ledbetter her opinion too – enough! The same level of focus isn't directed at things Pres. Obama says. Will we see interviews asking if people are offended by his use of the word "optimal" referring to the deaths of four of our people in Libya? (Just because Jon Stewart used the word in asking about informing the public doesn't mean he had to use the same word in his response.)

    Not only a "binder of women" Ann Romney caught on video from CNN after the last debate "flipping off" the President. This has been on u-tube. Happened after the debate was over and all were mingling on the stage. She is suppose to be scratching her nose??? Guess she didn't think she'd get caught??? Wonder if they will walk this one back also. Talk about disrespect. Mitt the 47%–their son want to takew a "swing at the President and now this!!!

    Clearly not, because that would still be trenocsntinantal (btw I get that you are trying to be witty). Again, another silly misstatement. I'm sure he knows we have 50 states. It still doesn't compare to Mitt's claim that he is middle class.

    Not as big a dilemma as you are maikng it out to be. Romney's plan is a _state_ plan, whereas Obamacare is a federal one. Most conservatives seem to be okay with state management of many things, including health care.Cheers!a92010 SinisterMatt. All Rights Reserved.
