Binders full of women? Romney's War on Women is BACK!
Romney was asked a question about Equal Pay for Equal Work for Women. Rather than answer the question (he never answered it), INSTEAD he hopped into a Time Machine and went back to the 1950s. Romney said he supports flex time for women so they can rush home to fix daddy's dinner. Then, his time machine landed him in the Looney Bin! He said when he was governor, he couldn't find any qualified women so he sent his staff out to bring him "Binders full of Women" to help him find a qualified woman to work for him. The man was Governor of Massachusetts, the home of the most prestigious universities and businesses. He said he didn't know of ANY qualified women so he sent his staff to bring him "Binders of Women."
Who talks like that anyway? "Binders full of Women." Was this some form of Affirmative Action -- the only way to find qualified women? "Binders full of Women???"
ROMNEY: Thank you. An important topic, and one which I learned a great deal about, particularly as I was serving as governor of my state, because I had the chance to pull together a cabinet and all the applicants seemed to be men. And I went to my staff, and I said, "How come all the people for these jobs are — are all men." They said, "Well, these are the people that have the qualifications." And I said, "Well, gosh, can't we — can't we find some — some women that are also qualified? And so we — we took a concerted effort to go out and find women who had backgrounds that could be qualified to become members of our cabinet. I went to a number of women's groups and said, "Can you help us find folks," and they brought us whole binders full of women."
Only today we find out this was a Lie. It was actually a Massachusetts Woman's Group that asked Romney to hire more women and Romney didn't know any. So they gave his staff this binder of resumes which Romney referred to as "Binders Full of Women!" Apparently, Romney, in all his years in Business or in government didn't know ANY qualified women.
The man is a misogynist. He wants to end Healthcare for Women (Contraceptives); demolish Planned Parenthood, Veto "Obamacare" and the Dream Policy on DAY ONE! And now he loves BINDERS FULL FOR WOMEN!! And he was extremely rude to debate moderator, Candy Crowley.
What a misogynistic character from the 50's!
