Breitbart -- President Barack Obama falsely criticized Mitt Romney's record of hiring and promoting women. However, his White House pays women less than men. Worse, the White House has been described as a "hostile workplace," by his own female debate coach -- Anita Dunn, who used to be the White House Communications Director.
Obama said on Tuesday at campaign events in Iowa and Ohio, "I’ve got to tell you, we don’t have to collect a bunch of binders to find qualified, talented, driven young women, ready to learn and teach in these fields right now."
Obama was referring to comments Mitt Romney made during the second presidential debate when Romney said he actively sought and recruited qualified women for high-level positions and in the recruiting process he would wind up with "binders full of women."
Blog author's comments - Mitt Romney needs to stay on topic and focused on Obama's record of failures and not get pulled into this nonsense. The Obama campaign is doing anything they can in an attempt to halt Romney's effectiveness during this presidential campaign. The 'binders' comments by Obama are used out of desperation. The election is less than three weeks away and Obama thought by this time he would have had a commanding lead. He is grasping for straws in an attempt to gain the support of women voters.
His campaign will resort to anything they can to paint Romney as someone who would not be a president for all of America’s citizens. I don't see the problem, this may have been a minor, extremely small misspeak by Romney. He could have said 'binders full of women(s) names' and resumes instead of full of women. For Obama to insert this into his stump speech's shows the anxiety the Obama campaign is feeling. In 2008 most voters knew very little about Barack Obama. Now he has a record which many voters will use to judge him.
