Skip to comments.NBC: Romney's 'Binders' Comment Shows He 'Doesn't Have Any Leg to Stand On' With Women
Posted on 10/18/2012 9:36:03 AM PDT by chessplayer
Between Wednesday's Nightly News and Thursday's Today, NBC displayed an obsession with the liberal meme of attacking Mitt Romney's "binders full of women" remark during Tuesday's presidential debate. The network's delusional hyping of the manufactured controversy reached a crescendo when Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski appeared on Today to proclaim: "Romney just completely doesn't have any leg to stand on when it comes to women and the economy." [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump]
Today co-host Savannah Guthrie teed up Brzezinski to slam Romney: "...it has taken on a life of its own. The Democrats love it. They think it really shows Mitt Romney at his most awkward. But if the fight is for independent, undecided women voters, do you think this is an issue that's weighty enough to resonate?"
I’m sure this is important to the average voter.
Stinking Democrat liars.
He meant binders full of the resumes of women who had applied to work in his administration, many of whom he hired and gave good fair salaries to.
Unlike our current federal administration which hires a few token women at less money than the tax cheat loud mouth men it hires.
I don’t know what the big deal is here. I used to be a supervisor and was involved in hiring. HR would send me a pile of resumes. What’s the difference? That I didn’t have them in a binder?
TV press monkeys continue to make fools of themselves.
In other news, Ambassador Stevens is still dead.
Binders and Big Bird? That’s it....that’s all you got?
What am I missing. Headhunters, consultants, college recruiters, etc. all have binders full of resumes categorized by desirable traits.
Unlike Obama who hired a handful of female marxist cronies he’s known for years.
Does NBC actually think women are that stupid? This is a desperate attempt to pander to women and it’s going to backfire.
The 2nd debate was another fiasco for Zero because of Crowleygate, and this is the only thin reed the Dems can pull from it: a revival of the silly “war on women.”
Dear God Please let people see that someone who is too stupid to understand what ‘binder’ is and somehow thinks it means “women tied up” are too stupid to vote and afflict them with a stomach or intestinal disorder that keeps them home from voting... they can be cured the next day, that’s aOK
Maybe the people at NBC think that “binders full of women” is a code word for porn?
If they do, they have sick minds.
For 82% of the pay of their male counterparts.
“Binders full of women” is way more important than Obama lies about energy or Benghazi IMO. /s
Minitru just wants something else to report on than Benghazi. They’ll latch onto anything, no matter how small, trivial or stupid (especially stupid!).
Unlike Obama who hired a handful of female marxist cronies hes known for years.
And then underpaid them and treated them like crap. But libs and feminist groups don’t care about that because they have Bindergate!
William Ayers and Bernadette Dhorn collect royalties on a book of poetry written by the women of the weather underground. The women who did the actual writing got nothing.
The sick irony is that this meme comes from
supporters of SLAVERY. The DNC supports
countries that “own” SLAVES.
THAT is why they make a big deal about women’s
names in binders. To try to divert.
As for Mika Brzezinski, it is common knowledge how and why she got her job, and even those who do not know can assume as much simply by observing the gaping distance between her talents and the demands of mere adequacy.
Except the legs of all the women who have worked with him, and who have stepped forward in support of him. This is almost as bad as Matthews asking if challenging Obama is unconstitutional. These people are demented and deranged.
Life can not get any more bizarre in liberal media land. They have become Monty Python America.
“Doesn’t have a leg to stand on” is offensive.
My grandfather lost his leg in WWII.
I demand that NBC apologize for their insensitivity.
The 2nd debate was another fiasco for Zero because of Crowleygate, and this is the only thin reed the Dems can pull from it: a revival of the silly war on women.
Agree. They needed something prior to monday to take the emphasis off higher UC claims, and Bengazhi Gate.
Great post, says it all.
All jokes on this aside, what exactly are the liberals upset about? Romney indicated that he wanted to do outreach, to recruit women to work in his administration. How can liberals oppose that on policy grounds? Why would liberals be upset that he wanted to recruit women? What am I missing??????
It just proves they have nothing on Romney so they try to make something of absolutely nothing. Biteme is on the campaign trail mocking the binders comment, what an election winning tactic, idiots!!
The worst this could be described as is an imperfect turn of phrase. Romney did not put women in binders; he organized their resumes with them.
Obama saying “when I was president” was a much odder gaffe. Republicans are not focused on misstatements as much as factual errors and a poor track record. That Obama’s camp is focused on such a thing wreaks of desperation.
a revival of the silly war on women.
Silly is right. I actually have Facebook friends who think they will not have access to Birth Control and/or Abortion will be outlawed if Romney is elected. And that’s all they base their vote on. Some others are only voting for Obama because they can finally get healthcare. Again, that’s all that matters to them. Obama could lock up their Grandparents in a Gulag and they would look the other way as long as they are getting what they want.
Like the Big Bird comment I’m beginning to think Romney said this to get Dems in a tizzy about nothing. And they bit big time. What a stupid thing to focus on at this point in a campaign. Dems are prattling about Romney’s binders comment while their campaign is crumbling. Except for the usual dimwitted rad-feminist contingent, nobody cares. Voters care about who’s going to fix the economy not about a so-called gaffe about “binders full of women.”
Women in all 57 states hate Romney...
