Skip to comments.The Great Binder Blunder
Posted on 10/19/2012 2:51:14 PM PDT by trappedincanuckistan
So the other morning a reader e-mails me a picture of a handful of women demonstrating outside the headquarters of the Ohio Republican party in what we expert analysts round about this point in the quadrennial election cycle like to call the critical battleground of the Buckeye State. The women each wore two giant pieces of cardboard, front and back. Ah, I thought, a timely protest. These activists understand that, with Obamas flatline economy drifting inexorably to a $20 trillion federal debt, well soon be living in cardboard shacks in shantytowns in the parking lot of the bankrupt Solyndra factory. Or its what theyll be using for the x-ray plates at your local hospital once the Obamacare rationing kicks in. Or maybe its the perfect visual metaphor for the flimsiness of U.S.-government security at its Middle Eastern embassies before the Death to the Great Satan! crowd punched through the compound like so much soggy cardboard.
But no. The women were chanting Equal rights, not binders, and they were protesting the following remarks by Mitt Romney at the presidential debate:

So lame. Women aren’t stupid although the left apparently thinks their concubines are.
So Romney had a binder of women’s resumes. What’s the big deal? If he had one of men would the media think he was gay?
Thought Mitt handled the comment pretty well. What’s the beef with the binder comment?
These dipstick Dem dames are due for an oil check! They are one quart short of functional.
If Obama thinks the binder thing is a big deal, he’s seriously lacking in ammo....
Good grief, who cares...
“Thought Mitt handled the comment pretty well. Whats the beef with the binder comment?”
It was not optimal.
I don’t get the hoopla. So Romney has binders with resumes, why is that a bad thing? Doesn’t that just mean he is considering women for jobs?
Liberals are so ignorant.
“So the other morning a reader e-mails me a picture of a handful of women demonstrating outside the headquarters of the Ohio Republican party”
Not saying anything about women in general, but obviously....
Some are. Women in my family think and have said they want Michelle Obama to run for POTUS in 2016. When asked, they could not name one qualification. But they still want her to be president. TO be fair, there are stupid men also. And there is certainly no shortage of them in my family.
Let’s not drag bath house Barry into this.
Amen. This binder thing is an Obama/media constructed controversy meant to distract people from the Libya thing. Obama knows he trapped himself the other night.
PC requires employers to have binders full of women then complains when they have binders full of women.
How many binders of women do you suspect Bill Clinton kept in his office?
I work with a Jewish female lawyer. Guess what her Halloween costume is going to be?
Please don’t tell me Gloria (I would chase an ambulance, but being paid by the DNC is easier) Alred?
Don’t women dress up as women anymore? They have dressed as all kinds of things this year.
I find stuff like this fascinating. Its like a clinical laboratory experiment in mind control.
Binders. Lets all talk about binders.
And sure enough, like a fog filling the room, its all you hear.
Doesn’t work with me, in fact I find I’m immune to most of this kind of thing. Whats my secret? I don’t watch TV news. I don’t let these people into my home or into my head.
I’m still mystified that the Dems with all the huge problems convulsing the country think it’s a smart idea to pursue binder-gate. I’m tempted out of pity to tell them that this is a real loser of a campaign strategy. But if they want to keep shooting themselves in their big feet with Big Bird-gate and binder-gate, I guess I should tell them to go ahead.
Romney didn’t assemble the “binder” full of women...he indicated his staff delivered the resumes to him in a binder, a common office supply to assist in organizing data before computers were commonplace.
I retired from the phone company, and while I was there we had to have a lot of extra shelves installed to hold all of the binders it took to organize the data we needed to track.
On the other hand, Obama never worked anywhere, so he wouldn’t have any concept of the purpose of binders. He still doesn’t.
The libs are even claiming that the binders were full of women’s pictures, trying to add perversion to the equation,
They’re all sick.
How is keeping binders of women worse than coercing young females to polish your k***b in the oval office?
Because the morons think Romney was implying he had binders of women for sexual purposes...or something...I think. Actually, it's so stupid you've got to wonder if the people at the Dem campaign headquarters have totally lost their minds with this loser of a strategy.
Probably a few, but that was for an entirely different purpose, like employment for an hour or so in return for a large monetary consideration.
Romney’s description of deliberately searching for qualified women to nominate is an annoying act of “affirmative action”, but it should be seen as a plus to feminists who say we need more women in top posts, not an insult.
I have tried to follow this - but cant. Is this comment being taken by Obama that Romney doesnt have any women cronies or relatives or daughters of lobbiests to hire - and actually has to look through some resumes?
Or is there something in the term binder that is either sexist (like breast or foot binding) or is old-fashioned (binder - Romney cant use a computer?) Or is it because he has “binders full of women” (how do they all fit in there!?), and not “binders full of women’s resumes”?
Sounds like whoever prepped Biden on his debate has taken over the entire campaign.
Binder!!!??? HaHaHaHaHa.. Did he say a BINDER!!??? WOW - a BINDER????!!! Come over to my house. HaHaHaHa
(A sign with this on it would surely tick off those protesters :) )
Well yes, just goes to show:
Liberal women vote between their legs.
Conservative women vote between their ears.
Where is the “binder” full of e-mails requesting security support from Chris Stevens, Obama?????
I am just glad I didn’t choke on my wine reading that comment. Too true and one I have thought often.
rumor is Michelle and Valerie Jarrett run the show while Obama plays golf and reads the teleprompter
For a while now, I've been wondering if God, having gotten fed up with the Israel-hating, anti-Christ, baby-murdering, Muslim-loving bunch in the White House, has sent a spirit of confusion into their midst. They've been digging their holes deeper and deeper, almost as though they're in a fog of incomprehension. And this binder stupidity further confirms my idea (to me, anyway).
“Romneys description of deliberately searching for qualified women to nominate is an annoying act of affirmative action, but it should be seen as a plus to feminists who say we need more women in top posts, not an insult.”
Nail on the head. The irony of this entire story.
4 men murdered in Libya?.....
Yeah, it's a tossup alright..../s
don’t forget big bird.
big bird + binders > 4 men murdered in Libya
RE> I find Im immune to most of this kind of thing. Whats my secret? I dont watch TV news. I dont let these people into my home or into my head.
Bravo! Here’s to talking head immunity. (Cling) Have not had broadcast or Cable TV in so long I can’t remember. Cut the Cable is what I tell everyone. Maybe it’s catching on. :)
Or is it because he has binders full of women (how do they all fit in there!?), and not binders full of womens resumes?
Yes, that’s most of it, they are deliberately misinterpreting his comment in order to make fun of it. However, from reading some lib comments about this, I’ve discovered they are pushing another angle about the binders. They’re saying that Mitt said he requested those binders, but really, some pro-feminist group had already sent him and his opponent in the race the binders full of women, so Mitt is claiming responsibility for the binders falsely. Or something like that.
“But now, after four decades of movement on womens rights, Romney wants to go back to when they were stationary.”
(Good line, but I would have spelled it “stationery”).
"... the president declared: Ive got to tell you, we dont have to collect a bunch of binders to find qualified, talented, driven young women. No, sir! In the Democratic party, driven young women are dropping into your lap."
Their campaign is called FORWARD, you know. ;-))
Either way, definitely not optimal.
DRIVEN? into your lap? .... Did O' really say those words?..ROFL...PERVERT!!!.
Sounds like the Democratic Party is running a Brothal now...give us a call "We have Driven Young Women to drop in your lap".....
Yeah we know how much they like and care for women, who can forget Slick Willie and how much he cared?
I’m sure his desk is clean as a whistle unless CPUSA sends over another executive order.
This is the “Houdini election”. Obama and Axelrod are using sleight of hand to get you to watch the rabbit, while the economy and foreign affairs crash and burn.
It’s not really about women. Anybody who watched it, knows Romney just left out the word resume. No, this is just an excuse to talk about something other than Benghazi, and the economy. I mean Romney eviserated Obama on flying off to Vegas on the day 4 americans were killed in a 9/11 terrorist act. Obama and the media dont want to talk about that, so they distract us with trival crap.
