Skip to comments.The Great Binder Blunder

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.

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?
