    As the presidential debate on foreign policy is coming shortly, this is my current file of stories on "Benghazi-gate".  Apparently it is a riddle, wrapped in an enigma.  Competing theories range from simple incompetence to a planned October surprise gone wrong.  In any event, there has been a coverup, aided and abetted by those in the media loyal to the President to run interference.  The coming debate will be interesting and historic as this scandal now has the nation's attention.  It helps to have the information at your finger tips.  So, for you entertainment pleasure, here is the file: Benghazi-Gate. Benghazi-Gate10/19/2012Oversight...
  • Obama campaign emphasis on “Binders” best sign yet for Romney

    Thursday brought a lot of good news for Mitt Romney’s campaign. National polls continue to move in his direction, with poll results starting to take into account the first day of polling after Tuesday night’s debate (though obviously we’ll need several more days of polling to see how the event affected the race). In Ohio, which could determine the outcome of the election, CNN reports that Republicans are significantly improving in early voting from four years ago, a key to winning the state. And the Romney campaign is so confident of victory in North Carolina (which Obama won last time)...

    In the wake of Mitt Romney’s comment in Tuesday night’s debate that he had requested ”binders full of women” to fill cabinet posts when he was governor of Massachusetts, Democrats quickly sought to seize on the remark as yet more evidence that the GOP nominee just doesn’t get it when it comes to female voters... For all of the time and energy Democrats devoted to “binders” —and to the broader “war against women” allegedly being carried about by Republicans —there is little evidence in polling (at least not yet) that Romney is underperforming the gender gap that has been in...

    Which is worse, Barry saying 'when four Americans get killed, it's not optimal' or Romney saying he wanted 'binders full of women' to be able to find more qulaified women to put in his cabinet?

    Critics have tried to make something out of nothing regarding Mitt Romney's "binder" statement regarding women. Somehow, the fact that the Governor of Massachusetts sought out women to hire at the highest levels of state government is embarrassing because of the physical object which he says housed their résumés. Some pundits on the left have claimed the "binder" comment reflects a condescending or patronizing view towards women. But how might they react to a reported binder of Muslim Americans that was handed to the Obama White House in an effort to secure jobs within the admin? According to blog site...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: David Axelrod was on CNN, Piers Morgan Tonight last night, and Piers Morgan said, "There's a very large wins there for Romney on every --" This is the internals of the polls after the debate. This is really curious. Overall, people said, "I think Obama won it by three or four points." You go to the internals on issue after issue after issue, Obama wasn't even close. Romney skunked Obama on every issue. Everything internal. And that's what Piers Morgan is asking Axelrod about. AXELROD: No, it doesn't really worry me, Piers, because I saw a whole...

    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...

    PJ Media ^ | 10/18/12 | Roger L Simon
    One of the most fascinating examples of how the Democratic Party relies on reactionary, even fuddy-duddy, ideology to maintain power is their conception of the role of women in our society. The party and their media minions treat (or pretend to treat) women like an oppressed class when the female population in our colleges and graduate schools (notably law and medicine) has already outstripped or will soon outstrip the male in almost every area save engineering and science, and they are gaining in those. They are also invading the boardrooms and the political arena as never before. And this has...
  • NBC: Romney's 'Binders' Comment Shows He 'Doesn't Have Any Leg to Stand On' With Women

    10/18/2012 9:36:03 AM PDT · by chessplayer · 31 replies
    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: " has taken on a life of its own. The Democrats...

    In my column today at The Fiscal Times, I gave Mark Halperin of Time Magazine a lot of credit for being one of the very few journalists that spoke out about Barack Obama’s lack of a second-term agenda or much substance at all after the debate on Tuesday night. We’ll get back to the column in a moment, but first Halperin extends his analysis today after a 36-hour cycle of Bindergate. Halperin can’t believe that we’re less than three weeks out from the election, and all that seems to concern the Leader of the Free World and his brain trust...

    The “war on women” is back. No, not the Republican assault on the legal equality of women: That never happened in the first place. We mean the Democratic campaign to pretend that Republicans are a threat to women’s rights. Now that Obama no longer has a clear lead in the polls, his campaign and its allies are returning to the talking points of an earlier season. Obama hit them hard in the town-hall debate at Hofstra University. He took credit for signing the Lilly Ledbetter Act, which is supposed to promote equal pay for women, and for forcing almost all...

    Washington (CNN) -- Before Tuesday night's debate, polls showed Mitt Romney had gained ground with women voters. But his comments about using "whole binders full of women" as a hiring aid while governor, whiffing on an equal pay law question, and alluding to helping women get home to cook dinner has landed the GOP presidential hopeful in verbal quicksand with some female voters. He'll have to do some serious repair to regain traction, political experts say.

    As a longtime watcher of politics for going on thirty years, I've seen both parties and the corrupt media grab hold of some inane nonsense in my time, but this "binders full of women" meme is so inane I actually had to ask around to understand what the corrupt media and the left was on about and why the execrable Carol Costello was labeling it the "Binder Blunder" on CNN. Here's an example of the phony outrage I'm seeing: Why did the phrase resonate? Because it was tone deaf, condescending and out of touch with the actual economic issues that...

    I’ve been avoiding this all day but my curiosity’s finally gotten the better of me. Question: Are Democrats obsessing over Romney’s “binders full of women” line at the debate purely as a joke, or are they actually pegging it as some sort of killer new “Big Bird”-style meme that’s going to turn the election for them? Watch the clip below; The One even made a reference to it on the trail today.

I think that the Democrats are losing the War on Women, and if you saw more of the Luntz last night, he asked two women in the top row why they're still supporting President Obama, and they both said basically the same answer, that they fear losing their rights as women. And right after that they gave the mike to a lady in the row right ahead of her who turned around and point-blank said to them, "Mr. Romney has never...

    Mitt Romney’s second-in-command when he was governor of Massachusetts and a coalition of women's groups rallied Wednesday behind the Republican presidential nominee in the face of a rapidly expanding Internet phenomenon poking fun at his "binders full of women." The supporters said Romney, indeed, asked for and received binders with name of potential female candidates for high-level posts -- backing up his claim in Tuesday night's debate that as governor he had reached out to women's groups because he was dissatisfied with the mostly male applicants for jobs in his administration. Romney's anecdote, in which he recalled receiving "binders full...
