Mitt’s blunders on women

Mitt’s blinders and blunders about women in binders

The question was excellent: “In what new ways do you intend to rectify the inequalities in the workplace, specifically regarding females making only 72 percent of what their male counterparts earn?” It was an easy one for Obama — he signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act into law and has an excellent record when it comes to appointing women to key positions.

Mitt Romney refuses to even give an opinion on the Ledbetter equal-pay law. He suggested last night that some women need to leave work early to “make dinner” for their kids. And defended his record by saying he sought and received “binders full of women” when looking to fill his gubernatorial administration. That last part, about the binders? It’s not close to true.

…during Romney’s tenure at Bain Capital, there were exactly zero women partners

“as governor of Massachusetts, Romney neglected to elevate women to the bench by disproportionately nominating white males for judicial appointments.”

“Why did the phrase resonate? Because it was tone deaf, condescending and out of touch with the actual economic issues that women are so bothered about. The phrase objectified and dehumanized women. It played right into the perception that so many women have feared about a Romney administration – that a president Romney would be sexist and set women back.”

Hey Willard, the 1950’s called. They want their gender stereotypes backs. #womeninthekitchen

Mitt’s “binders full of women” may have been the most offensive answer in the history of American presidential debates.

The last thing a man who was a Mormon Bishop with a family history of polygamy should be talking about is a “binder full of women”… just sayin’.

and he blamed violence on single moms
