According to one of his campaign advisers Romney opposed the Lily Ledbetter act
when it was being debated and his debate answer suggested that women need
flexible schedules so they can do things like go home and make dinner. Why
can't men make their own darn sammiches?
The Obama campaign tactics will do anything with a benign statement and make it
a diversionary tactic to take away any looking at his dismal record and
performance in the past almost 4 years.He had rhetoric and learned
it well as Americans helped pay for his college education. He was persuasive in
getting Hillary Clinton to stop running for President in 2008. He may have even
promised her the Secretary of State job. He didn't want her as a
Vice-President and he now has a great VP for the past 4 years and potentially
for the next 4 years. He can't show proof in the pudding so he
will bring up 47 percent and other such topics as women in binders.He won't answer the tough questions such as Libya, Fast and Furious,
economic mirror shining but will go on television and stage to tout great jokes
and smile with his friends in Hollywood.His family has taken
extravagant vacations all around the world not like common folk.He
has thrown Mrs. Clinton under the bus along with the Ambassador to the United
Nations over this Libya issue.He is amazing and Michelle is proud.
Mitt Romney tossed a lot of shiny objects last night. "Everyone gets a tax
cut, while we increase spending, balance the budget, and bring down the
deficit." That object is so shiny, it blinds us to the logic which shows it
doesn't add up.
JWB said: "The Obama campaign tactics will do anything with a benign

but as usual you provide no evidence. The democrats didn't use a misquote
as their central theme at the convention either.Birth
Certificate?Christian or Muslim?"He won't answer the
tough questions such as Libya" You mean like last night when he
schooled mitt on Libya?"His family has taken extravagant
vacations?"Presidents aren't allowed to vacation? ...and he
isn't even approaching GW's record."He has thrown Mrs.
Clinton under the bus " Wrong again it was her choice and last night in the
debate he said it's on him or were you only listening when mitt was
spinning?JWB you've been busy today apologising for mitt's
lack luster performance, it must be hard blaming everyone but mitt.
Funny that Jay chose a Mitt Romney lie [aka, Factcheckers] about the binder
story.Woman's Rights advocates have been putting these
"binders" together for years.Gov. Romney was given his
"binder" Day-One in office -- NOT the other way around as he claims.That said, That was the OLD Mitt Romney - Woman's
Rights, Pro-Choice, Romneycare, Contraception Romney ...before the Tea-Party morphed him into the fake Romney.
JWBKaysville, UTNo one needs to spin anything. Mitts
biggest nemesis is Mitt. All an opponent has to do is put him in a room,
ask him hard questions, record the answers, and then play them back later.And if you can record him when he does not know he is being recorded, the real
elitist mitt comes out. You know; The one he does not want us common po folks
I know it is hard to live in Utah Valley and especially Happy Valley with the
good people that surround the area and know your vote is going to count as
everyone there votes Republican as in Davis county.It can be
depressing to know that what you believe that most of the neighbors don't
agree with. Utah needs some balancing in their political process but to vote
for a President who has shown his colors in a different way than is portrayed in
the press and media is a shame.Nixon liked the power of his office
and unfortunately didn't stay the whole time his second term as his power
was not appropriate. His "friends" helped take him down and some paid
the price with a term in confinement, as it was in some military base. We
don't need to go through even two years more to have that type of future.
Okay - it has now been a full day since the debate. Mr. Romney has had a full
day to tell the world his plan to deal with pay inequality. So what
is the plan? Is it the same as his list of exemptions and deductions he'll
remove? All I hear is crickets chirping...

thing.Funny thing is most people whom disagree with my political
leanings are quite naive of politics in general. Right wing emails filled
with birther and socialist nonsense are there only knowledge of the
candidates.Most reasonable people after finding out that they are
forwarding complete "Malarky" are embarrassed. Some will never
face the facts and blame the media, or anyone but the person lying to them,
these are fans of the master disinformation specialists rush, sean, glenn ect...
I heard a whole lot of distortion and outright lies from Mitt last night. Are
Candidates get stuck with these things, right or wrong. Except sarah palin. She
may not have said she could see russia from her house, but she did utter some
incredibly unintelligent things.
Mitt Romney's attitude concerning women is basically anti-women. His views
during the Republican primary morphed and shifted because he had to please the
extreme wing of his party. Now as he tries to move somewhat into the middle,
his "acquiring resumes" is not sufficient when he basically believes a
woman's place should be in the home taking care of all the babies she will
have to bear since she will not be allowed to have control of her own body.Mad Men meet Mitt Romney. Both from the same era with the same
I think it was a pretty humorous miss speak but thats all it was and
conservatives getting all riled up over it is only making the feeding frenzy
worse. Smile its almost over.
you are so wrong, Jay. As Freud said, it's the little revelations that tell
you what a man is made of. "Binders full of women" is Romney's
unconscious way of expressing that all human beings are to him are "human
resources," "ASSETS," the businessman's way of seeing people as
things. "Binders full of women" tells you pretty much all you need to
know about Romney.
From the article: "And not the slightest step had been taken toward a
substantive discussion of pay equity."From a Yahoo article about
the debate: "Before answering the question, Romney had been reminded that
women earn about 72 percent what their male counterparts do—and his
response was to say, “Exactly! That’s why, given half a chance, I
hire women!”"Romney is the one that was showing shiny
objects and distracting from the question - not to mention his story is a
misrepresentation of the facts....and when he did appoint women it
was to cabinet positions that were a little less than important....but, hey! Let's get distracted by Jay's shiny ball......
'Binders full of women'. Comedians are going to have a field day.
A non-issue. Much more important things to discuss.
Liberals want to distract. They want us to ignore the real problems as they
force-feed us their nonsense. The question was about equal pay for equal work.
Romney told us how he solved the problem. It was an actual solution that took
into account the additional responsibilities that most women have outside the
workplace. Because he had a solution, the liberals immediately mocked him.
They had no solution. He had a solution.Romney showed how he would
reduce the deficit while lowering tax rates by INCREASING the number of people
who pay taxes. That was not what liberals wanted to hear. They are too busy
telling us to go on welfare, to become part of the problem, to demand that some
"rich guy" pay their welfare checks.Each time a valid and
workable solution is offered, liberals go on the offensive to destroy that
solution. They don't want things to work. They want us to look to
Washington and to use government's trickle-down programs.Look
at the polls. Americans are rejecting the liberal theme. Americans can see
through their smoke and mirrors.
This morning I was listening to the radio on the way to work and the airways
were full of anti-affirmative action rhetoric in anticipation of the upcoming
Supreme Court case.So, if Republicans are so opposed to affirmative
action, why do you all consider it commendable for Governor Romney to insist his
cabinet be 50 percent female? Contridiction much?
Hiring qualified women is not "affirmative action". Hiring qualified
men is not "affirmative action". Hiring someone who is unqualified
because he/she is part of a under-represented group is "affirmative
action". No business can survive if it is required to hire unqualified
people when qualified people are available. Romney asked about
qualified women. He asked what needed to be done so that qualified women could
have those good paying jobs. He asked what changes had to be made so that
qualified women could feed their families and handle their financial
responsibilities. Nothing in his remarks referred to hiring anyone, man or
woman, who was unqualified for the position.
