The last (2nd) presidential debate Mitt Romney related how he was an equal opportunity employer as MA governor. He related that he received “binders full of women.” Anyone familiar with business hiring practices knows that this is familiar lingo relating to an employer, for checking out resumes. However, the following day the Obama campaign began to nit pick on that particular Romney debate comment, making it a petulant and ridiculous issue.
The Washington Examiner tells of Obama’s remarks:
>>>>>> ….. In the past two days, liberals have seized on the remarks and Obama has made the comment a part of his stump speech. “I don’t know if you were listening last night, but, see, we don’t have to order up some binders to find qualified, talented, driven young women to learn and teach and thrive and start businesses,” he said in Athens, Ohio on Wednesday. In Manchester, New Hampshire earlier today he said, “See, we don’t have to order up some binders to find qualified, talented, driven young women who can learn and excel in these fields right now.” ….. <<<<<< – washingtonexaminer.com/
To any discerning person who has observed Obama; he usually attacks his political opponents for practices he is guilty of. Obama should talk and criticize Romney when he doesn’t have much of a record to crow about. Obama is said to have tweeted the morning after the debate: “Mitt Romney still won’t say whether he’d stand up for equal pay, but he did tell us he has ‘binders full of women,'” [Washington Times] – washingtontimes.com/
The Washington Times article further continues, pointing out Obama’s hypocrisy:
>>>> ….. But President Obama’s own record on closing the gender pay gap is less than stellar. Using late 2011 figures, the latest available at the time, The Washington Times earlier this year surveyed 121 White House employees who were paid at least $100,000 and found that 47 were women and 74 were men. That is only slightly better than in 2003, the third year of the Bush administration, when 39 of the top 121 employees were women.
When all White House employees are considered, the Obama administration’s record dims a bit further. Female employees earn a median salary of $60,000, roughly 18 percent less than men, whose median salary is $71,000….. <<<<<<< – washingtontimes.com/
Obama continues to hide his political plans for America; yet, he criticizes Romney for not releasing more information about the Romney campaign plan. Obama, for the last three years of his White House occupancy, did not even pass a budget! And, Obama should talk about Romney? Obama talks big; he always does; – all talk and little do.
Finally, it is becoming obvious that Obama’s ugly and obtuse pettiness, using the American female worker to politic against Romney, illustrates that his campaign for president is fast disintegrating. No longer can he buffalo his way with the majority of American voters who increasingly see his Romney rival as someone serious, competent and who offers a fresh alternative to create American jobs and restore its robust economy. If all of Obama’s hot air could do all that Romney offers; our country would have been on a healthy economic recovery the first year that Obama assumed the US presidency.
