Didn’t anyone tell Governor Romney what types of organizers are acceptable for holding women’s resumes? Obama’s campaign has no record to run on so they are going for petty non-issues such as contraceptives, Big Bird, Lily Ledbetter, and binders.
The left is going nuts with negative tweets and articles about the binders of women that Gov. Romney used to further the employment of women in his government.
Gov. Romney mentioned the binders during the debate. They held women’s resumes that were used for jobs that came up in Romney’s administration.
I assume Obama is able to keep it all in his head and doesn’t need binders or perhaps he uses Cosmopolitan notebooks, which would be more acceptable.
This president’s campaign is the most inane that I have seen in my lifetime.
Governor Romney supports and promotes women. While serving as Governor, half his cabinet included women at all levels, a record he is proud of. Governor Romney fought for women before it became the popular mantra of the Obama campaign.
As Governor, Romney actually hired women to equal the number of women in the population, while Obama talks about hiring women and accuses Romney of not hiring women.
President Obama and Mitt Romney were asked about the Lily Ledbetter law during the debate, a law which extends the length of time a woman has in order to sue if she believes she was discriminated against in the workplace. Because he didn’t get back to Obama immediately, Obama accused Romney of not supporting the law. Romney did of course say he supported the law.
So far only 35 women have taken advantage of this law. Using the law as a major accomplishment when it took no effort to pass and affects very few people is really small ball when we have so many serious problems. There is basically no statute of limitations on job discrimination against women now but there is a five-year limitation on rape; someone needs to explain that to me. It was ridiculous that it was even asked during the debate.
Read about Obama’s sketchy record on paying women from The Washington Times:
…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.
While Mr. Obama has taken steps to ensure that senior women in the White House on average make as much or more than men, he has not dramatically increased the number of women at the highest levels compared with those serving under Mr. Bush…Washington Times
