Quotes of the day

Speaking in Mount Vernon, Iowa, Mr. Obama made his own reference to Mr. Romney’s “binders” comment, saying that there were enough talented women in the country that finding them required no special search.

Mr. Romney, at a campaign rally in Chesapeake, Va., hit back. “This president has failed America’s women,” he said. “They’ve suffered in terms of getting jobs. They’ve suffered in terms of falling into poverty.”…

Through polling and focus groups, the Romney campaign has found that while undecided women said they were concerned primarily about economic issues, they were troubled by whether Mr. Romney’s positions on issues like abortion and contraception were too unyielding…

Mr. Romney’s campaign had its own offensive ready. In a phone call with reporters, Senator Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire said “when the president talks about women’s issues he doesn’t talk about his vision for how he’s going to make sure that we address the number of women who are under- or unemployed.”

***

“You heard the debate last night,” Biden told a crowd of more than 1,000 at the Island Grove Regional Park Exhibition Hall. “When Gov. Romney was asked a direct question about equal pay, he started talking about binders. Whoa! The idea that he had to go and ask where a qualified woman was, he just should have come to my house. He didn’t need a binder.

“For good measure, Romney said, on multiple occasions, that he wants to get rid of Planned Parenthood,” Biden added. “Look, talk about being out of touch. It’s not just the Swiss bank accounts and the Cayman Islands. No, really isn’t. It’s more than that. That I understand him doing. I can’t understand someone running for president doing [it], but I can understand him doing it. … But what I can’t understand is how he has gotten in this sort of 1950s time warp in terms of women.”

***

On CBS Wednesday morning, vice presidential running mate Paul Ryan defended Romney’s point.

“All he simply meant was that he went out of his way to try to recruit qualified women to serve in his administration when he was governor,” the Republican congressman told “CBS This Morning.” “That’s really what he was saying. And, by the way, he has an exceptional record of hiring women in very prominent positions in his administration, and that’s the point he was making.”

***

An adviser to the Romney campaign with knowledge of Romney’s hiring process acknowledged that the former governor had been approached about — and agreed to — the pledge before taking office, and that the outside group had already been engaging in independent outreach efforts to solicit resumes for women who would be willing to work in government. The adviser, however, argued that Romney “actively sought” the binders out upon taking office because he wanted to make use of their resources.

“When Governor Romney came into office he undertook to fulfill his pledge. And while many of the top positions were filled by women who Gov. Romney found on his own through the transition process, through his business contacts, he also worked very cooperatively with the Massachusetts Women’s Caucus and reached out to them to make use of them and their resources,” the Romney adviser told CBS News. “We didn’t have to accept those names, we didn’t have to ask them for it to fulfill the pledge.”…

According to a study by the University of Massachusetts Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy using data provided by MassGAP, the percentage of women appointed to senior-level positions in Massachusetts government did rise – from approximately 30 percent prior to the 2002 election to 42 percent by 2004. Among those appointed were Kerry Healey, who became Romney’s lieutenant governor (and also served as the liaison in the process with MassGAP) and chief of staff Beth Myers. Between 2004 and 2006, the study says women made up just 25 percent of Romney’s 64 new appointments, lower than when he was elected.

He obviously never created a single job and has NO clue how job searches take place. Media, suffocate from eating his sh*t, which is not Beluga caviar.

“Well, think about what the governor — think about what the governor just said. He said when I took office, the price of gasoline was $1.80, $1.86. Why is that? Because the economy was on the verge of collapse, because we were about to go through the worst recession since the Great Depression, as a consequence of some of the same policies that Governor Romney’s now promoting. So, it’s conceivable that Governor Romney could bring down gas prices because with his policies, we might be back in that same mess.”

I’d think the best policy is to avoid the abortion issue altogether, so I wonder about that abortion ad. Maybe it’s needed, though, to rebut claims that RR would outlaw abortion like Akin even in cases of rape. If not, it’s an odd ad.
It’s funny how the abortion issue is the one thing that is keeping conservatism from taking over. A substantial slice of the electorate lean to the Dems because of it, and if ever it looked like abortion rights were truly endangered, woman and many men would vote en masse for the Dems. That’s why we can never win on that issue. Kind of like that you can never go the speed of light. The closer you get to that speed, the heavier you get. With abortion, the closer we got to outlawing it, the more voters would turn against us.

anotherJoe on October 18, 2012 at 12:22 AM

i watched very little of the ‘debate’. one major reason that this country is so, well…doomed, is that the leftists have been very good at suppression of speech

i just read the post wrt the 72 percent myth of female compensation. Such a stupid and vapid little lie..but i’m sure that the stupid, vapid little woman believes it.

it is fine for people to be stupid..after all we’re all just people. What is deadening to the country is the fear of telling the truth. Had mitt told the truth…that the fictional 72 percent is based on men/women not comparably situated….nurse v. doctor…etc…and other things.

so the woman asked a question premised on a leftist lie…and there’s no room for anyone to tell the truth

the suppression of speech extends to the binder business. What the left is all about is controlling and suppressing speech. Binders of women is a totally innocuous statement…but the Left and the left PR machine like CBS have to try to make anything that an R says Evil, White, Male and stupid.

i admire mitt and paul for being brave enough to mount a campaign in the face of mindless Leftism

the leftism that hates them…most of the people in that room last night H8 them…candy, the previous obama voters, the ‘press’ that applauded barry on the pension remark

the leftism is thick and the hatred is obvious. as someone on twitter said…at least Mother Jones is out front about who they are.

You think that was a good moment for Obama? Everyone watching was asking themselves what the hell he was talking about? If the lousy economy is the reason for the low gas prices when he took office, then why have the prices doubled when the economy still sucks? And is he essentially telling Americans to accept high gas prices if they want a robust economy? That’ll really rally the country behind him.

It’s simple economics. When we were losing 800k jobs a month, gas prices were down due to lack of demand. Now that we have reversed that trend and have created over 5.2M jobs, demand has gone up hence the rise in price. I doubt you will understand this simple concept but hey what else can I do.

I’m speculating, but it has been a meme in leftist circles that Romney was a draft dodger. I’m willing to bet this info is something along those lines. It explains the timing and everything.

Corporal Tunnel on October 18, 2012 at 12:02 AM

I don’t know — the whole draft dodger thing has been written about a lot in HuffPo & Politico — which are lefty sites, but more “mainstream” than something like the nutso Mother Jones which people usually don’t pay attention to unless the MSM has an ulterior motive. So I doubt it is draft-dodging related.

I’m not saying this guy isn’t anti-Romney OWSer, but I’m included to think hoax, PR stunt or much ado about nothing. Remember last month that “hacker” group claimed to have stolen Romney’s tax returns — they were supposed to release them at end of September? They never released them. The guy has tweeted both Obama & Romney (both of whom I’m sure don’t actually work their twitter accounts — but their staff do) 2 days ago — I’m inclined to think Secret Service will get to him before his “deadline.”

HotAirLib on October 18, 2012 at 12:32 AM

Yeah, it’s simple alright. The 5.2M jobs created replace the same amount lost so that employment is basically the same as when Obama took office. Because that job ‘creation’ didn’t cover population growth, unemployment ballooned to 23M. And ‘demand’ from the 5.2M has caused the price of gas to more than double. A perfect example of leftist economic logic if there ever was one.

Sweet, sweet irony if an Obama campaign worker asked the assault weapon question at the debate and triggered(see what I did there?) a massive NRA mail and phone effort in Ohio and Virginia to gunowners.

I look forward to Monday’s debate. It will be the best of all the 3. Benghazi will destroy Obama/Hillary/Rice/Biden.

Their ME and N. African policies are in flames, literally and figureatively. The Arab ‘Spring’ and “leading from behind” will prove to have been devastating. They are Obama’s puppies. He can eat them now.

Greta tonight – Wisconsin Romney 48, Obama 49. A week ago Obama was ahead by 11. She attributed it to the Ryan pick.

Speaking in Mount Vernon, Iowa, Mr. Obama made his own reference to Mr. Romney’s “binders” comment, saying that there were enough talented women in the country that finding them required no special search.

Obama, then, is at odds with the MassGAP from 2003. They ‘demanded’ they be able to provide binders of women’s resumes for the victorious candidate to fill positions within the next administration.

As a real leader explained to you last night, We don’t have to settle for this. We deserve better.

My ‘visual’ of the Bmore household:

@ 1,000 and 2,000– cursing the spouse and kicking the dog

@ 3,000 and 4,000– double whiskey, then nuzzling the bottle

@ 5,000 had to change after sweating so profusely from the ‘celebration dance’

Before 5,050 ‘spiked the ball’ with about a dozen gloating posts .

As Paul Harvey would say, that’s the rest of the story…

If this was meant as witticism, you missed the mark.

If you were trying to denigrate Bmore, you would need some sort of credibility but … you don’t have any.

It clearly couldn’t be intended as humor because it just isn’t funny.

What WERE you trying for?

Bulls eyes (see what I did there?)

That actually already happened today:

The National Rifle Association, jumping on President Obama’s new and firm support for a Clinton-style assault weapons ban, is stepping up its attack on the president in Ohio, Virginia, Florida and Wisconsin with a new “we told you so” theme.

Dark Star on October 18, 2012 at 12:47 AM

Do you by chance know the words to Daisy? HAL, I can get you the lyrics HAL.

I think there is a line that goes, ‘I’m half crazy…”

Idiot, the dollar lost half its value since Obama took office. This has all prices up. Oil prices drive most all other prices of goods up.

Your meme of 5 million jobs is a lie. It doesn’t even keep up with the increase of population, as Romney lectured your moron last night. Often Obama had no clue what he was rattling off (stuffed figures from the rehearsals). He is a minus in economics. Otherwise the land would be better than under Reagan, who was “a dunce” as your said, and inherited a situation more dire than did Obama. Most of what Obama inherited was created by him, his and GWB and his. The Congress had been in leftist hands since 2006.

You are entitled to your own stupidity but not to your own facts. May you and the media suffocate from eating Obama’s sh*t, which is not Beluga caviar.
