Biden now waving binders around during his stump speech

posted at 7:21 pm on October 19, 2012 by Allahpundit

There’s video of this out there somewhere, I assume, but I’m not going to post it. That’s my concession to bipartisanship today: I’m not going to post a clip of this chortling oaf, who got elected running with a guy known for tut-tutting people about the smallness of their politics, turning prop comic to transform a dumb liberal Internet joke into a Serious Campaign Issue. Let’s leave the man with what little dignity he has left.

And I do mean “little”:

Vice President Joe Biden introduced a new prop into his stump speech on Friday: A binder.

Mocking Mitt Romney’s “binders full of women” remark at a campaign rally in Fort Pierce, Florida, Biden held up a black binder in the air as an example of the Republican candidate’s solution to gender-based pay discrimination.

I don’t think they’re really pushing the “binders” thing to try to win back women voters. Superficially that’s the reason, but it doesn’t make any sense. If you’re a woman who stayed undecided through months of “war on women” hysteria on the left and are now tilting to Romney because you liked what he said about the economy at the debates, “binders full of women” isn’t going to pull you back over the fence. David French makes a similar point about Team O’s slightly more meaningful push lately on abortion:

1. Either the president feels the need to shore up his cultural base, or he truly thinks undecided women have been waiting to see who liked abortion the most;

2. If a Republican launched a similar base-focused blitz three weeks before the election, the MSM would see that as an unmistakable sign of trouble; and

3. The MSM likely won’t report the signs of trouble because they are in part the base that’s being reassured.

Bingo. This isn’t about women, it’s about giving the left a rattle to play with to keep them preoccupied as discouraging poll numbers flood in. Even low-information voters who watched the debates probably aren’t paying close enough attention in the aftermath to follow the “binder” nonsense. That’s a meme circulating among political junkies, not among the population at large. By name-checking it at the podium, though, Obama and Biden can show their base that they’re “on offense,” that they’re hitting Romney on the stuff that the base is interested in, and so forth. It keeps liberal activists, who are doing most of the heavy lifting for them in donations and GOTV, engaged in the process even as O’s chances at reelection tick downward. And in fairness to them, there’s not a lot else for them to talk about at this point. Lord knows, they’re not going to talk about Libya; they can kinda sorta talk about our economic “recovery,” but they’re one more bad jobs report away from having that blow up in their faces. Better just to ride along on whatever hobbyhorse the left is riding right now and hope that that guarantees maximum turnout on election day.

In lieu of the binder video, via The Blaze, here’s Biden shedding a bit more dignity onstage today while a woman talked about her battle with breast cancer. Exit question: Were there no “binders full of women” in the Harvard Law Review offices when The One was president there?

Love how the breast cancer survivor noted that ObamaCare meant Obama cares about all of us. They’re so completely delusional. When we’re falling off that fiscal cliff into fiscal oblivion, necessitating either massive tax hikes and/or massive cuts to gov’t programs, hope she remembers who did a large part to get us there.

I am STILL trying to figure out what the hell the Left finds offensive about the idea of women’s resumes in binders? I mean, Romney wanted to see women to hire.

When the president gaffes he tells small business owners “you didn’t build that” and starts a real meme.

The Left is desperately attempting to match that and has decided that binders will do. They’re so myopic they can’t see that there’s a world of difference between saying “If you have a business..you didn’t build that! Somebody else made that happen!” and leaving off the word “resumes” from “binders full of women…”

One word: pathetic.

Grace_is_sufficient on October 19, 2012 at 7:44 PM

This Big Black Binder is a Big F’ing Deal. No, really. They’re just 3.99 when you also purchase two copier toner cartridges at Staples, your office supply partner.

The idiots are trying to spin it as Mitt being misogynist, that binders of women is akin to keeping them barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen (only use them when you want them). Seriously…that’s their “reasoning”.

The fact he really meant resumes and such, and wasn’t literally keeping women in binders, is lost on those that hate the man and want to believe the worst about him even if they have to go to ridiculous lengths to get there. They also can’t defend Obama, so this is ALL THEY HAVE.

Anyway, I cannot for the life of me understand why they think this one is so funny and why it is supposed to make Romney look bad. Are they saying he literally but women inside of binders? Or are resumes funny to them? That silly Romney, interviewing all those women!

Very reminiscent of the last week of the 1980 campaign. I’ll never forget the “Wonder Boy from Plains” disembarking Air Force One with an album under his arm of General Electric talks (from the 1960s) of Ronald Reagan that he characterized as the end of social security etc etc…desperation time

Bingo. This isn’t about women, it’s about giving the left a rattle to play with to keep them preoccupied as discouraging poll numbers flood in.

And it just seemed like yesterday that Obama was just starting his little adventure when things just started going wrong…Iowahawk did identify that ‘base’ quite well…

WOULD YOU LIKE TO BUY A DISTRACTION?

>TURN LEFT

DUDE.

ADVENTURER PLEASE, YOU’RE JUST EMBARRASING YOURSELF.

Really the Leftist ‘base’ has ALWAYS been this easy to distract and buy-off. And the ‘low information voters’ aren’t buying it and that junk about supporting free enterprise, that little head fake to the right, is just embarrassing himself because no one believes it and it is so very blatant after all the stuff that has already come out.

Of course the best part is that the ‘base’ can be bought off with Joe Biden. Who knew they were that low and needy? The poor dears.

Wow. Even the liberals I work with were amazed at the attention the “binders” comment is getting. They just don’t get it. Neither do I. It’s Big Bird redux. I didn’t think they could look any sillier, but there you have it!

You have to think in Russian Liberal.

The “binders” remark to a leftist conjures images of women being held captive in cellars and eventually being killed for their skin, it’s the stereotype they’ve created of everyone on the right, a herd of savages. They will be saying just that in about a week or so.

I doubt it, they are eternally creative in finding a new “squirrel.”

..wait’ll these two morons discover that they can use the red button to light up a posse of camel jockeys in the Libyan Desert and lay the blame for the Benghazi attack on them.

In lieu of the binder video, via The Blaze, here’s Biden shedding a bit more dignity onstage today while a woman talked about her battle with breast cancer.

As a nine-year survivor of breast cancer after three surgeries and the difficulties of overcoming various side affects of treatment, this behavior by Biden is the singular most repulsive thing I have every witnessed by a V.P.

Seriously, WTH is wrong with him?
