'Bindergate:' Evidence Obama is Losing?

Only a libtard could make something out of this. It is quite clear to anyone with more than two brain cells that what Romney meant was that he told his staff to go out and find some qualified women to apply for cabinet posts and they brought him back a binder filled with pertinent information on a number of women with the right qualifications.

One "news" organization (Majority Report) cavils that Mitt got a binder of resumes which had already been prepared by a bipartisan team... and that oh for shame, the number of women in the Massachusetts executive dwindled slightly with time and that Mitt "refused" to staff his "favorite" (whatever that was) agencies with women.

This is the way they talk in the world of business. A binder of para-legals, realtors, architects, etc. etc.
These liberals just don't get it because in their world it is all touchy, feeling based and emotional.

The comment, sure that's fair. Of course it turns out that he did nothing of the sort. Not even close. And while he started with a high percentage of women in key positions, the number eroded to a dismal 25% by the time he was done. What the liberals are pointing out is that our man Romney can't seem to utter a truthful word. It's clear he'll say anything thing at all to get elected. Yeah, I'm sure Obama does some of the same, and perhaps all politicians are scumbags, but Romney is setting a new bar for sleaze.

Care to spell out what Mitt actually did wrong? He cooperated with the "binders of women" scheme and said so? Those who cavil about the dwindling number of women might consider that more Republican women might actually have a life.

I think the libs are still trying to figure out if they meant 2 OR 3 ring binders.

SHHHH!! That doesn't fit the Democrats agenda so we can't talk about it.

Katie and Cortney have already touched on this brewing "controversy," but I suspect the smallness of the issue -- if you can call it that -- is actually indicative of something larger.  The Left's fixation on Mitt Romney's turn of phrase "women full of binders" in the second debate may represent the pettiest and most trivial chapter of this entire campaign.  And yes, I'm fully aware of the fact that we've witnessed multiple attacks centered around Romney's pets.  At first, I viewed "binders" as a transitory lefty internet meme-generator and twitter sensation....
