Something to keep in mind as Obama rages on over Romney’s “binder” debate comment.
President Barack Obama falsely criticized Mitt Romney’s record of hiring and promoting women. However, his White House pays women less than men. Worse, The White House has been described as a “hostile workplace,” by his own female debate coach — Anita Dunn, who used to be the White House Communications Director.
Obama said on Tuesday at campaign events in Iowa and Ohio, “I’ve got to tell you, we don’t have to collect a bunch of binders to find qualified, talented, driven young women, ready to learn and teach in these fields right now.”
Obama was referring to comments Mitt Romney made during the second presidential debate when Romney said he actively sought and recruited qualified women for high-level positions and in the recruiting process he would wind up with “binders full of women.”
Update per Yahoo News! political reporter Chris Moody:
Obama has mentioned “binders” in every campaign appearance since the debate so far. A new fixture in the stump speech.
