No Carol, Romney didn't go out of his way to hire women. His "binders full of women" statement was just one of many lies he told during the campaign. The "binder" of women's résumés was prepared before the election by the Massachusetts Government Appointments Project, a coalition of nonpartisan women's groups. When Romney won, the women -- not in binders -- gave him the résumés.
A study by the University of Massachusetts and the Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy shows that the percentage of women in senior positions during his tenure actually declined. It went from 30% when Romney took office to 27% when he left and up to more than 33% after the new governor took over.

But go ahead and keep living in that alternate universe.
That's funny...because a liberal woman on Fox said her company was contacted by Romney in seeking qualified women to serve on his cabinet and she bomblasted the juvenile criticism by liberals because of the terminology to describe a professional portfolio often referred to as a binder.

You liberals really need to stop picking at scabs and worry more about excising the cancer in your party's ideology.

I guess that's your critical judgement on the low morals of many South Carolina voters? Thanks for confirming my suspicions . South Carolina voters would rather forgive adultery, breaking and entering, lying, sloth, greed and sexual perversion in Mark Sanford then vote for honesty, respect, successful business values in Elizabeth Colbert-Busch.

<quoted text> And yet, John Galt , the American way of government to 'pick winners and losers' to make this the wealthy , great and powerful country that it is today has been tradition since George Washington's time. Even President George Washington 'picked winners and losers ' in getting the Erie Canal built that opened the West to the pioneers , economic development, and progress. If government's picking winners and losers works and it sure as hell did work in America to make us all the wealthiest people on the Earth then why not?
The Erie Canal was first proposed in 1807, long after George Washington was dead.

The liberals are in full-scale mode spin cycle in the hearings that are about to start.

The panel is right now giving opening statements and already a few liberals are exhibiting symptoms of having taken spin steroids this morning.

The beauty of liberal indignation is that when they are obviously on the defensive, they just dig themselves deeper and deeper.

"Dereliction of duty is an impeachable offense. But this is the most gross dereliction of duty under these circumstances from a commander in chief and his immediate subordinates that I ever remember seeing in my experience. And we haven't gotten an explanation — if there were coherent reasons why no action was taken."

<quoted text> Yes, Jimmy , Sanford wins and it's Springtime for adulterers and criminals. Mark Sanford was an adulterer, a criminal(broke into his ex-wife's home), committed malfeasance while Governor( ran off to screw his Argentina skank without informing his staff or the state legislature that he left the country then lied about it), and Sanford supported Mitt Romney who made tons of money off of his Bain Capital company SteriCycle (medical waste business) after Romneycare that offers free abortions on demand passed in Massachusetts. Yeah, right, Mark Sanford is as much a 'family values' guy as Newt 'the snake' Gingrich! LOL

Republicans aren't digging themselves a deeper hole? "And the ironic beauty of Republican indignation is that they can't even find the time to read bills that they propose. LOL!!!Robert Rector, the Heritage Foundation senior research fellow who co-authored the right-wing think tank’s heavily disputed study on immigration reform, admitted Tuesday that he hasn’t actually read the bill in question.

Rector made waves Monday with his report that the Senate “Gang of Eight” immigration reform bill would cost taxpayers a minimum of $6.3 trillion. That conclusion was immediately criticized by a wide range of Rector’s fellow conservatives such as Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI), and the Cato Institute, which called Rector’s methodology “fatally flawed.”

One of Cato’s chief complaints is that Rector ignored the historical evidence suggesting that immigrants’ wages would increase dramatically after they are legalized. Rector responded to that criticism at a Heritage Foundation event — after admitting that “I have not examined the whole bill yet.”Check this out: http://www.nationalmemo.com/heritage-immigrat...

The right wing loons have no real argument so the lie.
So you don't mind if Obama invests "our" money on risky ventures that fail but criticize Romney and investment firms who use their own money for the same purpose?

Difference being, investment firms lose their own money if a company fails and make a profit only if the companies succeed.

Please explain this double standard of yours.

I just read it. To say TP is stretching on some of those is an understatement. Let's look at the first one
Minority Leader Boehner:“The stated intent of the so-called stimulus package was to create jobs, and certainly a $57 million slush-fund studying projects did nothing to achieve that goal. With Ohio’s unemployment rate the highest it’s been in 25 years, I’m pleased that federal officials stepped in to order Ohio to use all of its construction dollars for shovel-ready projects that will create much-needed jobs.”
How is that taking credit? In fact, it's repeating the "shovel ready" lie.
you'll need to keep trying.

Republican Stimulus Hypocrisy: They Knew it Would Work

According to this morning's exposé in the Washington Times, those very same Republican members of Congress who publicly condemned the 2009 stimulus bill--insisting to us all that it would neither stimulate the economy nor create jobs--privately believed just the opposite. These GOP representatives and senators were so sure that the stimulus bill would be effective, in fact, that they could not get to their desks fast enough to start peppering the federal government with requests for projects in their districts.

Did you have any worries about supporting Newt Gingrich, Larry Craig, even Michigan's Thaddeus McCotter and other Republicans charged with election fraud? "It turns out that the Republican Party’s obsession with voter fraud may be yet another case of projection. Four former staffers for resigned House Rep. Thaddeus McCotter have been charged with 36 counts of misdemeanor and felony election fraud. Yesterday one of those staffers, Lorianne O’Brady, pled not guilty to five misdemeanor counts of submitting fraudulent signatures on a ballot petition. O’Brady is the last of the four staffers to be arraigned; the other three, Don Yowchuang, Mary Melissa Turnbull, and Paul Seewald, were arraigned on similar charges on August 10th." ..."And this is the truth about so many Republican policies: rules and regulations are put in place to scapegoat people who aren’t causing problems. In Florida, drug testing welfare recipients showed that less than 3% of those receiving welfare were using drugs illegally, while that discriminatory testing cost the state nearly $120,000. Mitt Romney has evoked the “47% of people [who] pay no income tax,” conveniently ignoring that collecting income tax from all of those households would bring in less than than the president’s Buffett Rule which would slightly raise taxes for the country’s wealthiest. Reagan’s racist welfare queen myth still looms large in the conservative narrative, despite the fact that the Bush-era bailout for corrupt and irresponsible banks cost far more than years of welfare programs.
