Did Romney undo gains with women voters?

Full story: CNN

Obama and Democrats rush to paint Romney as someone who doesn't have the best interests of women in mind But his comments about using "whole binders full of women" as a hiring aid while governor, whiffing on an equal pay law question, and alluding to helping women get home to cook dinner has landed the GOP presidential hopeful in verbal quicksand ...

There should not be a woman with an ounce of brain that would have taken offense to what Romney said. Women are family first and career second. Romney had no women working in his office and he went out and got some that were qualified - does that sound like a woman hater? The Dems think women are STUPID and have no value and are NOT shown respect. Ask Obama about his SLUTS FOR OBAMA.

You don't have a clue how much Romney lies.

For instance, he said he was a pastor in his church to garner the Christian vote. WRONG! He was a Bishop and holds the priesthood like every other worthy LDS male. LIE! Shall I continue?

A female member of the Mormon faith is encouraged to marry, make babies and be a stay-at-home mom catering to her husband. This is the culture Romney was raised in.

I'm not even going to go into all the other lies. Since I don't particularly like Obama, I'll probably vote Libertarian.

Grow up sister - Romney thinks women are less than men.

I have had 4 years of Obama lies and if he stays in office America will become a 3rd world country. Obama was the one that stated that Romney hated women. If Romney though women were less than men he would not have made the effort to go find qualified women to work with him. Obama pay's his females less than he does his male workers - of course they will tell you they have more responsibility - like playing golf when he wants to play. All the Mormon's do not have many wives - Romney has only had one. I have never heard Romney refer to himself as a pastor - I have heard him refer to himself as a Bishop. Your telling me you would rather have a MUSLIM in the WH over a MORMON? Obama is turning America into a Sodom and Gomorrah with his same sex marriage, which is an abomination against the Bible.

All of the women in my family also said they are voting for Romney - they said they are sick of Obama's lies that he is working on jobs, as they told me you can not make jobs on the golf range or on vacation or on the View or on Letterman.

When Obama said, "He will take us to a better place" -- it was really creepy. To be "in a better place" is a euphamism for death.

Just really weird, out-of-touch, verbiage.

Obama must be sent back to Rev Wright and Chicago
I simply cant have him as my countries POTUS anymore

It's certain you don't know what you're talking about.

You know nothing about Romney. He claimed to be a pastor last night. Listen to the debate.

But, guess we should all take your word on it, huh.

If God existed, he would not allow you to argue his case him.

You need to stop trying to tell people what they believe, you asshole.

Besides, you're dumb.

For those who don't know binders are people who bind a group together so I think that helped Romney. What he was saying is that he finds the best qualified people while Obama was just pandering to women when he chose Hillary, Rice, etc.

Romney did say he had pastored his church last night during the debate. But I believe the word bishop and pastor are relatively the same. Both entail some of the same duties. So he was not lieing when he said that. As far as votes from women, Romney defiantly gain there votes last night. My family usely block votes. 2008 was the first split we had in voting with 16 voting for Obama and 12 voting McCain . We met this past week end and all agreed we would vote Romney.

Democrats think Women are stupid. They don't trust Obama. He lied to them. He mistreats his own female staff by paying them less then the men on his staff. Women want secure jobs, equal pay, and resapect. They didn't get that from Obama, and they are smart enough to vote Romney instead.

Racist Bigoted Elected Officials:

USA Labor Law, The Constitution, and demands of Natural Law: what Mother Nature, God, or Whatever Power decreed to be the reality of the real world, democracy, capitalism, the US Constitution, and free, fair, and affordable commerce and common sense demands.

Every Stockholder, corporation, farmer, business, outsourcer sweatshop, and nonprofit, tax-exempt, organization and Church; markets the cost in the wholesale and retail price of his or her product and service; of every worker, consumer, and taxpayer's wages (union contract), healthcare, pension, investment and independent business profit. This enables every worker, consumer, and taxpayer to pay healthcare insurance premium or pay healthcare provider. Pay ALL taxes and pay for every product and service they use for life. With money derived from wages, investment profit, and independent business profit. And enables every parent to educate, love, nurse, nurture, discipline, protect, and provide; for every child (job) they conceive. And fund schools, infrastructure, local and national security, government services, and etc.; with money derived from wages, investment profit, and independent business profit.

USA Labor Law, The Constitution, and Reality demands; The majority of 53% of US the Government of this Representative Republic that vote and the 47% nonvoters that sit on their dead hands and whine; send racist, bigoted, President, Governor, and every Representative of US the Government, County Commissioners, Township Trustees, Mayors, City Council, School Administrators and Board Members packing.

That supports disqualifying Fathers with white skin for affirmative action; and holds Union workers, consumers, taxpayers, and America’s grandchildren’s children, Government employees, Parents, Teachers, Veterans, Police, Firemen, and Fathers disqualified for affirmative action with white skin, Representatives deny Collective Bargaining Rights accountable.

To fund Illegal drug users and Immigrants, lottery, casino, and keno losers, unemployed Union workers replaced with nonunion workers, Human Traffickers, waitresses that pander for life for $2.00 per hour, slaves in enterprise zones, low-income child labor, consumers, and taxpayers, volunteers without wages, and nonunion workers willing to work for fewer wages than they can afford life. That pays with welfare checks, food stamps, housing vouchers, and Medicaid.

You hit this right on the head.

Romney is a business man and Obama is a Chicago thug and he just does not understand the language of the business people nor does he understand how they work - you can not generate jobs on the View or on Dave Letterman.

What is really sad is the women that just do not understand that Romney went out of his way to get women to work with them and Obama turned it into a joke. It is like the women are following Obama to the river to be drowned.

No he didn't. He lied yet again to make it seem like he did.

Romney’s account of that story is false, according to two women who led an effort in 2002 to recruit female candidates to high-level appointed positions in Massachusetts. MassGAP, a bipartisan coalition of women’s groups dedicated to increasing the number of women appointed to top government jobs, approached Romney and his Democratic challenger Shannon O’Brien before the 2002 gubernatorial election and pressured them to sign a pledge to appoint more women if elected.

“It was an initiative of women’s organizations, not to force [Romney’s] hand, but to make it be something he had to follow through on,” Carol Hardy-Fanta, former co-chair of MassGAP’s higher education subcommittee, told The Huffington Post the morning following the debate. "He didn't go out looking for these binders.”

I read this and it sounds like one woman who did not get the job she wanted and now is striking back at Romney. Women do not realize that he did not have to ask for binders or even hire a woman - he could have said NONE WERE QUALIFIED - just like Obama passes the buck on Hillary and Rose. I know some women are business smart and then I know some women who think they are business smart.
