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 ...

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.
You pulling my leg aren't you? He didn't ask for them at all. It was presented to him by this organization.

Go back and read it again and do not worship Obama while reading it. Again have you ever seen Romney degrade a WOMAN in any way shape or fashion?- he would not allow women to wear SLUTS for Romney as he would NOT want women to degrade themselves just to get him votes.

Romney is doing just fine with women, and everyone else as well. He is getting 57% of the vote to Obama's 45% in the Gallup poll today.

Its Obama that does not give his women equal pay that he gives the men. He also likes women to degrade themselves with SLUTS FOR OBAMA. Only an idiot would vote for Obama with his past record. A lot of us are tired of him playing "rock star" we want him to earn his pay and he has not even kept the chair warm in the WH.

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.

Romney used the binders to hire, and promote women at Bain. Keith Ellison gave Obama a binder, It had 47 names of potential Muslim hires. They think there are not enough muslims in our government. That is like hiring the Germans, and the Japanese in the second world war. It is a stupid thing to do.

<quoted text> 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.
You're dumb.

A LDS pastor is not like a bishop you moron. Romney was trying to connect with the Religious Right. He changes his story everyday. In the debate, he was flat ass rude to the president.

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.
Another idiot without a clue concerning the LDS culture. Romney thinks women should be barefoot and pregnant, dunce. He's not for women's rights.

You're dumb.

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.
Ya, right. And that's why Obama made a woman Secretary of State. Moron.

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.”

Great post! Romney wants to return to the 1950s when women were paid less than men. He doesn't give two shits about women.

Morons like you give women a bad name. The Democratic party platform endorses women's rights. The Republican party platform wants to retain the good-old-boy system where men rule. But, you're too dumb to understand that.
