    Another Romney Lie!


    .

    So, Romney didn't initiate asking for qualified women to serve in his admin, he was GIVEN the names by women's groups.

    hummmm..methinks you are missing the point-




    snip-

    Between January 2002 and July 2004, 42% of the new gubernatorial appointments made by Governor Mitt Romney were women. Massachusetts was widely recognized for that achievement and MassGAP was given credit for it. In a survey by the State University of New York (SUNY), Massachusetts was ranked first in the nation in the percentage of women holding top state positions. As the Boston Globe noted at that time, "Women fill 10 of 20 top positions in Governor Mitt Romney's administration, making the Commonwealth one of five states that come close to matching the percentage of top women appointees to the proportion of women in the overall population."



    so does he get credit or not? The issue womans right and workplace activity jobs etc....did he make a concerted effort to hire woman hire woman abundantly? the answre is' yes, he did.

    sure, he gets credit for appointing women to cabinet positions he either cared nothing about or wanted to eliminate.

    As I recall the question, Romney was asked about equal pay for equal work and he totally failed to address any aspect of that specific question whatsoever. All he did was blather on about how he was all in favor of jobs for women. That's not what he was asked about.

    What he should have said was how he planned to initiate legislation to insure equal pay for equal work by women, that kind of thing. He didn't do that.

    During Willard's time at Bain, there were no women in leadership.

    CROWLEY: Governor Romney, pay equity for women?

    None of the senior positions Romney cared about -- budget, business development, etc. -- went to women.

    I kind of expected that.

    When that particular question and answer was over, I looked at my wife and said, "Is there any doubt in your mind that Mitt Romney could not care less about women, has nothing but basic contempt for women and does not consider them as anywhere near equal to men?" She immediately answered: "None."

    I really have to laugh at the Republican Party's nominee getting up in front of the nation to talk about equality for women in the workplace. The Republican Party has a long and well-known history of putting women down. They think that women belong in the kitchen and the bedroom, not the workplace. Ask any conservative how they feel about the women's liberation movement. Ask any conservative what he thinks about a woman being free to do with her own body what she wishes. Ask any conservative what they think about druggists who refuse to sell birth control pills for their own, religious reasons - they are all for it.

    The Republican Party - Friend to Women. Don't make me laugh.

    Willard did lie about the binders!!!

    Mitt Romney’s Binders Full of Women is a Trapper Keeper Full of Lies

    About those binders full of women that Romney asked for and staffed up with – it’s not true. Romney never asked for those binders. So, not only was the comment strikingly offensive in its insensitivity, but it was used as a get out of jail free card from a question about equal pay and it’s not true.

    Furthermore, his record on employing women in the private sector doesn’t back up his claims from last night and a Romney adviser said today that the Republican presidential candidate would not have supported the Lilly Ledbetter Act. So much for binders full of women sufficing for being a champion of women’s rights.

    Turns out, before Romney even took office, a bipartisan group of women in Massachusetts got together in order to address the problem of few women in senior leadership positions in state government. They put the binders full of women’s resumes together. They presented the binders to Romney when he took office.

    But that didn’t stop Romney from telling a story last night in which White Knight Mitt Romney rode into the equal pay world with “binders full of women” and staffed up of his own accord.

    No, Romney did not go to the women’s groups and ask for help – they came to him with binders full of women’s resumes, proving the women were qualified for the many positions he would be appointing. It follows that most likely Romney also never said to his staff, “How come all the people for these jobs are — are all men.” And it further follows that even if he had, he should have known better than to refer to women candidates as “binders full of women” as if he were picking a mail order bride instead of looking at resumes.
