Did anyone watch this last night? All I've been hearing about all morning is Romney's "binders full of women" comment.

Gawd, he's so out of touch with with so many peoples reality!

The question linked to that comment was would he stand up for equal pay for all women. He didn't answer it, but went on about how he filled his cabinet as gov. with women he went to all lengths to find! I had to infer that giving women flexible schedules so they can get dinner on the table and take care of the kids was in loo of equal pay.

He skirted most every question, and gave a lot of half truths. Like when the president spoke in favor of making contraception covered by every insurance, saying Mitt was against it, Mitt interrupts with "I'm in favor of all women having access to contraception". Access, yes, coverage-no. And certainly not the morning after pill.

Same with immigration.

 

Here's a great ad done by Rosie Perez in response to his "I'd have it easier if I was Latino" comment:

Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good
