In August, Mitt Romney’s “Corporations are people” gaffe raised lots of eyebrows.
In Tuesday night’s presidential debate, Romney’s “binders full of women” remark in response to a woman’s question about equal pay, immediately went viral.
“The phrase was part of Romney's answer to a question from an audience member at the second presidential debate about how he would "rectify the inequalities in the workplace." Referring to when he took over as Massachusetts governor, he said, "I had the chance to pull together a Cabinet, and all the applicants seemed to be men," he said. "I went to a number of women's groups and said, 'Can you help us find folks?' and they brought us whole binders full of women."
“Even as a slip of the tongue, this odd phrase betrays Romney's true lack of understanding, knowledge and comfort level on women's equality. And besides the binders comment, there are several problems with the story Romney told Tuesday night. First of all, it’s not true.”
