How I Felt: Romney's Binders Full Of Women
As I watched last Tuesday's debate, I Iaughed when Romney said the words "binders full of women".Prospective employers in my area say, "binders full of resumes of women applicants" or something to that effect. When Romney said his now infamous choice of words, I imagined Romney looking through his "binder of women" with un-pious thoughts racing through his mind. Nothing else of the debate mattered.
Congrats, Mr. Romney. You kept me distracted during the entire debate.
Now that I think of it: Romney's inability to network with women surprises me. All successful business men I've met often know a handful of women (at least) to fill important and difficult job positions. Networking is a basic skill in business and politics. I'm very surprised Romney didn't already know at least one woman to place on his gubernatorial cabinet. I wonder: Are his personal beliefs about women limiting his ability to do his job?
FYI: I'm voting for Obama because he knows how to network.
