TPM: Republicans Try To Seize Control Of The Word ‘Binder’ Following Debate
McMorris-Santoro October 17, 2012, 1:35 PM 35348
Despite the immediate and mostly mocking internet reaction to Mitt Romneys binders full of women remark during the debate at Hofstra Tuesday night, Republicans appear determined to turn binders into a metaphorical theme of the campaign.
The Republican National Committee hosted a conference call Wednesday amidst reports that binders full of women was the third most popular Google search term after the debate and tried to claim the binder-based attack as its own.
The press release for the conference call advertised that RNC chair Reince Priebus and Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) would talk about Obamas empty binder second term agenda. They were true to their word.
Obama didnt lay out a plan for a second term agenda. Hes had two debates, hes offered plenty of excuses but he hasnt offered a plan, Priebus said. And thats what were calling the empty binder. So either hes out of ideas or he likes the way that things are going.
Romneys binder metaphor came up during a discussion of women in the workplace and pay equality. Romney said he had sought and received binders full of women to consider when deciding who to appoint to his cabinet after being elected as governor. Ayotte defended Romneys record on women, and attacked Obamas. She also used the binder metaphor against Obama. Twice.
On this empty binder issue, its the president who has the empty binder because theres no legislation planned for the second term other than more spending. And how are we going to afford that given our $16 trillion in debt? she said.

God, I do loathe that little twerp.
Reince - honestly dude, get with the 90's already and put the wimmen on a freaking floppy disk.
As of now, Binders Full of Women has 1,126 "likes" on facebook. And it's full of funny memes.
As long as Mitt's mouth is moving, they'll be in a state of perpetual damage control.
when Willard has not provided details for anything.
They are pathetically lame.
Nice try, though, GOP. All your binder comments are belong to us.
With Dumbya's years such a fresh memory, that's saying something. [url=http://www.cosgan.de/smilie.php][img][/img][/url]
