Rush destroys the loons trying to make hay out of this...
RUSH: Now, ladies, I want to ask you a question. I know that the
ladies, the women in this audience, are informed, and you're educated.
You are knowledgeable. Some of you work. Some of you are mothers. Some
of you are wives. Some of you are all of those. You know that this
nation is on the brink of disaster. You know that we're no longer
predicting what will happen with X-number of years of liberalism. We are
We are beyond the tipping point.
We're in the middle of it.
Today's welfare numbers prove it beyond the shadow of a doubt.
You know this. You know, along with everybody else, that we're on the
brink of disaster. You are fully aware of the seriousness of our
economic situation and our overall circumstance as a nation. Not only
are there people in the country who can't find jobs, but also the
economic impacts on our place in the world, how it affects our safety.
You know all this.
You women this audience are fully aware of all of this, and I'd love
to know... Because the women in this audience are as involved as the
men. They are as up to speed, they are as knowledgeable, they are as
passionate. You know you are. Maybe, in some cases more so. And I'd like
to know what it feels like to be insulted every day by the president of
the United States and his minions in the media.
The insult today is a small comment made by Mitt Romney to illustrate
how eager he was to find qualified women when he was governor of
Massachusetts. It has been blown up into a comment that they're trying
to make you believe makes Romney a sexist. This binder comment that he made and now how the president and the vice president and the media are running with this?
News, the Nightly News, and the Today show today had a story: "Romney's
'Binders' Comment Shows He 'Doesn't Have Any Leg to Stand On' With
Women." I'd like to know from women: What is it like to be this insulted
every day? The president of our country and the major media in this
country every day insult you by telling you things that you apparently
don't know about what Republicans want to do to you.
And how they look at you. And the things they want to make you do.
And you're no different than just a loose-leaf binder. What's it like to
be routinely insulted like this? What's it like to be targeted in a way
that makes you feel like they think you don't even have a brain. And
then to hear that these people, the ones who are insulting your
intelligence, are the ones be who "really" are looking out for you?
What is it like to have to put up with this infantile wording from the president and the media every day during this campaign?
RUSH: This binder business is up next, and we have nothing but women
on the phones, Snerdley tells me. So if you're on the phone, I want you
to be patient 'cause I'm gonna get to you as quickly as I can. Just to
set this binder business up: What happened is, after he was elected
governor of Massachusetts, Romney wanted to increase the number of women
applicants for his administration. Because, as he said in the debate,
when he looked around the office and he didn't see very many.
And he realized that that wasn't good.
There's some talent out there that wasn't being tapped. So he went to a nonpartisan women's group, a group called MassGAP,
and they supplied him with binders filled with resumes from women. So
when you hear the word "binder" out of the mouth of that idiot Biden or
the clueless Obama, they're trying to insult your intelligence by
thinking they can make you hate this man. When all he wanted to do was
find qualified women and hire them. I hope your intelligence is
This is how I feel every day dealing with liberals.
Every day the media insult my intelligence.
I can't imagine what this War on Women has been like for you women in
this audience 'cause I know you're up to speed, you're informed, you're
educated, you care every bit as much as any man does about the future
of this country, and maybe in certain circumstances you care more. Maybe
you're the only breadwinner, single mother or whatever, but you care
about the price of gas. You're not out there worried about binders and
this rotgut, contraceptives, as though that's what defines you as a
Look at how the left and look at how the Democrat Party thinks of you
as a woman. They're the ones that demean you. Your life revolves
around a contraception pill. Your life revolves around having somebody
else pay for it. Your life, that's all you care about, and now you're
gonna be insulted because some guy asks for a bunch of resumes in
binders, and a nonpartisan women's group supplied him with the binders?
Romney didn't say, "Get me some binders with women in there." He asked
for resumes of qualified women. They brought them to him in binders.
And according to its own written statement, the MassGAP, that's the
coalition of women's groups led by something called the Massachusetts
Women's Political Caucus, made the binders in an effort to pressure
Romney and his Democrat challenger to appoint women if they were
elected. Well, Romney was, and he got the binders. And for the record,
this women's group, MassGAP, ended up applauding Romney in 2006 for
increasing female appointments to state government. Liz Levin,
the chairwoman of the group, said "I think Romney put more terrific
women into high level jobs because of our project." So what's the
problem here? George W. Bush had more high-ranking important women in
his administration than Bill Clinton, the great lover of women, did, or
that Obama does.
