Mitt Romney — Horndog: “Gimme a Binder Full of Women!”
And what the fuck, you ask, is “a binder full of women?” Got me. You’ll have to ask Mitt Romney himself. But first, ask Ann to leave the room for a moment.
Actually, he used this term when he was describing something magnanimous he had done as governor of “my state” (is he unable to pronounce the word “Massachusetts”?) that enabled “a binder full of women” to apply for jobs they previously weren’t qualified for. Or something.
And speaking of pronunciations, a certain word is pronounced “legislation,” not “lettuce-lation.”
And now, on to the implosion — collapse! — of Mitt Romney’s over-used talking points about the terrorist attacks in Benghazi. You know the drill: Obama was so busy apologizing for America, his administration let its guard down and allowed four Americans to be killed at the American Embassy in Benghazi, Libya. And the Obama Administration was so oblivious and unaware, it took them two weeks to find out it was a terrorist attack and not a spontaneous demonstration.
And in tonight’s debate, Obama pulled the rug out from under Romney. President Obama did in fact — the day AFTER the attacks in Benghazi — describe the attacks as a terrorist attack.
Actually, it’s a bit more of a he-said she-said kind of thing. Here are some links.
One liberal site says “President Obama DID call it a terrorist attack the day after Benghazi,” but no link is provided. A rightwing site admits that Obama DID use the word “terror” in his speech at the Rose Garden the day after the Benghazi attack, but claims “terror” isn’t the same as “terrorist” or “act of terrorism,” or it didn’t count because it was Wednesday and he wasn’t wearing a blue shirt, or something.
In any case, when Obama said he HAD used the word “terrorist” in the Rose Garden press conference the day after the Benghazi attack, and said to Candy Crowly “check the transcript” — Mitt Romney’s reaction was panic bordering on Meltdown. Jaw quivering uncontrollably, “but but B- badeea badeea hummina hummina,” and that panic-stricken expression that said “but that’s what they told me to say!”
Melt down gracefully, Mitt. Buh bye now.
Obama also called attention to Romney’s behind-closed-doors comments about 47% of Americans being moochers who think of themselves as victims, and Romney’s flipflops on immigration and taxes, among other issues.
I can’t pretend to be objective, but I think Obama won this debate.
