Battle of the binders: President Obama and Joe Biden jab at Romney's comments on women

Both candidates are on the trail again today. Both of them will be in new York City tonight for an annual Catholic Charity Dinner.

Yesterday President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden were all about the "binders," attacking Mitt Romney for his comments about women in the last debate.

Governor Bob McDonnell of Virginia is the Chair of the republican Governor's Association and a Romney campaign supporter weighs in.

    This "binder" thing. The word in itself used with relation to women recruitment is disgusting and laughable at the same time. However, Romney's story behind his having these binders is the real verifiable story – HE LIED ABOUT HOW HE RECEIVED THESE BINDERS OF QUALIFIED WOMEN!! The binders of women were done long before he became Govenor of Massachusetts; they were put together when he was running for Govenor and both he and his opponent were given these binders of women prior to the end of the election. Romney is lying about this and his lying has been verified from at least two staff people from the group that put the information together. All CNN seems to be able to talk about is how popular the binder issue has become on social media – the laughable side of the binder issue. He out and out lied – doesn't CNN care anything about Romney's lies? Come On Folks – Romney lies and lies and lies – never to have CNN call him out on them. What will it take for CNN to take an honest view of Romney and Ryan?

    Here a comment from a forme binder lady. Teach your son respect Romney. You do not ever think about hitting the President of the United States. So you teaching those type ethics to your son and want him in the White House? No, let a real women tell you hit the Presiden if you dare and Michelle Obama will show you what a powerful Black women and wife will do from Chicago. It will not be pretty at all nor will it be from us 47%ers and binders at the polls. As a matter of fact we starte a Binder Effect Campaign to Obama for a mere $10.00 amd $20. 00 for knock out punch for Michelle to you Tagg old boy. How is that for creative business solutions.
