Mitt Romney still won’t say whether he’d stand up for equal pay, but he did tell us he has “binders full of women.” OFA.BO/LMVWmZ

Is this the communication from a presidential administration or from a middle school boy?
During the second presidential debate with Romney, Obama told us his solution to work place issues for women: Birth Control.
Romney’s answer was more substantive, telling of his efforts to recruit competent female advisors and staffers into his admininistration while governor of Massachusetts.
The snippy little Obama Tweet made an issue of Romney’s referral to the applicant data presented to him during the recruitment process.
Are women going to be impressed by Obama’s suggestion of birth control to make women a more secure place in the work world, or Romney’s practice of offering flex-time benefits to recruit the best female workers?
The Weekly Standard Blog reviews articles from the Washington Post and Time Magazine, reminding us that Obama’s own administration is a Boys Club. (No, they did not say Man’s Country).
Over and above bad feelings experienced by the women in the Obama administration, hard data reigns supreme. Obama signed a bill regarding women’s pay in the work place, but he’s never been able to provide parity in pay or representation for women, whether in his own senate staff, or his own white house administration.
