I have to imagine that the Obama campaign will be able to pull a bunch of clips from Tuesday’s presidential debate to help voters understand what the real Mitt Romney thinks. The debates are about moments and Romney was more than generous providing moments that help us better grasp what he’s all about.
In this clip below, at the Obama-Biden website, in which Romney talks about the now-famous lady binders, he fails to talk about pay discrimination for women.
Here’s what the campaign had to say about it:
At the second presidential debate, President Obama showed his continued commitment to progress for women. Meanwhile, Mitt Romney didn’t offer a single policy or solution when asked about the problem of pay discrimination, just anecdotes. While the President talked about women as breadwinners, Romney talked about them as resumes in “binders”.
In a follow-up question, one of Romney’s top advisors claimed that the Governor opposed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act in 2009. Watch this video and share it with your friends to show why Romney is too extreme for women.
