Just the facts....

Mitt Romney certainly doesn't like being challenged. I believe that Romney was downright rude and disrespectful to President Obama during the most recent debate. Romney was also very demeaning to Candy Crowley, the moderator. Mr. Romney may have been some big shot CEO or king at  Bain Capital, and he may have a ton of money, but he was just plain rude.

Sounds like Mitt Romney's story about the "binders of women" is another one of his lies.  The NY Times has the details.

>>>  Although Romney and Ryan have stated that they would like to deny women birth control pills, destroy Planned Parenthood, and decide what types of gynecological procedures women can have, they still don't understand women's concerns about contraception.


Not long ago, GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney's wife Ann Romney refused to comment on whether women should have access to contraception in their employer insurance plans.

"You're asking me questions that are not about what this election is going to be about," she said. "This election is going to be about the economy and jobs."

Earth to Ann. Contraception is a huge economic issue for women....

Women care about contraception and are incredibly upset that Republicans continue to dismiss women and their need for answers. It is insulting that Republicans refuse to openly discuss what they would cut in women's health. Republicans also have been on the WRONG side of equal pay for equal work. If a woman is equal to a man in qualifications and experience, she should be paid the same as her male counterpart. It is only fair.  Unfortunately, Romney, Ryan, Republican candidate Josh Mandel, and the entire Republican party have no use for pay equity, let alone have an honest discussion concerning it.

*****  Mitt Romney, In His Own Words, is a must see video.  Romney, who makes $450,000/week, clearly disrespects our community safety workers, their work and the dedication they display every single day.
