As Twitchy reported, at tonight’s debate, an “uncommitted” voter questioned the candidates about the so-called “wage disparity” between men and women. In his response, Romney touted his record when it comes to employing women in his cabinet. He mentioned how he and his staff actively sought out women to fill vacant positions, remarking on the binders full of potential female job candidates:

Rather than pay attention to his message, however, liberals seized the opportunity to pounce on Romney for his word choice. The #bindersfullofwomen hashtag quickly took off, trending nationally and showcasing the Left’s misplaced priorities:

Several Twitter accounts quickly sprang up, along with a Tumblr page:

And a Facebook page.

Romney admittedly could have found a better way to say what he said, but the fact remains that he actually is concerned with women’s employment. And, if yesterday’s USA Today/Gallup poll is any indication, women believe that he’s the candidate who will help them get back to work.

    Women in Romney’s Cabinet in MA: Lt. Governor, a woman chief of staff, half of the cabinet and senior officials. I can’t remember the lady’s name, but I saw one of them at the RNC Convention who is a Dem but loves him. The left mocks but what does Obama do but use Hillary as a doormat.

    Obama needs #bindersfullofwomen to throw under the bus, pass the buck to and their skirts to hide behind
