What is your opinion of Romney's "Binders Full of Women" remark?


At the second presidential debate, a female audience member asked Romney about his plans to bring about equality in the workplace. His response was that he went to Women's groups and asked for qualified applicants. His remark was that they gave him "Binders Full of Women". Was this a valid point and phrase, or did Romney slip up?

    It make me think of Romney's casual comment about buying a factory in China where the women workers lived 12 to a dorm room with one bathroom and made $2 a day. He seemed uninterested, as if fairness for women just isn't an issue for him.
