Obama, Romney seek support from women

(Continued)

Vice President Joe Biden’s first stop of the day was in Greeley, Colo., where he mocked Romney on the same topic but in terms more pungent than Obama’s. “What I can’t understand is how he’s gotten into this sort of 1950s time warp in terms of women,” Biden said. “The idea he had to go and ask where a qualified woman was. He just should have come to my house. He didn’t need a binder.”

Republican Rep. Paul Ryan was in Berea, Ohio, where he said women were suffering under the economy as the end of Obama’s term nears. “Twenty-six million women are trapped in poverty today. That’s the highest rate in 17 years,” he said. “We need to get people back to work.”

In a lighter moment, he stopped by the football practice facility of the Cleveland Browns and lamented missing out on hunting season this fall. “I’ve got this election thing going on,” he told Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas.
