Tweet of the day: Kerry comes prepared

(CNN) - When Sen. John Kerry showed up to help President Barack Obama prepare for Tuesday's presidential debates, one can safely assume he didn't bring any "binders full of women."

Obama tapped the senator from Massachusetts to play the role of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney in their mock debate sessions. He also "spun" for the candidate in the debate spin room on Tuesday.

At the debate, the former Massachusetts governor set the internet afire with his comment that to find women qualified to work in hia administration, he requested - and received - "binders full of women."

Wednesday afternoon, Kerry posted this tweet:

    Dear "Fact" – Please change your name as you are anything but a "Fact." Seriously with the Muslim brotherhood still? You really need to get some FACTS and then try your post again :)

    Oh, please. You give the Muslim Bros far too much credit, and give American men and women far too little if you think they'd be allowed to waltz in and persecute American women.

    Worse is his comment that women were allowed to leave early so they could go home and cook. Also there were no qualifed women so they turned to women groups to look for women with some other experiences.

    It really is curious that Romney doesn't really make it clear that the comment shows that he is out of touch. I guess that comes with not having any daughters and being in a business where being aggressive is a necessity.

    I understand even the "binder" comment was really not completely true. Romney was questioned by two women's advocacy groups regarding his dismal record of hiring women. They provided the "binders" to prove to Romney that qualified women were in fact available. He can't even fake his belief in women's rights and not tell an additional lie.

    Too late. The campaign has shifted away from mincing words to the failed policies of a angry President. Women are not as stupid as Democrats think they are.
