Obama’s Binder Full of Muslims
In their second debate, Mitt Romney tried to appeal to women by saying he actively sought them out. Though Barack Obama is criticizing him for saying that, Obama has his own binder.
Here is a snippet from the Chicago Tribune: (3/29/09)
In a bid to get more Muslim Americans working in the Obama administration, a book with resumes of 45 of the nation’s most qualified — Ivy League grads, Fortune 500 executives and public servants, all carefully vetted — has been submitted to the White House.
The effort, driven by community leaders and others, including Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), was bumped up two weeks ahead of schedule because White House officials heard about the venture, said J. Saleh Williams, program coordinator for the Congressional Muslim Staffers Association who sifted through more than 300 names.
