What I find a bit desperate about the Right's 'outrage' over this is someone so far away from the Center of Democratic Power, is being held as THE voice of the Democrats to counter mis-speaks coming from Willard's mouth directly.
Like most republican budgets, it just doesn't balance.
While the deflection from the statement Willard made is working fairly well, no doubt a campaign strategy to quickly attack any hint of Richie Rich labeling, the fact is a multi-millionaire wife hasn't much insight into what the average middle class working mom faces financially. I don't see her advice to Willard as very helpful in him understanding the Middle class.
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
"The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."
-- Adam Smith
I'll bring Obama into this, but not in the way you think

Hmmm. Kinda makes her look really really douchee now.Originally Posted by Michelle Rosen
Combine that with her visiting the White House 4 times as often as General Petraeus, 3 times as much as Leon Panetta, and more than twice that of Steven Chu, now you have an even bigger moment of dumb-ass-ery.

The simple fact is, yes, she can have an opinion. However, she isn't free from criticism after voicing that opinion.
Free speech works both ways.
Honestly, I don't see why people of both sides attack the family members. The family members aren't running for president, so they shouldn't matter.
