    So she shouldnt be allowed to have an opinion now? It's crazy how quickly this woman's rights are diminishing.

    Re: Ann Romney Never Worked a Day In Her Life.

    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.

    The underlying point that isn't being mentioned is that Hilary Rosen clearly believes that one's circumstances can and do invalidate an individual's point of view. In essence, Ms. Rosen has said that women that stay at home should not be listened to and should not have a voice...i.e. "stay in the kitchen, bare-foot and pregnant." This is further supported by her response to Mrs. Romney's tweet, where she said; "I am raising children too. But u do know that most young american women have to earn a living AND raise their kids don't u?"
    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.”

    She's perfectly entitled to have an opinion, and it's no one's business. But if she puts herself out in front of the public -- campaigning for her husband -- and gives her opinion, then it is fair for others to question her credibility.
    "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."

    I'll bring Obama into this, but not in the way you think

    Hmmm. Kinda makes her look really really douchee now.

    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.

    Ok. So you then will not have a problem anytime anyone else, who makes a public statement, gets their personal life delved into and smeared when its completely unrelated?

    Well, maybe they have something there, but on the other hand, if the KKK said something really racist and bad about Obama, could Democrats then say that a Republican operative made that claim?

    Yahoo! How is it that you are the only one that saw this point. I thought the same thing, but wanted to see how others viewed the news story. Thanks.

    Please point out where he said she shouldn't have an opinion.

    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.

    I think you have AdamT tied in enough knots, don't you? Anymore and it will be days before he gets untangled.
