    No, that does not follow from my statement. If Ann talked about the plight of working mothers -- as I said -- it would be fair game to point out that she has never worked and so has no personal experience with what it's like to be a working mother. It would not be appropriate to launch a broadside against her on matters unrelated to her statements.

    Is this really so confusing to you?
    "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 will agree with that, but you don't see a difference between questioning her credibility, and saying she "shouldn't have an opinion?" and telling her to "Go to hell", as one person said? Debate can only work if there is a fair amount of respect on both sides, afterall.

    I agree with the statement, we shouldn't criticize another woman's choices. But keep in mind, Mitt brought her into the conversation multiple times when he said that he turns to his wife Ann for advice on economics and what the average family voter is concerned about. She has no clue what weighs heavy on the "average" working mom or regular American family.

    She is the 1%. They worry about contractors getting their new house finished in time. (the one with the car elevator in the garage) Caterers putting on a great party for them. They don't worry about losing their job and not being able to pay the bills. She could feed a country with one check and not change her life whatsoever.

    Mitt brought her into the conversation.

    See...it isnt hypocritical of we only concern ourselves with wealthy REPUBLICANS. Oh...wait...

    Yes...they should bang that drum loudly. I'm SURE attacking all stay at home moms and claiming they 'never work a day in their life" will play well this election cycle. And anyone that actually BELIEVES and is STUPID enough to claim a stay at home mom never 'works'...yeah...boy...bang that drum LOUDLY. ****ing morons...

    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.

    This is interesting! I can see the left doesn't abide by the "good for the goose, good for the gander" rule.

    So this Demo spokesperson Rosen said "Rosen derided Republican attacks against Michelle Obama as an example as "stupid strategy." and "You know essentially, you've taken on sort of the most sympathetic person in the candidate's realm, the wife, who is taking care of the children, supporting the husband, doing everything she can because she loves him,"

    But now she has changed her tune about "taking care of the children, supporting the husband."

    Could it be that Rosen is NOT the face of the Obama campaign and is simply a dumbass on her own?

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

    There is plenty to be angry at romney about, both he and his wife are recorded as being "asshole, corrupt, flip-floppers" throughout their lives. Calling her out for being a "stay at home mom", and saying she has never a worked a day in her life...as if taking care of kids isn't working....is NOT one of those circumstances. I'm really considering voting for Obama, and at least he's doing the right thing by distancing himself. The left however, seems intent on trying to defend blatant disrespect.

    John Kerry was out of touch and I'm pretty sure that was one of the main criticisms of him that came from the left in 2004.

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

    As the potential First Lady of the United States, Mrs. Romney would have a considerable voice on issues. I don't see any problem with bringing her into the conversation, but it would have to be based on something she said/did. For example, if she came out in support of PETA and yet wore fur her entire life, it is only fair for Americans to see/know her hypocrisy. But to throw out a blanket statement that disparages what/who she is, is just ridiculous and will do nothing but make you look bad. Families should be off limits during the campaign, but not the potential First Lady.
    Hail to the King baby!

    How many of the pigs in Washington have ever done a days work? Were the Kennedys a coal mining family?
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.
