    We are becoming a fragmented society, and we have forgotten that "we the people" means all of us, not just those we might agree with, or identify with.
    Lesser issues should go on the back burner until we get the economy healthy again. Personally, I don't care about the so-called morality issues, those are even more back burner than the rest. If God wants to send us to hell for those things, so be it. That is HIS jurisdiction, and government should stay out of it.
    I agree problems need to be prioritized and the one issue at the very top above all others right now is the economy.

    The other issues are becoming distractions like a squirrel is to a dog--it takes all focus off the higher priority stuff, at least temporarily. Although I am sure that is by to design sometimes.

    I also don't know how commenting on someone's economic status and "job" would even fit into the "war on women" arguments.
    Just like everyone else, moderates tend to lean in one direction or the other and they are swayed to vote one way or the other by current events, among other things. Those that tend to lean towards the conservative side will likely see this "attack" as distastfull, pushing them away from the left.

    Personally, I think the President handled it well. So well, in fact, that it smells like a set up as Billy indicated. I have a hard time beleiveing that someone with as much media expierience as Rosen would make a "mistake" like this publicly.

    How is this emotion? IMO, it more like jealousy and envy. Kinda sticks out like a sore thumb. You just don't look good when your a light shade of green.


    The ladies in my family were royally ticked off. Some work in the home, some outside the home. But they were all angry and insulted.

    I think Rosen's mistake wasn't saying that Anne Romney never worked a day in her life, I bet she hasn't. What she should have added was that while most stay-at-home mums might never have done a day's paid work in their lives, they most certainly have worked, and hard! I suspect Anne Romney doesn't fall into that category. I'd be surprised if she had had fewer than a couple of full-time nannies plus a whole household of domestic help. She's no ordinary struggling stay-at-home mum.

    Your point on the nanny thing, I've seen that posted before. Do you know that she had a nanny? I've been on the web looking up Ann Romney and haven't seen anything about a nanny. Just asking.


    I really don't care if they had 20 nannies, the one thing I do know about Mitt Romney is he knows how to make money.

    And the one thing I know about our current adminstration is - they sure know how to print and spend money, we don't have.

    Of course I don't know. That's why I said:

    English is such a great language if you know how to use it.

    Thanks. Just asking.

    I've found several blog stating yes she did: a lady called “Juanita” called into Al Gore's Current TV saying she worked for the Romney's as a cook and babysitter.

    And a facebook from her son youngest boy Ben, 31, who said: “Growing up, we never had a nanny or a ‘mommy’s helper.’ Never went to daycare."

    I care. When you tell a lie long enough some folks start to beleive it's the truth mainly because the say "who cares".

    It's better to have all the facts, don't you think? Well it is in my world.

    Maybe because she is not a dancer...
