    Well, she's an advisor to the DNC, so not irrelvant, and I've not seen any outrage from the Romeny's...faux or otherwise.

    A royal "stepping on your crank moment" for the Obama folks?
    NO, this would be a better example of your metaphor: "I wanted to increase the work requirement," said Romney. "I said, for instance, that even if you have a child 2 years of age, you need to go to work. And people said, 'Well that's heartless.' And I said, 'No, no, I'm willing to spend more giving day care to allow those parents to go back to work. It'll cost the state more providing that daycare, but I want the individuals to have the dignity of work.'"

    Romney forces me to infer that stay at home parenting lacks dignity and is not work. That is a great example of tripping on one's crank. Way to appeal to your base, Mitt.

    Can I have the link to your Mitt Romney quotes? Thanks.

    I can see you won't be voting for Romney, but that aside, what are your thoughts/comments on the DNC strategist Ms. Rosen's calling out Ms. Romeny? If you read the web link you'd have the idea as to what the thread is about, yes? Thanks.

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

    "I apologize to Ann Romney and anyone else who was offended," Rosen said in statement.

    Rosen's comments drew condemnation from all corners, including from President Obama, who called the remarks "ill-advised."

    So this issue is basically laid to rest.

    Perhaps the other "strategists" will learn from this.

    He was referring to single parents. Not stay home moms.

    Are you comparing stay at home moms to welfare queens?

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.
    Again, her son has said there were no nannies.

    No comparison. They both stay at home, don't work, and take care of their children....
    "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

    If you're taking money from taxpayers via welfare, I agree with Romney. Get up at "O'dark'30" like every other taxpayer; get your child(ren) to daycare and your arse on the job.

    What makes a person on welfare different than John Q. Taxpayer who has to get up get their kids to the daycare/babysitter/school and go to work?
