    There's a difference between a rich guy who has devoted his career to helping the less fortunate, and a rich guy who spent his career as a corporate raider and who espouses huge tax cuts for himself and his rich friends.

    In any case, John Kerry didn't grow up rich. His dad wasn't the head of a car company and a former governor. Kerry just married a rich lady.

    "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 just can't connect to her - women like her (like my mother in law - and my grandmother in law) I wouldn't choose her path (their path) in life: I would have felt like I failed as an individual if I spent my entire life caring for my kids and grandkids and became nothing more than my husband's sidekick and trophy wife. Honestly - until I started college I did feel like that about myself and it damn near drove me to suicide. So maybe I'm putting myself in her shoes and imagining myself wanting to claw my eyes out as I only became tethered to his hip my whole life - a mere dependent child that never grows up - and dies forever reliant on someone else's welfare to carry me through . . . not a feel-good thing to me at all.
    So you are basically projecting. Not a good way to make a reasonable analysis.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Oh, I see... you two are changing the subject and trying to derail the thread. As if hypocrisy = staying on topic. No, it doesn't.

    This thread is about Ann Romney never working a day in her life and advising her husband about concerns of the average working family.

    If you don't mind, I'll stay on topic.

    If you want to start a thread about a Dem wife, feel free.

    I believe being condescending and arrogant is usuall considered insulating.

    Rosen is a troll using a stereotypical character assassination remark and Ann Romney was the guppy that took the bait. Here is more on this Rosen from her wiki page.

    To be fair, do we know if she even raised the kids by herself w/o nannies or has she ever cleaned one of her homes?

    We don't, but you've posted several posts in this thread which accuse of her having done any number of things we have no direct proof for. I find it ironic that you even made this post.

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

    I think religion plays a huge role in her decision to not work. Every Mormon mother I have known is a sahm. The Mormon religion teaches that the role of mother is sacred and are encouraged to stay home if possible. Here is an excerpt from the LDS Proclamation on the Family:

    The family is ordained of God. Marriage between man and woman is essential to His eternal plan. Children are entitled to birth within the bonds of matrimony, and to be reared by a father and a mother who honor marital vows with complete fidelity. Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities. By divine design, fathers are to preside over their families in love and righteousness and are responsible to provide the necessities of life and protection for their families. Mothers are primarily responsible for the nurture of their children. In these sacred responsibilities, fathers and mothers are obligated to help one another as equal partners. Disability, death, or other circumstances may necessitate individual adaptation.
