    Hey I didn't write the story but she was described as a "DNC strategist and CNN analyst". Sounds like she's on the team to me.

    As to the "dumbass on her own" that's for you to decide, yes? But that could be how the Oval Office is describing her today.

    What I find funny about it on the face of it is that it seems to smack in contradiction toward a great deal of early feminist literature, in which the women of the 19th and 20th centuries had to keep reminding the men and other esteemed profesisonals that their presence in the home was a lengthy and arduous job.

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

    it sounds kinda crazy, like saying Pat Buchanan a RNC strategist and multi- media analyst speaks for Willard. Or perhaps Anne Coulture...

    But not a job that gives insight into what working class women face financially if the stay at home mother is a multi-millionaire's wife. That is like saying Thurston Howe the third's wife is the typical castaway...

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

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

    So to use your analogy -"This thread is about Ann Romney never working a day in her life and advising her husband about concerns of the average working family", then everyone can dismiss your point of view on the rich, yes?

    So do you agree with this in today's world or is this an outdated square thing to do.

    I'm not sure I understand the question.

    Do you think stay at home moms is a thing of the past and that has no place in today's world. Hell if I could have been home even more to unravel knots out of fishing lines I surly would have, even in today's world.

    I think it is becoming more and more unlikely, something of a luxury at best. In the past, it was luxury for the middle class white woman and lower-middle class black women to be active in the community and political activism outside the home. On the other hand we also have a new ethos which stresses professionalism for both sexes, of which I am personally inclined.

    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.
    And that's fine..there's nothing wrong with someone staying home to take care of the kids. I'm sure if more families could afford they would choose that route.....

    But Rosen is right...if your indicator on what policies are important to women is based on things your wife said...she represents a very very very small sliver of what most women deal with. It's a fact. Just like Mitt Romney almost has no inkling of what most Americans go through daily or in life.

    I always admired the single income family that landed in the middle, it is a good place to be and raise a family. It is sad that I do have to agree with you on that it has become a "luxury" slipping away from more and more folk that would actually love to do this for themselves but most have to rely on double incomes.
