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

    a stupid attack by this Democratic party strategist.... stupidity only eclipsed by those whom defend her or make similar arguments.

    listen Democrats, put down the idea that you know what is better for women than the individual women out there.. you do not.
    put down the idea that success is evil or somehow bad.. it's not.... it's good.


    y'all had it right during the last election when you argued that being elite was good .. and was a good trait for the President to have... do not change now and declare that being elite is now evil or bad.


    hopefully there are not too many liberals/democrats who believe women should get off their ass and get to work if they do not need or want to, hopefully there are plenty of liberals/ democrats who understand the importance of raising children and tending to the family...
    but after a cursory reading of this thread, i'm afraid my hopes are dashed.... too many people are still attacking this women for not working , but instead choosing to stay home and tend to her family.

    All this sounds like Obama and his attack dogs have a "war on women".

    Seems like President Obama is trying like hell to distance himself from this woman. Yet she'd visisted the WH 30 times? Seems a little cozy to me.

    I think the President, Axelrod and Messina, better pick up the pace it they think they can outrun this fiasco.

It is a questionable existance: it's wealthy laziness.

    ann romney's husband is a freakin millionaire. she doesn't need to work and can hardly be considered to be living freely on the hard work of others. what would you expect her to do? get a job at walmart? I can see it now, "here's my paycheck honey...now we have 200 million and 175 dollars. I just want to do my part"

    My wife has a degree in accounting, and by these standards has "never worked a day in her life". I have been fortunate (and worked hard enough) that she has been able to be a stay at home mom. once the kids are gone we plan on living off my military retirement. will she then be guilty of living off the hard work of others?

    That's right, now I remember, you like to bet with folks on line. Is that it? One bet to many?

    I see this as a crazy statement. If one needs work to have an identity, they are a pretty weak person, IMO. To me, a purpose of having a job is paying the bills, not much else. A means to an end.

    I can't imagine not *wanting* to work.
    I can imagine not wanting to have a job. There are so many other things one could spend there lives doing, rather than toiling away. What I don't understand is people that are so into 'work', that they never retire, or retire and fade away to nothing and die because they then feel life has no purpose. That is insanity to me.

    I am baffled by anyone that believes that anyone capable of having a job should have one, for no other reason than they can.

    And for once I agree 100% with you. Glad to see you finally get one right.

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

    While I'm seeing folks saying things to the effect that this is just terrible for Obama... I'm gonna say that the lady who said this looks bad and the more the Romney campaign tries to make an issue of it the more they look trying to gain ground on their woman gap and it smells of really bad desperation.

    one massive non-issue that will be forgotten in a couple days.

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

    personally, I think that anyone who is stupid enough to claim that a stay at home mom has never worked a day in her life is so colossal an idiot that anything they say should be ignored. I know my wife has worked her ass off every single day of her stay at home life.

    My boyfriend's aunt is the wife of a former marine and current military contractor. He spends 6-8 months a year overseas on assignment. She doesn't work. So what does she do with her time? She maintains the house, she works out, she goes shopping. But you know what else she does? She heads the local chapter for a group that focuses on transitioning returning soliders into the private sector and on aiding the families of soldiers who are currently deployed. She spends probably 40-50 hours a week organizing events and fundraisers, helping with administrative tasks, meeting with those who are being helped by the program, etc.

    And when she isn't working with the volunteer group she's here in Texas spending time with her grand children and grown daughter. And I really appreciate that, being somebody who personally never got much time with her grandparents.

    And you know....who cares if she didn't volunteer. She and her husband are perfectly okay with their arrangement, and they're the only people that really matter. They aren't using entitlement programs or sapping off the system to survive, so I say let 'em do what they want to do.
    A lot of women are not going to relate to Ann Romney which is going to be The Problem, as opposed to pondering if it's a personal or character problem of Ann's for not having actually worked.

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

    Someone said that Ann Romney was demonized. I disagree. She was just exposed as a woman who really doesn't get what most women experience on a daily basis.

    Yes, being a stay at home parent is work but she never had to juggle raising her children, hold down a job, and have the worries that a working parent goes through 24/7.

    I think most reasonable people knew what Hilary Rosen was talking about.
