Of course it was belittling stay at home moms. She thinks women who have "never had a job" (like Mrs. Romney, a stay at home mom and homemaker) can't know anything about economics. That's two insults in one. She thinks stay at home moms don't work and they're stupid about economic issues.
This is about the Presidency of the United States and the very important decisions which need to be made and you're looking for some meaningless connection?
She doesn't have a clue? You feel you'd overwhelm her with your cleverness in a one on one conversation? Where did she ever use her MS as an excuse for anything?Using her MS as an excuse doesn't cut it either. There are many who have MS and work.
And the point of her working is moot anyway. The point is, she just doesn't have a clue. So since she doesn't, how will she be able to connect with those who do?
And you relate to what? The average Democrat?Would you all rather have someone so rich they don't know what its like in every day life to most of us.....or those who know what it's like and can therefore relate??
I thought it valid view, myself.
Nota....yes, being a stay at home mom is tough. But, we do it (or did it). Why? Because we had to. Most of us are not like the Romneys. Which is why I don't want them anywhere near the white house. Sorry. Just my opinion.
[QUOTE=Grant;1060390636]Look to the left. See my lean?
Why do you feel the need to "connect" to the First Lady? Are you looking for a mother figure or something? No need to get snarky. No, I don't need a mother figure. I want the First Lady to know what it's like to be me. My itty bitty vote might not mean much, but it does to me. It will not go to the Romneys.
This is about the Presidency of the United States and the very important decisions which need to be made and you're looking for some meaningless connection? Yup.
She doesn't have a clue? You feel you'd overwhelm her with your cleverness in a one on one conversation? Where did she ever use her MS as an excuse for anything? I didn't say SHE was using it as an excuse. Some ARE using it, though.
And you relate to what? The average Democrat?

What is also stupid is that Mrs Romney is very smart and well educated and her husband was top of his class at Harvard's MBA program and a successful businessman.
My wife doesn't have a law degree, majored in nothing to do with law. However, she knows more about pre trial procedures, appellate arguments, burdens of proof, prima facie cases of employment discrimination and "voire dire" than 95% of the public merely by being around a trial attorney constantly for the last 20 years of her life. Rosen's a gaping 'tard to think that Mrs Romney has no clue about economics, businesses etc
Enola, every Presidential family is rich and unlike the average American.
