    Yep, and I apologized for that. OTOH, I can't imagine how someone could copy and paste a paragraph from a right wing blog and mistakenly think that he's copied it from the Los Angeles Times website -- while conspicuously failing to provide a link. He did provide a link to his previous reference (American Thinker! ). And of course this is the young man who runs around claiming that I'M dishonest in every other post, so ... live by the sword, die by the sword.
    "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 think it actually brings up some significant questions - our government is suppose to foster equality and freedom and further the belief that women have a right to work and should find employment as it suits their needs in their life. Does Romney believe that women have a right to work or are we going to see hints of male-favoritism as we did during the Great Depression if the government tries to step in to help with employment issues and exludes [sic] women in the process if he's in office?

    I don't think it's wrong to be a stay at home mom: I am one.

    But at some point you stop being a stay at home mom - their youngets child was born in 1981, making him one year younger than me. . . she is no longer a stay at home mom for her children - that is no longer her description in life and does not account for their actual beliefs at present.

    What does she do - if anything - with all these years she's had? Where does he fall in his beliefs? If we bring the President's career choices and his wife's career choices into question (yes - I was here last election: I remmeber [sic] all of that quite clearly and it wasn't all a negative issue) then why can't we question this and what it reflects on them as people of this country.

    I have a serious problem with a grown capable woman who does not find employment - ever. My husband's mother is one and she's lowly in my view: living freely and welloff on the hard work of others and has done nothing to earn anything for herself. It is a questionable existance [sic]: it's wealthy laziness.
    My wife currently has a part time job outside the home, but for a very large part of our marriage, she has not had any outside job.

    I have a job that is very demanding on me, and leaves me with little time or energy to manage the rest of my life. Without all the work that my wife does to manage our household, I just wouldn't be able to do it.

    Your attitude is insulting and offensive to women such as my wife, who do a great deal of work, to help run a household, and to provide the support that their husbands need in order to meet their obligations. Just because she may not be working outside the home, in a job that pays an income, certainly does not mean that a woman is lazy, that she does no work, or that her efforts are not very valuable to her family.

    Ann Romney gave a gracious rebuttal, and Hillary Rosen apologized for her remarks. Is that enough, or will this little incident metastasize & eventually help kill someone's campaign?

    Obviously some people don't have issues being reliant on others for everything - and I have serious issues with that.
    It sounds like you have some serious personal issues, which you are projecting on to women in general. Or perhaps you just don't get the point of marriage.

    I am the one in my marriage who brings in the vast majority of financial income. My wife brings in a small amount, from a part-time job, but it is my income that makes it possible to keep a roof over our head and food in our stomachs. My wife's job allows us to enjoy a few little extra luxuries that we otherwise might not, and keeps her from being cooped up at home all the time.

    So yes, my wife is dependent on me. But it doesn't just go in one direction.

    My job, as I said, is very demanding. It simply would not be within my ability to hold down this job, and also to manage all the various other aspects of our lives, making sure that the bills get paid on time, the shopping gets done, laundry, household cleaning and maintenance, and so on. As dependent as my wife is on me to bring in the income that makes everything possible, I am no less dependent on her to manage all these other details that make everything possible.

    It's not two separate individuals, each trapped in some dependency on the other—it's a team of two people, jointly managing our lives in a way that works much better than either of us would be able to manage separately.

    Right...because so many women 'relate' to Mobama...or for that matter Laura Bush. Or Hillary.

    What is it with this sudden message about 'relating'? How many people can 'relate to an elitist that never had to 'work' to find a job...who's wife was gifted a job at a hospital where she didnt have to do ****...a job that didnt exist prior to her being given the job and hasnt been filled since? How many people can 'relate' to the rich democrats in congress or their wives? Its a line people are being fed and they are swallowing it. You think people can 'relate to multiple vacations a year, to sending your 12 year old to a foreign country for 'spring break' for Gods sake?
