    Gimme a break Ann. You don't have a clue about hard work...
    No offense, but how do you know what involvement she had? Are you making assumptions and passing judgment against her without legitimate knowledge of the facts? Why? What do you solve or accomplish by doing this?

    Still deflecting to the right eh?

    I don't think I mentioned an insult, but I'll take a look at the orginal post, just for you.


    Again, did you have that same "multi-millionaire's wife thinks she can relate with the rest of us" thought when John Kerry was running?

    You know what? Screw that nonsense. The feminist movement should be about ensuring the woman has the choice to live her life as she sees fit. And that includes the choice to "conform to historic gender roles" if that's what she wants. We don't need to challenge every woman who doesn't burn her bra and demand more pay and insist upon being the bread winner in some march for "equality" against men. And we don't need to accuse every man of mysogyny if his wife isn't a bra-burning feminazi, either.
    I would love to help you destroy the historic gender roles. If my wife was making enough money to support our household and she asked me to stay home with the kids, I would be all for it. If I can provide for my family and she can stay home with our children, then it is up to her if that is what she wants. Good for Mitt that he was able to provide his family with options.

    No, no women say that about raising your children right. You probably mistaken movies for real life sometimes. It's understandable. Women do it all the time.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Yeah - it does bother me that we're trying ot move forward in regard to women in the workplace and society in general but every republican woman possibly to be first-lady in the last years is the exact opposite of that.

    The first lady doesn't just look pretty - she's quite busy, involved with many things - and she and the few women in the higher end of politics are all we have as a hedge into the rest of the world. So yeah: that bothers me a lot - I'm abit afraid we'll reverse our progress if she starts representing us in the world.
    So all women should do what you want them to do rather than be free to make their own choices.....interesting. Or am I misunderstanding you? It sounds to me like you think all women should get a job whether they want to or not. So much for choice.

    Good on ya. Totally agree. I can't imagine what it would be like trying to raise 6 boys. I do know it wouldn't be a walk in the park.

    The woman's equality movement was a movement to give them no choices? Also, who votes on the first lady?

    Obama never held a private sector job, yet you find him perfectly well equipped to micromanage the entire US economy. Obama was never a doctor yet somehow he is qualified to reconfigure the entire health system. So Ann Romney never held a job. It might be time to drop the gender identity pretense. If she were CEO of a major corporation, she would be being demonized for her wealth and power and bitchiness and how she doesnt represent the typical American woman nor understand her struggles--just like her husband is being portrayed..
