    You mean like the endless attacks on Michelle in the '08 campaign? Wingnuts calling her a racist? Attacking her over her college papers? Making crude remarks about her appearance? As usual, there is no bottom to the right wing hypocrisy pit.
    "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."

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

    How many personal assistants does the average stay-at-home mom have?

    Why aren't people pointing out how people worth $250 Million don't worry about:

    paying bills
    time management
    cleaning the house.
    making dinner
    doing the laundry
    picking up the kids


    They don't answer their own phone. They have an assistant do that for them.

    Wow, way to spin that story.

    Obama did exactly what he should have done, which is immediately indicate his disagreement with the comments. I wish all politicians would do this. Unfortunately, many politicians like to ambiguously play both sides, Republicans just as much as Democrats.

    That's what makes mothering and being a stay at home mom so stressful - if you have all that covered: what's to fuss over?

    A lot of my time was spent clipping coupons and planning meals to figure out how to make 7 meals happen when only spending money on the ingredient for 5. . . time and money management just doesn't become a factor in your life if you don't have a reason to manage it.

    I experienced a lot of guilt - money was very tight but we made it work and usually at the sacrifice of something the kids needed or wanted or I needed or wanted. Things would have been completely different if money just grew on trees - instead, I felt horrible for my husband who was the only one supporting all of us: it was exhausting to him and that strained our marriage for a while.

    Unfortunately, they will never report Obama's comments on Fox News, just the 30 times Rosen went to the WH.

    You forget that managing 4 maids is a FULL TIME job.

    I read that in several places - but did she have maids and butlers and all that?

    Why do you, and everyone else on the left, assume she did none of those things herself?

    1. Aunt Spiker had a great answer to this question.
    2. That's the entire point of the original comment - that Anne Romney hasn't had experience in things that 1) Most/many women have. 2) Would give her relevant knowledge of economic issues most Americans have to deal with.
