    It's called the press corps.

    Right. A DNC operative is more likely.

    The average American doesn't worry about their stylist and dress designer not seeing eye-to-eye. Or do the architect and landscaper get along?

    I've spent time with people worth $100 million +. They don't know how to drive a car or even where to find meat in their neighborhood supermarket. That's not saying their 'bad' people. If they came from nothing, the have some respect for the working class. But some wives forget where they came from and act like they were born in the Country Club (that their husband pays for).

    Romney brought his wife in to the conversation, claiming she can relate with the struggles of the average American. BS.

    The comment in context is not unfair. Maybe her tone was a little off, but the notion is fair. The super-wealthy wives live in a different world that working class mothers.

    Hmmm?

    Let's figure out what that means.... She... works... for... CNN. Period.




    Since you have all the info, you tell us what she did there on each visit.

    Who was paying her salary on her most recent visit???

    She works for CNN.

    Period.

    Stop clinging to the Fox News lie.

    It's getting embarrassing. I'm embarrassed for you.


    I'm sure your embarrassed, but it would have to be because you can't argue your point.

    CNN listed her as a DNC stratagist and analylist. If you don't like their description of Ms. Rosen, then it is now your personal problem. I'm just reporting - you decide.

    More like the Libby/Demo attacks on Ms. Palin in 2008.

    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.
    most of us went thru similar situations, but most of us worked thru it, aren't bitter about it, or jealous of those who started out better or had it easier.

    What spin? Oh . . . . . Fox got it wrong, right?

    My favorite is when adults turn into 13 year old girls and say, "You're just jealous."

    some do, but not all.....one that I know, worth well over $50 million, worries that his kids will be warped by too much too easy, so they don't get it easy, they have to work. If you saw them, you would never suspect they are wealthy. Another one put his boys into the family business, they work for their paycheck even if they did get a job based on being family.
    The rich know that their wealth can dissipate to nothing over a few generations if they don't train their kids to take care of that wealth.
    My wife and I are the first in our family tree to have a lot more money than we need, and we told the kids, and will tell our grandkids, to take advantage of a college education at our expense, that it is the only sure bet they have for a better future, as the money might not be there when we die. After the education, the rest is up to them.
    That is how MOST people become wealthy.
    Certainly being jealous of them won't help....
    The wealthy who think they did it all on their own, though, and then hoard their wealth, try to avoid paying taxes, whine about their already low tax rates, etc., there is something wrong with them...but I suspect they are just a vocal few who misrepresent the wealthy.

    when living in Idaho, I was told I was lucky....I had a new car (4 yr. old dodge dart), almost new truck (5 years old D250), farily new house (paid $38K for it in 1977 with $30K financed), and a good job (at the Idaho Nuclear Engineering Lab).

    I told him he could be just as lucky if he wanted to join the navy, obligate for 8 years, go to Nuke School, serve on ships for several years, get out of the Navy, get a job at the INEL, and ride a bus for 2 hours a day to get to and from the job.

    He wasn't interested in giving up part of his life to the military, or ride the bus so much.

    I guess he wanted his "luck" gift wrapped and delivered to his doorstep...

    Why no...I think reasoned, intelligent people can relate to others through their own understanding of the human condition. Thanks SO much for pointing out how STUPID Rosens comments were.
