Ann isn't really under attack, nor was the comment that offensive. Hannity needs to calm the **** down. There actually more deplorable things to say about Ann Romney than, "she hasn't worked a day in her life."
Listen, I make far less money than Governor Romney, and after my wife retired from the military, we decided that she should stay at home to raise our kids while I worked. It's tough, despite me making a decent living, first in the military as well, then as a civilian. I'll tell you this though, she get's up when I do, and is working well after I get home. People get paid to do the things she does, but she does it "for free."
I don't think either are, I don't care how they advocate for their husbands. I also thought it was terribly wrong to attack Sarah Palin's family, regardless of the fact they were on the campaign trail with her. Families should be out of bounds. They are not running for the office. President Obama said so in 2008 and reiterated it yesterday, "leave wives out of it".
Am I in the minority for thinking Chelsea Clinton is at least somewhat attractive?
- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
