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

    Personally, I think this is a bad choice of words. She should have said, "Ann Romney has never held down a job a single day in her life." Then us on the left at least could have retreated to our dictionaries:

    Work:
    Activity involving mental or physical effort done in order to achieve a purpose or result.
    Job:
    A paid position of regular employment.

    I don't see where the point of all of this is really. If someone says something and then realizes that they are wrong. Why should they be blamed for being corrected? That is, of course, if her addendum and apologies were sincere. (Only saying this for those who will bring up Limbaugh.)

    EDIT:

    Synonyms for Work:
    job - labor - business - labour - occupation - employment
    (Might paint a different picture I suppose)
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    The other one that gets me about the Democrats is......

    Maria Cardona, a specialist in Hispanic outreach at the Dewey Square Group......snip~

    What I want to know is is a Specialist in Hispanic Outreach, and why Democrats waste money on this type of Crap.

    I'm starting to believe this "call out Ann Romney" was directly from the DNC play book. They need the female vote and thought this would bring over some of the "independent women's" vote. But seems it backfired on them big time.

    I think it was a secret plot by the Trilateral Commission ... and it's working peeeeeerfectly. Mwahahaha.
    "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."

    All sides spend money on stuff like this--image-consultants and spin-doctors. This isn't a Dem thing; it's a modern-politician thing.

    Yes.....Obama hires Rosen to work as an Advisor to the DNC Chair. Schultz wouldnt get vocal so Rosen stepped out. Why didn't Wassermann Schultz prevent her advisor from going public?

    I do not agree that it was pointless or an attack. But you are right, Fox is not really honest in it's attacks on Obama.

    The reason why I say that it was not really pointless or an attack is this:

    Romney has said that his wife if the one who informs him that women really care about economic issues. But he did not say how she knows. If he had said that his wife has talked to numerous women who have told her so it would make his statement understandable because how would Ann Romney know the daily struggles of regular women? She is not someone who personally knows the struggles of women who have to balance 2 or 3 jobs with raising and caring for her kids. She never has to worry where she will get the money from for feeding her kids. Who is going to pick them up from school when she has to work overtime, etc. etc. etc. etc. I am sure that Ann Romney never had to worry about her kids scholastic future as regular women do have to worry where they are going to get the money from to send their kids to college etc.

    Personal experiences about economic hardships and the daily issues that a mother has these days Ann Romney does not have. And that is what I think Hiary Rosen actually said. She questioned what makes Ann Romney Mitt's expert on women's economic worries as she never had any of these worries herself.

    What you have is Mitt Romney running around the country saying, "Well, you know, my wife tells me that what women really care about are economic issues. And when I listen to my wife, that's what I'm hearing."

    Guess what? His wife has actually never worked a day in her life. She's never really dealt with the kinds of economic issues that a majority of the women in this country are facing in terms of how do we feed our kids, how do we send them to school, and how do we -- why we worry about their future.
    The problem is that Foxnews only focussed on the first part of her statement and not why this lady (who is not a democratic pundit) said what she did.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    I agree with you in part. I don't think Hilary Rosen was necessarily "going rogue"; I think she just went too far. Luminaries such as Axelrod Tweeting instantly to distance themselves says it all.

    I guessing the DNC didn't think this Rosen thing could turn like it did and bite them in the butt. But good on them, now we know how they feel about stay and home moms . . . not much.
