    She is a great mother, a brave woman who has done a lot of good work for charitable causes and who is a good wife. She has overcome great struggles in lfe wich is also very admirable.

    But
    , all these things do not make her an expert on the struggle that ordinary mothers face in this current economy.

    Well truthfully when did Rosen ever start Sporting credentials in human behaviour? Course she wouldn't want to have to explain away Hollywood Wives that decide to get divorced four and 5 times and have everybody else under the sun raise their kids either. While attending DNC dinners where the plates are like 5000k a pop or more.

    You da*n right Axelrod jump this run-a-way train. When he saw the wreck coming, he knew it wasn't gonna turn out the way they had hoped.

    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.

    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.
    I don't care why Rosen said what she did. She said it, and it's out there now for all time--her contempt for stay-at-home mothers. (Maybe she's alway felt a little guilty after going to the trouble to adopt, she herself didn't stay home with her twins? Who knows?)

    As for Ann Romney, maybe she never drove her sons to school or baseball practice or Scouts. My bet is that she did, but I don't know. Do you?

    Here's what I do know: Cancer is a tremendous equalizer, and Ann Romney has spent time with other cancer patients and facing what they do. Stereotyping her or anybody else based on wealth is just really...narrow. It says much more about how you regard other individuals that it does about her.

    The Romney's children appear to have turned out well. This doesn't have anything to do with money either.

In my experience, these women often volunteer for charitable work and with 16 grandkids, I'm sure she's not done taking care of family.
    Well, it is surely a lot of hard work to raise 5 children, but it is a little bit easier if you have hired help to do work that working class mothers cannot outsource to paid help. A working mother has to work 1 or 2 jobs, raise the children and also (usually almost by herself) run the household and do all the household chores.

    I am not sure she had paid help all the time but for parts of the childrens life/Ann Romney's run as a mother she has had paid help to do things that working mothers do not have access to.

    Won't dispute any of your post.


    But for all the screaming about the "rich" from the left, guess who is the biggest, richest, Libby financier - George "The Billionare" Soros. You don't hear any Libby complaining about how Soros got his money. I'll bet the French could explain how the Old Pirate got a few of his millions. But then the Libbys can't see past their hatred for Ms. Romney as a stay at home mom, to take a look at Soros.

    How many sources would you like me to show you indicating Rosen as a Democratic strategist before you give up the "faux news" tactic?
    you have to wonder why a foreign eurosocialist is so concerned over who is our president. I suspect other nations prefer someone who is going to help their countries, rather than ours.

    Hilary Rosen is a Democrat Pundit, and is a Democrat advisor. Dude, I can see why you'd want to distance your party from her, but at least tell the truth.

    I don't think a woman who got into two top universities merely because she is black and then got a top law job because she was black and then after screwing that up, got a huge salary merely because her husband was elected to the senate has much of a take on reality either.

    the fact is, once a person is in contention to be President, they and their spouse have pretty well escaped the gravitational pull of ordinary mundane life that most people experience
