    And of course by contrast, you'd say the Michelle Obama is in touch with the average American mother?

    "Following law school, she was an associate at the Chicago office of the law firm Sidley Austin, where she first met her future husband. At the firm, she worked on marketing and intellectual property.[4] She continues to hold her law license, but as she no longer needs it for her work, it has been on a voluntary inactive status since 1993.[46]In 1991, she held public sector positions in the Chicago city government as an Assistant to the Mayor, and as Assistant Commissioner of Planning and Development. In 1993, she became Executive Director for the Chicago office of Public Allies, a non-profit organization encouraging young people to work on social issues in nonprofit groups and government agencies.[19] She worked there nearly four years and set fundraising records for the organization that still stood 12 years after she left.[17]
    In 1996, she served as the Associate Dean of Student Services at the University of Chicago, where she developed the University's Community Service Center.[47] In 2002, she began working for the University of Chicago Hospitals, first as executive director for community affairs and, beginning May 2005, as Vice President for Community and External Affairs.[48] She continued to hold the University of Chicago Hospitals position during the primary campaign, but cut back to part time in order to spend time with her daughters as well as work for her husband's election;[49] she subsequently took a leave of absence from her job.[50] According to the couple’s 2006 income tax return, her salary was $273,618 from the University of Chicago Hospitals, while her husband had a salary of $157,082 from the United States Senate. The Obamas' total income, however, was $991,296, which included $51,200 she earned as a member of the board of directors of TreeHouse Foods, and investments and royalties from his books.[51]
    She served as a salaried board member of TreeHouse Foods, Inc. (NYSE: THS),[52] a major Wal-Mart supplier with whom she cut ties immediately after her husband made comments critical of Wal-Mart at an AFL-CIO forum in Trenton, New Jersey, on May 14, 2007.[53] She serves on the board of directors of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs.[54]"

    I think that is a hard thing to accomplish their mac. I mean how can you say that anyone is in touch with the average american mother when one takes a look on these forums?

    That would be like me saying I'm in touch with the average american father. What is average in her standard? Is it the average conservative mother? The average liberal mother?

    The point is that this was a political statement that left out ALL politics when it was spoken.
    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).

    Who is an expert on this struggle and would that make them a better president if they were? Certainly there are far more desirable qualifications needed at the moment.

    Her husband wants to change this current economy into something much better, and so does she. He is an expert in turning companies around, he also did it for Massachusetts and that seems just the thing the US needs at the moment.

    Which makes Rosen's comment simply nothing more than an attempt to disparage the Romney's for political reasons.

    I'd love to hear what Rosen says about Romney in private


    probably something along the line of "breeder" and some of the other lines I used to hear from the radical lesbians towards women who bore lots of children

    Same as, for lack of a better term, what I would like to hear what you say about us liberals in private TurtleDude. (I used for lack of a better term because I don't want to hear what you say about us liberals in private lol.)

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

    Id like to know how many Nannys she had over the years raising her 5 boys....look no matter how you look at this, it boils down to common sense.
    Did Ann Romney ever have a Job...No!! she did not....She raised 5 boys like millions of other moms...and its alot easier to raise 5 kids when you have 100,000,000 than it is to raise 5 kids and HAVE to go to work everyday and come home and have to raise them and cook and clean and try to pay the bills and keep the ship afloat among ALL the other things mothers do..
    My wife had 5 kids to raise and she worked full time 6 days a week mostly in salons and eventually owned a few and ran the business'

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.
    Oh its More that Soros. Try Gates, Lady RothChild, Most of your Hollywood Elite all multi-millionaires,and let not forget good Ole Warren Buffet and Rockefeller.

    The difference is that the liberal rich people view their wealth as luck, as apposed to the right who view their riches as something they worked hard for and therefore earned. The right feel entitled to the money that they have.

    Me, I tend to falter to the side of humbleness as apposed to the side of greediness.
