    This was a colosally stupid thing to say.

    Axelrod and Messina are running for the hills. The ridiculous "War on Women" meme has been completely shattered in the last 48 hours.

    What does she do - if anything - with all these years she's had? Where does he fall in his beliefs? If we bring the President's career choices and his wife's career choices into question (yes - I was here last election: I remmeber all of that quite clearly and it wasn't all a negative issue) then why can't we question this and what it reflects on them as people of this country.

    I have a serious problem with a grown capable woman who does not find employment - ever. My husband's mother is one and she's lowly in my view: living freely and welloff on the hard work of others and has done nothing to earn anything for herself. It is a questionable existance: it's wealthy laziness.
    Dang Aunt Spiker. What's wrong with being a housewife if you so desire, and you can afford it? My Mom was a housewife for all the years of her 54-year marriage to my Dad, except for a brief time period when Daddy was 55 and got laid off his job, then she went and got a job to help get them through until Daddy could find gainful employment again.

    Imo, there is absolutely nothing wrong with being a housewife, if that's where your priorities lie.

    You got that right. This is a Axelrod and Messina "cover the President's butt" scramble. One little big mouthed Demo/Libby just shot the admin in the foot.

    Actually, a far more accurate point than the one you weretrying to make.

    The families I am thinking of have businesses, and often the wife will work there. In one case, the wife is the majority owner of the business and works full time at it.
    And most of them did not start out wealthy....can't speak for all of them.
    We had a "house keeper" for awhile, and we're lower-middle class grunts right now! We paid my boyfriend's sister $20 a week to come clean the kitchen, living room, and bathroom at our old apartment.

    He's not keen on the idea, but the procedure is a lot less invasive and a lot less expensive for him than it would be for me. Also, it's harder for a woman to get "spayed" than it is for a man to get "neutered". Most doctors won't touch a woman's baby-makin' system until well into her late 30s, early 40s.

    MS itself is a nightmare, whether you are raising kids or not. I used to play benefits to raise money for MS, and was a chili cookoff judge. Yes, I was certified to be a chili cookoff judge too. I donated a lot of time to this cause.

    Here's the deal. People need to lay off both Obama's wife and Romney's wife, and deal with the issues at hand. I know that this is difficult because both Romney and Obama have injected their wives into their campaigns, and some will say that makes them legitimate targets. But neither wife is a candidate for President of the United States either. That is where all the ****ing dishonesty comes in, and make no mistake about it - Talking heads for both sides are doing this crap. If the American people want to fall for this game, then they have no right at all to complain that their government is not working for them. After all, it was THEY who decided to go after family instead of giving a damn about the issues at hand.

    Just my 2 cents on the matter.

    How so? We are discussing a topic here. You are attacking the right for discriminating against hispanics. That is relevant how?
