    As far as I can tell, Rosen doesn't work for Obama. I think what you meant to say was, "good for Obama for stating in no uncertain terms that family is off limits."

    I mean, we all know that the right would NEVER attack Michelle Obama.

    Not really - all of her kids are grown: why isn't she employed now? Is it considered a sin in their eyes to find employment when you're a woman?

    I think it actually brings up some significant questions - our government is suppose to foster equality and freedom and further the belief that women have a right to work and should find employment as it suits their needs in their life. Does Romney believe that women have a right to work or are we going to see hints of male-favoritism as we did during the Great Depression if the government tries to step in to help with employment issues and exludes women in the process if he's in office?

    I don't think it's wrong to be a stay at home mom: I am one.

    But at some point you stop being a stay at home mom - their youngets child was born in 1981, making him one year younger than me. . . she is no longer a stay at home mom for her children - that is no longer her description in life and does not account for their actual beliefs at present.

    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.

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

    Honestly, I don't care if she works or not. Her not having a job means somebody who actually NEEDS the work has that job instead, yes?

    My boyfriend's aunt is the wife of a former marine and current military contractor. He spends 6-8 months a year overseas on assignment. She doesn't work. So what does she do with her time? She maintains the house, she works out, she goes shopping. But you know what else she does? She heads the local chapter for a group that focuses on transitioning returning soliders into the private sector and on aiding the families of soldiers who are currently deployed. She spends probably 40-50 hours a week organizing events and fundraisers, helping with administrative tasks, meeting with those who are being helped by the program, etc.

    And when she isn't working with the volunteer group she's here in Texas spending time with her grand children and grown daughter. And I really appreciate that, being somebody who personally never got much time with her grandparents.

    And you know....who cares if she didn't volunteer. She and her husband are perfectly okay with their arrangement, and they're the only people that really matter. They aren't using entitlement programs or sapping off the system to survive, so I say let 'em do what they want to do.

    Cool. Dont care. It was good for the Obama campaign to distance themselves from these comments.

    As it turns out, this Fox News talking point is a lie. She's not an advisory for Obama or the DNC.

    Surprised?

    Dude, is there any way you can downsize your sig? Maybe make it half-size or something?

    Romeny's worst enemy continues to be his own mouth. Apparently, he recently referred to how many horses he owns and elevators in his houses... I'm not gonna go look up a link for those comments. I'm sure they are there, but I don't really care to even read them. He's a multi-millionnaire who is gonna have trouble relating to average people during the campaign. Go figure.

    She is a Democratic Strategist, right? She was on the Anderson Cooper show as a political analyst, yes? You know the old "if it walks like a duck". And that is what the general public will know, yes?

    The guy is slipping. Can someone explain to me why he doesn't have a horse elevator?
