    Obama on Moms Who Stay Home to Raise Kids: 'That's Not a Choice We Want Americans to

    While I editorialized the title of this thread, here's what was said:

    "Sometimes, someone, usually mom, leaves the workplace to stay home with the kids, which then leaves her earning a lower wage for the rest of her life as a result. And that’s not a choice we want Americans to make."

    Obama on Moms Who Stay Home to Raise Kids: 'That's Not a Choice We Want Americans to Make' | The Weekly Standard

    Now, what I would hope what he meant to say was something like "...that's not a choice we want Americans TO HAVE to make...", that's simply not what he actually said.

    Re: Obama doesn't want Moms staying home to raise their kids. Wants the state to do i

    Americans wouldn't have to make that choice if the government didn't cause Mom to have to be in the workplace...in the first place.

    Thanks to almost a hundred years of liberals changing our society, Moms have no choice...they have to work. So what is the liberal solution?...more nanny state.

    Obama...the sooner you and your ilk are gone, the better.

    Staying at home was a choice I made. No regrets. My kids are wonderful.
    However, I think his point was that my old age will be fairly impoverished. 10 years of no income does tend to put a downer on retirement plans.

    Personally I think someone that looks reality in the eye and recognizes that most families need two incomes these days and plans to do something about it to assist ??

    It's still your choice.

    While I think you are right- Obama meant ...."to have to make", Obama, like many authoratarians has alot of trouble realizing that not every one shares his socio-political views. Thus, he can fail to make even a token acknoweldgement that these other views exist, at all.

    But only if the village is progressive. After all, if it is not progressive, its is not a village .

    Actually, if your OP or your source was honest, it (or you) would have explained that he was talking about how the lack of pre-school programs causes mothers who want to work to have to stay home because there's no pre-school program to enroll the children in.

    No, I explained that. He wants the state to raise children, not Moms.
