CNN liberal commentator: Ann Romney never worked a day in her life

What do 2008 and 2012 have in common?

The war on conservative women

CNN commenter Hilary Rosen lit into Ann Romney for never having worked a day in her life:

And Rosen is doubling down on Twitter:

Ann Romney inaugurated her own Twitter account with a response:

Update:  Rosen, a senior executive at communications firm SKDKnickerbocker, already is putting her spinning skills to work, posting a blog post at HuffPo late tonight trying to explain away her nasty comment.  The comment section there should get interesting.

Twitter is on fire – Irish Spy:

CNN liberal commentator: Ann Romney never worked a day in her life

Neither has Obama, so not quite sure what her point is…

It must really tick Ms. Rosen off that, before the 2008 election, a study found that many young women wanted to stay home and raise their children instead of continuing to pursue a career. I remember reading about the DISMAY of their older counterparts in the women’s movement that these younger women didn’t want to juggle careers and family- they seemed dissatisfied with their own childhoods. Of course, that was BEFORE the economy tanked. Now, those same young lawyers, managers, engineers and investment bankers HAVE TO work in Obama’s economy.

    It’s a choice; but, the value of a mother raising her children, especially in their early years, cannot be underestimated or overvalued. For most people, it will require a certain sacrifice of material wealth. It is about identifying and setting the right priorities.

Feel the tolerance, as it suffocates the life our of your liberty and mine.

Obama and his ilk are just warming up their class-warfare engines. Our country has sunk so low.

OKAY. Now they’ve got my blood up. Three cheers and praise motherhood!!! Ann Romney decided that being the primary care-giver and influence on her children was more important than having her value as a human being, a woman, determined by the fact of a paycheck.

The commies amongst can suck fumes for all I care. They have, in their pursuit of “equality,” done more to harm our families and to this nation than we can ever possibly measure, except to look at the sorry state of our current fiscal nightmare — a direct result of women getting out of the home and failing to bring up their children with a work ethic that does honor to the sacrifice of the millions of MEN who have given their lives for this country.

Feminism in all its guises is a disgrace to this nation. I’m a woman and I can say what I like.

    Ouch -so you blame women for the nation’s financial problems.

      Women believed a lie and are just as much to blame for our economic woes as are men.

      Apparently you are unfamiliar with the book Red Feminism by Kate Weigand and the role played by feminist women in subverting Founding principles, a role that has reaped great benefit to the Communist cause here in America. Yes, women have much to answer for in their support of the dismantling of America.

        BannedbytheGuardian in reply to HarrietHT. | April 12, 2012 at 2:49 am

        Like finally giving women the vote in 1920?

        BTW were they taxed prior to this ?

          Oh yeah, that is EXACTLY what she is talking about. Not anything she actually listed. No, she’s all about repealing women’s suffrage. Just like anyone who objects to the out-of-control manipulative racial politics on the left is all about going back to slavery. *snort*

          Another example of Leftists being too dishonest to live in a society based on trust.

      I certainly wouldn’t blame all women but I blame the type of woman who would vote for Barack or for Clinton because they believe the democrats care about them and want to take care of them. If it weren’t for women looking to the government as a sugar daddy… Obama would have approval ratings in the basement.

      And yes, I’m saying this as a woman.

        Aw I could say that Ann found her own Sugar Daddy but I’ll pass.

          Uncle Samuel in reply to BannedbytheGuardian. | April 12, 2012 at 5:11 am

          Sir or Madam, That is the least gracious and most ill-considered thing you have typed on this blog thus far.

          It has been well-proven that many of the problems in our culture, whatever socio-economic or ethnic community, are due to poor, unreliable or perverse mothering and fathering during the stages of development, intrauterine through adolescence.
          A. The absence of good: nurture, environment, modeling, supervision, training, discipline, values, priorities.
          B. Presence of bad: abuse, alcoholism/addiciton, apathy, absence, abandonment, adultery, anger/conflict/violence, contempt.

          These are the roots of psychosis, sociopathy, personality disorders, criminal behavior, inability to flourish and achieve.

          God designed men to be priests, shepherds of their homes, to teach, guide, pray, provide, protect. One of the words for man in Scripture (Zakar) means ‘call to remembrance’ – it is the male’s intended role to keep the family reminded of God, to guide them within and live before them the word, will, commandments and dominion, Kingdom of God. Women are partners, equals, not subservient. The couple are to love, cherish, respect, serve one another.

          Too many men are not protectors of women, but predators. Not priests, but power-mongers. Not providers, not prayerful, but emotionally, physically abusive, unavailable or absent to their children. Many women have been hurt, abandoned by fathers, boyfriends, husbands…and now they are bitter, angry and afraid to trust.

          Our culture is now almost contemptuous of mothering and fathering. Women and men who have children are called ‘breeders’…those who stay home to rear them are looked at as slackers…lazy. What used to be the norm is now scorned.

          Abortion and contraception, the belief in the entitlement to sexual gratification (sexual rights) fostered by agenda groups and the media have changed us as a people. We have almost lost our parenting skills and instincts. We have lost respect for human life. We have lost our humanity – become almost dehumanized.

          This is the Western tragedy.

          Brendon Carr in reply to BannedbytheGuardian. | April 12, 2012 at 7:38 am

          Mitt Romney met Ann Davies during her sophomore year of high school, his senior year. By the time Mitt graduated high school in 1965 the two knew that they wanted to marry. It’s plain to see that the two of them still adore and respect each other. That means they’ve been in love coming up on fifty years now, by the way.

          There are many reasons to be envious of Mitt Romney, but for my money that’s the biggest one.

          And if Ann Romney was able to identify 17 year-old Mitt Romney as a “sugar daddy” in 1964, rather than a kind, handsome, and capable kid from a good family, hats off to her.

          17 year olds are impressed by hot making out. Perhaps he did some sugar daddyo stuff – tricks he learnt from Grand daddy to please all those wives in Mexico.

          The LDS secret ?

          Gosh…it would have been nice to have a Sugar Daddy to help buy my boys some shoes and help pay the electric bill when they were young.
          I would have loved to raise my own kids instead of having a babysitter do it.

Women who are working in the Obama White House make 18% less than the men. How can this be?

    Neo in reply to kay. | April 12, 2012 at 12:19 am

    If there is a “war on women” and if it is over contraceptives, wouldn’t be called the Trojan war.

    Brendon Carr in reply to kay. | April 12, 2012 at 7:41 am

    If Barack didn’t give off such a strong hint of mint, I’d swear he was a Leykis 101 man.

Perhaps Rosen is envious. There is a good and justifiable reason why that is one of the seven deadly sins.

If they can afford it, and Ann chooses to, then it is ideal that she is a full time homemaker and mother of their children. This is not a deficit by any stretch of the imagination. To criticize this entirely natural lifestyle is a war on women and traditional — as in natural — relationships. Surely raising children in a stable family is of principal importance.

Both me and my husband agree: Raising kids is the hardest thing we’d ever done.

Ann Romney also had that little health problem to overcome: cancer.

I’ve not seen any evidence Hilary Rosen has ever done a day’s work in her life, though – although the fact she is in her current job indicates she got there somehow, maybe the same way Soledad O’Brien did.

On Twitter, Team Barry’s Axelrod and Messina are already running as far and as fast as they can, demanding she apologize.

    Heh!

    The army of SAHMs is quite vast… The Democrats will find that out soon enough.

    I know – I’m one!

I am not a Romney fan, but 0bama and his supporters might help me change my mind.

Children need their mothers, and being a mother is hard work.

    Terri in reply to Milwaukee. | April 12, 2012 at 7:11 am

    “I am not a Romney fan, but 0bama and his supporters might help me change my mind.”

    I think that is part of the plan.

SKDKnickerbocker. That woud be the same firm that Anita Dunn works (shills) for. Coincidence, I don’t think so.

1. Afaic the bigger outrage is Rosen’s disavowal of ‘War on Women’ and blaming it on Republicans. The Obama Campaign may or may not have used the phrase, but their sockpuppets are screaming it as loud as they can.

The fact that she tells such a flagrant lie indicates that Left knows its ploy is backfiring.

2. When Hilary Rosen headed the RIAA, her ‘work’ involved getting Congress to usurp the public domain on behalf of big media companies. Cf. SOPA.

Rosen’s encore? Whitewashing the Gulf oil spill on behalf of BP.

3. I’m not typing what I think of Rosen. Emily Litella would have known what to say. (Gilda, you are remembered!)

IMO the Left blundered by putting the spotlight on Ann Romney:

1. Romney vs. Obama? Could go either way. Obama has the advantages of incumbency.

2. Mr. & Mrs. Romney vs. Mr. & Mrs. Obama? No contest.

great unknown | April 12, 2012 at 1:12 am

You can’t blame her for not knowing about raising children. She and her girlfriend never adopted. http://www.nypost.com/p/pagesix/item_Ev0ht9hSRKt2YQhiJLxwLJ

    OMFG, you cannot make this stuff up.

    Another massive #FAIL on Team Obama. Collossal, HUGE failures lately, @sandrafluke, the war on women, this #Trayvon thing (nothing reveals how their plans are laid and ready to uncork like that one – it would never have launched if Zimmerman’s name had been Sanchez)

    Wake up people!

    Obama and all his court are phonier than a 3 dollar bill.

    In the HuffPo post that Bill linked, she says she has two (adopted) children.

CarsInDepth.com | April 12, 2012 at 1:32 am

Hilary Rosen @hilaryr
When I said @AC360 Ann Romney never worked I meant she never had to care for her kids AND ear a paycheck like MOST American women! #Truth

In which case, neither has Hilary Rosen, who is childless.

delicountessa | April 12, 2012 at 1:35 am

Sorry guys, I didn’t see that the same way you did. To me what she meant was that Ann Romney didn’t have to sacrifice any level of financial security when she made that decision. She is right. She worded it badly but even so, I don’t have an issue with it now that I’ve seen the entire clip.

    Even if I accept your generous assessment – which I don’t – just what business is it of hers how Ann Romney choose to live her life?

      delicountessa in reply to jimg. | April 12, 2012 at 2:27 am

      Because she was asked her opinion and Mitt Romney invoked his wife on the campaign trail when talking about women and the economy. While I think the “she’s never worked a day in her life” was a bit much, her point that Ann Romney hasn’t had to worry about how to put food on the table or pay the bills because she chose to stay home with the kids is valid.

        Yet this Ms. Rosen, who is very well off and comfortable herself, and does not struggle to “put food on the table” sees herself as eminently qualified to speak on behalf of poorer working women.

        Mitt has brought up his wife on the campaign trail AS HIS WIFE – not as his chief economic guru. She campaigns with him, and *gasp* has conversations with all sorts of women. Which she and Mitt then discuss, as he seeks her input and opinion on what she is seeing and hearing out there from other women.

        No Liberal woman, no matter how wealthy or privileged, EVER gets told that she has no clue about the problems of women by the Convenient Feminism Industry. Teresa Heinz Kerry was never told to STFU. Ms. Rosen engaged in a calculated, deliberate attempt to launch a “rich bitch Stepford Wife” narrative about Ann Romney, and it blew up in her face. And I for one was cheering when it did.

        ohiochili in reply to delicountessa. | April 12, 2012 at 8:22 am

        Sure..I get you. Promoting class warfare is valid. If Ann Romney could stay home with her kids, good for her. She was fortunate enough to do so.

    Milhouse in reply to delicountessa. | April 12, 2012 at 8:38 am

    So why is that relevant? What point could she have been making?

Obama/Rosen are picking the wrong fight. To read this has really pissed me off. Hilary Rosen is still living in the 60’s — to run down “moms” is totally, freaking disgusting.
Being a stay at home mom of 5 children is a blessing to children. “Obama/Rosen women are the “hippy, pot smoking generation” need to get over the 60’s. The only women who think like Obama/Rosen are the grey old hags, nags, and 60 war protestors, sent their children to live in “communes” while they protested the Viet Nam war, had their abortions, and burned their bras. The children they didn’t abort —- they gave away. Everyone else raised the liberal 60’s women’s children. What a disgusting generation!!!!!
Rosen liberal types’ have children “out of wedlock,” by multiple fathers, and find a “good family mom” intimidating. Believe me . . . these liberal women are “Challenged” when it comes to family stability.

          Stay at home with a maths masters? Hey no surprise American kids are ranked very low in maths. Perhaps she could do some tutoring between cleaning the bath & washing your sox.

          She is needed out there Sragging America’s kids back into the top 30.

          Banned, that reply to Doc was so lame. I guess she let down the children of the world by staying home with her kids. It takes a village, you know.

          BannedbytheGuardian in reply to DocWahala. | April 12, 2012 at 9:04 am

          Ohio -not the children of the world. Many of them are zooming up the charts passing America by .

          So you think that someone with a maths ability & who has had significant resources put into her should not tutor a few hours a month to help out?

          But most likely her only customers will be Asian.

          Also it ain’t no village out there.

          DocWahala in reply to DocWahala. | April 12, 2012 at 9:18 am

          I see Banned used the word “free” MRS Doc… This implies she is imprisoned. Interesting insight to your mind-set: SAHMs are prisoners. Is that what you really think? No wonder the liberal mindset is so out of touch.

          I guess Banned did nit see where I wrote “supports” her. This was her choice, not my demand. And loosing her salary did impact our income, but you know what? Our boys spend more time with their mother now, and don’t see her at the end of her day.

          As for washing my sox, don’t all liberals view us conservatives as backwards country bumpkins? Us hillbillies don’t wear shoes, let alone sox. As for cleaning the bath, well, that’s what our under paid, illegal immigrant domestic help is for.. After all, liberals also think of us as wealthy abusive plantation owners.

          DocWahala, went to the movies, watched “Saving Private BannedbytheGuardian”. It was a 30 second Obama re-election commercial, produced my Jimmy Gimme, starring Lady WaaWaa, with special effects by Me-Me-Me Studio.

          Thank you, Banned! You just made me understand something profound that I couldn’t wrap my mind around before: The left’s disdain for SAHMs.

          With your disparaging comment about DocWahala’s wife with a Masters degree in Math staying at home to raise her own children instead of everyone else’s, it really made the lightbulb come on. In a liberal’s twisted, communist mind, she is not providing for the entirety of society. She needs to do her “fair share” for the good of the public, and she is reneging in her duties by tending to her own. Think of the “children of the state” that could benefit from her expertise that never will because she selfishly hordes all her skill and know-how for her own family!

          That is the heart of the matter for a liberal– “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.”

        @banned

        Why people like you think you should tell others how they should live their lives is beyond me.

BannedbytheGuardian | April 12, 2012 at 3:05 am

Can we get back to Seamus?

Ms. Rosen is logically inconsistent, even within her own warped narrative. If the fact that Ann Romney has not suffered the trials and tribulations of most working mothers disqualifies her to speak, does that not ALSO disqualify Ms. six-figure-salary-with-a-nanny Rosen from presuming to be their mouthpiece? Yet she has no qualms opining.

Uncle Samuel | April 12, 2012 at 5:26 am

Truth is – Rosen and her chosen lifestyle (like famous Hollywood parents) are statistically likely to produce children with disoriented, fragile, malformed identities, addictions, emotional dysfunctions, depression, distress. Think Chastity Bono.

Mitt worked hard, so Ann didn’t have to? Is that Rosen’s thought? What an incredibly poorly executed statement. I will be the first to say how grateful I am for my husband’s hard work/long hours that allow me to stay home and raise our children. I tell him that all the time. First and foremost, we must leave this earth a better place than how we found it. By staying home and raising/homeschooling our children, we feel that we are on our way to accomplishing that. For Rosen to diminish women who place their children’s wellbeing above the almighty dollar and next “must have” fad is utterly disgraceful, shameful, and disingenuous. If a woman chooses to work outside the home, that is her choice; but to be ridiculed for staying home? Oh, my! Because raising children to be responsible stewards is SUCH an easy task……

The notion that stay-at-home moms don’t work is usually voiced by people who don’t know any SAHMs.

Many years ago, when I was expecting child #4, during a prenatal visit the doctor asked me whether I worked. I just looked at him for a good 30 seconds, which forced him to look up from his paperwork. I said, “I’m sure you mean to ask if I work outside the home,” then smiled and waited. It took him another 15 seconds or so to ask sheepishly, “So, do you work outside the home?”

I wonder if he ever made that mistake again.

So Rosen is not pro choice?
And what work exactly does Rosen do?
And who cares for her children, if she has any?
If she is married, what does her husband’s work consist of?
By what authority is she allowed to judge others?
The Left is losing it, picking on stay at home Moms.

Strike Eagle | April 12, 2012 at 7:05 am

Thanks to Obama’s economy, millions of women don’t have the option to work — be nice if Ms. Rosen worried about them

so woman fought for the right to choose and some are pissed off that some still chose to raise a family.
typical liberal crap.

Think Progress thinking (?): Herman Cain isn’t black enough and now Ann Romney isn’t woman enough. And, I’m not paying enough. Enough already.

I wonder if Ann Romney has always been a proud American unlike Mobama.

Who would have ever guessed that the class envy card would be played.

MaggotAtBroadAndWall | April 12, 2012 at 9:09 am

Democrats invented the “war on women” meme. There are a gazillion video clips of Debbie Wasserman Shultz using the phrase, as well as other Democrat Congress critters. Now it’s not polling well with the mushy middle independents who recognize how retarded the notion is. So the Democrats send out a woman to deny the Democrats ever went down the “war on women” road. This is why I despise Democrats. They refuse to accept responsibility for ANYTHING. Obama blames everybody except himself for his failed policies and now some talking head strategist can’t even take responsibility for Democratic rhetoric.

Whatever.

I say let Rosen keep squealing. We need something to rally around to unite Republicans after the primaries. She’s providing it.

BannedbytheGuardian | April 12, 2012 at 9:09 am

Are you sure there are no other wives that he could trot out?

    You’ve already showed us how little you think of SAHMs, now you change gears and say something about “other wives”. Either you’re disappointed that he doesn’t have two r three ex-wives that you can point to and call him a hypocrite, or you just can’t fathom men really are capable of monotonous relationships, where they HONOR their vows.

    DocWahala, was going to go watch the sequel to “saving private banned”, but found out was cancelled by Dumb-Donkey studio for lack of interest.

    @BannedbytheGuardian

    STFU

Out of curiosity, did your mom stay home to raise you?

Monotonous

DocWahala, loves the iPad, but sometimes forgets to make the screen big enough to see errors. Let’s hope SAHMWahala doesn’t see where I called marriage monotonous, cuz it sure ain’t!

LOL, who cares what the left says.

Raise 5 sons and not one of them serves our country. I don’t believe they did such a fine job.

I don’t care how much money they have and I don’t begrudge them for it. Good on them.

What stinks to high heaven is the elitisst think they are better than us.

The left hasn’t even begun to fight. Etch-a-sketch will lose in a landslide.

I ain’t biting. I don’t care how much the left smears these elitists. It’s just one elitist smearing another.

“Rosen, a senior executive at communications firm SKDKnickerbocker…”

Squier Knapp Dunn Knickerbocker- As in Anita Dunn personal friend of Barack Obama and former White House Communications Director for Obama.

I have a nice white- collar job that I like, but I would love to stay home with my child. However, since the economy is in the toilet, that is not an option. I guess I could say the Obama Administration and their horrid handling of the economy took away
my right to choose.

Amazing. This time yesterday, I had basically decided to skip the “PotUS” box on the ballot come election day.

Now I’ll vote for Mittens just to spite this Rosen bitch.

Well done, Left. You made me willing to vote for a guy I actively can’t stand, whose supporters I actively hate.

    You mean, “You had decided to vote for Obama.”

      No, you drooling simpleton. I had basically decided to not reward Romney with a vote simply because he was running against Obama.

      I’m sorry if you consider my desire to not vote for a guy who’s biggest supporters insult me on a nearly daily basis as a “vote for Obama”.

      I mean, you’re allowed to be stupid if you want to…

“Get a REAL job. Be a stay at home mom.”

Seen on a bumper sticker.

My wife is a stay at home mom with just two kids, and believe me, she works EVERY day of her life, every waking hour.

Why are we surprised when the left demeans stay at home wives and mothers. I was a teenager in the sixties when the woman’s movement was just getting started. We were told that this would mean that woman would no longer be degraded by crude jokes, and men who considered woman no more than sex objects to be abused and belittled.
Many woman believed it. They burnt there bra’s, took jobs that at one time were only considered jobs men could do. We were told that anything was possible. That we could have it all, and they were right. We now have woman who act more like men than woman. They fist fight and put it on Utube. They use words that in years past even dock workers would be embarrassed to say out loud. Now because they can, they dress like sluts, and can drink themselves under the table like the biggest meanest guy in the joint. They abort their babies in record numbers to show that sex to them is no more than a one night stand good time. They live vicariously through their young daughters who they send out onto TV shows dressed like prostitutes.
Yes, the women’s movement has made life so much better for all of us. Not all, but far to many of todays woman are crude, rude, self centered, selfish and as far from being a real woman as a man could get. If a girl wants to remain a Virgin till wed, they laugh, if she wants to stay home and raise their children to be responsible adults they’re said to be old fashioned, if they enjoy making a home for their family and enjoy being there to meet them at the door, their considered mentally unstable. Do dumb to go out into the world and earn a salary.
Yes, we’ve got it all. But we lost so much.
My son is adopted, my husband was a career officer. He was gone almost three weeks out of every month for most of his career. As a flyer we never knew whether he’d come back dead or alive. Many of our friends were killed. Not in a war, but flying routine missions to keep up their proficiency.
My son wasn’t an easy kid. Once he almost got us thrown off the base. But when he ran in the door after school yelling Mom, I’m home, and then hugging me to death, staying home was the most wonderful thing I ever did. Was I rewarded? Oh yes, by a young man who knew how to treat a woman, who works hard every day. Who loves his country, his family and his God, Who understands that life has problems to be overcome and that earning a living to support your family is one of lives true rewards.
I know many woman would much prefer to stay home rather than work, but in these troubled times they must work. I respect these woman. I also respect woman who chose to work, but that was their choice, just like mine was to maybe not have as much money but to instead stay at home and raise my kids. It was my choice. If I don’t condemn them, they should not condemn me.

Amazing. This time yesterday, I had basically decided to skip the “PotUS” box on the ballot come election day.

Now I’ll vote for Mittens just to spite this Rosen bitch.”

Decency and family, it’s good of them to provide the flag to rally around, now if Mitt can just plant it, and make a solid stand for it, he’ll be more than a best of the bad choices President!

Eh, having read/heard some of her other comments, I guess you guys are right. This woman is one of “those.”

BTW, Hussein started this last Friday, saying that he and Michelle “didn’t have the luxury for her not to work.”

Right. More like, they couldn’t pass up that $300K/yr hospital “job.”

I don’t think they’re demeaning the role of mom. They’re just pointing out that, as the wife of someone with net assets of several hundred million, she’s never had to work outside of the home any day in her life. And she’s never had to worry about whether the next paycheck will cover the rent.

    “… she’s never had to work outside of the home any day in her life.” You should be Hilary Rosen’s coach. I love it as she keeps digging the hole deeper. The WH panic is a joy to watch.

    Rosen revealed her disdain for stay-at-home moms, for sure. And she reiterates the Left’s envy of privilege and wealth. It’s the feminazi line, e.g., Gloria Steinem saying marriage is slavery. I’ll bet Rush had more examples today.

If you listen to her comments, she was talking about this in the context of economic issues. Did you bother listening to her comments?

    JerryB in reply to jimbo3. | April 12, 2012 at 5:48 pm

    Yes. And you reiterate it without realizing the clear implication. It’s the same as saying that work outside the home, what you call “economic issues,” is what counts as work. In other words (feminazi-speak), raising kids is “work” in that it wears you out, but it in no way qualifies you to speak as a “working” woman.

    What you see as a distinction in the wording or context doesn’t amount to a substantial difference.

      jimbo3 in reply to JerryB. | April 13, 2012 at 4:05 am

      Just a reminder of reality: women or men who work in the home don’t get paid money for that work.

If you listened to Rush today he was talking about an interview that Ann Romney had a couple of years ago. In it she talked about when they first got married and were living in a one bedroom apartment with no carpets, and were eating macaroni and cheese several nights a week because they were trying to pay their way through college. According to her, both their parents were rich but didn’t think it was up to them to support their kids. She said they would never have dreamed of asking for money and their parents wouldn’t have given it to them. Now, that is what she said and we have no reason to believe she would lie. Many a rich man started out poor. I could name several here, but I will assume you know who I mean. I am not a Romney fan, and I plan to vote for someone else in the primary, but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t stand up for Ann when she is being maligned. The problem with liberals is they always say the government should stay out of women’s lives, but then they tell us we need free contraception, should abort our babies, and should, just to prove we’re woman, go out to work and put our kids in the hands of a babysitter etc. I just wish they’d get out of our lives altogether.

Well this was fun . Any movie about “Banned ” will be How to annoy 75 Pseudo Salt of the Earth types with mere questioning of their logic.

To Herm -yes My Mother also had 5 kids & we lived in borderline poverty -happy for us kids /miserable for adults.

When the no 5 was 11 months old she went to work in a factory & loved it. We had food on the table . At 11 years of age I looked after the baby & the 4 year old till I was 17 every morning & afternoon & did the weekly shopping.

So yes -work outside the house is good for families.

BannedbytheGuardian | April 12, 2012 at 8:00 pm

Also -working in the factory for 30 years allowed her to accrue a retiement savings & with the 100% owrnership of her home she was worth 400,000 on her exit.

And yes I got my rewards for my hard family work I did as inheritance (Btw no tax ).

    You realize, having 400k in asset would have made her part of the 1%… and not paying taxes…what about your “fair” share?

    Wonder if you realize you just described part of the “good old days” conservatives yearn for and liberals mock. A time when families worked together, and didn’t look for a govt program to take care of their kids. Try leaving a 4th old and 11month baby in the care of an 11 year old, and todays social workers would put all of you in three different foster homes and charge your mother with negligence.

    DocWahala, never been called salt of earth before… Salty, yes.

CNN liberal commentator: Ann Romney never worked a day in her life

Neither has Barack Obama but you don’t hear the blithering propagandist kvetching about that. And Obama’s the actual President, for Pete’s sake, not a contender for First Lady. Welllll…….

[…] better way to boost the voter turn out than to tell them that they are worthless.  CNN commentator Hilary Rosen summarily insulted millions of mothers when she declared that Ann Romney didn’t work a day in […]

[…] surrogate Hilary Rosen attacked stay-at-home moms saying that Ann Romney (who raised five boys) “never worked a day in her life”. […]
