Obama’s War on Women … Democrat Political Advier Hilary Rosen Attacks Mitt Romney’s Wife for being a Stay at Home Mom … “his wife has actually never worked a day in her life”

 

OBAMA’S WAR ON WOMEN …

Attention Women of America … Who is it that has a “War on Women”? It was the Barack Obama campaign that went on a full frontal assault on women and attacked Mitt Romney’s wife last night on CNN. Democratic strategist and DNC adviser Hilary Rosen stated that, “his wife [Ann] never worked a day in her life. So what do Democrats have against “stay at home” moms who raise their children?

Ann Romney’s debut on Twitter couldn’t have come at a more opportune time.

Ann’s first tweet came just moments after Democratic strategist and DNC adviser Hilary Rosen lobbed an insult at Ann Romney, suggesting that the 64-year-old mother of five and grandmother of 16 had never held a job.

From her Twitter page

“Guess what, his wife has actually never worked a day in her life,” said Rosen, who was being interviewed by CNN’s Anderson Cooper about the “war on women.”

And then, just like that, a familiar name popped up on Twitter: @AnnDRomney.

“I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work,” Ann tweeted.

More from the Daily Caller.

Think Obama and his minions do not think that Ann Romney is a great asset to her husband Mitt in the upcoming Presidential election? Why else would Obama’s attack dogs go after her and try and minimize her as a women? How pathetic and low is the Obama campaign for doing such a thong?

Top Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod also tweeted his disapproval: “Also Disappointed in Hilary Rosen’s comments about Ann Romney. They were inappropriate and offensive.”

Following the interview, Rosen herself tweeted, “I’ve nothing against @AnnRomney. I just don’t want Mitt using her as an expert on women struggling $ to support their family. She isn’t.”

Rosen kept tweeting, not appearing to back off of her comments.

“@AnnDRomney Please know, I admire you. But your husband shouldn’t say you are his expert on women and the economy,” said Rosen.

      the democrats must be stupid. i bet Ann Romney never took a government dime either like the democrat couch potatoes that have 10 kids so they can live off the government and not have to work.

    2. NGBoston on April 12th, 2012 11:02 am

      The way Rosen came out with this was just completely wrong.

      No woman should have to EVER defend themselves for being able to stay at home and raise children, nevermind FIVE of them!

      That is the HARDEST and most thankless job anyone can do. So undervalued! Honestly, I’m not really a huge fan of Whoopi Goldberg, and even she said it was wrong to say that about Ann Romney on The View this morning. Even the uber-Liberal Whoopster had a problem with it.

      Come on, Lady- how dare you!

      What a shame that the O’bams couldn’t live on his $100+ salary as a Illinois congressman. And with all his traveling — seems like even more of a reason for M’chell to stay home with their two girls. But wait, they are both pro-choice, they made the choice to have children; maybe they should have aborted them and saved all the money that they had to pay to take care of them. See, problem solved.

    4. Mary on April 12th, 2012 1:02 pm

      These liberals just prove that they have nothing nice to say except if it is about themselves. This woman is just jealous that her husband does not make enough money for her to stay at home. It is about time that we get class back into the white house. They feed off each other with their meanness and then they want to shove their agenda down our throats and if we disagree we are racist. Ann Romney is a lady and good for her being a stay at home mother , it sure shows as they are a wonderful family and her kids are great. Eat your heart out Hillary Rosen…… you lack class.

    5. rightknight on April 12th, 2012 1:06 pm

      Ms Rosen is fortunate, it may be presumed,
      to come from the Gay/Lesbian perspective
      in assessing other women of all callings.
      This insight may not have served ‘her’ well
      given the dissolution of the relationship
      with her own ‘significant other’. Wonder
      how ‘her’ children are doing since the breakup.

    6. A Texas Grandfather on April 12th, 2012 1:15 pm

      what a load of BS from Rosen. This woman has raised a family and helped with political campaigns for a long period of her life.

      Has Rosen raised five children? One should not make light of the tasks of a mother and homemaker.

      Lifes been a struggle for the Romney’s:

      Mitt Romney claims he made through college with hardwork like low income people. but a 1994 interview with his wife Ann Romney claims that Mitt Romney sold stock that his father gave him to make it through college.

      Mitt Romney is going around saying that he made all his money himself, aside from a loan from his dad to buy his first house.

      Journalists who buy that have short memories. I was living in Massachusetts when Romney first ran for the Senate, and remembered this interview with Ann Romney in the Boston Globe (by Jack Thomas, October 20, 1994; the abstract is here; the full text costs $4.95). Of her student days with Mitt at BYU, Ann said:

      “They were not easy years. You have to understand, I was raised in a lovely neighborhood, as was Mitt, and at BYU, we moved into a $62-a-month basement apartment with a cement floor and lived there two years as students with no income.

      “It was tiny. And I didn’t have money to carpet the floor. But you can get remnants, samples, so I glued them together, all different colors. It looked awful, but it was carpeting.

      “We were happy, studying hard. Neither one of us had a job, because Mitt had enough of an investment from stock that we could sell off a little at a time.

      “The stock came from Mitt’s father. When he took over American Motors, the stock was worth nothing. But he invested Mitt’s birthday money year to year — it wasn’t much, a few thousand, but he put it into American Motors because he believed in himself. Five years later, stock that had been $6 a share was $96 and Mitt cashed it so we could live and pay for education.

      “Mitt and I walked to class together, shared housekeeping, had a lot of pasta and tuna fish and learned hard lessons.

      yeah so he justifies cuting financial aid for poor kids,by claiming he got through college by himself but he was lying.

      Mitt Romney and Ann: the students “struggling” so much that they had to sell stock. « The Reality-Based Community

      P.S. His stock was worth over $250,000 in todays dollars and college is much more expensive today

      SM: I could honestly care less about Romney’s upbringing. I care about a President who is not going to destroy the US as Obama has. Sorry, but the US govt needs a Bain Capital done to it. Those are the cold hard facts. Keep what works and get rid of the redundancies and the depts that are failures.

      Sorry if I do not buy into the class warfare. I find it comical the Democrats would complain of Romney when they nominated JFK and more recently John Kerry, because they were just men of the common man.

    8. PublicEnemy2u on April 12th, 2012 1:50 pm

      If the Romneys “value women’s domestic work so much,” tweeted feminist author Jessica Valenti, “when will they discuss their plan for national paid parental leave?” And Slate’s Matt Yglesias wondered, “Do Mitt & Ann Romney think unemployed single moms have a full-time job? Do such moms deserve a living wage?” Or healthcare?

      All right, all right – enough of this ‘pile on’!

      Ms. Rosen was only communicating what she was instructed to say…

      The Obama Admin invent the “pot shots” they want voiced.

      Then if the statements backfire –
      Obama can stand up like the adult in the room and say something like,
      “Statements like these are unhelpful, let’s move forward in a way that promotes women’s choices not disparages women’s choices”.

      And yet, behind the scenes – Obama and his strategists were totally the ones who arranged this verbal attack on Ann Romney in the first place!

    10. flutter1 on April 12th, 2012 3:24 pm

      @NGBoston – Amen to that!

    11. paula on April 12th, 2012 3:44 pm

      Once again, true to form, the libs make an ignorant remark that they then have to backtrack and apologize for. Perfect record of doing this every week!

    12. katablog.com on April 12th, 2012 3:47 pm

      A woman raising five children isn’t an expert on women struggling to raise a family? Then who the heck is? Owebama? Moochelle?

      Owebama and Moochelle apparently couldn’t raise their family on a mere paltry $165k? Would that be because of Owebama’s perchance for golf or Moochelle’s perchance for vacationing in expensive places?

      Any mother learns economics really fast. She learns to shop and stretch the dollar, she learns to cook economical meals that give nutrition and that everyone still likes. She learns to economize on her time as she car pools and runs kids to sports, dance rehearsals and after school commitments while still being home to cook and clean on time. She learns to buy used clothing, pass clothing down, mend, alter, clean and keep the clothes sorted and picked up.

      The only thing Moochelle can properly advise Owebama on is where the most expensive vacation spots are and how to name her daughters as “senior advisers” to get the taxpayers to pay for their trips.

      This is the season of people saying stupid things that they did not think about before speaking. This Rosen woman, as a campaign manager, should be smarter than that. She’s not. Nor can she deliver an apology that doesn’t sound resentful and patronizing. She showed her contempt, and that is her true feeling in the matter. My Mom was a stay at home for most of the five of us growing up. We were very lucky for that. It’s a different world today, and harder for families. Mrs. Romney and Mrs. Bush laid it out correctly in their FOX interviews. You go girls.

    14. Waterboy on April 13th, 2012 1:10 am

      Just saying, but has anyone ever noticed that women named Hilary or Hillary tend to be fat and ugly.

      My apologies to all the Hillarys out there who are not fat and ugly.

      Hilary Rosen is a Democratic strategist and DNC adviser?

      Good grief, Charlie Brown!

    16. Dolf on April 13th, 2012 1:54 am

      @7

      all nice, but they are multi-millionaires.
      so who does the raising, she or hired staff?

      and while I do agree with the mother economics parts I don’t think it aplies for either the Obama’s and even less the Romneys.

    17. Rusty Bridges on April 13th, 2012 7:58 am

      Dolf, she raised them when they were a struggling young couple, they didn’t have a staff. This allowed Mitt to further his studies and career allowing him to reach the level they are at today. Nobody gave Mitt a dime.

      #9, what about Hillary Duff? Okay, she is still young we will have to wait to see what happens.

      Hey Hillary Rosen and the rest of you libs, please, please finally after all this time what experiemce does Obama have to run the country? Balance the budget? Has he ever balanced a check book? He couldn’t balance a plate flat on a table.

    18. ara on April 13th, 2012 8:25 am

      This is all wrong. if know one has notice the rise in crime when women started workin till now it more than doubled> over the past years> ummm wonder WHY! the Children don’t get the love they need to properly survive and Love again.

    19. PublicEnemy2u on April 13th, 2012 10:34 am

      It’s ok if you stay home with kids, if you need any help to do that from Uncle Sam then all I hear from most posters on this site is get off your ass and get a job. So it’s only a choice if you can afford it? Are you now defending jobless single moms who want to stay home. What hypocrites!

      “The way Rosen came out with this was just completely wrong.

      No woman should have to EVER defend themselves for being able to stay at home and raise children, nevermind FIVE of them!

      SM: Maybe if you can’t afford children, you should not have them. What a novel concept. Being a working mother or stay at home mom is quite different than having children you know you cannot afford and making others have to pay for them.

    20. NGBoston on April 13th, 2012 10:35 am

      #11-Dolf—Listen, I am going to call you out on this one, too.

      First of all, America and opinionated Europeans (such as yourself who are not even American Citizens) has to get their damn panties out of a knot over the fact that the Romney’s have MONEY. Did Mitt steal it? No, damnit- he worked for it. Why should he be condemned for being a successful businessman?

      Let me point out also, that even with some household held- Ann Romney made a CHOICE to put staying at home with her 5 Sons a priority. I do not think she should be judged upon making that SACRIFICE. Yes. damn it- I said it- and it IS/WAS a sacrifice for her to forgo any career of her own to make a nice, comfy and loving home life for her 5 Sons. From the looks of things, since none of them have been arrested and all are doing quite well- it was a POSITIVE INFLUENCE.

      I stand behind Mrs. Romney 100% and hope she gives it back to them right in between the eyes! The Romney’s are too nice, IMO, if they are going to survive and thrive for the rest of this campaign as well as in DC later on down the road- time to strike back a little. I understand and appreciate their manners, respect and elegance- but honestly- beyond the tough skin they both have grown- I think Americans would stand behind them even more should they vehemently object and mince no words about certain things they are being attacked for.

      GO ANN AND GO MITT!!!!!! You can do it.

      Anyone who says a stay-at-home mother has never worked a day in her life is living in an alternate reality. I am astonished at the ignorance of this Rosen person.

    23. rightknight on April 13th, 2012 1:27 pm

      There is something valuable about a Mother
      raising her children at home along with the
      help of their father. When the mom
      feels she has to provide a good portion
      of the income of the family, the ‘Government’
      is all too willing to insert itself into the void
      created by her time away.

    24. SUPER DAVE on April 13th, 2012 2:23 pm

      looks like Rosen has never worked to lose some of that lard off her head.

      …Wow….guess someone had to spell that one out for you, eh? The Owner and Editor of this blog just politely handed you your’e ass and I happen to love it. Get a clue and stop trying to tear down Ann Romney. I will tell you something else, this got enough women (Mother’s) both working outside the home and not pretty pissed that she said this and attacked a Mother of 5. Unless you not only delivered them and raised them, trust me when I tell you —-you don’t have a clue!

    26. Dolf on April 16th, 2012 7:28 am

      NGBoston,
      Didn’t say Romney’s wealth or how he got it.

      I only think its bs to compare a millionaire to a normale household.

      and my mother had 4 kids, studied and worked fulltime.

    27. NGBoston on April 16th, 2012 12:55 pm

      #26-Dolf-Well, much respect to your Mother Dolf for doing so.

      I still don’t believe the Romney’s wealth should be an issue. Romney EARNED his money, it’s call free enterprise and being a successful businessman. Did Mitt ever try to compare himself to an “average” income household. I don’t think so, but he does not look down at others either. He believes anyone capable should WORK FOR A LIVING.

      BTW, America voted Michelle and Barack Obama in to office as Millionares! He made almost $6MIL last year on his income taxes, of not more and he PAYS LESS FOR TAXES THAN HIS OWN PERSONAL SECRETARY. Explain the math to me because I am not quite sure how that works. He has been nothing but a SOCIALIST in Office who wants all of America to feed freely and social welfare and free health care for everyone. GAG!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    28. PublicEnemy2u on April 16th, 2012 1:40 pm

      to 25.NGBoston: Unless you not only delivered them (how did you guess I have delivered 2 babies, not mine) and I’ve raised 3 three of my own and 2 others. If mitt ran the country like he ran Bain he’d do this:
      1. He’d buy the US using Social Security “receivables” and public land value to
      leverage the loan
      2. Sell the public land that has no gas, oil or coal. Potable water suppies are money in the bank
      3. End social security
      4. sell the Oil/Water spinoff company and split the profits
      5. US goes bankrupt, seniors get the same treatment as Bain controlled companies pensioners:
      the middle class taxpayer picks up the tab

      #28 Public Enemy.

      Ok, so again- you get your proper respect for your Parenting abilities like millions of other Americans.

      However- the 5 bullet points are absurd. Unless you can back them up with proven facts (not over-exaggerated biased, & completely BOGUS statements or your opinions) then it is all a bunch of crap.

      As for #5- US goes Bankrupt—thanks to Obama-US Credit rating was DOWNGRADED during HIS 4 years in. Please, stop the BS bc if Obama stays in office another 4 years- we will be bankrupt.

      Here is some simple Math for you (AND IT IS FACTUAL) Barack Obama has OUTSPENT any and all LIVING US PRESIDENTS to date—COMBINED! Key word there—take ALL of their Administrations, combine-yes COMBINE the totals- and after 4 years in, Obama has EXCEEDED that amount.

      Let that sink in, please.

      America will NOT be fooled again. And, I paid almost $4.00 per gallon at the pump today. Are you KIDDING ME?????????
