Democrats Will Bring the Troops Home

Thank you Hilary Rosen. In one small statement you have leveled the playing field in the Democrats’ contrived war for womanhood, started with President Obama’s birth control policies and amplified by Sandra Fluke’s comments. No question the Dems’ had benefited from the fallout associated with the media’s presentation of these incidents regardless of one’s take or beliefs on the issues themselves.

On CNN Ms. Rosen made the following statement in reference to Ann Romney, stay at home mom of 5 boys and Mitt Romney’s wife of 43 years:

she “has actually never worked a day in her life.”

Thank you Hilary Rosen for expressing your elitist view of women who “choose” motherhood and traditionalism as how they wish to live their lives. Your statement offends and invalidates women on the left, right, married, single, young, old, minority, southern, northern, eastern, western and in-between. It also includes the founder of this site. You can take solace, though, that you are not the first to express this lean toward a conservative woman. Teresa Heinz-Kerry, speaking of First Lady Laura Bush, said

“I don’t know if she’s ever had a real job–I mean since she’s grown up.”

And we can all remember the subtle and not so subtle attacks on Sarah Palin concerning her motherhood.

Thank you Hilary Rosen for your faux apology as given here:

“Let’s put the faux ‘war against stay at home moms’ to rest once and for all. As a mom I know that raising children is the hardest job there is. As a pundit, I know my words on CNN last night were poorly chosen. In response to Mitt Romney on the campaign trail referring to his wife as a better person to answer questions about women than he is, I was discussing his poor record on the plight of women’s financial struggles.

As a partner in a firm full of women who work outside of the home as well as stay at home mothers, all with plenty of children, gender equality is not a talking point for me. It is an issue I live every day. I apologize to Ann Romney and anyone else who was offended. Let’s declare peace in this phony war and go back to focus on the substance.”

So this means that she apologizes only “if you are offended”. And she wants to go back to the ‘real war’, not this “phony war” that she herself initiated.

Thank you Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen, with strong ties to President Obama and the present administration. In your at least 35 visits to the White House and 5 visits with the President himself, (by the way that’s 23 more visits than Former CIA director and current Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta) did you notice that the women who work there make on average 18% less than the men. And that of those who have lost jobs in this country since the man you visited took office, 92% of them were women. (I love how the fact checkers are challenging this statistic while admitting it is true)

Will President Obama call Ann Romney, because she was ‘attacked’ by a political commentator over women’s issues, as he did Sandra Fluke?

I fully suspect the political “war on women” is over. Thank you,Hilary Rosen.


  1. The Democratic War on Housewives might be over but there are other fronts

    The Democrat Party War on Class

    The Democratic Party War on Prosperity

    The Democrat Party War on the Millennial Generation

    The Democratic Party War on Unborn Women

  2. The Lorax says:

    Saying someone hasn’t worked a day in their life is not the same as saying that a woman is a prostitute and wants to be paid to have sex, and that we should all have a videotape of it.

    This is why your party is losing women by 20% right now. Totally and completely tone deaf.

    I took the Rosen comment to be about the privilege that Ann Romney has had in life. People like my mom never had the choice to be a stay at home mom. Hilary Rosen is an idiot? Of course, she’s a talking head!

    This is a manufactured story. The issue isn’t Ann Romney never having a job, it’s the feigned “I’m just like you!” attitude the Romneys are, again, manufacturing, to somehow trick middle class people into believing that they aren’t so different, after all.

  3. Randy in Richmond says:

    This is as real as the stories that Republicans have a war on women. What Rosen said is not being manufactured. It’s all the cable news outlets, the print media, this medium, and all the social medias that are fueling this story–not the Romneys. And give it a few days, the polls will change.

  4. Randy in Richmond says:

    Apparently our President is meeting with and taking council from one referred to as “an idiot” by one of his supporters.

  5. The bottom line is that if we had more Ann Romney’s raising great kids who become leaders and producers rather than takers, America would be a better place.

    Yeah, they have gobs of resources. So what? I know plenty of rich parents who went on to have lazy children with terrible values.

    Ann Romney is a hero. We need more like her. The tone-deaf ones are the ones who fail to recognize her 5 great accomplishments.

  6. The Lorax says:

    She raised great kids. So do a lot of people despite their economic status. The point is Ann Romney doesn’t know the struggles of ordinary people, which so far neither of you have really refuted.

  7. Hey you, Lorax. Know anyone with MS? I know many. Many. Some no longer living. Disease is the great equalizer. Ann Romney knows struggles. Of illness and raising kids. Money does not insulate one from reality. Actually, extreme wealth often turns out bad kids. Kudos to both Romneys and their family.

    You are really starting to tick me off.

  8. Randy in Richmond says:

    Why should I refute your point when my point has nothing to do yours? Hillary Rosen said a stay-at-home-mom, you can fill in any name you want, “actually never worked a day in her life”. Women hearing or reading this, for the most part, are not applying caveats such as financial status or place in society–because it doesn’t change the requirements for the job. Rosen invalidated women who work outside the home as well because , gee, when they get home from their outside jobs, there’s no more work to do.

    Thank you Hilary Rosen.

  9. I’m not saying she does or doesn’t, but why would any thinking person give a damn if Ann Romney “knows the struggles of ordinary people”? What matters is a) if Obama or Romney would be a better president and b) what the worldviews of them/their parties are.

    Obama was going out of his way to make a category b) type argument and pick a fight about Romney’s party’s view of women. And it blew up in his face.

  10. Michelle Obama might have had a bit of trouble knowing the struggles of ordinary people, too, four years ago, and that didn’t seem to bother you at all, Lorax.

  11. Ryan Morgan says:

    Ditto Teresa Heinz-Kerry in 2004.

  12. The Lorax says:

    Hey, it’s not MY point. And I said Hilary Rosen is a dumbass. Just dispelling it for y’all. Well the Romney campaign, unlike the Obama campaign, hasn’t done a good job of showing any “normal” roots.
