Democrat Adviser Fires First Shot in the Real War Against Women
Soccer moms take notice! Democratic strategist and DNC adviser Hilary Rosen, who is a frequent visitor to the White House, says that Ann Romney “has actually never worked a day in her life.” Rosen was being interviewed by CNN’s Anderson Cooper about the “war on women.”
Well, now you know who is really behind the war on women. It’s liberal Democrats. Can you imagine if some man had said that a mother of five children has never worked a day in her life? Try it some time and see what kind of response you get from a mother of one let alone a mother of five.
My two daughters-in-law have two children, and I can tell you that they work very hard. They are usually exhausted at the end of the day. My business partner has seven children. I can’t begin to tell you how hard his wife works.
Ann Romney tweeted this response:
“I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work.”
I thought Democrats were all about “choice.” The only choices that liberals believe in are the ones that they choose for women.
Immediately after the stupid statement by Rosen, the Obama propaganda machine went into damage control made. But Rosen kept attacking stay-at-home working women:
“I’ve nothing against Ann Romney. I just don’t want Mitt using her as an expert on women struggling $ to support their family. She isn’t.”
Rosen just doesn’t get it because she’s a Democrat. “Most women in America — let’s face it — don’t have [the choice to stay at home and raise their children]. They have to be working moms and home moms. And that’s the piece that I am not hearing from the Romney camp.”
If our tax and regulatory burden were not so great, many women who would like to stay at home could stay at home.
President Obama got involved in the debate over working women when he claimed “that after his two daughters were born, he and his wife — both Harvard Law School graduates — could not afford the ‘luxury’ of having her stay home with the children.” Give me a break. It sounds like he and Michelle were living on the edge of poverty. Here’s the reality as reported by CNS News:
In 2005, when Obama began serving in the U.S. Senate (and his daughters turned 4 and 7), he and his wife were earning a combined annual income of $479,062. Barack Obama was paid a salary of $162,100 by the U.S. taxpayers, and Michelle Obama was paid $316,962 to handle community affairs for the University of Chicago Medical Center.
Now who’s out of touch with working women?
