The War on Women Like Ann Romney

The internet has exploded at Democratic campaign adviser Hilary Rosen (who has visited the White House 35 times, and works for the PR firm that represents Sandra Fluke) who attacked Ann Romney, saying the stay at home mom "has actually never worked a day in her life."

So many emotions: anger at Rosen and all the feminazis she represents, disgust at the personal attack on a mother of 5 who suffers from MS and survived breast cancer, and yet schadenfreude that the "War On Women" lie is blowing up in Democrats' faces and turning the tide in our favor for once. 

Rosen was attempting to launch a class warfare attack by acting as if only the super rich can afford to be stay at home moms.  She's so out of touch in her little liberal elite world that she has no clue what millions of women know: women of all classes sacrifice and forgo things to be with their children because it's important, not because they're lazy or rich.

Rosen tries to say "most" women can't afford to stay at home like Ann Romney, but if that's true, who's fault is it that times are still so tough now?!  If moms are forced to work, it's because the economy is so bad and we need a businessman like Mitt Romney who HAS run a business, unlike Obama, to fix what Obama has done to prolong this recession!

Liberals want the government to take over the role of daddy - Rosen bemoans the hypothetical woman "whose daycare funding is being cut off because of the Romney-Ryan budget."  How about the fact that that woman's dependence on government-funded daycare is a result of the Obama economy not giving her better opportunities?  How about the woman who can't be a stay at home mom anymore because of President Obama's lack of any kind of a budget or economic recovery plan?  And let's not forget that of the people who have lost their jobs under Obama, an astounding 92.3% of them are women!

Economics aren't Obama's only women problem.  Remember when his own staffers said his White House was a "genuinely hostile workplace to women" and "the president has a real woman problem."  Even Christina Romer said she "felt like a piece of meat."  Now this week comes the news that women on Obama's staff are paid 18% less than men.  I guess Obama talks so much about the female pay gap because he participates in it himself!

I think it's clear who's waging the real "War on Women."

The War on Women is essentially a War on Femanazis. Ann Romney has singlehandedly done the amount of work that all the femanadzi women put together cannot do in a lifetime.

You said: "She's so out of touch in her little liberal elite world that she has no clue what millions of women know: women of all classes sacrifice and forgo things to be with their children because it's important, not because they're lazy or rich."

Meanwhile Mitt Romney said: “This is a different world than it was in the 1960s when I was growing up, when you used to have Mom at home and Dad at work. Now Mom and Dad both have to work whether they want to or not, and usually one of them has two jobs."

So does this make him an out of touch liberal? Or perhaps we do in fact live in a different world these days.

Rosen's point was not that stay at home moms aren't hard workers. In context she was saying that Ann Romney doesn't know what it's like to be a woman who has to work a job and raise kids.

Also your 92% of job losses being women statement is disingenuous. #1 the recession actually lost more male jobs altogether, they were just on the front end because of them being construction and manufacturing jobs. #2 The female job losses were those of teachers and state workers who lost their jobs because of cuts at the state level, mostly in Republican states. And those wouldn't have had to happen if DC Republicans hadn't done so much to block Democratic stimulus programs to protect those jobs until the recession ended.

The only point I'll give you credit for his Obama paying his female staffers less. I hope he see's the heat he's taking for it and changes that. But other than that, Democrats almost always go out of their way to try to empower women and level the playing field for women. You have scant evidence to the contrary.

I believe that each woman has its own disposition. However, it doesn't mean that since Rosen started the argument, everybody would go to the side of Romney. Each women has a choice on whatever journey she wants for her life, as long as she if happy with that decision then we can't judge her. I know famous women in business would agree.
