    by faux outrage on this is simple:

    As Ann Romney herself pointed out, she hasn't had to struggle financially the way that most working mothers in this country have.  And that was Rosen's point too.  So they're not in disagreement and we should just move on.

    That's one more thing to add to my long list of small problems. --my son, age 10

    •  why move on? (8+ / 0-)

      I think it's a core difference between the Republicans and Democrats.

      The Republicans have no idea what it means to struggle financially to raise a family.

      Ann Romney "worked hard"? Well, sure. Now what about women who raise the family and need to earn money for food and clothing and health care? That's reality for far more Americans, which is the whole point of the difference between Democrats and Republicans.

        I relatives who are Republicans and are really struggling. Of course they blame the Dem's for causing the economic problems.

        People with hatred in their hearts never live up to their full potential. It's very sad.

          It's about the Republican Party's core message which is to not look out for anybody, but constantly attack struggling people for making poor "choices."

          Democrats believe we're in this together; Republicans believe each person is in it alone.

    •  It's even simpler than that (5+ / 0-)

      The message is that Ann Romney has always had the financial security to make any choice she wanted. Most American women don't have that economic choice. What's Mitt going to do to give them choices – including unfettered access to affordable contraception?
