    attack Ann for not working... she will immediately come bouncing back as have many (especially working religious women) and say only snobs think that working taking care of children while hubby works is not highly valuable.  It allows Ann, who has had a life of riley, to be on the side of the working at home women.  Stupid is what it is.  And again had Rosen hung out with working at home mothers like my mother she would have seen how her remarks could easily be used by Romney to be able to have what she doesn't have, some connection to women who don't have money.  This is because Rosen is in a bubble of weathy women who have it easy and she is rich.  We don't need these type of Democrats speaking for us.

      identify with Ann Romney.  No one today takes offense at being told that if they stay at home they "aren't working."

      What stay-at-home mothers fully realize today is that they are extremely FORTUNATE to have the choice to stay home rather than being forced to work (and I mean OUTSIDE the home, for heaven's sake) in order to keep afloat.

      So please knock off the 1980's gunk about the "controversy" over "career v. stay-at-home"  mothers.  It is an archaic and ridiculous argument.  No one even talks about freaking "career v. motherhood" any longer.

      •  livjack... yeah, then why is Obama (0+ / 0-)

        going ape shit over Rosen's remarks... this is not what they want and not what I want.  But if she is stupid enough to actualy go into the 1980's gunk without even knowing it, then you have a problem. Like why is she a spokesperson for the Democrats?  It seems to have traction for lots of women who can't relate to Romney... their base... and yes, people do talk about "career v. motherhood"  Rosen for one, Ann Romney for two thanks to Rosen, and now Obama for three.  Tell them to knock it off and see how far you get.
