  •  Ann Romney didn't have any hard choices to make (4+ / 0-)

    She sacrificed nothing by "staying home" with her sons, and she was going to be filthy rich whether she spent her days playing tennis or "working" at a conservative think-tank (that seems to be the preferred mode of employment for rich Republican wives these days).

    Did Ann Romney ever do volunteer work outside of the Mormon church? There is a long and noble tradition of wealthy housewives making a positive contribution to society through their unpaid work in non-profit organizations. Does this apply to Mrs. Romney or are her energies strictly limited to self-indulgent pursuits?

    •  It's true. Ann Romney, of course, (2+ / 0-)

      knows this. Everybody knows this.  But Ann Romney is a pretty blonde with poise.  She just needs to seem poised and sensible over this matter (Her being 'attacked' and she wins huge).  Asking her whether she's volunteered for something WE approve of is just another line of attack that'll have her smelling like a rose.....

      From Neocon to sane- thanks to Obama- and Kos.

        we, like Hillary Rosen, find her irresistable to attack but don't quite understand how easily she can jiu jitsu this stuff with just smiling and saying something normal.

        An NRA convention...FOX News pundits....?

        IMHO, I believe the more this issue stays in the news, the more the "average" person is going dig deeper and then begin to realize that the Romneys are not the average American family.

        I bet she didn't even raise those children alone, like my stay-at-home wife has to do, since I can't afford a butler and a au pair.
