    shouldn't be attacked. He said that raising children isn't easy. He didn't say anything about which women should and shouldn't stay home to raise children. If this doesn't become a big deal, blame it on the corporate media, not the Obama campaign.

      Obama did what he had to do.  He would have gotten plastered if he tried to dive directly into this and take her side against Ann.  The problem does lie with the corporate media who helped the Romney campaign shape this exactly as they wanted.  

      I do think we on the netroots should say it loud and proud and Maddow and others should chime in.  But I don't have the happy delusion that it makes it a 'big deal.'  We still don't have the ability to shape the conversation by force of echo chamber the way the right can.  Even when the facts are on our side.  

      When the truth is only a matter of opinion, advantage goes to the liars.
