Why do Democrats hate Mothers?
The Democrats continue to give us gifts. Here is NOW President Terry O'Neill on Ann Romney:
TERRY ONEILL: What would we be saying if Hillary Clinton had said this: that Ann Romney has never, has not worked for pay outside the home a day in her life? Thats my understanding thats an accurate statement, and that raises the exact issue that Hilary Rosen was trying to get to, which is do Mr. & Mrs. Romney have the kind of life experience and if not, the imagination, to really understand what most American families are going through right now? I think that that was what Hilary was getting out, and so she left out the words for pay outside the home.
Lack life experience and imagination because they raised their children? Are you freaking kidding me?
That's your modern day feminist I suppose. Why support woman in all walks of life when you can marginalize and demean some (stay at home Moms) while support those who choose to leave the kids with babysitters.

Actually NOW leaders tend lack the life experience of a hetero relationship.
They’re the ones who, in school, never got to go to the prom, never went out on a date (at least with a guy), and probably were the targets of derision.
And later made their lives’ goals the denigration of the male species.
Quick - hand this witch a bigger shovel! Or a backhoe!
Keep digging libs. I’ll put my wife against any of this losers. Although they’d probably try to pick her up.
Stupid feminist t*at
William Tell could not have hit the target more dead center.
I hope the lefty lesbos keep talking.....all the way to the election.
Another fetid lesbian spews hate?
Keep diggin’, honey!
Kind of like Obama and his job experience, Lack life Experience & Imagination, that also explains why he keeps repeating himself , punches above their weight
I heard a talk show caller this am say that if Mrs. Romney had taught 5 children at a govt run daycare (aka headstart) she would be proclaimed a hero by the left.
Doing it for your own kids is inferior.
Keep it up. This is huge winner. For us.
There is NO more important job than being a good Mom (AND a good Dad).
Neurosurgery, CEO’s, and illegal US Presidents included.
And its not even close.....
The libs turned it into a debate about stay at home mom's and the republicans fell into the trap letting the point of Obama's failure to be lost in the shouting.
No imagination? My mother had plenty. Dad did his best, but financially, it was tough providing for us, so Mom was the ultimate money saver. You would be surprised what all she could make out of an old piece of fabric. She could stretch one meal into three or four. We seldom threw out old clothes. Once I tossed an old blouse. Mom went into the garbage bag, pulled out the blouse and made it look good as new.
Mom knew what it was like to struggle. She grew up during the Great Deression. She had to scratch around to survive. These women may be liberated, but they don’t know what hard work is and how to survive. If things get tough, turn to the government for help. Some liberation.
Oh I get it. It's about the economy . Only if you pay to have someone else care for your children do you matter in the "real" world. By being selfish and not allowing others to financially gain from your children you are not an active contributor to the good of all society. You don't count
Neither does your husband. What kind of ego driven self serving clueless 1 per-center would allow for the mother of his children to go the traditional route when there are less fortunate out there?
Wait...working for NOW is a job????????
Nasty, soul-sucking Betty Friedan wannabe
Keep kickin’ that tar baby, Nags.
They call themselves ‘feminists’ when all they are is lesbians. Why do normal women even listen to these man hating failures? The only way they achieve any relevance, if only in their own eyes, is by creating an artificial, parallel unnecessary and unwanted world where up is down and black is white.
Since when have liberals ever demonstrated shame, except as a form of self hating guilt in support of the false premise of social justice?
“Why do Democrats hate Mothers?”
Because they made the CHOICE to HAVE children.
The WRONG choice, according to the leftist homicidal freaks.
blah blah blah
Just make a sandwhich woman!
OMG! WHAT. A. LAUGH! She’s never met my dear (college educated) daughter-in-love, mother of my two precious granddaughters - who happens to be giving both girls the-best-education we could have ever IMAGINED! (Pun intended!)
Sixty years ago, Hollywood created a phony image of mothers — Donna Reed, June Cleaver, etc. That type of mother hardly existed in real life, but the uppity leftwing writers and producers didn’t know that. They looked at their own empty Hollywood lives and began to despise the fantasy image they created. We’ve been watching and reading expressions of their hatred ever since.
This is why they hate Sarah Palin. They can’t stand that Mrs. Palin is attractive, physically fit, had 5 kids, grandkids, ran a state government, and has a hunk for a husband. “It’s not fair!”
The whole issue is about women’s self esteem, or NOW’s lack of it.
NOW means that they need to undergo political re-education under the Feminazi model. No dissent. No escapees from the liberal plantation.
A reminder, NOW supported a known perp of workplace sexual harassment, and likely serial rapist.
NOW is not for women or their rights. They are the female arm of the liberal establishment, that is all.
Barack Obama’s mom ran out on him and look how screwed up HE is.
Where does NOW stand on the issue of transexuals in the Miss Universe pagaent? Doesn’t this deprive women of their right to win the competition?
Why are liberals and Democrats engaged in a War on Women????
Let them keep digging this hole for themselves...they will bury themselves in it.
Most Americans have mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters, duaghters, friends...people they know who either stay at home to take care of their children and at significant sacrifice, or who wish they could.
These people are diss’ing them all and it will reflect on them badly.
...as if though Barack Obama and Michelle had the type of down to earth life’s experiences that these people are trying to infer that Ann Romney does not have.
I know this...even though on a couple of occassions she had to work to help financially get us through, for most of our lives my wife, Gail, has been able to stay at home and raise five children. Doing so, meeting all of those needs and demands, doing all the shopping, dealing with the daytime schooling and sports, juggling money and time schedules, cleaning the house, assigning xhores and keeping track of them, running them here and there, instilling good values and ethic into them...even while they fight and bicker with one another...is harder work than most of what I have had to deal with at my own jobs.
I respect unendingly those Mom’s who make that choice...because when they can, IMHO, it helps improve society and the next generation far better than a day care can. The more who want to do this and can, IMHO, the better for us all.
And in so doing, they get a more healthy dose of what real life is all about and how to make it in this day and age with food, budgeting, crisis resolution, education, etc. (the list goes on and on) than most of us professionals do.

Bless those ladies (and gents) because without volunteers, non-profits that do so much in our communities would be in dire straights.
I have worked outside the home all my adult life in the corporate, non-profit and local government world. I supported myself and raised two kids.
My daughter has been a teacher and is now a “stay at home Mom” of three kids under the age of five. If you think THAT is not work, try babysitting them for just one day!
Having served on a local Children and Families Commission for many years, I know that the first five years of life are the most important developmentally. Neglect and abuse during that period of time can actually shrink the physical brain - affecting development for the rest of that child's life. [ http://www.childtrauma.org/ ]
I also know that, in lieu of quality parent time, long term studies have recently shown that children who receive early Head Start and other developmental programs are more likely to graduate from high school and less likely to enter the jail population that peers of the same economic class who have not. [http://www.nhsa.org/files/static_page_files/0610CCDD-1D09-3519-ADAF419AF96C38E0/Head_Start_Return_On_Investment_Brief_LAS-yv.pdf]
Quality time from parents in literacy, numbers, appropriate behavior, sports, arts and other skills will lay a wonderful foundation upon which that child can grow into a healthy teen and adult. I would say that it is definitely a job and a demanding one at that.
The early years are also where children gain what is called “emotional literacy.” I believe that the preponderance of the evidence shows that attention given to the parenting and development of young children in their first five years has tremendous pay back in the success of that child as an adult in society and the decreased likelihood that they will require public assistance, court, mental health or other assistance.
War on motherhood?
- Insulting comments towards motherhood
- Pro-abortion to prevent motherhood
- The Obama economy hurts families, especially single income families
This is a calculated strategy. The White House is behind it, but publicly denying it.
Good. This is pissing people off, and Obama will be associated with it, despite his denials.
Lesbians are the experts to speak on behalf of women and famlies. /s/ NOW donned kneepads for Clinton.
Amen to every bit of what you said. God bless you for your commitment to your family and yto our society and the betterment of it, and Gpod bless your Mom for the same.
I hold my wife in the highest regard because when she waas scik and had to have operations for cancer in her thyroid and was in hospital for periods of time, I took leave and stayed home taking care of our five kids while also being by her side as much as I could.
I know for a fact that she, all these years, has worked far harder than I had it at the office and I thank God for her and the difference it has made to our kids.
I pray we overcome these leftist/liberal/elitists who look down their nose at Moms in general, and particularly those who are trying to raise thier kids in a traditional, moral environment. God bless you each for all you do!
