Are you kidding me? 10 hours a day politicking for Cain? How do you mother when you're constantly cruising the site? I can't sit here for more than a couple hours at a time, let alone 10. You've got to be cashing a check from the man--I won't buy that you sit in front of the computer and mommy at the same time for 10 hours a day.

Simple to understand: She is working for her children's future, with about the same amount of time invested as a full-time employed mother, and with the benefit of being able to be home with them. That's a dedicated mom.

I'm assuming you have no understanding of the volunteer force behind Herman Cain's campaign, wherein hundreds, if not thousands, of supporters are putting in 12 to 16 hour+ days.....NO paycheck. They loyally and consistently dedicate their time and talents to Mr. Cain, believing him to be a true patriot with the best interest of America at heart.

(Not really something worth a personal attack, is it?)

Thanks, Tara :-)

There are several FReepers who do a lot more than me - one runs a nationwide phone bank for Cain, and another who started up the Draft Cain (now Elect Cain) group which is grassroots nationwide.

I believe Cain only had around 30 something paid staff for most of the year (although I know he has added more in the past few weeks), and between 100K-200K volunteers.

My kids are older (preteen and teen) so it’s not like I’m toting around little ones, but I AM working for their future. My oldest turns 18 one week before 2012 elections :-)

No, I simply don’t believe that a mom can be actively mothering while sitting on a computer 10 hours a day. That’s not a “personal attack” on a Cain volunteer, it’s an opinion regarding what activities are required to raise a child. Sure, you can tell a kid to do things and hold a kid and get up occasionally to do other things, but if you are literally sitting in front of a computer 10 hours a day, you will not be doing the other things that parenting demands. Volunteers are dedicated people, but I can’t believe that most parents could volunteer to that level and do both things well.

And I just don’t buy that someone really sits 10 hours a day without any other compensation, because too many ‘volunteers’ here are obviously shilling for their candidates full time, posting every 30 minutes a new puff piece for Perry or whoever. It’s unsubtle astroturfing. That isn’t volunteer level work.
