Hilary Rosen: 'Spare Me The Faux Anger' On Ann Romney 'Never Worked A Day In Her Life' Remark
ibtimes.com ^ | April 12, 2012 | Howard Koplowitz

Posted on 04/12/2012 10:14:22 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen wants Republicans to spare her the "faux anger" as backlash against her continues to build for saying Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's wife, Ann Romney, "never worked a day in her life."

The remarks were seen as an attack on stay-at-home mothers, being that Ann Romney cared for her five children -- Tagg, Matt, Josh, Ben and Craig -- as a housewife.

"Guess what, [Romney's] wife has actually never worked a day in her life," Rosen told CNN, referring to Ann Romney.

Ann Romney used her first tweet to suggest raising five children amounted to a job.

"I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work," she tweeted.

Politicos on both sides of the aisle condemned Hilary Rosen's remarks, including top advisers to President Barack Obama.

Thank you for keeping this story alive Hilary!

From a GOP standpoint this falls into the "Hilary, please don't throw me in that brier patch" category.

If Ann Romney had just taken a $320K Chicago-Style, make-work, no-show job from a political crony, it would be all good, right?

THESE PEOPLE ARE HYPOCRITES, they know they are hypocrites, but they think the sheeple are stoopid.

Great more of the attack the stay at home mom ploy. This self serving wench probably feels bad because she abandoned her kids to go to work. To make her self better she attacks women who feel it is better to stay at home with their kids.

Being as how a large percentage of the lost jobs were women’s jobs, maybe she should spare us the faux anti-mother rant.

“Republican women will not fall for your crap.”

Republican women is NOT who this is aimed at.
It’s aimed at DEMOCRAT women, and independents, to make the angry, and get them to the polls in November.

These people aren’t lying to you, they are lying to thier own base, and the Magic Sqwauking Box in the living room will be reinforcing the message, nightly.

Don’t forget about the stay at home dads. There are a lot of Mr. Moms out there who lost thier jobs and are unable to find work outside the home thanks to 0bams’s failed economic record.

If Rosen hitched her wagon to a successful man, then she could be a stay at home mom. That is if she even has her children.

In fact, if they were both successful, either of them could stay home and play at being the children's mom.

It amazes me that these females, that have total disdain for men, would even have a say about how the real relationships of married heterosexual people are.

According to what I just heard, the Romney’s had their first three sons while they were both in college and had to pay a sitter while Ann attended classes.
Romney did not start out rich, he has worked for everything he has.

By my definition, “Democrat Strategist” isn’t a working job. To have a “job” generally requires that you are building something - not tearing it down (demolition experts excepted, of course).

I, too, stayed home and raised my children. I thank God every day that I was privileged to do it.

I had a phone call from an ex-schoolmate who asked if I was working? I said Yes. She asked what I was doing. I replied, “Grocery shopping, cooking, scrubbing floors, laundry, ironing, sewing to save money, recovering the couch to save money, making drapes, wallpapering, cleaning, taking the kids to the doctor and dentist, picking up prescriptions, overseeing what they watched on TV, etc. etc.”

She then said, “Oh, I mean a REAL job.”

Hillary Rosen’s own career has consisted of nothing more worthwhile than leading the RIAA in destroying technological innovation and lobbying to get bad laws passed. The nation would be far better off if she’d never decided to work outside the home.

Oh yeah that stuff just is not up to real job status.*eyeroll* I get it a lot since I stay at home.My health issue like Anne’s isn’t at first glance noticeable.I’ve been asked to my face why I am so lazy and then they look at my husband and tell him that he should make me go to work.I mean really I thought we were equals and that no man could tell me anything?I get so fed up with those sort of women.My husband tells them to mind their own business that we are happy with our lives the way it is and perhaps if they were happy with their lives they wouldn’t be so quick to busy body into other’s lives? LOL

Many Indpendent and Democrat women bristle at Hilary Rosen’s statement, especially the ones who are older and actually stayed at home with their children. My mother did not work “outside” the home but she sure as hell worked inside the home. She was a nurse, cook, teacher, maid, and bodyguard to four children and a husband. Mom did it all without complaining. The younger Independent and Democrat crowd are the ones who swallowed the feminist clap trap that was fed to them over the past 40 years. You know that bs that feminism is all about “choices”. What they didn’t tell you is that when a woman chose to be a homemaker and raise her family she would be marginalized somewhere down the road by Hilary Rosen and her ilk.

Well, it all doesn’t matter right? Since her husband is akin to the anti-Christ, having founded gay marriage, heck, the guy even started homosexuality in the first place! I hear he also does things to dogs with a fork! OMG! Is there no end to the man’s evil?!

With all that apparently his wife would be fair game, right? No, wait. She isn’t.

See how hard it is when you’re a wingnut? Nothing makes any sense.

It use to be an honor and privilege to be able to be a stay at home MOM...

I worked while raising my two kids, because I had to..after they were off to school, I enjoyed being in the working world and to be able to help carry the work load..

RETIRED now and am bored sh!tless...lol

has the MSM forgotten that Ann Romney also has a serious illness?? leave it to jerk in the white house to insult Americans...

This long summer of hate has started already.

Liberals don't just hate in the summer, it's year round with them. They hate everything - especially Christians and conservatives. Liberals are repulsive and faux elitists who always think they are right - thus, their insanity.

Their women are usually hairy, she men, who think they have the same anatomy as males. They don't stay home because they hate kids, hate housework, hate gardening, and hate...The only place a leftist draft horse woman will grocery shop is in Whole Foods or such and pay $10 for a banana. They lack common sense, have no nurturing qualities and are physically, and mentally repugnant. Hilary is fits the description. The leftists are really quite nauseating.

They hate the values this nation was built on and want to destroy every last bit of it becaushttp://www.freerepublic.com/perl/post?id=2871221%2C1e they are demonically possessed.

Yes, you are right. But in the larger picture, Obama’s presidency has been a three year reign of hate, envy, division, and destruction. He actually makes Jimmy Carter look good by comparison.

I do not particularly like Romney. But this election must be about turning Obama out of office. The country cannot endure another term of this race-baiting, envy-stoking, arrogant, narcissistic Marxist-wannabe. Oh, and lest I forget, Chicago machine crook.
