I’m thinking there are a hell of a lot of welfare moms out there that stay at home. I’m sure they’ll view with interest what Democrat politicians think of them.

His wife...

Susannah Lindberg-Randolph is the Florida Program Coordinator for Clean Water Action, where she supervises environmental and democracy issues for the organization as well as working with Clean Water Action’s Political Action Committee to get pro-environment candidates elected to local, state, and federal offices She recently founded a next-generation Florida environmental leadership coalition called “Green Behind the Ears,” which she hopes will strengthen the effectiveness and clout of the Florida environmental community. Ms. Lindberg-Randolph has been a community organizer and public interest advocate since 1992. During her four years at Florida State University, Ms. Lindberg-Randolph chaired the statewide board of directors for Florida PIRG. After graduation, Susannah worked as a State PIRG campaign organizer and Fund canvass director, where she taught young people how to be involved in their democracy. While with the PIRGs, Susannah worked on campaign finance reform and clean air campaigns, as well as the National Forests Roadless Rule, and preservation of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. She ran door-to-door, voter outreach campaigns in Tallahassee, Miami, St. Louis, MO, and Hyannis, MA. During the summer of 2000, Susannah directed the largest petition office in the country for the Roadless Forest Campaign where she and her staff gathered over 65,000 signatures in Miami and South Florida. Early that next year, President Clinton enacted the Roadless Rule to protect our national forests. In 2001, she became the Executive Director of the Wildlife Advocacy Project, which focused on achieving protections for the West Indian Manatee in coastal areas throughout Florida.

Ann Romney can take care of herself. She has shown that. Let’s stop letting the Left make decisions for us and come together and make our own. We need to quit falling into their traps. Quit letting them divide us. Start making our own with the first being we want the vote counting back here.

The more they harp on this-the left does not focus on Romney’s record. I guess they think this avenue will work for them to say Ann is out of touch to most moms. They should go after Mitt’s record since the conservative pundits are letting him have a pass now.

I don’t know if anyone’s mentioned this yet, but Randolph was a staffer for nutter extraordinaire Alan Grayson and managed his failed 2010 re-election campaign.

So, basically, I’m saying nothing this clown is really that surprising to me.

Democrats are not stupid, democratic voters are.

This is about inoculating michelle obama for the general election. All the vacations, all the expenses and improprieties will not be in play during the general election. They are going to build this up into some major issue and then will come the "gentlemens agreement" to leave the wives out of it.

obama said as much thursday in his missouri television interview. "Families and spouses are off limits"

The dems know what they are doing.

We need to quit making a big deal out of this.

It’s a plain and simple case of jealousy which ignites wrath against those who have what you secretly desire. It’s called coveting, it poisons the soul of the one who covets.

Democrats would attack Mother Theresa if she were alive and favored a Republican. They’re vicious people with no conscience.

She’s really attacking Ann (and Mitt) for being rich. It was a stay on message class warfare comment, but because of Ann’s situation (5 kids, MS, cancer survivor) and the general good feeling towards motherhood, it backfired.

Today Obama said that we should stop attending to this distracting furor over motherhood, leave families alone, and get back to the big issues, like the Buffet tax. Hilary overdid it, but her attack was part of a consistent theme—”they (Romneys, GOP in general) have more money than you. Let’s change that.”

There will always be more not-rich people than rich people. That’s why class warfare is often a successful tactic. Hilary Rosen was not off the reservation—she just chose her target poorly. But, anyone with a perceived excess of wealth was her target. She was on message, but delivered it poorly.
