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.
appears to have some real issues with women
A real scumbag.
A real scumbag.
Prior to his election he worked as an attorney for Clean Water Action, a national environmental organization dedicated to preserving water quality and the environment.
Oh I see
Same old crap with a twist to the tactics
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 Actions 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.

"When a campaign chooses to throw someone under the bus, you have no control of message. Campaign 101. Learn the basics."
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.
Uh, they’re falling into their own traps...I happen to enjoy watching it.
I file this story as who the freak cares about a DINO attacking a RINO.
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.
“Im sure theyll view with interest what Democrat politicians think of them”
I’m sure they’d let you call them devil nazi skank whores, so long as the checks keep coming.
What, praytell, are “democracy issues”? Motorvoting barflies and the homeless to the nearest polling place?
LOL, I hear ya...
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.
Is it ok to defend Mitts wife on FR?
It’s really a Democrat war on Mothers!
Carville to Randoff:
READ YOUR GODDAM EMAIL IN THE MORNING BEFORE YOU SPOUTING OFF ABOUT SOMETHING.
Moms - Stay home and raise your children, otherwise you may be raising Democrats.
Keep it up, Democrats.
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.
