Skip to comments.Maher: Rosen Meant To Say Ann Romney Never Got Her Ass To Work (video)
Posted on 04/14/2012 8:49:53 AM PDT by i88schwartz
HBO's Bill Maher weighs in on the Hilary Rosen controversy, dismissing it as a "non-consequential," meaningless controversy. Maher also says Ann Romney "has never gotten her ass out of the house to work."
"The language here was, perhaps, inartful, or perhaps America is a society that lives to fight stupid, non-consequential, meaningless controversies and this is the new one," Bill Maher said during the panel portion of his HBO show "Real Time," last night.
"But what she meant to say, I think, was that Ann Romney has never gotten her ass out of the house to work. No one is denying that being a mother is a tough job, I remember that I was a handful. Okay, but there is a big difference in being a mother, and that tough job, and getting your ass out of the door at 7am when its cold, having to deal with the boss, being in a workplace, and even if you're unhappy you cant show it for 8 hours, that is a different kind of tough thing," Maher observed last night.

What a jerk!!
Getting out the door at 7:00 AM to drive to work for a grouchy boss?
AWWWWWW, poor BABY!
How about getting up at 5:00 AM to make sure that kids and husband have a meal before going out the door at 7:00 AM?
How about staying up all night with a sick kid?
How about dealing with the anger and confusion of a hormonaly rampant 15-year-old?
I could go on and on and on and on.
While we’re at it, when was the last time Bill Maher had to get his sorry blob of a carcas out the door at 7:00 AM to drive through traffic and face a grouchy boss, if ever?
...thus disproving that it was “non-consequential” and furthering the commonly hend perception that the left got its collective (pun intended) azzes handed to them over it.
Keep talking Bill!
Thank God for Bill Maher. He's keeping the insult at all women, from the Obama Team, alive.
Another gift that keeps on giving...
Yep, they are digging a bigger hole.
They can’t help themselves.
How about staying up for almost 48 hours straight with multiple children because they're yaking all over the place from the stomach flu and having to run to the store while it's cold outside all the while being unhappy and dog-ass tired yet not being able to show it because you know it's not their fault.
Take a pill, Bill.
I'd like to see you push out a 7 pound lump of humanity out YOUR wazoo!
The way the lefties run these days, you never can tell. He might have already done that and then decided to switch sides.
Yup, he seems to be that gift that keeps giving.
What this man doesn’t know about women, wives, mothers and children could fill a book.
Ann: I’m glad you didn’t have to go to work on a cold day at 7am. I did for 25 years and it stunk! Bravo for you. And that’s no sarcasm alert.
I take heart in all this. Ann Romney must scare the sh*t out of Obama for some reason.
Hence the orders to the media whores (like Maher) take her out.
Maher is such a hateful little creature.
“Meaningless,” as in page 1 of the WSJ.
“Bill Maher weighs in on the Hilary Rosen controversy, dismissing it as a “non-consequential,”
This is, of course, an admission that it will have consequences.
YEAH. It is different, Mahr.. . you can’t quit, there is no sick leave if you’re under the weather, there is no lunch break or coffee break, dumb people act like you don’t work and coyly look down upon you. I guess it is more similar to running your own company than it is to being an employee.
And, Mahr, you have no idea what you are even talking about because mothers at home are doing more than running a household, they are keeping the community together. They are there for the neighborhood kids whose mothers are at work to provide after school refuge. They run PTAs and volunteer in school classrooms, providing some much needed oversight. They are the engine of things such as scouts and community symphonies and fund drives for different causes and needs.
But the real point is that there is nobody who really KNOWS what it is like to be and do everything. Being a farmer is not like being a stock broker any more than being a working woman is not like being a stay at home mom. Being a secretary is not like being a television journalist with a big pay check. Being a coal miner is not at all like being a Senator. SO WHAT? People have views all the time on lifestyles that are totally foreign to them....WHICH is why government needs to be SMALL...because people should not make all sorts of rules and laws to govern lives of others when they don’t understand what that life entails. To the extent that being a stay at home mom means you should not inform or opine.....well that really makes a solid case for small government.
Billy boy would be crying tears if he had to get his a$$ up and go do a job for 8 measly hours that involved physical labour
True to form, Maher never misses an opportunity to miss an opportunity to show he has any class.
Meaning that the DNC must feel that the message resonates with a lot of the mean girls in their base. The types that hate Sarah Palin, who had all those kids and at age fifty looks better than they did at age 25 and is a national celebrity on top of it all.
How many of us would trade our chosen profession for staying home and raising kids?
I think we all know who has the tougher job.
If she had put on an extra 30 to 50 lbs on that skeletor frame of hers, she might not be going through menopause right now.
Bill lizardman Mayor. I don’t believe I have ever seen a fly near you for very long. Shut the F up. Nobody cares about your opinion on anything. You and lardbutt Michael better get down on your knees again and pray for Obama’s re-election. cause the socialist train has de-railed and it’s heading for the cliff.
Still hoping for the opportunity to cold-cock this POS before I die!
this asshole will get his
He qualifies for the “c”... word and that’s just to start.
OMG. The Left is totally self-destructing over this enormous gaffe. Maher makes it even worse with this degenerate barb.
I’m sure Maher has trouble getting his *ss to work to when he’s taking it for Obama.
As a confirmed bachelor, Maher’s idea of the proper place for women is on his lap. Women for him are f-friends.
Ann Coulter, how in the world did you get tangled up with this dud?
Ha, ha, I’ll bet Maher has never had a hard job in his worthless life. We’ll make him take care of some babies for a year and see how he does. He’ll be crying for his mama after three days.
Huh....suppose he actually believes what he does is work?
Nasty comments and putdowns is all I’ve ever heard out of this tortured soul.
Never happy. Even his “smile” comes off as a sneer.
Have kids out of Wedlock with different men.
Sit around your Section 8 provided Apartment waiting for your Welfare Check and EBT Card to show up.
Vote for Obama, the only Man that will take care of you.
But regardless of whether one supports Romney or not; the attack on his wife is an attack on the very concept of the Feminine woman--the woman Blessed with the attributes that all decent men used to revere in women. It shows how corrupt the Left has become in its perceptions of how a healthy society functions.
For a discussion of the real issue here, from an unapologetic Conservative social viewpoint: The Feminist Delusion.
Oh, by the way, did I call Mahrer an idiot? I do not know the man's IQ, but even if it is in the high 90s, he still functions analytically as an idiot.
Will miss Coulter please tell her BFF to shut his piehole. And wh
ile she is at it give us examples of his comedic genius.
Raising kids is 10x more difficult than what any bloated, overpaid government politician does.
Who these people kidding?
It is a sad thing to think that Maher actually had a mother—who bore him—cleaned him & changed his diapers—fed him- clothed him- educated him- bought him his school books & supplies & then sees him totally dismiss the actions of a ‘stay at home mother’.
Happy Mother’s Day a bit early, Mrs Maher. You should have availed yourself of other means of keeping this POS out of the American limelight, IMO.
My wife would agree with every word you said. She quit her job when our only child was about six months old, even though she made more money than I did at the time. That was the best decision we ever made, having her home and taking care of our daughter.
