Obama and DNC advisor attacks Ann Romney (She never worked a day in her life)
ABC via Drudge ^

Posted on 04/12/2012 4:48:54 AM PDT by submarinerswife

Ann’s first tweet came just moments after Democratic strategist and DNC adviser Hilary Rosen lobbed an insult at Ann Romney, suggesting that the 64-year-old mother of five and grandmother of 16 had never held a job.

“Guess what, his wife has actually never worked a day in her life,” said Rosen, who was being interviewed by CNN’s Anderson Cooper about the “war on women Following the interview, Rosen herself tweeted, “I’ve nothing against @AnnRomney. I just don’t want Mitt using her as an expert on women struggling $ to support their family. She isn’t.”

Rosen kept tweeting, not appearing to back off of her comments.

“@AnnDRomney Please know, I admire you. But your husband shouldn’t say you are his expert on women and the economy,” said Rosen.

Then Rosen offered a welcome message to Ann, tweeting, “oh and @AnnDRomney welcome to Twitter. You will find it a very exhilarating and often unforgiving place!”

I guess I’m old enough to remember a time when most of my friends moms, including mine, were stay at home moms who ran the household and raised us kids while dad worked.

Are they really attacking the concept of single worker families now?

Yes.... and here comes the punchline...

Not welfare mothers!

Have they ever worked? Better be careful there, Odumbo.

Dear Hilary Rosen, Thank you for doing something I only thought Moderate Republicans are capable of doing- saying something stupid just when you were about to win an election.

Now Ann Romney has gone from the rich queen who lives in mansions, to a sympathetic stay-at-home mother who cares more about her kids than trying to head up the corporate ladder until your uterus dries out.

Funny thing is unions scream about a time when a single hard working American could own a home and raise a family on his salary alone, and how bad things have sunk since then.

Guess when the hard working dad is in management then it’s not the same...

Although I hate “Mittens,” I highly respect his wife for she holds one of the most important positions in this country...the housewife.

We find ourselves in the current moral position of today simply by the fact that housewife’s are a rare commodity today and the current generation has left child rearing to the government or schools (indoctrination centers) and daycare facilities.

Long gone are the days of Ozzie and Harriet and the days of raising children to be men or women with work ethic and morals.

With the passing of the housewife, came the passing of our moral society.

The Democrats’ War on Women

Posted By Arnold Ahlert On April 12, 2012 @ 12:50 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage

The so-called Republican “war on women” currently being trumpeted by Democrats (with ample help from an ever-accommodating media) has exposed the absurd depths of the leftist entitlement mentality and its disdain for the concept of religious freedom. It was highlighted by the testimony of Sandra Fluke, who contended that her birth control should be underwritten by others regardless of their religious convictions. Yet if war is defined as something that does genuine damage to the interests of women, it is Democrats, via the sexual revolution and its all-out attack on traditional values, who have waged a war against women for decades. What has the Democratic war on women brought us?

First and foremost, it has brought us the wholesale destruction of the nuclear family, and the resultant poverty and crime that attends it. Currently 41 percent of children are born to single mothers, most of whom are low-income women in their early and mid-20s. In the black American community, that percentage soars to a staggering 72 percent. Male child abandonment is now a rampant aspect of our society. These trends are directly connected to Democrats’ and president Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society,” and the critical changes they made to the Aid to Families with Dependent Children Program (AFDC). A program once reserved for funding once-married women who had lost the primary male supporter of the family was expanded to include any household where there was no male family head present.

In 1965, Daniel Patrick Moynihan predicted where such a change would lead–when the out-of-wedlock birthrate was 24 percent among black Americans and (4 percent for white Americans). He was excoriated by liberals saying that a “lack of equal education and opportunity” were the true root of the problem. 47 years and triple the number of out-of-wedlock births later, liberals are still using the same rationale to defend their position....

My ire is drawn. SAHMs and working Moms often have a vicious dislike for each other’s life choices.
SAHM= lazy, husband leaching know-nothing
Working Mom= leaves kids for job, children raised by strangers. Spends little to no time with her children.

Hillary Rosen is a vile feminazi who just slandered and disrespected me and millions of SAHMs.

I know what people think of SAHMs, even if they are taking care of their kids. It is the ultimate slap in the face from a society that is collapsing and imploding right before our eyes. SAHMs dare think that supervising our kids is important. Making meals, reading, and spending time with our children is considered “lazy.”

I love my kids, and value them and their well-being. I want them to be moral and intelligent. I do not want them to grow up latch key and ignorant, raised by HBO and the internet.

If women want to work, that is their choice. I envy women who work and have their mother or trusted family to watch their kids while they earn their check. If I could do that, I would work.

CDC: Nearly 1 in 4 babies born to unwed cohabitors

Apr 12, 12:12 AM (ET)

By MIKE STOBBE

ATLANTA (AP) - Health officials say nearly 1 in 4 babies are born to unmarried couples who are living together, a significant jump from a decade ago.

The government previously said more than 40 percent of births are to unwed mothers. But a report released Thursday offers new detail showing most unwed births occur in cohabiting couples.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study was based on face-to-face interviews with more than 22,000 men and women during 2006 through 2010.

About 23 percent of the reported births were to unmarried heterosexual couples who were living together when the child was born. That was up from 14 percent when a similar study was done in 2002. The CDC did not speculate on reasons for the increase.

I am not able to type what I would REALLY like to state concerning this particular person, for several reasons.

Firstly, I suppose that raising FIVE children doesn’t “count” as “working”.

SECONDLY, I understand that she has multiple sclerosis. My mother, who ALSO did not work after I was born, also did not work. RULE ONE for MS patients then, and now, is SUBJECT YOURSELF TO ZERO AMOUNTS OF STRESS, because stress sets off episodes, from which you never really recover 100%. So, recovering to 98% a few dozen times over a span of years leaves you in a wheelchair, blind, or worse.

Because she loves her husband, and, I suppose, her COUNTRY, she is apparent willing to take the risk of public appearances, campaigning, and eventually in being the First Lady.

This coming from a family who had a position that was created at a Chicago hospital that was for $300,000 something a year, and is no longer there. Michele O just had to sit on her fat ass and collect checks. Last I checked she’s been partying it up for the last three years on our dime while we’ve been getting shafted financially by her husband.

Many women who are stay at home Moms are very busy with school, church, and community charitable activities.

Just because a woman is not “gainfully” employed doesn’t mean she isn’t tirelessly and unselfishly working to make life better for her own family, her faith family, and her community.

What planet do these elitist Democrat women come from? They claim Ann Romney is out of touch with women’s issues, but they demonstrate that they are the ones who have no clue.

What is obvious is Obama and his ilk hate women. Sarah Palin was derided because she did not stay home with her 5 children. Ann Romney is now marginalized because she did stay home with her 5 children. Obama will make this election about Ann and women, just like he made the last one about Sarah. He is such a pussy boy, he can’t run against the men. Look at what his policies have done for women. Nothing!! Higher unemployment, more on welfare, more childless. I believe he hated his mother and had no respect for his grandmother. Women are only tools and props to him. Get them arguing and distracted from the issues and he gets a pass.

You bet they are. But that’s the part about the left that we need to exploit and manipulate on the elections. I don’t like Obama, but hey, whatever can provoke Obama and his campaign staff off the hinges? Do it? Get Obama and his campaign staff to lose their cool, and we just accomplished the classic principle of Sun Tzu.

Don’t forget the fact that even McCain had a smaller wages gap between his female and male campaign staffers. Again, accusing the other person of what you are doing is the classic leftist meme.

It’s funny but recently sometimes people wonder why you have an issue with boys who objectify women, sometimes I wonder if that boy or young man had a mom who demanded he respect her.

I agree, that there are things about Obama that worry me. He doesn’t mention his grandmother much. Considering the fact that his grandmother had a great deal of part in his upbringing, that worries me, in addition to the heritage of his mother, sure, it’s mixed, but why feel bad about it. Two of the best friends I knew growing up had a mixed race heritage, but weren’t ashamed of the heritage of both their parents. But the part that worries me about Obama is the way he views his mother, I am a man, alright, but my mother demonstrated, by being my mother full-time while I was young, that a woman is a human being that deserves respect. Trust me, she was very hard on that point, but looking back, I thank her for it, because honestly, I honestly feel that I could respect some woman and be a great husband, because I could view my wife with plenty of respect. That’s what I think is behind the de-masculinizing of so many men in society today, they don’t have a mom like mine who demanded respect and had a piece of her mind to give day in and day out.

Well, the Napster shutdown means close to zip for the nerd crowd, the same is true with the shutdown of the file-sharing sites. For every shutdown the government does of an illegal filesharing site, there are ten to one hundred times as many file-sharing sites or new ways that people figure out how to illegally download files digitally. No one has touched the tip of the iceberg on torrentson the net, although in my house I have made it so that the actual receiving signals for the internet access cannot receive torrents, there’s plenty of households that aren’t as strict as mine.

The best thing that can be done to combat internet piracy is getting kids to actually spend time doing some chores and real work, a lesson in earning things, but you can probably see where I am going with this, right? P-A-R-E-N-T-I-N-G
