Obama campaign runs from strategist's insult on Ann Romney
FOX NEWS ^ | 4/12/12

Posted on 04/12/2012 6:47:45 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

The Obama campaign was scrambling Thursday to distance itself from comments made by a top Democratic strategist who accused Ann Romney, wife of presumptive GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, of having “never worked a day in her life.”

“Guess what, (Romney’s) wife has actually never worked a day in her life,” Hilary Rosen said Wednesday evening on CNN.

These people are utterly corrupt.

AT least Ann is not like the “wise latina” type who does not care about the wisdom of the founding Fathers, but the wisdom of the ghetto whore.

Don't let them wriggle away from this one!

Make an ad. Play the video over and over and over.

Don't let the issue die!

Democrats disrespect Moms!

They disrespect all women!

It was Ms. Romney’s choice and that’s her business.

Anyway, it was a better choice than bearing children out of wedlock since the age of 12 and then throwing herself on the public dole!

A little background on Rosen:

On January 22, 2003, Rosen announced that she would resign as head of the RIAA at the end of 2003, in order to spend more time with her partner, Elizabeth Birch, and the couple's twins (a boy and a girl)... She signed with CNN in early 2008. Rosen and Birch separated in 2006.

On November 30, 2004, Rosen became the interim director for the Human Rights Campaign, a leading GLBT lobbyist organization, following the ouster of Cheryl Jacques.... In January 2007, she launched OurChart.com with business partner Ilene Chaiken, creator of the L Word. OurChart.com was a social networking and entertainment site targeted to lesbians and their friends based on the Showtime series, The L Word.

"Obama campaign runs from..."

My @$$!!!!

The Obama campaign orchestrates the attacks by its minions and by design then disassociates itself from them. This phony posture, of Obama taking the high-ground, is a ploy to allow those attacks while still disarming his opponents from similar attacks against him and racist radical wife.

Headline from now til November?

Obama campaign advice for Romney family..
"Mrs. Romney Needs To Tone Down Her Hate"
"That rich b**** never worked a day in her stinking life," say news pundits. "Obama too nice to say it that way but we told him that we will."

Distracting the campaign from OBAMA’s Marxist policies that have destroyed the nations economy, morale and strength. Talk about ANYTHING except what has happened in the last 3 plus years.

dims are running because a lesbo attacks a stay at home mom..they can’t win that argument. Romney should say that he is glad his wife elected not to deviate so that she could have 5 boys.

“Guess what. Romeny’s wife has never actually worked a day in her life.”

What arrogant, pretentious, stupid sentiments on the part of that so-called journalist, who claims impartiality yet wears leftist partisanship on her sleeve for all to see.

It’s absolutely amazing that such stupid and supercilious Progressives should be groomed by the honcho Progressives behind the scenes to undermine and villify an entire population of people who have differing views from the so-called “mainstream” Progressive movement.

Absolutely disgusting, amazing, ignorant, stupid and devoid of any human sentiment; horrid, deplorable and idiotic.

IMHO

As well they should. I don’t think even the special Nike Air Jordan’s will help them run fast enough from this.

I’m a PROUD Stay-At-Home-MOM. Made that decision including all the financial implications that come with it. I worked for quite a few years before having children. It is WORK. Especially in the early years when it would be much easier to have gone to work. There are no-slacker days when you don’t give it 100%, no long lunches or showers or office celebrations, no sick days. My Mom was a SAHM as was my DH’s. I respect working women and wouldn’t want to walk a mile in their shoes. I’d be a raving witch IF I had to awaken at 4 or 5 in the a.m. and fix breakfast, lunches, get myself ready, kids ready, go work a full day and then come home and clean house, cook dinner and do laundry, help with homework and maybe crawl in bed by midnight. I’d probably be divorced. JMO

Ann Romney had five children in eleven years (1970-1981) and raised them well (except for their liberal values) while married to a man who worked long hours. While I despise her husband’s politics and will not vote for him, she has worked very hard - I’d guess that she probably never had a day off for the three decades from 1970 until 1999. Obama and those who swarm around him are disgusting.

First ladies are either cordial and full of comity, or a nightmare.

They stepped in it by juxtaposing Ann with Moochelle. My guess is Moocher's negative internals are frightening, given her speech in 08' that Glenn constantly refers to that got her pulled of the campaign trail, and the fact people are tired of her telling us what to eat.

It also can spur the thought process to then ask what about Moochelle's career, if ya are going to go their...

Can't go their, and shed the light of day of how her law license was permanently suspended and sealed, not to mention her hospital job looked like a quid pro qou....

It is no secret the Mitster is not high on my hit parade, but I can deal with his wife. Why is it sometimes the 1st lady is more likeable than the candidate....

Make that obama's lesbian lackey

Who has twins with "Elizabeth Birch"...no required biological male component mentioned....and is now "separated" from above co-lesbian lover.

Rosen is despicable and has an automatic layer of protection because she's queer.

Unlike Mrs Osama Obama who had that vital $350K/yr “Diversity Coordinator” position at that Chicago hospital after hubby became a Senator.I find it curious,however,that that hospital didn't fill that position after she left.Why,one might even suspect that that job was some kind of payoff or something.

In addition, I’m pretty sure Hilary Rosen would not have made a blind statement about Ann Romney not having “worked a day in her life” until the opp research came back from the DNC’s private eyes.

This shows the Democrats hard at work at opp research on the Romney family.

Sounds like an "All American" kinda gal to me.And somehow I doubt that those twins "belonged" to *both* of them and that a turkey baster was involved somewhere in the process.

My mom only raised two kids (and a slew of pets) and I can remember her exhaustion at the end of the day! I also remember her trying to carve out one hour a day to read a library book - in her room with the door closed. She rarely made it through that hour without one of us barging in and pestering her. Stay-at-home moms work like dogs!

It was always a communist plot to get mothers out of the house in the USA - that’s why Betty Freidan wrote her book. She was a communist, not a feminist. With mothers and fathers completely out of the picture, the government could take over.

Professional moms don't sit around on the couch. Most of
them work harder then most people do at 40 hours a week.
Mom is a 24-hour job for those mothers who love their children.

Just repeat this endlessly. This meme destroys their meme. No point in having any shame this campaign. Just take what the 0bama campaign gives us and shove it down their throats. And in fact, the strategy should be transparent as well. We should make no secret of the idea that all we have to do is to take what the Dems and 0bama give us and we show just how ruinous and elitist it is.
