Skip to comments.Obama - Making more stay at home parents

.has actually never worked a day in her life. Shes never really dealt with the kinds of economic issues that a majority of women in this country are facing. Hilary Rosen, democratic operative, referring to Ann Romney
Hilary Rosens indictment of Ann Romney was quickly and rightfully so disavowed by the left, and condemned by the right. However, when we look past the outrage and at Rosens words, she is quite correct: A quick scan of her and Mitts Wikipedia biographies show that they were both born to affluent households. (I should add, much like most of the presidential candidates of recent decades.)
So, what of it? Far from revealing any hitherto unknown fact about the Romneys, Rosen has done us the favor of revealing a bit about herself and her impression of the electorate. Rosen and her ilk expect no, require us to look at the economically privileged with contempt and jealousy. We are to believe that anything that they have achieved beyond the middle-class status quo is ill-gotten and the result of somehow leeching off the great unwashed. That many of us aspire to the ability to have one parent at home is anathema to the left, whose entire agenda is based upon the idea that Americans cant rise above without intervention from the state.

Best to have BOTH parents at home.
I thought Obama was referring to himself when he was referring to Ann Romney being a stay at home mom.
With the Unemployment rate the way it is.....
YES, he is making more stay at home parents...
Smart Republican state legislatures and governors can help out by make it easier to have a parent home school their kids while they are unemployed.
Most welfare Mothers never worked a day in their life.
Hillary and Moochelle both had fake jobs while the State paid for nannies to raise their children. At least the Romneys paid for everything with their own money.
Yep, I don’t think I heard the Left talking about that.
The big secret that people don’t want to admit to is that when women entered the workforce in large numbers, it pushed wages down. Good old supply and demand. When the supply of labor went up and up, the price for that labor went down.
That’s one reason that today many folks have to have 2 incomes to survive. That is part of the price we pay for choice. I’m NOT suggesting that we go back to the 1920s, but I find it supremely ironic that the feminist wanted change, got it, and now deride women that don’t make the same choices that they have made. As if their choices never have a down side.
