MSNBC Guest Calls Ann Romney 'Insufferable', Her Mother's Day Op-Ed 'Creepy'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 05/13/2012 7:41:04 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

Snark on, Michelle! On the MSNBC show "Up With Chris Hayes" this morning, feminist author Michelle Goldberg attacked Ann Romney as "insufferable" and derided a phrase in Ann's op-ed on the subject of motherhood as "creepy."

Goldberg's "insufferable" shot drew approving laughter from the all-feminist panel. And surely the attacks on the Romneys for their traditional family values will play well with a certain segment of the electorate. The problem for President Obama: that segment is one that is already almost entirely in his camp. But these sort of mean-spirited attacks are likely to alienate the very voters in the middle that PBO needs to persuade.

Every day, it’s getting harder for the MSM to cover up the true nature of the Left.

If I were to use the word “creepy” in describing a person, it would better fit the two women I saw in that video than Ann Romney. As an example, toward the end, she used the word “authoritarian”. If anything, these women are themselves poster women for authoritarian thinking. Either you agree with them, or they’ll publicly destroy you.

These people are sick...just like Obama is sick.

And it’s on display for the whole world to see.

Most Americans will and are rejecting these folks, and I pray it leads to a landslide defeat of Obama in November, one of Regeanesque proportions.

Disgusted that Mitt will be our candidate, but your enemies can serve to define you upward.

Like a freakin' clock, the liberals advertise what they are about to do, by accusing the Republicans or the Conservatives of the offense they are about to commit.

So, when the liberals and Demoncraps started on about the Republican "war on women", I knew this was coming -- that they were about to declare war on our women.

For the full effect, you really need a screen-shot of Goldberg showing that “Vagina Monolgoues” harpy sitting to her right.

I was half-awake as I ran through that video, until those two showed up together on the screen, a sight that was scary enough to shock me into full consciousness.

Libs simply cannot stand that Republicans/Conservatives raise responsible, independent children. EAT YOUR HEARTS OUT, LIBS! And then go give your kid in the basement another cookie.

Obama and Romney are working to turn this into a Seinfeld election.

A show about nothing.

Ann Romney’s editorial is beautiful. I have all ten of my children home today, and it’s very loud, and I’ve already done three loads of laundry, but I’m happy this is the life God dropped on me.

What is the matter with all these self-hating Jewish women???

Attacking motherhood on Mother’s Day is a new low and certainly reflects poorly on Leftists, including Obama.

Liberals are evil, what did you expect from them?

Most Americans will and are rejecting these folks

Most folks are too self absorbed to give a damn. The mere fact that Obama can still get people to vote for him shows how much this country has fallen. You can expect more of this kind of crap coming from the liberals and even worse.

I'm not a fan of Romney but I don't envy him or what his family is about to face. If he wins, he's going to have one hell of a mess to clean up, ( if he is interested in doing so....) but also he's going to face the most vicious attacks because liberals will be angry that their marxist president was defeated. It won't matter how much Romney tries to extend a hand of friendship to the dems because they will be out for blood.

God help this country...

For decades the rad-fems publicly maintained that they respected a woman’s right to stay home and raise kids if it was her decision. But secretly or in subtle ways they made it clear that they detested stay-at-home moms...especially the religious ones. Because the rad-fems were in a culture war with the dreaded “patriarchy”, and a woman forgoing getting a “wonderful” job working in a factory or restaurant to raise her children was a traitor to her sex. They’ll never change, because deep down they’re nasty, vicious, unhappy people who hate everybody.

You are certainly correct on whaty Romney and his family are going to face...but they know this and are placing their faith in the American people and in God...they simply have to given the horrible gauntlet they are going to face.

As to you comment:

Most folks are too self absorbed to give a damn

I know many are...too many...but not all by a far shot, not nearly. Otherwise, we cannot explain the 2010 elections. And I believe another 2010 is coming here in 2012.

The dems/libs/progressives/marxists are blind to it...but it exists and I hope and pray to God in Heaven that we are storng enough and work hard enough to bring it forward just like in the 2010 elections.

Despite his past, Endorsements and Support for Romney continue to grow

He's going to need every bit of it and more.

What else would one expect a panel of leftist lesbians to think. Are there any normal people on the left? What’s creepy is Michelle Obama who is married to someone that supports gay marriage. Michelle the Mooch that lives the lavish lifestyle of a queen on our dime—now that’s creepy.

They define the word “bullies.”

That's the left's methodology. It has to be because they can't win on the issues, so they have to bull their way through a discussion. And they have to control the process, thereby having to control the person.

These two bullies are representative of the whole. And it's not a nice picture to look at; physically or mentally.

And surely the attacks on the Romneys for their traditional family values

Like avoiding military service en massse for the last 150 years, fleeing to Mexico to practice polygamy, and occupying top leadership positions in the Mormon cult?

Real traditional family values, these Romneys have.

Wait Mitt Romney is 150 years old? And he lived in Mexico with his multiple wives?

Good luck with that one! Maybe, just maybe step away from the bong once in a while...
