  • Women Growing up to Be 'Girls'

    Rosen vs. Romney is not exactly high noon at the Powder Puff Arena. But it provides an insight or two in the gender games at the center of the culture: Trendy lesbian working mom, a public relations strategist raising adopted children, attacks traditional super mom for staying home to raise five sons. This is not exactly a rumble in the jungle or the thrilla in Manila, but the way it's hyped, you might think it's a fight that would frighten Muhammad Ali, a thriller if not for the ages at least for this news cycle. Rosen vs. Romney is supposed...

    I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfill my profession… Teresa Heinz-Kerry did it to Laura Bush in 2004: Q: You’d be different from Laura Bush? A: Well, you know, I don’t know Laura Bush. But she seems to be calm, and she has a sparkle in her eye, which is good. But I don’t know that she’s ever had a real job — I mean, since she’s been grown up. And now, Anita Dunn colleague and Huffington Post Beltway insider Hilary Rosen has done it...

    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...

    Hilary Rosen had an unusually hardened tone to her voice as she castigated Ann Romney on Anderson Cooper's CNN program the other night. What had this outspoken gay lady had against motherhood? She and her 3 year lesbian partner (at the time, as they are now split) have been outspoken for LGBTQ* rights, but also adopted twin girls, so you would think Ms. Rosen would have a handle on the sacrifice required to perform maternal duties. Yet, when I think of maternal instincts, neither she nor her former significant other seem to have that feminine, motherly quality required to raise...

    In the past few days, the Left has made much of the “war on women” meme being bandied about online. They’ve accused the Right of “inventing” it as a way to tar the Left, decrying any use of the phrase as right-wing smears. (Oh, except poor Joe Biden, who apparently didn’t get the memo.) The latest salvo in this non-existant war on women came after Hilary Rosen commented about candidate Mitt Romney’s wife Ann that she had never worked a day in her life… For a women who raised a family of five boys, this would come as something of...

    What Republicans and Democrats alike don't understand is that the "mommy wars" are largely a thing of the past A fierce Twitter firestorm erupted this week after Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen pointedly questioned Ann Romney’s fitness to serve as her husband’s ambassador on women’s economic issues. Noting to CNN’s Anderson Cooper that Romney — a daughter of privilege who became wealthier still while married to Mitt — had “never worked a day in her life,” Rosen voiced the suggestion that she was, perhaps, less than ideally suited for relaying the financial worries and stresses of most American women to her...

    Bias: While her party supports taxpayer-funded contraceptives for female law students, a top Democrat disses a stay-at-home mother of five who has "never worked a day in her life." She's the probable GOP nominee's wife. The Democrats think Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown law student who wants unwilling taxpayers and religious groups to provide her with $3,000 worth of contraceptives, is worthy of support and praise. Meanwhile, Ann Romney, a mother of five, is condemned because she "has actually never worked a day in her life," as Democrat strategist Hilary Rosen put it. We would suggest it is the Democrats who...

    Amid a massive backlash from the American public and a stampeding retreat from her supporters, Democratic National Committee advisor Hilary Rosen backtracked from her words about Ann Romney last night on CNN, stating a few moments ago, “As a pundit, I know my words on CNN last night were poorly chosen … I apologize to Ann Romney.” The report of that statement comes from Jim Acosta at CNN. The question is whether the Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee will apologize to Romney, and whether they will fire Rosen over this incident.

    The Obama campaign would have us believe that last night on CNN Obama advisor and frequent White House guest, Hilary Rosen, spoke out of turn with her indefensible attack on Ann Romney and every woman who chooses to stay home and raise her family. But in a speech last Friday at “The White House Forum on Women and the Economy,” President Obama seemed to be laying the groundwork for exactly this attack. By last Friday, it was already apparent that the only thing stopping Mitt Romney from becoming the GOP presidential nominee were mere formalities, and talk had already begun...

    Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen wants Republicans to spare her the "faux anger" as backlash against her continues to build for saying Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's wife, Ann Romney, "never worked a day in her life." The remarks were seen as an attack on stay-at-home mothers, being that Ann Romney cared for her five children -- Tagg, Matt, Josh, Ben and Craig -- as a housewife. "Guess what, [Romney's] wife has actually never worked a day in her life," Rosen told CNN, referring to Ann Romney. Ann Romney used her first tweet to suggest raising five children amounted to a...

    A Democratic consultant with ties to the Obama administration sneering that Ann Romney “never worked a day in her life” is an opportunity for the Romney campaign, but a small problem in the big picture. In the big picture, women who are unable to find work in Obama’s economy are a bigger one. Having said that, White House visitor logs indicate that “Hilary Rosen” visited the White House 35 times. Gen. David Petraeus, head of our efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the current CIA director, nine times. Further perspective: Energy Secretary Stephen/Steve Chu visited 16 times.

    Should CNN cede its trademark as the Most Trusted Name in News to the Huffington Post? Despite poor ratings, the cable news network that Ted Turner founded in 1980 has long prided itself on journalistic integrity. But media insiders say CNN's continued ties to lobbyists and special-interest consultants - whom it bills as political analysts - now threaten its sterling reputation. And one source says the network's parent company, Time Warner, is paying close attention to the matter. Two names that repeatedly come up are Hilary Rosen, a former recording-industry lobbyist who was hired to be a D.C. navigator for...

    Despite efforts by record executives to stanch declining CD sales by releasing a cavalcade of big-name artists during the critical Christmas shopping season, early sales figures show an already struggling industry may now be in even worse shape. In the five weeks since mid-November, when the record labels began their biggest holiday blitz in recent memory, compact disc sales were down 12.9 percent compared to the period in 2001, according to data from Nielsen SoundScan, which tracks music sales. That poor performance comes even as new CDs from artists like Shania Twain, Mariah Carey, Jay-Z and Paul McCartney have sold...
