Is the War on Women Real or Manufactured?

Politics got personal on Wednesday when Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen accused Mitt Romney's wife, Ann Romney, of having "never worked a day in her life." It moved Mrs. Romney to send her first tweet ever ("I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work"), setting off a debate over the decision to work or stay home. But The Christian Science Monitor is calling it a "fake" debate.

Ann told Fox News, "[Rosen] should have come to my house when those five boys were causing so much trouble, it wasn’t so easy. My career choice was to be a mother. And I think all of us need to know that we need to respect the choices that women make. Other women make other choices to have a career and raise a family, which I think Hilary Rosen has actually done herself. I respect that, that's wonderful... We have to respect women in all those choices that they make."

But Rosen is sticking to her guns, and responded to the criticism in a CNN editorial: "I have no judgments about women who work outside the home versus women who work in the home raising a family. I admire women who can stay home and raise their kids full time. I even envy them sometimes. It is a wonderful luxury to have the choice. But let's stipulate that it is not a choice that most women have in America today." We're not sure if Hilary Rosen or Ann Romney wins this debate, but that's not really the point. Do you think these kinds of feuds are real -- or just manufactured to get a vote in politics?

    Not concerned about wrecking others' lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.

    * Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
    A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.

    * Shallow Emotions
    When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.


    * Need for Stimulation
    Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.

    You have been fooled and blinded so thoroughly by the Left Wing, Liberal Democratic establishment that you can't see the forest because of the trees. You have been lied to and deceived. You have been led to believe that you are less than you truly are. The only problem that Republicans have, is explaining their positions in a clear enough way for everyone to understand.

    Blah, blah, blah. Way to use up a bunch of words without actually saying anything at all. What the heck do you mean, less than I truly am? Talk about meaningless. Could I be a King? A CEO? Head of my own household with the right to tell my wife what to do? What? The problem with Republicans is that they believe that straight white men should be in charge of everything, by some kind of God-given right. Well excuse me, but not all men believe that , and I'm one of them.

    The Republican Party, by its opposition to actual policy positions like the Lilly Ledbetter Act, the funding of Planned Parenthood, and hate crimes legislation having to do with minorities, has proven itself to be homophobic, racist and sexist. By its opposition to the Occupy Movement, the Republican Party has proven that it really only answers to the top 1%, that is the wealthiest Americans. I'll expand my comment above to say that I don't understand why anyone who is not a straight white male member of the top 1% votes for Republicans. Rod, I do agree with you that Republicans have failed to explain their positions. Give it a try, rather than blathering on about lies and "less that you truly are".

    Any backing of that up? How about how can any men vote Democrat, or any woman who cares about gender equality? Biden helped creat the Violence Against Women Act, which is a big middle finger to male victims of violence, and Obamacare createsnew offices for the healt of women, while leaving the number of offices for male health still at zero, even when men die earlier than women.

    I am a woman who couldnt vote for a democrat. My husband and I struggled raising our kids and trying to make ends meet. Through it all we never spent more than we had. I am and always have been fiscally responsible. We never asked for a handout, we just worked harder. I cannot support a party who doesnt believe in the same.

    That Sarah Palin quit her Governorship in Alaska is about as factual as statements can get. And if you can watch 5 minutes of that interview and come away with a positive opinion about Palin's mental abilities, then there is really no hope for you.

    Republicans men resent women taking their jobs and being independent. They keep slipping up and letting this dirty little secret out on occasion. The fact we had to pass a law to bring pay equity to the work place is all the proof you need. Hillary Rosen misspoke while trying to make a point. It wasn't intended as a slur against Ann Romney. Knowing the price of milk or gas does not make one any more of an economic expert than being a police officer or doctor would. Making an issue out of Rosen's poor choice of words is just plain politics. Republicans are desperate to make an issue out of anything they can find.

    The war is real on conservative women. Working with one child is difficult, working with two is a challenge, working with three children is just insane and not worth the expense of having a job. Mothers are the hardest working people on earth and the least appreciated. Getting a paycheck for your work efforts can be a lot easier than raising children with little appreciation. Mothers do not need attacks from a self admitted, jealous, liberal shrew.

    Yes, the war on women is very real as it is on minorities and the working class. The same people that wage these wars are the real terrorists that want to concentrate all the wealth into the hands of the rich and leave everyone else to fend for themselves like animals.
