    My Mom chose to be a stay-at-home Mom, raising us 5 kids while Dad worked.

    DNC women like Hillary Rosen and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz continue to spew out asininities.

    Ah, a Daily KOS reader ~ another fabricator of News

    No full-time maids only the four that worked part-time on 2010 push for Congress.
    Which is a helleva lot less than Michelle's 26 assistants
    (which is 2 1/2 times Laura Bush's Staff)

    Obama Set Up, Prepared The "Ann Romney Doesn't Work" Attack
    —Ace

    ....This is from last Friday, says John Nolte, who made this connection.

    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.

    It sure seems, then, like the White House cooked up this line of attack, and Hilary Rosen, who's been there 35 times and advises Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (in order to help her "tone it down," ironically enough), was simply delivering the Daily Two Minute Hate, as ordered by her bosses.

    And in that case the White House's and the Obamas' and Messina's and Axelrod's claims of finding fault with the comment are, naturally, completely disingenuous.

    By the way-- Sandra Fluke? Hilary Rosen's PR firm represents her.

    I think there is a point being missed.

    It is really unfortunately for me that I did not hear this statement first hand BEFORE all the din and spin hit the airwaves. What I get out of it is ambiguous at best.

    I hear her saying that Mrs. Romney cannot relate to issues that effect women who MUST work to keep their families roof over their head alongside their spouse, if they have one. She is to be lauded for choosing to remain at home raising a family, and from all appearances, a successful one at that. In this day and age, that is a luxury, not like it was in the 50's after the war. (BTW,my mother would have been a concert pianist had she not forgone her love of music to be a SAH parent)

    It is a mischaracterized attempt to make light of the fact that Mrs. Romney is the spouse of a successful man and has the privilege many women wish they can have and this is where her point is supposed to be made. How can she relate to working women who have to earn money at a job to sustain a family? Yes, great. Being a full time parent is a job, but it carries no wage. Just the purest satisfaction that you were able to contribute time as a wage for the betterment of your family.

    I think she is taking way too much heat for something she misstated and with a bit too much of a sl...

    All this attacking effluence needs to stop on both sides. I am rather sick of it already. Have been for decades.

    Even stay at home moms have to think about the economy. They have a household budget to keep and when the gas prices go up so does the cost of food. The farmer has to pay more for gas to run his farm equipment, the trucks taking the food to the processing plants and grocery stores have to pay higher gas cost and the people buying the food have to pay more just to get to the store. When Obama took office I could gas my car for $40 every 10 days ($120 a month). Now it cost me almost $115 to fill the tank once ($345 per month) I live on a fixed retirement and for the first time in 3 years I got a cost of living raise of $20. I am falling behind over $200 a month just because of gas.

    Has anyone stayed at home to be able to raise your children? If you have then you know how hard it can be. It's not a 9 to 5 job, you can't just take a break when all hell breaks loose, or when you kids are sick, you don't simply punch out at 5 and wait to attend to the problems tomorrow. Hilary Rosen doesn't know what the hell she's talking about. If I was a stay at home Mom, I would be pissed at this bit*h!

    Being a single mom for years I can honestly say that being a mom is a lot of work....and not everyone can do it. I feel that by staying home with her children and not working outside of the home makes her a hell of a woman. She should NOT be ridiculed for that! Many mothers would love to stay home with their kids and can't....She doesn't deserve this baloney and someone needs to find someone else to pick apart. Can't people just accept people for who they are and where their life has led them? Who has the right to judge her???? NO ONE!

    Democrats are really screwed with this gaffe.....I was a stay at home mom of 4 for 16 years and it is the hardest job ever. My husband and I made the choice together to sacrifice and allow me to raise our kids...It was the hardest and most rewarding job of my life and my husband made 1/4 what Barack to elitist made and we made it. There are those who really can't afford to have a mom stay home but a sorry ass no good for nothing man who makes 162,000 a year and he has the nerve now to say they "didn't have that luxury"..what a crock....money and political influences were more important to the Moose and BHO than raising those kids...don't insult us all now..

    WASHINGTON -- For a woman with three houses and sixteen grandkids, Ann Romney doesn't have very much help around the house, according to her 2010 tax return.

    IRS forms released Tuesday by Mitt Romney's presidential campaign show that despite reporting income of $21.7 million, the couple paid only $20,603 in taxable wages for household help in 2010. This figure was divided among four women: Rosania Costa ($4,808), Kelli Harrison ($8,667), Susan Moore ($2,238) and Valerie Cravens Anae ($4,890).

    According to a number of Boston-based domestic staffing agencies, the salary range for a housekeeper is between $20 and $30 an hour, which adds up to an annual salary of $40,000 to $50,000 based on forty-hour weeks and two weeks of paid vacation a year.

    But this number is only for one house, and the Romneys have three houses -- a 2,000 sq. ft. townhouse in Belmont, Mass., a 5,400 sq. ft. lake house on 11 acres in Wolfeboro, N.H., and a beach house in La Jolla, Calif., that is undergoing renovations to double its size.

    Now, I am even more impressed with Ann Romney!

    In spite of her disease (MS),I am amazed that she can take care of three large homes and a family without full time help!

    She will make an awesome First Lady! I am sure she has always been proud of
    this country!

    Did you ever think that they worked part-time? Perhaps they "boarded up" their other properties when they weren't there. If Susan Moore worked full time she would be pulling in $1.07 per hour. Really? Think so?

    You forgot this part of the story:

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com...
    The designation of household employees is BROAD, and can INCLUDE housekeepers, baby-sitters, personal assistants and other house-related tasks. It's possible that the Romney's hired an OUTSIDE cleaning service to clean their houses and that managed the payroll, but the campaign declined to elaborate on their arrangement. Given the private nature of jobs like these, most high-profile individuals prefer to maintain their own staffs of people who know them well and who they trust.

    I think right now Obama is pretty pissed at Rosen right now. It's not Obama's war on women it is one far left liberal(which Obama is a more moderate liberal). I don't think Obama would approve of what she said at all. I think the right is really trying to spin their huge screw up with women by making up a very lame "Obama's war against women" bit. I also think women are way smarter than that.
