Barack Obama's war on women

Original post made by Jenny on Apr 12, 2012


Hilary Rosen.

Who does she think she is? I raised four children, and it was WORK!

Give me a break! If she is the the face of the Obama campaign, I will, for the first time in my life, vote for a Republican.

I am woman, hear me roar!

Rosen said this: "What you have is Mitt Romney running around the country saying, well, you know, my wife tells me that what women really care about are economic issues. And when I listen to my wife, that's what I'm hearing."

Guess what, his wife has actually never worked a day in her life. She's never really dealt with the kinds of economic issues that a majority of the women in this country are facing in terms of how do we feed our kids, how do we send them to school and how do we -- why do we worry about their future?" Web Link

So, instead, you'll vote for a party that supports medically unnecessary procedures like a forced transvaginal ultrasound probe.

So, instead, you'll vote for a party that almost unanimously voted against Ledbetter - equal pay for equal work.

So, instead, you'll vote for a party that supports defunding Planned Parenthood, a source for tens of thousands of women to get the only medical care they can afford, like cancer screeenings.

So, instead, you'll vote for a party that supports employers that refuse to insure family planning for our daughters and granddaughters.

So, instead, you'll vote for a party that supports nutjobs like this - the "Catholic League" that doesn't actually represent the Catholic Church @CatholicLeague - "Lesbian Dem Hilary Rosen tells Ann Romney she never worked a day in her life. Unlike Rosen, who had to adopt kids, Ann raised 5 of her own."

Ever read something so obviously written by a spiteful man?

Go ahead, vote for the GOP party that has declared open warfare on women. You won't be with women though.

USA Today poll "The biggest change came among women under 50. In mid-February, just under half of those voters supported Obama. Now more than six in 10 do while Romney's support among them has dropped by 14 points, to 30%. The president leads him 2-1 in this group."

Republicans declared war on women, now they're losing voters.

Who'da thunkit?

Most women work around here. Ann Romney and the poster Jenny apparently have never worked. Who represents women better, those that have worked or the lucky few who haven't had to?

And if Jenny thinks raising kids is work, then she should try WORKING and raising kids. May God bless all working parents.

Sounds to me like it was written by one of the fringe conservative trolls around these boards.

Hilary Rosen is a key adviser to the White House and to the Democratic reelection campaign.

She has visited the White House 35 times.

Gen. David Petraeus, head of our efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the current CIA director, has visited the White House nine times.

Hilary Rosen-as a Democratic and White House spokesperson says that Ann Romneys life and work as a mother, wife and homemaker is trivial.

We we will see how American women and mothers feel about Hilary Rosen very soon,very loud and very clear.

"Ann Romney and the poster Jenny apparently have never worked"

Disgusting! I raised four children, and it was a ton of work!

I worked on a factory line, before I was married. Raising kids is much harder work. I can't begin to desribe how hurtful the Obama campaign has been to me, with that comment from Rosen.

If Rosen wanted to make a statement about Ann Romney's grasp on economics, that is one thing. She didn't. She made a comment that inferred that raising 4 boys isn't work (particularly if you don't get a chance to get away from them very often). I would have loved the opportunity to get away from my kids occasionally for a few hours while I was a stay at home Mom.

Raising kids full time is hard work.

Big difference. Bad mistake.

"I would have loved the opportunity to get away from my kids occasionally for a few hours while I was a stay at home Mom." Most of get to do that for 8-10 hours a day, 5 days a week. It's called a job.

""Ann Romney and the poster Jenny apparently have never worked" - Disgusting! I raised four children, and it was a ton of work!"

Of course it's a 'ton of work'. Now imagine the 'ton of work' raising a couple kids while working.

How can any woman, or even a man, compare raising a family with raising a family while employed?

Please, defend that, ladies. Staying home is a luxury, figuratively and literally. So get over it.

Or go talk to your bff's that work for a living. They'd like to hear you whine about all the work you do. Post it up on your fb page. I'm sure you'll get loads of 'likes' about how easy it is to work and raise kids. Just get rid of all your Farmville links first.

Please, ladies, feel free to go support the party of forced transvaginal ultrasound probes.

...

Sharon: "Hilary Rosen... has visited the White House 35 times. Gen. David Petraeus... visited 9 times." A completely dumb, stupid, nonsensical comparison.

How often did Patraeus visit Bush? More times than Karl Rove, political operative, visited in any given 2 week stretch????

Not even.

Really an embarrassingly inane comparison!

Woman - 'Raising kids full time is hard work.' Rosen does/has/is raising kids. And works. A highly paid, VERY successful woman in a man's field.

Whether you agree with her politics or not.

Isn't that exactly what you and I are raising our daughters to be? Happy, successful, able to compete in today's world, in any field.

@ Marie Lawrence,

Women who have kids and work outside the home, work outside the home and have others (nannies, day care, etc.) raise their kids.

Women who stay at home with their kids, work at home at raising their kids.


Posted by Marie Lawrence, a resident of Meadow Park

'Mom' - Working women get that attitude a lot from certain friends that are very defensive about their choice to stay at home. I usually avoid the subject, as the at-home princesses like to pin that on the rest of us and it's a no-win conversation.

No wonder Meg Whitman lost.

I'm done here. You girls raise your daughters to depend on a man to support them. I'll raise mine to be successful.

Good day. Go back to your Farmville game tomorrow morning, girls. The rest of us will go to work.

Any woman who switches to the Republican party because of Rosen's dumb comment may be too illiterate to read the ballot.

Most women understand their own economic realities, whatever those may be. You may argue that rich Ann Romney has a different economic reality from a woman (or man) with a menial labor job, but that's irrelevant. The issue is not whether someone is paid to work, but rather, whether the person has a decent grasp of economics. Most people (including women) don't understand economic reality beyond their own checkbooks.

The comment Rosen should have made is "if Romney wants to be president, then he should understand economics himself -- not punt the issues to his wife, who is not running for that office." But the sad fact is that most economic policy in this country is developed by people who simply do not comprehend the economic realities that affect most residents. Most policy makers come from privileged backgrounds where they have been shielded from the uncertainties and stresses that plague everyone else.

What is most interesting is the GOP attempt to reignite the mommy wars. Even though those are irrelevant to this particular issue, the GOP may be able to get some traction here. The fact is (speaking as a mom with an MBA and a career that stretches across industries and decades) that most mothers in the professional work force do look down on SAHM, and SAHM are well aware that their role is considered intellectually unstimulating, the kind of work that can be easily palmed off on an immigrant teenaged nanny.

Will rekindling the wars will cause a shift in voters? I guess we will see. Meanwhile, the rhetoric on both sides is entertaining.

Re the "War on Women": If you want to know who is conducting a war on women, just look at the looney anti-woman laws being proposed and passed by Republican legislators in Arizona and many other states. Unneeded medical procedures, allowing or mandating that doctors to lie to patients, and a host of other illogical fiats. Right-wingers telling women to submit to their husbands, to not work outside the home, abstinence-only sex education (which has the greatest impact on young women, who have to bear the children that result from this failed policy), and on and on.

Marie Lawrence

I chose to stay at home to raise my kids (at least while they were young) because it made sense to me and because I had no other option. I chose not to spend money on having a second car, clothes for work, paying for childcare and I did not have the luxury of having someone in the family close enough by to dump my kids with.

While I was at home I worked 24/7 without time off for holidays, vacation time or sick leave. I dragged myself out of bed when I was sick to look after my kids. I even looked after "friends who work" kids on days when there was no school for playdates, or was the emergency contact who had to drop everything and run to school to pick up their kid who had just thrown up all over the classroom as well as themselves and brought them home to my house to clean them up and let them sleep in my guest bed until a parent came home from work to take them home.

I have had kids dropped off at my home before school because of early meetings and asked to pick up at daycare because they were running late.

I have driven for umpteen field trips because there were too few parents available to drive, volunteered in classrooms ad nauseum, filled Friday folders or filed students work, and been in the classrooms on rainy days at lunch time so that the teachers could get their legal break.

I have taken my toddlers with me to doctors and dentists appointments, hair appointments and meetings with teachers and other business appointments.

On the few occasions I met someone for lunch it had to be toddler friendly and or squeezed in between my kids schedules.

I have picked others' kids up from childcare to take to sports practices, helped with others' kids group homework projects and done many other parenting tasks for those who work.

On top of that, I have worked 24/7 in the home and while my kids' were at school I have cleaned house, laundered, grocery shopped, cooked and generally tidied up after my family. I have hardly had more than a few hours not being on call for that urgent "Moooooom" shriek. And as for a date night with my husband, trying to find the time around my kids' busy schedules means that they have been few and far between.

No, I don't think I had time to have paid employment. And for those employed outside the home friends whose kids I was also on call for, I don't think they realise how much their kids were looked after by people like me.

Raising kids is hard work. Having a job that enables you to put them out of your mind for a few hours a day is a luxury!

I am so furious about this that I called my old union shop steward. He is retired now, and he is and was a good guy, under a lot of pressure, when I worked in my union shop. He is heavily involved in teh Obama campaign. He told me that this is a real embarassment, and that Rosen will be gone soon. I hope so!

Rosen will be fired by CNN and her consulting firm this weekend-

-if they have any business sense--Rosen is radioactive with a very long duration.


Hilary Rosen-

- as a leading Demacratic party and White House spokeswoman-

-chose to attack and insult Ann Romney

-few women could possibly come out looking more sympathetic or appealing than Ann Romney.
Breast cancer survivor,
MS patient, devoted wife and,

By comparison, Rosen seems about as small as " what's our comparison du jour, again?

Typical postings, by readers who don't bother reading. Or trolls. Jenny posts a whole page saying how hard it is to be a parent.

Really? Geez-louise, didn't you read? Parenting can be hard. It's a lot harder being a parent when you WORK.

It's all about choices. Some choose to stay home. No worries, just give up the holier-than-thou act. It gets real tiring, that's why working women don't want to hear your SAHM whining.

We get 6 months of republican war on women, everything from fighting equal pay to attacking women's healthcare. Yes, as she said, medically unnecessary forced probes.

And these supposed shut-ins finally react to ROSEN??????? Where were their posts when real issues came under attack? There weren't any, that's the something rotten in Denmark moment.

Not real. Trolls. So busy raising their kids they have time to read (or not read) and post during the late afternoon, between fixing snacks, dinner, diapers, soccer practice, homework, shuttling carpools, the time they describe as the busiest part of the day.

Uh-huh. Riiiiiigghhhttt.

Not real.

Marie, don't waste your time.

The troll is TOO busy calling her old shop steward anyway.

My first break with Democrats came in the early 90s when I was at home making cookies with my 3 year old..and Hilary Clinton came on the radio and derisively said "I didn't just stay home and make cookies". I was appalled that her entire tone was one of derision for my choice to raise my own kids. Followed quickly by NOW President implying she would perform a sexual act herself to Bill Clinton as long as he "kept abortion", and not one liberal woman or NOW standing up and calling the Lewinsky affair for what it was..sexual harrassment of the highest order, and not one feminist standing with the killed woman in the OJ trial.

It has been downhill since. Read "The New Thought Police" by Tammy Bruce for a good understanding of the devolution of thought by liberals. It is appalling.

As a result, and initially appalled with the turn of definitions, I have turned staunchly against the anti-women's choice Democrats. I am for individual choices, live and let live philosophy. A true liberal, who is today's world is called a conservative. I won't ask you to pay for my choices, and I don't want to pay for yours. I won't judge your choices, you don't judge mine.

Simple.

Dear Woman who posted above:

I used to joke, when I went to work, that I went to work to rest! The reality is that most of us don't make enough to make it financially feasible to work, AND pay quality nannies, AND pay for the nicer car, AND the professional clothes, AND the housekeeper, AND the take out meals, AND..well, you get the idea, all the other costs of working outside the home. But I did, half time, to give myself a break from being a Mom. And I figured out that every penny I made working half time paid for all the costs of working, once I was a Mom. I loved being a Mom, but 24/7 was really, really hard.

Addendum to post above: I worked half time for 5 years, then ended up staying home full-time because it got too hard to find another person I could trust enough with my kids.

92,

How many kids do you have? Do you work outside your home? If so, who takes care of your kids? Parenting can be MUCH harder, if a woman cannot farm out their kids, as she chooses, or even is forced, to work outside the home. However, staying home with the kids has its own reawards, despite all the hard WORK!

What is a "troll"? What does that mean?

President Obama needs to fire this Rosen woman, immeidately!

While Hilary Rosen was fired by the Huffington Post, BP and according to the LA Times is a pariah in Hollywood

--Yet she visited the White House/DNC 35 times

The White House/DNC have not fired her today-

-in fact they say she is a non person.

A non person visiting the White House 35 times?

While Gen Petraeus- head of the CIA and head of CENTCOM- only visited 9 times?

Something is very wrong with this White House story-

-Hilary Rosen cannot be a close White House adviser --by evidence-

-and a non person-

-according 5 White House spokesmen today.

Those SAHM who defend your choice (lucky you are to have one!) by saying you can't "afford" to work due to the cost of child care, clothes, gas, etc, are displaying your lack of understanding of economics.

Fact is, research indicates that taking yourself out of the workforce for 5+ years doesn't just deprive you of the income you could have earned, but sets you back permanently. You will never get back to the level of earnings or career success you could have achieved if you had stayed in the workforce.

If you want to justify staying home with the kids, fine, but run the numbers over a 50-year period rather than a 5-year one. That is, if you want to analyze the impact on your financial situation in a rational rather than an emotional way. You will find that it is worth borrowing money when your children are young, if that's what it takes to keep yourself in the market.

If you think staying home and raising kids is harder than having to work and raise kids, fine. Keep trying to convince the rest of us. Good luck with that.

Other than that, your request that I re-read your laundry list of how you let your life be run by others, as opposed to leading your life with children, is pathetic. When I stay home sick, I take care of my kids and do TWICE as much when I'm well enough to return to work.

Jenny - "It is unbelievable to me that Presient Obama is so insensitive to mothers"

What evidence do you have of that?

Everything I've seen of him points to him being a role model for men. Healthy, caring, driven to provide, smart, successful, raised from nothing, handed nothing, to the top of his field, most of all- a loving father and husband. No baggage, no cheating, no current or former substance problems and a church-goer. How is he insensitive?

As far as naive? You obviously didn't read what I wrote - I stand by my statement "Parenting can be hard. It's a lot harder being a parent when you WORK." If you think the opposite, then you may wish to reconsider whom is naive.

The only thing harder and the thing I respect more, is a single parent with sole custody, providing for her children. She is a goddess.

all I see is a lot of mud slinging by men pretending to be women on a community bulletin board. Raising kids is hard if you work or dont work. Neither is inherently harder or easier. My wife worked hard when she worked and raised our kids with me and she worked hard when she was a stay at home mom. Once she made the choice to stay at home, it allowed me to work harder and bring home more income replacing hers. We were a team. However you optmize the workload distribution to raise your kids the best way, its all good. Politicizing whether a woman stays home or works is whats bad. They need to get back to focusing on how they are going to fix whats broken. This topic is just a distraction technique both parties are exploiting.

This is another case of the right-wing media repeating something they want to be true, that is that Romney and his wife have a clue or care about average Americans - I just do not believe that is true.

Even if she "raised" children what does that mean in her case. Without having to work in the outside, or take care of houses, or all the other things regular people do, I am sure she was never in a situation that most Americans could sympathize with, but the right-wing-media makes he sound like June Cleaver Beaver's mother.

Clarifications:

"If she is the the face of the Obama campaign" Rosen is a CNN employee. She is taking the weekend off, after twice apologizing, to be with HER KIDS.

"Hilary Rosen-as a Democratic and White House spokesperson" Sharon lies about Rosen's employers.

"President Obama needs to fire this Rosen woman" Obama can't fire someone who works for CNN.

"It is unbelievable to me that Presient Obama is so insensitive to mothers." This is either incredibly dumb, ignorant of facts, or a troll. Possibly a dumb, ignorant troll. You decide.

"Read my post above and see how much work it is to raise kids when you don't have the luxury of spending hours each day allowing someone else to do it for you!" This describes Ann Romney how, exactly?

"Women who have kids and work outside the home, work outside the home and have others (nannies, day care, etc.) raise their kids." Ann Romney is the unemployed wife of a Wall St guy. She had all the help you decry, and far more. Unless you think she cleaned all half dozen Romney mansions by herself.

Ann Romney's toughest day as a homemaker, before heading out to the club, was trying to make the terribly important decision of which CAR ELEVATOR to install in their multi-million dollar California 'love-nest' - a terribly, terribly difficult decision on how to lift her 'coupla Cadillacs' that Mitt told us about.

Here's a couple photos of some of the cottages that Ann gets down and scrubs clean Web Link Check out the one on Lake Winnipesaukee. Nice!

The car elevator goes into the La Jolla $12 million joint - imagine cleaning a car elevator - you know you just hate cleaning yours, tell the truth girl!!!!!

Maybe her boys can help, but they already have the $100 million trust funds in place, and you know how those trust fund babies hate cleaning car elevators. Web Link And the boys are so busy helping Mitt track the Swiss bank accounts and Cayman Island accounts - something you don't want a woman 'worrying her pretty little head about'!

Bless Ann Romney in her health battles and best of luck to her as a campaign surrogate in reaching out to American working women.

But campaign spokesmen and women, and wives who hit the trail, are fair game. After all, its not like Michelle Obama was ever scrutinized unfairly. Shall we go back in the archives and find the posts by Mom, Jenny, 92, Marie, etc... defending FLOTUS?

Let's get back to Rush Limbaugh demanding sex videos from female college students he calls s**ts. Where was Ann and Mitt lambasting Rush?

"Stay-at-home moms (SAHMs) allegedly were insulted. Working mothers who allegedly envy SAHMs recoiled from the blinding truth of Rosen's observation. Single moms with mouths to feed and no jobs allegedly were furious at the Romneys' apparent cluelessness.

Regular folks, meanwhile, who know better than to argue about "women issues" when the political masses are engaged, somehow managed to get through another night without pondering whether the gender gap can ever be bridged."

and

"President Obama, reminding folks that he was raised by a single mom, noted that women who stay home with children are doing hard work and that anyone who argues otherwise should "rethink their statement." Rosen quickly rethunk and apologized for saying something true, which is never allowed in politics — but the heat is still high.

The fact is, Ann Romney has never held a job outside the home and, inarguably, doesn't have the same experience as those scrapping to feed their families. But this has no bearing whatsoever on her ability to empathize with the challenges of others or whether she is attuned to women's concerns. "

$120,000 worth so far.

I think it is no accident that Obama floated out that the Obamas didn't have "the luxury" of Michelle being a stay at home mom last week. Web Link

I have no doubt that this was a backfired attempt to go after "rich" moms. Too many of us were far from rich, but made the sacrifices needed to stay home with our kids: mind-numbing sometimes, always watching our dollars while watching neighbors buy new cars, fix up their houses, go on nice vacations...but always there to catch those great moments of childhood.

Never heard someone on their deathbed wishing they had worked more when their kids were growing up. But, hey, your choices are yours, mine were mine, Ann Romney's were hers, Michelle's were hers. Judge not lest you be judged. And that is where the Democrat balloon was shot down.

"Judge not lest you be judged." Yet earlier you talked of your judging Hillary Clinton on her cookie comment. Most of us decided to stick with the Secretary of State, you judged differently, and to this day you constantly judge and inveigh against anything Democratic.

"$120,000 worth so far." Yet the head of the DNC said the CNN pundit is not part of the DNC - Fox reported: "Hillary Rosen is absolutely not a paid adviser to the DNC or to the Obama campaign, absolutely not" Web Link

One of your links is quite full of Obama hatred, it rather explains your slanted views - from the first paragraph of your link:

"Asininity, thy name is President Obama"

Really? That's the link you wanted to use?

Maybe you should go back to supposed 'fair and balanced' Fox.

While you help Ann shop for a car elevator for one of their $12 million homes, perhaps you can discuss how qualified she is to advise on issues relating to working women.

Then feel free to bake some more cookies.

Here is another nasty politician that says women at home aren't working, in fact, WOMEN NEED TO GET OFF THEIR LAZY BUTTS and GO GET A JOB.

"Even if you have a child 2 years of age, you need to go to work," <the mean politician said> in January. "And people said, 'Well that's heartless.' And I said, 'No, no, I'm willing to spend more giving day care to allow those parents to go back to work. It'll cost the state more providing that day care, but I want the individuals to have the dignity of work.' "

and the heartless politician also said in the 90's:

"This is a different world than it was in the 1960s when I was growing up, when you used to have Mom at home and Dad at work," Romney said. "Now Mom and Dad both have to work whether they want to or not, and usually one of them has two jobs."

Who is this politician that doesn't understand women?

None other than Ann's hubby, Willard Mitt Romney.

Here's Ann Romney herself, describing her pretend 'outrage':

********************
"It was my early birthday present for someone to be critical of me as a mother," she said. "That was a really defining moment, and I loved it."

Even Ann gets it. Funny how supporting forced probes was okay for the ladies listed above, funny how they were all over this on Day 1 of the phony story, funny how they all disappeared even before Ann acknowledged how stupid this all was.

Ann Romney hasn't a clue how hard it is for a working mother, but she sure knows car elevators.

As Perspective said:; "Judge not lest you be judged."
