Like most Democrat memes, this one is chock full of projection.
Hilary Rosen, a Democrat operative and a partner at Anita Dunn’s PR firm, attacked Ann Romney yesterday over her choice of vocation. Apparently, Ms. Rosen does not think too highly of homemakers, which should make Mrs. Earp very proud. You see, she gave up her teaching career to stay home and raise our four children.
Mrs. Earp works very hard raising our little crumb-crunchers, but in Hilary Rosen’s world, Mrs. Earp is a know-nothing bum.
Hilary Rosen … charged that Ann Romney “hasn’t worked a day in her life” and suggested that Ann Romney can’t possibly understand economic issues because she’s a lowly homemaker:
“What you have is Mitt Romney running around the country saying, ‘Well, my wife tells me 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 never actually worked a day in her life. She’s never really dealt with the economic issues that a majority of the women in this country are facing…”
Considering Ann Romney is a breast cancer survivor who reared five children and played the backbone to her successful husband, I’m not sure this is a battle Democrats want to pick.
The article doesn’t mention it, but Ann Romney also suffers from MS, so Rosen is doubling down on the despicable here. In fact, moments after the story broke on Twitter, both David Axelrod and Jim Messina – Obama’s closest advisers – condemned Rosen’s idiotic comments. What does that tell you?
UPDATE: The real “War on Women” is being waged in the Obama White House, where women are paid less than men.
