    Every right to attack – of course she has the ‘right’ to attack. Is it intelligent? No. Is it justified? No? But that is of no matter. I think is was one of the more unintelligent moves by the dems and that’s saying alot.

  • MJ

    Democrats HATE mothers.

    THAT is the attack.
    THEY are the ones that hate women!

    She works for CNN which is a major part of the democrat propaganda organization, attacking republicans is what she is paid to do, but she is not prostituting her journalistic principles because she would tell a lie on credit even if she was not getting paid for it.

    It is very true that the comments of women like Rosen have set off a firestorm. It is not a liberal, conservative, republican or democrat matter.

    In the past 15 to 20 years more women went into the workforce. Some with masters and some without. Varying reasons for the explosion. Recent years the trend is leveling off.

    The conundrum for the family unit is economy. Whether the family is willing to make sacrifices and both parents discuss all the scenarios.

    Father may stay at home and that is not being discussed. The mother may have a job that pays more, so there is on scenario. Some mothers want to go back to work because the work better at home by being away for a few hours.

    Now, there because of the economy and this administration failure to do something solid and beneficial for America, both parents work.

    Children are shuffle off to grandma’s house, child care or where ever. Some adjust and some have a tough time. It may not show until years later. As long as there are loving parents a child will adjust and flourish.

    Then there are the children who grow up in a home where they feel ignored and then they are awaken and shuffled to a day care or where ever. No matter what we do as mothers or fathers we feel guilty for leaving are children behind. So, if you chose to work or not, I would hope that before preschool mothers could stay during these formative years at home. In my opinion this gives the parent and child time to discuss and learn together and the rewards later will be a more solid foundation for the child.

    Raising children wasn’t difficult for me as I did stay at home and I actually taught my children a great deal before preschool. They are no thriving and when I ask them how they like there time with me they just loved it.

    I also believe this will make fewer bullies, more productive in class and wonderful adults.

  • Kate

    And who is taking care of the kids while their mothers work outside the home? You leave your children with women you have such contempt for?

    Keep it up Democrats. There are more stay at home mothers than you think. They are aware and they vote.

  • Patty

    They are now, thriving ….. correction.

  • Wisconsin

    Has BHO’s ever been gainfully employed? His list of accomplishes or voluntary organization listed? This is a good “wage the dogs tail”? BUT still keeps the public on an issue most can relate to instead of the real problems at hand.

    I have felt this country sliding backwards since BHO’s appearance, especially on social issues. Anyone else feel that way?

    My two cents……….A stay-at-home parent is the greatest community organizer!!

  • Patty

    I believe we are messing up their youth. It seems the kids are growing up to fast. Times have changed and both parents working is not the best thing for a child. If you want kids you need to be there. Again, if only during their formative years because we truly have problems with some kids today.

    You must understand that children need you, they love their parents instruction. We have to make sacrifices and it may be the Dad or the Mother staying home but that is my opinion.

    Less crime, fewer bullies, less acting out in classroom and a all around more attentive person. I am proud of that.

    Ann Romney could have gone on disability. She has MS and had Breast cancer. Who really cares what an airhead says about Ann Romney. And is so good and I don’t believe she has been hurt one bit.

    What does hurt all of us is when these people speak a whole lot of evil jumps out. They don’t think before they speak.

    But Rosen is feeling guilty about her own personal life. There are some serious mental and emotional problems there. It is my opinion.

    I wonder if Hilary Rosen and Julie Roginsky are going to start saying the same thing about the lazy, never been married, welfare mamma’s with five kids like they said about Ann Romney?

    Where I feel that we all could benefit. From less Crime to a growing economy is putting our money on Education. Great moral values and the future for a growing economy is our KIDS.

    I don’t believe things are working so well for anyone these days if our kids are denied at least one parent at home during from birth until at least school age.

    Many of our nations problems would be eliminated and if it took assistance, I am for it. We must not fail our children. The future is counting on them.

    “Ann Romney is a breast cancer survivor and suffers from MS.”

    What does that have to do with it? It’s if she, or other stay at home moms, that weren’t breast cancer survivors and suffer from MS, somehow they would fair game to criticize as not having ever worked a day in their lives??

    The argument, as ridiculous and insulting to the intended targets as it is, doesn’t need a defense involving illnesses or the like. Stay at home Moms work hard period, full stop.

    Don’t play into the premise with a weak defense.

    The New Black Panthers’ Unpunished Threats

    It is exceedingly strange for Holder to praise the likes of Al Sharpton and bring him greetings from President Obama. But it is even stranger that Holder should pledge to the Sharpton activists that he will take appropriate federal action against any civil-rights crime, while he appears completely uninterested in the ugly forces calling for violence against George Zimmerman.

    It’s been three weeks since Mikhail Muhammad, leader of the New Black Panther Party, offered a $10,000 bounty for the “capture” of Zimmerman and warned that Zimmerman “should be fearful for his life.” The Panthers have distributed wanted posters of Zimmerman and offered the bounty “dead or alive.” Just this week, Michelle Williams, the chief of staff for the Panthers, told WTSP-TV in Tampa, “Let me tell you, the things that’s about to happen, to these honkies, these crackers, these pigs, these pink people, these [inaudible] people. It has been long overdue. My prize right now this evening . . . is gonna be the bounty, the arrest, dead or alive, for George Zimmerman. You feel me?”

    Ms. Williams later apologized for her remarks, but her statements and those of other Panthers amount to criminal threats, and could break federal hate-crime laws.

    This is puzzling and our attention should be focused more on this poor job performance on Holder’s part.

    There’s nothing to criticize with the Romney’s, so the Dems are all having a planning session to promote lies and innuendo.

    The GOP is into people’s bedrooms.
    The GOP is out of touch with the working man.
    The GOP doesn’t care about anyone but rich people.
    The GOP is going to take away freedom and force us into a bad economy.

    Huh? What? Wait a minute: that’s the DEMOCRAT PLATFORM.

    Anyway, this is “community organizing” on steroids: throw so much BS out there that the other side is just scrambling. I say pick and choose what WE want to focus on and ignore the rest and STAY ON MESSAGE.

    The gay community should support Romney because Obama supports the Moslems and Sharia Law, which holds that homosexuals should be executed. Of course it’s okay if you’re a pederast. No problem. Mohammad said so. But other stuff: DEATH DEATH DEATH. Death to America. And the O-Beast is only so happy to help his Moslem Brotherhood friends around the world. I think it’s funny that you have all these lesbians supporting Obama and speaking for him, and women with no commitment to family, but the gays are pretty much silent at this point. Maybe they’ve put 2 and 2 together regarding Obama and Islam. I also agree that liberals generally HATE CHILDREN, and HATE MOMS. I know that for certain.

    Attorney for George Zimmerman seeks judge’s recusal

    SANFORD, Fla. – The attorney for George Zimmerman, who’s charged with murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, said he will likely filing a motion for the judge to recuse herself from the case because of a possible conflict of interest. During a 10-minute status hearing that was held Friday in Seminole County, attorney Mark O’Mara said the filing of the motion to have Circuit Court Judge Jessica Recksiedler removed may be “imminent.” O’Mara became Zimmerman’s attorney after being recommended by attorney Mark NeJame, who was contacted by Zimmerman’s family. Recksiedler’s husband works at NeJame’s law firm.

    The authenticity of conservative women has always been under attack by radical orthodox feminists, but perhaps not as brazenly as by someone with such direct and frequent access to the corridors of the White House message machine as Hilary B. Rosen.

    The D.C. career lobbyist and Democratic media strategist took to CNN’s airwaves this week to craft a left-wing “War on Women” attack on the real moms of the GOP. Ostensibly aiming at Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for his “old-fashioned” views of women, Rosen’s mouth instead shot off in the direction of wife, stay-at-home mother of five, grandmother of 16, and cancer and multiple sclerosis survivor Ann Romney. Mrs. Romney, sneered Rosen, “never worked a day in her life” outside of the home and should have no voice on women’s issues.

    President Obama never met a payroll in his life, but that hasn’t stopped him from dictating what business owners across the country should and shouldn’t be doing. But I digress.

    This was no accidental rhetorical drive-by. “Progressives” from Gloria Steinem to Patricia Ireland to Naomi Wolf have derided their conservative counterparts as female impersonators, fake women and men with breasts from time immemorial. It’s SOP: standard operating procedure. In 1992, Hillary Clinton mocked women who stayed at home and “baked cookies and had teas.” In 2004, blueblood Teresa Heinz Kerry, wife of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry, sniffed that first lady Laura Bush (a former teacher and librarian before becoming a homemaker) never “had a real job — I mean, since she’s been grown up.”

    “Democrat activist Julie Roginsky defended Hilary Rosen today on FOX News saying she “had every right” to attack Ann Romney as a stay at home mother.”

    These Democrat petty tyrants always claim “every right” to do whatever they see fit to do.

    It’s a right they think comes with the superior intelligence they think they have.

    My advice: get used to it. Or do something about it in November.

    It’s your choice.

  • Okay people, wake up now and you will see actual liberal change of the subject in order to get American’s eyes off of one issue they caused to happen, then when it’s time to change, they just do it in such a way that it will actually physically push American’s attention from one thing to another.

    Watch this now: liberals created the Martin Zimmerman crisis until it almost reached blood

    Watch this now: liberals saw that the shooting situation was about to explode and they had to do something quick. They looked at their game plan and they moved some things around, and now we have this situation with Hilary Rosen and Ann Romney and the War On Women.

    Watch this now: This is how it starts, and that is with a statement made by Rosen, right in the middle of the arrest of Zimmerman, he’s in jail, he’s been charged just exactly like the Blacks wanted the liberals to do, and they did, but they weren’t going to be left with violating Rules For Radicals: Any situation that starts to drag becomes and drag on the movement. If it becomes a drag, then it’s time to get off of that and move on to something else that you know will hold your people’s attention.

    Watch this now: We see a shift in issues and there is NO MORE news on poor Mr. Zimmerman. He’s in the can and he’s right where liberals want him as other spin off issues like reviewing the law, “Stand your ground” is done to see if maybe it needs to be reversed so these incidences don’t occur on Blacks, the long road of detailing the shooting of Martin, etc. But the shooting will fade, fade, fade until you won’t hear anything about it anymore and that will only take a few hours or a day or two.

    Watch this now: We are in full blown liberal subject, issue, crisis, change today with the WAR ON WOMEN. That is just as overblown as the shooting was. And who is doing this? The liberals who are in control of the message.

    Are we getting the attention of American’s with anything that is important to us, that we know the American people really need to know about, that are crucial to the survival of this nation, and aren’t totally trivial like what issues the liberals keep coming up with to distract our attention??? NO!!!!

  • Joanne

    Rosen had every right to make that comment about Ann Romney, and I am glad she did, because it just exposes how ugly leftard women can be about other conservative women. The U.S. still has the freedom of expression, and I would just let the leftard women hang themselves with their own disgusting hypocritical mouths and actions.

  • But when the enemy has all the TV networks, and we have this half *ss so-called “fair & balanced” news, commetary network that is really nothing more than a little tiny right of center, or right of left towards center, maybe that’s a better description of FOX. We have one, the enemy has ALL THE OTHER NETWORKS.

    This thing with Rosen is so trivial it’s not even funny. It’s meaningless. It moronic, and isn’t worth our attention. But since the liberals know exactly what makes for good TV, we get all wound up just exactly like the left wants us to.

    This thing with Rosen will play out as long as public furor remains where the left thinks some damage can still be pulled from it against the right. When that starts to wain, you watch, the left will come up with another crisis to get all wound up about.

    We haven’t a clue what the left is up to other than they are doing their usual thing. No, they are continueing to distract us. As long as they can do that they are in control.

    Hate to say it but these attacks on Ann Romney and the rest of her family are just the tip of the iceberg. The Romneys are going to be subjected to a character assassination on a scale never seen before in a Presidential election. Hope they punch back twice as hard. Mitt Romney you better hammer Obama on his ties to Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, and all of the other Communists he supports. You better hammer him on his taxpayer funded campaign trip to Kenya in 2006 to support Raila Odinga .

  • Last night I was listening to a radio program that was comparing Obama to all the other Presidents as to what Obama DIDN’T do as far as what he said when he handed the responsibility over to the Congress and Nancy Pelosi instead of standing before Congress and detailing HIS plan of how to do what ObamaCare is to do. The person on the radio program said, “Obama handed a “fill in the blank” as far as how the bill would look, what was in it, and how to implement the program or the whole bill or whatever Nancy was going to come up with.”

    See, Obama never did go before Congress with HIS PLAN, in detail, with all the in’s and out’s of the PLAN that the President is telling Congress “is the way he would like to see it.”. The man on the radio said that this HAD NEVER BEEN DONE BY ANY PRESIDENT IN OUR NATIONS HISTORY. He said Obama never had a plan. He said that Obama never had any of his representatives who could go to the Congress or the press and tell them what the President has in mind in how to get all the people who don’t have insurance and those who have “preexistant conditions”. And that Obama has no intention to offer anything because he doesn’t have anything to offer, and never did, and never will offer anything, and this is my statement and that is that Obama is a COMMUNITY ORGANIZER, and not a President of the United States.

    He is not part of the government in that as other Presidents have been and that is Obama is not a natural born citizen so he is not the legal President of the United States as the Constitution requires by law. So he is outside the law as far as the Constitution is concerned. So he doesnt’ have to come up with anything. All he has to do is go to the Congress and tell them like he did and that was “Give me a health care bill that has the things in it that I want and that it is something I can sign.” Obama has always told Congress “get me a bill I can sign”. He has never sent them a plan that had the appropriate details and all the other things in it that it’s supposed to have that all the other Presidents have presented during their presidency.

    Obama is a fraud, a criminal, a illegal alien, is operating outside the Constitution, and should be arrested right now before he does anything else that is like he already done. Look at all the money he has already sent to all his supporters and friends, millions and billions.

    What happened to the 534 million dollars he gave George Kaiser? What happened to it. Ever heard of a President “giving” money to anyone? Ever heard of a President who went over the heads of the GAO and took the money from the Treasury and gave it to whoever he wanted to, in this case Solyndra, and why is it that every one of the solar and wind companies that Obama gives money to goes bankrupt right away? That way see they can hide the money and the IRS will take years to get the company to turn over any record of it. By that time Obama will have gotten it into his campaign coffers and used it to run his campaign. Obama is a master at doing everything that is how this government works and he knows how to beat the system better than any Black who has two or three S.S. number’s.

    This attack on Ann Romney is just another deflection from the real issues of the election. And Ann Romney fell into the trap hook, line and sinker.

    And Republicans are stupid for giving it airtime and suckers for allowing the Democrats to frame the debate. Palin already warned the GOP that they are totally unprepared……and wasn’t she right, again.

    ” the republican party chose to make bedroom politics and what women do with their reproductive choices a core plank of their election strategy.” the republican party. really!

    the catholic church complained about an issue of religious freedom and the DEMOCRATIC PARTY chose to frame that religious freedom issue as a issue of reproductive rights. the catholic church never tried to deny women “reproductive rights”(try to find that in the constitution)they just said if you have the freedom to use contraceptives we have the right not to pay for it.

    if was the DEMOCRATIC PARTY that took that religious freedom issue and framed it as a women’s rights issue to make it a core plank of their campaign strategy. if was nancy pelosi and the other democrats that stormed out of the committee hearing as a political stunt to deflect attention away from the religious freedom issue and got sandra fluke to testify at a fake committee hearing that was in reality a news conference to make this whole bogus “war on women” a campaign issue. no julie roginsky it was not the republican party that made this a campaign issue that is a barefaced lie, it was the DEMOCRATC PARTY that did that.

  • bobdog

    If Rosen had “every right” to attack Ann Romney, then I have the right to consider Obama a resident alien, a potential terrorist, a racist, and an incompetent.

    The difference is, I will be closer to the truth. But unlike Rosen, I’m willing to support my namecalling:

    “Resident Alien”? Although I never bought into the birther issue, many do, and I should be free to call him what I like.

    As for “terrorist”, one can argue, with some authority, that Obama has caused more economic destruction than Osama bin Laden ever even dreamed of.

    “Racist”? Easy: Trayvon. Henry Louis Gates. Eric Holder.

    “Incompetent”? Figure it out yourself.
