For a while I was just stunned to learn that the terrific, sensitive, caring and wonderful President who gave America The Lilly Ledbetter Act was deliberately and systematically underpaying his female employees. That was until Hillary Rosen filled us in on what the Obama White House really thinks about “The Little Woman.”
Now I don’t know about you, but when I was kid, I added additional mileage and wear and tear to my poor mother that went beyond the ravages of time. My own wife finds raising two small children harder than her old job working in IT. She wishes she could go back to “work.” Having a job is quantifiably easier than staying home and caring for small children. All of this autobiographical data goes to point out what an insane, heartless fool Hillary Rosen truly is when she announces with grandiloquent arrogance that Ann Romney (who raised FIVE children) never worked a day in her life.
My wife counts the days until our daughter is old enough to start with Pre-K. This isn’t because she doesn’t adore our cute, little daughter. This is because keeping track of a toddler, a house and all the other details of day-to-day life is WORK – hard work. The first thing I get when I walk through the door each evening is two hands full of toddler. I’ve read that this not an uncommon experience for men who are married to women who tend hearth and home while we support our families.
Ann Romney had totally heard enough of this self-important, yuppitista butt-wipe. She demonstrated feminine independence by answering Hateful Hillary as follows: “I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work,” Ann tweeted.
And while Hillary Rosen is the utterly typical Obama campaign staffer, he wasted no time letting her kiss pavement underneath the wheels of the bus.
“I could not disagree with Hilary Rosen any more strongly. Her comments were wrong and family should be off limits. She should apologize,” Obama campaign manager Jim Messina said in a tweet. Top Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod also tweeted his disapproval: “Also Disappointed in Hilary Rosen’s comments about Ann Romney. They were inappropriate and offensive.”
Of course they had to disown Hillary Rosen. She was egregiously honest. She told people exactly what she genuinely believed. She has no understanding of; and no respect for a woman who could do anything with her life and considers raising her children the highest possible calling. Hillary Rosen considers this a waste of time and talent. It makes her a perfect representative of the anti-traditional left. The only thing she did wrong, in the reptilian eyes of David Axelrod, was publically admitting it.
