Mrs. Romney being stay-at-home-mom: Grocery shopping-"Jeeves, make sure to call the grocery for more lobster for tonight's dinner"............ House cleaning- "Jeeves, please call the cleaning service to get house #4 ready for our weekend vacation"........... Taking the kids to school- "Jeeves, be sure to have the chauffeur pickup little Mitt after his tutoring lesson"

Yes, she has it hard keeping up with the homes and all the help. It is hard to keep an eye on Mitt and the kids, and still watch over the staff of housecleaners, yardmen, and nannies. I'm sure they went through many since Mitt likes to fire people.

Cry me a river, Romneys.

Just saw they are too busy to get their accountants to file their taxes right now. Wonder why? The 13% they pay on millions of dollars isn't going to break them. Most likely they will be getting a refund, that will be helpful as a down payment on another Cadillac.

SAME SHOE, DIFFERENT FOOT

The tea bagging right wing nut jobs were in full throated out rage when Mitt made his infamous, "I like firing people," comment. They had a point. It was taken out of context.

It did, however, speak to the narrative that Romney is not like most people in this Country. He doesn't have more money than god but they belong to the same country club.

Likewise, Hillary Rosen's comments were clipped from her statement. Mitt has said that Ann tells him about economic issues concerning women. The point is, Ann has never held a job in the workplace. How could Ann Romney possibly relate to most women who have to juggle working at their job while trying to raise a family and run a household?

This is a little tempest in the little tea pot.

Wealth is a good thing when it's used to improve the fellow citizens through politics, philanthropy or donations to charitable causes. Both Romney and Obama have shown their concern for the less fortunate with their support of things like govt supported health care.

Ultimately, I think Ann needs our understanding. Looking after Mitt can’t be an easy job . . . He does flip flop a lot . . This week he’s roaming around with the NRA and an assault rifle in search of “small varmints” to kill. . . Next week he’ll probably be dissecting another company in search of people to fire. . . With Mitt one just never knows what to expect.

Riverman - the issue is not about wealthy people running for the office of president. It's just a question whether Mrs. Romney is able to empathize with the plight of the middle class women - especially those who are homemakers and also have to work outside the home to help support the family. It was Mitt Romney's comments about Ann's ability to do so that triggered this conversation.

I guess it's easier to express outrage because at a poor turn of phrase, quoted out of context, than to deal with the issues raised by Hilary Rosen's complete comment.

I agree with the President - candidates' families should not be fodder for political diatribe. Hilary Rosen could/should have spoken to the issue without speaking about Ann Romney. In fact, everyone in our society should speak to issues without speaking about the person with whom they disagree. Unfortunately, that is not the model for political discourse in this country.

By the way, I expect that those who scream "hypocrisy" in their defense of Ann Romney will be the first to rise to Michelle Obama's defense the next time Rush Limbaugh et al. utter nasty remarks about her (but, I'm not holding my breath).

I seriously doubt Republicans in support of Romney will grasp your point about wealth. . . . And, of course, Romney has already flipped flopped on the need for healthcare. . . No, I suspect most of these people are advocates of a revised Catechism:

"What is the chief end of man?--to get rich. In what way?--dishonestly if we can; honestly if we must. Who is God, the one only and true? Money is God. God and Greenbacks and Stock--father, son, and the ghost of same--three persons in one; these are the true and only God, mighty and supreme.” [Mark Twain - "The Revised Catechism" 1871]

moonpie said...

I think this is an argument not worth fighting or defending.

Rosen's statement seems to have been intended to further hammer the talking point that Romney & Co are out of touch with most Americans. The truth is, he probably does a better job of demonstrating that than Hilary Rosen could ever do.

The message can be difficult to parse from class envy, and I think Rosen failed miserably.

I have no idea what President Obama actually thinks/thought about Rosen's statement, but he did absolutely the correct thing in response. If I were him, I would be furious with Rosen for her thoughtlessness. Perhaps he is, but he responded with a dignity and grace that is his hallmark, leading by example, encouraging others to behave respectfully..

Tu-quoque makes yet another strawman argument selecting Rosen as representative of Obama's views. Taken to the extreme, this would be like saying chet's arguments are representative of all liberals. Tu-quoque also seems to indicate that he/she thinks he/she knows what the president is thinking ... Yet the implied thought is not something I have witnessed in the president's behavior.

While it would be naive to believe that all pundits or strategist always speak independently of a candidate, it is equally naive to think they always do.

So in cases like this, I must see how the candidates react. In this case, President Obama did the right thing.

If one claims to know if he was sincere, that says more about the individual than it does the president.

Final thought: criticizing women's work choices is almost never smart politics. When will people learn?

I have read about half of the comments and so far it appears that all but one person commenting has completely missed the point about the comment made about Ann Romney. I think the cartoon is funny, but that is neither here nor there. It is not anyone's business whether or not she worked. Families should be off limits in.a campaign. If you want to talk about the candidate, fine. But keep family members out of your comments. I think there is an awful lot of jealousy out there. If Romney is elected, she won't be running the country, he will......spend your time slamming him, but not his family. If you think Obama is so great, tout him. And when you do, think about what Margaret Thatcher said, "The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money". Think about it!

limric said...

Eh, I’ll have to agree with Blackwater48. A tempest in a teapot.

I don’t think the Obama campaign should have apologized or explained anything. Normal women...those without servants, those who have to work outside the home because if they don't there may not be a home...those women (and most Americans) totally understand where Rosen was coming from.

If anything, it further hurt Romney's standing with Joe six pack, because yet again he reinforces the fact that the Romney’s are completely out of touch with real Americans.

Anne Romney has led a highly privileged existence. Her husband had enough money to allow her to live her life in whatever way she wanted. She speaks for no women other than herself and those of her class.

If Obama is going to be blamed for everything issuing from the mouths of any democrat across the country, then it’s fair to say that everything Rush Limbaugh says can be blamed on Romney.

Another good cartoon Clay.

Funny, but not in the ha! ha! sense, that mymy, would ignore the important points. Their daughters college fund. Then misrepresent it as a "tax shelter." Any American can use a portion of their salary to put aside for their childrens' college. dah! It's no different than you or I having a 401K or IRA for our future retirement. Only this is for your child's education. Nothing here! Try digging deeper. For sure you'll come up with some else just as lame or lamer.

Failed to mention: 1. "The Obama’s tax return indicates that the gifts, likely for their daughter’s college educations, began in 2007, when the maximum exemptible amount was $24,000 per couple. The maximum exemption has since increased to $26,000 per couple.."

The real story here is that Hilary Rosen is openly gay. She and her "partner" Ms. Weingarten (who is president of AFT (American Federation of Teachers, aka union boss) attended together the White House state dinner for PM Cameron recently. The real war here on women is between these types and the traditional role of a woman with a husband and family. The GOP was supposed to "take the bait" on this but did not.

MITT STARTED IT

Just a side note for those of you keeping score. It was Mitt who told the world that Ann was keeping him up to speed on economic issues concerning women.

Hillary Rosen spoke to the stupidity of that idea, but she forget to insert the word, "workplace," and I noticed the so-called "liberal" media conveniently edits her statement to make it sound like a broadside (pun intended) against Ann Romney mother of five.

But Rosen is also a mom, and unlike Ann she has had to work for a living.

Okay, I'm calling 'uncle' now.

I believe this dead horse has been beaten enough.

So Rosen is supposedly openly gay. And your point is? What does any of that have to do with the Romneys being out of touch with the average working classed America? Especially, the female working class who are having to juggle both jobs and raise a family?

Backwater

Re Mitt started it.

This is a perfect case and point of something I didn't fully articulate.

When Mitt says something like he gets his perspective on the economic issues facing women from his wife, that alone would lead some people to think he is out of touch or gets an incomplete picture. And this may not be fair. She may be more on top of this issue than many people think.

If one must respond to this, one should say something like, "Well, I hope she gives him a diverse perspective so he understands to issues facing a variety of women, from all circumstances. In general, it's usually not good to have just one resource." And I'd leave it at that.

Of course there is usually at least one idiot in any crowd who will say the wrong thing. Sarah Palin was attacked for going to work when she had a kid with Down Syndrome. Ann Romney is criticized for not having a job outside the home. Different women, with different critics.... at least we should hope.... Otherwise it's just politics. No matter what, criticizing women's work choices is not smart.

Mitt probably wasn't trying to set bait.... And Rosen should know better than to bite.

Well, I see the our wealthy stay-at-home-dad, Mitt Romney, is attacking the rights of women and flip flopping on contraception again:

“In a speech to the National Rifle Association Friday, likely GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney waded back into the contraception wars, attacking President Obama’s health care provision requiring employers, including religiously affiliated groups, to provide contraceptive coverage to female employees — a requirement Romney vowed to repeal. But in doing so, he elided two key facts about his tenure as governor of Massachusetts: that he enforced a very nearly identical mandate at the state level enacted by his predecessor; and advanced a separate one requiring religiously affiliated hospitals to provide emergency contraception to rape victims.”

I see where Romney has filed an extension date request for his income taxes.

Political games aside, the reality is stay-at-home-billionarie dads like Republican Mitt Romney are not really concened about the economic needs of women especially female-headed poor households and their children. As Matthew Yglesias recently pointed out:

“It's worth noting that the House GOP budget Romney has endorsed enacts steep cuts in programs aimed at helping poor people. They want to reduce the budget for Medicaid which gives health care to poor people. But they also want to reduce spending on nutrition assistance to poor people and housing assistance to poor people. Indeed, every single program that helps poor people in the United States would face severe budget cuts under the Romney/Ryan budget. And judging by the Census Bureau's statistics on the demographic composition of poor families (PDF) converted into convenient chart form above, it turns out that the overwhelming majority of poor adults in the United States are women.”

BRP, without the Bush tax cuts and credits Obama could have paid $103,067 in taxes. For someone who was dead against the Bush tax cuts you would think her would not take those credits and pay the 20% rate. He really is a hypocrite.

Doesn't amount of pay often relate to one's job titles and duties under that particular job title?

Are you saying a secret service person working at the white house should have equal pay to a secretary? Now, why don't you scurry own back under that rock and breakdown these unqual pay scales based on gender and job requirements?

April 14, 2012 at 5:13 p.m.
rick1 said...

jjmez, the pay issue has to do with White House staff so using the Secret Service agent as an example does not work. You are correct job duties, work expirence, education, etc should be considered when setting the employee's salary, but in the past that is not how Obama looked at it. Obama has criticized paycheck discrimination between male and famlies in the past and this is exactly what is happening now at the White House.

Here is what Obama said in 2010: In America today, women make up half of the workforce, and two-thirds of American families with children rely on a woman’s wages as a significant portion of their families’ income."

Yet, even in 2010, women make only 77 cents for every dollar that men earn. The gap is even more significant for working women of color, and it affects women across all education levels.

Paycheck discrimination hurts families who lose out on badly needed income. And with so many families depending on women's wages, it hurts the American economy as a whole. In difficult economic times like these, we simply cannot afford this discriminatory burden.

My Administration has already begun to address this problem. In my first week in office, I signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which helps women who face wage discrimination recover their lost wages, and in my State of the Union Address, I promised to crack down on violations of equal pay laws.

http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/statement-president-equal-pay

Obama's former Communications Director Anita Dunn said of the White House: “This place would be in court for a hostile workplace...Because it actually fit all of the classic legal requirements for a genuinely hostile workplace to women.”

In regards to your comment about scurry back under that rock. That is classic Saul Alinkiny to attack the person. D

Undoubtedly Mooshell hasn’t been taking care of her stay at home mom duties. Obozo is visiting Cartagena, Colombia and a 12 man team of Secret Service agents were sent as an advance group to prepare for Obozo’s visit. They arranged for a group of prostitutes to perform but forgot to pay one of them for services he/she was to perform for certain U.S. employee(s). All of the 12 individuals took the fall for this unsightly and embarrassing event and were returned to the U.S. for Mooshell to neuter them."

You are a pathetic, simple-minded liar at best and a real psycho at worst. Your pathetic attempt to insinuate this had ANYTHING at all to do with those men procuring prostitutes for President Obama makes you nothing more than a cheap, lying, small-minded POS.

I think he is pointing out some of the many weaknesses in the campaign "issues" BO supporters are all exhausting their limited intellectual capacity on. Too bad their heads are already too full of BO BS to see that.

Have you noticed that it seems like NOBODY working in the executive branch seems to take the interests of American citizens, the Constitution or their job responsibilities seriously?

As rick1 pointed out, Holder has time to target Roger Clemens but he supposedly does not have any involvement or knowledge about his ATF participating in the mass sale of firearms to known Mexican gang members. Everywhere you look, BO administration officials are missing the big points and focusing the unwashed on trivia that the MSM can handle in a 1 minute segment, looped about 100 times a day.

What I've noticed is that there are more people who are willing to use any and everything they can to discredit President Obama's administration. It's too bad they weren't as vigilant during Bush's administration because maybe we wouldn't be in the hole we're in now. I once said TuDumb was a Neo-con but after his/her pathetic attempt to connect what those Secret Service agents did to President Obama, I must apologize to neo-cons.

I despise Neo-cons have no doubt about that. They took a weakling like W, placed him in the White House then they took control. By the time Poppy and Bush's mother realized the damage they had done it was wayyyy too late to save Jr's legacy. Over 4000 U.S. soldiers had been killed, thousands maimed for life, an economy that was on the brink of a Depression that would have made the "Great Depression" seem like just a slight downturn. So, as much as I despise them for the damage they did to this country, someone like Tu-dumb is not even as good as a neo-con. Neo-cons are like amoebas swimming around in a cess-pool of raw sewage but even they are one step above tu-dumb.
