The falied economic policies of the Obama Administration have hit women hard – 92% of jobs lost have been held by women. On the White House staff, women are systematically underpaid. And now the Obama campaign has added to Obama’s war on women by attacking a mother for staying home and raising her children.
Ann Romney’s debut on Twitter couldn’t have come at a more opportune time.
Ann’s first tweet came just moments after Democratic strategist and DNC adviser Hilary Rosen lobbed an insult at Ann Romney, suggesting that the 64-year-old mother of five and grandmother of 16 had never held a job.
“Guess what, his wife has actually never worked a day in her life,” said Rosen, who was being interviewed by CNN’s Anderson Cooper about the “war on women.”
And then, just like that, a familiar name popped up on Twitter: @AnnDRomney.
“I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work,” Ann tweeted.
Yeah – stay at home moms are so out of touch with real women. Our liberal elite finds it weird and outside the mainstream for a woman to actually stay home and raise her own kids instead of contracting the job out to the day care, the au pair or a nanny.
And remember, Michelle Obama is the ultimate superwoman, working to meet those ordinary childcare expenses that every ordinary family deals with.
“I know we’re spending — I added it up for the first time — we spend between the two kids, on extracurriculars outside the classroom, we’re spending about $10,000 a year on piano and dance and sports supplements and so on and so forth,” Mrs. Obama tells the women. “And summer programs. That’s the other huge cost. Barack is saying, ‘Whyyyyyy are we spending that?’ And I’m saying, ‘Do you know what summer camp costs?’”
Yeah, it was hard for the Obamas to raise two kids on a half-million dollars a year (plus book royalties) – that’s why Barack had to seek new a new job and the family had to move into public housing.
So tell me, who is more in touch with the average American woman? Is it the stay at home mom, or the career woman whose job included making sure that uninsured poor people didn’t come to her hospital?
By the way, I can’t help but be struck by the fact that very Democrats that attacked Ann Romney for choosing to raise her children would be celebrating her if she had chosen to abort them instead – or if she was demanding free birth control from religious groups.
