Political Cat Fight! Ann Romney Vs. Hilary Rosen!

| Filed under: PolitikSad Sad

All right, here we go you guys. Things are getting diiiiiiiiiirty in the world of politics (though, it's never clean!)!

Hilary Rosen claimed that Ann Romney “never worked a day in her life” while she was talking about Mitt Romney claiming to use Ann for advice on women and the economy, even thought her situation is VASTLY different than an average mom's economical standing.

Those words did not fly well with people who took them as meaning that being a stay at home mom wasn't a job (and it totally is, it's one of the hardest!). People became outraged.

The thing is this, though – Hilary chose the wrong way of saying her point, but we feel like it was pretty easy to see regardless. She was not attacking moms for a lack of hard work, but rather she was calling attention to the fact that Ann Romney specifically can not know the kind of extra struggle that comes with trying to hold a job (or multiple jobs) while being a mother or being a single mom. Not that there wasn't any struggle at all.

But Ann and Mitt and The Republican National Committee are running with the inferred insult anyway — because why not? Would any of us expect any less from politics? So Ann went on tv with Martha MacCallum to talk about it.

Watch the clip (above)!

PS. Hilary has since apologized to both Ann and the rest of moms out there that didn't get the original message.

What do U guys think? Is Ann making mountains out of molehills, or does Hilary deserve all this flak??

    and i am sure many people will never know having to raise 5 young boys be diagnosed with MS and breast cancer and SURVIVE. Obama said his wife was off limits during the election in 2008, Romney's wife is off limits now. and to belittle her abilites in any way is trash.

    This is not a personal attack. This is ridiculously blown out of proportion. Hilary Rosen was merely commenting on something Mitt Romney said about his wife, which is TRUE! it's nothing malicious. She cannot connect with the average woman from a place of life long privileged and wealth. This is not to say her job as a mother is insignificant, I'm sure she's a great mother. Being a mother is an incredibly difficult, yet admirable job. Hilary Rosen in no way said anything negating her position as a mother. I don't see anything wrong with this statement other than her tone when she says " she has never worked a day in her life" that is snide. Other then that, lets all stop behaving like toddlers and only react to the comments someone actually made, and not read into something that is simply not there!!!!

    Hillary obviously still had a problem with her staying home, which is something I as a Stay At Home Mom run into occasionally. I'm so tired of so many people getting on the Romney family for being well off. Mitt Romney worked hard and earned his wealth, why is he being made out to be a villain because of that? Let's all excuse Rosen because obviously Ann Romney must be incapable of being empathetic and understanding of other women and the economic issues they may face. By the way, looking at Rosen's history, she may have worked but I don't see that she had a serious financial struggle so she may be considered just as out of touch at the end of the day.

    with all the really horrible things going on in this country. ms. rosen needs to find something better to do with her time than judging a woman who raised her children despite having MS and breast cancer.ms. rosen why don't you find something more productive and meaningful with your time.

    Perez, you have just lost a faithful reader. Please stick to celebrity gossip or report politics in a less bias way.
    When Ann Romney and Mitt were first married they lived in a $75/month basement apartment and worked their way up to what they have now. They should not have to apologize for their intellect and success. Ann had a child while in college and still finished her degree despite being a new mother. She raised 5 young boys, all close in age, without the help that her finances could afford. She has survived breast cancer and continues to face a long, uphill battle against MS. To insinuate that Ann Romney may has never 'worked' is ludicrous. Ann has not worked in the traditional sense, but she has been working and fighting all of her life and has had struggles Hilary Rosen will never understand.

    as if perez….if some republican had said that about a democrat you'd cry foul and outrage and get your pink panties all in a knot and call it bullshiz and cray cray and whatever childish idiotic phrases you're always spouting….but of course all the liberals are now scrambling to down play what was said…..give me a break!

    BOY PEEEREX the DNC should be paying you for your bullshit SPIN. the bitch said what she said, fuck her

    ICYMI - The Democrat-led Congress passed a law in 2009, signed by a Democrat President (Obama), which makes it harder for stay-at-home moms/spouses to get a credit card in their own name. Why? Because stay-at-home moms don't have any income. Between this and Hilary Rosen, I wonder which political party can rightly said to be waging a "war" against women. . . .

    Stop showing your stupidity Perez. Hilary Rosen knew exactly what she was saying and it backfired on her. Instead wasting time on this, just say Hilary is game so I support her and other liberal politician -regardless of what is best for the country. As long as they support gay marriage, that's all I care about. At least then you would be honest, instead of trying to sound smart and coming out stupid.



  14. 14

    I would have a hard time telling anyone who has fought cancer and who has multiple sclerosis, that they have never worked a day in their life! I would think that fighting those diseases would be harder than ANY job!
    Therefore Hilary Rosen is either the most ignorant excuse for a human or the biggest political driven idiot! You pick!

    Re: TruthSquad – I wish Perez had a 'like button'. So well said!

    And President Obama has never worked in the Private Sector… I guess that is why he also is unaware of "the kind of extra struggle that comes with trying to hold a job" in the real world.

    Seriously, why don't you stick to what you are good at, Mario? Celebrity gossip. Getting news on your site is a JOKE.

    I'm a single mom of 2 kids, one of how is an adult, an entrepreneur, and in no way would I ever consider being a mom a "job". That is such a disservice to my children. A job is paid employment. Being a mom is a privilege and is very simply not a job. You can call it something else, but not that, because it isn't



  18. 18

    She stood by her remarks until she realized the heat wasn't going to cool off…. she's an idiot - what president or their wife can really relate to the middle class? Don't even try to pass off the Obama's as middle class Americans!

    Perez…. I loved reading these comments. You got spanked as you should have for being the meany that you are.

    Re: light2you – Sorry that you feel that way about moms that choose to raise their children, instead of daycare! You sound like a jealous ,resentful person that would belittle another mom! I wouldn't trade a day of raising my children, for a paycheck, nor would I insult a mom because she works! Get some class honey!! BTW how much do you pay to have another person raise your children while you are at work? Is that not a job?

    The libs don't consider stay at home moms a job because they can't get any taxes out of them.
