So Romney brings her into the campaign by repeatedly saying she's his expert on women and the economy, and Rosen points out she's a stay at home millionaire mum and therefore doesn't really have any experience relevant to 99% of yankee mums.
That's actually pretty reasonable.
Really, what part of that do y'all disagree with?“His wife has actually never worked a day in her life,” Rosen said on Anderson Cooper’s “AC360” show. “She’s never really dealt with the kinds of economic issues that a majority of the women in this country are facing in terms of how do we feed our kids, how do we send them to school and how do we — why we worry about their future.
This appears to be a Talking Points attempt to deflect from the bad PR from the War on Women talking point. Y'all should stop falling for this stuff.
Her current husband is also a stay at home dad who has a part-time home business at immigration law. Win-win for her, I guess.
So back in January Mitt Romney said: Poor women who stay at home to raise their children should be given federal assistance for child care so that they can enter the job market and "have the dignity of work."
Which means being a single stay-at-home parent is only reserved for the well-to-do.
Or, that single parenting isnt considered "dignified" work.
Wondering about the price of day care vs. minimum wage.
Become a Mormon. then have an extra wife to take care of kids. problem solved.
Seems pretty reasonable to me though, he's saying claiming welfare is less dignified than working. Which I think is true. It doesn't really say anything about 'homemakers' who are not claiming welfare.
The overall idea is supposed to be that Romney is a hypocrite but I'm pretty sure his wife isn't on assistance and has never been on assistance, which is the crux of his entire point.
I agree with Rosen and I just don't think Romney was talking about people who are comparable to his own wife.
And I will probably vote for Obama over Romney. I dislike Romney.
Which one you want to have a beer with is probably the deciding factor, not much to choose from on policy.
Yeah, I'm sure he'd never flip flop on his beer policy to win a vote.
