The likes of another feminazi makes a fool of herself…AGAIN! If you haven’t followed much of Hilary Rosen over the years…you’re going to love this story, it’s simply too much fun at this stage of the game.
As a side-note before we start, Hilary Rosen has been to Dear Leader’s WH approximately 36 times in the last three years, so dems, do not try to tell us she has no connections with the O-Team. We aren’t ‘Stuck on Stupid‘ like you are.
The fun actually started with Mitt Romney’s interview on Fox yesterday morning. You can catch the video and such here, it’s well worth your time. In this interview he stated that more women have lost their jobs since Dear Leader has been in power and he gave the statics etc…well, dontcha know the dems went ballistic and the fight ensued thereon.
Which brings us to this…and I happened to catch it live last night, which really doubled the fun for me, being the political junkie that I am.

Hilary Rosen, a partner at the public relations firm SKDKnickerbocker, said Ann Romney “has never actually worked a day in her life” in response to a question about the “war on women” during a Wednesday Anderson Cooper panel:
ANDERSON COOPER: To the Romney campaign’s point, they say they’re focusing on the economy, and that’s what women say they overwhelmingly care about right now in poll after poll. And whether it’s a typical pattern or not, women are seeing jobs come back much more slowly than men are. Is there anything really wrong then, on reaching out to women on an issue that they care about, on the economy?
HILARY ROSEN: Well, first, can we just get rid of this word, “war on women”? The Obama campaign does not use it, President Obama does not use it—this is something that the Republicans are accusing people of using, but they’re actually the ones spreading it. With respect to economic issues, I think actually that Mitt Romney’s right, that ultimately, women care more about the economic well-being of their families and the like. But he doesn’t connect on that issue either. What you have is Mitt Romney running around the country saying, “Well, my wife tells me what women really care about are economic issues.” And, “When I listen to my wife, that’s what I’m hearing.” Guess what? His wife has never actually worked a day in her life. She’s never really dealt with the 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—why we worry about their future. So I think it’s, yes, it’s about these positions, and yes there will be a war of words about the positions, but there’s something much more fundamental about Mitt Romney—he just seems so old-fashioned when it comes to women, and I think that comes across, and I think that’s going to hurt him over the long term. He just doesn’t really see us as equal.
Well, after she said this, all hell broke loose and then some via the twitter-world, I was more than tickled because usually zilch happens to a dem operative such as Rosen, but it did! Ann Romney tweeted immediately after this segment, which by the way was the first time she had ever used twitter…so next up we have Ann Romney on Fox this morning.

The RNC is calling for an apology from DNC consultant Hilary Rosen after she made controversial remarks about Ann Romney being a stay-at-home mother. Rosen told CNN that the wife of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney shouldn’t be talking about the economy’s toll on women, saying, “His wife has actually never worked a day in her life.”
Ann Romney responded to these comments on today’s America’s Newsroom, saying, “She should’ve come to my house when those five boys were causing so much trouble … It wasn’t so easy.”
While she understands that Rosen had made a different choice, she told Martha MacCallum that her career choice was to be a mother and said, “We need to respect women and all those choices they make.” She also gave a shout out to all of the fathers staying at home with their children saying that this job is the most important thing you can do, in her opinion.
Ann said that her husband told her more times than she could imagine that her job was more important than his. She told Martha that he would say, “Your job is a forever job that’s going to bring forever happiness.”
Since she’s been on the campaign trail with her husband, she said that women are talking about jobs and the legacy of debt that we are leaving our children.
Although she hasn’t had many financial struggles in her life, she wants people to understand that “Mitt and I have compassion for people who are struggling, and that’s why we’re running.”
In response to Rosen’s comments that Mitt Romney doesn’t see women as equals, Ann said, “That is not correct at all.” She feels this is a complete misconception about her husband, saying, “Mitt Romney is a person that admires women, and listens to them … he cares.”
So instead of Rosen using her smarts and backing off…she ‘Doubles Down on Stupid‘ again this morning!

Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen appeared on CNN’s Newsroom Thursday to address the firestorm over her comments to Anderson Cooper that Ann Romney “actually never worked a day in her life.” Carol Costello held Rosen’s feet to the fire over the controversy her comments caused. “You know what you’ve done, Hilary, right?” Costello asked. “You stirred up the war between working moms and stay at home moms. Now that’s what we’re talking about.”
“Well, but this really isn’t about stay at home moms versus working moms. It’s about women in general. I love stay at home moms. I have nothing against them. I support them all the time. Go to CNN.com to see everything I have said about working moms. What the good conversation here is — is does Mitt Romney have a record about women and a plan for women that helps working women and women struggling economically to find a better future? That’s the challenge that I have for Mitt Romney.”
“But that’s not how people took your comments,” Costello asked. “They said it was offensive and that you were attacking stay-at-home moms. I mean, you said Ann Romney never worked a day in her life. This is a woman that suffered breast cancer, and has MS, she raised five boys. That’s hard work.”
“Look, I have kids. Being a mom is the hardest job in the world. That’s the truth of it,” countered Rosen. “I have said consistently that the –look, Mitt Romney has brought his wife into this conversation. This is not about Ann Romney. This is about the waitress at a diner in some place in Nevada who has two kids whose day care funding is being cut off because of the Romney/Ryan budget and she doesn’t know what to do. This isn’t about whether Ann Romney or I or other women of some means can afford to make a choice to stay home and raise kids. Most women in America, let’s face it, don’t have that choice. They have to be working moms and home moms and that’s the piece that I am not hearing from the Romney camp. Instead everybody is attacking me. That’s fine, attack me. But it does not erase his woeful record on this issue.”
Costello told Rosen that conservative women say that her comments exemplify how liberal women have no clue about conservative women and how they want to live their lives.
“I don’t think that women across this country who have to work to support their families and raise their children look the divide [as] between liberal women and conservative women,” Rosen said. “Women see themselves as having a tough time and wanting leaders to speak to their issues. Barack Obama has done that. Mitt Romney has not. And the Republicans are making a very effective strategic decision today to attack me instead of talking about the issues that have been raised over the last few days.”
Now, just a few more repercussions to the backlash that Rosen has received, some from leftist-loons themselves who are jumping ship like the rest of the rats who work for Dear Leader.
This is a must read…it has so much in it from some of Dear Leader’s right-arms. Check it out here. Too much fun, you don’t know what you’re missing if you don’t click the link. Tweets from these twits included.
Then we have this from another dem operative, none other than Bubble-Head Mika Zbig who has her daily talking-points down pat via instructions from the WH.
The team at Morning Joe took a look at the controversy this morning, playing a clip of Rosen’s original comment.
“That was an unfortunate statement,” said host Mika Brzezinski.
As Joe Scarborough sees it, this back-and-forth is indicative of a divide not often acknowledged by the media. “It’s amazing,” he said, “the divide between professional women, on one side, unmarried women or married women without children — predominantly Democratic. The other side of the divide? Married women with children who stay at home — predominantly Republican.” Rosen and Romney, he continued, represent this very divide.
John Heilemann noted that there’s no upside, politically, to Rosen’s comment where Democrats are concerned, but still held the Romney campaign to account for not immediately recognizing and having a firm take on the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act during a recent conference call.
Scarborough added that this sort of discussion is indicative that we’re venturing away from the primary and further toward the general election.
“Look,” said Brzezinski. “Mitt Romney needs to connect with women. Mitt Romney needs to do it. I think there’s some unfortunate… potentially even risk to sort of putting Ann out there, maybe even outside her comfort zone. Maybe not. But having said that, the comments that are making news this morning by Hilary Rosen… when someone has five boys and is working with her husband on three major jobs before he runs for president… Marriage is a team. And a lot of couples work together, and that couple works together. That woman works. It was an incorrect statement.” You can read full story here.
There’s so much more…but good ol’ Michelle Malkin summed it up best this morning on Fox and Friends.
Michelle Malkin appeared on Fox & Friends on Thursday where she was was asked for her opinion on Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen‘s comments about former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney‘s wife, Ann Romney. On CNN last night, Rosen said that Romney should not be taking policy advice from his wife on issues like the economy because she “has never worked a day in her life.” In response to that assertion, Malkin said that Democratic women have for nearly 20 years displayed “contempt for all conservative moms.”
When asked to weigh in on Rosen’s comments, Malkin asked, smiling broadly, “a mother of five sons?”
“This is not a coincidence, by the way,” Malkin continued. “We pointed this out when this thing exploded on Twitter last night when Ann Romney joined Twitter to push back at this frontal assault. That Hilary Rosen, a career D.C. lobbyist and a woman of great elite privilege in the D.C. community, is someone who works alongside Anita Dunn — who just happens to be the former Obama communications hit woman.”
Malkin continued, saying that the “vitriol” leveled at stay-at-home moms by Rosen, and by extension the Obama campaign, “is part of the strategy of the Democrats.”
“I think it actually is bad strategy,” said co-host Brian Kilmeade. “They started winning the female vote and now they’re insulting housewives across the country.”
“Of course, it is. But these leftist women cannot help themselves,” said Malkin. “This is a page from an old playbook. Hillary Clinton did it when she went after stay-at-home moms when they bake cookies and have tea. This happened in 2004 when Teresa Heinz Kerry disparaged Laura Bush and said that she had never had a, quote unquote, real job in her life. Although Laura Bush had worked both as a teacher and a librarian. And now you have Hillary Rosen echoing Hillary Clinton – these people don’t just have contempt for conservative, stay-at-home moms, they have contempt for all conservative moms. And, yes, it is going to backfire.”
“There are some stay-at-home moms who might vote Democrat too,” said co-host Gretchen Carlson. “That’s what is being missed in this entire discussion.” Carlson asked Malkin if she believed that Rosen got “marching orders” from the Obama administration on this because Obama campaign manager Jim Messina and campaign advisor David Axelrod both came out against Rosen’s statement nearly immediately on Twitter.
“I think that what these people have not expected, the White House and the Obama administration, is that the right and conservative activists on the line would push back the way we did,” said Malkin. “Thank goodness we have.”
The O-Team brought on the so-called ‘War On Women’ thinking this was a winning issue…now they’re eating it, big time!
War is hell…pay backs are a bitch! You wanted it, you got it! ‘Never Underestimate the Power of Conservative Women Scorned!‘
Add your two-cents ….I’m too busy laughing at the fools.
