I just watched the clip of Hilary Rosen, a democratic advisor, speaking about how Ann Romney, Mitt Romney’s wife, is a stay at home mom, has never worked a day in her life and doesn’t have the credibility to advise her husband on economic issues. Really? I think Hilary Rosen just made Mrs. Romney really relatable.
I’m a stay at home mom, having chosen not to get a full time job so I can be with my kids. I work 24/7 a day, pay the bills, manage all our family accounting, do all our shopping, and started Intent. And, yes, I too would say I came from a background of privilege, but I was taught that you had to study and work hard to get ahead in life no matter who you are and where you came from. I would guess the Romney’s feel the same way deep down inside since they have entered politics.
My mom, a stay at home mom, is the most hard working person I know, and she knows more about the economy than my dad!
I am a Democrat and completely support President Obama, but Hilary Rosen was wrong, and I am happy to see that people are criticizing her political statement. Kudos to Michelle Obama for tweeting:
Ann Romney raised 5 sons! My guess is Hilary Rosen just gave Ann Romney a rallying cry and we will be seeing her use it a lot on the campaign trail!
