LOL. These Republicans are so transparent we could see right through them.
Republicans are now trying to manufacture a political crisis using stay-at-home-moms and the words of Democratic Strategist Hilary Rosen. Ms Rosen said on CNN that Ann Romney – wife of Mitt Romney – “did not work a day in her life” and that she did not face the same economic hardships many women face today.
This prompted Ann Romney to take to Twitter, tweeting “I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work.”
Although the words of Hilary could have been said differently, her words are true. But since a recent poll showed that women are heavily in favor of President Obama over his Republican challenger Mitt Romney, Republicans think this issue will gain them favor with women.
Their hope is that women will forget the last 3 years when Republican governors throughout the nation engaged in a war on women – taking away women’s health care, attacking women’s right to choose, ending their equal pay for equal work and blocking legislations in congress meant to protect violence against women. Yes, Congressional Republicans have been blocking the Violence Against Women Act!
With all that in mind, Republicans are trying to pretend that they are for women’s rights and they are doing it by trying to paint Democrats as being against stay-at-home-moms. They are calling this attack the Democrat’s war on stay-at-home-moms, and they are claiming that Democrats think stay-at-home-mom’s don’t work.
But as it turns out, Mitt Romney is the one insinuating that Stay-at-home-moms don’t work. In the video below, Romney is heard saying that in today’s economy, households need two incomes to succeed. And listening to Romney, it sounds as if he is saying that what stay-at-home-moms do, is not work.
Take a look at what Mitt Romney said in 1994 – “this is a different world than it was in the 1960s when I was growing up. When you used to be able to have mom at home and dad at work. Now mom and dad both have to work.”
