What's Wrong With The Truth?

You would like to believe there were some boundaries in a political campaign. Like you are not going to attack the other guy's family. But if the guy trots out his wife as an expert on "women and the economy" isn't it fair to discuss the wife's credentials?

This Rosen woman is right, what the hell does Ann Romney know about women and the economy? Nothing. There's nothing wrong with saying she's never worked a day in her life and everyone knows what that means. Everybody knows the distinction between "working women" and women who stay home and take care of five kids, and nobody would say the women who stay home don't "work."

And I'll tell you what else is true, if you have $100 million you have the luxury of making certain decisions, like having more kids because you know your wife can stay home and take care of them. Why can't rich people just come out and say "yeah I'm rich" instead of trying to compare themselves to people who aren't rich? How many women are in Ann Romney's shoes, and have access to this kind of money and get to live how they want to live? There's hard work and then there's hard work in a mansion. Come on. What's wrong with calling a spade a spade?

You know what was hard work for the Romneys? Buying everything they ever wanted. It's only April and I'm all agitated.
There's likely to be more buzz Thursday about Democratic strategist and DNC adviser Hilary Rosen's accusation that Ann Romney has never worked.

"Guess what, his wife has actually never worked a day in her life," Rosen told CNN's Anderson Cooper on Wednesday evening during an interview about the "war on women."

Moments later, Ann Romney made her debut on Twitter: @AnnDRomney. Her first and only Tweet as of early Thursday morning: "I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work."

One of Rosen's responding Tweets @hilaryr: "Please know, I admire you. But your husband shouldn't say you are his expert on women and the economy."

There was bipartisan disapproval of Rosen's remark about Romney, including tweeted disapproval from President Barack Obama's campaign manager Jim Messina and top Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod.
