Last night on CNN, Democratic National Committee advisor Hilary Rosen disparaged Ann Romney, mother of five boys and an MS and cancer survivor, as having "never worked a day in her life." Forget the so-called "war on women" — Rosen just declared a "war on moms."
Really? We dare Rosen to say that to the face of any mom or dad who stays at home to raise their children.
In a sign of how brutally quick the Romney opposition research shop is going to be in the general election, within mere minutes of Rosen making the disparaging comments the push back began. Romney's operation, and a collective of conservative commentators, immediately called out Rosen's insult as an attack on stay-at-home moms.
They also began tying Rosen, incredibly effectively, to Obama's White House. While Democrats cried that Rush Limbaugh's comments on Sandra Fluke were representative of the Republican Party because Limbaugh was the "de facto head of the GOP," Rosen can actually be tied to the top of the Democrat Party without using such loose link connections.
Reports the Miami Herald:
Republicans note Rosen's a top Democratic insider. She was an adviser to the president during the ObamaCare debates. She visited the White House 35 times (27 times more than Gen. David Petraeus) between March 24, 2010 and Dec. 7, 2011.
If Democrats think they can distance themselves from someone who visited the White House 27 more times than the Director of the CIA, good luck.
In fact, Hilary Rosen has visited the White House more often, according to visitor logs, than Energy Secretary Steven Chu (16 times), Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki (19 times), or Defense Secretary Leon Panetta (12 times).
How many times did Rush Limbaugh visit RNC headquarters in the last year? Oh yeah, that's right….none.
Adding to this gratuitous Democrat assault on stay-at-home moms is the news yesterday that Obama pays women 18% less than men in his White House. As commenter guesswho also noted, Obama was found to have paid women nearly $6,000 less than men in his US Senate Office.
The real war on women is coming from Obama and upper level Democrats, folks.
As the Romney campaign has noted — and the Washington Post said "the numbers add up" — 92.3% of jobs lost since Obama took office have been jobs held by women.
So Obama is responsible for massive female job loss, a DNC advisor denigrates the women who do the hardest job in society, raising children, Obama pays women less in his White House and US Senate office, and it's Republicans who are leading the "war on women"?
We don't want to hear a single complaint from Democrats about their newfound lack of fortune. As Daily Mall Executive Editor Toby Harnden commented, Democrats are "reaping what they sowed. If Rush speaks for the GOP, Hilary Rosen speaks for Obama."
You made the bed, now lie in it.
