KissTheSky saidIt makes me mad to see the Dems cower in fear on issues where the public is already on their side.
Case in point: Mitt's wife claiming to be a "stay at home mom" is not comparable to middle or working class women in the same situation. If you have millions of dollars, countless servants and you're jetting between your multiple mansions around the country, and driving around in multiple Cadillacs, you don't get to be passing judgement on working people who are trying to make ends meet. It's offensive to see Mitt constantly dumping on people who actually work for a living.
Mitt has been part of the privileged class since the day he was born.
Mitt and his wife have enough leisure time to be hiring lobbyists for their $12 million beach house (another in their vast collection of who-knows how many mansions) and building elevators for their cars. This is not the kind of
"lifestyle" that regular Americans can relate to -- and have little patience for.
It is sickening to see this pampered and filthy rich couple -- who never had to work real jobs -- criticizing regular working Americans who are struggling to get by.
And it's sickening to see Fix "News" and the rest of the right-wing propaganda machine pushing this dishonest bullshit.
They've taken Hilary Rosen's comment about Ann Romney and twisted it and distorted it and are trying to say that Hilary Rosen attacked stay at home moms - when she did nothing of the kind.
She attacked Ann Romney - and Ann Romney is in no way representative of stay at home moms.
The right-wing propaganda machine will say ANYTHING to try to bullshit folks into voting Repub.
And this is just the latest example of that.
What's really disgusting is to see the arrogance and belligerence of the Romneys as they've claimed that their lives are as difficult and strained as the lives of most middle and lower income Americans.
If the Romneys really believe that - then they're out of touch with reality.
If they don't really believe it - and they understand how spoiled and fortunate they are - then they should show some humility and not be claiming that their lives are hard - when they actually lives lives of self indulgent luxury.
Not so long ago we Americans were hit by repeated statements from Ms Palin and her Baggers complaining about Obama being 'different from average Americans', 'not one of us', 'one of the elite', and he received an education 'regular people cannot afford' and ETC 'ad nauseum'. Yet with all these supposed Palin and her Baggers evidence, we didn't hear anywhere close to the out of touch statements from Obama, that are totally typical and so much a part of the Romney's daily reality, a reality that is nowhere close to average Americans. Hense this Elite Romney Family's total cluelessness as to how to come off as sensitive to what the common man faces. Romneys have absolutely no Idea how out of touch they are, because 'normal' American family life has never touched their reality.
Obama can show sensitivety effortlessly because 'normal' has touched his reality. Now these Hypocritical Palin Baggers have their 'elitist' man in hand as their man they choose to run the country to replace the 'elitist' Obama, What in hell are these damn christian fundi's thinking? "THEY DON'T KNOW SHIT FROM APPLE BUTTER" to use a southern slang and its damn disgusting to even think about this voting block's utter stupidity
When I was a child in the 50's and early sixties, my mother stayed home to take care of her 3 boys. while dad worked at 'Kawneer Door Company', She did all our laundry, including the cloth diapers (there were no such thing as throw away diapers). Mom baked, cooked, canned dozens and dozens of bottles, of peaches, pears, tomatoes, mixed vegetables and tomato juice as well as grape juice and etc. All to save money and so we were able to eat healthfully. If she got together with other women they trading recipes and canning, cooking and baking secrets.
Does anyone really think that Romney's wife has any idea of what a work at home mother goes through, who does her best to reduce costs to make ends meet because it is a necessity ? There's not a thing wrong with a woman working like this at home, it is noble. What isn't noble is the Romney's hypocrisy and total cluelessness in trying to come off as something they aren't, which is anywhere close to a normal average American family who struggles to make ends meet. They would be far better off to just keep their mouths shut, than to embarass themselves as they do when trying to be something they just simply are not.
