“Never worked a day in her life”

You may be sure this was focus grouped to death: Ann Romney “has never worked a day in her life.”

The most incompetent President in history, with no second term agenda, has nothing else to run on but the politics of division and class war. This is the first major offensive (in many senses of the word) in what will be a continuing attempt to portray Romney as out of touch with the needs of people generally and women in particular.

Meanwhile, Michelle Obama, as I recall, had a PR job at some extravagant salary while her husband was a US Senator which, to the surprise of no one, was left unfilled by anyone else after she became first lady.

The one very good part of this, however, is that it is this more than anything that is likely to rile Mitt Romney. If Obama was looking for an opponent who will go in for the kill as best he can, this is the way to have done it.

    And Michelle Odumbo collecting 300G a year by being married the to the Kenyan sitting on a hospital board has worked? Please.

    Obama really is a low, immoral, hateful person.

    “Never worked a day in her life”

    Oh I see. So a woman who has five children and is a stay-at-home mum, works 24/7 to raise those kids, has “never worked”.

    Why does Obama hate women?

    “Never worked a day in her life”

    Neither has the Sun King and Hulkzilla.

  5. Gab

    “Homemaker” is listed as an occupation on many many forms. Obama campaign has alienated how many stay-at-home mums?

    Keep talking lefties..

  6. Fisky

    The Left have spent years calling housework “unpaid labour”, demanding it be calculated in GDP so that the stay-at-home mums’ contributions are “recognised”. Now we know it was all a lie.

    Very easy pickings for Romney here. Let them run with it for a few days (encourage them through back channels if possible), and then go hard on the “Democrats think housewives are lazy” meme.

  7. Infidel Tiger

    Instapundit smacks down this dumb broad:

    Hillary Rosen — longtime paid shill for the recording industry’s efforts to seize control of your computer — has never done a day’s honest work in her life. That’s more truthful than what she says about Ann Romney . . . .

    UPDATE: Reader Ignatz Kant writes: “Ann Romney raised 5 children, fought multiple-sclerosis and beat cancer. Rosen just fired the first volley in the Democrat’s war on stay-at-home moms.”

    When John Edwards pretended to stick by his wife with cancer, the media made a big deal out of it. When Mitt Romney actually did it, it was a nonstory. Keep rockin’!

    I think this indicates the Kenyan camp may feel they are in trouble. It seems to be a call to the single woman or working woman demographic to hate Anna Romney as they may be seeing some of that support peeling away.

    It’s a very risky, almost irrational attack which suggests trouble in the Kenyan camp.

  9. Bill

    Expect Hillary Rosen to soon disappear from the DNC payroll. Great way to seriously annoy about a quarter of US female voters!!

    How stupid can a Lefty get?

  10. Bill

    Is it really a Kenyan plan though? Peak Stupid can be spontaneous.

    How stupid can a Lefty get?

    By their words it shall be known.

  12. adrian

    Pretty disgusting. What would Obama suggest that parents should always stick their kids in state-endorsed child care centres paid for by tax-payers and businesses?

    Quick someone call the Police….Obama’s stolen the ALP Handbook!!!!

  16. Samuel J

    I’m not sure about being the worst president in history (what about William Henry Harrison or James Buchanan?), but slandering the opponent’s wife reminds me of the infarmous 1828 election between John Quincy Adams (the incumbent) and Andrew Jackson. That is considered the dirtiest election in US history – I hope that Obama’s slander of Anne Romney is not a harbinger of another extremely dirty presidential election.

  17. This reminds me in part of the just awful comments made about Jeanette Howard. I remember one very prominent female journalist demanding that Mrs Howard submit to an interview to tell all about her bout with cancer….there was also the bitchy journo who made a joke about Mrs H making some of her own clothes.

  18. tbh

    God these people are morons. You attack the spouse of a candidate, that’s mistake number one. Then you attack someone who has no history of scandal, someone who has raised several kids and has battled serious illness. That’ll play well in the electorate, yessireee.

    Idiots.

    sinc you snivelling litle *#&#, am I still banned? still publishing that racist scum JC? calling obama a kenyan?!?! you serious.

    [Yep - you're still banned. You show no sign of modifying the behaviour that generated the ban in the first instance. Sinc]

    The Romneys reply:

    Two hours later, Ann Romney debuted a new Twitter account, @AnnDRomney, and wrote: “I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work.”

    One of the Romneys’ sons, Josh, tweeted: “@AnnDRomney is one of the smartest, hardest working woman (sic) I know. Could have done anything with her life, chose to raise me.”

  21. Token

    Oh my, how daft is this. Get out the Memory Hole again.

    This is going to distract from the race baiting & class warfare distractions the Sun King’s administration has been working at for months.

    [I have no interest in a long debate or exchange of emails with you. Your trolling derails threads. You can be a rude as you like to jc but don't derail the threads. Simple really. Sinc]

    Having just watched the video, I am stunned.

    What stupid, arrogant idiots.

    Next up, “Mittens just doesn’t see blacks as equal.”

  24. wm is censored

    derailing? lololol so a dissenting view is called derailing? so it wasn’t the “rudeness” after all. I thought so.

    anyway, instead of debating me, your commenters abuse me, and I get banned?!?! sheesh.

    wow sinc, I thought you were the real deal. you let me down. your like the rest of them, ban the dissenting view. boring

  25. JimBeamer5

    Remember this woman is a lesbian. Those lesbians of the left (majority I suppose) despise everything that a “normal stay at home mum” represents. Here’s one for you Hilary. Hilary Rosen has never been to the gym in her life. Hilary Rosen has never walked past a McDonalds in her life etc etc.

  26. Carpe Jugulum

    wow sinc, I thought you were the real deal. you let me down. your like the rest of them, ban the dissenting view. boring

    Don’t worry wm, i think you are very well balanced, you have a chip on both shoulders.

    BTW Ogabe’s dad was a Kenyan so i will invoke the Heiss (et al) law and say yes he can be called a Kenyan. After all he has ‘self identified’ with his heritage when he visited Kenya.

  27. twostix

    Pretty disgusting. What would Obama suggest that parents should always stick their kids in state-endorsed child care centres paid for by tax-payers and businesses?

    Yes.

    Welcome to the State Of The Left and child rearing circa 2012.

    It’s not “child care” any more by the way it’s “Early Learning” or “school” as I’ve heard it called by some acquaintances who have their three year old there 5 days a week.

    Expect it to become compulsory in the next ten – twenty years.

  28. wm is censored

    oh cmon. Forget the politics. is she right or wrong?

    I think she makes a good point. this Romney lady has an education (maybe?) and hasn’t worked a day in her life. A bit like those lefty academics, union reps you so loooovvvveeeee…

    so what the problem here again people?

    why should anyone ignore ALL so called leftie academics but take her view on anything but breeding and cooking seriously?

  29. Mark

    The most incompetent President in history, with no second term agenda, has nothing else to run on but the politics of division and class war.

    Sounding awfully familiar.

    You must wonder how they actually thought this would help. “Ok guys let’s all pick on the mother of 5 that has beaten cancer and isn’t running for office”.

    Still a war on mums is better than talking about Obama’s record any day of the week if you are Dem.

    It is like Queensland all over and will be like the whatever incarnation of Julia we are up to turns up in 2013.

  30. JC

    sinc you snivelling litle *#&#, am I still banned? still publishing that racist scum JC? calling obama a kenyan?!?! you serious.

    Hahahahhahaha So being 1/2 Kenyan is a wacist term now? Odumbo is 1/2 Kenyan you moron.

    (For those that don’t understand, it’s just a play about those that think he wasn’t born in the US, that’s all)

    Wm, you little leftwing maggot, you have a slight problem here. While I’m correctly referring to the Kenyan’s ethnic background, Bolt was dragged into court for ignoring the light skinned 9. You fucking morons need to get your stories straight here.

    Another leftie drops the dummy. It’s one a day now one average.

    And stop emailing sinc by emailing Sinc, you stalking little clown.

  31. Carpe Jugulum

    ALL so called leftie academics but take her view on anything but breeding and cooking seriously?

    I’m betting you havn’t had a wife that raised children while hubby was away. Think of soldiers sailors & airmen who have been deployed or a hubby that is putting in the hard hours so mum can raise the kids. And i find all leftist academics are people who must sit down to pee – even the females.

  32. twostix

    why should anyone ignore ALL so called leftie academics but take her view on anything but breeding and cooking seriously?

    I like the way that the left with sneering contempt refer to family and having children as “breeding” and mothers (with the rather mysogynist term) as “breeders” now.

    The Australian left also genuinely wonder why they’re hated and about to lose government in every level of government in the country.

  33. Note to Obambi: it’s MITT who is your opponent, you misogynist clown.

  34. dover_beach

    why should anyone ignore ALL so called leftie academics but take her view on anything but breeding and cooking seriously?

    Has she offered her opinion on anything, jackass?

  35. Oh come on

    Is this the first misstep in one of the most incompetent Presidential election campaigns ever?

    I’ve always said Obama’s not an especially good campaigner, and his team haven’t proven themselves to be that hot, either. No reason to expect Team Obama are going to be formidable opponents.

    But maybe they’re going to be worse than expected, if this is anything to go by.

  36. C.L.

    Nothing at Wiki on Hilary Rosen being married or having children.

    Another uppity lezo?

  37. C.L.

    Remember this woman is a lesbian.

    LOL. Should have read the thread. Thanks, Jim.

  38. Tal

    Try raising twin boys( bastards) that set fire to everything in sight it’s hard work

  39. “Neither has the Sun King and Hulkzilla First Wookie.”

    FIFY, IT.

  40. boy on a bike

    Perhaps these idiots should study the resume of a previous first lady – Rosalynn Carter.

    The couple had four children: John William “Jack” (born 1947), James Earl “Chip” III (born 1950), Donnel Jeffrey “Jeff” (born 1952), and Amy Lynn (born 1967). The first three were born in different parts of the country and away from Georgia, due to her husband’s military duties.

    In 1953, after her husband left the Navy, Carter helped him to run the family peanut farm and warehouse business, handling accounting responsibilities. Since 1962, the year her husband Jimmy was elected to the Georgia State Senate, she has been active in the political arena.

    I wouldn’t call that “never worked a day in her life”. In fact, I’d say that raising four kids and helping to run a farm and supporting the political and military career of Jimmy would have made her a very busy lady indeed. But it looks like she never had paid employment outside the family business, so Odumbo will have to tar her with the same brush too.

  41. Bill

    What are going to do when the guy who has seen the GDP rise 9 % during his presidency (2nd most ever), wins the election?

    You sound just like all the dolts who proclaimed the world was going to end when GWB won his re-election. You guys, and those folks, are spreading the division and hate way more than any of the politicians you dislike.

    And that comment by Rosen was disgusting, just like many comments about Michelle Obama.

  42. C.L.

    WaPo poll asks:

    Was Hilary Rosen out of line with her comments that Ann Romney “has never worked a day in her life?

    Yes: 96 percent.
    No: 4 percent.

    So a great start to the campaign for Obama.

  43. C.L.

    Washington Examiner:

    Rosen in 2008: Attacks on Michelle Obama ‘stupid’.

    A total disaster:

    Democrats were quick to insist that Rosen has no role at the White House, but Jim Geraghty reports that the rebuttal seems to be more of an issue of semantics:

    White House visitor logs indicate that “Hilary Rosen” visited the White House thirty-five times.

    Gen. David Petraeus, head of our efforts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the current CIA director, nine times.

    35 plays 9.

    That’s the Obama administration in a nutshell.

  44. Bill

    Nice one!!Thats the most revealing statistic since the Queensland election.

  45. Myrddin Seren

    The O seems to have some issue with females – all the apparent spine and venom in his administration are women.

    If the Amazons have decided to go after home-duty moms – it’s because they don’t care and he hasn’t the clue or cojones to rein the Amazons in.

    Wonder how Reggie, the former First Body Man, is getting on these days ?
