I'm pretty sure that Hilary Rosen should probably keep her mouth shut. From what I can gather, she's a long time lobbyist which isn't exactly a value creating profession. Additionally, the most noteworthy thing about her seems to be that she was the head of the RIAA at the time that the Digital Millienium Copyright Act was passed.

In terms of optics, I'm also not sure that having a prominent lesbian trying to score points for you with regard to the concerns of women in our society is a long term winner.

Jane (where is Jon Corzine?)

Apparently the Obama campaign is waging a war on women.

Stop getting pregnant before you get married liberals. Trust me, it will improve your options.

MarkO

Did she not realize that she was actually speaking about Obama when she said "not worked a day"?

You can expect the worst from this crew.

matt

It was interesting that Drudge posted an article quoting the president:

"Speaking Friday at what the administration called “The White House Forum on Women and the Economy,” President Barack Obama said that after his two daughters were born, he and his wife—both Harvard Law School graduates—could not afford the “luxury” of having her stay home with the children."

And suddenly one of his legion of low life minions comes spouting off about Ann Romney.

Coincidence, think I not.

Ouch, don't tick off Scott Beauchamp's significant other

Coincidence, think I not.

Absolutely not. Just like the race war, this stuff has all been planned. And since Rosen is a lesbian you better not criticize her or you hate the gays.

dublindave

"Apparently the Obama campaign is waging a war on women."

It unfold this way;exchanges get more heated forcing Obama to step in and ask for cooler heads to prevail,reiterate the family off-bounds and decry the idiotic election cycle thus demonstrating to independants he's "above it all".Segue for O to talk about his adminstrations committment to women,such as Ann Romney....their economic worries,health concerns etc-AGAIN.

The More Obama talks about women the more we score.Let the pundits note that Ann romney supports striking 20 million women from the ACA,that's 20 million women without access to health insurance maybe it's a good thing she did stay at home.She also supports defunding planned parenthood-how many women will develope breast cancer because they don't have access to early detection?Bring up the contraception meme....hit the ed pages,the talk shows,keep the conversation going.

Conservatives want to shine a pocket torch on Obama administration's 'war on women' while a giant super trooper spotlight melts their skin.

I like it.

Also,excellent time to ask if Mitt's still consulting Ann to find out about women and their concerns?

'those pesky ladies,ya know,I just don't understand them.If their not crying at some Halmark movie their angry cause it's their "special time of the month".Ah Jeese I tell ya,they're an alien species.But they sure do make a nice pot roast'

Speaking of working girls...

Great evening in India tonight for the IPL 20/20 Cricket League.

Just saw an extremely exciting match where the Chennai Yellow Banana's beat the Bangalore Royal Challengers 208 to 205 in 20/20 Overs. Came down to the last bowl of the contest, but the final Yellow batter stroked the bowl over his left shoulder where it dribbled just past the outstretched fingers of a Bangalore defender and bounced over the rope for a magnificent 4 runs and an explosion of jubilation by the oppositions Chennai Bananette's! My Bangalore bartenders were bummed to the max, but not me, because I was waiting for...

Tonights late evening contest between some Blue guys (probably Bombay) and the Punjabi Kings XI, owned by the Bollywood actress gal I am a complete sucker for, Priety Zinta Yowza!

Anyhow, every Innings TV India does a quick shot of her Punjabi Cheerleaders. On TV the Blue guys just flied out to Bikal Sherma of Punjabi, woefully blowing their 5th Wicket, (77-5 at 12.3 Overs) which is terrific because the camara focuses on Priety cheering in the grandstands.

Woman's work I suppose, but somebody's got to do it. Go Ann Romney!

BTW, the Blue guys are the Puna Warriors, not the Bombay whatever they ares.

MTF

Apple pie is just as un-American as Moms. Just ask Hilary Rosen. This is what the President is reduced to saying, given his miserable record.

narciso

As I pointed out earlier, Rosen is part of SD Knickerbocker, which is running Fluke, and
flacking 'Game Change' two fronts ion the Administration's public relations campaign,

Rob Crawford

Is my point that she is inconsistent as well as stupid?

False dilemma.

Janet

In that clip at Daily Caller that narciso linked (11:25) - Rosen says that it is the Republicans using the "war on women" line.
That is an absolute lie. I sat in a waiting room & listened to MSNBC go on & on & on & on with that line. It scrolled across the TV screen over & over.
I don't know how anyone can be a Democrat...what a pack of liars.

Comanche Voter

Inconsistent, stupid, and not well acquainted with the truth. The perfect Democrat operative--willing to go lay it on the line for the Party--and if the operation fails, ready to get thrown under the bus.

dublindave

As long as Dems don't bring up Ann Romeny's past drug abuse problem we'll be fine.

Captain Hate

Even Axelrod and Messina have disowned this fat carpet munch.

Bruce

The other way that I think they will be able to attack, and her husband, is through their (esp. her) riding. Some have complained how elitist the Obamas are and have been, in his golf and her vacations. But riding, as the Romneys do, is far more exclusive. The only thing that I can think of that is as bad maybe is sailing.

The big problem is the price of the horses, not that the rest of the stuff doesn't add up. A GF is into it, and talks about all the quarter million, on up, horses that she is competing against. Her horses are in the $40-$50k range, and spends more on them than on herself. She bred the mare a couple of years ago, for about half the value of the horse, and lost the colt when he was about a year old. Had to go to Europe to get the sperm, after a long vetting process. That sort of thing.

Making it worse for Mitt Romney, the sport is heavily female, with a lot of the guys who are serious riders apparently being gay. If the Romneys had stuck with just riding the horses, like Reagan, and I think GW Bush, did, western style, they would have been fine. But, Ann Romney is into Dressage, which is, unfortunately for her, a French word commonly translated as "training". At least serious sailing is manly.

PaulV

Axelrod and Messina merely responded to Ann Romney effective twit.

narciso

Brainslug, chews through the cerebellum and then madness ensues.

Captain Hate

David Axelrod, Obama’s closest adviser, tweeted: “Also Disappointed in Hilary Rosen’s comments about Ann Romney. They were inappropriate and offensive.” Jim Messina, who runs the Obama 2012 campaign, demanded an apology from Rosen: “I could not disagree with Hilary Rosen any more strongly. Her comments were wrong and family should be off limits. She should apologize.”

Rob Crawford

Anyone know for sure if Obama's back on cocaine? He's reportedly been losing weight, so, you know...

Chubby

Rush is saying she is an operative, in close contact with the Obama campaign, assisted with the Fluke junk and frequently visits the W-H, so Axelrod's distancing is phoney

Rob Crawford

Bruce -- while I wouldn't be shocked if the Romney's use English saddles, any complaints about their horse riding should be met with pictures of Reagan on horseback.

Do people wear helmets on horseback? While it seems like the modern nanny-state thing to do, I can't recall seeing it. If the Romneys are so daring as to ride without helmets, then contrast them atop the half-ton horse to Obama on a 30lb girl's bike with his pink helmet.

Janet

The other way that I think they will be able to attack, and her husband, is through their (esp. her) riding.

Good Lord. That'll turn me into a Romney backer! The whole primary season I've pretty much just defended whoever was being beaten up the worst at the moment...never had a big favorite. Picking on the family because they ride horses will make me forget he's not conservative enough for me.

dublindave

I think Rosen's comment was fair;what does a multi-zilionaire know about the struggles faced by normal every-day women.Bacause Rosen was sensitive and din't push the "rich cow" line she eneded up sounding like she was barating stay at home homes.

Look,of course Ann romeny has no problem striking 20 million women off affrodable health care,she's super rich,it wont effect her.


But all the other women,her sisters?Fk you!

Of course Ann romney has no problem defunding an organisation that plays a vital role in womens health.She's can get private care in Vienna,do a bit of shopping and be back in time for tea in Salt lake city if she so wishes.

All the women who want have access to breast exams?Fk you!

dublindave

sorry...stay at home moms

Jane (where is Jon Corzine?)

Michelle Obama has now responded to Hillary's comments. I think dear Hillary has just highlighted how anti-women Obama is - well that and the fact that Obama pays women who work for him less then men. But pat them on the head and give them free contraception and it will be okay.

Obama is relying on women being dumb as plugs. That will work with dems (because they are)but not with independents.

narciso

That's very silly 'Cue Zombie Graham Chapman'

Porchlight

Look,of course Ann romeny has no problem striking 20 million women off affrodable health care,she's super rich,it wont effect her.

Did it effect [sic] Michelle Obama when she was paid upwards of $300k/year to concoct patient dumping schemes (with Axelrod) for the University of Chicago Medical Center?

Did we hear about any of that in 2008 from the likes of Rosen?

Of course not.

Captain Hate

Because Terezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzza Heinz "Lovey" Kerry was such a salt of the earth woman.

Of course Ann romney has no problem defunding an organisation that plays a vital role in womens health

Planned Abortionhood? Oh noes. How do so many women live without it?

OldTimer

Jealousy and envy are most unlovely traits, and these characteristics are always front and center in the thoughts and actions of libs.
Pity.

dublindave

Ya know i'd love to see slow mo video of Ann romney sailing,horse back riding,eating cavier while drinking champagne and then juxtapose that with pictures of factories mitt closed down to pay for Ann's lavish lifestyle.Let the last image that now famous tableu of Mitt standing with his pockets stuffed with cash and a tagline;"He used to stuff his pockets full of cash...........now..........he stuffs secret accounts in the Cayman islands.

Mitt Romeny;the swiss bank account candidate.

Mitt Romeny;don't let him strap America's future to the roof of his car.

Threadkiller

"You know essentially, you've taken on sort of the most sympathetic person in the candidate's realm, the wife, who is taking care of the children, supporting the husband, doing everything she can because she loves him. Michelle Obama is a pretty terrific woman I have to say, and I think that attacking her is a dumb strategy on the Republican's part."

-- Democratic strategist Hillary Rosen, quoted by the Washington Examiner, on CNN on May 19, 2008.

Rob Crawford

CH -- I do have to wonder: which organization provided more medical care to needy women last year, Planned Parenthood or the Catholic Church.

Which saved more lives?

Captain Hate

RC, I know which did more mammograms.

Chubby

((Did it effect [sic] Michelle Obama when she was paid upwards of $300k/year to concoct patient dumping schemes (with Axelrod) for the University of Chicago Medical Center? ))

plus only she got the job only because of Obama's political connections

without Obama's political coattails, where would she be, careerwise?

so many of these so called feminist successful career women ride on their hubby's coattails

dublindave

Look,i'm not discussing Ann Romeny's past drug abuse problem.I'll go anywhere but that's below the belt.It was for a brief perios in 1976-things were different,let it go Righties,o.k?

Yep. H R Clinton another one.

cue soft pinao music-Ann romney riding her horse and gigling in slow mation-VO unidentified women talking about the struggle to put food on the table after mitt romeny closed her factory-cue Ann sailing drinking champagne-women continues to talk about not having money for health care and contracting breast cancer-CUE Ann romney talking about repealing ACA and planned parenthood-unidendified womens voice.."I just hope I make it through" followed by writing explaining how she died two weeks before ACA was signed into law.

Finish with Ann romney laughing obnoxiosy.

And which delivered more live babies.

Extraneus

That's a funny thing to contemplate. We should probably have a contest.

Captain Hate

Well Porch, they also hated that she didn't stay home with Trig, whom she should have aborted in their views. So it's pretty hard figuring out their Moebius strip worldview.

narciso

It's not an accident that they also flacked 'Game Change' or as I like to call it 'Julianne's bender'

Rob Crawford

The funniest thing about this (and future) clumsy attacks is that the left doesn't have an idea what they're actually accomplishing.

Captain Hate

And which delivered more live babies.

And that troubling correlation between abortion and breast cancer, the disease the trolls claim to care about. It could be a spurious correlation not meaning anything, like CO2 and global warming climate change; you never know because you'd have to be an ascientific dumbass to say something like the science is settled.

Captain Hate

'Julianne's bender'

She's probably larding it up because she can't find any roles that she can play as naturally as Amber Waves.

Janet

Anchoress has a wonderful post on this. Super good.

GMAX

Hilary Rosne looks and sounds like a disgusting piece of work. Go away.

MarkO

But, does Hillary Rosen need free contraception?

Captain Hate

Tammy Bruce is slattering El JEFe's minions projection of his hatred of Stanley Ann on to Ann Romney.

narciso

Not to mention, haven't the death panels discouraged breast cancer screenings,

Jim Ryan

I prefer Michelle as FLOTUS. Because Ann Romney never did a day of make-work in her life.

centralcal

Oh, the lefties have to be so careful about slinging mud at Ann R., because Her Excellency Michelle Obama is even more vulnerable - both in her current behavior as FLOTUS and before.

Over at Pundit & Pundette, they remind us of this 2007 Vogue piece:

Then, too, there is that little-discussed fact that staying home with children can be—how else to put it?—less than intellectually stimulating. "The days I stay home with my kids without going out, I start to get ill," she says. "My head starts to ache." When she mentioned it to her mother, Marian Robinson told her daughter she didn't think Michelle could handle the boredom of staying home with kids. Obama was surprised to hear that taking care of her had been boring, but now she embraces the idea of discussing it openly.

The days she is stuck at home with her kids make her ill. Could explain her need for so many vacays?

Extraneus

My favorite part of the story:

“Once I was in the state legislature, I was teaching, I was practicing law, I'd be traveling,” he said. “And we didn't have the luxury for her not to work."
Ha. How many people can relate to that statement? Can the number be greater than zero?
Porchlight

Liberalthink, 2008 campaign edition:

"Sarah Palin has young children! She should stay home with them! Especially the retarded one which she should have aborted in the first place!"

"Michelle Obama is a high-powered attorney! She acknowledges that little-discussed fact that all mothers understand that staying home with children makes one ill!"

Ah the gals at the Spew, surprisingly split with Behar being herself but Whoopi and Liz

Captain Hate

Wow, I'm listening to an interview with Ann Romney (from a tv show) on Tammy Bruce and her response to Hilary Rosen is one of the most effective endorsements of Mitt I've heard to date. Rosen's comment was a gaffe of huge proportions.

Ignatz

Her mother apparently did.

Jane (where is Jon Corzine?)

Hillary has now apologized to Ann and demanded an end to the war on women - which of course Obama started and she added fuel.

Tis a lovely backfire. Hillary is a strident shrew and Ann is a brilliant and lovely survivor. I expect the women's vote is about to take a turn for the better.

Not only that, Jane, she 'apologized' by saying words were "poorly chosen". Meaning that she wishes she could've expressed her contempt more subtly, but her target audience is to stupid to understand.

I once knew a lot about Hillary Rosen (she replaced a friend of mine in a job and it was a bit underhanded as I recall) but for the life of me my brain has expired.

narciso

She was a big honcho in the RIAA, and subsequently Washington editor and political director for the Huff Po, during the election,

Jane (where is Jon Corzine?)

The plot thickens:

It is likely that someone at the Internal Revenue Service illegally leaked confidential donor information showing a contribution from Mitt Romney’s political action committee to the National Organization for Marriage, says the group.

In a letter exclusively obtained by The Daily Caller, the organization has asked the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration to “investigate and learn the source of the breach and prosecute those responsible to the fullest extent of the law.” It also provided evidence suggesting the leak might have been the result of “IRS employee misconduct.”

The dispute stems from a March 30 post on the pro-gay Human Rights Campaign’s (HRC) website, which boasted that it had obtained documents revealing that Mitt Romney “donated $10,000 to the National Organization for Marriage [NOM] in 2008 …”

Hillary Rosen once headed the Human Rights campaign as did her ex-partner.

Someone needs to go to jail.

dublindave

"Tis a lovely backfire. Hillary is a strident shrew and Ann is a brilliant and lovely survivor. I expect the women's vote is about to take a turn for the better."

Damn!She's right!

Bruce

But, does Hillary Rosen need free contraception?

Likely not - try Googling "Hillary Rosen lesbian", and from that it appears that she doesn't have a pressing need for contraception.

That little factoid is not being made all that obvious right now - because I think that it would not go over all too well if it were well known that the Obama campaign's front person in this were a lesbian - though it does appear that she is raising twins. Something like that. In any case, not really someone you want to be attacking women who stay at home to raise kids, someone from a militant segment of society who don't have husbands, and mostly don't have kids, because, well, they want to have sex with women instead.

BTW - not saying anything is wrong with lesbianism, but rather, am commenting on the optics of having a lesbian being the front person here.

Captain Hate

And, prior to this, I sorta liked lesbians.

Tammy Bruce has been on an hour and a half tirade on her. More than once she's exhibited disgust with her fellow same sexers who care so little about their appearance that they look like ambulatory septic tanks.

Something I didn't know until now . . . Ann Romney not only raised five kids, she is a breast cancer survivor and she has MS.

Please, please, Dems, take dublindave's advice and run a bunch of attack ads targeting Ann.

I have to say I'm pleased at how team Romney came back swinging at that hanging curve ball the Obama campaign just threw them. McCain wouldn't have, so I have me some hopes that Romney might prove to be a tougher and better campaigner than I've been giving him credit for.

Porchlight

Yes, derwill, it is encouraging. And I'm sure most Americans don't yet know those things about Ann Romney, but they will learn. Unfortunately that won't stop the haters from hating, for the most part.

dublindave

"Please, please, Dems, take dublindave's advice and run a bunch of attack ads targeting Ann."

I believe there are really smart Republicans looking around at this wave of insanity that has engulfed their party,wondering where it all went wrong.

I have no problem running ads against a breast cancer survivor who wants to close down a women's health organisation that provides 800,000 breast cancer screenings per year.

Jesus Christ,you really have to be a cold hearted skank, or a Republican woman, to have that much contempt for your own gender.


Jane (where is Jon Corzine?)

I'm listening to Howie Carr. A caller just said he transported Ann Romney's horse to Fl - that's his job. So he was unloading the horse and shoveling hay and getting stuff ready and some woman was there working harder than he was shoveling hay etc. He finally asked if she was Ann Romney and she said he was.

He then said, typically he brought horses to people who snickered at him, and didn't lift a finger to help him, particularly snot nose teenagers who support Obama.

Rosen gives the standard apology. See LUN.

I'm trying not to get my hopes up. But this is the Romney machine that went toe to toe with Bill Bulger and his crew, not the one that tanked against the Kennedy clan in 1994.

This campaign is going to be a lot like the first Tyson-Holyfield fight. Tyson was stunned that his bullying was met by an even more bullying Holyfield. The Obama campaign is going full Tyson, so the Romney campaign is going to have to be in full Holyfield mode.
