Man May Work from Sun to Sun — But Woman’s Work is Never Done!

I almost died laughing when Democrats started distancing themselves on many Sunday morning talk shows from CNN’s Democrat Hit Woman Hilary Rosen’s inflammatory comments on Ann Romney, wife of Republican front-runner Mitt Romney. Even President Obama and many of his henchmen jumped in the fray and tried to distance themselves by stating that Ms. Rosen works for CNN and is not a spokesperson for the White House. Though trying hard to distance their hides from this unleashed attack dog, Hilary Rose, from CNN, White House visitor logs show that Hilary Rosen visited 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. at least 35 times, while Gen. David Petraeus, head of our efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the current CIA director has been a visitor only nine times.
Here in a nutshell are CNN Hilary Rosen’s comments on Ann Romney: "What you have is Mitt Romney running around the country, saying, 'Well, you know, my wife tells me that what women really care about are economic issues, and when I listen to my wife, that's what I'm hearing.' Guess what? His wife has actually never worked a day in her life!" What Rosen failed to mention in her unsavory comments is that under Obama’s watch, women have a higher number as being unemployed and many are unable to find work.
Rosen further stated that Ann Romney never really dealt with the kinds of economic issues that a majority of the women in this country are facing in terms of how do we feed our kids, how do we send them to school, and why do we worry about their future. She added that the Romney’s “just seem old fashioned when it comes to women.” I guess she meant that rich moms don’t have the same cares for their families than poor or working moms have, which to me is ridiculous!
Days later when bipartisan critics unleashed a barrage of verbal assaults on her comments, Rosen sheepishly apologized to Mrs. Romney. The spineless liberal hack said, “I apologize to Ann Romney and anyone else who was offended. Let’s declare peace in this phony war and go back to focus on the substance.
What I find so disingenuous about most liberal Democrats trying to portray themselves as poor and for the poor is that according to the Center for Responsive Politics, there are 237 millionaires serving in Congress. Which reflects the fact that the average lawmaker is far wealthier that his or her typical constituent. Simply stating, one percent of Americans are millionaires, while 44 percent of those serving in Congress can claim as much. In the Senate’s 25 wealthiest lawmakers, 14 are Democrats and 11 are Republicans.
The richest member of Congress is Rep. Darrell Issa–R – CA ($250 million), followed by four Democrats, Jane Harman–D – CA – ($245 million), Herb Kohl–D – WI ($215 million), Mark Warner–D – VA ($210 million) and John Kerry–D – MA ($209 million). By the way, Mitt Romney’s net worth is estimated at $200 million. I now wonder if CNN’s Hilary Rosen despises and scorns the supposedly rich wives of those rich Democrats as she did Mrs. Romney who raised 5 sons and was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1998 and has battled breast cancer.
Unlike Ms. Rosen, I have the utmost respect for mothers of all stripes: rich, poor, middle income, black, white, brown, etc. Most moms in my view are the central figure of most families. Growing up poor, I remember my mom having to go work to help my dad with his meager wage. Yet, she washed our clothes in a No. 8 washtub outside with a scrub board, hung the wash, iron, cook 3 meals, and go buy groceries on foot being that we never owned a car. Other moms in my poor neighborhood who had husbands that earned a good wage also worked hard raising their kids. As I stated in my heading, their work was never done.
As for rich moms not having it hard raising their children as poor ones, I wonder what ugly words Ms. Rosen would have written about Rose Kennedy, the wife of Joe Kennedy, an extremely wealthy man and mother of 9 children with two sons, both Democrats, who suffered tragic endings. Probably unbeknown to Ms. Rosen, Rose Kennedy give birth to a mentally ill girl, her oldest son, Joe was killed in World War II and her two sons, Robert and President John Kennedy were assassinated. Could Ms. Rosen honestly believe that a rich mother like Rose Kennedy could not related to the hardships a poor mother would have endured if they, like her, had children who underwent similar tragic and heartbreaking events in their family?
Folks, I personally know several wealthy women. One such wealthy woman never seems to end to amaze me. Her name is Hope Garcia Lancarte. Hope, along with her sons, own and operate Joe T. Garcia’s, one of the most successful Mexican restaurants, in Fort Worth. There’s not a day that goes by that Joe T. Garcia’s is not packed in their widespread and famous Mexican eatery. Diners of all stripes and backgrounds (politicians, movie stars, religious figures, world known musicians) dine there. What amazes me about Hope is that for years she worked hard in the kitchen cooking meals for her famous restaurant. Up in years, today I often find Hope busing tables and sweeping the floor. I once asked her, “Hope, you should retire, enjoy life, travel, and take it easy.” She said, “James, I love to work. Making money is secondary to me, I love working with my sons and enjoy visiting with my customers. That James is what I love to do!”
Ms. Rosen could learn a lot from rich women like: Rose Kennedy, Hope Lancarte and yes, even Mrs. Ann Romney. But, I seriously doubt it!

Well said, James, being a Mom is the most difficult job in the world. My mother gave birth to 13 children, 3 died at birth and 3 died at ages 5, 3 and 9 months. My father was hardly ever home. He worked, drank, worked, drank, worked...After they both died we all agreed that Mom was really the strength in the family. We should all pray for Hiliary Rosen, I wonder what her childhood or her life was like for her to make sure heartless comments. I wonder if she is a mother. It will soon be Mother's Day. If your Mom is still alive you are a fortunate person. Mom's deserve to be honored everyday of their lives. My loving mother would always tell us, "...bring me flowers while I'm alive, not after I die." I still miss my "Mommy!" God Bless all mothers! Happy Mother's Day Ms. Rosen!

Quote: "Well said, James, being a Mom is the most difficult job in the world."
If only your boy hadn't tried to blame our president for what was said, I may agree with you Joe. Well said? That's the most degrading article on our mothers ever written. He tried to bring down our president using "YOUR" and "ALL" mothers as a catapult. When are you going to stop giving support for those who just want to do evil to our president? And our country for that matter. The terrorists love Eugenio. Not all mothers are great. You read or watch the news on the tube which tell you that they can sin also. However, I salute your mother for her hard work. You should have listened to her and learned to be honest.
My mother quit her job when she got married. Hers and my dad's first child, a boy, was still-born. They had three more boys and a girl. All the boys (including myself) served in the Marine Corps. Many medals, including two purple hearts.
Stop trying to degrade our president with every petty gripe. You are un-American and un-ashamed.

Charlie, this President wants to see America fail. Read his book. His father hated the English colonials, and Obama wants to bring America to our knees. What is it about this man that pleases you? He is a socialist! Chavez is a socialist! Marx & Lenin were socialist! Castro is a socialist! He said, "America is not a Christian nation!" He cowtails to terrorists...Oh..but don't call them terrorists...No...No.....call our CIA interrogators torturers but don't call those who want to destroy America terrorists. This man said that he wanted to bring us all together and he has done nothing but pull us further apart. He is dividing us to conquer us..."a house divided against itself will not stand." Charlie, Marine, you are on the wrong side of this. This man is hostile to our constitution, to our institutions, to our heritage. He is an evil, evil man. Charlie, someday, people who think like you and support this evil man will drink his coolaide, your children, my children will drink his coolaide and I hope that you are alive to see it, to witnes it, to experience the terrible pain and tragedies that this evil man has brought to our country. Semper Fi!

No Joe; you want our president to fail. So that means you want America to fail. You call Our president evil? Look in the mirror. You will see one evil dude. You hope that I live to see distruction? I have seen more distruction than you will ever see "OR" can try to cause. And Charlie Marine will never be on the wrong side when I oppose the likes of those who attack our constitution, our president, and our citizens. I can't say that I will defeat all of you in MY life-time; but you can be sure that come your judgement day, you will meet "EL DIABLO." I hope the children that you claim to help (Iwas told) don't turn out like you.

Charlie when the Supreme Court overturns Obamacare and upholds the Arizona immigration law are you going to call them HATERS as well? You need to get a new rant. What the hell makes you so special that you think you have seen " more destruction than you will ever see"? Are you the oldest man in America? Are you from some other land like my friends from Lebanon who saw their country destroyed for no reason. Or maybe you are from Cuba and have suffered at the hand of that Communist regime? If you are really a Marine, good for you, but get your nose back in line, there is nothing special about you.

There you go again P. No facts for an argument, so you can't control your hate. If (not when) the supreme court upholds Arizona's law, or "ANY" law, that's the law of the land. Like it or not, it's the law. But why are you asking me that? I have told you many times that I am against illegal immigration. Although there may be same changes in the law if it does pass the SC. And I was really a Marine. What's special about me is that I'm honest. I don't try to make a point with lies like you and your ilk. Plus I "HAVE" seen more destruction then you dudes. I have been in many countries. My family has fought in every war since (and including) WW II Yes destruction from communists. But also from you "Haters. You need to get, not only your nose, but your whole head above ground. Stop your fake impersonation.

"If you want to talk about "fail" watch this:" Do you really believe that round lunch meat? That's a bunch of bull from Free Market. Those who don'e care if America fails as long as they make millions. I told you before, I don't like to do that kind of bashing, but watch this. This "REALLY HAS FACTS. NOT JUST ACCUSATIONS."
