She just needs to stop talking about this issue.
The rhetorical war over women between President Obama and Mitt Romney escalated Wednesday night as Romney’s wife Ann launched a Twitter account to personally respond to a Democratic pundit who had dismissed her knowledge about the economy by saying she “never worked a day in her life.”
Hilary Rosen, a political consultant who advises the Democratic National Committee, questioned on CNN Wednesday night whether Ann Romney understands the economic issues facing women.
“His wife has actually never worked a day in her life,” Rosen said on Anderson Cooper’s “AC360” show. “She’s 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 how do we — why we worry about their future.”
First, I'm not sure why anyone cares what Ann Romney thinks about anything. Second, if Rosen avoids the rhetorical bomb at the beginning of her attack, everything she says in on point; namely, that the Romneys aren't well suited to relate to the average American because neither has ever lived anything close to the normal American life. Mittens himself showcases his awkwardness with normalcy on such a regular basis that one can almost set a watch to it.
Last I checked, part of feminism was empowering women to make choices for their own lives; even if that choice is being a fabulously wealthy stay-at-home mom. Democrats would be wise to stay away from Ann and stay focused on the piñata of goodness that is her husband.
