Ann Romney drafted into new 'mommy wars' skirmish(Read article summary)
Do we really have to refight the mommy wars? Ann Romney was a stay-at-home-mom with five boys, how does that not fit into the concept of 'work'?
â€śGuess what, his wife has actually never worked in a day in her life,â€ť Rosen said.
Really, Hilary? Do we have to play that way?Â
Politics aside, I think a number of the sleep-deprived, oatmeal-covered moms taking care of their kids might disagree about that whole â€śworkâ€ť concept. (Oh wait, thatâ€™s me this morning.)Â
â€śI made a choice to stay home and raise five boys,â€ť Romney responded quickly onÂ TwitterÂ â€“ her debut on the social media site. â€śBelieve me, it was hard work."
Five kids at home.Â I shudder.
Rosen has clarified her point. All she was saying, Rosen explained, was that Mitt Romney probably shouldnâ€™t be using his wife as his guide to womenâ€™s economic problems.Â
â€śIâ€™ve nothing against @AnnRomney,â€ť she wrote on Twitter. â€śI just donâ€™t want Mitt using her as an expert on women struggling $ to support their family. She isnâ€™t.â€ť And this: â€śWhen I said @AC360Ann Romney never worked I meant she never had to care for her kids AND earn a paycheck like MOST American women! #Truthâ€ť
Well, the political point might be a valid one to debate. (Not going there on this site.) But it would be kinda nice if we could stop throwing dirt and value judgments around on other moms â€“ even in a presidential campaign.
