“I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfill my profession which I entered before my husband was in public life. “
Teresa Heinz-Kerry stepped in it and proved that the Democrat war on housewives and stay-at-home moms was hardly a “Fluke” (pardon the pun):
Q: You’d be different from Laura Bush?
A: Well, you know, I don’t know Laura Bush. But she seems to be calm, and she has a sparkle in her eye, which is good. But I don’t know that she’s ever had a real job — I mean, since she’s been grown up.
Laura Bush was a public school teacher and a librarian as a “grown-up,” but that’s only a “real” job if you walk out on your classroom to strike for more union garbage, apparently.
“Guess what?” Rosen said. “His wife has actually never worked a day in her life. She’s never really dealt with the kinds of economic issues that a majority of the women in this country are facing.”
“Guess what?” Conservatives said. “Hillary Rosen visited the Obama White House 35 times – literally six times more often than walking embarrassment Vice President Joe Biden and more than twice as much as Obama’s CIA director. ”
And guess what? This Hillary Rosen step-in-it moment also follows the fact that the Obama White House is only paying women 4/5ths what it is paying men.
And guess what? It follows a VERY disturbing liberal trend that’s going on worldwide revealing a pathological hostility to families and stay-at-home moms and anything that gets in the way of government indoctrination of children. And it follows a downright CREEPY trend that Barack Obama and Democrats have established in wanting our kids.
And Bill Maher – the guy who gave Obama a million dollars AFTER saying the following things about women –
- BILL MAHER: Bristol claims that the night she lost her virginity, she had accidentally gotten drunk on wine coolers that she didn’t know contained alcohol and then — and then blacked out and didn’t remember a thing. Oh, the Palins. I’ll tell you the s–t doesn’t fall far from the bat. Bristol, just admit it, you were horny, and while we’re at it, stop claiming that you were on birth control pills that didn’t work when you got pregnant. Here’s a tip, hon – they’re not birth control pills if they’re shaped like Fred Flintstone.
- BILL MAHER: “Did you hear this – Sarah Palin finally heard what happened in Japan and she’s demanding that we invade ‘Tsunami,’” Maher said. “I mean she said, ‘These ‘Tsunamians’ will not get away with this.’ Oh speaking of dumb twats, did you…”
- BILL MAHER: But I’ve often said that if I had — I have two dogs — if I had two retarded children, I’d be a hero. And yet the dogs, which are pretty much the same thing. What? They’re sweet. They’re loving. They’re kind, but they don’t mentally advance at all. … Dogs are like retarded children.” — Bill Maher
- BILL MAHER: “And finally, new rule – and I never thought I’d be the one to say this – but DON’T show me your tits! (laughter) Last week the world’s first nurse-in was held to protest the case of a woman who was breastfeeding in public and asked by an Applebee’s manager not to leave but just to cover up a little bit. Because the wait staff got tired of hearing, ‘I’ll have what that kid’s having!’ (laughter) I’m not trying to be insensitive, here. I know your baby needs to eat, but so do I and this is Applebee’s, so I’m already nautious [sic]. (laughter) Breastfeeding a baby is an intimate act, and I don’t want to watch strangers performing intimate acts. At least not for free. (laughter) It cheapens it. But breastfeeding activists – yes, breastfeeding activists, called Lactivists (laughter) – say this is a human right and appropriate everywhere, because it’s natural. Well, so is masturbating, but I generally don’t do that at Applebee’s
I could actually just go on and on, but you get the point. The guy who gave Obama a MILLION DOLLARS – or to put it another way the guy whose MILLION DOLLARS Obama is keeping – has a visceral hatred of women and he’s a big part of the Democrat Party fundraising operation. Just to show which side is truly “anti-woman.” And which side is abject hypocrites on a daily basis (see also here).
“The language here was, perhaps, inartful, or perhaps America is a society that lives to fight stupid, non-consequential, meaningless controversies and this is the new one,” Bill Maher said during the panel portion of his HBO show “Real Time” last night.
“But what she meant to say, I think, was that Ann Romney has never gotten her ass out of the house to work. No one is denying that being a mother is a tough job, I remember that I was a handful. Okay, but there is a big difference in being a mother, and that tough job, and getting your ass out of the door at 7am when it’s cold, having to deal with the boss, being in a workplace, and even if you’re unhappy you can’t show it for 8 hours, that is a different kind of tough thing,” Maher observed last night.
Being a liberal means being stupid times arrogant times evil squared.
You know what else is different? Putting on a strong front and managing not to lose one’s cool when the kids are misbehaving and trying to kill each other. The same goes for crawling out of bed at 3:30 a.m. when your colicky baby needs to be held more than you need sleep. Or prying open a stubborn toddler’s mouth so he/she won’t starve to death due to his/her weird hunger strike. Let’s not forget figuring out a way to get the children off the playground when they refuse to leave. These are all challenges I’ve faced as an aunt, and I can’t even begin to imagine how much of a struggle it is to be a parent and encounter these things every day. The day-to-day annoyances and occasional meltdowns are trivial, but raising happy, healthy children is not an easy, comparable task.
And yet it makes sense that Maher, who isn’t a parent himself, wouldn’t understand that striving to be the best dad/mom possible is just as hard — perhaps even more difficult — than working with a prickly manager and going to the office in frigid temperatures.
The funniest thing of all is how you’ve got Democrats publicly whining about how the “war on women” they started has backfired on them and how unfair it is.
