“But he doesn’t connect on that issue either. 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. 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 why do we worry about their future. [...] He just seems so old-fashioned when it comes to women and I think that comes across and I think that that’s going to hurt him over the long term. He just doesn’t really see us as equal.”

It’s the new tone! Call a woman a “‘cunt,’ ‘bitch,’ ‘whore’” if she’s a conservative. Attack an MS & cancer survivor who raised five children without nannies. And offer a back-handed “apology” too.
Hmm..women who stay at home while a husband works? Conservative, like guns, no nannies, traditional values…
Not "real women" according to left.
The left hates people. Average Americans are just cattle for the elites to whip. Of course cows get slaughtered. Abortion, taxes, political correctness, environmental wackiness. It’s just one set of wannabe elites bitching that they can’t have you shot for thoughtcrimes.
The spouse of a police officer, doctor, firefighter, lawyer or any profession with long hours and major commitment has a tough job. Often they sacrifice earning power so they can be with children.
That don’t matter to the feminazis who declare that any stay at home mom is not a real woman.
The honor of being real women goes to the libertines who abort the results of their drunken hook-ups. Welfare teen moms, political hacks and rich lefties who say the right things. People who don’t work for a living but expect the rest of us to pay for them.
“We are proud to provide pro-bono support to Sandra Fluke, an incredibly courageous young woman who is standing up for the rights of women everywhere in the face of sustained, personal attacks. This week, we began helping Sandra, a full-time law student, manage the enormous volume of incoming media requests …
I am proud of our staff for donating their time and energy to work with Sandra during this important and difficult time.” – Hilary Rosen, Managing Partner, SKDKnickerbocker

Unlike a rich bitch going to law school on her parent’s dime (and expecting the tax payers to pay for her good times), a non-working spouse has to balance a budget. A man or woman staying home with kids has to make sure they get to school, go to the doctor and make sure the younglings are fed. That’s a real job folks. Kids are expensive and time consuming until they turn 18. They can’t raise taxes or get a government bailout. Nor are they able to get free PR flacks. Or nannies.
Ann Romney could have had nannies raise the kids while she worked in some office job. She chose to be a part of their lives. The left either views kids as a burden (or worse) or they pawn them off on nannies (Ask Judge Kimba Wood).
If we think of the household as a household, Ann Romney’s decision to stay at home makes perfect economic sense: Her decision to be a full-time mother enormously improved the quality of life for Mr. Romney, for the couple’s five sons, and — let’s not overlook this critical factor — for Mrs. Romney herself.

Of course the left doesn’t understand families. Evil can’t comprehend good.
(but someone in the Whitehouse makes sure they stay away from Rosen’s stink, behold the gusty call!)
