The idea that I would create a division between stay-at-home moms and working moms is just silly. That has nothing to do with what I said," Rosen told Anderson Cooper.
That's Hillary Rosen and I don't believe her for one minute.
She said last night on CNN that Ann Romney had never worked "a day in her life" and that was her argument that Romney -- wife of presumed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney -- was not qualified to talk about the economy.
Word to Rosen, Ann Romney is an American citizen. She has every right to talk about the economy or any other issue.
And you don't know her.
You don't know what she reads in her spare time or what issues she follows.
But you assume that because she is a stay-at-home Mom, she's an idiot and certainly not as 'smart' as you -- you who were forced out of the RIAA because you were hurting the RIAA. That's how ineffective Rosen is. As the front-person for the RIAA, she embarrassed even them.
Ann Romney isn't, as far as I know, talking macro economics with her husband. If she is, good for her. (I couldn't do that. I'm not educated in that.) She's certainly qualified to talk about the state of the economy in the country that she lives.
Shame on Rosen for implying that Romney must be an idiot for choosing to stay home with her five boys.
I've got three kids. I work. If I stayed home, that wouldn't make me stupid or unqualified to speak on the economy and I resent the implication that Romney is somehow less intelligent because she is a home maker.
