Rush Limbaugh: Democrats ‘war on mothers’

Rush Limbaugh jumped into the firestorm on Thursday created by Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen’s jab at stay-at-home-mom Ann Romney as the radio talk show host accused the Democratic Party of launching a “war on mothers.”

Limbaugh spent the bulk of his three-hour afternoon program griping about Rosen’s charge Wednesday that Mitt Romney’s wife has “never worked a day in her life,” telling listeners that the comment summed up the Democrats’ position on women’s role in society.


“This is big because it’s such a teachable moment. It’s such an illustration of who these people are, the left. It’s such an illustration of phonies of feminism. It is an illustration of the absolute hostility that the left has for women who stay at home,” the conservative radio host said, speaking before Rosen issued a statement apologizing to Ann Romney.

He continued, “Obama and the Democrats are not content to just divide men and women. They want to go deeper and dive working mothers from stay at home mothers. And they want to attach the virtue to working mothers and assign no virtue to stay at home moms. Now you talk to most women, even those who consider themselves feminists … they will tell you that they thought that was a battle they fought and won and ended years ago.”

2. That whole Ann Romney story was a plant

It give turds like Limbaugh the opportunity to claim Democrats are waging war. I knew this was coming the minute I read the the story this morning.

They are that low.

3. This is an obviously coordinated talking point.

We complain about the right's real and obvious war on women and suddenly everyone on the right, at the same time, starts complaining about a (non-existent) Democratic war on women / mothers.

I can't imagine anyone, especially women, falling for this bull crap.
