7. When we are out there saying that the right is in a war against women
It doesn't seem like a wise idea to tell folks that they, their moms, grandparents, etc who stayed at home didn't work.
Oh sure- that is not exactly what was said, but that is how it comes across.
Mitt's wife is not running for office and focusing on her and commenting on her is a distraction and a waste of time and serves no real purpose.
This is big time politics (presidential level) and I, for one, am surprised at how much ammo we just fed the right here on DU and elsewhere by basically saying (as you will see in other threads) being a stay at home is not a career and how can a woman understand the business world and it's pressures, etc.
Forget about Ann, what she does, what she says - her name is not on the ballot and she is not going to pander to the left anyway and anything we say about her is not going to harm Mitt. The only real possible losers are the left when, come hell or high water, we attack her.
Rosen apologized because she realized how it came it across - even if she was right - and that it harms more than it helps.
