Obama needs to stay out of women's issues
By: Diane Sori
Hillary Rosen, a former lobbyist set off a firestorm this week when she insulted Ann Romney, the wife of Republican presumptive nominee Mitt Romney, for being a stay at home mom.
“Guess what? His wife has actually never worked a day in her life,” Rosen said in an on-air interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper when talking about women's issues.
Ann Romney tweeted a response to her remarks: “I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work.”
And yes, it is hard work raising children. I raised two boys, now both in college, and I know how hard that was. I can only imagine what it was like raising five! But you know what, I wouldn't have traded it for anything in the world.
Stay at home moms like me, and moms everywhere, are now in an uproar, as well they should be. Over the past few weeks Obama and his cronies have continued to rage a contrived 'war on women,' just for political gain, led off by the infamous Sandra Fluke circus. And they did this, and continue to do this, just to distract voters from their across the board failed policies. Add into that the distraction of the Treyvon Martin case and the media's total manipulation of it, and you have one hell of a mess going on.
But women seem to be his, and his cronies, target right now, his flavor of the week if you will. As more and more women who want to be in the work force can't be because the jobs just aren't there, it's important to remember these statistics: since the Stimulus Package went into effect, the unemployment rate for women has risen from 7.3% to 8.1%, increasing the number of women out of work by 683,000. Also remember that thanks to Obama, the poverty rate among women has risen from 13.9% in 2009 to 14.5% today, the highest it's been in 17 years.
Now take into account how this president is trying to sell us his take on contraception, his take on abortion, and his take on all issues relating to OUR bodies, and you have a man who is clearly overstepping his boundaries into issues that should be personal between a woman, her partner, and her God. We don't need this president telling us what's best for us, who has to pay or not pay for the services we need or don't need, or who must grant or not grant us those services.
We women do not need a president who invades the halls of education, both public and private, telling them what they must pay for and cover in regards to what is again personal women's issues.
And we sure don't need a president or his cronies demeaning the most important job ever created by God...the raising of children. This president has done more to demean the sanctity of motherhood than any other president in our history. He has tried to take the 'it takes a village' crap to whole new levels of absurdity.
No, Mr. President, it does NOT take a village to raise a child...it takes the love and nurturing of a mother and a father to do that, and if the mother chooses to stay home and raise her children it is no business of yours or of the governments nor do you have the right to criticize that choice.
Maybe if more moms had been financially able to stay home and raise their children because their dads had jobs, you know the very thing you've failed to create, the crime rate and drug statistics amongst young adults weren't be what it is today.
Maybe if more moms had been financially able to stay home and raise their children, God would have been more a part of this newest generation's lives.
And maybe if more moms had been financially able to stay home and raise their children this country wouldn't be in the mess it's in today, because these moms would have been able to see through you back in 2008 and seen what a woman hating man you really are.
