And to quote the controversial subject:
"Hillary Rosen, a Democratic strategist, started the exchange during an interview on CNN yesterday in which she said of Mitt Romney: “Guess what, his wife has actually never worked a day in her life.” Rosen said: “She’s never dealt with the kinds of economic issues that a majority of women in this country are facing.”"

Now, there's all kinds of backlash against this Hillary Rosen woman, but I have to say. I kind of agree w/ her. I have been both a SAHM and a working Mom so I feel I can have an opinion on both fronts. Yes being a SAHM is hard, it's hard for middle class folks who are barely living on their husband's single income. I haven't done any research on the Romney's because mostly I just don't give a shit, but I have a REALLY HARD time believing she ever had to decide between paying bills, the rent, or buying groceries. That's what this Hillary person is getting at, at least that's my interpretation of her above quote.
She may be the best SAHM there ever was, but if she's never had to work and pay daycare and help support the family then she can't relate to that, she can't speak to that. Unless you've lived it, you have no idea. So what if she has 5 boys? I have 3 boys and a daughter...does her having 5 kids make her better, did she work harder than I(or any other Mom w/ more or less kids)did? Did she ever have to bounce a check to pay for a prescription? Did she ever have to use a Check N Go to pay the rent til the next paycheck came in? I don't know, maybe they have...but I doubt it. I'm just saying, that in a way I completely agree w/ Hillary Rosen and I think she should stand behind what she said and not back down and beg for forgiveness w/ her tail between her legs! I bet you there's not one congressmen/woman that knows what it's really like for 90% of Americans, how we live day to day. I know I'll get hateful comments for this one, so fire away.
