Gateway Pundit: Dem Activist Defends Hilary Rosen: She “Had Every Right” to Attack Ann Romney (Video) and Gross. TIME Crank Defends Hilary Rosen: Says “Hilary Was Right… Her Comments Were Accurate and Inoffensive”
Dana Loesch at Brietbart.com found this tweet from Florida Democrat Congressman Scott Randolph.
Over at Nice Deb, there is the transcript of Karl Rove's appearance on Greta van Susteren's Fox show the other night. Rove isn't one of my favorite people, but I agree with him on this. This mean-spirited attack on Ann Romney is a Chicago-style hit. It was planned at the highest levels of the DNC and the Obama regime to where Hilary Rosen was the sacrificial lamb to get the ball going. Then the Regime would play a phony game of "good cop / bad cop." It's also another good distraction from how unemployment is going up again, high gas prices, and the other miserable failures of this regime they want to direct our attention from. Think I'm wrong? Michelle Malkin provided the evidence of Rosen's many trips to the White House.
Bookworm Room makes a great point about what this attack on Ann Romney is all about. It's in the last three graphs, but read the whole piece.
For the last many years, I have been the single most important influence on my children. Yes, they go to school (public school, yet); and yes, they both have thriving social lives; and yes, I’ve been unable to insulate them from a Leftist pop culture that his hostile to traditional norms and to conservatives generally, but I’m still the most important person. Of all the influences in their lives, I am the one who is most present, most consistent, and most trusted. I’m sure they’ll pull away as they get older, and they may even rebel, but I’ll still be that little voice in their brain, imparting facts, values, and analyses.
I am the counterweight to the state. Therefore, I am dangerous. I am subversive simply by existing. My love for my children is a dominant force that works its way into their psyches and that trumps the state-run schools and the state complicit media world. Some mothers, of course, are entirely in sync with schools and media. They happily reinforce the statist message. But those of us who don’t are a powerful anti-statist force and we must be challenged.
The Left’s problem with Ann Romney transcends her husband’s wealth, her (and his) Republican identification, and her decision to work for her children, rather than for a paying employer. The Left’s problem with Ann Romney is that she represents the triumph of the individual. No wonder they hate her so much.
The de-facto head of the Democrat Party and Obama PAC million dollar celebrity idiot, Bill Maher weighed in also (Fox Nation via Weasel Zippers).
HBO’s Bill Maher weighs in on the Hilary Rosen controversy, dismissing it as a “non-consequential,” meaningless controversy. Maher also says Ann Romney “has never gotten her ass out of the house to work.”
“But what she meant to say, I think, was that Ann Romney has never gotten her ass out of the house to work. No one is denying that being a mother is a tough job, I remember that I was a handful. Okay, but there is a big difference in being a mother, and that tough job, and getting your ass out of the door at 7am when it’s cold, having to deal with the boss, being in a workplace, and even if you’re unhappy you can’t show it for 8 hours, that is a different kind of tough thing,” Maher observed last night.
You know Ann Coulter must be really desperate for a man when she actually dated that creep.
