Another case in the nearly infinite Liberal line of “Don’t do as I do, Do as I say”.
So I’ll get my surrogate’s to do it for me and then I can denounce it as something I didn’t say or endorse but we got the cheap shot in anyways.
Enter Hilary Rosen (“Never worked a day in her life”) to basically call all stay-at-home moms lazy, and stupid so they should just shut up.
That Ann Romney is worthless. Mitt is a Cultist Mormon. Republicans are only interested in Rich People. Republicans Hate Women. Blah…Blah…Blah…
When that goes awry (or did it? :)), they feign an apology, the President says it ‘s not cool and everyone just moves on like nothing happened.
But they got their shot in. They got their seed planted. They made their childish punch on the nose. Time to move on to the next one.
President Obama strongly disagreed with Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen’s controversial comment about Ann Romney, saying today that “there’s no tougher job than being a mom.”
“Anybody who would argue otherwise, I think, probably needs to rethink their statement,” the president told Bruce Aune of ABC’s Cedar Rapids affiliate KCRG.
But: “We Didn’t Have The Luxury For Michelle Not To Work”
Then why did your surrogate say it at all then?
Because it was a political ploy. A surgical strike in the phoney “War on Women” meme that the Democrats created and The Democrats are fanning the flames of.
The president went a step further, suggesting candidates’ families should be off limits. “I don’t have a lot of patience for commentary about the spouses of political candidates,” he told KCRG.
But you don’t see this surrogate getting fired or anything substantial, just a blow-off apology and some faint heartened denouncing of it. Nope, the strike was made. The poison was injected. Time to move on.
And I get to look like I’m above the fray in the process. A Double plus good day for me. Yeah, Team Obama!!
And the push back: The liberal Lily Ledbetter Fairness in Pay act that the Democrats passed in 2009.
Female employees in the Obama White House make considerably less than their male colleagues, records show.
According to the 2011 annual report on White House staff, female employees earned a median annual salary of $60,000, which was about 18 percent less than the median salary for male employees ($71,000).
Welcome to Liberal Politics 2012. The Sandbox is open for business and Don’t do as I do, Just believe everything I say.
Alinky’s “Rules for Radicals”-Rule 6: A good tactic is one your people enjoy. “If your people aren’t having a ball doing it, there is something very wrong with the tactic.”
And being childish and acting like a self-righteous bully are definite things liberals find fun.
“That’s another trillion dollars in tax cuts over the next ten years going to the top 1% of American taxpayers. [baby crying] I don’t blame her for crying. She is going to inherit it. She’s going to pay for it. That’s one smart baby,” Vice President Joe Biden said at a campaign event today.
Yeah, the $6 Trillion he and Obama added to the debt doesn’t count…because…wait for it…That was Bush’s Fault!!! 🙂
Obviously, he wasn’t talking about the E-Trade baby… 🙂
Oh, and then there’s the expiration of “Bush Tax Cuts” which will raise taxes on EVERYONE Jan 1, 2013.
And the “investments” (aka spending) that Congress and the President want to do more of.
None of that counts, ya see.
OBAMA (In Ohio): Well, you know, I hope it’s not just a negative campaign. I hope this is a serious debate about our future.
BWAH HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!
And he can say that with a straight face, folks!
Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid!
Addendum: Labor Secretary Hilda Solis weighed in on comments made by Hilary Rosen about Ann Romney being unable to relate to working women Thursday, telling The Daily Caller that she thinks “Michelle Obama is a fine example of what the women are in our society.”
“Those working moms that have had to work so hard now, stretch their dollars, and may not even be able to move up in the workplace if their wages haven’t kept up,” said Solis.
“That’s what we’re fighting for… so they can put money away to save. Many women aren’t able to do that and that may not be the case with the nominee — the potential nominee for the Republican Party’s spouse — but I’m just telling you that that’s what I’m hearing day in and day out.”
