There they go again. Liberals launched yet another disgusting smear campaign and this time it blew up in their faces. After months of hammering hateful “War on Women” and class warfare messages, Democrat operative Hilary Rosen got her signals crossed when she badgered Mrs. Ann Romney, a stay at home mother of five with multiple sclerosis who survived breast cancer, as never having worked a day in her life.
Despite the outrage, Obama’s million dollar Super PAC donor Bill Maher doubled down on the attack and pushed it even further over the line, saying, “But what she meant to say, I think, was that Ann Romney has never gotten her [expletive] out of the house to work.”
Millions of women exploded at the slight against hardworking mothers and it reignited the Mommy Wars. Make no mistake, motherhood is a job and it is the most important job in the world. My wife is a stay at home mom to our four beautiful children and she can tell you it is a thankless 24/7 job with many sacrifices and frustrations but it is worth every moment. This attack on Mrs. Romney is an attack on her and every other underappreciated mother.
The Democrats’ “War on Women” message is not working. In addition to this disrespect of mothers, the Obama White House has been called a “hostile workplace to women,” where women are paid less than men. Since President Obama took office, 92.3 percent of the people who have been laid off from their jobs have been women – 858,000 of them.
Knowing how hypocritical they look, the Democrats are now attempting to disavow their “War on Women” phrase, even claiming it wasn’t their language. Clearly, they have forgotten DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s appearance on Meet The Press in early March that added the “War on Women” to her long line of divisive and over the top statements. They’re trying to pretend that former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi never penned a fundraising email used by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) to garner donations based on the plea that “the national media and our opponents will use our grassroots fundraising totals to measure the strength of our opposition to the Republicans’ War on Women.” I guess we will see the disappearance of the DCCC’s sale of “Stop the Republican War on Women” car magnets and the “One Million Strong Against the Republican War on Women” online petition. Will the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee remove their “Stop The Republican War On Women” action alert, too?
These false political theatrics and conjured up wars can’t distract from the real issues facing all Americans, whether it’s the painful price at the pump, the stubbornly high unemployment rate, or our skyrocketing debt. America is suffering from the failed policies of President Obama and some of the loudest voices against these policies have been women. They know that we cannot pass America’s crushing $15 trillion debt onto the next generation.
In the Citizens United Productions film, “Fire from the Heartland: The Awakening of the Conservative Woman,” Michelle Malkin explains this maternal instinct by saying, “We do not want our kids’ and our grandkids’ futures taken away from us and we’re going to stand up and do whatever we need to do to make sure that doesn’t happen.”
This is not the war the Left was hoping for, but the Mama Grizzlies have been reawakened – and they’re ready for battle.
