FIAF – Rocket Fail Edition
Yesterday, the Democrats – and North Korea – both attempted a shot across the bow.
Both failed. The Nork’s failure is shrouded in mystery (there’s no video), but Obama’s and the democrat’s is there for everyone to see.
Wars ebb and flow. If the war on women was launched with Republican votes against Obamacare and Planned Parenthood, the liberals struck back when Limbaugh was forced to apologize for referring to left-wing activist Sandra Fluke as a “slut.” But this week brought new developments from the front, when Mitt Romney pointed out correctly that more women than men have lost their jobs under Obama, when the Free Beacon reported that women are paid less than men in the Obama White House, and when Democratic adviser and overpaid consultant Hilary Rosen insulted stay-at-home moms across the country by saying Ann Romney has “never actually worked a day in her life.”
The event was raised to hilarity level “11” when many lefties fell for this:
Later in the day on CNN Ann Romney said that “it’s hard work micromanaging a full staff in multiple homes. There were several nannies to oversee, as well as a number of maids, butlers, chauffeurs, gardeners, tutors and private coaches.
Who fell for it? In addition to many of the commenters at Freewood? Well, folks over at Sodahead.
Moving on …
Ignoring all the facts on the ground, some just announce victory and move one. Slog/The Stranger:
Obviously, Rosen’s comments about stay-at-home moms are unfortunate and wrong, and the Obama campaign swiftly distanced themselves from those comments. But that last bolded bit in the quote above, I think, is the most important line that’s not getting traction in all this, and Democrats should use it to pivot back to what matters: Republicans don’t respect choices that women make. Instead, they call women sluts and allow male-dominated religions to decide what kind of health care women get. They take away family planning options, and try to ensure that women don’t get paid as much as men.
You know, some people simply don’t summarize the news very well.
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).
