Are we really this easily distracted? Recently, Hillary Rosen a Democratic pundit & Lobbyst made a remark directed towards Ann Romney (wife of Gov. Mitt Romney) that started a backlash of controversy. Are we now so distracted on what the actual argument was that we now are back to women’s rights on staying home or not? First, that was not the argument she was making. Hilary Rosen was speaking to the point that a millionairess (who’s been of a privileged life) may not be the best person to be the source of detailing women’s lives who are struggling to make ends meet. Secondly, it was a woman who made the comment, right?! If you think Mrs. Romney knows what it feels like to make the decision whether to go to work to earn money to feed, shelter and clothes your kids or stay at home and raise them….more power to you (oh by the way, I have a great piece of property in Alligator Alley, FL)!
Let’s see if we can get back to the matter at hand! Does Gov. Mitt Romney (the projected Republican Nominee for the Presidency) promote policies which will make working women’s lives easier? Where exactly is the “mommy wars” in that question? Are you guys/gals really going to let “Willard” off the hook from answering this very important question? By the way, that reporter from the Huffington Post (Mr. Sam Stein) never got his question answered….still on hold? Why then have we jumped tracks on an issue that in this case is not an issue? Why? Because, we are absolutely stupid and easily distracted as a Nation! Yes, America the beautiful and often times full of SH#$!! I’d rather live in a Country like Iran where the Dictator can say exactly what he actually feels and means than continue to have this duplicitous rhetoric spewed on every media outlet on cable and internet (politically speaking of course). At least they know their leader is a jackass and could care less if they eat or not! Notice how they (not in power) want real change and fight with their lives every day in hopes that someone will save them. Do you think they could be distracted on whether Ahmadinejad's wife knows what their life is like? HELL NO! (for the record, no I don't want to be Iranian, nor am I a Muslim fundamentalist...however, i would like our politics to have REAL substance and stop with the overbearing hubris)
What in the hell is wrong with us? Mommy Wars…really? Were mothers asleep when Congress basically established an all male panel to decide what kinds of contraception they would be allowed to have on their insurances? Where were Mrs. Romney and her adoring fans’ outcry then? It’s all politics people….WAKE UP!!! The reality is people get paid a lot of money to mislead and keep we Americans confused and asleep. We are not getting politically smarter we’re WORSE! If we wake up and begin to let the media know we don’t care about the alleged Mommy Wars, N. Korea’s paper rocket that fell in the sea, or ALL Reality TV programs....we will go back to the good ole days when reporting was by true professionals that cared if "truths" were being told!
Dear God, please bring back (Walter Cronkite, Edward R Murrow, Tim Russert, Peter Jennings, Ed Bradley and Andy Rooney)....please :(
By the way, when did “a Corporation” become an individual? AND why in the hell did “we the people” let 9 FOOLS (in black robes) tell us we’re ignorant and didn’t know the answer to that question already!? Why are we not at arms about that? Ooppps that a discussion for another day….
