Ann Romney “never worked a day in her life.” Let’s give her a medal!

Filed under: Germany, Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 12:35 pm

There is a big controversy in America about the fact that the wife of Mitt Romney was a stay-at-home mom. Hilary Rosen, a political consultant who advises the Democratic National Committee, said on CNN Wednesday night that Ann Romney “never worked a day in her life.”  Ann Romney is the mother of five children.  She responded on her Twitter account, writing:  “I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work.”

Hilary Rosen was trying to make the point that Mrs. Romney doesn’t know anything about the economy because she was never in the work place.   I think it is the other way around.  Ann Romney was reading books, watching the news on TV, and listening to her husband talk about the economy, while she was “not working a day in her life.”  She is probably more informed than mothers who work outside the home and have no time for anything else.

In Nazi Germany, the role of a mother was highly respected.  In fact, a German mother was given a medal for raising children.  As the mother of five boys, Anne Romney would have been given a medal for her service to her country.

  1. Eeeww….my adoptive mom would probably have liked to get one of these too, great heroine and sacrificer that she was. This would have made a great passive-aggressive mother’s day gift, if e-bay had been around back in the day, when I was still really angry at her.
