I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work.

Obama War on Women = Romney votes
I completely agree.
On Casting Stones: How the "War on Women" convinced me to vote for Mitt Romney
A Twitter war blew up the other night - lazy Capitalist that I am, I was laying on the couch, watching a TV show with my husband, so I missed all of the fun and excitement when Hilary Rosen - a highly paid spokesperson for the Democratic Party - temporarily lost her mind and made a bone-headed statement about how Ann Romney - the wife of the presumptive Republican candidate for President - doesn't understand the plight of the Modern American Woman because Mrs. Romney has "never worked a day in her life".
Bless her heart.
Silly me - I've had the NOW mantra "Every Mother is a Working Woman" drilled into my head so often over the past couple of decades that I still bark it out like one of Pavlov's dogs any time somebody tries to imply that the choice to stay at home while raising kids somehow makes a woman less deserving than a woman with a paying job.
Apparently, I'm not the only one, because the howls that went out across the nation have been pretty darn loud.

My lukewarm feeling towards Romney has given way to enthusiasm as this vile episode made apparent just what is at stake here. We are either pro-family/pro-life/pro-light or we are pro-Obama headed for ever darker times.
I am now completely on the Romney Bandwagon, thanks to Ms. Rosen and her war on Ann Romney.
btw, Ms. Rosen's relationship with her partner - with whom she adopted twin girls - lasted only three years and now the girls are passed back and forth between the two "moms."
Thanks for linking me! I love your site - especially since you also have kids with Down syndrome.... :P

Oh yes, my lukewarm feelings are giving way to enthusiasm, too ~ thank you for linking and writing (As usual, Barbara, you do an awful lot of work for me. I hardly need think!)!
