Aaron rightly makes note of Hilary Rosen’s phony (and belated) apology for attacking Ann Romney and other work-at-home moms. However, there is, I think, nothing phony about Rosen’s attack. It is, in fact, part and parcel of a longstanding effort by many on the Left to denigrate and demean women who choose not to work outside of the home and to devote themselves instead to their families and children.
There’s also this telling and damning fact: Rosen, reports Jim Geraghty, has visited the White House 35 times.
That’s “four times as often as CIA director/Afghanistan commander David Petraeus, three times as often as Defense Secretary/CIA director Leon Panetta, twice as often as Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki or Energy Secretary Steven Chu, and slightly less often than Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner.” And five of Rosen’s White House meetings, Geraghty notes, were with President Obama himself.
Given these facts, it’s clear beyond a reasonable doubt that, despite their caterwauling, the Obama reelection campaign has been in bed, so to speak, with Rosen. She is their political surrogate and lackey. And, last night, they sent her out on a search-and-destroy mission to take out and discredit Ann Romney.
Unfortunately for the White House, Rosen failed miserably to execute her mission and is now furiously backpedaling. Team Obama, meanwhile, is trying to claim plausible deniability. (Hilary Rosen? Who’s she?!)
But what does it say about our commander-in-chief that he and his staff devote more of their time to consulting with a partisan hack such as Rosen than they do a veteran military commander such as Gen. Petraeus?
America may be at war overseas, but the Obama White House cares only about its own domestic political wars.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
