Liberal Ezra Klein of the the Washington Post puts a different spin on democrat surrogate Hilary Rosen’s recent belittling of Ann Romney as a stay-at-home mom. In Klein’s outrageous argument, he doesn’t see any difference between a financially independent stay-at-home mom and an unmarried mom on the government dole! Here is what he writes:
Mitt Romney flashback: Stay-at-home moms need to learn ‘dignity of work’
Mitt Romney, it turns out, was against calling stay-at-home mothers “working moms” before he was for it.
MSNBC’s Chris Hayes broke the news this morning. Back in January, Romney appeared at a town hall even in Manchester, New Hampshire, where he explained his position on welfare.
“While I was governor,” Romney said, “85 percent of the people on a form of welfare assistance in my state had no work requirement. I wanted to increase the work requirement. I said, for instance, that even if you have a child two years of age, you need to go to work.

The far left doesn’t know when to quit! Even with Obama’s campaign manager Jim Messina, David Axelrod, AND Michelle Obama throwing Hilary Rosen under the bus for her derogatory comment toward Ann Romney, the progressives at MSNBC and Washington Post are doubling down on this attack on Ann Romney. Prolonging this line of attack is not going to win the suburban moms who went for Obama in 2008. But, if they want to spend another week of this meme, more power to them!
