"Respect Women's Choices", says Ann Romney. Beneath Romney's "Mona Lisa Smile"
Ann Romney suggest we should respect a woman's choice to be a mother or to have a career. Many women wish they had that choice. The economy hasn't cooperated with what many middle class women would like.
Most American women find that they need to do both- work and raise their kids. Ann Romney didn't have to make that choice.
In the Julia Roberts' movie, "Mona Lisa Smiles", the main character teaches at Wellesley College, a conservative women's private liberal arts college in Massachusetts because she wants to make a difference and influence the next generation of women.
Katherine ( Robert's character) seeks to inspire her students to seek more than marriage to eligible young men.
Ann Romney chose to be Mitt's wife and help him with his career. She appears to be very happy with that choice. What she wanted most was to be a wife and mother after graduation from college.
Ann Romney asks us to respect her choice.
The movie, "Mona Lisa's Smile" asks the question, "Are women that make Ann Romney's choice, happy? Could there have been more?" It's nice that Ann Romney had this choice. Most women do not.
The Romney/ Rosen flap is another manufactured crisis by the GOP. But, when you can't win the debate on the issues, the GOP is known for calling their opponents names and sending out campaign solicitations to their supporters. They're selling bumper stickers now to raise money.
"Moms Drive the Economy" is what it says. LOL. Yeah, no kidding. Liberals get that and we got the part that Rosen said that Republicans claim they misunderstood.
Ann Romney says that people should respect choice. That's hilarious coming from a conservative Republican woman.
Rosen's 'gaff' is being used to raise money by the Republican Party that they will use to limit women's choices.
Choice? What does the Republican Party know about that. Oh. They must mean, choice for the real people- corporations and rich conservatives.
Many women have no choice about whether they want to stay home or work. Middle class women's choice is to work and raise a family or not have a family and work.
While it's nice that Ann Romney had the choices she did, most women don't have that luxury in this economy. And Romney and his policies will give women less choices than they have now on reproductive rights and health care.
For the White House to distance themselves from Hilary Rosen when she's been a tremendous advocate for the Obama Administration is wrong. You distance yourself from the harsher than necessary words but not the person.
Women that question their traditional societal roles, should have that choice too, Mrs. Romney. Your Party's ideology believes in the traditional role for Liberal women. And that's not choice, Mrs. Romney. It's hypocrisy
