In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

  1. I enjoyed the Larry Conners interview. When I saw these two men together I thought for a brief moment that the impressive, intelligentlooking man to the left was really the President while the insecure person to the right was a novice reporter. And the way Obama talked, just stereotypes, saying nothing. I don´t think that Mr Conners will lose his job because of this. On the contrary. He was voicing his audiences concern.
    It´s interesting that the debate about working mothers/stayathomemothers is getting political again. I live in a country where the normal way of life is that women work full time or part time while society takes care of the children in kindergarten /daycare. But there are some families who choose a more traditional lifestyle. However, I think I see a backlash coming. Many young girls have seen their mothers stressful lives and don´t want to repeat it and many glamorizes being a “real housewife”. And I think that many hardworking mothers deep inside regret that they couldn´t be more with their young children. I have seen both sides. I worked hard as a lawyer, stayed at home during my years in the US, continued to work when my two children were young on my return back home but realized that it didn´t work. The family suffered. So since then I have given my family priority. I think that familylife need to be more honoured nowadays.That´s one reason why I like that Ann Romney is now on the stage.

  2. I wonder if the Hillary Rosen remarks aimed toward Ann Romney were not planned to allow POTUS, FLOTUS, campaign, et al the opportunity to feign their outrage and respond so dramatically?

  3. I don’t think either of the Obamas want to draw attention to the fact that MOOshelle surrendered her law license after only 3 years and ended up with a fake job making $317K/year after her newly elected Senator husband sent a $1M donation to her employer– courtesy of Illinois taxpayers.

    Imagine how the DEMS would explode if Ann Romney had received such a generous kick-back from her Governor husband!

    The Obamas want this story to disappear at any price…which is exactly why we should keep it going!

  4. Here’s an interesting quote about Michelle Obama. It reminds me of when Valerie Jarrett said about Barack that becaus of his brilliance he’s been bored all his life because he hasn’t been challenged:

    Just heard Laura Ingraham quote from this 2007 Vogue piece on Michelle Obama, entitled “The Natural” (irony apparently unintended):

    Then, too, there is that little-discussed fact that staying home with children can be—how else to put it?—less than intellectually stimulating. “The days I stay home with my kids without going out, I start to get ill,” she says. “My head starts to ache.” When she mentioned it to her mother, Marian Robinson told her daughter she didn’t think Michelle could handle the boredom of staying home with kids. Obama was surprised to hear that taking care of her had been boring, but now she embraces the idea of discussing it openly.
    Because she was so brilliant, staying home with her little girls made her physically sick. Lol.

  5. Well, I do remember one day in particular during the ’08 campaign when MOOshelle obviously preferred to stay home with the kids. It was on the anniversary of 9/11 when her husband, Cindi and John McCain attended the wreath laying ceremony at the WTC. Her excuse? She didn’t have anyone to watch the children!

    It was also the day when her husband just carelessly tossed a rose onto the Memorial – while John McCain respectfully placed his rose atop the Memorial with his head bowed. The video is available for all to see.

    1. Interesting comments, GrannyJan/Janice and Girly1. Very revealing interview in Vogue. Yes,that´s the way MO really is. I am sure the Obamas want this discussion to end so I hope it can be kept alive. I am positive that the Republicans will benefit a lot by letting Ann Romney speak.

  6. Keith, what do you think about Obama’s comment a few days before Rosen that “we didn’t have the luxury for Michelle not to work.” Was he laying the groundwork for Rosen?

      1. I have been a bit peeved at the fact that women have to be given names
        like soccer moms, security moms etc. First not all women are moms myself included and it seems to be demeaning. There aren’t football dads or stay home dads why label women in a group? I think the American voter should be treated all the same. But we are now entrenched in dividing every segment of the population and pitting them
        against each other sadly.
