So much for the war on Moms

The Romney camp’s attempt at political jiu jitsu on the war on women may have blown up in their faces because of the candidate’stendency to lie and make flippy floppy;

“I wanted to increase the work requirement,” said Romney in New Hampshire. “I said, for instance, that even if you have a child 2 years of age, you need to go to work. And people said, ‘Well that’s heartless.’ And I said, ‘No, no, I’m willing to spend more giving day care to allow those parents to go back to work. It’ll cost the state more providing that daycare, but I want the individuals to have the dignity of work.”

So, let me get this straight. It’s okay for 1 percenter Ann Romney to be a homemaker but poor women gotta flip burgers? Guess that makes Mrs. Haircut undignified or something or merely another symbol of her husband’s vacuous, sleazy and belief free campaign. Perhaps she can find a gig as an automotive elevator attendant; sounds pretty bloody dignified to me, y’all…

  1. If the hole keeps getting deeper, stop digging.
    I would agree that if someone on welfare wants to work a couple of hours a day, that option should be available. However, I’ve never been able to reconcile the Phyllis Schafly religious faction who simultaneously tout both that the best thing for the child was a 24/7 mom (with corallary that not having mom at home was eroding the family) with the insistence that those on welfare should have to work (and as they can’t get a normal job, there is plenty of trash along the roadside that needs picking up and plenty of other menial tasks to be done).
    For that matter, would / did the Romney plan of a couple of hours a week work find meaningful work for these women? Any job that I know of has to have a certain amount of contact with the workers to keep them “in” on what is going on.

  2. can we speak of living wages? cut the bullshit. her early b-day gift. PFFT, they really live on a different plain.
