Who is Hilary Rosen?  While I have been celebrating Easter a week late because Bulgaria follows a different religious calendar, I get to see a piece from the Daily Show about how Mitt Needs Moms.  Now what is this?

Apparently, Hilary Rosen did the stupidest thing that any liberal could do and actually attacked the nuclear family. She said that Ann Romney has never worked a day in her life.  For those of you who don't know, Ann Romney is a homemaker who raised Mitt Romney's five children.  Being a stay at home mom is one of the hardest jobs in the world. I don't know how hard it is exactly, seeing as I don't have kids, but I can only imagine.  In the wake of the Republicans attacking women's freedom of choice, it is an outrage for Rosen to be attacking freedom of choice on the other end.  The true idea of freedom of choice for women doesn't mean that all women will be executives--some women want to stay at home, some women will be mothers. Because that is the choice that she made and there is nothing wrong with that choice.

It is disgusting to me to see that someone who is trying to make a reasonable argument about women and their beliefs doesn't see that a woman can choose whatever she pleases and that other women don't need to be putting each other down.  Ann Romney may be a wealthy woman who never had to hold a job to make ends meet, but we don't begrudge Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama, both who worked outside the home and both who are wealthy women.  Every woman should have the right to choose how she wants to live her life.  We should be celebrating eachother, because I am sure that if Hilary Rosen had raised five children, she would think it was a difficult job.
