Hilary Rosen Declares War on Families in Obama's Name!

By John W. Lillpop

Hillary Rosen earned her 15 minutes of fame (notoriety) by slamming tens of millions of American women who raise children and run households. Rosen, an out-of-touch left-winger who actually functions as a consultant to President Obama, attempted to ridicule and trivialize the role of American women who stay at home to raise children and run households.

Rosen even went so far as to accuse Ann Romney, mother of five boys, of "Not working a day in her life," an attack that expanded Obama’s "War on Women" to a full-throated "War on Family, Motherhood, traditional values, femininity" and other things good and precious in American culture.

Rosen’s faux pas is still reverberating throughout the nation with approximately 90 percent of all people—men and women—in sharp disagreement with the Obama hired hand and her extremist views.

Ms. Rosen’s insensitive, anti-woman assault should inspire a debate between Michele Obama and Ann Romney, wife of the presumptive GOP nominee, to address the issue in detail.

This is so because modern American political life has seen the wives of American presidents assume an ever- increasing role in the formulation and execution of U.S. policy. Indeed, strong women are now the norm, rather than the exception, when it comes to the First Lady.

Roslyn Carter, Nancy Reagan, Hillary Clinton, Barbara and Laura Bush, and Michelle Obama have significantly influenced the thinking and actions of their powerful husbands, sometimes wielding even more clout than the elected vice president and appointed cabinet officials.

Although the wife of the president is always un-elected and officially powerless, the American people have a vested interest in knowing the qualifications and credentials of those women who would be "First Lady."

Furthermore, the intelligence, knowledge, and articulation skills of the would-be First Lady will provide valuable insight into the judgment and wisdom of the presidential candidates. Informed voters should be able to examine the individual merits of the woman likely to exert the greatest influence on the "most powerful man in the world."

Which is why the prospective first ladies should debate the issues in detail and in view of the entire nation.

An Ann Romney versus Michele Obama debate would be exciting, informative and would shed light on the "War on Women" rhetoric used by Obama and the Democrats.

It might even decide the eventual winner of the 2012 election!
