    Quote of the Day – Terry O’Neill Edition 

    “What would we be saying if Hillary Clinton had said this: that Ann Romney has never, has not worked for pay outside the home a day in her life?  That’s my understanding that’s an accurate statement, and that raises the exact issue that Hilary Rosen was trying to get to, which is do Mr. & Mrs. Romney have the kind of life experience and if not, the imagination, to really understand what most American families are going through right now? I think that that was what Hilary was getting out, and so she left out the words “for pay outside the home.”

    Terry O’Neill, President of The National Organization of Women.

    Oh, so Ann Romney would be ok if she took care of someone else’s children for pay.  I get it.  It isn’t that taking care of children is bad or non-work.  It is when you do it out of love for them instead of a paycheck that it causes you to lose imagination and life experience.  So if she were a nanny for instance, she would have been fine.  Do this woman have any idea how much imagination it takes to keep young children interested all day?  Or does she think sticking them in front of the X-Box with a bag of Cheetos is all it takes?

    This reminds of something else from last Mother’s Day.  Read all about that here.  

    Truly, this has been a gift from God for Romney.  Ask yourselves, how many SocCons did you expect to be rallying around Romney?  Not this many I am sure.

      The left has nothing of value to sell, so they must constantly put down the right. If it weren`t this, it`d be something else, equally bereft of originality and truth.

      In fact, the Romneys very well may lack real understanding of the struggles of the poor and middle classes, but you can be sure, they know how to make money, to run businesses and keep employees working ! They understand well how burdensome regulations and taxes stifle businesses and force them to look for greener pastures, like out of the country.

      The left, socialists seem to be lost on those understandings.

    Hey Hillary, Want to Hear About my Non-Working Day? 

    I was up at 5:15 this morning.  I slept in compared to my usual wake time.  As per my normal morning routine, I made myself a cup of tea.  Took my medication.  Ate something (the time of the day that I get to eat in peace), got dressed.  I checked my e-mail, paid several bills online then made three more breakfasts.  After that, I got two people dressed.  I then cleaned up the kitchen.  I read two books because neither child can read yet.  I then watched them outside in the yard playing with the dog while I swept the kitchen floor.  I also tried to figure out why the dishwasher was leaking again even though I waited for two and half hours last week for someone show up and fix it.  I put away all the dishes.  Put on a Dora the Explorer and made mid morning snacks.  While I was taking the few minutes to myself, I made some calls to make sure that I had someone to bring the baked goods I was about to make to the church board meeting tonight.  I cleaned up after the snacks.(oh, I had to come up with a quick dipping sauce  on the fly for the carrots because I only thought I bought a new bottle of ranch dressing) Changed a diaper. Fought with a six year old about putting socks on.  Forced a two year old to wear a jacket against her will.  Schelped two kids to the bus stop (I no longer drive).  Went to the grocery store.  Picked up the dry cleaning.  Found a place to have a little picnic lunch with the three lunches that I had made earlier.  Schelped two kids back to the bus stop.  Realized I lost something along the way, and had to go back to find it (losing Elmer the duck is not acceptable and will only lead to a crying jag and possible sleepless night).  Read another book while sitting at the bus stop. Because I had to go back, I missed the bus and had to wait an additional half hour.  Checked my email and my blog.  Got off the bus.  Schelped two kids to the library where I am now sitting while they are listening to story time.  Once that is finished we will hunt for the three books each that they are going to take home.  I will make another snack.  Start baking for tonight.  Start dinner.  Take the dog for a walk.  Sweep the walkway.  Water the lawn and the flower beds.   Somewhere in there I have to feed four people dinner, give two baths, do some laundry.  Look online to find out how much another dishwasher costs.  Take my own shower (something I have yet to do today).  Feed the dog.  Make several phone calls.  Change diapers again a few times.  Figure out where the three still missing Easter eggs are (note to self, next year make a map).  Read the newspapers.  Put away the Easter decorations.  Fold and put away the clothes that will be washed.  Get two kids to sleep.  (some days easier than others) Try to maintain a marital relationship, and get some sleep.

    But no, I don’t work.

        oh yeah, the putting the jacket on the skirming and yelling 2 year old was especially a good time. I wouldn’t trade it for the world, but please don’t any one tell me that it isn’t work.

        yes, thank heavens. I can’t imagine what would have happened if I didn’t find Elmer. With my oldest I was able to keep the attachment to one particular item away. But not so with the youngest. This duck has been very well loved and is a necessary item for day to day life.

      Hilary Rosen (36 visits to the White House) launched Obama’s attack on Ann Romney. Then Hilary, the lesbian, was left on the battlefield by obama, moochelle, Axelrod, messina, and other obamabots!
