NOW president: Ann Romney lacks “life experience” and “imagination” to relate to most Americans

posted at 10:26 am on April 13, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Via Newsbusters, NOW President Terry O’Neill ignores the First Rule of Holes (stop digging!) and provides another cycle for Republicans to defend Ann Romney and stay-at-home moms.  Instead of leaving bad enough alone, O’Neill appeared on Ed Schultz’ MSNBC show last night and attempted to rewrite Hilary Rosen’s faceplant and keep the attack on Ann Romney for not having a salaried job in the workforce as a means to paint the Romneys as out of touch.  Say, remember when feminism meant supporting the choices of women and defending them from being marginalized and demeaned?  Good times, good times:

TERRY O’NEILL: 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.”

Stick around to the end to see Rep. Maxine Waters keep it classy by calling the presumptive Republican nominee “Mitt Rot-ney,” but O’Neill is the real show here.  Once again, we get to see the professional Left’s utter disdain for women who chose to stay home with their children rather than work in the workplace.  Do they also lack “life experience” and “imagination”?  Are their political and economic views also irrelevant?  Is a woman’s worth entirely measured by her salary?  Is that the official position of NOW?  If so, then perhaps they may want to think about an official name change.

My friend Jonathan Martin of Politico commented on Twitter about how quickly the Right embraced grievance politics in this instance.  It’s a worthwhile point, and this can certainly get overplayed, but it ignores a couple of other points.  First, Democrats have been accusing the GOP of conducting a “war on women” since February of last year, when DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz explicitly made that accusation, and which VP Joe Biden reiterated last night — on the same show, despite claims from Democrats earlier in the day that they never indulged in that language:

Vice President Joe Biden said tonight that what he called a Republican-led effort to rollback the rights of women is “real” and will “intensify.”

“I think the ‘war on women’ is real,” Biden told MSNBC’s “The Ed Show,” deploying the politically-charged phrase for the first time on the national stage.

“And look, I’ll tell you when it’s going to intensify – the next president of the United States is going to get to name one, possibly two or more, members to the Supreme Court,” he added.

The grievance fight in this case has been under way for fourteen months, so to blame the Right for responding is a little odd.  Also, Rosen took a swipe at a candidate’s wife, as O’Neill did again last night.  Once again, don’t blame the Right for responding to it.

Update: Democrats claim to be backing away from the “war on women” rhetoric, but neither Biden nor their merchandisers have gotten the message.

Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Reid, Rosen, O’Neill, Olberman, Matthews, DBear, etc. Often the greatest enemy of the modern liberal is his/her own words. Sometimes it’s just best to sit back for a bit and let them keep talking. With some it takes a little longer but there is a point that the sane will catch on. The insane mind cannot be changed anyway.

imagination? what the…

and i can’t stand how the left thinks that rich (or at least… relatively well-off) people have no problems in life. there are plenty of rich people out there who are unhappy- being rich doesn’t make you happy. but libs think that if you are rich it must be 24/7 happiness and you can’t possibly understand what it’s like to suffer and be unhappy and deal with problems in life.

and also, there are rich lefties too, why aren’t they ever bashed? oh i forgot, only rich conservatives are evil.

Not it’s not. How is it grievance politics if conservatives and Republicans take offense to a Democrat hack telling Mittens and Ann to shut the hell up about the economy because they’ve got money? Not only is it hypocritical(aren’t the Obamas rich and living in the damn White House?!), but it’s condescending and arrogant. I’d say 99% of the people who reacted in anger were being totally sincere.

That’s such a load of garbage. Responding to an attack on Ann Romney is hardly “grievance politics.” You want to see that in action? Some dopey libs made a futile effort to cast attacks on Hilary Rosen’s statements as “anti-gay,” for seemingly no other reason apart from, um, that she’s gay.

The chief NAG hag knows all about real life, and to prove it she’s slandering a cancer survivor mom with MS, as if she were running for POTUS and not her husband.

My God,the more they dig that hole the more they’re making women in general look like complete idiots! Based on their infinite wisdom I suppose it would be fair to say that all married women who don’t have a salaried job lack life experience and imagination? Would that include their very own mothers if they weren’t employed? This is just making my brain hurt, it’s so stupid. However, I hope they just keep right on stepping in it, right up to the election.

I thought James Taranto put the best contrast to “women’s work”:

Raising children is a lot of work, and we’d venture to say it’s more valuable work than, say, lobbying for the music industry or helping BP with its crisis communications, to name two of the highlights of Rosen’s career.

The end goal for liberals is for all women to work in govt jobs while their kids are in govt run child care centers 12 hours a day. So any woman who strays from this plan is by definition meaningless to the cause.

The left’s contempt for mothers is so strong they can’t resist showing it.

To them, a “real” woman is an overweight, unattractive, childless (from her own womb) lesbian like Hilary Rosen or JANET NAPOLITANO.

That couldn’t be FURTHER from the mainstream. Keep this up, Dems, you are proving who is REALLY at war with women.

Fenris on April 13, 2012 at 10:41 AM

Also, Rosen took a swipe at a candidate’s wife

Ed, if I may, it was more than that. She unintentionally made her remark a general statement about stay at home mothers.

You are correct they should stop digging, but as one of the other posters wrote yesterday, they just do not understand the absolute fire over this, any more than they understand what happened at the Supreme Court a few weeks ago.

If they did understand, as conservatives do, they would run away from this as fast as they can. Even Rose can’t help herself. On Blitz’s show she somehow couldn’t even fake sincere contrition. For her it’s merely politics and a fake War on Mom issue.

There are a few things one attacks in the US to their peril.

When childless, misanthropic women deign to tell mothers of any number of children they lack “life experince” I have to laugh.

The only good thing about the gender feminists is they purposefully failed to produce offspring, and thus we will be rid of them in a scant two generations at most. Non-breeding themselves out of existence.

Poetic justice – a gender feminist may need a man like a fish needs a bicycle, but the gender feminist movement will die out because they did in fact need men to sustain the movement’s ideals onto their would-be children.

BKennedy on April 13, 2012 at 10:44 AM

So with this question from the NOW braintrust, the left has taken to dissing and invalidating the life experiences of, well, everyone. Don’t we all have our own experiences of life and aren’t they all valid, at least to us personally? I could easily question Terry O’Neill’s life experiences as that of a sheltered, angry, brainwashed feminist, and don’t even get me started on Maxine swampqueen.

Here’s one for the left: A caller to Rush’s show yesterday asked why the Dems don’t criticize welfare moms who don’t work outside the home. Read about it at American Thinker.

stukinIL4now on April 13, 2012 at 10:44 AM

This may be a mistake on the part of the aging feinists. They may not realize that some young women, including many thought to be prime NOW materiel, no longer hold the same bitter attitude about motherhood. I think there is a bigger percentage of young women, than NOW might like, who are positive about women devoting some years to their kids. Not all young women are Sandra Flukes.

katiejane on April 13, 2012 at 10:44 AM

Instead of leaving bad enough alone, O’Neill appeared on Ed Schultz’ MSNBC show last night and attempted to rewrite Hilary Rosen’s faceplant and keep the attack on Ann Romney for not having a salaried job in the workforce as a means to paint the Romneys as out of touch.

Good snark Ed!!!!!!!!!

And I am listening to Levin from last night. He opened with a good point. Obama didn’t give a DAMN about a working mom when he got Ryan’s divorce records unsealed and made them public, thus humiliating that woman and damaging their child.

And now the Dems trot out another stooge to try to advance the ball. They don’t realize they are losing this war on MOMS?

Depends which Terry O’Neill you’re talking about. I personally know 1,412 women called Terry O’Neill.

My friend Jonathan Martin of Politico commented on Twitter about how quickly the Right embraced grievance politics in this instance.

We’re not supposed to fight back. Not that pointing out stupidity and hypocrisy constitutes “grievance politics”.

And it wasn’t a conservative who was forcing Hilary Rosen to walk the plank – it was Wolf Blitzer and a whole slew of other Democrats.

Window inside the liberal mind.

Funny, how libs hate the nuclear family. Mom, Dad, and children. It’s a mindset of hate, guilt, and being self centered.

But on the positive side, they embrace homosexuality, Marxism, abortion and OWS… That should count for something right?

Anyone have any good shovel making companies I can invest in?

I’d typically recommend Caterpillar but this particular spectacle may actually boost Manitowac or Krupp sales to get the job done.

Sandra Fluke is a fluke.

NOW is stuck in the PAST.
