Obama Lays Groundwork for Rosen’s Attack on Ann Romney

The Obama campaign would have us believe that last night on CNN Obama advisor and frequent White House guest, Hilary Rosen, spoke out of turn with her indefensible attack on Ann Romney and every woman who chooses to stay home and raise her family. But in a speech last Friday at “The White House Forum on Women and the Economy,” President Obama seemed to be laying the groundwork for exactly this attack.

By last Friday, it was already apparent that the only thing stopping Mitt Romney from becoming the GOP presidential nominee were mere formalities, and talk had already begun among Obama’s media allies that Ann Romney, the wife of our likely nominee, was going to be a huge asset for the Republican ticket. Attractive, charismatic, warm, well-spoken, intelligent, and likeable on sight, she would do much to not only soften her husband’s edges but also to help shore up the so-called gender gap.

As we’ve all seen since President Obama stabbed the Catholic Church in the back a couple of months ago,  Obama is cynically plotting a path to re-election through a phony “war on women.” Because he can’t run on a failed record, the White House and the media are hoping this divisive tactic will scare enough women into voting against Romney.

When that’s your sinister plot, a woman like Ann Romney is a serious problem…

…Speaking of his wife Michelle just a few days prior to Rosen’s attack, President Obama launched a little theme that should sound familiar after last night’s fireworks:

“And once Michelle and I had our girls, she gave it her all to balance raising a family and pursuing a career–and something that could be very difficult on her, because I was gone a lot.

“Once I was in the state legislature, I was teaching, I was practicing law, I’d be traveling,” he said. And we didn’t have the luxury for her not to work.

Oh, boo-hoo for the Harvard graduate…

…Publicly available tax documents from 2002, obtained by TheDC, reveal that Rosen received a total compensation package of $2.8 million during her final year as CEO and President of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

Rosen earned a salary of $2.65 million dollars for 40 hours of work per week to head the Washington lobby group. In addition, she received $141,512 in contributions to her benefits package from the RIAA that year as well.

Rosen led the Washington lobby group when it sued music file-sharing service Napster in 1999 – 2001 for its facilitation of music copyright infringement. She left the RIAA in 2003…

Yeah. So, attorney Rosen could have afforded to remain at home to raise her adopted twins if she wanted to.
Just like Ann Romney.

Ann Romney rallies conservative troops to her husband’s cause

…Hilary Rosen has made it a lot easier for conservatives, particularly social conservatives to rally to Mitt Romney.  When they see a liberal pundit take on his wife, they rush to defend the individual attacked, hence Mrs. Romney’s rock-star reception. And if people learn her story how she raised five boys, battled breast cancer and suffers from MS, this charming woman will a far more sympathetic figure than she already is.

This kerfuffle allowed one revere conservative woman to challenge the hypocrisy of those who attacked her in 2008 for the choices she made, choices a bit different from those Mrs. Romney made in her life.  Tina Korbe writes about Sarah Palin’s reaction to this kerfuffle:

When she ran for vice president, some on the left actually criticized her for not staying home with her five children…
