Well, I get home from work and grocery shopping to see that we had an interesting story unfold. Hilary Rosen, a Dem operative, slammed Mitt Romney’s wife, Ann, for being a stay-at home mom. Legal Insurrection has the video…
So then, we have a Democratic operative, belittling the wife of the likely GOP candidate. On the surface, one might just think that this was a typical Alinskyite smear, and it was. However, there is another layer to it, but we’ll get to it in a bit. As for the next move, Ann Romney fired back, and destroyed Rosen…
First Lady Michelle Obama also voiced her support for moms with a Tweet, writing “Every mother works hard, and every woman deserves to be respected. –mo.”
And morning TV hosts Mika Brzezinski and Soledad O’Brien condemned Rosen’s comments on their respective MSNBC and CNN shows Thursday, with Brzezinski calling it “an unfortunate statement” and O’Brien slamming Rosen for “pitting women against women.”
And both Obama campaign manager Jim Messina and top adviser David Axelrod tweeted their disapproval of Rosen’s comments. “I could not disagree with Hilary Rosen any more strongly. Her comments were wrong and family should be off limits. She should apologize,” Messina wrote.
“Also Disappointed in Hilary Rosen’s comments about Ann Romney. They were inappropriate and offensive,” Axelrod added.
Is this sounding suspicious to you yet? Since when does anyone in this administration, especially Axelrod, think that there are any people that can’t be targeted? And the people from the MSM, defending Ann Romney? These people ARE the slime machine. Each holds a PhD in the Alinsky Method, and the smear is a vital tool in their bag of tricks. Needless to say, this is uncharacteristic-to defend a target. Also, I think at this point, it is necessary to restate that Rosen is a DEMOCRATIC OPERATIVE. She works for the DNC, and I seriously doubt that they let anyone go off the reservation. So, I think there is a plot afoot. Here it is…
1. They want to paint Romney as “out of touch.”
2. They want to perpetuate their “war on women” meme.
3. They want to attack Ann Romney too, but can’t without looking bad.
4. They get Rosen to do the dirty deed.
5. As if it were planned in advance, everyone one in the administration decries this “really bad thing.”
6. But, the administration gets to portray Ann Romney, who has grown increasingly popular, as a privileged woman with a life of ease, while at the same time, keeping the president, and all of his chief goons, above the fray. In other words, they launch the attack, and then throw the attacker under the bus.
7. Even though Rosen is under the bus, for now, they got their attack off, and it is likely their hope that they got a message about her to stick. Remember, they rely on the uninformed to hear the initial attack, then not hear the rebuttal.
I think the administration played good-cop, bad-cop with Ann Romney. They got the smear off, and they got to look like the good guys.
We know better.
If I’m right, we’re going to see a lot more of this-with Democratic affiliated individuals and organizations attacking the Romney’s, distracting the public from the economy, and, all the while, the administration claiming to be above it all.
