  •  If HR has to explain it, it was a mistake (7+ / 0-)

    She stepped in it no matter what she was trying to say.  The Obama team knew that immediately which is why they denounced it post haste.   Front page posts on a high profile blog does nothing but keep this issue alive.  We should follow the lead of the Obama re-election team here and say it was wrong and move on.

      She blew it and it is even more useless to try to defend it. If it didn't get across what she wanted, it was wrong. As soon as I heard it I said "Ouch, that's going to leave a mark!"
      Don't give them opportunities for "faux outrage" (I like that phrase).

    •  And how many people .. (0+ / 0-)

      outside the Beltway Cocktail weenie circuit/Sally Quinn parlor-party circuit even know who the hell Hilary Rosen is?  And if anyone does .. they probably despise her .. and I bet you can guess why

      •  is the guess because (0+ / 0-)

        she is an open lesbian? Those of us who do know her would easily assume that is what you mean.  The reason we don't want Rosen as a spokesperson for the Democrats is because of her association as a lobbyists and not the good kind, like environmental groups, but the money making kind who are willing to run over their stay at home grandmothers for a quick buck.  She was one of the most powerful lobbyists outside the gas, oil, finance and insurance industry in Washington.  She is well known in those circles of power.  She has no grassroots connections and is a class snob.

        Pass new laws to end media monopolization now.

    •  Why on earth did Obama (0+ / 0-)

      say ANYTHING? Hilary Rosen is nobody; she speaks for herself. Do all the top republicans stand up and repudiate the remarks of every single teabagger anywhere when they suggest someone should shoot the President? This has been said by Republican elected officials? Where were John Boehner and Mitch McConnell and Reince Preibus to denounce them?

      The Obama team made this about four million times worse by even acknowledging it. THIS IS WHY THEY DO IT — to get us to apologize and repudiate and renounce and look weak and cowering.


      Take the "Can't(or)" out of Congress. Support E. Wayne Powell in Va-07.

      •  Because he WANTS people talking (0+ / 0-)

        about this issue. There is no way Romney benefits from talk about women in the workplace. It doesn't matter what is said ultimately. It only matters that the issue is front and center and that women by a margin believe that Repubs hate women's rights.
