  •  They had to point out that she was a lesbian? (7+ / 0-)

    Let's take a look at the rec list... you want to tell me again that we shouldn't "attack" spouses?

    You don't bring a lollipop and good tidings to a FREAKIN' GUN FIGHT.
    We will lose this messaging battle if we keep trying to stay above the fray. All Americans will hear is that a Dem is attacking Cancer Survivor and MS stricken Ann Romney. Sympathy votes will sway Romney's way and we are helping him out by cowering in the corner.

    When the operation of the machine becomes so odious that you can't take part,you've got to put your bodies upon the gears;you got to make it stop.Indicate to the people who run it that unless you're free the machine will be prevented from working at all

      have to stay on the "high ground" until Nov. no matter how nasty they get.  The weenie dems will shout everyone else down over and over because we can't "lower ourselves" to the GOP level.  Someone needs to tell them that the high ground doesn't lead anywhere but off a cliff.

      We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.

        far, too fast on this when they could have used it to some kind of message for their side.  Instead, the white flag went up.  Now, we get to thank the Catholic League for being what they always are - scum.  

      •  Yep, the "We are better than this" game is over (1+ / 0-)

        We need to fight this with everything we have.

    •  But it's fair game (2+ / 0-)

      for Republicans to say "Moo-chelle Obama has a fat ass".

      If she's going to speak in public, she has to take the consequences that some people will disagree with what she has to say. You never hear anyone attacking Nancy Pelosi's husband or Al Franken's wife, but they don't involve themselves in their spouse's campaigns.

      •  OK then. Ann Romney and Michelle Obama are fair (0+ / 0-)

        game. Michelle can be called a fatass who shouldn't tell us how to eat/exercise while Ann can be called a lifetime stay at home mom who shouldn't tell us how women should handle their economic troubles.

        The two are the same? One is a personal attack, the other isn't an attack on Romney or her children but stating that she doesn't know what it's like to be a middle class stay at home mom.
