Ann Romney’s “War on Men”: Sexist Speech Says Women Care More Than Men, “Single Moms Hold Country Together”

By Debbie Schlussel

So, this is how desperate the Republican Party and the Romney camp are to win in November. So desperate that they gave Ann Romney a sexist, anti-male speech to deliver, and she eagerly obliged. Despite the mindless group-think gushing on the right, anyone who heard that speech–anyone who read its text–knows that Ann Romney, last night, launched a “War on Men” in order to try to gain the women’s vote and counter the Obama baloney about a “War on Women”. It won’t work. But she and the GOP know they can get away with it because, after all, where are the men gonna go? Are they gonna vote for Obama? No. So, now, they are just chopped liver. Unappreciated. Now, Ann Romney tells us, they care less about their families and sigh much less about desperate economics that face their families. It’s the women, she instructs us Gloria Steinem-style, who care more. It’s the women who must–according her to NOW ethos–that must work far harder to prove themselves at work. Huh?

Ann Romney & The Feminists Man-Haters @ NOW: Their Rhetoric is the Same

On what planet is she living? Certainly not the planet in which women are getting benefit after benefit, job after job, and promotion after promotion because of gender-based affirmative action. Oh, and guess what? Ann Romney says that single moms “hold America together.” No, moronette, they TEAR America APART. Incredible. Four years ago, we had a VP nominee who glorified single motherhood by pimping out her babymama daughter to reality shows and high-paid speaking engagements, promoting teen motherhood. Now, we regressed even further, with the First Lady wannabe embracing single motherhood as something that makes America great, when every single solid statistic shows they are a major factor in destroying America, by creating generations of fatherless kids who don’t want to be men and don’t know how (other than turning to drugs, crime, babydaddyhood, and slacking at home at age 35).

Here’s the text of Ann Romney’s horrifying speech (only horrifying if you have a brain and the ability to get beyond the rah-rah, let’s beat Obama and do-anything-to-get-there BS surrounding her absurd speech; for everyone else, you may return to your brainless drooling):

And if you listen carefully, you’ll hear the women sighing a little bit more than the men. It’s how it is, isn’t it?

It’s the moms who always have to work a little harder, to make everything right.

It’s the moms of this nation — single, married, widowed — who really hold this country together. We’re the mothers, we’re the wives, we’re the grandmothers, we’re the big sisters, we’re the little sisters, we’re the daughters.

You know it’s true, don’t you? You’re the ones who always have to do a little more.

You know what it’s like to work a little harder during the day to earn the respect you deserve at work and then come home to help with that book report which just has to be done. You know what those late night phone calls with an elderly parent are like and the long weekend drives just to see how they’re doing. You know the fastest route to the local emergency room and which doctors actually answer the phone when you call at night.

You know what it’s like to sit in that graduation ceremony and wonder how it was that so many long days turned into years that went by so quickly.

You are the best of America. You are the hope of America. There would not be an America without you.

Tonight, we salute you and sing your praises.

I’m not sure if men really understand this.

[Emphasis added.]

HUH? HUH? HUH? This is the rhetoric of the bra-burning refugees of the ’60s and ’70s. Men don’t work hard, men sigh less, men don’t understand? Single moms of this nation “really hold this country together”? Only women help their kids with homework, only they help elderly parents and go visit them at the hospital? Are you frickin’ kidding me? Women have to work harder to earn respect they “deserve” at work? And she knows this from working her full-time, back-breaking job at I Have a Car Elevator, Inc? No one devalues her work as a stay-at-home mother, a noble calling, but she hasn’t a clue what it’s like in today’s work place, where men are the losers in endless affirmative action.

Um, we just had a major scandal break in the Obama Department of Homeland Security, run by WOMEN, in which women actually did not “work a little harder during the day to earn the respect [they] deserve.” In fact, they didn’t work hard at all in sexually harassing and discriminating against straight male ICE agents. What she said about that and her claim that women care more about their families is just the same absolute bunk you can hear at a feminist “womyn’s” potluck vegan dinner and cigar fest during WNBA halftime.

Why are the men of America taking this sitting down? Because they’ve become wimps and predictable Pavlov’s dogs who salivate at the prospect of anything that can beat Obama. Anything at all, no matter what tactics–including this not-so-veiled feminist rant–are used.

Sad. She responds to the class warfare against her rich husband by fighting a gender war against America’s men.

Yup, this is how desperate the GOP is to win in November: they’ve adopted the anti-male lingua franca of the left. Who needs Betty Friedan, when you have Ann Romney taking her place, with a drug-addled version of women as the true martyrs of American life and its workplace?

Ann Romney, you lost me. Wish I could say the same about America’s men–that Ann Romney lost them, too. But after decades of attacks from Ann Romney’s apparent colleagues in the feminism industry, their testicles have atrophied to the point that your sickening attack on them, last night, went unnoticed.

Single moms as the backbone of America. Hilarious.

Memo to Ann Romney and the GOP: You don’t comabat Obama’s “You Didn’t Build This” with Ann Romney’s “She Built It, and Men Just Don’t Understand.”


By the way, don’t count on Rush Limbaugh and other conservatives to point any of this out. They’ll gush endlessly over this anti-male diatribe where they’d go on the attack if Debbie Wasserman-Schultz or Michelle Obama said these things. They’ve lost their principles and will embrace anything because they want to beat Barack Obama so badly. They did the same thing by embracing Sarah Palin and excusing the endless glorification of single motherhood she engaged in with her babymama daughter. Don’t look for anything different here, because you won’t get it.


The ghost of Betty Friedan is having the last laugh.

Chris Cristie’s speech was just as bad! he starts out talking about how his mom was really in charge, how his dad was just a passenger in the car of life (even though he worked while putting himself through college), and went on to tout all the strengths he got from her. He may have eventually gotten around to praising his dad but I stopped watching.

Sean M on August 29, 2012 at 9:03 am

    What is wrong with you people? Do you want that muslim illegle immigrant to get a 2nd term ? I may not agree with everything Romney has to say or his wife for that matter, but they are soooo much better than that crap that is in the White House now. Let’s get together behind our best alternative. Just imagine another 4 years of Zero calling the shots.

    Dan P. on August 29, 2012 at 7:41 pm

      If the alternative is the same, why bother to replace Obama?

      Embracing the Left’s position on men and the family and Obama’s views on Islam, foreign policy and national security is not going to bring us the kind of America we need and deserve.

      If you’re going to agree with him, it makes the case for voters retaining Obama. When I read moronic speeches like this we heard last night, I have to wonder what makes the GOP any different from the Democrats.

      Heck, they aren’t even trying to defend America as it used to be. In fact just the opposite! If this is “conservatism” I wonder what liberalism might be.

      Mercifully, neither William F. Buckley nor Ronald Reagan have lived to see what has become of the Right and the Republican Party in America.

      The bottom line is come November, win or lose, America is still royally screwed!

      NormanF on August 29, 2012 at 8:52 pm

      Better than what’s in the White House? Really? How? They have the same foreign policy, same budget, same fiscal policy, TARP, bailouts, judicial appointments (mittens bragged in 2004 that his judicial appointments were more liberal than if a Dem had been in office….look it up.) There is not one serious difference between Mittens and Oblama. You’re just a party hack. You know, one of those wetards that think, “hey, if the county collapses with a Republican in the White House we all get a big fat COOKIE!! WHEEEEE!” Wrong. Instead of 4 more years of socialist Obama we will get 8 more years of socialist Romney. Why don’t you go grow a pair with hair on em and quit “compromising” away the Constitution and our rights. Stand on principles you wuss!

      Bullet Gibson on August 30, 2012 at 11:14 am

        Exactly right Bullet. I for one am sick of voting for or getting the lesser of two evils. Because in the end you get the same but in a lesser dosage. The Republicans all are complicit in Obama’s crimes because not one of them has either the patriotism or cojones to speak out about them. The whole Republican convention is a sick joke because of addressing the problems this country is facing all we hear from the speakers (a la Ann Romney) is how nice we Repubs are. And by the way. Where are the conservative/patriotic Republicans such as Alan West?
        Where are the Tea Party people who helped the Republicans to victory in 2010? The Republican party of today is indeed the lesser to two evils.

        Jerry G on August 30, 2012 at 1:47 pm

Once again, you nailed it Debbie!
2:1 all the radio hosts on SRN [Town Hall] praise Ann. Bill Bennett already has. Personally, I believe all those “strong” single mothers are in the infinite minority. Especially those “single” mothers who come from “single” mothers. Animals always take the path of least resistance. Fix the family, fix America.

Sick_Boy on August 29, 2012 at 9:12 am


    Women constitute 53% of America’s population and they’re the swing voters.

    I agree with Debbie, the speech is horrifying as a matter of conservative tradition and fidelity to political principles but its supposedly smart politics in today’s environment.

    I mean – where are the men going to go? And the GOP needs to reassure women the GOP is as liberal – heck even more liberal than the Democrats!

    In reality it isn’t smart politics because sexist attacks on men like an attack on class backfire on those who make it. Its men who built this country, who have given their blood for it, made it the greatest country on earth and love their wives and children and its appalling last night that no one in that convention hall could put one minute forth in their defense.

    As Debbie has always reminded us, this is another sign of where America is headed as a matriarchy. None has ever survived and you can bet Islamic terrorists are laughing at us, too!

    NormanF on August 29, 2012 at 2:14 pm

      The real swing vote is the bloc that dares not speak its name: the white vote — or at least a fourth of it at any rate.

      Seek on August 29, 2012 at 6:52 pm

It is amazing. You could have had Sandra Fluke give this sort of speech with obvious modifications. Also, I do not think that Mormons really celebrate single parenthood, so Ann Romney is pretty much off the wall on that line of thought as well. Republicans do not win by acting like kinder and gentler Democrats. It does not turn on your base, nor does it attract independents who are looking for something different. Why go for a generic house brand cola when you can get Coca Cola? Republicans fail to understand that someone who is center-left or left is going to go for the real thing whenever they have a choice. I cannot blame them for that. Who wants a second best or imitation product when you can have the real thing? Republicans are not going to pick up single mothers who are on SNAP or utilize EIC no matter how hard they try. Also, validating such a lifestyle until fairly recently was considered the province of urban Democrats. The Republicans apparently no longer have any shame or sense. Obviously, the Country Club-Rotarian Republicans are in the ascendant. One would have thought that that crowd had disappeared with Gerald R. Ford and Nelson Rockefeller. Obviously, the spirit of Millicent Fenwick is back. The socially responsible Republicans have returned.

Worry01 on August 29, 2012 at 9:32 am

That’s it. I’m not voting.

Even though I’m not at all a fan of Romney I was going to vote for “anyone to beat Obama” because I thought our country wouldn’t survive economically. No more. It can’t be any worse to vote for a soulless, gutless Romney. At least Obama is a true believer in his socialism.

Thanks, Debbie…and I mean that sincerely.

Jeff_W on August 29, 2012 at 9:52 am

    I and all in my family are voting AGAINST obama… PERIOD

    We will NOT vote for a man whose policies on health care will LITERALLY kill somebody in my family. Those death panels in obamay care are REALLY MURDER panels.

    So go ahead and vote for your loyal socialist and I will know who to add some blame on as my family member DIES at the hands of obamay care!

    Alabama Pride on August 29, 2012 at 2:29 pm

      Embracing affirmative action, feminism and single motherhood is a sign of just how much the Right has atrophied.

      Next it’ll go to embracing Obamacare and then single payer health care. I’ve been attacked for it by conservatives.

      But Mitt Happens favors the same anti-male and anti-America policies as his opponent. If this is what we can expect from a Romney White House, get used to a second term Obama.

      The GOP will have no one to blame in November for not beating a guy who could be beaten except itself – and conservatives have bought into “winning is the only thing the counts and principle be damned.” Its sad!

      If by a miracle Romney does win, don’t look for things to change much in the next four years because they won’t and I predict that American voters appear inclined to agree with that assessment.

      We needed a real choice this year and we didn’t get it. But then again its no surprise we’re getting exactly what we deserve in the nomination of Mitt Happens as the Republican Party’s nominee for President Of The United States.

      NormanF on August 29, 2012 at 2:43 pm

No women I know that have a career are spending any time cooking and cleaning at home. They are much too impressed with themselves and their great career, and since they work sooo hard they deserve to come home and sit on their ass all night and weekend. If she makes more than her husband forget it, not chance in hell she’s doing anything at home.

I’m also tired of hearing about the brave single mom. You got knocked up without being married, or got divorced – congratulations! You’re so brave for failing! And why are single moms so strong and brave but never single dads? Because when you start hearing about strong single moms the implication is they were somehow wronged by an evil man – after all, no brilliant woman would get knocked up on accident, and no brilliant woman in history has ever been a contributing factor in their own divorce.

Hopewell on August 29, 2012 at 10:04 am

    Hopewell, I LOVED your post! Thanks for it.

    I also wanna spot-light a different variable on your great points on single mums (to show how ‘effen STUPID women have gotten and what a farce feminism is). The disgusting broads who “shack up” with men and they are not married yet call themselves married. It makes me go bing-bong!

    NO, you are NOT married. Do NOT call him your husband and you are NOT his wife. He does NOT respect you enough to marry your sad ass! And that you cook and clean for the user makes you even more pathetic. Used much??

    So please America. Instead of bashing males why not point them back in the right direction and then re-educate females on how not to sell themselves cheaper and more desperate than a hooker and understand what self-respect REALLY means.

    We have so-called Conservatives refusing to address these issues. That’s why even in the advent of Obama-Putin it’s hard for me to get excited like the attendees of the RNC. DS said it all nicely in her column.

    Skunky on August 29, 2012 at 11:42 am

      I did not hear ONE word BASHING men in her speech at all…but then I am a little hard of hearing due to an ear ache.

      I actually liked hearing how nice her husband is to people and how he helps people.Even guys!! But, what I really liked is the fact that she told about their NON-STORYBOOK marriage… I have one of those too…. and because of health issues as well…Mine and MY husband’s.

      Sorry you guys felt all put out over her praise of the gals in the USA but hey the demoncrats paint the GOP as haters of the gals…. SOMEBODY has to show GOP is NOT a bunch of women haters.

      And I am an independent..just my opinion but hey, I respect ya’lls too. We can still be friendly. : )

      I will not vote for the little ZerO!! Period.

      Alabama Pride on August 29, 2012 at 2:38 pm

      Skunky I cook and clean for Her, now since you hurt my feelings she can do that for herself too,

          Kevin Kehoe on September 1, 2012 at 11:50 am

I started booing in the first couple of minutes into Miss Ann’s speech. After that, I suggested that it would have been far more appropriate and amusing to have our favorite equestrian come on stage with her horse to declaim the famous soliliquy from Richard III.

Christie’s speech was almost as nauseating.

No to Mittens! 1000 times NO!

Time for me to send another hate mail to the Mittens campaign. Hey, I supported that idiot and homophobe from Pennsylvania over Mittens for a reason.

skzion on August 29, 2012 at 10:13 am

    I made a similar suggestion.

    After watching the “pampered talking Rafalca” ad and laughing at the horse’s snooty fake voice – – I suggested to the other person present that it might be better to hear a speech from Rafalca herself.

    It turns out that Ann Romney and Rafalca have that same snotty tone – even without that harpsichord music in the background.

    Statusmonkey on August 29, 2012 at 11:04 am

      We used to have horses, till my husband had a serious health problem. WHAT the heck is wrong with owning horses now??

      We did not have dressage but WAR horses for re-enactments. They were VERY well trained and not inexpensive. Their care, feeding and medical care was NOT cheap.

      We are middle class people and not snooty at all. I see nothing wrong with owning a horse for whatever you want to do with the animal. Except, please do not eat the horse. : (

      So I think people who make fun of horse owners are themselves SNOOTY. WHO ARE YOU to knock another person’s hobby???

      You sound like a class warrior a la obama. Sorry to have to say it, but YOU DO! I am insulted by your attitude toward horse owners.

      We now support old horses at a “retirement” home for horses. Is there something SNOOTY about that too??

      Alabama Pride on August 29, 2012 at 2:58 pm

        @Gay Pride,

        Just so we are absolutely positively clear on one thing, you *are* aware that the horse in that video isn’t actually talking, right?

        That being said, *of course* they gave it a snooty voice. My point is that Ann Romney’s actual performance didn’t really sound all that different from the hoity-toity “parody” voice in the ad.

        Yours truly,

        Captain Obvious

        Statusmonkey on August 29, 2012 at 4:12 pm


I’m not interested in either the Republican Party or the Democrat Party, for they’re both equally guilty of despotic tyranny, violating our divinely inspired Constitution of the United States of America, and destroying our republic.

But, one comment in Miss Schlussel’s article did jump right out at me.

I grew up in a traditional home with Daddy at work and Mama staying home.

Neither one of them EVER helped me with my homework!

They would have considered such a thing to be cheating.

Boy, could I ever tell you some stories about how life in these United States of America USED to be – – – a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away – – – way back when our communities were SAFE to live in, before the curse of mandatory racial integration was forced on us at the point of a bayonet by our own government.

Thank you.

John Robert Mallernee on August 29, 2012 at 10:13 am

    My folks always helped me with problems in my homework and an I am OLD person… so dear retired military person, some parents and even grandparents did in fact help their children with homework in the OLD days.

    How is that cheating?? My dad always checked my math to make sure I “got it” and he was a scientist. My mom helped me many times with writing, making sure I was NOT making huge errors.

    How do we learn IF people do not help us do things the RIGHT way?

    Graduated college with honors and had no stupid student loans. MY parents MADE sure they had the funds to HELP me go to college to get MORE education. And they had money set aside for my wedding as well.

    NOTHING WRONG with parents helping their children get an education or helping with their homework!

    Alabama Pride on August 29, 2012 at 2:49 pm

      Alabama, I liked your comments on horse ownership. I have some problems that manifest like MS and while I didn’t do dressage, I did participate in a therapeutic riding program before coming to Israel. It’s something that is catching on here too but I can’t do it right now. I’m sure one reason Anne has so much energy is in part due to her riding. I was going to say also, that women who ride are quite assertive. You have to be if you want to control 1,500 lbs. of muscle under you. So, those who expect Anne to be a quiet little “wifey” need to rethink that idea.

      I also agree with you about homework. My goodness, Mr. Mallernee, young children just starting their school careers need some guidance and help. I loved to learn and was a good student. I went into kindergarden knowing how to read and write but in Second grade, we were given a teacher who had never taught the lower grades before and was herself young. (this was a catholic school). She really piled on the homework; 40 spelling words, 20 arithmetic problems, several pages each of geography and history to read, probably 10 sentences to write and for the catholic kids, something like 5-10 catechism questions to memorize!!!!!!! I was in tears every afternoon. I understood the work but that is just too much work for a little kid after a full day of school. At first my Mom tried to get me to do it but after about 2 weeks she saw it was impossible and heard other mothers complaining. The teacher was also meting out severe punishments for incomplete work. So my Mom and some of the others had a meeting with the principle and this teacher and explained to her that we were little kids and you know what? She backed off on the amount of work, was more reasonable in her punishments for incomplete work and we grew to love her and she us.

        Sometimes parents need to advocate for their children as well as teaching and disciplining them. Occasionally, protecting them from the clueless is necessary.

        Italkit on August 30, 2012 at 1:51 am

Incredible that the Republicans are defensive after four years of the worst president in history, and the initiation of Obama care and the economic problems he has caused.

Obviously the Republicans do not disagree with Obamacare, otherwise they wouldn’t have chosen Romney. As we saw some months ago, they don’t really disagree with raising the debt either and as many Republican governors have shown us recently, they don’t really mind raising taxes either, with a few exceptions such as Gov. Walker. And as pointed out yesterday, they don’t disagree with appeasement of terrorists as a foreign policy. And as shown repeatedly, they agree with catering to illegal aliens. Not much left.

And as reaffirmed yesterday, they don’t disagree with affirmative action and government handouts for women. She had a wonderful opportunity to attack Obama’s war on the Catholic Church, that might have really gotten the Republicans some swing votes in states like Ohio. But, no.

Even discounting the Akin factor, the same speech probably would have been given. The Republicans obviously accept the breaking down of America into various victim groups.

Not even an attempt to defend the Mormon Church against the bigoted attacks of the Democrats. Religious intolerance (Mormons, Catholics, Jews) has again become a central feature of American life, and both the Republicans and Democrats are promoting and encouraging it.

Little Al on August 29, 2012 at 10:35 am

I came home from work at 8PM, ate dinner, did some work around the house and went to bed, only to get up early to go through the same routine again. Thus, I didn’t have time to watch Ann’s speech. So thank you Debbie, for giving us the truth.

To Ann Romney: My mother taught that if I don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything. So I have nothing to say.

David on August 29, 2012 at 10:41 am

The Republicans are pandering to women again. IDIOTS! I hope Romney wins, only to get the current moron out of the White House.

David on August 29, 2012 at 10:42 am

Yeah, I watched her speech. Schlussel posted a link to the text, but I think you have to watch the actual delivery to appreciate the manic insincerity that comes across so clearly. She sounds very remote and out of touch. Has this woman even TALKED to a real person before? Her limo driver, at least?

I disagree with Schlussel’s assertion that the campaign is “desperate” to beat Obama. If that was true, don’t you think they would be, oh, I don’t know, ATTACKING him in their speeches? At least a little? And Santorum’s speech – talk about a missed opportunity. More than any other speaker, he was the one person who might have rebuilt the bridges that Romney torched in the primaries. Instead of explaining why people should put principle in the backseat this one time and bite into the turd sandwich, he went on a bizarre, inane tangent in which he mentioned “hands” at least 100 times.

Pretty much every speech last night was canned and lifeless. Everyoneseemed to just be going through the motions. And I doubt that McCain and McConnell will be an improvement.

You know, any great poker player will tell you that the key to success is in that game is folding on the bad hands. Maybe this year the Republicans should put that advice to good use?

P.S. The mystery speaker on Thursday night could ONLY be Bob Dole. You heard it here first, folks – a Statusmonkey exclusive.

Statusmonkey on August 29, 2012 at 10:48 am

    MY heavens!! MANIC delivery?? The woman has MS.

    HAVE YOU ever dealt with the speaking problems some people with MS have to deal with? Well MONKEY, I have.

    AGAIN you have managed to insult ME and this time another person in my family.

    Personally I find you insensitive to other’s disabilities and an obamay class warrior.

    YOU monkey have your opinions but I have MY Health REALITIES!

    Alabama Pride on August 29, 2012 at 3:05 pm

      @Gay Pride,

      I believe I said that her delivery revealed a manic *insincerity.*

      Anyone who’s spent more than a day in high school can spot fakeness a mile away. I saw a FLOOD of it coming out of Princess Ann last night.

      Fake is fake – MS or no. Your supposed inability to understand the point is not very convincing. Obvious troll is obvious, n’est-ce pas?

      Statusmonkey on August 29, 2012 at 3:49 pm

        Alabama, why would you ever care what a blustering know-nothing MonkeySpank thinks? He’s the site gorilla that everyone ignores because he spews nothing but um-gala-gala.

        Just keep living your life. That wanker’s opinion does NOT affect your life and that is how it should be. Praise Jesus we are not related to it because then we may have to endure the idiocy.

        Skunky on August 29, 2012 at 6:13 pm


          LOL, I said anyone who had ever attended *high school.*

          Obviously that excludes you – and the quality of your “writing” shows it.

          Schlussel is probably right about 60 percent of the time. So I guess I should actually be grateful that she’s around to do all of your thinking for you. You are what those of us in the younger set refer to as a “fanboy” – and one of the lowest and most servile type.

          Statusmonkey on August 29, 2012 at 6:56 pm

          Monkey Spank…you wish in your dreams you could write like me.

          I got you beaten even before we start. Dream on crap flinger!

          Skunky on August 29, 2012 at 7:02 pm

      HAVE YOU ever dealt with the speaking problems some people with MS have to deal with? Well MONKEY, I have.

      You have my sympathy.

Oh give me a break. I thought Ann’s speech was great. All you do is nit pick. Whenever you give a speech, you talk to a certain segment of the electorate. Her job was to talk to women, and I am a man. She did a superb job, I guess Ann is the new person to add to your list of women to hate.

    I could care less about all this political stuff because I KNOW we have to get rid of obama.IF we do not people are going to die who might otherwise live awhile longer.

    But I swear the attacks on a lady because she speaks in a manic way which seems insincere to some or because she loves having a horse, is BEYOND reprehensive.

    As my old granddad the blacksmith used to say, “the OUTSIDES of a horse are good for the insides of a man (or a lady)”.

    I read several years ago, long before this campaign, that Ann Romney got the horse to help her get over the bad effects of MS.

    GOOD for her!

    TO THIS I CAN RELATE in an extremely personal way. Although it was not the full grown horse that helped my relative, it wasone of the minature horses. He was almost like a toy but the joy he gave was unbelieveable.

    We had full grown horses years ago as well. And owning horses can be a real lot of work but also very enjoyable.

    Class warriors always make fun of horse owners, tennis players and la crosse team members. JEALOUS no doubt.

      Pfft. If you care that much about defeating Obama, you should have fought a lot harder to keep the nomination away from the tree-humper.

      Statusmonkey on August 29, 2012 at 5:32 pm

    Oh puhlease Mark, my black ass Ann Romney’s speech was superb, bro, your the type of idiotic and braindead conservatives DS is talking about and referring to, you schmucks are no different than the foolish unthinking liberals, doing the very samething, “group-think”!

    Let me ask you this Mark, if next weeks DNC convention, if either Hillary Clinton, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Michelle Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, Maxine Waters, etc. gave the similar speech that Ann Romney gave last night, will say “yadda yadda, um, there speech was superb yadda yadda”? I bet you’ll be bitching and moaning about it? And it’s not nit-picking stupid, it’s called “critical-thinking” and “thinking for yourself”, my lord some of you kooky wingnuts like Mark’s ilk are just plain old nuts!

    “A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

      Sure name calling just like DS helps the conservatives. You of course have no idea what you are talking about, and it is people like you and Debbie who will get the current campaigner in chief reelected. And then you can just kiss your sorry a…. Goodbye, because this country won’t survive another four years. Go back and climb into the hole from whence you cam.


      Mark D on August 29, 2012 at 5:07 pm

        You just don’t get it Mark, as I said earlier on today, your the type of conservatives who DS has been calling out and holding responsible for being nothing but a bunch of hacks for the Republican party. WTF do you want Mark, for me, Debbie and all of us here to be good little children and suck up and kiss the GOP’s ass and kiss the right-wing establishment’s ass as well?

        And you failed to answer my question regarding if any women at next weeks DNC convention will give a similar speech that Ms. Romney gave last night, will be applauding and saluting their speech or will you be complaining and crying about it? We know what where talking about buster, apparently you have your head way up the GOP’s ass and using NO critical thinking, and resorting to group-think, etc. I’d rather vote for a dog-catcher or an employee from the ASPCA than vote for any of these two clowns running for office now.

        If Obama wins (godforbid), don’t comeback here and blame us, blame the stupid Republican party for hand-picking a weakling, a schmuck & a non-conservative like Romney against Obama, got it!

So the obama campaign announced that the white male vote was not worth going after and it seems the republicans agree.

    No, they just think those voters are chained up inside that dog crate on top of Romney’s car, that’s all.

    And they are mistaken about that.

    Statusmonkey on August 29, 2012 at 11:33 am

I can guarantee that Ann Romney does not believe what she said. As a Mormon in good standing she is absolutely pro family. However she is apparently willing to lie, and I can also guarantee she would not have made this speech without the approval of the Mormon Church (which means the Church will sanction lying, sort of a Mormon version of taquia).

I_AM_ME on August 29, 2012 at 11:01 am

DS you sing my song better than anyone. It’s comforting in these sad times.

I didn’t listen to the speech…any of them. I did watch via C-Span but I was listening to music or talk radio. She looked good and she seemed as if she was hitting it out of the park but I did not listen. Why should I? We know what the wimpy and cowed Republican establishment is all about. It’s nauseating.

In reading the transcript that you provided I am just as horrified as you are. I will NEVER see single mothers other than a scourge. They make me sick and are selfish and as you quite rightly pointed out they DESTROY America and all that is good about it.

It is so very troubling to see any female embrace any part of FAILED feminism. A fraud concept built on mental-cased pipe-dreams and fricken’ fantasy. I know it well…I lived it ’til I couldn’t bare it anymore.

Men. How sad I do feel for them. They are so neutered in 2012. Women are playing a losing game too. They think they can emasculate men and yet at the same time our biological drives compel us to them…and in the end they know they need men but don’t treat them well enough to have a healthy relationship and keep them for the right reasons. And women have gotten so bloody skanky these days I have been recently shocked how forward and aggressive and cheap they sell themselves for…and not for quality men either. Garbage in, garbage out.

Strange days have found us, that’s for sure!

Most white males are already voting Republican. This was simply an outreach to women. Yes, Debbie, all politicians are scum—no exceptions. Congrats on that finding!

Red Ryder on August 29, 2012 at 11:40 am

Why do politicians suck up for votes they aren’t going to get anyway? I listened to part of Mrs Romney’s speech last night, but got disgusted with it and had to turn it off. It was done in that sing songy air head tone of a high school valedictorian speech. Sickly sweet and disgusting.

RT on August 29, 2012 at 12:17 pm

Debbie are you sure that you’re not part Vulcan ’cause you just mind melded out of my head what I was telling a friend of mine at work today about Ann’s speech last night. I know that we must get rid of Odumbo and his nosey busy body harridan but c’mon. I got back from nightschool just in time to see Rick Santorum drone on about nothing. Then some black former lib Congressman makes his speech in which if I didn’t have homework I would’ve fallen asleep. Then Nikki Haley(whom I like)gets her turn leading up to Mitten’s wife. That’s where they really lost me. Does she really think that single moms rule and that men are just balless dipsticks. Maybe her hubby’s RINO buddies but not the average man. Somebody should tell her that single motherhood is nothing to be celebrated in this country or anywhere else. There are cases where the man dies or leaves and then the woman is stuck with the kids but for the most part they’re a selfish lot with their fembot attitudes towards men. Maybe some men (none that I know) took her speech and said “Oh gee whiz maybe Annie’s right”. I on the other hand could’ve disagreed more. I and my friends do everything that Ann says only the women do and then some. She is either misinformed or been told to pander for the womyn vote. Either way it was a crappy speech. Thankfully I fell asleep before Chrispy Creme Christy’s speech. I hear that it was just as bad.

Ken b on August 29, 2012 at 12:18 pm

Debbie-leh, not to worry, normal men don’t feel diminished when women praise each other. It’s basically like hearing a parent praise their child. Regardless of what they say, as long as a woman looks good men like them. And if Mrs. Munster thinks selling that crap will get Herman elected, it’s OK with me. People who take what politicians have to say seriously are sure to be dissapointed. I just want lower taxes, smaller government, and bigger mitzvah bombs.

Joel-Confederate Son on August 29, 2012 at 12:58 pm

Way to go Debbie – you’re completing your task in getting Obama re-elected. Sorry, you’re very confused!

CB: Cowards who cannot refute the facts always resort to ad hominem attacks and empty slogans and ideas. If it takes bashing American men and embracing far-left views to beat Obama, remind me exactly why the alternative that embraces those views is any better than Obama. Way to go, moron. You’re completing your task in making conservative, Constitutional, American values, like merit, eliminated from the debate. Uh, you’re the one confused here. DS

CB on August 29, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    CB–Debbie is apparently looking for perfection in all the wrong places. Politics is strictly a game for whores, and she expects to find St. Therese of Lisieux—or something.

    Not gonna happen. It has *always* been the lesser of two evils, although the choice is sometimes a little bit easier.

    If Robert Taft was conservative, pray tell who even begins to represent his values today.

    Red Ryder on August 29, 2012 at 2:06 pm

      RR, even if an election involves a choice between two evils, it does not follow that the less evil choice must be very evil. Voters have always used a refusal to vote as a means of forcing change. Those who renounce this tool give us the likes of McCain and Mittens.

      Oh, why do I bother?

      skzion on August 29, 2012 at 9:40 pm

Glad I didn’t watch; Mrs. Romney’a speech sounds like it was slightly more torturous than watching the Dodgers fall again to Colorado. Boy it’s getting tough to tell the ABO crowd from the liberals, they sure argue with the same bereft of logic, berating style. Keep telling it like it is Debbie!

Stephen Schochet on August 29, 2012 at 1:36 pm

This is exactly why I am not voting for Mitt Happens.

His wife is much as a liberal as him and the feminist rhetoric we heard from her last night was truly disgusting!

I may not have any place to go as a man but I sure as heck won’t vote for a liberal whose wife hates America’s men. Let me assure you, chopped liver I ain’t – what the party has to do to win the women’s vote is degrading and it will still lose. Badly!

And I still have my testicles. If this what the GOP has become today, a Betty Friedan male-hating club, thanks but not thanks!

I’m not that desperate to beat Obama in November. Ann Romney has done the impossible job of making Michelle Obama look like a moderate!

How on earth could you nominate Mitt Happens? Well last night we received our answer. Its not the answer of a party hungry for victory!

And the liberal feminist NOWsters who now run the GOP are truly the gift that keeps on giving. Debbie, you’re right – the ghost of Betty Friedan is laughing and conservatives don’t appear to realize it.

NormanF on August 29, 2012 at 2:03 pm

Actually, it’s (married) stay-at-home” moms who hold the country together. Of course we have a lot fewer of them than when I grew up, and they weren’t disparaged at every turn like they are today.

Tommy thomas on August 29, 2012 at 2:05 pm

Those who pander to Liberals @ the expense of any group – be it men, Jews, Conservatives, whatever – are forgetting that those people who get taken for granted still have the option of either staying home, or not voting for them.

I mean, there is the option of other parties (e.g. Constitutional Party, Loyalist Party, et al), Independent candidates, write-in candidates… What makes them think that the group they are taking for granted will still vote for them?

Infidel on August 29, 2012 at 2:39 pm


Men are already Republican voters.

Single moms are overwhelmingly Democratic voters. And if Ann Romney thinks throwing red meat to them will lure them away from Obama, she has no clue about politics!

When it comes to delivering government benefits, the Democrats can and will always do that job better than the Republicans. This is not a place where the GOP can compete by becoming a moderate version of the Democrats – the old FDR party.

But with men a minority in America today the voters who will decide the next President are mostly women. Its terrible philosophy but this is the kind of retail politics politicians think they need to offer to get the women.

And traditionally Tuesday night at GOP Conventions have been “Family Nights.” Only last night it was “The Single Mom Made America Great Night.”

NormanF on August 29, 2012 at 2:53 pm

Did anyone notice how Ann Romney tried to make is sound like she came from humble beginnings by saying she came from a small Michigan town where her dad became mayor. The town was Bloomfield Hills. Small yes. Humble no!!

Just Me on August 29, 2012 at 3:08 pm

Debbie and Mrs. Romney come from MI but they don’t look at things the same way to be sure.

That’s why Debbie is never running for public office again – the things she’d have to say to certain voters to win them wouldn’t be worth it.

And given what she’s written on this site – its going to brand her as being out of touch with today’s world.

If you think the Obamaconomy is tough, its even tougher to be a conservative these days.

NormanF on August 29, 2012 at 3:15 pm

I’ll be honest with all you here, I didn’t watch the convention last night, nor did I watch Ms. Romney’s militant-feminist speech, and I’m glad you forwarded Ms. Romney’s speech word-for-word Debbie, so I and all of us here can read what the woman said exactly in context.

If you think this convention sucks, wait til next weeks DNC, it’ll be 100 times worst than the RNC’s convention right now. And I to am not expecting conservative talk show host and conservative pundits to bring Ann Romney’s feminist speech to the table so that folks can make their conclusions, etc. If Michael Savage doesn’t point out Ms. Romney’s militant-feminist speech, I’m going to pity the guy.

Your also correct DS, if either Ms. Obama, Ms. DWS, Ms. Pelosi, Ms. Boxer, Ms. Clinton, etc. would’ve given a speech like what Ms. Romney did, I can freaking guarantee you that the entire right wing establishment would go bonkers and lose their minds and scream at the top of their lungs, but since it was Ann Romney who gave a speech like what you hear from NOW, Planned Parenthood, etc., the right isn’t either saying nothing or saying very little! And I won’t be surprised if any women at the DNC’s convention next week will give a militant-feminist speech?

“A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on August 29, 2012 at 3:19 pm

this is how the rino republicans try to keep the conservatives off the platform because they still don’t under stand that it was tea party conservatives who routed the dems in 2010. single parents and welfare have destroyed the black family in America now the dems want to destroy all families but the state.a single mother will be poor uneducated and more than likely to produce a criminal rather than a good has only to look at the current occupant of the white house to see how they turn out.bongo is a cheat, a liar, and an enemy of freedom.

BRUCE on August 29, 2012 at 3:59 pm

Growing up as a kid, I was a liberal who was conservative on a lot of topics. I could relate more to the left, but I always admired certain political figures of the right as being real MEN. But after last night, I really feel very apprehensive about where this country is going. I mean before this speech, my thinking was that Mitt is a guy with no guts and Paul Ryan just wants to be the Prom King. Now, when I think of the GOP I just think of Ann Romney. 15-20 Years ago, the image I had was more akin to characters like Josh Brolin in “No Country for Old Men” or the “True Grit” characters. Men who got things done. Now replace that with single mothers.

I mean does anyone else freak out a little? America’s two political parties consist of the Dems on one side, and single mothers on the other? If Romney wins, the last two GOP presidents will be Bush Jr, who cried about his presidency, and Mitt who has no balls?

Richard on August 29, 2012 at 4:53 pm

This speech was written by Mitt’s staff. A preview of what’s to come in a Romney White House.

Any one who still thinks he isn’t a liberal should have gotten a reality check with the speech his wife delivered last night.

NormanF on August 29, 2012 at 5:21 pm

Debbie, what’s the matter with you? Why do you insist on paying attention to what the politicians and their representatives are actually saying and doing? That is not what a “good” conservative media commentator is supposed to do.

The mantra is very simple: “Republicans good; Democrats bad.” And even after the elections, that mantra applies. So, let’s all get in line behind the Romney brand, and get him elected. And if his policies and actions should turn out to be virtually indistinguishable from Obama’s, we should all, nonetheless, continue to demonstrate brand loyalty, because, after all, “Republicans good; Democrats bad.”

For you Liberals/Leftists out there who follow the commentators on CNN and MSNBC, simply use my mantra above, but change ” “Democrats” to “Republicans,” and “Obama” to “Romney.” Then all will be perfect for you too.

Remember, folks. No thinking is necessary. In fact, it gets in the way of the program.

Ralph Adamo on August 29, 2012 at 5:45 pm

So many comments, so little time…

It took only 8 sentences into Ann’s speech and my pulse jumped. I heard the first of what proved to be many comments that seemed lifted out of 1970s NOW speeches: “I want to talk to you about that love so deep only a mother can fathom it — the love we have for our children and our children’s children.” She didn’t say, “I want to talk to you about a mother’s deep love.” No, she had to juxtapose it (by implication) with men. Men just don’t love as much as women. I have bristled, or been outright angered, by this sort of assertion since the ’70s and hearing this out of the Republican nominees’ wife’s mouth made my heart rate jump. This wasn’t what I expected. I was instantly on guard.

Mind you, I was already upset with the course of the convention. Apparently, it is the decision of the great and wonderful RNC wizards to keep the convention positive, not be a slam-fest. But if that is to be the course, you’d better have something to say.

Most of the speeches, especially early, ran off the same lines about the unemployment rate and debt, as if those are the only two issues (or even the most important ones – I think there were only two mentions of the constitution all evening).

If there was ever a convention when hard contrasts and no holds barred criticisms were justified however, this is it. I was wondering, “Seriously? With all of the theft of liberty and disregard for the Constitution and the rule of law, with all the damage done to our national security and ravaging of our military, is this all they can think of to talk about?” I was already very restless.

Contrary to some here, I did think Santorum did the best at addressing conservative issues, as limited in scope as his comments were. The governor of South Carolina was generally fine and Ted Cruz was solid. Artur Davis was interesting. But they weren’t really heavyweight speeches. Those were only partially satisfying and didn’t make up for the tone to that point.

Then up came Ann and any redemption that could be imputed by those speakers was lost and the rift between me and the Republican Party was ripped wider.

After following the first red flag comment with a few statements that seemed to equate men’s and women’s experiences regarding their lives and families, she did it again. It wasn’t good enough to acknowledge, even celebrate, the enormous contributions women make to their families. No, she had to do it at the expense of men.

“And if you listen carefully, you’ll hear the women sighing a little bit more than the men. It’s how it is, isn’t it?”

After the first comment (only a mother can fathom it), my wife looked at me and said, “That isn’t going to go over well.” After the second, I said, “She just lost me.”

And it only got worse from there, much worse. Until she rather belatedly got to her comments about her husband, almost every statement was some sort of comparison of women to men with the superiority of women highlighted. “It’s the moms who always have to work a little harder, to make everything right.

It’s the moms of this nation — single, married, widowed — who really hold this country together.”

“You know it’s true, don’t you? You’re the ones who always have to do a little more.

You know what it’s like to work a little harder during the day to earn the respect you deserve at work and then come home to help with that book report which just has to be done.”

Some of the slights to men were on the sly:
“We’re the mothers, we’re the wives, we’re the grandmothers, we’re the big sisters, we’re the little sisters, we’re the daughters.” No! Really? Women are the ones that make up those groups? I didn’t know! Now either this is totally inane and vacuous. Since this was a political (contrary to her initial denial) speech, inane and vacuous are certainly possible, but given the context, the implication was pretty clear: Since mothers and wives and sisters, et al, are women, ipso facto women are superior. This is straight out of the NOW playbook from the ’70s. Women are naturally superior.

Another: “You know what it’s like to sit in that graduation ceremony and wonder how it was that so many long days turned into years that went by so quickly.” No, men don’t experience those doleful moments of reverie when we think back on the first time those tiny fingers curled around our pinkys or that first word (often “ddad” or “no!” – hmmm, maybe there is a message there) or the pain of having to punish or the broken bones or – dare I write it – the sighs of seeing your daughter in her high school prom gown. No, mothers are the ones that wonder what happened to it all during the graduation ceremony. Why? Because men don’t care!

Finally, Ann’s speech gave up the subtleties and came right out and plainly stated its thesis: “You are the best of America. You are the hope of America. There would not be an America without you.” So women are the best of America (as opposed to the military being the finest) and women offer America its only real hope. I am woman, hear me roar…

The last sentence is painful in its obviousness.

After wrapping up by reinforcing that men don’t understand women (or just don’t understand, period, ’cause we’re dense – but hey, we’re good for being jesters), she finally got around to telling us about her wonderful husband, who by the way, we should vote for. At this, I turned to my wife and asked, after that speech, why should women vote for Romney or any man? They’re obviously inferior.

My wife generally disagreed with my assessment last night and this morning. After going through point by point and re-reading the speech, she told me she agrees that it was anti-male.

Do I feel lessened by Ann’s speech? No. Her words don’t change who I am. That isn’t the point, however. She felt a need to boost women, not by just highlighting the great things women do, but by stepping on men’s heads and twisting her heel. That is what the ’70s NOW crowd did. I wonder if Ann has nightmares of a fish riding a bicycle…

That brings up another point, if Republicans are going to present themselves as supporters of the philosophy of individual value and individual achievement, how does this fit in?

As Debbie and another commenter stated, the pandering to the female vote (which was very obvious apart from Ann’s speech – did you notice the use of the “her” pronoun in neutral sentences last night?) isn’t going to work. If you’re a feminist, why vote Republican when the Democrats are much further over on the spectrum? So thanks, Ann, for riling up the base again and not in a good way.

The really sad thing is that even though I don’t like Romney, their calculus is largely correct. There is nowhere else to go without handing an advantage to Obama. And anyone planning on voting for one of the tiny party candidates or not voting obviously does not view the threat to American that Obama poses as significant and dangerous as I do. As bad as I think Romney is, he isn’t a dedicated Constitutional republic hating, Muslim favoring, racist and Marxist.

My vote is purely one to get rid of the more serious and immediate threat. We’ll have to deal with Romney afterward.

Thanks to Debbie for once again giving voice to something important and (along with all those commenting) letting me know first thing today that my reaction wasn’t alone. Always enlightening.

Love you Debbie for standing up for American males. Dr. Laura is the only other woman I’ve heard who stands up for men in this country. Very few people know the extent that women in authority or some avenue of decision-making will give preference in hiring to a less-qualified woman over a man simply because they want a woman in the job. It has happened millions of times over the last four decades, but you will never hear anyone talk about it; you’ll never see it on “Sixty Minutes”. You won’t see it discussed on any cable news station, even Fox.

NormCBS on August 29, 2012 at 6:57 pm

If any one said things degrading and demeaning to women there or in the other convention there would be a political firestorm and it would have been the end of them.

I was thinking back to earlier this month this when Romney and the GOP band of establishment hypocrites demanded Todd Akin, the Republican candidate in MO, drop out of the the GOP race for remarks women found “offensive.”

But no one at the GOP convention is going to demand Romney quit the race because his wife made anti-male comments last night – a whole raft of them whereas Akin couldn’t get his thought about rape and abortion out in an way that made sense and at least Akin apologized for it and people still still piled on him because he was a man.

The double standard is sickening and no one is going to demand Ann Romney take her back her sexist and anti-male remarks AND apologize for making them! As it stands, the Republican Party thinks white men (an endangered species these days) can be thrown under the bus but heaven forbid we better do nothing to offend women who hate men!

Like I said, couldn’t any one have had one good word to say last night about American’s men? Apparently not because for the good of winning we must remind America’s men to go back to their place and shut up. No one would tell a woman to go back to the kitchen and be barefoot and pregnant!

In their acceptance of feminism and societal hatred of men, the Republicans have done a good deal more to say the family is unimportant, that husbands and fathers don’t exist in their world than any leftist could ever have dreamed of back in the 1970s. People keep telling us casually this is the most election in our lifetime but with this outrageous and contemptible attack on an entire gender for political gain, my view is they still don’t get it.

I would never do that to women and I don’t like it when this is done to men.

You people need to saddle up and watch some
of your old porn.
John Voight watching Beatty get porked should arouse you.
I love Ann’s laugh, it has a whinny to it.

Colonel Biteme on August 29, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    Hey Biteme I saw that movie and I have to tell you dude that the scene with Voight and Beaty didn’t do a thing for me. But since you seen to like old porn maybe you should go hang around the Democrat crapfest next week. I hear that they will have viewing booths full of your favorite movies. I do agree with you about Ann’s laugh but on the flip side of that at least she doesn’t sound like an angry wookie.

Where would Porky Christie be if the Government
didn’t build it?
If it wasn’t for being on the tit, he’d being chasing
ambulances or writing blogs for dummies.
The Porker made his bones chasing small time potato
chip gangsters, while Adelson and the real mob
robbed Madoff.

This whole situation with the Republicans is a deep seated problem who’s seeds were planted in the distant past and who’s most recent foul crop has been bearing visible fruit since the late 1950’s. I got out of high school and went to work in 1974 when the “recession” started and when all the women’s lib and affirmative action crap really started taking off. Back then, I thought that it would end up being just another fad, like all the “hippie” stuff, and couldn’t believe it when it hung on through the 80’s and 90’s and even picked up steam and shows no sign even today of going away. This crap has become part of our culture and has been for forty years or so. A lot of men are strongly against this sort of thing, but are not too vocal about it because of the repercussions and retaliation on the job and even personal life. A lot of women, even ones that don’t openly identify with feminism will shout down any man that speaks out on this, even if he is a loved one or relative, asking him “What have you got against women”. They label anti feminists as “anti woman”. `In politics, the entire left wing strongly backs feminism, affirmative action and just about anything anti white and anti male. The only people I know of that generally will speak out and take a stand against feminism and A.A. are conservative Republicans, right wingers, some libertarians, evangelical Christians, orthodox Jews (As far as I know) Muslims (But they have sick in head issues with all women as we all know) and the various fringe group racists and racial separatists. The average person does not consider any of the above mentioned to be “mainstream”. This is a BIG problem that, other than relying on God, I can’t say I know what the solution is. In my personal life, I don’t willingly cooperate with or aid in any way anyone who promotes feminism,affirmative action and all the other associated garbage.

Norman, you are right that men already tilt GOP, but more women support (D) over (R) than the #men who support (R) over (D). However, my point – the male vote can be turned off from (R) to (I), if attacks like Ann Romney’s happen.

The thing I was objecting to above was we voters allowing candidates to take us for granted. Yeah we support them to the extent that they needn’t exactly campaign amongst us to get our votes. But if they think that betraying what we stand for will go unchallenged, they are horribly mistaken.

Or at least, should be. Sad thing – too many Conservatives keep voting for the GOP despite betrayals like this, so they should not be surprised that they’re taken for granted. They’re begging to be.

She never had me, Debbie. I won’t trust a liberal like Mr. and Mrs. Romney! I don’t know how the RNC was when you were younger and involved in the Reagan years, but todays RNC is hardly what you would call proud Reagan Conservatives (which another lesson they have apparently not learned is that conservatism never changes).

I dispise the Republican party (or at least what passes for 80-90% of our public figures). This country needs God’s help!

You know the fastest route to the local emergency room and which doctors actually answer the phone when you call at night.

Why would any parent need to know “the fastest route to the local emergency room?” Certainly ANYBODY knows the local hospital(s) in his area. Is she talking about single moms who let their kids run wild and the kids are CONSTANTLY getting into drunk driving accidents or getting stabbed in fights? You want to know how often I was in a hospital emergency room with my mother, of blessed memory? ONCE!!!!

Miranda Rose Smith on August 30, 2012 at 3:03 am

Really not happy with the Romneys at all, but she is not running for office. I am for a tiny Federal Govt. and let the individual states have their central govt. That way if I do not like the politics of the state that I reside in, I can move. No one is willing to tear down this wall of Bloated Federal Govt. That is very sad to me.
Will never vote for hussein obama.

MoanerLisa on August 30, 2012 at 4:13 am

GEE WIZ!!! I do not see where she said that its good to have single Moms, just that we DO HAVE THEM!!!
Does she say getting married and raising kid with their Father isn’t a great plan?
Debbie, in today’s world, Men want to be Queens and women want to be Kings! Its messed up, BUT we have to get everyone on board and away from the muslim in the white house!
WHY NOT JUST CONCENTRATE on that and AFTER Romney is elected, start to complain about him????
GET obama OUT!

Suzanne Weinstein on August 30, 2012 at 11:11 am

    Suzanne…couldn’t have said it better. I’m tired of all this whining and bitching about Romney and whoever else. Nobody’s ever going to be satisfied because they’re always looking to find fault.

    I’m not a big Romney fan either but the bottom line is that we need to get that Marxist mope and his ass clowns out of office; then we can begin work on getting this country back to where it should be. If the malcontents want to bicker about Romney and/or his family, ideas, et al then have at it.

    IceNoMore on August 30, 2012 at 11:40 am

    Cuz “AFTER” never comes.

Ann’s speech probably did suck. I’m not watching the convention because I know it will only depress me. My general opinion, based on some of the comments here, is that you’re giving yourselves far to little credit. What I mean is that back in some very dark days, 2006-2008, when the bolshevik democrats took control of both the House and Senate, we did some very amazing things. We had an asshole president who bragged that since his party had gotten its asses kicked in the 2006 midterms that he could now get his Amnesty Bill passed. Do you remember that? The democrat majority, with the full blessing of idiots like McCain, Graham, and other moron republicans, together with Bush, could not get it passed. Why? Because of you! Remember McCain and the others, the ones who were supposed to be on “our side” calling us xenophobes and bigots? Same thing for global warming type shit legislation. They were all salivating to get it passed but couldn’t, because of you! The Harriet Myers Supreme Court nomination? You fought them tooth and nail on this stuff until 2010 when the Bolsheviks were soundly defeated in the mid-terms. If the identity thief in chief gets re-elected it won’t matter how hard we fight, he’ll just rule by fiat. We don’t need to be scared of Romney if he gets elected. He needs to be scared of us! If he fucks with us, the way W and those other idiots did, then he won’t know whether to shit or go blind after we ramp it up again.

Ever since Benedict Robert’s ruling on behalf of Obamacare Ive been weary to the point of giving up. He drove a stake through the heart of the Constitution. There seems no point in continuing the struggle but we can’t just bend over and take it up the ass. Remember Victor Laslo’s line in Casablanca? “We might as well question why we breath. If we stop breathing we die. If we stop fighting the whole world dies”.

CornCoLeo on August 30, 2012 at 11:53 am

Romney is our guy to run against Obama, get over it. He’s not my choice, but he is THE choice. I would vote for a ham sandwich instead of Obama. We all have to look at the big picture. If you think there’s no difference between the two, then don’t voye because you’re not being realistic. Have you been paying attention the last 3+ years? Get a grip. The first step in taking back the country is to get rid of Obama, Reid, Pelosi, et al, then fumigate the federal government and clean out all the rats.

JeffT on August 30, 2012 at 1:39 pm


    Would you vote for Barney Frank if HE was the nominee?

    And you believe that ROMNEY is going to fumigate Washington? Riiiight.
