Remember when Grandma warned you not to “make a mountain out of a mole hill” or it would get you into trouble?  The Democrat machine might have crashed into the side of their own manufactured mountain.  They manufactured the war on women that never took place, and drudged up the sexually promiscuous Sandra Fluke as their hero. 

Then they manufactured a race war, and they have all the love and beauty of Sharpton, Farrakhan, and Jackson on the face of that mountain.  But their favorite manufactured mountain is that of class warfare.  This one works well for them, even in a tough economy of their own creation.  But Americans are waking up to an election on the horizon, and they are not seeing themselves reflected in the chosen heroes of the left.

Hilary Rosen, a Democrat strategist took a turn at the wheel of the class warfare train last night, and crashed it right into the side of the carefully constructed class warfare mountain.  While trying to define Ann Romney as a woman of leisure, she went too far.  She said “Ann Romney has never worked a day in her life.” 

Ann Romney, however blessed because of her family’s dedication to hard work, good business acumen and budgeting, has raised 5 boys.  She chose to stay at home and raise them, even after she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and Cancer.  She has campaigned alongside her husband for decades (that is work!), and she has done so all with an air of graciousness that has made her “more likable” than her husband in the eyes of the American electorate. 

Did she have help? Probably.  House keepers?  Check.  Spa appointments? Probably.  But should women across the country aspire to less?  Wouldn’t it be nice if most women in America had all that?  As American women look at the business leader who took Ann Romney to that great place, they might just prefer a President who worked for his wife and family to that end, rather than a President who truly has never even held a job in the private sector, met a budget, or had anything of luxury not funded by taxpayers.

To attack the candidate is one thing, but to attack the role of women in their families as Ms. Rosen did, was quite another.
