Mitt was born into wealth. Ann was born to a business owner, then married a man who was , as already mentioned, born into wealth.

They are extremely fortunate by virtue of their birth to have been born with advantages that the vast majority of people do not have.
Yes, yes, we know that the President is working hard to consolidate support among female voters -- but Obama adviser Hilary Rosen's remarks about Ann Romney "never work[ing] a day in her life" are cynical, shameful, appalling, divisive and above all . . . ignorant.    They constitute the newest iteration of the long-running, ugly and gratuitous left-wing attack on women who have made the very important choice to stay home in order to raise their children themselves.

Perhaps the most insulting implication of Rosen's remarks (from which she shows no sign of retreating)...
