Hilary Rosen stepped in a hornets nest this week. The Democratic strategist said Mitt Romney’s wife “never worked a day in her life.” This reminded me of another Hillary. Mrs. Clinton said in 1992 she could have stayed home and baked cookies. Mothers who chose to stay home with their young children do some of the toughest work in the world. Some suggest what is meant is a mom does not get paid. Well, I understand a check does not get deposited every two weeks. However, the payoff in the life of a child is big time.
People say some stupid things in public. Believe me, I have done it. Warning! Do not pick on moms. These are some tough ladies. And they work more than 9 to 5.
