Women scam men by claiming it is hard work. It was – 50 years ago.
When Ann Romney, wife of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, claims she chose to be an at-home mom, this raises issues. Most women are not rich enough to have that choice. Also, this makes Ann a gross underachiever, because even women who have that option can and do balance careers with parenting.
Normally the wife is off-limits in a campaign. That is, until the candidate claims she is his chief economic advisor – someone who never earned a paycheck.
Yes, Ann Romney has had it tough having to raise five boys with a $200 million checkbook, trying to squeeze in charity work and horseback riding. We should all have it so tough.
