Skip to comments.Former Obama Official Attacks Ann Romney: 'No Empathy For People'
Posted on 05/20/2012 7:50:09 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest
Yet another Obamaoid has joined the Ann Romney-bashing brigade. Hilary Rosen, with her "never worked a day in her life" line, was infamously first. As documented at NewsBusters, the president of NOW subsequently derided Ann Romney as lacking in "life experience" and "imagination". Then, feminist author Michelle Goldberg attacked Ann as "insufferable," her writing as "creepy," and even compared her to Hitler and Stalin.
Latest to join the all-women lineup of Ann bashers: Betsey Stevenson. A former top economist in the Obama administration, appearing on Chris Hayes's MSNBC this morning, Stevenson accused Ann, along with Mitt, of "really having no empathy for people."

One more Obamaoid attacking Ann Romney. Ping to Today show list.
The Democrats do this stuff all the time, and no one bats an eye. If a Republican hints at any criticism of a family on the other side, it's time for "Oh! Oh! That crosses the line! I can't believe you went there!"
The double standard is tiresome.
What an absurd statement. And she's an economist, not a social worker?
American conservatives really are in a tricky position, because their opposition is fundamentally a bunch of crazy people.
She’s just green with envy.
I corrected your comment for spelling and grammar.
The double standard is tiresome.
Obama Hisself: Lay off my wife.
Mitt needs to step up and do the same.
It doesn’t look like Ms. Stevenson is following the White House healthy eating guidelines. She has no empathy for calories.
Well, one could say the Faux First Lady never had a job that wasn’t largesse or a kickback to Obama for being a Senator.
Likewise, one could say that her education (given to her) was not used (and even surrendered when she voluntarily surrendered her license to practice).
One could say that the Faux First Lady isn’t a patriot because she was never proud of her country until her career partner became a pResidential candidate.
One could say that the Faux First Lady isn’t in touch with the American Citizen because she is too busy galavanting all over the world on lavish, taxpayer-funded, gala vacations.
One could say that the Faux First Lady surely isn’t in touch with the fashion mores of the working women in this country because her fashion tastes run more towards Zimbabwe meets Barnum & Bailey Circus Tents.
And, finally, one could say the Faux First Lady is supremely hypocritical in her enforcement (via her husband’s agreeing sychophant administration) of dietary regulations for our young in schools when she sports a rear end that is worthy of a ‘lead’ and ‘chase’ car sported with WIDE LOAD signs.
I know, and it really is tragic. The basic premise of a two party system is that both parties bring something reasonable to the table, so that you have a steel sharpening steel effect. When one party is crazy you have a real problem.
Oh, the irony.
This will not work for the Demonic-rats. However, it does lay the groundwork for Mitt to start attacking Obama in relationship to his past associates, mentors, racism in the Judicial Department under Holder, the use of Air Force aircraft to become Michelle's private taxi service for multiple vacations etc. etc. etc.
Mitt has shown in the Primaries that he is capable of playing hardball. He will with Obama when the time is right.
A “top economist in the Obama administration” is an oxymoron.
Seems to me genuinely caring about people would involve a long, honest look at one’s economic policies, followed with an honest admission that said policies are not working, and finally, that caring for people requires the immediate abandonment of said policies in favor of something that will work.
That is, of course, if we are putting people ahead of ideology?
My guess is the Romneys have given more aid to needy people in one year than this woman has given in two lifetimes.
She is also fat and homely—typical lib female.
I particularly liked your description of Mooch-elle’s fashion taste!
Never. Sorry, but, never. That is the double-standard under which we live. After the horrid attacks on Sarah Palin and her family, including minor children, there are no rules anymore about attacking family members, even children. At least, on the Republican side. Everyone is fair game.
I do find this politically stupid, however, since Ann Romney seems to be Mitt's best asset (which is why she is being attacked) because she is well liked by the general public. Rather like Laura Bush was very well liked by the American public. I just don't see attacking her as being beneficial to the Obama campaign.
I'm puzzled as to why you felt compelled to change "no one" to "nobody"?
My thesaurus suggests that they're quite equivalent:
no one shed a tear when he was fired: nobody, not a soul, not anyone, not a single person, never a one, none.
Seems to me that the choice should be left to personal preference.
Grammar nannies don’t need to be right, they just can’t help themselves.
Altho I didn’t know Laz was one. Now, HG, on the other hand.
That's the sound of something flying over your head.
You need to listen for the whoosh, too.
