President Obama was campaigning in Rhode Island when he began dissembling on the choice some women have to make between raising a family and earning to their full potential in their careers. He probably shouldn’t have gone off on this little rabbit trail, because by doing so he unmasked the wholesale contempt the Democrat Party holds for the average American woman.
Sometimes, someone, usually mom, leaves the workplace to stay home with the kids, which then leaves her earning a lower wage for the rest of her life as a result. And that’s not a choice we want Americans to make.
The remarks come after Obama quickly backtracked earlier in the week when he implied that Michelle Obama doesn’t work. “I mean, I should point out, she is working really hard now as first lady and doesn’t get paid, but that’s a whole other thing. But — because I didn’t want her to think, like, what, I’m not working? Michelle works. I promise you.”
Because really, how could a woman of any intelligence, fortitude and resolve have any desire to “JUST” be a homemaker? The Democrats hold a deep disdain for woman who would purposefully and actively choose to stay at home and care for their families. To the Democrat, your profession should be the most fulfilling thing about your life… not the family you’ve built with your mate.
The Democrat motto for women of childbearing age is, “Let the kids be raised by the state, and go out there and earn some income for us to tax.”
When you think about it, it is simply astounding the level of disapproval the average Democrat politician must have for conservative women.
A word of encouragement for my working moms: You are actually more productive than your childless peers.
That’s the conclusion of a recent study from the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, which found that over the course of a 30-year career, mothers outperformed women without children at almost every stage of the game. In fact, mothers with at least two kids were the most productive of all.
