I think both choices should be respected, but the only issue I have is when women who don't work discuss their domestic contributions as if working women don't make any. I am talking about comments like, "It's hard work grocery shopping, doing the laundry, dropping the kids off..." Who do they think does those things in working women's houses? Most working moms do NOT have nannies and/or housekeepers. They are grocery shopping after work with their kids in tow, not while their kids are in school....they don't have that choice because they are not free when their kids are in school. They do laundry late at night not while their kids are in school...they don't have that choice because they are not free when their kids are in school.

And, nobody is against women who decide to stay home. It's just that most women who stay home to raise children don't have a maid, cleaning lady, cook and nanny for the kids as Ann Romney did. They lose a salary and adapt their spending to fit one income. Most women who work outside the home do so because they HAVE to. I grew up in a family of 10 kids (yes, we were Catholic). My mom really was a saint. Ann Romney couldn't hold a candle to her. My mom had a college degree in Journalism from Univ. of Minnesota and was asked to be the communications director for the Manhattan Project. She declined because she was already engaged to my dad, and the very secretive way they asked her left it clear that she would have to remain unmarried during this period of development on the atomic bomb. But that's how good she was. So, no, Ann Romney doesn't have a clue what other women sacrifice in order to follow their values of being a stay-at-home mom.

Conservative pundits attack women everyday - I have never heard Romeny once apologize for those remarks like the head of the RNC comparing women to caterpillars. The war of women is real. Just take a look at all the anti-women policies that are being passed across the country by republican legislatures. Arizona is leading the list. The Romney team could not even answer a simple question of whether he supports equal pay for women....people need to do some research and make sure they understand how all the policies being created are impacting women. Romney supports the Ryan plan which is very anti-women....I am not surprised Obama has a 20 point advantage when it comes to women because Romney is clueless.

I have three siblings who are all Republicans. I am a retired high school/college bio-chemistry teacher who has taught in many countries and many universities. My sister is superintendent of schools, another is an anesthetist, another is a physician's wife. I also have a PhD brother and his wife is a science teacher with a master's degree. None of us support the DNC's idea of assault on women and as a matter of fact, we all view this as an asinine way for Obama to try and garner votes. This is more than ridiculous. None of our daughters nor their daughter support this. None of the daughter in laws support this and we are talking again of women who are physicists, architects, civil engineers, doctors, and nurses. So all in all you score zero with a large group of educated Republican woman. I am a 71 year old Republican female. I have three siblings who are all Republicans.

Being the wife of such a rich man, I feel like she had plenty of help from maids, cooks, nannys, etc.... Most stay at home moms are very hard working individuals, but most American households don't have millions of dollars in the bank. My mother and father were both immigrants. Both of them worked and raised my brother and I to be good people. The difference between my mom and Romney's wife is that my mom always had to work within a very tight budget.
