    Do you agree that Ann Romney, as a stay at home mom, has never worked a day in her life?

    Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen stated the following on Anderson Cooper's program yesterday, "Guess what, (Mitt Romney's) wife has actually never worked a day in her life. She's never really dealt with the kinds of economic issues that a majority of the women in this country are facing."  Do you agree that staying home to raise five boys is not work?  Why or why not?

    Baloney! She raised five sons to adulthood. If that's not work, then what is??!!! Kudos to Ann Romney!

    Actually Hilary Rosen is correct that she hasn't worked a day in her life, she has worked every day, twenty four hours a day, 365 days with no sick time, no vacation time, no overtime ...  Of course Ann Romney works, she works harder than Hilary Rosen has her entire life!!!!!

    First and foremost raising kids is hard work and it doesn't stop after 8 or 10 hours. It is 24/7.   As Mitt's marriage partner, I think we can assume she was involved in some of his business decisions and also very aware of what his businesses were about.

    I supose it depends on one's attitude to work.  Household management is probably the hardest and most important job there is.

    anyone who says a stay at home mom doesn't work needs their heads checked. the only way i would agree they don't work is if it was some rich lady with either no kids or has a nanny and maids to do everything.

    5 boys, 3 girls, one of each.....raising kids and staying on a budget without a second income is a full time job.  Power to the stay at homes!!  Oh, and power to those who do both, that's pretty damn difficult as well.  I've done both, and they are both very challenging.  Great question!!

    Once sourced out what I did and how much it would cost my husband to replace me.   I am the household manager, accountant/ bookkeeper, chef, project manager, custodial service, laundry service and contractor for home improvement projects. I could go on:)  Kudos to the amazing women that have added an outside job to all the above.  But even wealthy stay at home moms have to manage their households and attend to their children.  I only have three boys; believe me Ann has worked if she has five boys.

    I believe stay at home mom's and dad's is work. They have to plan meals, raise the kids, transport kids, meet budgets, be doctor mom/dad, do the laundry, keep up with the house and the list goes on....And if it's a single mom or dad raising a family it's even harder! But having said that, I don't believe Ann Romney faced the same tasks. She more then likely had nannies, butlers, maids, drivers and spent a lot of her time at charitable events. Money wasn't a issue either and probably had staff doing the food shopping and accountants doing the books. So where I agree maintaining a home is hard work, I seriously doubt Ann Romney could even come close to relating to the average housewife or househusband! And for her to act like she can is pure hogwash!
