Mitt Romney and his campaign have been on the offensive for days, attacking Democrats and President Obama for not respecting motherhood as work. Sparked by comments made by Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen suggesting Ann Romney might not be the most qualified expert on women’s economic woes because she’s “never worked a day in her life,” the Romney campaign seized on the opening to accuse the Democrats of waging a “war on moms.”

But the attacks don’t gibe with comments Romney made just three months ago on the campaign trail. In January, Romney touted his proposal as governor of Massachusetts to raise the amount of work required of parents on welfare so that they could “have the dignity of work.”

The comment was uncovered and aired on MSNBC’s “Up w/Chris Hayes,” Sunday morning.

“I wanted to increase the work requirement,” said Romney in New Hampshire. “I said, for instance, that even if you have a child 2 years of age, you need to go to work. And people said, ‘Well that’s heartless.’ And I said, ‘No, no, I’m willing to spend more giving day care to allow those parents to go back to work. It’ll cost the state more providing that daycare, but I want the individuals to have the dignity of work.’”

But it was this very idea, that raising children is not “work,” that started the Romney campaign’s “war on moms” attack against Democrats this week. Immediately following Rosen’s comments on CNN Wednesday night, the Romney campaign kicked into high gear attacking Rosen and defending motherhood as “hard work.”

The amount of flip-flopping, negativity, and desperation in the Romney campaign is incredible.

Having a paying job gives a woman more economic opportunities and more financial freedom, which is why more and more women strive for it. Both types of moms are certainly "working moms".

Now, this is an actual policy proposal spoken from the lips of Mitt himself.  Voters will definitely feel more concerned about things like this than anything Hillary Rosen might say.

Oh please this isn't a flip-flop. No where did he criticize stay at home moms. MSNBC once again shows how much of a joke of a news network its is.

But they clearly don't. There's been much more discussion of Rosen's comment than this particular incidence of flip-flopping, pretty much everywhere. Will the flip-flopping, all taken together, be a bigger factor in the campaign than Rosen's comment? Yes. But Rosen's comment is likely to actually do Romney some real, albeit short-term good.

Yeah, I guess saying that they have no dignity can actually be considered praising them.

This election cycle is building up to be one of the funniest things I've witnessed.


We started at

A War on Religion (Anti-Democrats) -------> A War on Women ( Anti-Republicans) -------> A War on Moms ( Anti-Democrat)

What's next?
