commented on President Obama's Attack on Stay-at-Home Moms: Now with 100% More Context

I’m one of those stupid people who “overreacted” to Obama’s comment. However, I did see it with some context, and then I read more context on your blog, and then I read more context on Snopes. (i’m not willing to sit down and listen to or read the whole thing, because when he speaks it all just sounds the same to me. I get bored to tears.) But now that you have given me even more of his speech, I am even more outraged! When Obama said “that’s not a choice I want Americans to make” the choice he was referencing was clearly between either staying home and foregoing income to raise your child or paying someone else to raise your child. Apparently, in Obama’s America, raising kids should be cost and sacrifice-free! Or rather someone else should pay and sacrifice to raise your child. I already sacrificed to raise my own children, and now they are in college. So now I’m apparently the “someone else” who is supposed to pay to raise other’s children. It makes so much more sense when you put it in context. I’m glad he’s not bashing stay at home moms who sacrifice to bear the cost of raising their own children. He just wants us to sacrifice twice! Thanks for setting idiots like me straight! When my daughters have children, can I send you the bill for their daycare? I’d hate to see my precious darling’s sacrifice at all for their own children the way their mother was forced to!
