The country's worst PR adviser Hillary Rosen and the head of NOW, Terry O'Neill, are arguing that Ann Romney can't understand the problems that working women face because she doesn't "have the kind of life experience and if not, the imagination, to really understand what most American families are going through right now." So their point is that the wife of a man who has been successful financially can't understand the problems of most American families because her family is in a different income bracket.
Okay, if the argument is that people who have never experienced what others have experienced can't understand or speak out on those sorts of issue, let's just go with that. How about if we also say that no politician who has never met a payroll can not speak out on anything concerning business or the economy? I'd be willing to sacrifice Ann Romney's voice on the economy if politicians like Barack Obama and Joe Biden were likewise permanently silenced from speaking out about business and the economy.
