Blogging Countdown 12/15 #4: Sorry, No Singles

Postby Trekkie » Fri Dec 15, 2006 2:44 pm

In an interview with People magazine, First Lady Laura Bush says that while Secretary of State Condi Rice would make an excellent President, she would not win because she is an only child, is not married and has very few "supportive" friends, all qualities Mrs. Bush feels are necessary to the job.

Bloomberg News' Margaret Carlson joins Keith.

I don't like her either. But Laura was really out of line with her remarks.

Condi is pure evil. But anybody who thought the Repugs would ever consider a black woman for the nomination is smokin' shoe leather. :lol:

I've often been suprised by the level of hostility shown by conservative women towards women who opt for career over family.

It's akin to the level of hostility shown by many "feminists"to those women who choose to stay home with their children.

That's quite a generalization billy, but true feminists believe in women being able to do whatever fulfills them--whether that entails working outside the home or in it. And FYI, every mother is a working mother.

I have been a stay at home mom for the majority of my time as a mom, and I have never felt any hostility from the moms that work outside the home, that I have met. Most are envious of our families ability to be able to have one parent at home. What I do notice, however, is that alot of stay at home moms that I know now are very judgmental towards women who do work. I hear comments all the time about the fact that it is because moms choose to work outside the home that has caused the downfall of families. I think people tend to be judgmental of those that choose a different path, partly because it makes them feel better with their choice. Nothing to do with the politics of feminism though. Just insecurity rearing it's ugly head once and a while.

I was responding to Mr roser's ridiculous generalization.

Keithlite, I've been a stay-home mom for 11 years and it's 99.9% worth it. I think it was "Dr." Laura who started the working mom bashing about 15 years ago. I do believe when the "mama's" happy, everybody is happy! Ain't that right???

Guilty BB. I should have said "some conservative women". I haven't seen the type of hostility you describe for a couple of decades. Most feminists just want women to have the choice to live their lives as they see fit. The Dr. Lauras of the world blame the downfall of society on selfish working mothers. Of course she grants herself an exeption.
