re: #184 Killgore Trout

I don’t think it’s fair to invalidate her opinion on women’s issues just because she’s a stay at home mom. Imagine if a man had said that Mrs Romney’s opinions on working mothers was invalid because she was a stay at home mom. It would be terribly insulting. I’m sure Mrs Romney is a decent and intelligent person and her opinions are reasonably well informed and thought out.
I’m also fairly certain that she isn’t Mitt’s sole source of information about issues regarding working mothers so it’s not really politically important. He said something nice about listening to his wife’s advice, I don’t think it’s a big deal.

Again..who said her opinion was invalid?

Sure, she has an opinion but she shouldn’t be his top adviser on all women’s issues, as she has led a pretty different life than most average American women. She may not be in touch with struggling working moms/women. That is really all Rosen said, albeit awkwardly. OK?
