The lamestream media will do their best to spin, deflect and rationalize these God-awful comments made by DNC consultant Hilary Rosen last night, and the Obama White is already doing their best to distance themselves from her, but the facts speak for themselves: they just hate conservative women.
A Democratic consultant with ties to the Obama administration sneering that Ann Romney “never worked a day in her life” is an opportunity for the Romney campaign, but a small problem in the big picture. In the big picture, women who are unable to find work in Obama’s economy are a bigger one.
Having said that, White House visitor logs indicate that “Hilary Rosen” visited the White House 35 times.
Gen. David Petraeus, head of our efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the current CIA director, nine times.
Further perspective: Energy Secretary Stephen/Steve Chu visited 16 times. (Guests are listed by name, not by title, so it is theoretically possible these totals count a separate person with the same name. In the case of Chu, I’m presuming he is the one listing of “Steve Chu” as well as the 15 “Stephen Chu” listings.)
Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki has visited 19 times.
Former CIA director and current Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, 12 times.
Perhaps most surprisingly, the name “Joseph R. Biden” appears . . . 6 times.
At least Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner managed to get into the White House more frequently than Rosen, but not by much. He has visited 40 times.
So the notion that Rosen is just some Democrat talking head, completely disconnected from the Obama administration and campaign is . . . not plausible.
