    Hilary Rosen, who claimed Ann Romney never worked a day in her life was on "This Week" on ABC saying that straight couples were tearing down the institution of marriage. She claimed that because 1 in 3 marriages end in divorce it proves that straight couples don't make the best marriages. Never mind that she's a lesbian and has switched partners and has adoptive children from the union.

    Seems to me the Obama Administration wants to make straight couples out to be bigots, strange, abnormal, whatever negative connotation you can dream up.

    So is this to be the new normal?

    Not only is this short-sighted but is is also discriminatory. Using a one-sided statistic to claim that straights are screwing up the institution of marriage while forgetting that statistics show that Gay couples stay together an average of 6 years while straights stay together an average of 18 according to a study published in Time Magazine back in 2004. Behavior: Do Gay Couples Have An Edge? - TIME

    I'm not saying that one is better than the other, but I think Hilary Rosen is. It appears that the left wants us to think that straights are odd and Gays are more acceptable, more admirable, more reliable. Seems to me they want to turn the tables on their targets, straight people. Guess being a liberal means you're black, Muslim, a feminist, and are also Gay......or at least support all of the above. If you're not a liberal or an Obama supporter you're a hater.

    Honestly.....who's really showing hatred here now.

    'Hate' is now the SOP of Democrats. Anyone who disagrees with them is demonized. Frankly, it's laughable... and pathetic.

    Honestly...Rosen isn't an Obama spokesperson. Another lie by Mudwhistle. Raise your hand if you're surprised.

    Okay......if you say so.

    Guess we have to go back and prove it again because some folks refuse to face the truth.

    Doesn't matter that this is the implication the Obama Administration is currently pushing.

    Intelligence is ruining marriage. People getting married, and people staying married has been on a consistent downward trend for about the last 100 years. Numbers don't tell political lies.

    Karl Rove started a pretty fashionable trend. Demonize with truthiness.

    "Romney spokesman says killing Bin Laden was a mistake".

    Since that is what you think and you support Romney; can we just make that jump in logic and tell the same lie you just told?
