    We were talking about Hillary Rosen's comments in another thread when the following exchange ensued


    Which led me to the "Hillary Rosen" standard. Basically she is saying that those with "no experience have no business advising" on issues they have no experience in.

    So who is unqualified to do their current job under Hillary Rosen's standard. I'll provide 3, you guys provide some more.....they don't have to be party specific as there are plenty of politicians, in fact almost all of them, on both sides that do not qualify under her "standards"

    1) Obama is NOT QUALIFIED to talk about the conservatives because he has been a liberal his whole life.
    2) Nancy Pelosi is NOT QUALIFIED to talk about issues affecting the poor/middle class because she has lived the rich lifestyle her whole life
    3) Harry Reid is NOT QUALIFIED to talk about christian issues because he has been a mormon his whole life

    She was just gruging up what Obama and the DNC told her to say.

    When it backfired, they left her to hang.

    What a horrendous theory, with so many holes.

    1st hole: she could expose that they told her to say it, as opposed to apologizing in heindsight. That's just #1 - the most obvious one.

    I'm not sure if they told her to say it or not but I do know that Hillary Rosen has derogatory intentions towards stay at home moms from her comment. I also know she put up a new standard that most modern day politicians can not live up to.

    So who is unqualified, in your opinion, under the Rosen standard?

    If she exposed that she was told to say this, her entire career is over. Including being employed by any company controlled by a democrat. She understood going in that she would be expected to take one for the team if the mission were unsuccessful. Her reward will come later.
