A woman’s place

This is for you heartless liberal fools who think Ohio Gov. John Kasich and other Republicans, just because they want to take away women’s reproductive rights, aren’t sensitive to women’s needs:

Republican Gov. John Kasich of Ohio said Wednesday at a Romney campaign rally that his wife was at home doing laundry while he gave political speeches…

“…It’s not easy to be a spouse of an elected official,” Kasich continued. “You know, they’re at home, doing the laundry and doing so many things while we’re up here on the stage getting applause, right? They don’t often share in it. And it is hard for the spouse to hear the criticism and to put up with the travel schedule and to have to be at home taking care of the kids. And where is the politician? Out on the road…”

I guess if you close your eyes and wish real hard, it’s almost possible to believe marriage today is like it was in those 1950s sitcoms. The last thing the Kasichs of the world want to deal with is the reality of domestic life in a wrecked economy, more than a half-century after Leave It To Beaver.

Something tells me Kasich and his homeys didn’t read The New York Times Magazine cover story about real life in 2012:

…As the usual path to the middle class disappears, what’s emerging in its place is a nascent middle-class matriarchy, in which women… pay the mortgage and the cable bills while the men try to find their place…

    That putz is trying to trash this state one community and school district at a time. But at least there’s no shortage of tax breaks for the rich and big companies. I can’t wait for the sale of the Ohio Turnpike and the state prisons so the rest of the state’s financial problems will be solved. When it comes tosolving or helping with the problems of anyone not in his social/economic class he’s as specific as Romney Hood and Friar Lyin’ Ryan.
