Roseanne Barr on Ann Romney: A Clueless Liar!

by at . Comments

Comedian slash sort-of presidential candidate Roseanne Barr is laying into Mitt Romney's wife, Ann, over her recent remark that being a mom was her full-time job.

It's not that Barr supports Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen's comment (and subsequent apology) criticizing Ann for having "never worked a day in her life."

It's just that Ann's claim of raising five kids on her own is BS, Roseanne says.

Roseanne's Nuts

"Mrs. Mitt Romney claims to have worked her toned ass off, raising five Romney males all on her own, as privileged wives often do ... but, no, Ann, I call bulls--t on your Big Mama story, girlfriend," Barr wrote in a column for The Daily Beast.

Barr went on criticizing Romney for claiming she did it all solo, with the exception of a little assistance from a maid who would come in a couple of hours a week.

Roseanne writes that Ann is basically full of it:

"Of course Mrs. Mitt Romney [doesn't know] the name of the 'cleaning lady,' because like 99 percent of rich people, they are oblivious to those women who do work outside the home, even when they work inside the home of the Romney family."

"I say let's find that 'cleaning lady' (if she is even documented) and ask HER how many hours she worked per week over the years," concluded Barr.

There you go. It's not exactly Ted Nugent going off on Barack Obama, but this is certainly a fiery, unexpected and one-sided celebrity political feud.

Well Miss Jessica,considering they want to be in the White House I'd say they NEED to be in touch with the real people!!! Great they are wealthly but the job they want clearly they have no understanding of what the people want. Jealous has nothing to do with it. How old are you? Nevermind!!

I am so sick of the whole Romneys-are-rich-scumbags-who-are-out-of-touch-with-reality crap. I thought we loved success stories in this country? When did we become a bunch of jealous, entitled, rich-bashing people? Who cares that Romney is wealthy... (You know, unlike the Kennedys or the Kerrys. HA!) Struggling Americans should want to strive towards that or hell, want to do even better than them!

I completely agree with Snicker.

No one's saying Ann Romney didn't work hard to raise children. She just got to do it with a gazillion dollars without working for an income outside of the home, and THAT is the difference Rosen was pointing out.
I had a mastectomy in '05 and another in '08, and, while I sincerely wish Ann Romney all the best regarding her health issues, with my $15,000 health insurance deductible (yes, $15,000) I am still paying for my surgeries, still paying my almost $700/month premiums, and working full time outside the home. The Romneys simply do not have a basis upon which to understand the middle class.

Well thank you very much Roseanne "Stating the Obvious Barr. What moron believed that Ann Romney didnt have a nanny, cook and driver. That doesnt mean she didnt work - do you think its easy to get that tennis fore-hand stroke just right?? And how about planning a brunch at the Ivy?? Honestly Roseanne, you can be so daft.

I would never vote for the Romney's. Raising 5 kids with lots's of help I'd say. I bet they don't even know how high food prices are let alone the shrinking size of buying a product and paying more. Geesh, they are far from the reality of a real working family and real stay at home moms!!! They can go sell BS somewhere else I'm not buying!!!
