Ann Romney: “Why should women be paid equal to men?”

12:30 am - 04/30/2012

At a meeting with the “Moms For Mitt” group yesterday outside Philadelphia, PA, Ann Romney was asked her opinion on Lilly Ledbetter and equal pay for equal work regarding women’s employment. Without hesitation she responded with another question that seemed to shock even the most staunch conservatives in the room.

“Why should women be paid equal to men? Men have been in the working world a lot longer and deserve to be paid at a higher rate. Heck, I’m a working mom and I’m not paid a dime. I depend on my husband to provide for me and my family, as should most women… and if a woman does work, she should be happy just to be out there in the working world and quit complaining that she’s not making as much as her male counterparts. I mean really, all this wanting to be equal nonsense is going to be detrimental to the future of women everywhere. Who’s going to want to hire a woman, or for that matter, even marry a woman who thinks she is the same, if not better than a man at any job. It’s almost laughable. C’mon now ladies, are you with me on this?"

This doesn't even make any sense.

If Bob has 0 apples, and Amanda has 3, one could say "Bob has fewer apples than Amanda." If YOU assume that means Bob has at least one apple, the error is with you, not with the person making the statement.

Leaving things open to interpretation doesn't mean that the statement is flawed, nor does it absolve you of your mistake when you make it. You stated that her comment implied that your comment is edgy, when it does not at all. Yes, it leaves the possibility open, but it doesn't imply anything.
