we have representative john yarmuth. he talked about that in madson how jim ward is clearly the best impressionist in the country. you today on friday that mitch mcconnell said -- >> ahhhhh -- >> that he should make pour people into mulch. here now is jacki schechner with a current news update. >> good morning, stephanie, good morning, everyone. we all want now that mitt romney wants mothers to stay at home with their children as long as they are independently wealthy. he same that women who receive financial assistance should go back to work even if they have children as young as two.
he would be willing to give more money to child work. this seems to be in direct contradiction to last week, when remarks were made about ann romney not understanding the real economic concerns of women. another video on line today that buzzfeed drug up of mitt romney running for senate where we talked about the realities of a two-income household and moms no longer have the luxury of being to stay at home. >> this is a different world than it was in the 1960s. now mom and dad both have to work whether they want to or not. >> we have new numbers out today about how much money the obama recollection campaign raise a total of $153 million in march.
no other television show does that. we're keeping it real. ♪ >> announcer: ladies and gentlemen, it's the "stephanie miller show"! ♪ i'm walking on sunshine woe ho, i'm walking on sunshine woe ho ♪ ♪ it's time to feel good hey all right now ♪ ♪ it's time to feel good ♪ >> great. we'll add that to the national debt. a bunch of columbian hookers we owe money to. thanks secret service. >> great. >> it's the monday show.

hilary rosen thing as an early birthday present. that lets you know where their mindset is. and me personally you know, the big thing now is to teach our kids about bullying and not let other people be bullied. and i would be hypocrite if i didn't come to hilary's defense and say, you know what you had a nanny as a child -- >> her point, karl was economic. and it was absolutely dead on. it's -- he is right. it's getting too sir to play -- >> wheel of right-wing hypocrites! >> these stay at home moms much differently than those backs by hundreds of millions in private easity income. poor women could be required to work outside of the home to

being a stay at home mom not a job. >> but as you said ann romney has lived a privileged life and i think that was hilary's original point, was this is not the economic reality that most people face. >> there was a "new york times" report that i think came out today, i think that was saying that the majority of stay at home moms are actually women who did work, who many of them are women who did work who lost their jobs who decided you know what, screw the workplace, i'm going to stay home because my kids need me. they give an example of one woman who sold her car. she and her husband figured out how to cut back on everything and -- so she could stay home with one of her kids who is autistic. >> yeah. >> so there you go. that's -- i will say she works,
but she doesn't have a job. and that's what rosen was talking about. she ask not facing the workplace every day or negotiate the workplace every day -- >> rude did you see michele bachmann on meet the press. she said women understand the economic realities better than her husbands because they buy the gas and groceries. ann romney has never filled her car with gas or shopped for grocery in her life. >> yes, what you are getting is that class's perspective on it and that's not what you form your economic policy based on that. and bachmann added on by the price of dealing with banking. what the hell? how many working-class people deal with the price of banking? >> except for the atm fee.
2 bucks! >> i saw the sound bite of hilary and the cookies all weekend long -- is that what we're back too? >> yeah, just get over it. get over it. i know so many parents that would love to be stay at home parents. they would nothing more from their lives to be able to take care of their kids. either you cut back drastically on the expenses you have and live a pretty spartan life in order for one partner to be a state at home parent -- which by the way let's not get into the whole debate of how this has impacted stay at home dads. >> yeah. and again, part of it is generational, and -- in my mom's generation, they didn't have
much of a choice and they had the luxury because as you said, to be a stay at home for the last generation is an indulgence that is primarily able to the privileged. >> yes. yes. [ laughter ] >> take out -- you know do some renovation on one of your houses in order to get a tax break on what that renovation gives you in order to make more cash. it's a non-debate and i love michele bachmann saying i thought it was shocking and insulting. >> oh, yes. shocking. shocking. >> yeah. >> who -- who can speak better to the sanctity of marriage. her husband has the dignity of work -- >> yes. just beautiful. >> he works a hard day at the office. >> if you are -- if that's your

procreation. >> you say they will only teach the non-religious way that evolution is wrong, and how we were all [ censor bleep ] into existence by a masturbating sky wizard.

yeah is just stoking the fires, and it doesn't exist, and as media matters pointed out, it is on an invention. is legislation all across the country that has to do with defunding planned parenthood with curving health care access for women -- >> governor kripkeeper in arizona just signed a really draconian abortion bill -- >> yeah. and they are all over the place. and the added irony of this was, a lot of these right-wing bloggers and talk show hosts were saying there's no war on women, and if there was one, the republicans had just won it. these are the same people that
called called sandra a whore and a slut. >> by the way, hooch, my personal favorite. but as you wrote, fox incited herman cain to talk about hilary rosen. >> yeah, fox went bonkers. so they took this germ of a story which were the hilary rosen comments which there was a controversy, but at the end of the wake it was let's have herman cain come on and talk about well's rights. they kept trying to conflaet her comment into she is vice president or something. >> right. >> on fox they said someone who is perceived to be close to president obama. >> yeah, sure.
>> that's half of democratic washington. >> yeah. >> there is no war on bitches. [ laughter ] >> and did you hear is unfortunate audio? >> i all thes like the idea that people who are receiving welfare assistance have a responsibility of working. in my state we made good progress in that regard following the days of the welfare reform act, but when i was governor, 85% of the people on a form of welfare assistance in my state had no work requirement. and i said even if you have a child two years of age. you need to go to work. and people said that's heartless, and i said no no, i'm willing to spend more giving day care to allow those parents to go back to work. i want the individuals to have the dignity of work. >> such good news for ann romney don't you think?
>> that sheds some light of again where republicans are. on issues of moms and work and the whole conversation that ought to be taking place. poor moms who don't work have been the target of republican attacks for decades. so this notion that moms who don't work are just this close to sainthood just doesn't add up. >> and it goes to hilary rosen's real point. this is about economic inequality, which is exactly the point. as you say, mitten's tax recurrence must be astounding. talk about income inequality he is only releasing the last couple of years? i mean can you imagine? >> yeah, during the republican debates one of the most awkward moments every time it came up was his republican challengers
would ask him about his tax returns, and he clearly did not have any answer in terms of why he hadn't released them, when he was going to release them will he actually release them. so that has been a legitimate issue since the beginning of the campaign, and i don't think one or two sentences from hilary rosen is going to change that. >> oh, i don't pay taxes that's for the little people. >> yeah, if he is running on his record of the businessman, what is he afraid of? >> well, it's interesting -- >> again this is part of the ongoing media debate or it should be, he's running on his record as a businessman, and he hasn't had a job for a decade. >> yeah. >> so again -- >> he only made about $20 million last year. it's hard to even live on that. >> and the speaking fees those just change -- that was money he

[ baby crying ] >> yeah, it's funny because the campaign started and there was just a whole green room of fox, you know talkers deciding who wants to run? how could it be decided he wasn't going to run because he loved his fax paycheck? so the primary ends santorum and gingrich and payen are basically at war with fox news. and roger ails was saying gingrich is never coming back to fox. sarah palin never had a chance to be president.
and rick santorum will never return to fox. once you are outside the tent you are outside forever, apparently that goes to the republican candidates as well. >> yeah. let's dive into the right-wing. here is a good idea. let's ask rush limbaugh what he thinks about the war on women. >> blabs was on tv today. i didn't see it. what they are telling me is that they ironed the curls out of her hair and darkened it a bit, and it looks -- it's a total makeover of debbie wasserman schultz in the aftermath of the hilary rosen controversy. >> not one to be talking about
hair. >> that was some deep commentary. >> it was. but it shows about how deep his commentary goes about women. rush obviously has issues himself with women and powerful women. >> you think? >> hilary rosen makes a comment to debbie wasserman schultz goes to a hairdresser? >> right. that's easy to connect. >> that's how those gals talk. whatever. >> let's listening to the soothing tones of dana lohse. >> you want to talk about a war on women tony cats. >> obama hates women. if he liked women, he would buy michelle obama better clothes. i don't understand why he hates women so much. someone should take him out and question him seriously about why
he doesn't like women or care about women. i'm serious about the clothing. what the hell is going on here? does he give a holy damn or not? >> wow! i missed the name of that guest. >> tony katz. >> oh wow. eric you want to start on that? >> and what is up with her hair? oh, my god. >> in a segment on war on women, dana lohse hosts a guest who ridicules michelle. >> some extreme misogynist. thanks for playing making our point exactly, dana. >> michelle obama has been the target of an unpressdented smear
