Ken marks 100 years since the sinking of the Titanic.
It struck an iceberg at 11:40 in the evening on April 14 1912.
That it sank shortly after 2 AM on April the fifteenth.
-- speaking of sinking ships.
Democrats are running for lifeboats this week.
After Democrat strategist Hilary Rosen blurted out that and Romney the wife of GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney.
Had never work today in our life.
Now to their credit top Obama officials such as Jim Messina the Obama campaign manager.
And strategist David Axelrod.
Immediately condemned the remarks as did the First Lady Michelle Obama.
There has been some Olympic level backstroke swimming happening.
All week from Democrats trying to put as much real estate between themselves and Hilary Rosen is possible.
She did issue -- apology of sorts.
Working moms stay at home moms they're both extremely hard jobs I know I've shared them both and I I'm sorry -- that offended.
Well the apology was a bit tepid and it revealed a clue business on the part of Hilary Rosen.
Now when a person begins an apology with if this market now it's not a real apology.
Now it doesn't matter that comes from a Democrat or Republican when one says I apologize.
If I offended someone.
It's like saying I don't think I offended anybody but I did offend some hyper sensitive person and I guess I'm -- sorry they couldn't take it.
And had to be console with -- -- apology.
-- -- -- you did offend people.
And not to stand Romney.
But every person in this country who was stayed at home to raise children whether for a few years or for a lifetime.
Because you denigrated the value of what that mother was doing.
Let me help you out ms.
Rosen by staying at home and raising her five boys who are incredibly gracious courteous and polite gentleman.
She instilled in them values that made them all tax payers and none of them tax takers today.
She took -- school and made their breakfast and lunches and the rest of us didn't have to pay for their transportation and meals she nursed their wounds and got under the doctor so.
We didn't have to pay for their doctor visits.
She volunteered to help -- in school and their after school activities.
So we didn't have to pay professionals to provide tax -- subsidized after school care for them.
She made sure they got their homework study made good grades.
And we taxpayers didn't have to pay for remedial education for them.
Because she was available for them after school we didn't have to provide juvenile detention for their mischief.
Nor -- we have to provide alcohol or drug rehab for them.
Because she made sure they a good nutritious meals we don't have to cover their increase health care cost from diseases rated.
Lifestyles of overeating and under exercising.
And she worked hard.
And I'm glad we have after school programs believe me I am.
I'm I'm all for school breakfast and lunch programs for kids who don't get that at home.
I'm OK with remedial programs to help struggling kids and and absolutely for children's health initiatives to make sure that kids do get treatment for their needs.
I'm not some conservative who thinks it's bad to have those things.
I think it's just unfortunate that we need those things and we do.
But we shouldn't be critical of those who worked really hard and stay at home for their kids.
When they can't.
Because they're saving us a whole lot more money than Hilary Rosen will ever pay in taxes.
