Federalist 58 by James Madison. 1. Under the proposed Constitution whose interests were represented by the U.S. Senate? Is it so today? If not, how might it be remedied & by what means? 2. How did the Constitution provide for updating representation in Congress? 3. Madison credits the U.S Constitution with assigning the greatest power, that of the “purse strings” to the U.S. House. In your opinion, how might the House assert that power to reduce the size & cost of government today? 4. Explain in your own words Madison’s warning against too many men serving in the House. How might his warning be applied today as calls abound for a more direct democracy & for scrapping the electoral college system? 5. Is democracy the form of government our Founders gave us or was it a republican form? Explain the difference.

Ann Romney Fires Back at DNC Advisor Over Job Comment

Ann Romney: "I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work."


Ann Romney, wife of leading GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney, fired back at an adviser to the Democratic National Committee over her comment that she has never held a job.

“Guess what, his wife has actually never worked a day in her life,” Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen told CNN’s Anderson Cooper during an interview Wednesday night.

Cooper and Rosen were discussing the GOP candidate’s alleged “war on women,” which he spent most of Wednesday countering.

Shortly after Rosen’s jibe, Mrs. Romney, in her first tweet ever, said, “I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work.”

Obama campaign officials quickly distanced themselves from Rosen’s comments.

“I could not disagree with Hilary Rosen any more strongly. Her comments were wrong and family should be off limits. She should apologize,” tweeted Obama campaign manager Jim Messina.

His message was followed by a separate tweet from David Axelrod, Obama’s top campaign strategist. “Also Disappointed in Hilary Rosen’s comments about Ann Romney. They were inappropriate and offensive,” he said.

Rosen later said she merely did not want Romney’s husband to use her as an example to all American women.

“I’ve nothing against @AnnRomney. I just don’t want Mitt using her as an expert on women struggling $ to support their family. She isn’t,” Rosen tweeted.
