We should be thanking Rosen, she’s nuking Obama’s claims of a GOP “war on women.”
Hilary Rosen: No apology — Politico
Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen just took to CNN again, this time to defend herself over her controversial comments about Ann Romney never working “a day in her life.”
Rosen insisted she wasn’t attacking the choices of stay-at-home moms, and suggested the Romney campaign was slamming her to take focus off the candidate’s record — in an appearance in which she offered no apology, as President Obama’s campaign manager Jim Messina had called for.
“This really isn’t about stay at home moms versus working moms,” she said. “It’s about women in general. I love stay at home moms. . .”
She added, “I have kids. Being a mom is the hardest job in the world. I’ve said consistently . . . look Mitt Romney (has) bought his wife into this conversation. This is not about Ann Romney. . . this is about the waitress” elsewhere in America with two kids can afford to have care for her kids while she works.
“This isn’t about whether Ann Romney, or I or other women of some means can afford to make a choice and stay home and raise kids,” Rosen said. “Most women . . . don’t have that choice. and that’s the piece that I’m not hearing from the Romney campaign.”
