View Full Version : A break for Romney? Wife attacked

04-12-2012, 11:08 AM
Last night on CNN, Democratic commentator Hilary Rosen -- who has no formal role with the Obama campaign -- said that Ann Romney has never worked a day in her life. The Romney campaign and GOP establishment went into overdrive on Twitter. “Hilary Rosen attacks Ann Romney, an MS & breast cancer survivor & mom of 5, for ‘never working a day in her life,’” said Romney spokeswoman Gail Gitcho. Ann Romney even started a Twitter account and said this: “I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work.” And she’s now set to appear on FOX during the 10:00 am ET hour, NBC’s Garrett Haake notes. The Obama camp quickly distanced itself from Rosen’s remarks. Said David Axelrod over Twitter: “Disappointed in Hilary Rosen's comments about Ann Romney. They were inappropriate and offensive.” Of course, we’re now waiting for some Republican to make a comment about President Obama’s race, or for a Democrat to say something unflattering about Romney’s Mormon faith. Folks, it’s going to be a LONG year…)http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/04/12/11161001-first-thoughts-romney-struggles-to-close-the-gender-gap-but-catches-break?lite

Yup, welcome to campaign season. This is the time of year that makes me sad knowing I'm the same species as some of these people...

It's not good when one of the advisors of your political party says that a housewife hasn't worked a day in her life. That won't go over well, no wonder Obama is running like wildfire away from Rosen's comments.

This lady just took a step back 40 years with her assanine comment. Not a Romney backer but raising 5 boys is an incredibly tough task. No surprise Obama is distancing himself from this clown.

A despicable comment. She used to have a role in the Obama political machine CNN, not any more. The Romney camp will have a very effective sound bite. Thanks Rosen.

What a dumb comment. Raising 5 children is an incredibly difficult task, especially when the husband is busy and out of the picture most of the time.
