DNC Advisor Hilary Rosen Insults Ann Romney, Freaks Out When Confronted


Democrats keep beating the drum of their faux “GOP war on women” by…..insulting stay at home moms

(ABC News) Ann Romney’s debut on Twitter couldn’t have come at a more opportune time.

Ann’s first tweet came just moments after Democratic strategist and DNC adviser Hilary Rosen lobbed an insult at Ann Romney, suggesting that the 64-year-old mother of five and grandmother of 16 had never held a job.

“Guess what, his wife has actually never worked a day in her life,” said Rosen, who was being interviewed by CNN’s Anderson Cooper about the “war on women.”

And then, just like that, a familiar name popped up on Twitter: @AnnDRomney.

“I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work,” Ann tweeted.

Both Jim Messina and David Axelrod tweeted their disapproval over Rosen’s comments, saying families should be off limits. We’re still waiting for Obama to chime in. But, Rosen decided to keep going.

Following the interview, Rosen herself tweeted, “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 kept tweeting, not appearing to back off of her comments.

“@AnnDRomney Please know, I admire you. But your husband shouldn’t say you are his expert on women and the economy,” said Rosen.

Right, because a stay at home mom, who would typically deal with all the costs of running a household, such maintenance, clothes for the kids, supplies, and food costs. Even a rich mom like Ann would understand what happens with costs in the economy. Probably better than Rosen.

And this is a direct insult to all the women who chose to stay at home and raise their families rather than enter the workforce. And Hilary decides to have a little freakout at the HuffPo

Spare me the faux anger from the right who view the issue of women’s rights and advancement as a way to score political points. When it comes to supporting policies that would actually help women, their silence has been deafening. I don’t need lectures from the RNC on supporting women and fighting to increase opportunities for women; I’ve been doing it my whole career. If they want to attack me and distract the public’s attention away from their nominee’s woeful record, it just demonstrates how much they just don’t get it.

Yet, despite her claim in fighting for women, she attacks all stay at home mom’s while attacking Ann Romney. As one ABC article commenter writes “Raising 5 kids while battling multiple sclerosis AND cancer isn’t “work”?”

@IrishSpy (blog here) tweeted: Will Ann Romney be getting a phone call from Barack Obama now?

Michelle Malkin points out that Democrats have pulled the same stunt on Laura Bush and attacked Sarah Palin for being a working mom.

I wonder what Rosen thinks about women who work at the White House getting paid 18% less than the men?
