Team Obama Tries to Distance Themselves From Ann Romney Attacker …(Rosen Visited White House 35 Times)
The Obama White House tried to distance themselves from Dem adviser Hilary Rosen. The top dem adviser attacked Ann Romney yesterday for being a stay at home mother and raising 5 children.
Today, Hilary Rosen doubled-down and blamed Mitt Romney for her attacks on his wife.
“Look, Mitt Romney brought his wife into this conversation.”
FOX News reported:
On Thursday, Rosen blamed Republicans for focusing on her comments, rather than on the issue of whether Romney understands the concerns of working women.
“This really isn’t about stay-at-home vs. working moms,” she said. “I have kids. It’s the hardest job I’ve ever had. Romney has brought his wife into conversation. … It’s strategic to attack me rather than talk about the issues.”
After Rosen’s remarks, Ann Romney immediately responded with a debut tweet, sparking a Twitter storm.
“I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys,” tweeted Romney, a 64-year-old mother of five and grandmother of 16. “Believe me, it was hard work.”
Top Obama campaign officials then took to Twitter in an attempt to distance themselves and the re-election effort 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,” Obama campaign manager Jim Messina said in a tweet.
For the record… White House visitor logs indicate that “Hilary Rosen” visited the White House 35 times.
