Hilary Rosen Apologizes to Ann Romney: ‘Let’s Put the Faux ‘War Against Stay-at-Home Moms‘ to Rest’
The Blaze ^ | April 12, 2012 | Madeleine Morgenstern

Posted on 04/12/2012 11:07:10 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen is out with a statement apologizing to Ann Romney for saying she “never worked a day in her life.”

Via Talking Points Memo:

“Let’s put the faux ‘war against stay at home moms’ to rest once and for all. As a mom I know that raising children is the hardest job there is. As a pundit, I know my words on CNN last night were poorly chosen. In response to Mitt Romney on the campaign trail referring to his wife as a better person to answer questions about women than he is, I was discussing his poor record on the plight of women’s financial struggles.

Yes, let’s. But unfortunately for you, Rosen, the TRUE feelings of the left are exposed.

Playing Emily Littela only works on SNL.

Ahhh. The non-apology apology.

Rosen knew exactly what she was saying and what the reaction would be.

Nothing at her political level happens by chance.

I think it’s pretty clear. Democrat representative Hilary Rosen thinks women who stay at home and raise their kids are 3rd class citizens.

The real problem that these radical lesbian Democrat dingbats don’t understand, is that a LOT of women who are not stay-at-home-moms WOULD LIKE TO BE, and envy those who can do it.

It’s backfiring in their faces, and they don’t understand why. They were told this would be a perfectly good attack line!

Not on your life Ms. Hilary Rosen. Your boss, Barry the Dear Leader, David Axelrod, and George Stephenopolus decided to pick this fight and it's not going away. The “war on women” was started by Donkeys and they now OWN the war they started.

My rough translation of this apology: “Sorry you are a jerk about being hurt by my comment.”

Rosen apologized to Anne Romney BUT didn’t apologize to Sarah Palin? I wonder why?I guess the leftists do not feel as threatened by Ann Romney.I wonder why?

Get this from Rush Limbaugh:

“These are the same people . . . who hammered Sarah Palin for daring to go to work when she had a Down syndrome child,” said Limbaugh. “These are the same people that hammered Sarah Palin for daring to go to work when she had so many kids to raise. You couldn’t do both if you’re a Republican . . . If you do, you are not exhibiting proper responsibility.”

http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/rosen-romney-motherhood-rush/2012/04/12/id/435691

For me, this proves that Mitt Romney is an “ approved Republican.” And since the left approves of Romney, for this and other reasons, I will NEVER vote for Romney.

It’s not really a “war on stay-at-home moms”.

It’s an ongoing war that the left is conducting against traditional values in general, and the traditional family in particular.

Their ideological “father” hates the family,
and they are doing his bidding (John 8:42) in trying to destroy it.

WELCOME TO:
The new wacked out America where a full blown lesbianated Democrat hack feels fit to make pronouncements from on high about a normal married woman who has reared five children who you never hear bad things about

My question is, would she sleep with her jug eared Kenyan man-god if he commanded to her to? Would she give it up and heed the call to duty?

Someone mentioned on Fox this afternoon that Rosen works in the firm with Anita Dunn who proudly revealed that Mao is her “go to” philosopher. Perhaps these two are not the best spokesmen for women in America.

Notice how this story has crowded out the bad employment numbers. Misdirection nicely done by an Obama surrogate.

This is not an apology.

This is a “I’m sorry, but...” apology.

I didn’t take her remarks as a “faux” attack on those of us who stay home.She meant every word she said it wasn’t until it blew up in their faces that she was sorry.Then even in her apology she still tries to belittle with the “faux war” comment when she is the one who launched it.

Its a shame that a beautiful name was given to such a lousy woman like Hilary Rosen..not a surprised that she would work for a woman like Anita Dunn who loves Mao, birds of a feather flock together

If a housewife were paid as an employee, the labor costs could be considerable. In fact, if progressives read this they may may pass legislation to require housewives to be paid by their husbands, so that these tax dollars would not go missing.

They will never understand real women.

A real woman’s choice is not whether she can buy the pill or can kill her baby freely or can become a construction worker or kill the enemy on the front lines...real women don’t “choose” to ponder on those enticing “choices” that NOW and the lesbos have demanded we have or else....

Real women want real men and a happy, loving home, (children or no children) and want to be able to choose home and family or career and work.

Because of NOW and “women’s lib”, we are expected to do it all; not only to work and have a career, but also to run and maintain our home, cook healthy meals, keep our husband from straying by getting implants and botox etc.

I do not want to bring home the bacon AND fry it up in the pan...I am CAPABLE, but I want to have the choice.

And I remember the women’s lib groups attacking women who stayed home and baked cookies-if you stayed home and didn’t work it was because you were under your husband’s control and he was a “pig”, or you were just plain dumb and didn’t know any better.

They have ALWAYS waged a war against stay at home women conservatives...and just because they want to end the “faux-war” doesn’t mean they will...

MS. Hillary was only saying what the progressive collective really believe...she just forgot to lie.

The Mrs

Rosen further added,”I wanted to paint her as a rich b!tch, but the evil Republicans turned my words against stay-at-home moms.”

Rosen closed with,”did I just say that out loud?”

Unless they are the women she hires to stay home and watch HER kids
In which case, are they citizens at all?

My mother was a "stay at home mom" who raised three boys.

I know what she went through because I was a major contributing factor in her trials and tribulations.

Any one who would say she "never worked a day in her life" deserves a swift boot in the ass!

Kind of a shame I'm not a Democrat. Comments like that would make me switch parties.
