Rosen: 'I Apologize to Ann Romney'
Big Government ^ | 04-12-12 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 04/12/2012 11:00:21 AM PDT by Lazlo in PA

Amid a massive backlash from the American public and a stampeding retreat from her supporters, Democratic National Committee advisor Hilary Rosen backtracked from her words about Ann Romney last night on CNN, stating a few moments ago, “As a pundit, I know my words on CNN last night were poorly chosen … I apologize to Ann Romney.” The report of that statement comes from Jim Acosta at CNN.

The question is whether the Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee will apologize to Romney, and whether they will fire Rosen over this incident. Rosen has long been associated with the Obama team and the DNC, and her apology means virtually nothing given the fact that she has defended her comments at length over the past 24 hours. Only pressure from inside the Obama campaign and DNC forced this apology. Even then, she apologized to Romney for her wording, not for the point she was making.

Sometimes haters just can’t control themselves and end up having to apologize.

Nope... she’s trying to recall a stinky release of intellectual flatus.

She was FORCED to appolize. This was a disaster for his excellency. At first she stonewalled. After a visit by the imperial enforcer, she RELUCTANTLY issued a mia culpa for HAVING SAID IT, not for thinking it.

Panther symp Michelle Williams apologized for her racist tirade the other day, now Hilary Rosen gets her mea culpa going. At the risk of sounding sexist, are liberal “womyn” in need of anger management therapy?

That ship has sailed. Rosen blew this whole phoney issue for the Rats. It was all they had to distract from Obummers record. Rosen is going to be persona non grats at the DNC headquarters for sure.

Good to see we exposed and destroyed this BS meme they were selling about the GOP hating women.

the left were exposed on how they really think, they hate the traditional family they hate the stay at home mother or father.

Now you lot were exposed to the average Today show viewer and you now harp on about this and have big bum to say mothers are hard workers and your MSM will cover for you and your words will be put out there while the real views will be covered up yet AGAIN .

Disdain for stay at home moms is so common among leftie femists that she didn’t think twice about saying it in the first place. The fact that many familes make economic sacrifices so they don’t have to have strangers caring for their kids is alien to her,

I heard there was a comment that was offensive toward Homeschooling moms but I don’t know the exact quote. Can someone post a link to this actual comment made.

As a homeschooling family this is very important to me.

More broadly :) it is a hatred of the traditional family.

It just goes along with everything else of the left -
if God values it, they hate it.

A LESBIAN PSYCHOTIC attacking someone for being a full time mother? How bout Moochelle making almost 400 K for doing nothing at the University of Chicago???

Then we have Jay Carney who couldn't live without a script just like Barry can't speak without a teleprompter.

And I don't consider that lesbian fascist as a mother. Her children will turn into lunatics from being raised by a creature like her...

And are her "children" adopted or created with a turkey baster?

Please ping the Moral Absolutes. This lesbian lunatic with children (still am not sure if they were adopted or made by turkey baster). But it is disgusting that some creature like that is going to criticize a stay at home mom.

How bout the stay at home welfare bums who wait each day for more Obamabucks???

Typical liberal / progressive tactic....L-I-E and say something and then let the MSM talk about it for a couple of days, then the liar goes on a friendly MSM show and says they made an error and apologizes for saying it.

This Rosen liar did it, just like the black female Panther did. They all know how to make a big splash and then come back after the harm is done with weepy, teary eyes begging for forgiveness.

And, the frigging media plays it up like the person just cured cancer or something.

When the hell is the GOP going to start taking notes and return fire? That's kinda a stupid question: Bill Cunningham tried it and McCain called a press conference 20 minutes later to condemn him. Sara said after the election that she had to run everything she was going to say through McCain's "censors".

Not to worry, though -----> Boehner, McConnel and the RNC leadership have our backs. (excuse me while I vomit !!!)

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!

I don’t care how much money you have. Raising 5 boys while battling Multiple Sclerosis and Breast Cancer, is something I would not wish on anyone. And her story is only one millions of stay at home moms whose struggles and sacrifices make them heroines in my book. They should be admired and emulated for her achievements and qualities, not put down by Liberal elitist.

Face it, the Democrats want everyone to hate on Mitt Romney (no problem at FR), and they want everyone to hate on Anne Romney. A Democratic operative like Rosen knew what she was doing, she just stated it poorly.

Rosen exemplifies those who are not really remorseful, rather sorry they got caught- a typical Dim response.

Ah, but the family, as an institution, is THE MAIN TARGET of the left.

There is no policy of theirs that doesn’t either directly or indirectly harm the institution of the family. I’m not even going to say “traditional” family, because, really, that’s what a family is. Their “other definitions” are nothing but part of their war on the family.

By default, anything that increases the power of the state diminishes the liberty of the family.

Hillary Rosen is a vicious viper. All of her kind are in need of therapy. They all are baby killers and that’s where all their problems start. They hate babies so they want to abort all of them. All of their other foolish thinking stems from this basic non-Christian value of killing defenseless human beings.
