Skip to comments.Rosen: 'I Apologize to Ann Romney'
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.

FR has been known to be a popular target for that sort of thing.
The funniest thing about this story so far is that Jay Carney claims that there are three Hilary Rosens
But they didn't count on how hot the Mommy Wars can burn.

LOL! Happy to amuse!
And I really hope this big stinky mess sticks to their shoes for a long, LONG time!
Democrats, unions, Kennedys, Mafia, big city governments...it's all the same thing.
Astonished at some of the hateful comments about Ann Romney. For those unaware, Ann Romney has scrubbed many a bathrooms and cooked and cleaned for years - in addition to raising 5 boys and battling cancer and MS. Ann Romney is legendary for rarely having domestic help in their home because it is incompatible with their values and financial priorities. The Romneys have never had domestic help commensurate with their station in life.
We hate Mitt, therefore we have to hate Ann. Unfortunately, they're also missing the glaring fact that this slam against Ann Romney is a slam against millions of women who determine that raising your own children and not having someone else do it for you is the better choice.
Obviously there are those women who have no choice, and there are some who have enough energy to do both well, but there are a whole lot more who sacrificially stay at home to be there for their kids whenever their kids need them to be there.
Ann Romney obviously made that choice, and Hillary Rosen just attacked her for it.
What side of this debate should any conservative be on?
It's a no-brainer.......
I just read that Obama weighed in on it, saying her remarks weren't appropriate.
You KNOW that when the arrogant Marxist pretender apologizes (to anyone but a Muslim, that is), he knows he's standing in poo and wants to get out.
Methinks it won't work.
You are likely the exception to the rule...but then most freepers do tend to trend that way. Overcomers and with great faith to do so.
I have no problem with woman remaining in the home and not working...in fact I wish more would sacrifice so they could do so...but the mindset today is so focused on material wealth that most will not make those necessary changes.
I remember a time I lived on a part-time job for ten dollars an hour....paid all my expenses, and went without many basics I found options for. I certainly struggled hard to make it work..but I never once missed a payment on anything....but I went without EVERYTHING else for enjoyment. My “pleasure” was every two weeks I bought a pk. of dollar minuture candy bars as a “treat” for working so hard to make it work. You can imagine the pleasure that was!
So if I can pay rent, all utilites and bills on a part time job there’s really no reason a family can’t have the wife stay at home...and perhaps work from there. It can be done...but you will assuredly go without many things otherwise.
If anyone gives you slack about remaining in the home...and ask you what you do...Just tell them:
I’m responsible for love, joy and peace in my home... and I’m raising future citizens of the United States’....then ask them what they do. They will stuggle for words to top that.
agree, what would they know about going into a food store and only buying store brands, having a tight budget, whilst living within our means.
My wife years ago starting out was a nanny for a couple of rich folk and she said these women never washed their clothes, even skid marks in their panty’s, cleaned their house, looked after their kids etc.
One employee the vice Pres of Reebok up in MA where she used to live invited her to a baby shower and all excited by wife went out , got a present as best as she could with the money she had and went to the shower.
Yep only to find out she was had to look after the baby and the other kid while the wife was about entertaining and getting drunk.
While Rosen or any others like her cannot talk about Ann Romney , well lets face it big bum Michelle, Rosen or Ann have not one clue what it is like to get ahead, put out of work, do the right thing and miss out on things like never eating out, cannot order pizza , spouse breaks back in 3 places, kids etc and all of that whilst never ever go into debt .
That's not true...
Romney already admitted to having gardeners and certainly households maids as their IRS shows.....
IRS forms released Tuesday by Mitt Romney's presidential campaign show that $20,603 in taxable wages for household help in 2010. This figure was divided among four women: Rosania Costa ($4,808), Kelli Harrison ($8,667), Susan Moore ($2,238) and Valerie Cravens Anae ($4,890).
As well they paid less for them than the average wages paid for domestic help....and this was for one household...they have three.
There’s absolutely no way they are going to bring the truth of Obama and this administration to the forefront. The media is “dark” in every sense of the word as pretaining to bringing aything into the light for Americans to see.
Anything and everything will be made an issue of concerning Conservatives....we can count on being the’ Newt Gingriches” and “Sarah Palins” of our time collectively!
LOL! I just caught that thread.
The sad thing is they really think we're that stupid.
Well of course the scrawny-necked excuse for a human being stayed in the background until he saw which way it flew out of the fan.
Yet the useful idiot who shot her mouth off will never realize that she's even been used!
Methinks it won't work.
Methinks you're right!
I didn’t say that Ann Romney had no domestic help. In fact, they have very limited help when compared to their financial standing. Articles have been written since 1999 that Ann Romney does not like full-time help. They have relented since 2008 and the rigors of apresidential campaign, but the IRS filing you cite proves my point. This amount of help for 3 or more homes is infinitesimal.
If my wife and I had that kind of money, we would have a lot more help, I assure you.
Ann is notorious for wanting to do her own housework and prepare meals for her children and grandchildren. This is a fact, look it up.
Prove that statement. When were they not of better means....even when Romney was on mission in France he lived "lavishly". Even before he and his wife were married.
But that is beside the point of which is Romney has never been for want...ever...you delude yourself otherwise.
got that right .
No matter what Rosen or anyone on the left states the MSM will cover for them and this will go away or not be reported.
Hell I still know and meet people who do not know who ACORN is, who Ayers OR WRIGHT IS.
They have no idea about Holder, the racist DOJ, MO hypocrisy of eating fry ups and spending while telling us to eat veggies.
The list is endless and I know you know what the left is like but whilst the left has the MSM, the local channels, the Today show, Good morning America, Ellen show and we have dopes watching that crap then the elft will keep advancing their agenda and the left will keep getting dead people to vote and those alive on their side can vote 50 times .
Speaking of which why on this earth has those republican states not banned voting early, here in my state there is vote early vote often all over the place and what most do not know is that Mccain won FL my state on the night 53 to 47%
Or maybe she likes being used by her god, Obama?
I think some of these slobberers have literally sold their souls to be where they are.
It's one of the most pathetic things I've ever witnessed.........and I've been around a LONG time!
