Biden Calls Rosen Comments ‘Outrageous’

Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday continued the White House’s condemnation of Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen’s comment that Ann Romney “hasn’t worked a day in her life.”

“That’s an outrageous assertion,” Biden said during an interview that aired Thursday night on MSNBC’s The Ed Show.

“Look, I fought my whole career … to get to one point where my daughter is able to make whatever choice she wants and no one question it,” Biden continued.

 

The vice president pointed to his own wife who gave up her high-school teaching job after the birth of her daughter to stay home and raise the couple’s three children. Eventually Jill Biden returned to her career, and spent the next several years working full-time, raising a family, and earning two master's degrees.

Biden also took the opportunity to contrast President Obama’s record on women’s issues with that of Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney. He pointed to Romney’s stumble Wednesday on a question about the Fair Pay Act as representative of his disconnect from the American people, and particularly his trouble with women voters.

“Barack’s policies, our past, our expectations, our dreams for women,” Biden said. “Contrast that with the Republican agenda as it has been and continues to be relative to women, I don’t think it’s a close call, and I think women will make that judgment.”
