A day after saying that Ann Romney “has actually never worked a day in her life,” and prompting a Twitter response from the candidate’s wife, democratic strategist Hilary Rosen defended her comments on Thursday.
“I love stay-at-home moms, and I have nothing against them,” Rosen said on CNN’s Newsroom. “And I support them all the time.” She said the point she was trying to make was not about Ann Romney but about struggling mothers trying to get good work.
Despite calls from top Democrats for her to apologize for her comments, Rosen instead continued to attack the presumptive GOP nominee: “Look, Mitt Romney has brought his wife into this conversation. This is not about Ann Romney.”
Ann Romney tweeted for the first time last night following Rosen’s earlier comments: "I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work."
