Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen, who said that Ann Romney never worked a day in her life is out with one of those apologies that doesn’t actually sound anything like an apology. Seriously, if one of my kids apologized like this they’d be spending a lot more time in their room.
She says, “Let’s put the faux “war against stay at home moms” to rest.” I’m thinking she’d like to get back to talking about the phony war on women.
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. Here is my more fulsome view of the issues. As a partner in a firm full of women who work outside of the home as well as stay at home mothers, all with plenty of children, gender equality is not a talking point for me. It is an issue I live every day. I apologize to Ann Romney and anyone else who was offended. Let’s declare peace in this phony war and go back to focus on the substance.
I declare peace in this phony war. Wow. That sounds contrite, doesn’t it?
