Hilary Rosen Apologizes For Remarks About Ann Romney
Matt | On 13, Apr 2012
Things can change pretty quickly in this over-analyzed election cycle.
On Thursday, political pundits and the media were reeling from comments made by Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen. She called out Ann Romney, wife of GOP front-runner Mitt Romney, for not working but having a strong opinion about the economy’s effect on women.
A day later, the winds changed.
Rosen found herself issuing a statement apologizing to Romney for what she said.
“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.“ said Rosen, via a statement.
“As a pundit, I know my words on CNN last night were poorly chosen,” she added. [SOURCE]
Her apology was not issued before a bit of reproach from President Obama who said, “I don’t have a lot of patience for commentary about the spouses of political candidates.” First Lady Michelle Obama tweeted, “Every mother works hard, and every woman deserves to be respected -mo.”
Other big names in politics weighed in on the dust-up, particularly those who are close to or were stay-at-home moms.
I think former First Lady Barbara Bush summed up the controversy best when she said people should just “forget it.”
At this point, Hilary cannot win. lol..
ANSWER IN THE COMMENTS SECTION:
Do you think the media blew the controversy between Hilary Rosen and Ann Romney out of proportion or was it justified?
