Hilary Rosen Blasts Ann Romney for Not Holding a Job (VIDEO)

The gloves have come off pretty quickly between the Obama and Romney camps this week.
Democratic strategist and Obama adviser Hilary Rosen delivered an uppercut to Ann Romney, Mitt’s wife, in a CNN appearance on Wednesday.
Discussing the much-hyped “War on Women,” Rosen said that it was a GOP tool to try to paint Democrats as not being friendly to females. She believes the opposite is true and the GOP has trampled on the rights of women.
Rosen commented on the irony of Mitt Romney saying what his wife thinks about the economic conditions of women under President Obama. Here’s a bit of what she had to say:
“.. [Ann Romney] has actually never worked a day in her life. She’s never really dealt with the kinds of economic issues that a majority of the women in this country are facing in terms of how do we feed our kids, how do we send them to school, and why do we worry about their future,” Rosen stated.
“[Mitt] seems so old-fashioned when it comes to women. And I think that comes across and I think that’s going to hurt him. He doesn’t really see us as equal,” she added.
Needless to say, the Romney camp jumped on this clip and tried to paint the Obama campaign as being against stay-at-home moms. Hmmm … that’s not exactly what I heard.
ANSWER IN THE COMMENTS SECTION BELOW:
Do you see Hilary Rosen’s comments as a knock against stay-at-home moms?
Or, are there truly some economic issues facing working women to which Ann Romney will never be able to relate?
