Obviously, Hilary Rosen's attack on Ann Romney wasn't welcomed by the Obama campaign.
Obama needs to get every woman's vote he can, and stupid remarks like Rosen's don't help achieve that.
From ABC News:
Ann Romney's debut on Twitter couldn't have come at a more opportune time.
Ann's first tweet came just moments after Democratic strategist and DNC adviser Hilary Rosen lobbed an insult at Ann Romney, suggesting that the 64-year-old mother of five and grandmother of 16 had never held a job.
"Guess what, his wife has actually never worked a day in her life," said Rosen, who was being interviewed by CNN's Anderson Cooper about the "war on women."
And then, just like that, a familiar name popped up on Twitter: @AnnDRomney.
"I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work," Ann tweeted.
..."I could not disagree with Hilary Rosen any more strongly. Her comments were wrong and family should be off limits. She should apologize," Obama campaign manager Jim Messina said in a tweet.
Top Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod also tweeted his disapproval: "Also Disappointed in Hilary Rosen's comments about Ann Romney. They were inappropriate and offensive."
Following the interview, Rosen herself tweeted, "I've nothing against @AnnRomney. I just don't want Mitt using her as an expert on women struggling $ to support their family. She isn't."
So the Obama campaign wants it both ways.
The "War on Women" stuff won't fly if Team Obama is attacking stay-at-home moms.
Messina and Axelrod condemn Rosen and distance themselves from her damaging remarks.
Rosen continues to deliver the low blows, not backing down at all. Her focus, however, swings to the "hate the rich," class warfare rhetoric that is a cornerstone of Obama's presidency. Rather than slamming Ann Romney as "never worked a day in her life," Rosen subtly shifts her criticism to Ann Romney never worrying about money to support her family.
Rosen claims Ann Romney isn't an expert on economically "struggling women," suggesting she doesn't care about them.
It's a sleazy way for the Obama campaign to appeal to the current and former stay-at-home moms while still attacking Ann Romney.
If Messina and Axelrod sincerely thought family should be off limits and Rosen had said inappropriate and offensive things, Rosen would be muzzled by the White House. She wouldn't continue to attack Ann Romney.
