During an appearance on CNN Wednesday night, Democratic commentator Hilary Rosen questioned whether Ann Romney was qualified to be talking about women’s economic issues since she’s “never worked a day in her life.” The Romney campaign responded quickly with a series of tweets attacking the Obama campaign and Democrats for not respecting Ann Romney’s decision to be a stay-at-home mother.
Again, WaPo’s Storify of the key tweets following these comments.
And here’s Rosen’s response to the backlash this morning (spoiler: she’s not backtracking).
Our take: Rosen, who you might remember as the longtime mouthpiece of the RIAA (during the Napster era, no less!), is in the wrong here, and her comments just make Obama look bad. Which is why Obama’s aides were quick to back away from her comments.
