Democratic strategist apologizes to Ann Romney

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A Democratic strategist is apologizing to Ann Romney for saying the stay-at-home wife of wealthy Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has never worked a day in her life.

Hilary Rosen issued a statement Thursday saying that her comments were "poorly chosen." She says that as a mother, she knows raising children is the hardest job there is.

Rosen said on CNN Wednesday that Ann Romney has never had to work to pay the bills and should not be her husband's surrogate on women and the economy.

Rosen says in her statement that it is time to put the "faux war against stay at home moms" to rest.

President Barack Obama's top campaign advisers said Rosen's comments were offensive and had called on her to apologize.

I wonder if she had her fingers crossed behind her back at the time of the apology. The Demos are always so cared that someone is going to be richer than they are. Maybe if Hilary would stay home for a few years and take care of her family she might learn something new. Households with at home mothers tend to turn out much better raised kids, hands down. It is the women who think their husbands can't support their high-end life styles that they want to go out an "work," or better worded, "socialize" and get paid for it. Let this settle on the nerves of some of the liberals out there.
