Hilary Rosen Apologizes to Ann Romney, Says Her Words "Were Poorly Chosen"
As Megyn Kelly just reported, DNC consultant Hilary Rosen has issued an apology to Ann Romney about her comments about stay-at-home moms. Here is the statement from Hilary Rosen to Ann Romney, provided to Fox:
“Let’s put the faux ‘war against stay at home moms’ to rest once and for all. As a mom I know that raising children is the hardest job there is. As a pundit, I know my words on CNN last night were poorly chosen. In response to Mitt Romney on the campaign trail referring to his wife as a better person to answer questions about women than he is,
I was discussing his poor record on the plight of women’s financial struggles. Here is my more fulsome view of the issues.
As a partner in a firm full of women who work outside of the home as well as stay at home mothers, all with plenty of children, gender equality is not a talking point for me. It is an issue I live every day. 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.”
