If there was any doubt that there is a war on women, Democrat advisor Hilary Rosen proved it continues to rage: liberals loathe women who stay at home to raise their children.  Just read what Rosen had to say about Mitt Romney’s wife, Ann:

“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.”

Not only did Ann debut on twitter with a response (“I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work.”) but even the Obama campaign realized it needed to distance itself from this misogyny:

“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.”

I suspect that Messina and Axelrod only disagreed because Rosen made these comments in public.

    If anyone agrees with Hilary that Mrs. Romney has never worked a day in her life, they are welcome to come spend a day or two caring for my 4 kids. On second thought, never mind, I can’t afford to expose my kids for a day to someone who would think that way. They get enough of that from some of their teachers.

    Your suspicions about Messina and Axelrod show that you are incredibly biased at least on this issue. To make sweeping generalizations about liberals because of what one person said is telling.

    This argument isn’t worth the time of day. I have been on both sides of this coin. There is no question that raising children is a job. But there is no denying that raising children and working outside the home is a far more imposing lifestyle. Most mothers don’t have a choice. Frankly, Ann Romney did the job every mother does…raise her children. What Rosen said was not disrespectful, it was just the truth.
