Newscast Media WASHINGTON, D.C. After making comments that were meant as an attack on Ann Romney, Hilary Rosen the Democratic National Committee strategist has been facing blow-back from both Democrats and Republicans, prompting her to issue an apology to Mrs. Romney and mothers across America.


In a CNN interview, Rosen said about Mitt Romney's wife: "His wife has actually never worked a day in her life. She's never really dealt with the kinds of economic issues that a majority of the women in this country are facing."


Knowing how damaging Rosen's remarks could be to the Democrats, and how negatively they could affect Obama's campaign for re-election, campaign strategist David Axelrod also condemned Rosen's comments saying he was "disappointed" in Hilary Rosen's comments about Ann Romney. They were "inappropriate and offensive," Axelrod tweeted.


Obama weighed in on Hilary Rosen's comments and said, "There's no tougher job than being a mom. Anybody who would argue otherwise, I think, probably needs to rethink their statement."


Michelle Obama defended Ann Romney's choice to be a stay-at-home mom and raise five kids in the tweet below:



At this point, Rosen who had stubbornly stood by her remarks, went into damage control after members of her own Democratic Party condemned her.


"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," Rosen said in her statement.

Ann Romney tweeted from her newly-created Twitter account: "I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work."


Both Republicans and Democrats are trying to win the women's vote and the Democrats certainly do not need Rosen as a spokesperson considering her attitude toward women with children. Jim Messina, Obama's campaign manager summed it all up by saying: "Her comments were wrong and family should be off limits. She should apologize."           Add Comments>>
