GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s wife, Ann, joined Twitter tonight to lash back at liberal CNN commentator Hilary Rosen’s attack on her choice to be a stay-at-home mom. Rosen mocked Romney for “never working a day in her life.”
Many Twitter users also had deservedly harsh words for Rosen’s snide swipe at the mother of five and cancer/MS survivor:
Rosen is former career chief lobbyist for the RIAA and “Managing Director of the Public Affairs and Communications Practice of SKDKnickerbocker.

Prior to joining SKDKnickerbocker, Rosen was Managing Partner of the DC office of the Brunswick Group.”
SKDKNickerbocker is the home of former Obama hitwoman Anita Dunn.
