Ms Rosen, the war on stay-at-home moms is a faux war? It's real thanks to things like your faux apology. #waronmoms—

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.
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.
Predictably, it’s not going over well. People don’t cotton much to insulting faux apologies.
Reading Hilary Rosen's apology; hearing knights with coconuts yelling "RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY!"—

Hilary Rosen's "faux" apology not so much of an apology as a Democratic talking point on what she thinks is a phony issue by conservatives.—

Everyone who believes Rosen is now sincere in her apology, the gullible line forms to the left…—

Nice try, Rosen. You can’t fool mommies (or daddies).
