From under the bus, Rosen issues non-apology apology to Ann Romney

After doubling down, Hilary Rosen must have felt the pressure from all the cut and run Democrats. She issued a standard non-apology apology to Ann Romney.

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.

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