Disappointed in @hilaryr 's comments. As a mother of 3 there’s no doubt that raising children is work.—

That is hilarious, coming from the woman who was being advised by Hilary Rosen when she first uttered the absurd “war on women” phrase.
Irony, thy name is Debbie Wasserman Schultz. She’s not the only Democrat trying to scurry away from Rosen’s remarks. And failing. Even the big guns like Michelle Obama were brought out.
Every mother works hard, and every woman deserves to be respected. –mo—

Of course, she failed to mention that her husband is empathetic toward mothers only because they’ve been “punished with babies” and all.
Yep. Wasserman Schultz’s attempt at distancing is late. Obama campaign staffers got the ball rolling earlier.
Also Disappointed in Hilary Rosen's comments about Ann Romney. They were inappropriate and offensive.—

I could not disagree with Hilary Rosen any more strongly. Her comments were wrong and family should be off limits. She should apologize.—

Deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter hopped onto Messina’s tweet.
There are frantic attempts to spin away Rosen’s advisor status as well.

Oh, really? Then why has she visited the White House thirty-five times?
I mean, some folks visit the White House more often than Hilary Rosen. "Alfred/Al Sharpton" has visited 38 times.—

Press Secretary Carney is spinning away, however.
Best response to the incredibly transparent attempts by Democrats to disavow Hilary Rosen?
