4 responses to “Rosen in the hot seat over barb against Romney’s attitude toward women”

  1. rob s

    everyone knows exactly what she meant, the Obama team’s response is ridiculous. People in the upper reaches of wealth like the Romneys don’t have normal household needs, they’ll have servants who earn more than most people. I wish Rosen had held her tongue and not apologized.

  2. Adele Haas

    Hilary’s only meaning was true. Mrs Romney has
    Not felt the anguish of trying to feed and house a family with children.
    We women are being attacked by the republicans
    For existing,having a body, and having a mind of
    Our own.

    I am disgusted with the democratic party for
    Denouncing Hilary and can promise you that
    Should her statement cause her to be let go from
    Any position I will rally against those that cause it.

  3. Marc Paige

    Rosen did the right thing to apologize. To imply that raising children is not work is a stupid and wrong message. But it is also sad, and oh-so predictable, to see the right-wing Republican attack machine demean Hillary Rosen because she is gay.

    Obama seems to let me down more and more…….
