Hilary Rosen Apologizes To Ann Romney

Following the political firestorm over her comments that Ann Romney had never worked a day in her life, Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen released a statement of apology via CNN. “I apologize to Ann Romney and anyone else who was offended,” Rosen wrote. “Let’s declare peace in this phony war and go back to focus on the substance.”


Read her full apology below:

“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 lack of a record on the plight of women’s financial struggles. Here is my more fulsome view of the issues. 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.”
