Rosen made the comment Wednesday on the program.
"What you have is Mitt Romney running around the country, saying, 'Well, you know, my wife tells me that what women really care about are economic issues, and when I listen to my wife, that's what I'm hearing,’ “ she said. “ Guess what? His wife has actually never worked a day in her life."
The comment drew criticism from President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday, as well as high profile political operatives.
Romney responded to the comment on Wednesday, tweeting, "I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work."
In a Thursday appearance on Fox News, she said, "We have to respect women in all those choices that they made."
The point I took away from what Hilary Rosen said:
Mitt seems to constantly refer to his wife’s opinion when asked about women’s issues. Should his one source be from his wife’s whose experiences are specific to a mom who has not joined the workforce her entire life? It’s not a matter of attacking her choice to stay home, but pushing for him to relate more to a mix of women that includes single/married/with-or-without kids/full-or-part-time working moms/stay-at-home moms/diverse backgrounds.
Pity that Rosen is under fire for her comments as I think it was truthful and direct and not at all malicious, but was misconstrued and sensationalized.
