Barack Obama on Ann Romney: Hard-Working and Wonderful!

by at . Comments

Following comments by Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen - who criticized Ann Romney for "never [working] a day in her life" and, therefore, lacking the knowledge to speak on economic issues - the wife of Mitt Romney finds herself supported by an unlikely ally:

Barack Obama.

  • Ann Romney and Mitt Romney

Speaking to Columbus, Ohio television station WCMH yesterday, the President defended the work of stay-at-home moms everywhere, while also emphasizing that family members ought to be off limits in an election.

“First of all there is no tougher job than being a mom," Obama said. "I think this was an ill-advised statement by somebody on television. It's not something that I subscribe to, and moreover my general rule is you don't talk about the spouses of elected officials because they've got a really tough job. They're out there supporting their husband or wife who have chosen to serve in public eye.

"Sometimes that spouse isn't volunteering for that job, but they're doing the best they can supporting somebody they love and they care about. And I think they're off limits, so on both counts it was the wrong thing to say and I haven't met Ms. Romney but she seems like a wonderful woman and I know that she's devoted her life to her family.”

Ann Romney also shot back at Rosen this week, telling Fox News women should respect the career choices made by other women and that mothers are perfectly capable of speaking out on the "legacy of debt" she believes Obama is leaving the next generation.

its also hard being a single mom left by a cheating husband who thinks free @ss is the key to happiness. And its hard trying to be a single mom when the government cuts back the much needed benefits to care for them because of its debt crisis. If the father makes money, hes likely going to get custody because the system has holes in it and doesnt care that single mothers cant pay bills. And child support takes several months to get off its @ss. But even then, it doesnt pay bills. This country has serious problems. I dont think obama is to blame completely. Im not voting this year. I wont vote for anyone who wants to control the country and put thousands of military drones in the sky to babysit us.

I love how some of you ignorant fools like to talk about racism and call other people racist when you are the one who is being racist and ignorant I might add. FYI the president is half black/half white. And irregardless he is still a person just like you or and I and he will have faults just as everyone else. Stop blaming a color of a person's skin for things you feel is right or wrong.
