Democratic strategist and CNN contributor Hilary Rosen apologized Thursday to Ann Romney, wife of presumptive GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, for criticizing her choice to be a stay-at-home mother — but not before sparking a political firestorm with her remarks.
WASHINGTON – Almost from the moment Democratic strategist and CNN commentator Hilary Rosen made her controversial comments about Ann Romney, the story spread like wildfire through Twitter, the Internet and network TV, with rapid-fire reaction that has barely slowed since.
Rosen made her comments Wednesday on CNN at 8:52 p.m. ET , suggesting Romney was the wrong person on husband Mitt Romney’s GOP presidential primary campaign to be addressing women’s issues — considering “she’s never worked a day it her life.”
With a matter of minutes – enough time for the full impact of Rosen’s comments to be absorbed – critics took to Twitter and other social media to respond.
