Obama White House Declines to Disavow Hilary Rosen's Attack on Ann Romney

It’s open season on families now. Well, Republican families.

During today’s White House press briefing, spokesman Jay Carney declined to distance the Obama administration from Hilary Rosen, the Democrat operative and frequent White House visitor who said that Ann Romney, cancer survivor and mother of five, has “never worked a day in her life.” Instead, Carney referred to Obama policies and attacked Republican policies. He would not explicitly condemn Rosen’s comments.

The Obama White House realizes that, having authorized Rosen’s attack, it is in no position to throw her under the bus now. So the Democrats’ war on motherhood stands.
