Top Dem inserts foot into mouth of 'war on women' then party tries to redirect to Allen West's 'Commies'



Democrats are in damage control today after a national strategist made offensive remarks about Ann Romney "never worked a day in her life." Never mind raising five boys.

The comments by Hilary Rosen came as Democrats were pummeling Mitt Romney and his eroding standing among women voters. Now the narrative is all about Rosen.

"Disappointed in @hilaryr's comments. As a mother of 3 there’s no doubt that raising children is work," tweeted Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the South Florida Democrat who heads the DNC.

But Florida Democrats tried to find a way to turn attention to Communists. Really.

"We stand by numerous Dems that have condemned Rosen's remarks. The RPOF has yet to condemn the insulting remarks of Rep. West #stillwaiting," tweeted party spokeswoman Brannon Jordan.

Folks, we're in for a long general election.
