BLITZER: You’re a lifelong Democrat, but the Democrats are quickly throwing you under the bus, Hilary. The first lady of the United States Michelle Obama tweeting, saying, “Every woman works hard and every woman deserves to be respected.” Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chair of the Democratic Party: “Disappointed in Hilary Rosen’s comments. As a mother of three, there’s no doubt that raising children is work.” and Vice President Joe Biden just gave an interview to MSNBC in which he said and they’ve been tweeting it: “My response to that is that’s an outrageous assertion.” And you saw what David Axelrod and Jim Messina from the campaign, the Obama campaign.
ROSEN: That’s okay.
BLITZER: How do you feel that the fellow Democrats are going after you like that?
ROSEN: I totally agree with what the first lady said about women, that’s what I’ve felt that my whole life. What she said is fine. What the rest of them said is politics. The Republicans slammed and came at this pretty quickly. People who know me, know that I didn’t intend that and my words were not very good. If they want to play politics with it, that’s fine. it doesn’t change the issues and it doesn’t change the fact that I still believe Barack Obama has the best record to run on that supports women.
