    I must admit - this is a good thing he has done. :clap2:

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House — and President Barack Obama himself — rushed into a damage control campaign Thursday to blunt the impact of a Democratic consultant's suggestion that Ann Romney isn't qualified to discuss the economy because she "hasn't worked a day in her life."

    "It was the wrong thing to say," Obama declared in an interview with WCMH-TV in Columbus, Ohio, standing up for Republican rival Mitt Romney's wife with Democrats suddenly on the defensive over women's issues for the first time this election year. Of the "ill-advised statement" by consultant Hilary Rosen, he added, "It's not something that I subscribe to."

    Rosen is a White House operative who has been there on 37 occasions.

    She must be pissed to have been made the patsy.

    The president will come out of this smelling like a rose but it should defuse the "war on women" thing a bit.

    Savvy move on Barrys part.

    He distances himself from her mistake and makes himself looks like he really gives a shit.

    She, being a loyal idiot, will of course take the hit and rightly so.

    Politics as usual.

    Important thing is the Leftist meme of a Republican 'war on women' has been stopped and reversed.
