Hilary Rosen defends comments that Ann Romney has never worked, while Twitter targets Mitt Romney
Late yesterday afternoon, the Twitterverse took a few issues to the Romney campaign and started plowing questions through the hashtag #AskRomney.
It all started with Ann Romney trending after Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen was abruptly thrust into a media-led feud when she said that Mrs. Romney “never worked a day in her life."
Here’s the full quote: “What you have is Mitt Romney running around the country, saying, 'Well, you know, my wife tells me that what women really care about are economic issues, and when I listen to my wife, that’s what I’m hearing.' Guess what? His wife has actually never worked a day in her life. She’s never really dealt with the kinds of economic issues that a majority of the women in this country are facing, in terms of how do we feed our kids, how do we send them to school, and why do we worry about their future.”
Soon after, as these things usually go, Ms. Rosen apologized for her remarks saying, “As a mom I know that raising children is the hardest job there is. As a pundit, I know my words on CNN last night were poorly chosen."

The next topic was directed at Mitt Romney, asking him questions. Diane Sawyer started it when she tweeted “I'm sitting down with @MittRomney & @AnnDRomney on Monday. What's your big question? #AskRomney." And from there one tweeter in particular (@TheDemocrats) went and gave the trending topic the boost it needed to get going.
Most of the tweets were ridiculous, while some were legit and needed to be answered.
Here’s a few that trended the most.
