Palin: Rosen's Comments Awaken 'Mama Grizzlies'

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says Hilary Rosen’s comments about Ann Romney never having held a job “have awakened many Mama Grizzlies across the nation.” Palin also told Fox News’ Sean Hannity Thursday the comments from the Democratic strategist and CNN contributor show the left does not respect “women’s choices.”
 
“The comments that Hilary Rosen made today certainly have awakened many Mama Grizzlies across the nation,” Palin said, referring to Rosen’s statement that the wife of Republican front-runner Mitt Romney has no credibility to speak out on women in the workplace because of her role as a stay-at-home mother.

“Why is it that some on the left choose to divide, to incite with comments like that instead of just respecting women’s choices and what they want to do with the gifts that God has given them,” she said.

Rosen has no direct connection with the Obama campaign. But her statement on CNN that Ann Romney has “never worked a day in her life” has set off a firestorm that even had the president and First Lady Michelle Obama racing to defend Romney — and stay-at-home moms.

Still, Palin, a former GOP vice presidential candidate who is now a Fox News contributor, accused the Democrats and Obama of engaging in an attack on “conservative women,” whether they choose to stay at home and raise children or pursue a career outside the home.

“Let me share with you a quick text my sister had sent to me,” Palin told Hannity. “She said, ‘Oh, wait, didn’t these people slam you, who are the same ones slamming Ann Romney, because she stayed at home with five kids. Didn’t they slam you for not staying at home with your five kids?’ My sister goes on to say, ‘It’s obviously not a mom thing they are slamming, it’s a conservative thing.’”
 
Picking up on a Romney campaign charge that more women than men have been hurt by Obama’s economic policies, Palin added:

“It’s a sad commentary on this — this attempt to invalidate a woman for the choices that she’s making when really we should be unified. All women should be standing up for each other when you consider what’s going on in this country. All women, and all races, and all ages. We are all suffering under Obama’s economy, and we need to make changes.”
