Obama: “I Don’t Have A Lot Of Patience About Commentary About The Spouses Of Political Candidates”
The president weighs in on the Hilary Rosen controversy.
“there’s no tougher job than being a mom.”
“Anybody who would argue otherwise, I think, probably needs to rethink their statement,” the president told Bruce Aune of ABC’s Cedar Rapids affiliate KCRG…
“I don’t have a lot of patience for commentary about the spouses of political candidates,” he told KCRG.
“My general view is those of us who are in the public life, we’re fair game. Our families are civilians,” he said. “I haven’t met Mrs. Romney, but she seems like a very nice woman who is supportive of her family and supportive of her husband. I don’t know if she necessarily volunteered for this job so, you know, we don’t need to be directing comments at them. I think me and Governor Romney are going to have more than enough to argue about during the course of this campaign.”
