Obama Set Up, Prepared The "Ann Romney Doesn't Work" Attack

On FoxNews, I just saw the headline, "White House passes on chance to disavow attack on Ann Romney."

Which is strange, given that Obama's campaign guys have thrown Hilary Rosen under the bus, and even Michele Obama took to twitter to claim she respects all moms, and we all ought to.

But maybe it's not so strange.

Watch this video from Breitbart, where he talks about the woman who "advised me at the law firm where we met" (a knock on Romney's statement that Ann is one of his advisers) and goes on to say "We didn't have the luxury for [Michele] not to work." And how it was hard for Michele Obama to "balance" the needs of work and child-rearing.

This is from last Friday, says John Nolte, who made this connection.

The Obama campaign would have us believe that last night on CNN Obama advisor and frequent White House guest, Hilary Rosen, spoke out of turn with her indefensible attack on Ann Romney and every woman who chooses to stay home and raise her family. But in a speech last Friday at “The White House Forum on Women and the Economy,” President Obama seemed to be laying the groundwork for exactly this attack.

It sure seems, then, like the White House cooked up this line of attack, and Hilary Rosen, who's been there 35 times and advises Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (in order to help her "tone it down," ironically enough), was simply delivering the Daily Two Minute Hate, as ordered by her bosses.

And in that case the White House's and the Obamas' and Messina's and Axelrod's claims of finding fault with the comment are, naturally, completely disingenuous.

By the way-- Sandra Fluke? Hilary Rosen's PR firm represents her.

Jay Carney... claims he can't confirm that Hilary Rosen has visited the White House 35 times, because he "personally" knows three women named Hilary Rosen, so, you know, who can say with any certainty which Hilary Rosen it was.

PROTIP: It was the one who works for former top Obama adviser Anita Dunn. Not the one who serves coffee at Starbucks, and not the one who just got bat mitzvah'd.

Video: I know three Hilary Rosens. So maybe it was one of them.
