Raising 5 children = "never worked a day in her life"? Sorry Hilary...there are thousands of stay-at-home-moms who would disagree with that absurd statement.
After a Democratic advisor bashed Ann Romney for never having a job, the wife of the GOP presidential frontrunner lost no time defending her choice to raise five boys rather than pursue a career outside the home - a choice one of her own sons jumped to defend as well.
ABC News reports that Mrs. Romney, mother of five and grandmother of 16, made a well-timed debut on Twitter only moments after Democratic National Committee advisor Hilary Rosen bashed Ann Romney’s lifestyle choice. “Guess what, his wife has actually never worked a day in her life,” Rosen told CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
Mrs. Romney’s response on Twitter, the first statement on the new account @AnnDRomney, was swift.
“I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work,” Ann tweeted, in a message the Romney campaign confirmed as authentic.
