Democrats accuse mother of five with cancer and MS of not working a hard day in her life…..

That’s right. High level Obama advisor Hilary Rosen, who visits the White House regularly, said that Ann Romney, who suffered from Cancer and MS and raised five children, hasn’t worked a day in her life.

This is what is called in politics a “Trial Balloon”. It is an attack made by a surrogate so they can poll on the attack later to see how it turns out. If it helps them the other Democrats pile on, if it hurts them it was just “in-artful phrasing by a lone supporter”.

Quite a different tune from when Obama told the press and some political opponents to “lay off my wife” in 2008. Of course, at the same time Obama was telling people to lay off his wife several of his campaign surrogates were attacking Cindy McCain for being a successful business woman.

Democrats also trashed Sarah Palin’s kids, portrayed Gov. Nikki Haley as a slut, attacked Allen West’s wife, and are now going after Ann Romney.
