  •  The reason they're being portrayed that way (0+ / 0-)

    is because, as per usual, the professional Democratic strategists fucked up. Rosin never should have apologized. The Obama team never should have claimed to be offended and demanded she apologized. Rosin was absolutely right, but as soon as the the "strategists" decided that she was wrong, they basically said, "Yes, Republicans are correct in saying Rosin attacked her role as mother," even though it's quite clear that's not what she was doing.

    Rosin's a major fail, but not because she "attacked" Ann's family planning choices.

    •  Taking her words literally, that's what she said (0+ / 0-)

      I don't think that she meant it; she has clarified it nicely.  People are not saying "that's what she meant," but just "those words came off as conveying it."

      Check out how many time FP stories and diaries here make a big deal about someone's words despite the likelihood that they just failed to say what they meant.

      Dem strategists screw up often, but this isn't one of them.  Clarify and move on.
