Think -- a more demeaning comment to make about mothers who forego a career to stay at home and raise their children now.
After mounting political pressure finally Hilary Rosen issued an apology is said that her words were only poorly chosen.
Well let's putting it mildly and earlier this evening President Obama finally distanced himself from the remarks calling them quote ill advised strong statement.
Joining me now -- reaction former Alaska governor Fox News contributor Sarah Palin are before we get to that which is just insane.
North Korea we knew this was coming.
You know it seemed like the president -- -- Jimmy Carter indeed draw a line in the sand.
They cross over draws another line in this and I really needed this time what's gonna lift these threats faced sanctions when it comes to dealing with other countries -- I think it's it.
Illustrating that our own foreign policy is becoming murkier.
And messy -- by the day and people are really craving that.
Peace through strength -- did success some Ronald Reagan's we don't have that today and it it really is so getting people look at more enthused about.
Figuring out what our foreign policy really is when it comes to dealing with North Korea in their threats and I know I am -- and and others out there and -- the did just the desire for some positive change in that no I inform policy when you're just all the other how was it that -- is a talk show host.
New had a much better idea what would happen.
With the Arab Spring in Egypt in the rises of of radical Islamist and the Muslim Brotherhood.
And the president gets a completely wrong thing you know he's gotten a completely wrong he's pressuring Israel not to strike against Iran even though they're very security is is in jeopardy.
And it seems that the world doesn't really respect President Obama.
Because President Obama he had his chance and with the Green revolution that was happening in our ram where America could have spoken for adults who were seeking free outmanned some some basic god given liberties.
And Obama took a pass on that and yet did interject himself on some other kind of -- US policy calls of other countries we've interjected ourselves there.
Where a lot of Americans are -- -- so inconsistent with our policy and with our interventions right so that -- we had.
Over the years we've -- people like James Carville -- -- and Nancy Pelosi and they keep referring to the Republican war against women.
President injects himself in the center of fluff controversy gives her -- call highly publicized.
Then all of a sudden he's confronted with a quandary in a moral dilemma and that -- -- is -- -- Bill Maher.
Who called you very offensive names.
Attacked your family and children attack Rick santorum's children he donates a million dollars to the president.
Now they don't return the money now said he ever received a phone -- your daughter -- received a phone call from the president.
And nurse it received a phone call but I think that's -- get more of the same of the inconsistencies that double standard.
That did this -- -- that is.
Our book ever presented by President Obama and the people he surrounds himself with look at that the class warfare that's being called look at that what's going on today's with.
-- Hilary Rosen she has the ear of the president who is advising the Democrat party.
And making such disrespectful.
Comments about a woman who has made a very honorable choice to stay home and -- the toughest job the most important job the risk.
And that's raising good.
Kids and and by the way and she's fought cancer and she's battled against MS and she's raised five great kids that are good are contributing to society.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- Never worked a day in her life.
Now look I I know I have my wife I have many friends in their wives.
Let's say they got to get the kids off to school they got to organize their activities get him to the doctor again and to the dentist.
Get him to do their homework.
Make them behave more try to get him to behave.
Get a went to bed at night it's a full time job well -- -- the comments that Hilary Rosen made today's certainly have awakened many mama grizzlies across the nation and I know that because I got a lot of emails to -- a lot of text messages from apolitical girlfriend some who have chosen to stay home over the years some for financial reasons others.
Finances weren't really a factor in their choice to stay home.
And the message seems to be.
Why is it that some on that the left choose to divide to.
In site with comments like that instead of just expecting women's choices in what they want to do with the gifts that god has given them sure how they want to contribute because we all have opportunity to contribute.
But then it got two shots in -- one of -- they got a shot and of the class warfare issue which the president has been hammering home.
And they get it did they get they tried to take a shot on Republicans on women just like in the -- reflect -- and -- a deal of the Bill Maher controversy which was ensuing.
It seems it backfires -- we strategy doesn't seem able.
On that they're underestimating the wisdom of the people and the people in this case a lot of moms a lot of women are saying hey you overplayed -- hand on that went let me let me share with your quick text that my sister had sent to me she said.
Oh wait didn't these people slam you court the same winds slamming am Romney because she stayed at home with her five kids -- slam you for not staying at home with your five kids my sister goes on to say.
It's obviously not a mom thing they're slamming it's a conservative think that that's why I sent at because wasn't -- -- -- the argument of the time.
How could you possibly raise children and be the vice president of the same time -- -- -- a -- they really have overplayed their hand on that went very sad very real commentary -- on those who.
I want to invalidate a woman based on the choice that she is making whether she is staying home and work in her butt off in that house or working very hard at home in addition to.
Being able to have a paycheck outside about its interest into -- conservative women have been subjected to the worst attacks.
The most vile names that they've been called you that sadly for you at the top of the list.
And there voices have been silent starting with the president who lectures us about the coarseness of of the light -- engine and the lack of civility in the culture.
But he never he never speaks out when it's a conservative woman be and attacked and this happens with.
Regularity so we don't -- to our president to speak for us and we will Begin a we will have an eight we will be silent no more on an issue like this.
Really -- -- it it is as -- say a sad commentary though on.
This to this attempt to invalidate a woman for the choices that she's making.
When really we should be -- -- all be standing up for each other when you consider what's going on in this country.
All women and all races and all ages.
We are all suffering under Obama's economy and we need to make -- and liberals were pro choice so you can he got to make their choice now here's until here's the hypocrisy.
They are not for women's choices and eat quality and -- respecting a woman's.
Personal that values or -- she wants to make.
And less it has to do with that woman embracing their radical agenda left agenda.
We're gonna take a break wanna ask you about.
