President Barack Obama tried to quash a brewing political mess this afternoon by absolutely slamming Hilary Rosen's comments on Ann Romney.
First, he told an ABC affiliate: "There's no tougher job than being a mom." Not even the President, apparently.
Then he doubled down on past comments that a candidate's family should be off limits:
“I don’t have a lot of patience for commentary about the spouses of political candidates,” he told KCRG.
