Obama: Spouses are 'off-limits' in campaigns


President Obama responded to democratic strategist Hilary Rosen’s comments about Ann Romney having never worked a day in her life by saying that it was an “ill-advised statement by somebody on television.”  In an interview with the Columbus affiliate WCMH, he also said that spouses are “off-limits” because they have a “really tough job.”

In an interview with NBC affiliate WCMH, the President calls Rosen's comments "ill-advised."

The President and the rest of the Democratic establishment has been quick to distance themselves from the comments that have become a rallying and fundraising cry for the Romney campaign but also the Republican National Committee.
