Palin: Hilary Rosen 'Awakened Mama Grizzlies Across The Nation'

Former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin says that comments made by a CNN Democratic pundit about Ann Romney will inspire "mama grizzlies" to stand up against "the divisiveness that is President Obama."

During an interview with Fox New host Sean Hannity on Thursday, Palin declared that Hillary Rosen's claim that Ann Romney had “never worked a day in her life" was just another example of "class warfare" on the part of Democrats.

"The comments that Hillary Rosen made today certainly have awakened many mama grizzlies across the nation," the former Alaska governor asserted. "And I know that because I got a lot of emails today — a lot of text messages from apolitical girlfriends, some who have chosen to stay home over the years."

"The message seems to be that why is it that some on the left choose to divide, to incite with comments with comments like that instead of just respecting women's choices and what they want to do with the gifts that God has given them, how they want to contribute," she added.

President Barack Obama on Thursday spoke out in Ann Romney's defense by calling Rosen's comments "the wrong thing to say."

But Hannity wondered why the president had never called Palin to apologize after HBO comedian Bill Maher, who has contributed to a pro-Obama super PAC, used offensive language to describe the former governor.

"[Obama] is confronted with a quandary and a moral dilemma, and that dilemma is Bill Maher who called you very offensive names, attacked your family and children, attacked Rick Santorum's children," Hannity explained. "He donates a million dollars to the president. Now, they don't return the money. Have you ever received a phone call? Has your daughter ever received a phone call from the president?"

"Never received a phone call," Palin replied. "But I think, again, that's more of the same, of the inconsistencies, the double standards, the divisiveness that is kind of represented by President Obama and the people that he surrounds himself with."

"So, we don't look for our president to speak for us," she said. "We will be silent no more on an issue like this. Really it is, as I say, a sad commentary though on this attempt to invalidate a woman for the choices that she's making when really we should be unified. All women should 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."

"I thought liberals were pro-choice," Hannity quipped. "So you got to make their choice?"

"Here's the hypocrisy: They are not for women's choices and equality and respecting a woman's personal values or choices she wants to make unless it has to do with that woman embracing their radical left agenda," Palin concluded.
