GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s wife, Ann, joined Twitter tonight to lash back at liberal CNN commentator Hilary Rosen’s attack on her choice to be a stay-at-home mom. Rosen mocked Romney for “never working a day in her life.”

Watch:

Many Twitter users also had deservedly harsh words for Rosen’s snide swipe at the mother of five and cancer/MS survivor:

RT @ggitcho: @BarackObama adviser Hilary Rosen attacks Ann Romney, an MS, cancer survivor & mom of 5, for "never working a day in her life"

— Ryan Williams (@RyanGOP) April 12, 2012

Hillary Rosen says Ann Romney "never worked a day in her life." Because being a mother (with MS) to 5 successful sons is a walk in the park.

Dear Hillary Rosen: Your remarks attacking Ann Romney were disgraceful.

— B.Z. (@bzaz) April 12, 2012

WHAT? Oh this really ticks me off. I guess Hillary Rosen says that Ann Romney has never worked a day in her life. #bloodboiling

Hilary Rosen owes Ann Romney an apology.

— Christine K Roberts (@ckroberts) April 12, 2012

If the goal of feminism is to provide women choices, then why would you denigrate the choice of a fellow woman? @hilaryr

Rosen is former career chief lobbyist for the RIAA and “Managing Director of the Public Affairs and Communications Practice of SKDKnickerbocker. A nationally recognized strategist who skillfully navigates the intersection of communications, media and politics in Washington DC . Prior to joining SKDKnickerbocker, Rosen was Managing Partner of the DC office of the Brunswick Group.”

SKDKNickerbocker is the home of former Obama hitwoman Anita Dunn.

Add this to Rosen’s biography: Shameless prog general in the Left’s war on conservative women and stay-at-home moms.

Rosen is digging in on Twitter:

When I said @AC360 Ann Romney never worked I meant she never had to care for her kids AND earn a paycheck like MOST American women! #Truth

— Hilary Rosen (@hilaryr) April 12, 2012

Mitt Romney is running for President, not Ann. He hired only 10%women at Bain; now makes up false concern for women's economic struggle.

— Hilary Rosen (@hilaryr) April 12, 2012

I've nothing against @AnnRomney. I just don't want Mitt using her as an expert on women struggling $ to support their family. She isn't.

— Hilary Rosen (@hilaryr) April 12, 2012

@donnapt My point is that he should stop saying that she is his guide to women's economic problems. She doesn't have any. #IsntItObvious?

— Hilary Rosen (@hilaryr) April 12, 2012

When you’ve lost David Axelrod…

Also Disappointed in Hilary Rosen's comments about Ann Romney. They were inappropriate and offensive.

— David Axelrod (@davidaxelrod) April 12, 2012

And Jim Messina…

I could not disagree with Hilary Rosen any more strongly. Her comments were wrong and family should be off limits. She should apologize.

— Jim Messina (@Messina2012) April 12, 2012

All Democrats should be making this mental note right now: Never hire @hilaryr. Worst PR person ever.

— Teri Christoph (@TeriChristoph) April 12, 2012

Will @BarackObama call Mrs. Romney to apologize for Hilary Rosen's shameful behavior?

— Teri Christoph (@TeriChristoph) April 12, 2012

More from Rosen and her Huffington Post pal Rachel Sklar:

@AnnDRomney I am raising children too. But most young American women HAVE to BOTH earn a living AND raise children. You know that don't u?

— Hilary Rosen (@hilaryr) April 12, 2012

@AnnDRomney Please know, I admire you. But your husband shouldn't say you are his expert on women and the economy. #HeNeedsMore

— Hilary Rosen (@hilaryr) April 12, 2012

oh and @AnnDRomney welcome to Twitter. You will find it a very exhilarating and often unforgiving place!

— Hilary Rosen (@hilaryr) April 12, 2012

So wonderful that @AnnDRomney joined Twitter tonight. Amazing to have her join this important conversat'n opened by @HilaryR. Hope she does.

— rachelsklar (@rachelsklar) April 12, 2012

@rachelsklar @AnnDRomney @hilaryr didn't open a conversation. She talked down all at home mothers and now the campaign is in repair mode.

— Frunkis (@navyvetpc6) April 12, 2012

@michellemalkin Lovin' Twitter because @hilaryr looks so stupid so quickly

— Kathy Needs (@kneeds) April 12, 2012

Naturally, Rosen has milked the spotlight with an insta-Huffington Post column.

The Romneys’ son, Josh, weighs in:

My mom has been able to get more followers in the last hour than I have in the last couple years. Follow her here @AnnDRomney

— Josh Romney (@joshromney) April 12, 2012

@AnnDRomney is one of the smartest, hardest working woman I know. Could have done anything with her life, chose to raise me

— Josh Romney (@joshromney) April 12, 2012

And a stay-at-home-dad talks back to Rosen:
