The wife of U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., is weighing in on the controversial remarks made by a Democratic strategist that asserted Ann Romney “never worked a day in her life”, which has sparked a furious debate over the role of state-at-home mothers.

Appearing on CNN earlier this week, Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen criticized Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s ability to relate to women who work full time while raising children. Rosen said the GOP frontrunner shouldn’t use his wife as a barometer because she hasn’t faced tough economic choices due to their affluence.

In response, Ann Romney defended herself via Twitter and an uproar has ensued.

Kelley Paul says she understands being both a woman in the workforce and a mother, adding the Obama administration is engaging in a “war on the family.”

“I’ve seen both sides of the equation. I worked for a decade in marketing for the telecommunications industry and for more than a decade raising three sons. I stand with Ann Romney and millions of other moms who know that being a full time mom to young children is definitely hard work,” she says. “This administration’s attack dogs and their cynical attempts to rally their extreme base will backfire. They should call a cease fire to their war on the family.”
