RPOF to FDP: Forget Allen West's commie comment, focus on Dems 'hateful speech'

What do communists and stay-at-home moms have to do with each other? Grist for the 2012 political outrage machine. Here's Republican Party of Florida Chairman Lenny Curry responding to Florida Democratic Party Chairman Rod Smith who wanted an apology after Congressman Allen West called some Democrats communists:

"Rod Smith could better invest his energy by asking fellow Democrat-leaders like Hilary Rosen to stop their hateful speech against stay-at-home mothers. Women - whether they work outside the home or inside the home - deserve our respect. For those choosing to work outside the home, there has been a tragic collapse in employment under the failed Obama presidency. While President Obama and Chairman Smith focus on political games, Republicans have offered a vision of economic opportunity that helps all Americans support their families and pursue their dreams."
