Who criticized her life as a stay at home mom? The criticism was directed at Romney not really about Ann. It was about him relying solely upon her as an adviser on women’s issues.

I don’t think it’s fair to invalidate her opinion on women’s issues just because she’s a stay at home mom. Imagine if a man had said that Mrs Romney’s opinions on working mothers was invalid because she was a stay at home mom. It would be terribly insulting. I’m sure Mrs Romney is a decent and intelligent person and her opinions are reasonably well informed and thought out.
I’m also fairly certain that she isn’t Mitt’s sole source of information about issues regarding working mothers so it’s not really politically important. He said something nice about listening to his wife’s advice, I don’t think it’s a big deal.
