Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen has canceled her upcoming appearance on "Meet the Press," after being in the limelight for over twenty-four hours for her comments about Ann Romney.

Rosen was scheduled to appear as part of the political news show's roundtable on Sunday. On Friday, she released a statement to NBC announcing the decision.

She apologized, saying, "But I have said enough and while I have unfortunately made the Producer's job tougher today, I don't have anything more to say... I will instead spend the weekend trying to explain to my kids the value of admitting a mistake and moving on."

She caused a kerfuffle on Wednesday when she questioned Mitt Romney's claim that his wife kept him connected to women's position on economic issues. She said that Ann Romney has "never worked a day in her life," prompting people to defend stay-at-home moms.
