DNC backs off dressage attack ads

But on Wednesday, the DNC apologized for offending Ann Romney, who has cited horse riding as a crucial part of her MS treatment.

"Our use of the Romneys’ dressage horse was not meant to offend Mrs. Romney in any way, and we regret it if it did,” DNC spokesman Brad Woodhouse told ABC News. “We were simply making a point about Gov. Romney’s failure to give straight answers on a variety of issues in this race. We have no plans to invoke the horse any further, to avoid misinterpretation.”

In an interview with "Good Morning America" on Thursday, Romney said she thought the ads were inappropriate but made her laugh.

"It's like 'Really?' You know, there's so many people out of work right now, and there's this guy right here that has the answers for fixing the economy, and all these attacks are going to be — they're going to try everything," Romney said. "They're going to throw spaghetti at the wall."
