Mitt Romney now infamously said this of his wife, ”We use Ann sparingly right now, so that people don’t get tired of her.” Of course, Mitt probably knows his spouse best, but she seems charming enough, right? She certainly luuuuuuuuuuuuuves women! Well, as it turns out, the fear might not be that we’ll get tired of her as much as the fact that she’ll get tired of us, demonstrably so.
In an interview with Radio Iowa, Ann Romney had this to say to Republicans who have been critical of the floundering Romney presidential campaign (emphasis added):
“Stop it. This is hard. You want to try it? Get in the ring,” she said. “This is hard and, you know, it’s an important thing that we’re doing right now and it’s an important election and it is time for all Americans to realize how significant this election is and how lucky we are to have someone with Mitt’s qualifications and experience and know-how to be able to have the opportunity to run this country.”
“It’s nonsense and the chattering class…you hear it and then you just let it go right by,” she told Radio Iowa. “…Honestly, at this point, I’m not surprised by anything.”
Americans, realize how lucky you are to have a man of his class sacrifice himself for mere public servitude (a.k.a., the Presidency).
I guess we’re supposed to simply take her word for it, since Romney’s record as governor has been erased from computers. His time at Bain is a mystery and his taxes (despite a recent release of last year) are none of our business. All we have to judge a potential Romney presidency are his words and so far, they are anything but confidence-inspiring, especially for those of us who aren’t wealthy. According to Ann Romney, even that is setting too high a standard. In the meantime, it will be Romneys who accuse half of Americans of feeling entitled.
