Ann Romney Says We are Lucky to have Mitt so stop the sniping…we are lucky?

“During an interview early this evening with Radio Iowa, Mrs. Romney directly addressed her fellow Republicans who’ve criticized her husband.
“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.” The criticism and very public hand wringing from Republicans comes as national polls show the race between Romney and President Obama is essentially tied. “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.”*
So we are lucky? Can you imagine the backlash Mrs. Obama would get if she made a remark like this? If she told us how lucky we were to have President Obama as our president people would call her arrogant, elitist, you name it, but how will they characterize Ann romney? Share your thoughts.

    FLOTUS is still trying to live down the “for the first time in my adult life I’m proud of my country” remark she made over four years ago, so I agree it would not have gone over well. I do have to say that when it comes to the spouses; the campaign doesn’t seem nearly as nasty as it was before or maybe I’m just imagining things.

    Considering that this president is the least qualified individual to ever occupy that office in all of history, I can only think how hilarious that comment coming from her would be.

      It’s an arrogant comment coming from Mrs. Romney but you don’t acknowledge that you just take this as another opportunity to bash the president. You know it is possible to support someone without agreeing with everything they say or do.

        You asked your readers to share their thoughts. I did. I don’t agree that her comment is arrogant because she was speaking about her husband not herself.

        My reply was my honest thought response to the idea of Michelle Obama attempting to sell the notion to the nation that we are lucky to have the current president after the havoc he has created during the last three and half years. I laugh even now as I imagine that.

      Bill, I started to disagree with you and mentinon “Jimmah Cattah”, but then I re-read your comment. Jimmy Carter is the WORST PERFORMING INDIVIDUAL to ever occupy that office, but at least he’d spent some time in the military and had served as a Governor. President Obama’s resume is indeed pretty thin when it comes to executive experience, making big decisions and understanding economics and business, That’s not bashing, btw, that’s stating facts. Case in point: The president stated that he believes automation destroys jobs. His staff patiently tried to explain to him that automation increases efficiency and frees up people to perform other tasks faster and more efficiently, but he just didn’t get it. Obama thinks that businesses and corporations pay taxes directly. He doesn’t get that businesses and corporations pass along their increased costs to their customers. Things like this tell us that Mr. Obama is a victim of the Peter Principle, and a second term will not make it any better for him or for us.

    Has anyone stopped to consider her audience? She’s talking to the people who are supposed to be SUPPORTING her husband. It’s perfectly fine to tell members of your own team that you need to quit whining and play the cards you’re dealt. If she was talking to all America, I’d agree it would be arrogant. Politics is a tough business and you have enough to deal with without whining from the ranks.
