Mitt plans to hide behind Ann's skirts 'cause Obama's so mean

Mitt plans to hide behind Ann's skirts 'cause Obama's so mean

by Kaili Joy Gray

Oh, this is just too good to be true:

(T)he Romney campaign could begin using the candidate's sympathetic wife as a shield.

In an interview with BuzzFeed about the Obama campaign's recent assault on Romney's personal finances, a Romney adviser repeatedly brought up Ann Romney's name unprompted, arguing that the attacks were aimed at her as well.

There's no way this story could be true, though, because if it were true, it would look as if Mitt Romney has run out of lies and retroactive explanations to avoid answering those nagging questions about his finances—you know, the very reason he says he should be president, on account of how super-awesome he is at, like, finances. (Except at Bain, where he had nothing to do with anything. Or at the Olympics where he had nothing to do with anything. Or as governor of Massachusetts, where he had nothing to do with anything.)

This story could not possibly be true because if it were true, the Romney campaign would be admitting they've got no real answers and are going for the ultimate Hail Mary. If it were true, it would be the most despicably cynical attempt to hide behind a spouse since Rick Santorum blamed his wife for writing that stuff in his book people didn't like.

After insisting that spouses are off limits, after claiming that St. Ann is beyond reproach, after Ann herself said she just loves being "attacked" as long as she can milk it—the Romney team is going to outright admit they're all out of ideas so they're just going to use Ann as a shield.

Romney is a coward. Nothing is ever his fault: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10021013748

3. Romney's three responses:

1) Not my fault.

2) Leave Ann alone.

3) Apologize!

7. I think this is exactly what he's going to start doing

and he'll send his wife out to campaign and talk about her MS while she attacks Obama.
