EXCLUSIVE: Rafalca Romney, Mitt Romney's Dressage Horse, Speaks to the Voice!
When you get hurt, who pays for your health care?
Sadly, Mitt must come out-of-pocket for all my expenses. But rest easy, America. My pampering is tax deductible, apparently, so you can all feel good that you're subsidizing the Romneys' dressage hobby.
Do you prefer Romneycare or Obamacare?
I didn't know there was a difference, but I can assure you neither is as good as Rafalcacare.
Who's your favorite team mate on Team USA?
I love my rider, Jan Ebeling. It's pretty surreal to have him on my back all day and then get messages from him on Twitter, but that's just the kind of partnership we have.
Does Mitt ever take you out for a spin? What's it really like to run around between Mitt's thighs?
Next time I see Sean Hannity, I'll ask him.
How does riding you help treat Anne's MS?
If riding dressage horses helps relieve Ann's MS symptoms, then I'm all for it. But let's be honest: It cost the Romneys a fortune to turn me into an Olympian, and it had nothing to do with MS.
teh stupid, it burns

3. That horse won't run
The whole MS - Olympics - Ann Romney - tax deduction thing is a mess and a distraction. It comes off as attacking Ann Romney. A tax deduction on $77K for a guy who may be in the 0% tax bracket is literally NOTHING.
There is much better stuff to use against Mitt. Team Obama is doing a great job with this campaign and I trust them to continue to lay waste of Mitt Romney.

4. And the tax deduction is wrong - they tried to claim $77k deduction. The IRS allowed $49.
That's it. $49.
Ann doesn't ride or use Rafalca for her MS, she has her own therapy horse for that. Rafalca is a business investment for a wealthy woman who likes the sport.
I agree there's better stuff to use against Mitt. The misinformation being spread about dressage, Ann's MS, her horse business only serves to make us look ignorant.
