Let's not forget that Ann Romney's church excommunicated ERA supporters.

So, having her lecture us about "choices" is similar to her trying to relate to poor students by citing how she and Mittens had to "sell off some of our stock" to get through college.

Cry me a fucking river, you goddamned hypocrite.

1. Repukes are all "goddamned hypocrites" so your comment is well-stated.

 

The mainstream media is full of the god damned hypocrites too for constantly "reporting" what the psychopath repukes say as if it's news. It's not news, it's inflammatory bullshit widely publicized to elicit an emotional response. It's pure propaganda:

3. I couldn't believe she made a statement like that so did some checking...

OMG...this woman is living on a different planet than the rest of us. This is from an interview she did
for the Boston Globe in 1994. Staying home was Mitt's idea and she was "delighted"



“We stayed till Mitt graduated in 1971, and when he was accepted at Harvard Law, we came east. He was also accepted at Harvard Business School as part of a joint program that admits 25 a year, so he was getting degrees from Harvard Law and Business schools at the same time.

“Remember, we’d been paying $62 a month rent, but here, rents were $400, and for a dump. This is when we took the now-famous loan that Mitt talks about from his father and bought a $42,000 home in Belmont, and you know? The mortgage payment was less than rent. Mitt saw that the Boston market was behind Chicago, LA and New York. We stayed there seven years and sold it for $90,000, so we not only stayed for free, we made money. As I said, Mitt’s very bright.

“Another son came along 18 months later, although we waited four years to have the third, because Mitt was still in school and we had no income except the stock we were chipping away at. We were living on the edge, not entertaining. No, I did not work. Mitt thought it was important for me to stay home with the children, and I was delighted.


So let’s conservatively say that they got through five years as students—neither one of them working—only by “chipping away at” assets of $60,000 in 1969 dollars (about $377,000 today).
