Ann Romney: "We’ve given all you people need to know and understand about our financial situation."

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0712/78711.html

Ann Romney dismissed concerns about her husband’s tax returns Thursday, contending that the two of them have “given all you people need to know.”

“You know, you should really look at where Mitt has led his life, and where he’s been financially,” the potential First Lady said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “He’s a very generous person. We give 10 percent of our income to our church every year. Do you think that is the kind of person who is trying to hide things, or do things? No. He is so good about it. Then, when he was governor of Massachusetts, didn’t take a salary for four years.”

“We’ve given all you people need to know and understand about our financial situation and how we live our life,” she added later.

How hard is it to generate a political ad given this treasure trove of stupidity.

Frame in on Ann Romney's comment split screen to Marie Antoinette. Although the guillotine may not be pc, the let them eat cake and the overthrow of that ruling aristocracy should resonate with Americans.

Then end with Mitt speaking French.

100. Horses can get you through an illness without being dressage competitors.

Typically the therapy part of having a therapy animal is riding, grooming, caring for, having a relationship with the animal that stretches the limits of your body and cements the bonds of a relationship.

If Rafalca was standing in themiddle of a field and Anne Romney was at one end calling and the paid groom/trainer/stable hand at the other, who do you think the horse would go to?

Well, honey! If "you people" want to live in the White House, you might come forth with a little more information. Donating 10% to the church does not make one an honest person.

She should stay silent, as she never helps the situation. She is a snip that only knows how to talk to the rich. We peons don't cotton to "you people" references. Your "code words" are showing.

gauche parvenu(s).

LM is one of my favorite all-time villainesses in literature No matter what one thinks of LM (and Macbeth clearly loves her), she has class.

Ann Romney is more akin to Mrs. Malaprop (from Sheridan's "The Rivals") or maybe, for cruelty, Joe's first wife (from Dickens' "Great Expectations").

157. Yep. I just knew Juanita Jean would have something to say about this.

Ann Romney: Screw Noblesse Oblige

Now I know I’m not supposed to talk about Ann Romney because the Republicans never, ever, in any way whatsoever speak ill of Michelle Obama, now or ever.

Flip it! I’m sick to death of dancing horses, car elevators, and God-only-knows how many houses while her husband espouses taking health care away from little children and lowering the minimum wage. I do not begrudge her wealth. I begrudge how she got that wealth and her damn arrogance about it. She got that wealth by robbing the middle class of their jobs.

And, now she’s done it. You people? Did Ann Romney just refer to the rest of America, including damn near everybody in the GOP, as “you people?”

Oh, have pity on us, Ann, we of the not-rich. The peons. The workers. The people who clean your house and handmake your cars and your clothes.

22. And then this further insult to President Obama later in the piece

“I’m not disappointed,” she said. “I’m not surprised. I believe it was beneath the dignity of the office of the president to do something as egregious as that.”


Shorter Ann Romney: "Because what else would you expect when you let someone like Barack Obama be president?"

I really, really think attacks on spouses of candidates don't belong in a campaign, but Ann is really good about painting a target on her back.

or even surrogate with deflector shields. If the spouse stays out of it for the most part that is a different matter.

Don't want to be a political target? Stay out of the politics. Want to participate in the politics with your spouse? Be prepared to be a target.

be the headline. Because that is all the Obama ad is, Romney's documented financial information. Overlaid on a very poor rendering of America The Beautiful. And, of course, because that is how Mitt will be if he gets in office.

required to tithe at least 10% annually to their 'church'. If it's revealed that he gives more to them than he pays in taxes, he's screwed. If it's revealed that he gives only 10%, the LDS church won't be happy either. So, two more reasons that he's reluctant to release financial info. And "you people" vote, Annie dear.

Someone should inform Mrs. Romney if "us people" are going to pay their hard-earned tax dollars for The Romneys to live in OUR White House and pay their salaries, then "us people" are essentially their •employers•.

If The Romneys don't want to submit to a financial background check + drug test & other vetting that employers typically do before hiring, then The Romneys shouldn't get the JOB.

"Us people" would be fine w/ that.

Thu Jul 19, 2012, 10:09 AM

39. Well.......

 

Let's parse her statement:

(1) Very generous - 10% to his church
That is probably true because of the LDS Church's tithing requirement. If you look, however, at how that money is then spent by his church, the "generosity" becomes less clear. Mormons do have a tremendous social support structure in that they help members of the Church to a degree possibly not seen in other U.S. churches.

But they use a lot of that money to buy and run expansive businesses. And then there is their charitable "hate" giving such as their bankrolling in the Prop 8 campaign in California.

(2) No salary as Governor
I would be interested to see if he was still secretly CEO of Bain Capital while he was governor. If he was collecting a handsome salary as CEO then he probably didn't need a salary as governor.

But let's be clear, I have no doubt that Mittens used his governorship to establish credentials as an elected official to springboard a run for President (in his father's footsteps). After his tenure as governor he made a failed attempt for U.S. Senate against Teddy. And since 2006 he has been running for President.

(3) "You People"
Ann, you don't get to decide what information we need to know and understand when Mittens' entire campaign is on how he can turn the economy around. If he committed one or more crimes we need to know. If he oversaw a company that routinely off shored American jobs, we need to know. It is possible to have a good view into someone's character by watching how they conduct business, how far they push the legal envelope, etc. in the name of wealth.

So Ann, enjoy the Olympics. We wouldn't be too sad if you decided to stay there. You do know the Queen is quite fond of horses. Maybe you could get a job.

Think about it.. the Mormon Church builds these massive projects, buys and runs all kinds of companies, and SOMEONE gets the contracts to do the work, to manage them, etc. That is not donated labor or services. There is a return on the investment, no doubt for the massive business interests.

Still stunned by their absolute arrogance. It is truly arrogance that "you people" are seeing.

Are these people so clueless that they distance themselves from the human race? "You people" - like they are not one of us? But of course they think they are above "we the people". I hope to hell these worthless a-holes are brought to their knees. IF there is any integrity left in the rethug party (which of course there is not) there will be a brokered convention. I want to see this elitist POS vilified on a national stage - along with his botoxed bimbo. What a pathetic duo the Republican Party has chosen to represent them.

123. Isn't that nice.

You spend your entire life screwing over the people, plants, animals and environment of this world and then claim we just don't get it.
Well fuck you! I get it! Your the standard 'I got mine. Fuck you." Wall St loving American I see every day of my life. Your the one who leads to more & more speculation of the only things still left worth saving on this planet. Your the ones who are literally sucking the life out of the next generations who will have to live in your mess. Your the ones who history will point the finger at as being the driver behind climate change, famine and acidic oceans. Your the ones whose place is only becoming more concrete with every blood dollar you draw from tomorrows children.
Your position is all but assured. Your legacy is death. Your god is greed. Your heart is cold as ice. The world will sing when your ilk are absent. When polar bears, salmon, bald eagles & every other imaginable creature that suffers from your wanton disregard for anything but your own wealth can live in peace. When we can start to rebuild the earth to actually make it a place a baby would like to be born in and not a hellish corporate abyss of money over liberty, dividends over justice, options over freedom. Lot of good people died striving to create this land we live in and claim to love. They would be sickened and ashamed at what we have done with it.

131. I don't remember the part of "The Wizard of Oz"

where Dorothy tells Auntie Em to go fuck herself. Maybe I have an edited version.

133. Oh, no, Auntie Em wants to tell 'the witch' off who comes to take away Toto, but can't

because she's a 'good Christian woman'.

141. A thousand pardons, Your Grace

I mean... really. We ARE looking at HOW he has led his life and where he's been (and where he's at) financially. That is WHY we have so many questions. The fact that the Mormon church demands a 10% tithe is well known to anyone who cares to know anything about Mormons. As for not taking a salary... Ann... do you know what a PR stunt is? You should, after all, being of the elite class in this Country... be a little bit more educated than us people. Perhaps you could direct some of your (or your husband's) great wealth towards the furthering of your education... or the beginning of it. Whatever the case may be.

I'm just a GED educated nitwit, but even I know something smells fishy here.

143. When talking to her country club friends it's "your people"

"When I come to visit your lovely estate, have your people pull my car around back and give it a wax job, oh and make sure they bring in my bags."

154. "You People" = Shades of Ross Perot

Perot used it to address a black audience ... she's used it to address
little inconsequential lesser mortals.

Let them eat cake!

155. It's a nice trick they are playing

They send Ann Romney out to tearfully talk about her illness, she attacks President Obama. If we attack back we look like monsters.

156. No surprises with old Ann is there?

What a contemptuous and condescending bitch. She does not deserve to set foot in the White House. She really is too busy playing with her pony anyway.

165. I think she needs to read up on the Romanovs a bit.

This just adds fodder to the "over-privileged" meme. Fuck her. There's no excuse for this kind of thinking. I don't care how sheltered you've been. "Romney" sounds a lot like "Romanov".

167. YOU PEOPLE don't ask, WE don't tell

This "disclosure" of an obligatory 10% tithe to the Mormon Church settles it once and for all. No more annoying questions, PEOPLE!
