Mitt And Ann Romney: A Sense Of Entitlement And Arrogance, And “Spoiled Brat Prima Donnas”!

Mitt Romney has the gall to laugh and say he wants Barack Obama to “start packing”! He shows himself to be a “spoiled brat prima donna”, who has a sense of entitlement, and a high level of arrogance!

And Anne Romney, who once might have been thought to be a “nice lady”, now comes across as a “spoiled brat prima donna”, who says that she got an early “birthday gift” by the outrage that erupted from the comment of Hillary Rosen about her last week. She also has a sense of entitlement, and a high level of arrogance!

Mitt Romney has made it clear that motherhood as an option is fine for privileged women such as his wife, but not for poor women, who, with children as young as two years old ,should be expected to pursue the “dignity of work”!

The more one thinks about Ann Romney, one has to wonder if she did not have all kinds of help bringing up her five sons!

If she did not, then her husband is more of a “male chauvinist pig” than anyone imaginable, considering he certainly could afford to have help for her!

Also, it must be said that Ann Romney, as a teenager, saw a handsome, rich guy named Mitt Romney, realized it was her meal ticket so she would not have to work, and was willing to convert to the Mormon faith, tell her parents they could not attend the wedding in the Mormon Temple in Salt Lake City, Utah, and then had the gall to allow her dead father, who was an atheist, to be converted posthumously to the Mormon faith!

Is this a woman to admire? Yes, one might say, because she has overcome cancer and has had symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis for years.

Well, those conditions are indeed terrible, and we can sympathize with her on those factors, but how about the many poor and middle class women, many of them single mothers, who have faced the same situation, and did not have the availability of health care that a wealthy lady like Ann Romney has had, and in many cases also could not afford the treatments needed, and therefore have not survived to the age of 63 as Ann Romney has!

Ann Romney is no longer a sympathetic figure, sorry to say, and it is clear both Romneys have a sense of entitlement and a high level of arrogance!

What the American people need to do is let them know on November 6, 2012, that they can go back to their wealthy private life, with the obscenely big mansion in California, with the automobie elevator, and leave America alone!

Mitt Romney And The National Rifle Association Convention: Total Hypocrisy!

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, seemingly secure in being the GOP Presidential nominee, gave a speech at the National Rifle Association convention in St. Louis, Missouri today, utilizing his wife Ann to mention how much they both admire all mothers, part of their hypocritical response to Hillary Rosen, a Democratic strategist and CNN contributor, who said that Ann Romney had never worked a day in her life.

Losing the woman’s vote by a vast margin at present, the two are exploiting that comment by Rosen in a despicable manner, but even worse was the pandering of Mitt Romney to the NRA, a group which has been lukewarm to him.

Why should not the NRA be skeptical of Mitt Romney? Because when he ran for Senator against Ted Kennedy in 1994, and as Governor of Massachusetts from 2003-2007, Mitt Romney emphasized gun control and criticized the NRA.

This is another example of the total hypocrisy and phoniness of Mitt Romney, and does anyone really believe him? If so, such persons are extremely naive!

And of course, after the Trayvon Martin murder in Florida, Romney should have condemned the “Stand Your Ground” laws backed by the NRA, and in effect in 25 states, but Romney has no interest in anything but winning the White House, no matter how much he comes across as disingenuous!

So Mitt Romney is really Pinocchio, as he continues to lie and deceive, and his nose is getting longer and longer!

The Controversy Over Ann Romney: A Cover For The Horrible Record On Women Of The Republican Party!

Ann Romney, the wife of Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney, is a very attractive and pleasant lady, without doubt.

Ann Romney is, obviously, a great mother, who has nurtured five handsome, accomplished sons.

Ann Romney is a wonderful wife to Mitt Romney, very dedicated to his success and advancement, and wishes to make him happy.

There is no debate about the goodness of Ann Romney, and were she to become First Lady of the United States, she would fulfill the roles of that position with grace, dignity, and class.

The controversy over Ann Romney, stirred up by Democratic operative Hillary Rosen, while regrettable, is really quite ridiculous on its surface, however.

Hillary Rosen, NOT a spokesman for the Obama Presidential campaign, simply said that for Mitt Romney to say that his wife can provide him with a real indication of the problems of American women, is preposterous, and that is totally a true statement!

Ann Romney, like her husband, Mitt Romney, does not and cannot understand the reality of life for middle class and poor Americans, no matter how hard they try, and to claim she is an expert on women’s needs, based on the fact she is Mitt’s wife, is ridiculous to the sublime!

Ann Romney has not experienced what 99 percent of other women face–the daily problems of how to keep a family going in a country in which most women need to work, besides those who desire to work, and a country in which there are too many single mothers who struggle every day to be good parents, while juggling the bills and two to three jobs in many cases.

Ann Romney is a privileged aristocrat, very fortunate and blessed to have a situation that very few women will ever have, and while she may have done some volunteer work, that is not the same as facing work, PLUS child care.

One has to wonder whether Ann Romney really brought up her own sons all on her own, without paid help! It is hard to believe that a man with such wealth growth did not provide staff to help his wife bring up their sons.

And as tough as her five sons might have been at times, being kids, it is hard to imagine a strict Mormon family in which the kids are that unruly and disrespectful, as to make her life that difficult and challenging!

There is no debate that being a full time mother is a tough job, and the most important job a woman can have. But very few women today have the ability to just be mothers, and not also have to work, so if one is doing both, it is automatically rougher than what Ann Romney had to deal with on a daily basis!

We can give tribute to Ann Romney as a great mother with great sons, but it must be accepted that her life was NEVER as tough and complex, as challenging and overwhelming, as the middle class or poor couple, or middle class and poor single mothers, trying to deal with the stresses and strains of everyday life that most American parents, and single mothers, face!

What is clear is that the Republican Party has so messed up their relationship with women, and the issues that women care about, that now they see an opening to put the Obama Presidency on trial, as if saying that a housewife such as Ann Romney has an easy job, a false and petty assertion, is enough to make them look sympathetic to women, and make them look great as Mother’s Day comes this Sunday!

Just face the facts: Ann Romney is very privileged, fortunate and thankful for her circumstances, and good for her!

But the reality is that Ann Romney lives in a parallel universe, which only a small sliver of women in America join her in, and it is still the fact that the GOP has declared “war” on women, without, of course, using that term. But it is fact, not myth, and the Republican Party will suffer in November because of their self imposed harm and damage, demonstrating suicidal tendencies on what women will accept from politicians in the 21st century!
