“Objective” Fox News reporter Carl Cameron offered his thoughts after Ann Romney’s speech last night – and what a coincidence! He just happened to echo the “Romneys are just regular folks we can all relate to” theme that Fox’s Chris Wallace and Megyn Kelly have recently promoted and that Ann Romney, herself, had just put forth. But I think Cameron may have taken it a bit too far when he bubbled that Mrs. Romney is “very normal, very average.”
Here’s what Cameron said:
One of the things people often say when they first meet Mitt Romney’s wife, Ann, is that she’s so normal, she’s like your best friend’s Mom when you go visit after school and she bakes you cookies but also tells you to tuck in your shirt. Very normal, very average and yet today’s speech was exactly what Republicans have been crying out for, for a peek into the real Mitt Romney. This assertion that they don’t know who he is – she painted a picture that to those who know him is precisely what he’s been all along: decent, determined, disciplined and really – kind of making it very clear that he’s not gonna be stopped by political criticism. He’s going to follow his convictions.
Yes, Ann Romney is just like your best friend’s Mom – assuming your best friend’s Mom owns a multimillion-dollar beachfront house with a car elevator in La Jolla. And assuming you think that’s “very normal, very average.”
As for "making it very clear" Mitt Romney will not be "stopped by political criticism" but will "follow his convictions," well, it's hard to imagine that even Cameron really believed what he was saying.
I bet Ann Romney will never get near the Governess, er, Governor for fear of smelling like Rafalca and giving the wrong impression.
She does not live paycheck by paycheck like the rest of the masses. She does not have to choose between paying a bill or buying food. She does not have $5-20 left in a bank after paying rent or mortgage, utilities, insurance, bills and food. She does not take the bus to work like millions of Americans. She does not have to worry about health care for her family because she can afford it, unlike the millions of masses without health care.
The Millionaire’s Wife knows nothing about the struggles the working class masses is going through, absolutely nothing. She can never relate to the working class masses.
Ann is part of the TeaBagger Aspirational Marketing ploy. As John Steinbeck said:
“Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.”
Line Up Suckers, let Ann Sell You The All New POTUS for 2012!!!!
MagicUnderwear Mitt and the Mrs. are super-wealthy, arrogant elitists who have lived their entire adult lives in luxury. They neither know or care about normal, average people.
MagicUnderwear Mitt’s only political principle is that he will say anything to get elected. His slavish obedience to the teabaggers who control the Repug Party is scary.
If puke cameron were a salesman depending on a commission, he’d starve. In other words, his salesmanship sucks big time. None of my mom’s friends pay $900 for a t-shirt, own 2 Caddys, own a $70,000 purebred horse, own multiple homes, or employed 5 nannies at any given time. They never looked down their noses at others or called people not in their economic class “you people”.
Women in the reality based world do not relate to Mrs Etch-a-Sketch Rmoney-Expert Liar. She’s no where near very normal or very average.
She and Mitt were able to go to school and not have to work and lived off money invested by mitts dad.
She goes to a country club. She has how many homes? and how many cars?
No, she is not your average woman.
How could she be?
I started work a week before my 16th birthday. i worked all through college and when my kids were born. I sometimes cleaned for extra money.
I pay my FAIR share of taxes and but percentage wise I pay more then ANN and Mitt.
The republicans are whining about how horribly POTUS Obama screwed up this country.
So, if the country is in such bad shape, how could ann romney be average??
