Neil Cavuto and Ann Romney – each of whom suffers from MS – held a poignant conversation on Your World on Monday (3/5/12) about what it’s like to suffer from the disease and how it changes your life. And we would never have criticized the discussion if it hadn’t been used as a blatant political ploy to make the Romneys look more like regular folks struggling like the rest of us. In fact, after Mrs. Romney shared how the illness has given her a “larger capacity” for “understanding and sympathy” for other people’s problems, Cavuto came right out and suggested the couple do more to show that humanistic side of the family. Even more astonishingly, she said she would “take that as good advice.” So it was with a big dash of skepticism that we received her comment, “I don’t even consider myself wealthy.”
Romney told Cavuto:
"We can be poor in spirit (laughing), and I don't even consider myself wealthy, which is an interesting thing. It can be here today and gone tomorrow. And how I measure riches is by the friends I have and the loved ones I have and the people that I care about in my life, and that's where my values are and those are where my riches are."
The fact is that maybe Mrs. Romney doesn’t think of herself as wealthy but it’s an astonishing statement when your husband is worth nearly a quarter billion dollars. But her remark went right by Cavuto without comment.
During a forum on faith Saturday night at Saddleback Church, McCain was asked, “Where do you move from middle class to rich?”
“If you’re just talking about income, how about five million?” McCain quipped.
