Ann Romney Begs Women to Support Her Husband

Illustration for article titled Ann Romney Begs Women to Support Her Husband

At a pancake breakfast this morning in Moline, Illinois, Ann Romney took to the mic and addressed all of her sisters in robothood. (Sidenote: the Romneys just cannot get enough pancakes.) She started by saying she is "really upset" with Obama's policies, and then tried to get us to bond over our anger: "I love it that women are upset, too, that women are talking about the economy." It's true that women do know what money is, which is one of the few things we have in common with the Romneys. And it's this supposed obsession with money which she'd like to use to secure our votes for Mitt:

Women are talking about jobs, women are talking about deficit spending. Thank you, women. We need you. We all need you in November, too. We have to remember why we're upset and what we've got to do to fix things.


Way to not sound desperate at all, Ann. But you do make a great point. We do need to remember why we're upset. For starters, we should remember that we're upset about Mitt's idea to "get rid of" Planned Parenthood. We're upset that he's anti-choice and that he's seeking to be the head of a party that seems to have far more interest in waging war on women's rights and our access to basic healthcare services than getting us jobs and reducing our deficit. Oh, and we're upset that you made your dog ride on the roof of your car. Just a few things for us gals to remember come election day.

You know, everyone keeps telling me that me and my friends are constantly talking about fiscal spending. Yet, I don't think I have ever said the words "fiscal spending" to any of my friends, ever. Maybe we are all low-brow? Also, I don't understand how people like Romney at all. I don't agree with Rick Santorum's views (or anyone on the Republican side really), but I can at least understand why people are drawn to him. He is at least passionate about his insane issues, so if you thought like him, I could see why you'd like him. But Romney is just ...awkward. He always sounds fake, or like he is feigning enthusiasm. Maybe he really does care about some issues, but it just never comes across that way.
