Ann Romney: “I love the fact that there are women out there who don’t have a choice”
Ann Romney, her husband’s greatest asset, seems to have all the charm he does when it comes to addressing average Americans. Speaking before the Connecticut Republican Party’s Prescott Bush Awards Dinner in Stamford, she told a heartbreaking story of struggle and hardship. As Daily Kos’ Kaili Joy Gray puts it:
Ann shared many harrowing tales of struggle, from having to watch her husband “not getting the proper treatment at times,” to doing laundry. Because Mitt Romney’s chief lady stuff adviser is quite certain that the best way for her to connect with the common (wo)man, is to continue insisting that she, the wife of a multi-millionaire, is just a regular mom with regular problems and regular struggles and she knows just how hard it is to raise a family on nothing but your husband’s stock portfolio, the house your father-in-law the governor bought you, and today’s equivalent of a couple hundred grand.
And then, she let let this slip:
“I love the fact that there are women out there who don’t have a choice and they must go to work and they still have to raise the kids. Thank goodness that we value those people too. And sometimes life isn’t easy for any of us.”
