The unmitigated gall of this “privileged” woman is rather unpleasant, in my view. The “all you people…” part is what’s so damned unacceptable here…
Mitt Romney’s wife is reinforcing her husband’s refusal to make public several years of tax returns, saying “we’ve given all you people need to know” about the family’s finances.
“You know, you should really look at where Mitt has led his life, and where he’s been financially,” she said. “He’s a very generous person. We give 10 percent of our income to our church every year. Do you think that is the kind of person who is trying to hide things, or do things? No. He is so good about it. Then, when he was governor of Massachusetts, didn’t take a salary for four years.”
Ann Romney told ABC News she thinks the Obama campaign’s attacks on her husband have been “beneath the dignity of the presidency.” And she said people will decide whom to vote for based on whether their lives would be better under Mitt Romney than President Barack Obama.
She said that ultimately she believes voters are “going to fire the coach.”
