View Full Version : Ann Romney makes me think of Judge Judy

I don't mean in physical resemblance. I refer to Ann's comments about other Republicans "deserting ship" when she says, "This is hard......."

The reason this reminds me of Judge Judy is that she frequently tells litigants, "This isn't hard if you tell the truth, because then you don't need such a good memory"

Ann also went on to tell us Mitt doesn't need the job, which sounded to me like she thinks he's doing us a favor by running.

I sometimes think of thinks I would do if I had his financial resources. Running for president isn't on that list. He seems to have no core beliefs, as they change so often, which begs the question of why he is running.

Maybe this is just a hobby for him.

To get back to my point, it does seem like he's having trouble remembering what he's supposed so say about any particular issue at any particular time to any particular group.

I guess that is hard.

I bet he'd make a better president than GW.

Hopefully we won't find out.

Seen this?

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—The Borowitz Report has obtained the following confidential letter from Ann Romney to members of the Republican Party:

Dear Fellow-Republican,
I’m not a happy camper.
Over the past few days, some so-called Republicans have taken it upon themselves to lob some pretty harsh words in the direction of my husband. Now, it’s one thing when Mitt gets criticized by the forty-seven per cent of Americans who are parasites sucking at capitalism’s teat. But when former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan calls his campaign “a rolling calamity,” it’s time for Ann Romney to kick some ass.
Which brings me to you. This is not a fundraising appeal. Lord knows this campaign has all the money it needs, especially since Mitt went to Vegas and promised Sheldon Adelson he’d bomb Tehran on Day One. As Mitt’s wife, I’m asking you to pledge something far more valuable:
Your silence.
By signing the pledge form below, you become an official member of Ann Romney’s Circle of Silence, an élite tier of the Romney for President Campaign. As a member of the C.O.S., you will receive priority ticketing to the Inauguration, as well as a collectible “Loose Lips Sink Mitt” ball gag. All you have to do is shut the freak up until Election Day.
That’s right, for the next forty-six days, I’m asking you to bite your tongue every time Mitt says or does something idiotic. If you think that sounds difficult, welcome to my world.
And Peggy Noonan, if you’re reading this: you want a piece of Ann Romney? Then get in the ring, girlfriend, and I’ll mess you up good.
Vote for Mitt,

Ann Romney interview on KDVR Fox 31, Denver:

...as a result of his success, [Ann Romney] said, Mitt Romney’s motives for seeking the presidency are pure.
“I want to know what motivates the person that I would be voting for, and I would say what motivates Mitt is that he cares. This is a guy that obviously doesn’t need to do this for a job,” she said.
She went on to say, “I mean, he honestly believes that he can help many Americans by having the experience that he has, and the ability to understand the economy, to bring more certainty to more Americans, especially to women.”

I find this fascinating. If she thinks it tough to take criticism from her own party, wonder what she'll think of Americans criticizing a President Romney. Can she imagine the "heat" Obama must feel?

No one told her this would be easy.
