    If it's Uncertain, then I am not so sure about that story either. LOL.

    The sad truth is that anyone who can actually afford to run for president is probably someone who has never had to "work for a living". The last what? 7 or 8 presidents we've had have been millionaires. Can anyone remember the last POTUS who wasn't super rich or came from a rich family?

    Abe Lincoln perhaps?
    Perhaps they are millionaires because, despite humble beginnings, they've led lives of visible accomplishment and wealth would therefore be a natural consequence. Barrack Obama seems the only exception.

    I agree. My point is they are all rich, to call Romney out for it is disingenuous
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    Like you, I could give a poof about Romney's wealth. At least he knows how to make money, which is a plus, since the country is so deep in debt, we've lost our AAA credit rating.

    Half of congress are multi-millionaires. This hasn't proved to be a reason to not vote for them, since they get re-elected.


    Folks just want to set Romney out as "the rich guy", so's as they won't have to talk about the point of the thread which is the Demo attack on Ms. Romney.

    It's not that Romney is the rich guy. He's the rich guy who doesn't get it. He's just saying what he needs to say to win, and if he wins, you won't notice much difference between him and Obama.

    But they're willing to give exception to someone's wife because he's rich. . . it's ok - then - not be gainfully employed on your own if your husband's well off (don't just apply that to Ann - I'm sure it applies ot all wives or husbands of well-off spouses who are given a 'get out of this standard we expect everyone ot live up to and judge everyone who's poor when they don't' card)

    You still just don't seem to get it. Working outside the home, for a paycheck, is not the only way to be “gainfully employed”. Your suggestion that it is is a serious insult to all the stay-at-home housewives who, while not earning a formal paycheck, work as hard, and contribute as much to society, as their husbands who meet your narrow definition of “gainfully-employed”.

    Who would have guessed that you were such a misogynist?
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    LOL - look at you trying to make sense out of my views on this when I can't make up my own mind in this thread concerning what I really feel.

    Keep going though - maybe you can help me out

    Being a stay at home mom has it's ups and downs - it's good and bad (I am one - so this is referring to me, here) - and I haven't been able to place it in my life as to whether it's been a good or a bad thing for me. It's definitely good for the kids - but beyond that I don't know. . . I defined myself - as most Americans do - by my career. Once I became a Stay at Home Mom I felt like I lost myself - and not only did I lose myself but my identity as an individual became wrapped up in my husband's military career - no 'me' - and I can't stand it. When I graduate I'll be thrilled to be 'myself' again.

    anyway - sometime during the ongoings of this thread I read up on Ann and found her to be quite busy in her life - I imagine, with all the many causes and organizations she's been involved with - she's been busy full-time.

    The average American doesn't worry about the caterers bringing enough champagne flutes for the toast.

    The average American doesn't worry about their recovery time after a little nip and tuck work.

    The average American doesn't worry about their stylist and dress designer not seeing eye-to-eye. Or do the architect and landscaper get along?

    I've spent time with people worth $100 million +. They don't know how to drive a car or even where to find meat in their neighborhood supermarket. That's not saying their 'bad' people. If they came from nothing, the have some respect for the working class. But some wives forget where they came from and act like they were born in the Country Club (that their husband pays for).

    Romney brought his wife in to the conversation, claiming she can relate with the struggles of the average American. BS.

    The comment in context is not unfair. Maybe her tone was a little off, but the notion is fair. The super-wealthy wives live in a different world that working class mothers.
    The average American wants to know what the President will do for his pocketbook, he doesnt give a **** about the President's. Lots of assumptions in your post.
