Skip to comments.On Meet The Press, Ann Romney Said That She Can Empathize With People. But Can Mitt?

Before the barrage of ad homs begins, ask yourself this question: why did the Romneys let themselves get sucked into this kind of talk on Meet the Press (with David Brooks) on Sunday in the first place?
Why is she saying that they (the Romneys) know what it is like to struggle, and then proffer her own personal health struggles as evidence that they know what it is like to struggle?
Why are they letting themselves get sucked into this....
.... because the inevitable question surfaces and arises: voters will feel empathy towards Ann Romney, but they will ask how Mitt Romney has struggled (financially or whatever) and how he can therefore empathize with people. And they will say that Mitt is on the ticket, not her.
And finally... it seems to echo John Edwards from 2007-8.
Right! What you bring out is one of Gov. Romney's best traits! The educated & landed gentry who voted for the Declaration of Independence & later devised our Constitutional Federal Union, would never have even discussed their acts of charity with the general public. That is not how any gentleman--then or now--behaves.
It is to Romney's credit that he is uncomfortable with this sort of thing.
It would depend on the question. Do you know what that was?
So you don’t even pretend to deal in facts anymore, post 19 is a straight forward collection of the facts on Mitt Romney, your claims for him are bogus, and it appears that you know that.
Check out my posts 10 and 16, which provide the questions from Gregory. This is from the MTP official transcript of the interview.
See post 19, Bishop Romney isn’t ‘charitable’ he is a leader within a cult, and he transfers 10s of millions of dollars to them to fund their anti-Christian activities.
Not interested in any politicians empathy or sympathy. Just want him to do the right thing.
My concern/fear/belief...is that Willard doesn’t know what the right thing is. Willard has changed his views so much and w/ so many items...I don’t think Willard even knows what he believes anymore.
So freaking sad.
