NBC anchor Brian Williams reprimanded Ann Romney for saying I believe in my heart that Mitt is going to save America, suggesting it would have been incendiary if Michelle Obama had made such a promise.
As the two sat in the NBC News booth at the Republican convention, Williams told Mrs. Romney the phrasing jumped off the screen to me and maintained, without identifying the supposed source, that someone who knows you conceded that if Mrs. Obama used words like that...thered be all kinds of hubbub.
He demanded: What do you mean? Those are powerful words.

From the Wednesday, August 29 NBC Nightly News:
BRIAN WILLIAMS: Last night, as you wrapped up, you said this man will lift up America. In an interview you did with Natalie Morales for my other broadcast, Rock Center, you used different language: I believe in my heart that Mitt is going to save America. And that jumped off the screen to me. Someone who knows you conceded that if Mrs. Obama used words like that Barack was going to save America thered be all kinds of hubbub. What do you mean? Those are powerful words.
ANN ROMNEY: I think what it means, it comes right down to why we decided to get in the race. When I was deciding and Mitt was deciding, Mitt was reluctant. I said, I need to know one thing, is it too late basically to do the things, to fix the things for the direction this country is headed in? He said, no, its getting late but not too late yet. I dont know if you can see that debt clock back there, but we are fast approaching a place where if we dont make some dramatic changes, then we are going to be on the road to a Greece, a Spain, an Italy. Spain right now has 25 percent unemployment. If we continue to do what were doing, we are going to pass burdens onto our children, debt burdens that are going to be overwhelming to them, that will really cripple their lives.
So yes, its a sense of its time now to save what we now have as America. If we dont do these tough things and turn this economy around and have a job creation that will explode and bring, you know, this economic vitality back to this nation, were headed on the same path that Europe is.
and Ann Romney just bitch slapped Brian Williams back down into the NBC turd bowl with her response too
Brian Williams=socialist A-hole.
I would love to know how the heck Brian Williams is still able to speak while his lips are firmly pressed on Obama’s ass..Brian Williams doesn’t take a poop unless Obama tells him its OK
Ugh. Brian Williams is such a smarmy putz. He’s like that guy in high school who always thought he was just a little bit better than you, in spite of the fact that you had better grades, a prettier girlfriend, etc.
He’s probably still butthurt over the shredding he got at Chris Christie’s hands a couple of years ago.
What do you mean? Those are powerful words.
She means you should be in prison for life, Brian.
Those words powerful enough, traitor?
He can’t hide his bias, but I think she responded VERY well.
“If they’ll attack someone’s special needs baby, they won’t have a problem attacking someone’s wife. No suprise there.”

How many babies did Ann Romney attack with her contribution
to Planned Parenthood? America’s largest abortion provider.
At the time, was her husband pro-abortion? Depends on the
electorate. he’s pure as snow now, pro-life except for the
three exceptions for killing a baby. Mitt has said so...
JUST A FEW QUESTIONS: Are you guys minimum wage, commission or volunteers? Do you blog out of mom’s basement or actually have a cubicle at O4A (just trying to gauge what level of disruptor we rate at FR) and do you get free pizza and soda? What year Prius do you drive? Do they give you a handbook on acting like a “concerned” conservative or do you just wing it? Ever worked in a real job? What’s your degree in?
Mr. Williams, since you felt that Ann Romney’s quote jumped out at you, I would be interested in what your thoughts were about this quote from Michelle Obama in 2008 - “He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed.”
Dear Lord, give us strength.
I know that it was a smarmy BS Main Stream Media question, but she handled it very well and made him look like an immature little idiot.
And this one also, Mr. Williams - “ were a divided country, were a country that is just downright mean, we are guided by fear, were a nation of cynics, sloths, and complacents. We have become a nation of struggling folks who are barely making it every day, she said, as heads bobbed in the pews. Folks are just jammed up, and its gotten worse over my lifetime. And, doggone it, Im young. Forty-four!

Education, intellect and status sound important to you.
What do your questions for me have to do with Ann Romney and her husband’s stand against life?
“NBC anchor Brian Williams reprimanded Ann Romney for saying ‘I believe in my heart that Mitt is going to save America,’
It’s a helluva lot better than “For the FIRST time in my life, I am proud of my country.”
(That her pos demonseed husband was nominated by the demonmasters just BECAUSE he was black.)
BTW, I just happened to think of an old riddle that now has new meaning...and a new answer.
What is black and white and red all over?
Three guesses. First two don’t count.
Is the Republican platform pro-life or pro-abortion (aka “pro-choice”) do you know? Who is the Republican nominee for the position of president of the United States? What has that individual said is his stance on abortion? If you know that answers to those questions and are the “pro-life” champion you say you are, you will be voting for that person in November and against the current resident of the Executive Mansion, right? Unless you’re the disruptor that I said you were in the previous post, in which case you’re here to stir the sh*t for your master. Which is it, huh?
I mean, I was watching her doing her usual smirking, hating and lying when it suddenly hit me- her expressions, ideology, lame humor, mannerisms, body language, genitalia, hell even her face if you look close enough—it's Jon Stewart!!!
I gotta know, has anyone ever seen the two together?
Who names their little boy Rachel, anyhow?
That is one of the funniest photoshops EVAH, because it’s so true!!
...”I would love to know how the heck Brian Williams is still able to speak while his lips are firmly pressed on Obamas ass..Brian Williams doesnt take a poop unless Obama tells him its OK”...
Didn’t his program broadcast from the White House early on? I cannot stand to watch him..He is very pompous. No compassion there. I see only anger and underhanded analysis of the news.
