Brian Williams Reprimands Ann Romney for Saying Mitt Romney ‘Is Going to Save America’

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...there’d be all kinds of hubbub.”

He demanded: “What do you mean? Those are powerful words.”

(VIDEO AT LINK)

Audio: MP3 clip

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” – there’d 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, it’s getting late but not too late yet. I don’t know if you can see that debt clock back there, but we are fast approaching a place where if we don’t 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 we’re 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, it’s a sense of it’s time now to save what we now have as America. If we don’t 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, we’re headed on the same path that Europe is.

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.

She means you should be in prison for life, Brian.

Those words powerful enough, traitor?

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.

And this one also, Mr. Williams - “ we’re a divided country, we’re a country that is “just downright mean,” we are “guided by fear,” we’re 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 it’s gotten worse over my lifetime. And, doggone it, I’m 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?

Speaking of NBC—is it me or is Rachael Maddow really Jon Stewart in a dark wig?

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?

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.

Why not say? Name the Republican candidate for President, he’s your fella.

In Romney’s political career, your man has never shown a record for life. He’s is responsible for two abominations, legislating for abortion and sodomy~! What did he tell the people of Massachusetts...in his own words, shall I post his choice for abortion and one video, it’s been removed, shows Romney praising his own mother for being pro-abortion.

These days, he says he is pro-life while not backing down
on his stand, there are three exceptions to allow murdering a child in the womb.

My father never used vulgar language, yes, a great generation, take a lesson, be a gentleman.

So, just what is it that you propose that offers a better choice at this juncture? Hmmmm?

I have a choice to make, all be it no the choices I want, but still a choice to make. It shows you have made your choice Newb to champion for Obama. We get it, now go back to your own corner of the ring and get ready for the bell because we who want to see Obama retired “to save America” are going to come out swinging to knock you and your butt-boy out!

To think we cannot see past your agenda is laughable in that you only attack Romney and never offer a solution as to how we rid ourselves of this public cancer called the Obama administration. It is all the same with you dweebs. The same wording, the same paragraph structure, by, bye loser.

Excellent!

I too have noticed the number and sophistication of the Trolls this time. Some though seem to be single issue ones, like on the Akin threads.

It’s getting to be a real education in spotting them. Some are using screen names that go back a decade or more. They’re absent most of the time and then show up at election time to cause hate and chaos.

NBC’s David Gregory is Married to Fannie Mae
and Freddie Mac (wife is counsel) and NBC sees
itself as DNC, with a single role to protect
AND COVER UP Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac
and other DNC travesties.

And so, Brian Williams is on an agenda.

1. Hide any speakers of diversity at the RNC.
2. Call the RNC racist.
3. Impugn every person not for DNC/NBC.

That is not News, it is propaganda.

Laughs, I actually found a third quote of Michelle’s from before the Iowa caucuses, about how they were going to put THE WORLD to rights if he won, and was inspired to put them all together into a very polite letter to Mr. Williams, asking him to help me find his commentary concerning them, since I had been unable to find any reference to them either in print, or in any of the numerous interviews he held with Mrs. Obama.....

I’m NOT holding my breath...

But, I will let you all know if I get any response at all, lol.

What if Obama said, about himself (and his followers):"...I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal;..."

But no 'hubbub' from you Brian.

I clearly remember Brian Williams interviewing obama 3 years ago amidst a lovely set of Greek columns.

It went something like this: You said “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for” and “the sea levels will cease to rise.” Those are some mighty strange words spoken by a presidential hopeful. Some have even said they are blasphemous. What did you mean by those words?

/sarc

Never happened - never will. Instead they promoted the obama-is-the-one nonsense as all the leftist rags published endless puff pieces and pictures with “halos” surrounding his head.

Why the constant insult about being new to FR? You don’t
value new people to the forum. I thought FR was conservative, a refuge.

Pray, offer an Our Father for an “election miracle.” God can act, the nation has the choice right now between two pro-abort, pro-sodomite candidates. There is no need to discuss Obama, it’s Romney who pretends to be good. He needs God’s grace, Mormonism is not Christian.

If the “election miracle” doesn’t take place, write in a
Godly man for President. It’s your soul, you cooperate
when you vote for any legislator, a President, Governor,
Representative who is pro-abortion.

If only Romney had once shown he was for life. You are
going on his word alone at present. He fools you again, how many times has he flip flopped? He hasn’t changed. Mitt is being called today on his choice for the evil exceptions to murdering a child in the womb. He doesn’t care. Seeee....

Pray for his conversion.

If they'll attack someone's special needs baby, they won't have a problem attacking someone's wife. No suprise there.

Ann Romney's support for Planned parenthood took care of some of those "special needs" babies.

The Romney's support for health of the mother abortions, should take care of many more.
