Skip to comments.Mitt Romney: Wife Ann drives ‘a couple of Cadillacs’
Posted on 03/09/2012 11:35:12 AM PST by VU4G10
Addressing the Detroit Economic Club Friday afternoon, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney (R) reprised his familiar line that the trees are the right height and the streets are just right in his home state.
But he also made another statement that could draw him some unwanted attention: he told the crowd that his wife, Ann Romney, drives a couple of Cadillacs.
(Excerpt) Read more at washingtonpost.com ...
If he was a democrat senator he would have said “She drives a Prius, a Volt a BMW and a Lexus.”
This guy is nothing but pure fake and when not that pure corn pone.
Well this is the same guy who recently bought a big multi million dollar house at the beach in California and is planning to tear it down to build an even bigger and more expensive house on the same property...
oh yes dont we all do that ...
why I did that just last week...
its SOOOOO American...
I don’t care about the Cadillacs.
What the hell does “the trees are the right height” mean? Doesn’t even make sense. Its obviously intentional ... he keeps repeating it.
Don’t most families have two cars these days? If people with money aren’t going to buy those “Cadillacs” then there wouldn’t be any reason to make them now, would there?
why would we want anyone to be a pretend pauper?
If can afford it, good for him. It certainly beats the way obama scammed his way to riches.
“...drives a couple of Cadillacs...”
I just want to know how Ann Romney manages to drive two cars at once...
——What the hell does the trees are the right height mean? Doesnt even make sense. Its obviously intentional ... he keeps repeating it.——
It has to do with the strawberries, but someone keeps taking them.
At the same time?
It’s his version of the “Chewbacca Defense.”
” I’m talkin’ about Chewbacca! Does that make sense? Ladies and gentlemen, I am not making any sense! None of this makes sense! And so you have to remember, when you’re in that jury room deliberatin’ and conjugatin’ the Emancipation Proclamation, does it make sense? No! Ladies and gentlemen of this supposed jury, it does not make sense! If Chewbacca lives on Endor, you must vote for Mitt!”
We just don't understand how the Super RICH live and they think it is normal for all of us. Don't everybody have .......(whatever)? Peasants!, my Oh my, how do they live?/s
CAVEAT: this is not class envy on my part. I truly think this is they way they think.
I think you are missing the point. By saying his wife drives a couple of Cadillacs rather than Mercedes or BMWs (or Rolls or Maybach) he thinks he IS being a pretend pauper.
you seriously think people aren’t on to the Obama class warfare???
Why repost an old article that has already been hashed out here?
The low class Romney is jealous of me ???
Sure thats possible...
For one he doesnt live in Tennessee...
and two he covets my Conservative creds...
I am NOT a Romney supporter at all but I refuse to engage in this nonsense of kicking him because he can afford more than me. Maybe she has a Cadillac sedan and SUV, so? He wants to buy property and tear down the house and build a new one, have at it...him building a new house is providing private sector jobs! No matter what the rich spend money and that is a GOOD thing!!
Did anyone hear Romney trying out his “country boy” persona on the news this a.m.? Heard him saying during his trip to MS, he was “learning how to say ‘y’all.’”
Next, he’ll be plucking a banjo.
Good Lord, this guy is truly sans a clue.
Isn’t this quote from last week???? If not, then he is a really stupid man to repeat this mistake.
Better than the Obama’s using Airforce One like it was their private taxi. Then there is Nancy take advantage of the taxpayer Pelosi flying around with her stocked Jumbo Jet.
Imagine, saying you own Cadillacs when you’re in Detroit. Where they’re made. Unlike John Kerry, who denied owning Cadillac SUV’s.
He just dropped her social standing among the elite by fifty points!
Cadillacs are a favorite of Blacks. Governor Patrick has one. Chuck Berry sang about them. It's a big enuf market to keep on making 'em.
Many of our neighbors have a home here in MA. and in Florida. They also have more than one car. Most have 2 here and at least one down south. So what?
And I drive a Lexus.
Oh big deal and good for her....I wish I drove a couple of Caddy’s.... He earned them.......
The Presidential Limos are currently modified Caddies. Used to be Lincolns years ago.
Im not sure what you’re asking me. I have no problem with it. I have a problem with someone who just doesn’t like Romney because he is a Mormon spreading class envy as a way to take him down.
I had to go to the local Chevrolet/Cadillac dealer a month ago to get a $9.68 part for my 1976 Chevy 1 ton Dually truck.
They had a brand new 2012 Cadillac on the showroom floor. I couldn’t resist looking at the window sticker.
My first thought was that that was 3 times the cost of my first house in 1966.
My second thought was that could have ‘rounded ‘ it off to just $75,000 even!!!!
What’s worse-—I cannot even tow my 4 horse trailer with that $75,000 vehicle!!!!!!
