Ann Romney: 'I doubt' we'll take as many overseas vacations as the Obamas
The HIll ^ | 6/15/12 | Justin Sink -

Posted on 06/18/2012 9:31:49 AM PDT by Nachum

Ann Romney, the wife of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, said Monday that she doubted she and her husband would vacation overseas as frequently as the Obamas if her husband were elected.

Romney was responding to a question from WJR Detroit's Frank Beckmann, who asked Romney if her family would be vacationing abroad as frequently as the Obamas.

"I doubt that," Romney replied. "Our vacations and our happiness come from being with our children and our grandchildren."

Great Question, and I loved the response by Ann Romney. Glad the reporter didn’t ask “Do you still take your dog on Vacation?”

Being white, Ann, precludes you from the entitlement to live large on the public dime.

The year Romney lost to fat Ted we found ourselves at the same resort as the Romneys. In fact our room and the Romney’s room were the only 2 on the floor. They were there with their entire family and trust me it was a lovely place but he could have stayed somewhere much more upscale. My husband and Ann Romney had a very pleasant conversation and he came away very impressed. The very next year we met Mitt at the airport, on the same island, as he was checking some of his kids in for their flight home. He was extremely friendly as he inquired about my sons’ surf bags which look like they could hold 2 bodies.

Ann will be such a refreshing change from the scowling, ungrateful, "how-come-they-are-making-such-a-fuss-over-folding-a-flag" freeloader that we currently have as First Lady.

As well, you can be sure that Ann will not be getting down on the floor on national TV and doing push-ups with some no-class morning talk show host.

Besides bringing dignity back to the office, I am hoping Mitt will be a much better and conservative leader than anyone expects. If he does, he could go down in history as a great president.

He needs dominate conservative control in the House and Senate. He needs to make hard, fiscally conservative choices. He just needs to do the right things.

So they all will go with them to Hawaii or whereever/shatever evil Romney the LIAR wants. Can't forget the cult leader's hierarchy either, his close friends, to whom he is under submission. One nation under evil with romney or barry.

Clueless voters allowed themselves to be caught in the web of deception of the LIBERAL who is a KNOWN LIAR - while conservative, proven Patriot Newt, was LIED about and voters listened to the godless cult leader.

The majority of voters lack discernment and IGNORED mitt's record, thus, succumbed to evil - such types are putty in the hands of evil. NOTHING patriotic about them - and NOTHING God-fearing about them. So they have plenty in common with romney and obama. They OWN the destruction of America with either of these godless candidates.

FWIW, it appears to this google investigator that golf is probably not Romney’s game. He might be into something else, football, baseball, parchese, stratego... but there is no flood of Romney/Golf stuff, unlike the voluminous stuff on zer0’s golf antics.

Mitt Romney is the country’s ONLY CHANCE to victory over the community devil-in-chief and I will proudly vote for him and save the country. I won’t vote 3rd party or stay home or do a write-in bc those actions will get the community devil another 4 years to finish off USA. NOPE, I ain’t gonna do that.

Or did the prospect of being the first Mormon-LDS "U.S. First Lady" blind your moral judgement ?

Ann responds: I see nothing wrong with willard 'taking out' ANY conservatives in his way to get what he deserves. Thankfully, we had the media and GOPE in our pocket - they don't want conservatives either. As far as Sarah - that's only one family. I don't think American's care about that. They care more about 'WeTheRomneys' after all, we aren't the obama's. Thankfully, most voters live in fear - that was 'OUR VICTORY' - it worked as planned!

He just needs to do the right things.

Evil is incapable of doing the right thing!! Obviously, all the evil things he has done appear good to you. IGNORE it, dismiss it to stay warm and fuzzy - liberals and the EASILY DECEIVED are like that.

Meanwhile the defenseless are being killed under his socialistic romneycare while you are expecting for him to do the right thing. He loves his socialistic romneycare for America - and homos embrace him as he made a way for them to be married and married them himself.

The KNOWN LIAR, godless romney, is evil to the core. Satan is the master liar who he serves.

EVIL would like EVERYONE to ignore TRUTH. But evil deceived enough that chose to ignore TRUTH to push his pawns, romney and obama, to the top.

Be patient, the blessings that made America great will disappear and either way, Barry or Mitt, YOU will get one nation under evil. So you won’t have to IGNORE anything - there will ONLY be ONE thing to focus on - EVIL.

Those who refused to ignore Truth, but stood firm in it and NEVER bowed to evil, God takes care of - that’s HIS OWN. The weak/fearful go the way of evil as evil designed it with their schemes to deceive.

The headline implies an arrogance akin to Odumbutt & The Mooch's, but the actual words of Ann Romney's reply are something else entirely.

HEADLINE: Ann Romney: 'I doubt' we'll take as many overseas vacations as the Obamas

The HIll ^ | 6/15/12 | Justin Sink - to a new low

Romney was responding to a question from WJR Detroit's Frank Beckmann, who asked Romney if her family would be vacationing abroad as frequently as the Obamas.

"I doubt that," Romney replied. "Our vacations and our happiness come from being with our children and our grandchildren."

This kind of writing allows readers who don't go beyond skimming the headlines to fill in their own reasons that have nothing to do with children providing the happiness.

If you think it's bad now.. I'm sure that by the last week of October most threads will be unreadable for any actual thoughtful comments.

Even on a thread about a father saving his 5 year old from a rapist, someone posted that the rapist must be a friend of Romney or some such mush.

Oh look, it's the fearful EASILY DECEIVED.

Timothy 1:7 “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Romney, satan's pawn, got his supporters through fear. Barry got his who have no problem with evil. Romney and his godless groupies vs. Barry and his godless groupies.

Evil vs. evil - gee, I wonder who will win.

The godless stand for nothing and will fall for anything. So evil uses a cult leader or a muslim - either way, victory for 'one nation under evil/godless'. Mission accomplished by the fearful who do not trust God, who is love, but bowed to fear/satan/torment.

No, the faithless weak voters bowed to the lies of Romney and Rick - the design all along. Newt didn't fail - voters did, they failed America and succumbed to the snares of evil. They ignore the conservative, a proven patriot with the Constitution running through his veins for the lies of his opponents.

maybe you should concentrate your efforts into getting our nominee elected or would you prefer 4 more years of 0bama?

First, mitt is not our nominee - who told you that? Just repeating what you were told? Saying something that ISN'T a FACT - like Romney? Is it August where you live? And I see you were brought into the web of deception through FEAR, also. That doesn't work with me, I don't submit to fear which is satan's tool. God protects HIS OWN. You, obviously, don't believe/KNOW that.

You fear satan more that you believe/trust God. Nothing good will come of that.

I don't taint myself for anyone - that is where my effort is! You live in your torment, which fear has, and I'll live in God's love. He protects HIS OWN, those who NEVER - no matter what - bows to evil. You can't serve two masters - one always wins out.

It's when the back is against the wall - what is stronger within raises up/comes out - good or evil and the spiritually weak always fails. Those who lived their beliefs all along, which are now deep rooted, will never bow to evil.

I don’t mind some and we may need to keep Romney’s feet to the conservative fire, but at this point it is Romney the Mormon or Obama the Destroyer.

I am not a fan of Mormon’s, but I don’t fear them. As for debate on Mitten’s moderate behavior, I don’t deny it, but I don’t see him running over congress and the constitution like Obama so brazenly does. If we get in conservative Representatives and Senators, Romney will work with them. Obama will not.

The motto for one nation under evil - LIE and WIN.
