Joan Walsh Accuses Ann Romney Of Throwing 'Tantrum' Over Tax Returns

When it comes to family members of Republican presidential candidates, looks like the MSM has decided they're fair game for attacks. Yesterday we noted how ABC's Bianna Golodryga claimed that Paul Ryan's mother was campaigning in a "very calculated" manner.

Today we offer Joan Walsh into evidence. Appearing on the weekend edition of MSNBC's "Hardball," the Salon editor accused Ann Romney of throwing a "tantrum" over her husband's decision to release no more than two years of tax returns.

View the video here.

Joan Walsh accuses Ann Romney of throwing a “tantrum.” What do you think would happen if a Republican accused Michelle Obama of throwing a tantrum? Ping to Today show list.

They don’t have a record to run on so they try to divert the attention to issues that are irrelevant.

Typical RAT playbook.

tantrum?

Since the 1960s it's been a 24/7 hissy fit from the Left.

These aged 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radicals (psycho spoiled brats actually) and their bratty ideological issue took over the traditional Democratic Party in the 1970s and became the Demobrat Party.

A Demobrat accuses someone else of a tantrum? When have they ever had an original thought feeeeeeeeeeeeeling?

I think Ms Walsh should be more concerned about whether or not this is the year she finally takes the Horse face of the year Crown away from 10 year running Champion Sarah Jessica Parker

Those tax returns are as much Ann Romney’s as they are Mitt’s. I guess liberals don’t believe women should have a voice in what information is disclosed about them. Did John Kerry’s wife ever release her tax records in 2004?

Too funny. This campaign has inspired more Liberal Projection™ than any other in recent memory. The left has whole handfuls of nothing and they prove it every time they open their yaps.

Video clip includes Anna Romneys “tantrum”. LOL, she was poised and simply said unequivocally, “no more tax releases”. The left simply cannot understand a polite and firm assertion of a limit.
Ann looked like a mother telling a child they cannot have ice cream for dinner and that her answer was not up for negotiation.

This was great.

Does she looked worried to y’all?

Romney/Ryan on NOV. 6th time to clean the White House again.
