I’m a horsewoman myself, as you can probably guess from my username. I don’t begrudge either of the young ladies their success—they’re actually very good and work extremely hard. It’s not easier for them because they’re rich, since show jumping is a sport in which all of the competitors are either rich, or are sponsored by very rich people or nations or corporations. It hurts just as badly to hit the ground when you’re rich as when you’re poor. Rich, poor, or in between, you sweat just as much when you’re riding, and you get just as exhausted, and have to control your mind, body, and emotions just as much.
My point, however, is that the press carries fawning articles about Misses Bloomberg and Springsteen, while they condemn Mrs. Romney for pursuing a sport she got into as a form of therapy, and for contributing millions of dollars to the US effort to win a medal in dressage.
The dems throw anything, and if it doesn't stick, they shrug it off, and throw something else. If it sticks, they expand on it.
Then there were even some conservatives that got on that bandwagon and poo pooed Mrs Romney for exhibiting richness. lol
RESOLVED: The press are scum.
Therefore, she must be vilified because she's a freak. Right now in article after article the left works to destroy Ann Romney, just like it does to Sarah Palin. Any attempt to live outside the Left’s declared standards of womanhood must be destroyed.
The Left is a living entity that thrives on envy. It's why losers hate merit and love government - they're jealous of anyone who is their better. Money doesn't change the core person and every liberal knows they serve the wrong master. It's easier to destroy than to create, to acquiesce than to improve, to envy rather than emulate. They're haters of the first degree, mentally ill and masters at projection.
Their Master is evil and they follow his footsteps with glee.
“It hurts just as badly to hit the ground when youre rich as when youre poor.”
Yup. I am not rich but I have been over the jumps with the horse, over the jumps seperated from the horse as I went over the jump, over the jump without the horse, and through the jump without the horse (ouch). I have also been thrown over a horse by a professional athlete who had never given anyone a leg up before. Hit the concrete and started to laugh after I checked all my organs to make sure they were still in the right spots.
I miss it. I love horses. And they love me right back. Sigh...
