When Anne said she didn’t see herself as wealthy AFTER Romney’s ‘wealth’ was finally revealed..she went on and on about the other facets of life she sees as wealth...it was apparent the woman has some issues about reality.
I am not sure what statements Anne made that you are referring to, but your summary is contradictory. Either she was emphasizing that she doesn’t see wealth in terms of money or she said that they weren’t wealthy, which is it?
Anne’s comments in context:
“The one thing this disease [multiple sclerosis] has been for me has been a wonderful teacher. And with that comes an ability for compassion for others that are suffering and for me, I just want to make my family bigger..... Those that are suffering from MS or from cancer or from any disease, I feel like I just want to throw my arms open and just say: welcome to my family and welcome to the place where I’ve been....
And - and, so, you know, we can be poor in spirit and I don’t - I dont look - I don’t even consider myself wealthy, which is an interesting thing. It can be here today and gone tomorrow.
And how I measure - how I measure riches is by the friends I have and the loved ones that I have and the people that I care about in my life. And thats where my values are and thats - those are my riches.”
You can make your own assessment of why she felt compelled to scramble thru the idea she doesn’t consider herself wealthy....but there is no way that Romneys wealth will be gone tomorrow and she knows that.
Further her MS would be considered a Pre-existing condition if she had to seek Health Insurance...ponder that one for the average American who had to stop work because of their illness and lost their medical coverage for that. She lives a sheltered life far distant from most...and to make it appear otherwise is simply foolish.
The whole idea is Romneys need to stop talking about their wealth....because in ‘reality’ they cannot relate to the average American...and that’s just how it is....but to say she doesn’t feel wealthy then one must ask how much more til she does?
