    Media Matters, the allegedly non-partisan progressive “watchdog” group that has been caught coordinating with the Obama administration and whose founder has pledged his group’s loyalty to Hillary Clinton, sure doesn’t like Ann Romney. And why? Because she’s written too many books. Oliver Willis, a “research fellow” at the activist group, was disturbed that the former first lady of Massachusetts had written another book. He was so bothered that he felt the need to tell the world of his disgust...

    SAN DIEGO — The man who planned to be president wakes up each morning now without a plan. Mitt Romney looks out the windows of his beach house here in La Jolla...He devours news from 2,600 miles away in Washington about the "fiscal cliff" negotiations, shaking his head and wondering what if. Gone are the minute-by-minute schedules and the swarm of Secret Service agents. There's no aide to make his peanut butter and honey sandwiches. Romney hangs around the house, sometimes alone, pecking away at his iPad and emailing his CEO buddies, who've been swooping in and out of La...

    Breitbart News received the following from reader Eric Mercer of Malvern, PA. This just happened this weekend. Though the Romney campaign has not asked me to do anything, I am telling everyone I know about this because I get so angry about the things that have been said about the Romneys. On, October 20, 2012, the night of my mother’s 79th birthday, Ann Romney called, wished her a happy birthday, and thanked my mother for her support of Mitt. They chatted for a little while, as Mrs. Romney was concerned about my mother’s failing health. When their conversation was over...

    Ann Romney opened up about her struggle with Multiple Sclerosis during a surprise visit to a Cuban restaurant in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Saturday. 'I was very coordinated and athletic, and all of a sudden I'm falling and tripping and losing my balance and being so weak,' Romney, the 63-year-old wife of Republican presidential nominee, told diners. 'And I was like, "Something's wrong!"' Romney was diagnosed in 1998 with the incurable neurological disease, which attacks the central nervous system and immobilizes many of its victims. At the time, her husband was still working at Bain Capital, the venture capital firm...

    Us Magazine had a little tidbit of gossip when it discovered who made Ann Romney's and Michelle Obama's hot pink dresses worn to the recent presidential debate. In its headline Us blares that Ann Romney's dress cost "$1,690." But Michelle Obama's ensemble was priced at $3,290 despite the silence of the headline. Us gives the world the following headline: "Ann Romney Wears $1,690 Oscar de la Renta Dress to Presidential Debate." In the body of the piece Us reports this description of Ann Romney's couture. Romney, 63, selected a short-sleeved crimped cotton silk dress by Oscar de la Renta. The...

    As the race tightens and focuses on women, new attention is being paid to Mitt Romney's evolved position on abortion, but the woman who knows him best - his wife Ann - emphatically stated her own stance on the topic today, saying: "I am pro-life." Ann Romney, an influential surrogate for her husband who often takes his place on daytime talk shows with large female audiences, typically avoids any comment about policy or her own politics. But today she told the hosts of "The View" that she, like her husband, is opposed to abortion. "The good news is I'm not...

So for me I think it would just be the emotional part of it." Obviously, in context, she was not suggesting her husband couldn't handle stress...

Like disgusted parents across the country, I put my foot down and am standing up for decency: No more Nick.

    Maybe my favorite interview with Mitt and Ann Romney ever. It aired this morning but I believe it was taped a few days ago. And of course the interview wasn’t all about policy, thank goodness, but the way Romney handled the policy questions I felt was superb. And they got mad applause multiple times throughout the interview with regard to his answers on policies. At one point he was asked what he agrees with regarding Obama, and I got a little nervous there, but after talking about taking down Bin Laden and that they both appreciate family, he transitioned it...

Their obvious, but unstated, agenda is to drag Obama over the finish line to re-election. Always on pins and needles for his man Obama, NBC anchor Brian Williams told top Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett at the convention season's end that they will need the "tall order" of "nothing but positive coverage" over the next 60 days.

There was a been there/done that feel to the entire affair. Tampa Bay is used to welcoming visitors and has plenty of nice hotels to host them. You say a hurricane is coming? No worries. They laid out some sandbags, closed up for a night and started up a day later. No need to rush a convention. People don't come to Florida to be in a hurry. Charlotte, N.C.,...

As she detailed the night before, family came first. “You know that kind of love and support that you get from your family? Well, it was that kind of reaction,” she said during...

These days, franchise star Jason Biggs is aiming some "American Pie" style humor at the Republican's Vice Presidential candidate - and his wife. And while the "Pie" films typically left a pleasant after taste, Biggs' Tweet barrage feels ugly, mean-spirited and not even remotely funny.

    Viacom (NASDAQ:VIAB) has seen its viewership drop of late, meaning it can charge less money for the same commercial spot. So, the company’s solution has been simple: run more ads. At Nickelodeon, for example, viewership dropped by just under 30%, while Comedy Central has also lost a smaller number of viewers. Overall, the company increased the amount of air time rose by 9% in 2012, on top of a 7% rise the year before, The Wall Street Journal reports

But the editors of the New York Times occupy a very different universe. In a nasty piece of work this morning, editorial page editor Andrew Rosenthal painted an ugly picture of Ann Romney. Using the most violent of metaphors, Rosenthal saw a woman who, of all things, had "slipped a knife into President Obama." More after the jump.

Oddly, they also found a reason to dislike her because she owns, and rides, horses. During the Olympics, they harped about the clothes she was wearing and how much they cost. Last night,...

She told the crowd and a prime-time audience about their 43-year marriage, one of real struggles and experiences, including her battles with multiple sclerosis and breast cancer, and nothing of the storybook tale that people imagine. Ann Romney also talked about his role as a father to five sons, and grandfather to 18 grand-kids The GOP hoped her speech would help undecided and other voters (especially women) better relate to...

    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.

    Liz Trotta: When Ann Romney showed up at the Olympics equestrian competition in London's Greenwich Park last week, the media scrum around her would lead some to believe that Michael Phelps had dropped in. Mrs. Romney was there to watch her horse, Rafalca, compete in dressage, once the sport of ancient kings. The uninitiated call it 'horse ballet.' Rafalca, a German-bred mare, didn't miss a pirouette as her patron cheered and pronounced the performance constant and elegant. Some would say not unlike her mistress, Ann Romney, is not to be taken lightly. Perhaps that's why President Obama's political operatives, most...
  • Horse Hockey: The Left’s Rafalca Derangement Syndrome

    Rafalca is the name of Ann Romney’s show horse, which competed in Olympic dressage this week. Rafalca Derangement Syndrome is the name of a debilitating partisan disease, which is raging among snotty “progressives” posing as populists. On Thursday, the George Soros-funded henchmen of MoveOn promoted a new TV ad that “features a talking Rafalca Romney, who tells us Mitt would treat many Americans worse than a horse!” Interspersed with scenes of a dressage competition, the talking Rafalca mimics a faux British accent and lashes out at the Romneys’ privately earned wealth:“How do I pull off such grace and athleticism...

    Back in May, Ann Romney, wife of Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, wore a $990 Reed Krakoff silk shirt for a media appearance. The item of clothing set off a media firestorm, with the Romneys widely accused of being “out of touch” with average Americans. In particular, the Washington Post wrote that the $990 blouse “will not help her husband change those perceptions, no matter how many Laundromat photo ops are on the campaign’s itinerary.” Fast forward to last Friday, when First Lady Michelle Obama attended an Olympics reception for heads of state at Buckingham Palace, donning a J.
