From a media outlet friendly to the Romneys called Radio Iowa, here is Ann Romney’s response to fellow Republicans who’ve been criticizing her husband’s candidacy over the past few weeks.
“’Stop it. This is hard. You want to try it? Get in the ring. . . . This is hard and, you know, it’s an important thing that we’re doing right now and it’s an important election and it is time for all Americans to realize how significant this election is and how lucky we are to have someone with Mitt’s qualifications and experience and know-how to be able to have the opportunity to run this country.’”
I’m sure it’s hard to listen to your spouse be criticized so much, but really, the sting in her words, and tone in her voice are very unappealing. When she barks, “Stop it. This is hard. You want to try it. Get in the ring,” I practically shrunk back into my seat. You can hear her words for yourself via this audio link.
Elsewhere, in a Washington Post profile of D.C. Repub socialite sisters Georgette and Lyn Mosbacher, there are these gems:
Both sisters wear gold Eagle pins on their lapels, identifying them as Romney mega-donors, and a stack of VIP credentials around their necks. At the convention, they could be seen bickering outside exclusive donor powwows (“Don’t be upset,” Georgette pleaded with Lyn outside a brunch organized by billionaire Paul Singer. “It was an honest mistake.”) or giddily relaying how Ann Romney, for whom Georgette has served on the host committee for several fundraisers in New York, privately reacted to Democratic attacks on her dressage-competing mare. (“My horse has more style and more class in its hoof than they do in their whole deal,” Lyn recounts.)
