Ann Romney “loves” that some women don’t have the choice to stay home with their kids

“Romney” is Wealthese for “foot in mouth”

Holy crap. I thought Mitt Romney was the failmouth of the Romney family but it appears that he married the right woman. Ann Romney is as completely out of touch and unaware as her husband.

Giving the keynote at the Connecticut Republican Party’s Prescott Bush Awards Dinner in Stamford, she said this (and I still cannot believe it):

I love the fact that there are women out there who don’t have a choice and they must go to work and they still have to raise the kids. Thank goodness that we value those people too. And sometimes life isn’t easy for any of us.

I’m sorry. Did you just say that you “love the fact that there are women out there who don’t have the choice” to stay home with their kids like you do? Why the [bleep] would you love that? No, seriously, why is that something that you love?

These two are unbelievable…

    I can see what she meant to say, but jesus…talk about a major screwup.

    Someone better either teach her to choose her words more carefully or shut her the hell up.

    That’s one thing I can say about Obama’s wife. Michelle is a serious class act. She pissed me off to quite a bit with some of her comments on the campaign trail, but she’s been pretty damn exemplary as First Lady. Pure Jackie Kennedy-esque class.

      I suggest Mitt teach her how to speak in public. Yeah, that’s the ticket.
      Oh. Wait. He apparently already has.

    I tend to believe that her statements do represent her thoughts. She speaks in such a condescending manner “Thank goodness that we value those people too.”  As if she appoints value and non-value to her fellow citizens… seemingly based upon income.
