Now I know I’m not supposed to talk about Ann Romney because the Republicans never, ever, in any way whatsoever speak ill of Michelle Obama, now or ever.
Flip it! I’m sick to death of dancing horses, car elevators, and God-only-knows how many houses while her husband espouses taking health care away from little children and lowering the minimum wage. I do not begrudge her wealth. I begrudge how she got that wealth and her damn arrogance about it. She got that wealth by robbing the middle class of their jobs.
And, now she’s done it. You people? Did Ann Romney just refer to the rest of America, including damn near everybody in the GOP, as “you people?”
Oh, have pity on us, Ann, we of the not-rich. The peons. The workers. The people who clean your house and handmake your cars and your clothes.
Ann Romney dismissed concerns about her husband’s tax returns Thursday, contending that the two of them have “given all you people need to know.”
“You know, you should really look at where Mitt has led his life, and where he’s been financially,” the potential first lady said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “He’s a very generous person. We give 10 percent of our income to our church every year. Do you think that is the kind of person who is trying to hide things, or do things? No. He is so good about it. Then, when he was governor of Massachusetts, didn’t take a salary for four years.”
“We’ve given all you people need to know and understand about our financial situation and how we live our life,” she added later.
Good Lord, Ann, haven’t you ever heard of noblesse oblige? Honey, that is not “let them eat cake.” That is “let them eat poop and die.”
Hell, most of us refer to “you people” as the United Damn States of America.
So, we’re supposed to take Ann, of the $77,000 tax deduction for her pet horse, at her word that Mitt is a great guy. Well, crap, Darlin’, you can find several troupes of chorus girls in Las Vegas who say the same thing about their Mafia Sugar Daddies.
Here’s my theories about the tax returns. One, they show he’s not a millionaire, but a billionaire. Or, they show he paid no taxes at all for several years. Could be that he gave more money to the Mormon Church than he did in taxes. Or maybe he’s a tax cheat and damn crook.
Ann, listen up, woman. You people have the right to know if Mitt puts his money where his mouth is. You can’t lead America if all your money is in Switzerland.
I may be a mean woman and a brazen hussy, but at least I’m smart enough not to call folks who vote “you people.”
On the other hand, all you people need to vote for Obama ‘12.
