Skip to comments.Cavuto: Ann Romney hasn't had it easy
Posted on 04/13/2012 3:50:39 PM PDT by afraidfortherepublic
So Ann Romney doesn't have any real life experiences?
Doesn't know a thing about difficulty?
that her gilded life has shielded her from the day-to-day concerns of average folks?
Now, you would think after Hilary Rosen spouted that nonsense, we would be done debating this nonsense.
But you'd be wrong.
Here to pick up the shovel and happily dig an even deeper clueless pit no less than the president of NOW, the National Organization of Women...Terry O'Neill.
happily chiming in that neither Ann Romney nor her husband, for that matter, have the, and I quote here, "Kind of life experience and if not, the imagination, to really understand what most American families are going through right now."
What the hell does that mean?
"Life experience" and "imagination"?
I suspect either would be news to Ann Romney.
...whose charmed life raising six boys, no less, apparently couldn't prevent her from getting cancer.
And only a few years later, multiple sclerosis.
The odds of getting both in one lifetime, are about as daunting and rarified as living in that supposedly cushy one percent times a thousand!
I should know.
Because full disclosure here I too have had cancer. And I too have MS.
Now, Im not saying this not to get your sympathy although itll be coming in handy If might rub you the wrong way or if I can get out of work at home.
But to remind these mindless, heartless critics Lets get back to Ann, stick to the issues, and stick all this other nonsense somewhere else.
And for God's sake, show a little empathy.
I've known much poorer folks who'd stop everything for a hangnail.

Who gives a rats @ss about Ann Romney. She isn’t running for president and whether she works or doesn’t is inconsequential. We are in a ridiculous news cycle.
I thought since we women are liberated, that means we could, among other things, choose our own life paths. I guess women are only “liberated” if they have a career and a staff to raise their children.
These feminists are a bunch of ignorant jerks. Mercifully they don’t represent all women
Kind of how I feel about it too--- "Sticks and stones" and all that.
That being said, I'll still never vote for her spineless liberal husband.
I am not a fan of Mitt Romney, and you’re correct that we’re in a ridiculous news cycle. That said, it’s painfully obvious that you didn’t read the article....
If every conservative American voter thinks the way you do (and acts on it) — then the whole world will be stuck with Obama for another 4 years (at least!). I'm beginning to wonder whether Americans, in general, can be trusted with the franchise in American national elections.
Yeah, you can tell me to go to 83!!, and point out the obvious fact that a foreigner has no say in your elections. We (foreigners) do, however, have to suffer the consequences. You have the franchise. For everyone’s sake, use it wisely!
We’re still in the primaries.
Obama hates women and Obama hates hispanics. Looks pretty clear to me.
You might not, however she single handedly slapped down the entire democratic party this week.
30 states down, 20 to go. Sounds like our Victorian friend gets too much of his news from the MSM.
If every conservative voter voted 4 lib romney...socialist romney...proabort mitt...lib judge appointing mitt...global warming mitt...conservatism would evaporate...we would not need a gop...why would u xpect conservatives to both sear their consciences...and cross the liberal waterloo...never able to citique socialistic healthcare or abortion minded pols ever again?
What “most American families are going through right now” is not related to MS and cancer. Cavuto’s presenting a strawman argument. Trump understands the mindset of people who actually have to work for a living. Mitt Romney doesn’t, not even close, not a chance. His wife tries a little harder but most likely doesn’t either. I don’t care how much money someone has, but show me some evidence that you’ve made an effort to understand and get to know people from different walks of life if you’re going to try to represent 300 million people.
If that would get us a decent candidate I’d be all for it. But I’m not convinced the Republican establishment could be trusted to give us a decent candidate even in a brokered convention. I trust them about as far as I can throw the Eiffel Tower.
As I’ve said elsewhere, I’d vote for worms from my trashcan if that’s what it took to get rid of Obama. No way I will ever vote for him. And I will encourage others to effectively vote against him as well, even if we have to plug our nose and drink a bottle of whiskey before we can bring ourselves to do it.
Mitt Romney has an MBA and did and does work for a living. He grew up in the heartland of America.
Much moreso than the community organizer, who knows nothing and is stunningly ignorant about what America is and how it works.
I just have to believe that a raised-here American would do better than Obama - with a caveat that they are not steeped in Marxism.
I do think Mr. Romney is not a Marxist, petulant, ignorant of our history, or that he will seek to drown us in debt. I wish he were someone else, but I have grown sick and tired of every Democrat and I will so happily see them lose in a landslide, even to Mickey Mouse.
“Who gives a rats @ss about Ann Romney.”
I care for Ann Romney and Neil Cavuto because I have MS as well.
There is no cure; you just try to manage it. Even management is hard.
But, they didn’t make up the “hasn’t had a job” narrative. That Hilary R. is responsible for this stupid stuff when US has much more on the platter.
Obama should have reeled Hilary in, but, who knows. It might have been his idea all along.
Well, agreed, but often elections turn on small and inconsequential things because these are the things people react to. Dukakis in the tank, Dean’s scream, Kerry on his jet skis. A single tear, a single word selection, looking at your watch during a debate, (George HW Bush), bad make-up (Nixon debate) and so on. The important issues and facts are the words, but these sorts of things are the tune.
I heard Niel’s Common Sense today. I have some stuff wrong but so far, not as much as Niel or Ann. Good on them and I wish everyone the best health possible.
I don't care what "education" someone does or doesn't have. I'm not a liberal. The kind of "work" he did for a living at Bain Capital was corrupt and destructive and certainly does NOT help him relate to average people. Most of us have no idea what it's like to push millions of dollars around between a bunch of shell corporations and drive companies into bankruptcy while keeping all the profits.
Is relating to average people a requirement to be President? Have you ever been to Mount Vernon? Or Monticello? Or Montpelier? Or are you more of a Jacksonian Democrat?
I actually kind of admire ruthless capitalists. But maybe it’s not a popular thing now, except among fans of Ayn Rand or something. And of course she’s not my ultimate heroine, as I’m a Christian and I can’t agree with her entirely.
And no, I didn’t vote for Romney here in Virginia. But somehow, the other candidates epically failed to make it onto the ballot.
So I’m going to suck it up and work very hard on our Senate race. Which also stinks, because now we have two conservatives running against George Allen.
Only if your a liberal and vote democrat are you a liberated woman. Choice? only the "democrat" one is allowed. You must choose abortion instead of adoption, you must choose a career, not be a full time Mom. If your a stay at home Mom, "you haven't worked a day in your life".
If your daughter gets pregnant, you do not have a choice to know. The "liberated" women have decided for you that someone in your house caused it therefore your 12, 13,17 year old can be taken to a PP clinic and have major surgery, you have no choice. Heath Insurance, all policies must include women's health needs. Don't need pregnancy coverage, or contraceptive coverage, too bad others do, you have no choice.
