Ann Romney's back, gushing again over her husband's newly revealed competence. Now that the American people have had a chance to see an "unfiltered" Mitt, everything's changed, apparently. Like unfiltered cigarettes, the debate format allowed the viewers to inhale Mitt's full toxicity. It's no wonder so many pundits were breathless after the debate.
Citing "a barrage" of negative ads and unfair treatment from the media, Ann Romney told WTOP on Monday she attributes her husband's uptick in the polls to Romney's first "unfiltered" performance at the first presidential debate.
"Finally, finally the American people got to see a completely unfiltered view of my husband," she told WTOP's Mark Lewis and Debbie Feinstein. "You saw he was competent, that he was intelligent, that he had a vision for our future, that he understands and was caring of those suffering from the economy."
Frankly, I don't know whether viewers were able to sort out anything coherent from the turbo-tossed word salad of Mitt's Gish Gallop last week. I watched the entire debate, and all he seemed to "care" about was out-talking that guy who used to do the Fedex ads. Caring for the American people? Not so much.
"For me, it was a thrill for the American people to tune in and not have any interpretation, listen with their ears and see with their eyes who this guy really is," says Ann Romney, who spoke to WTOP from a campaign volunteer center in Chester, Va.
Too bad the American people are so stupid, so inept, so in need of Ann's constant corrections, admonitions, and advice. How is it possible that these same witless voters, with whom Ann has shown no patience thusfar, are suddenly masters of discernment, afficionados of nuance? One wonders.
In further news from the ice queen:
If the Romneys take the White House this November, the potential first lady says she would focus on breast cancer and multiple sclerosis awareness. She has suffered from both of these conditions herself.
Working with at-risk children would also be a high priority, she says. Romney would stress "how important it is that children know they are precious and loved, especially that God loves them."
Wait, WHAT? "...especially that God love them?" I guess that's about all they can expect in Romney's dystopian world, where the poor, the sick, the uninsured, the unemployed, and the homeless fall noiselessly through the gaping holes in the saftey net, as Mitt's rich friends light another cigar with a $10,000 bill. Maybe Ann can explain to these kids why her husband fired their dad and mom, left the homeless, and killed off Big Bird, just because he could.
