Anne Romney losing patience with ‘you people’


Questions about Mitt Romney’s tax returns remain unanswered, as does the question of whether Mitt is a made-on-Earth android or a pod creature from deep space sent by the angel Moroni. The Romney people don’t intend to budge on the tax returns, if the candidate’s wife is to be believed:

Anne Romney… on Thursday insisted that she and her husband would not be giving voters any more information about their tax returns because they had “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,” Ann Romney told ABC’s Robin Roberts. “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,” the candidate’s wife added.

Regarding the Obama campaign’s attacks on Mitt Romney’s connection to jobs that were sent overseas by his former company, Bain Capital, Ann Romney said that “it was beneath the dignity of the office of the president to do something as egregious as that.”

Pretty feeble stuff. Tithing is standard procedure for Mormons, and is one of the reasons so many people suspect Mormonism is a cult. “You people” arguably was a reference to the media, but Anne sounds like the sort of person who applies that phrase to commoners in general. And it doesn’t seem to have crossed her mind that the adjective “egregious” aptly describes those who have a hand in off-shoring jobs.

    Seriously.
    I hate the fact that “these people” will soon be occupying the White House.

    Wow, Mitt is hiding behind his wifes skirt. The Mormon church is known as being one of the stingiest churches when it comes to actual charity. They give between 0.7% and 2.6% to actual charity work. The bulk of what they spend their money on is building resorts and shopping malls, and bigger temples. Mitt has given to other charities such as the George W. Bush library and Citizens for Limited Taxation, a charity that fights to lower taxes by eliminating services. I guess the Mormon church doesn’t care about the poor either.
