Ann Romney , wife of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, speaks at her first solo campaign rally ‘Women for Mitt’ in Findlay, OH on Sept 5, 2012.
Yesterday, FOX News’ Neil Cavuto was lucky enough to have Ann Romney on his show ‘Your World. If you’re like me, any time I get to see Ann the sun shines a little brighter.
Cavuto asked Ann about the election, women’s vote, Governor Romney coming under attack for commenting on unrest in the Middle East, upcoming debates, her knock-out convention speech, and more:
“This is going to be an economic election… The people that have been hurt the most by this economy have been women. They have higher unemployment rates than men. There are more women going into poverty – since the last 40 years.” – Ann Romney
Ann reassured listeners that Governor Romney “gets it”. He will focus on restoring jobs and better paying jobs for women and Americans, and he’ll tackle America’s deficit woes so the unthinkable won’t happen – forcing America’s children and grandchildren to pay for our current outrageous, wasteful excesses.
If you missed Ann’s wonderful, engaging speech on September 5th at the ‘Women for Mitt’ rally in Findlay, Ohio have a listen here.
FINDLAY — Ann Romney fired back Wednesday at critics who have accused husband Mitt Romney of being out of touch with average Americans, saying her own bout with multiple sclerosis taught the family what it means to suffer and lose hope.
“When people say that we’ve led a charmed life and we don’t relate to people that are having trouble, I want to remind you that I’ve been in a very dark place, and I know what it is like to have no hope,” Mrs. Romney said at a rally for women supporting her husband, the Republican presidential candidate, at the University of Findlay in Ohio. “So believe me when I tell you these words: We are there for you because we know what it feels like.”
She described her struggle with the disease, which coincided with her family’s move to Utah so her husband could oversee preparations for the 2002 Winter Olympics there. She said she lost the use of her right side and had problems getting out of bed, but said that despite initial second thoughts the move turned out well.
“Sometimes when you take a risk like that and you just go and do what you know is the right thing to do, sometimes God looks over you,” she said.
Mrs. Romney has been in remission for years.
I’m telling you, the woman has a gift. Ann speaks with such friendly ease one doesn’t want her to stop.
Ann, keep up the great work and keep telling it like it is!
