Ann Romney Has No Idea What Is In Those Tax Returns But Assures You People That They Are Legal

by Kris E. Benson

Ann Romney, wife of Mitt Romney (R-Money)Oh isn’t this NICE. Ann Romney took time away from her busy schedule of hanging out with Welsh ponies (srsly) to discuss politics with NBC news. And you will never guess what NBC learned, you guys. Ann Romney is not just the owner of a dancing horse! No sirree, she is the granddaughter of a coal miner! And a first generation American! And she has no idea what’s in her husband’s tax returns but she’s 100% confident that they’re legal! Don’t you people feel comforted?

About two hundred miles away from the Greenwich, England, arena where her purebred horse Rafalca competed in the London Olympics, Ann Romney stroked the nose of Magic, a Welsh pony.

“You’re so pretty, Magic,” said Mrs. Romney…

The criticism that plagued the Romneys during the 2008 campaign has continued, particularly in regards to their reported $250 million fortune and the issue of their tax returns.

When pressed by [NBC’s Natalie] Morales, Mrs. Romney stood her ground. “We have been very transparent to what’s legally required of us,” she said. “There’s going to be no more tax releases given.”

Mrs. Romney said if they release any more information, “it will only give them more ammunition.”

In regards to their finances,  she said “there’s nothing we’re hiding.”

“It’s been managed by a blind trust since before Mitt was governor, you know, 2002 forward,” she told Morales.  “And so, you know, I’ll be curious to see what’s in there too.”

Oh we’re still allowed to talk about the fact that Mitt was governor? It hasn’t been added to the list along with “chains” and “dad” and “Medicare”? Because don’t forget, it’s “Mitt’s time” and Ann Romney is done letting “you people” interfere with that.

Ann Romney is just like most of us, curious to see how much money we have in our checking accounts. Of course, for us, it's to see if we can buy groceries today or if we have to wait until Friday, and for her, it's just to find out how much the last pony escalator cost.

Tommy1733 August 16, 2012 at 10:04 am

"Pony Escalator" – BAND NAME!!!

James Michael Curley August 16, 2012 at 10:14 am

Playing two sets every night at the Stone Romney in Asbury Park.

I thought she was a porn starlet.

Typodong3 August 16, 2012 at 12:01 pm

The last time there was a pony escalator in my house, it was the 70s and my sister was playing with her plastic pony collection on the stairs. But we can dream big…

sbj1964 August 16, 2012 at 9:58 am

Mitts tax returns are nothing more than a bullshit myth.Kept on file by the Mormon church right beside the writings of Joseph Smith.

GunToting[Redacted] August 16, 2012 at 11:23 am

Do you have to stick your head in a hat to read the returns?

Typodong3 August 16, 2012 at 12:02 pm

No but they are written on golden tablets. Very expensive accountant, and its a bitch to redact them.

justkillmenow August 16, 2012 at 9:59 am

Romney may have the purebred horse, but doesn't Barry still have the Unicorn?

Isyaignert August 16, 2012 at 11:53 am

You meant the Unicorn that sh!ts rainbows?

Baconzgood August 16, 2012 at 9:59 am

"We have been very transparent to what’s legally required of us,…There’s going to be no more tax releases given…it will only give them more ammunition…there’s nothing we’re hiding.”

She's more evasive than Mitt's 1040.

ph7 August 16, 2012 at 10:12 am

In summary:

1. We have been very transparent
2. there’s nothing we’re hiding
3. No, you can't see them.

WhatTheHolyHeck August 16, 2012 at 10:24 am

2a. If you saw what was in there that we're not hiding, you'd have even more ammunition against us but there's totally nothing in there that would interest you honest.

fuflans August 16, 2012 at 10:27 am

4. trust us

Isyaignert August 16, 2012 at 11:54 am

Isn't "trust us" Yiddish for fuk you?

Butch_Wagstaff August 16, 2012 at 6:34 pm

It's Polite Mormon for "fuck you".

sullivanst August 16, 2012 at 10:26 am

"There's nothing we're hiding except for anything that might be damaging to us."

Yeah, there's no legal requirement to release any tax returns. There's not much legal requirement for any kind of transparency. Ann sure knows horseshit.

chicken_thief August 16, 2012 at 11:44 am

And says all this while stroking the "nose" of Magic. Lifetime Channel for Women doesn't write shit that corny.

Typodong3 August 16, 2012 at 12:03 pm

I just wanna know how you can give tax releases? Isnt that a bit redundant?

Callyson August 16, 2012 at 12:18 pm

Mrs. Romney said if they release any more information, “it will only give them more ammunition.”

FFS, she is coming out and admitting that the tax returns contain evidence. If we had a real news media in this country, they would never let that slide…

Jukesgrrl August 16, 2012 at 5:42 pm

Us vs. You People, Part II.

not that Dewey August 16, 2012 at 9:59 am

“You’re so pretty, Magic” is the new "All of them, Katie".

RadioBowels August 16, 2012 at 10:19 am

Not sure why they didn't call it "Magic Underwear."

not that Dewey August 16, 2012 at 10:38 am

NBC: How will you do it, might I inquire to ask??
Romney: I will do it with my hair and magic undies!
NBC: Your hair and magic undies?
Romney: Hair and magic undies!
NBC: Magic undies?
Romney: Magic undies!
NBC: Magic undies.
Romney: Yes, magic undies, and I'll give you a sample

OneYieldRegular August 16, 2012 at 10:33 am

Given how completely out of touch the Romneys seem to be, it also seems to sum up their entire life philosophy.

ph7 August 16, 2012 at 9:59 am

Ann Romney stroked the tip of Magic, her pet name for Mitt's penis.

“You’re so pretty, Magic,” said Mrs. Romney…

thatsitfortheother1 August 16, 2012 at 10:09 am

Then she showed him what a real one looked like.

oh! ewwwwwwwwwwwww….

Caelan Aegana August 16, 2012 at 5:01 pm

Anne married Mittens when she was 15, but I somehow get the impression here that's she's regressed back to around age 12. Having a husband named after a kitty-kat probably didn't help.

Butch_Wagstaff August 16, 2012 at 6:37 pm

"Mittens, who's a pretty killy! You are! Yes, you are!"

eggsacklywright August 16, 2012 at 9:59 am

She acts like the reporter is one of "the help". You people indeed. What an arrogant snot.

Katydid August 16, 2012 at 10:24 am

I kinda took the "you people" to mean the American public. She thinks we're all the help, and that it's "Mitt's time," and that only he can save the country…talk about Stockholm Syndrome.

eggsacklywright August 16, 2012 at 11:22 am

Possible, but I took it as meaning the media. Repubs love to whine when questioned.

Butch_Wagstaff August 16, 2012 at 6:41 pm

Yeah, I always thought she probably meant the media. If so, it a very poor choice of words. But maybe it really was a verbal slip that showed what she really thinks of people who don't have a few hundred million dollars.

MrFizzy August 16, 2012 at 2:09 pm

I was thinking bottle-blonde turd.

Preferred Customer August 16, 2012 at 10:00 am

I assume "dad" is also a hot button issue with her, given her own father's post-death-bed conversion.

Tommy1733 August 16, 2012 at 10:05 am

Tell all? What is this anecdote?

CthuNHu August 16, 2012 at 11:13 am

Ann's staunch atheist dad dies. Mitt magicks him into a Mormon.

onefunnygirl2 August 16, 2012 at 11:21 am
Jukesgrrl August 16, 2012 at 5:47 pm

Too bad we can't give extra p for good links. Come back any time you've got stuff like that.

arihaya August 16, 2012 at 10:01 am

Ann, sweetheart, trust me, you better find and read your husband Tax returns as fast as possible.

Knowing how cheap Mittens is, he probably had his secret celestial wife's spending expense filed to get him some tax deductions.

Katydid August 16, 2012 at 10:24 am

Or the sister wives…omg, I've figured it out, Mittens won't release his tax returns because it shows how many women he's married to.

chicken_thief August 16, 2012 at 11:47 am

Has he denied it? Why won't Mitt come clean on how many womenz he married? LONG FORM MARRIAGES CERTIFICATES OR GTFO, Mitt!!!

Oblios_Cap August 16, 2012 at 10:01 am

Mrs. Romney said if they release any more information, “it will only give them more ammunition.”

In regards to their finances, she said “there’s nothing we’re hiding.”

If there's nothing to hide, just release the damn things and be done with it. Ann's got the GOP logic down pat.

And no – I wouldn't hit that. No even for a grudge fuck.

PsycWench August 16, 2012 at 10:11 am

If they're 100% legit, wouldn't that take away "their" ammunition? Oh sorry, I used logic.

PubOption August 16, 2012 at 10:35 am

Best definition I have heard for grudge fuck "Someone's got it in for you".

chicken_thief August 16, 2012 at 11:52 am

She's pooped out five little whipper snappers – her JOB! over the years. That Love Canal is prolly as wide as the Mississippi at flood stage. Unless one is John Holmes or Rafalca, I doubt either one of you would know if you were fucking her or not.

paulabflat August 16, 2012 at 2:44 pm

grudge fuck. made me laugh.

Joshua Norton August 16, 2012 at 10:02 am

“there’s nothing we’re hiding.”

Except for the stuff we're hiding.

Only the little people pay taxes.

FakaktaSouth August 16, 2012 at 10:03 am

Honestly as bad as I am sure his bullshit blind trust tax info is, I don't need to see anything more. I am thoroughly disgusted quite enough by what these terrible people have shown readily and proudly.

That big old lady stroking a horse like a little girl all the time is creepy too.

Dudleydidwrong August 16, 2012 at 11:35 am

Hand jobs come in different forms, my friend.

ChillBill August 16, 2012 at 10:03 am

Clearly, she totally married Mitt for love, not money.

no_gravity August 16, 2012 at 10:15 am

And converted to Moronism when he way away in Vietnam, I mean Paris, so she could get sealed in the temple.

thatsitfortheother1 August 16, 2012 at 10:28 am

They were tough, gritty days there in 1966 in the Central Highlands of France .

no_gravity August 16, 2012 at 10:58 am

Wasn't that the tête offensive?

DahBoner August 16, 2012 at 11:49 am

No, but Mitt found their liver pate offensive…

ManchuCandidate August 16, 2012 at 10:03 am

Bullshit.

If they were "legal" then why not release them?

Katydid August 16, 2012 at 10:26 am

Has one of these co-called reporters even followed up with, "what kind of ammunition?"

anniegetyerfun August 16, 2012 at 1:22 pm

Haha, "reporters". As if.

MrFizzy August 16, 2012 at 2:10 pm

Fuck this woman is obnoxious.

fuflans August 16, 2012 at 10:28 am

yeah i think she's going to be a major problem for them. unless they get her to shut up and dress better.

Jukesgrrl August 16, 2012 at 5:50 pm

I agree. That "us" vs. "them" mentality doesn't work so well in what is essentially a job interview.

Nothingisamiss August 16, 2012 at 10:52 am

Seriously. I had no idea just how obnoxious she was untl I saw this interview. I'm surprised she didn't fire Morales on the spot after questioning her citizenship.

shelwood46 August 16, 2012 at 1:00 pm

That's Tim Pawlenty's job.

RedneckMuslin August 16, 2012 at 10:04 am

"Mrs. Romney said if they release any more information, “it will only give them more ammunition"

Well yeah ,because they are obviously tainted.

kittensdontlie August 16, 2012 at 2:55 pm

Obama confiscated all the ammo months ago, so I have no idea what she is talking about.

Texan_Bulldog August 16, 2012 at 10:04 am

Maybe all that botox wouldn't let her face move but the dame was seriously pissed. Ann is not used to the hired help talking back. I got a little scared the lightning bolts she was shooting from her eyes were going to kill Natalie.

Baconzgood August 16, 2012 at 10:04 am

Why doesn't Barry just audit him? It's not like the POTUS never used the IRS as a political tool.

elviouslyqueer August 16, 2012 at 10:05 am

But when Morales asked why she changed her mind, Mrs. Romney said, "We have a reason why we're running and it's because I believe in my heart that Mitt is going to save America, that economically we are in such difficult times and that he is the person that’s going to pull us through this."

Oh please. Spare me the whole weepy populist hard times bullshit, and go buy yourself another fucking pony, Ann.

Katydid August 16, 2012 at 10:27 am

Yeah, and I believed with all my heart my first husband would never cheat on me.

OneYieldRegular August 16, 2012 at 10:28 am

If I'm reading you correctly, you seem to be implying that we shouldn't take seriously the Romneys' hard line austerity program for our economically suffering country while they're buying show horses, installing home car elevators, and giving themselves tax cuts that might have funded jobs for laid-off public servants.

Jukesgrrl August 16, 2012 at 5:54 pm

Anyone who does should move immediately to JoePa, PA, where magical thinking has become an art form.

Dildeaux August 16, 2012 at 10:32 am

See: White Horse Prophesy

thatsitfortheother1 August 16, 2012 at 10:05 am

"These people" should be a shoe in. Why are they having to work so hard at this?

I find it rather unseemly for a former governor and man whose wealth is measured in a fraction of a billion to be slinging quite this much mud so early in the race. He's gonna get his Dockers dirty.

Mumbletypeg August 16, 2012 at 10:06 am

Once Romney's take the White House, Ann will fulfill the job creation clause tepidly as she converts the brewery to a barn. The featured pet horse of the First Family will be named Honey though, for posterity.

Barrelhse August 16, 2012 at 10:34 am

Not Honey Fitz, though.

widestanceromance August 16, 2012 at 10:42 am

You know they'd have the horses crap all over Michelle's kitchen garden, for spite.

Ruhe August 16, 2012 at 10:06 am

The conventional wisdom has been that you can't attack the rich in America because the belief that we each can ourselves become rich is too widespread in our culture, i.e, "don't tax the rich too much, I might win the powerball tomorrow." But I think the real subconscious fantasy is that we'll all someday have the chance to be the total flaming asshole out in the real world that we are in our own minds. So you can't push too hard against a rich woman who like pretty horses. Someday we might all get to stroke a pony's nose and get snippy with "you people".

WhatTheHolyHeck August 16, 2012 at 10:27 am

Rapaille proposed that the culture code for money was "proof" which his research suggested means that it doesn't matter how you got your money; if you have it, you're better, more valid, more important and more immune to criticism than people who don't have it.

montreal_bruin August 16, 2012 at 11:29 am

Back in the '80s, after being fired as St. Ronnie's chief of staff, Donald Regan nailed it with "It's okay, I've got 'fuck-you' money."

Isyaignert August 16, 2012 at 12:05 pm

Also, too, if you have lots of $$ it's because Gawd likes you and thinks you're fukkin' awesome. If you're poor, it's because you sux and Gawd hates you. It's just like Gawd making blah people blah so it's easy to identify the bad people in the world.

PubOption August 16, 2012 at 10:38 am

And they don't teach probability in fundie states, either.

zumpie August 16, 2012 at 10:58 am

Absolutely. Not to mention most fundies really DO believe that rich people got rich through ahrd work and ARE our betters (unless, of course, they're Dems).

Additionally, Steinbeck summed it up perfectly back in the depression:

"Socialism has never taken hold in American because most people don't see themselves as exploted proletariats, but as temporarily embarassed millionaires"

Isyaignert August 16, 2012 at 12:06 pm

Great Steinbeck quote – wish I could upfist you x 10.

thatsitfortheother1 August 16, 2012 at 10:07 am

And Ann's not really all that uptight. Somebody simply misplaced one of Rafalca's carrots.

Ruhe August 16, 2012 at 10:08 am

Even at 250 Mil that's not enough to buy a pony for all of us so with Mitt I guess it'll be "Freedom, Justice and a pony…for some of you…but you won't know which until November."

PsycWench August 16, 2012 at 10:10 am

"Mrs. Romney said if they release any more information, “it will only give them more ammunition.”"

To be fair, we've seen what happened to Cheney when given ammunition.

BigSkullF*ckingDog August 16, 2012 at 10:10 am

We can't show you people what you want to see, because it might give you ammunition, but we are also not hiding anything. Yeaaaaah.

FakaktaSouth August 16, 2012 at 10:21 am

This IS a terribly funny argument. We shan't show you a thing that you will be able to use against us, because there's nothing bad to say about anything we have done. And they have gotten away with this shit for 10 years. Beautiful.

James Michael Curley August 16, 2012 at 10:11 am

Stand by your man,
Tho' he may cheat on taxes
And flip flop on his vows
Stand by your man

Isyaignert August 16, 2012 at 12:09 pm

Did Mittens get busted with his wanker in a hoo-ha that wasn't Ayns? I am hearing veiled references to this, but no "hard" information yet.

James Michael Curley August 16, 2012 at 12:33 pm

Don’t know, just thinking of Tammy Wynette when it was mentioned Ann Romney was a “Coal Miner’s Daughter’. And yes I know it was Loretta Lynn but like all republicans their whine sounds the same to me.

Generation[redacted] August 16, 2012 at 10:11 am

"I can't allow you to vet me. I haven't even vetted myself!"

no_gravity August 16, 2012 at 10:16 am

They don't like vets around the horses they're selling either.

ttommyunger August 16, 2012 at 10:12 am

When asked how many total years of Returns her husband will disclose, Ann snorted loudly and pawed the dirt twice with her hoof.

eggsacklywright August 16, 2012 at 10:46 am

Where's Mr. Ed when we really need him?

ttommyunger August 16, 2012 at 10:57 am

Jukesgrrl August 16, 2012 at 6:00 pm

I have an elderly aunt who actually calls Schultz "Mr. Ed." She loves him, watches his show every night, and doesn't even realize what she's saying. I know that behavior is usually reserved for FOX viewers, but I'll take any vote Dems can get in Florida.

ttommyunger August 16, 2012 at 6:25 pm

You're lucky. Most of my kin are Rightards. I like Ed but cant watch him. Does that make sense?Sent from my iPhone

Baconzgood August 16, 2012 at 10:13 am

You know, I'm begining to suspect that Mitt's involved is some tax shenanigans he doesn't want people to know about.

UnholyMoses August 16, 2012 at 10:14 am

Oh sweet fucking Walter E. Christ …

Ann? Can I talk to you for a moment? Yeah, you.

Okay, so here's the deal. Yes, I'm one of "those people" — you know, the ones who are scared to fucking death we'll go bankrupt if there's just one more medical problem … who can't get his son's cavities fixed 'cause he doesn't have the $1,400 required to sedate an autistic kid with Tourette's … who has a car w/out AC during the worst heatwave of his lifetime, just because they can't afford even a $100/month car payment … who has seen his food and energy prices skyrocket, and the quality of our roads, bridges, and schools plummet … and who is just trying to work as hard as he can to pay off that $60K in student loan debt, maybe save a bit for the future, and cross his fingers and hope that the Free Market Fairy doesn't fuck him in the ass when all is said and done, taking away every single goddamn thing he's worked for.

So I tell ya what — you stop acting as if it's your husband's birthright to be President, and maybe get out of this cloistered little fantasy world in which you inhabit and try to LEARN about the real issues facing most of us.

Otherwise, just shut.the.holy.fuck.up about how "economically, we are in such difficult times" because you're part of the fucking problem — part of the group that's profited from "such difficult times" while millions suffer.

You have no fucking clue.

Not even a little.

Now either find out what's really going on, or go the fuck away, you stupid twunt.

Sincerely,

One Of Those People

fuflans August 16, 2012 at 10:31 am

UnholyMoses August 16, 2012 at 10:44 am

Aww, shucks … thanks.

**shoves hands in pockets, kicks at dirt**

We'll manage — we're both lucky enough to have jobs (sound of me knocking on wood goes here) so we realize there are many, many more who are hurting even worse.

Which is why I had to let that rant fly — I'm so sick and fucking tired of people who have spent most of their lives in coddled opulence acting as if they "get it."

I mean, what are the chances that Ann cleans the toilets, and irons Mitt's jeans and hair, and is on her hands and knees cleaning dog pee outta the carpet? And all while wondering if what little she's fortunate enough to have is going to be taken away due to no fault of her own?

The world would be better if these clowns stayed in their compounds, paid their fair share in taxes, and then left the rest of us the hell alone to live our lives the best we can … hopefully w/out killing each other in the process.

But I'm just a dude on the Intratubes. WTF do I know?

;-)

fuflans August 16, 2012 at 11:08 am

i don't know if i said this to you a while back (i did to someone) and you've probably already investigated this, but my dad successfully challenged a dental claim for my handicapped brother. (also has tourettes amongst other things and needed sedation). i know it was a big fight but they eventually paid. i believe he's on medicare. so for what it's worth…

AbandonHope_ August 16, 2012 at 11:33 am

Hang on… you're supposed to clean the dog pee out of the carpet?

That's what I've been doing wrong.

Jukesgrrl August 16, 2012 at 6:02 pm

If I wasn't in a similar predicament, I would buy a page on every major newspaper I could afford and publish your letter on it.

Nothingisamiss August 16, 2012 at 10:54 am

Oh God….perfect.

MrFizzy August 16, 2012 at 2:12 pm

She has had everything in the world given to her on the end of a fucking stick. There's no way she will ever understand or care about any ordinary thing. Maybe Rafalca will savage her, we can only hope.

ChessieNefercat August 16, 2012 at 2:41 pm

Rafalca can't stand her either.

Jukesgrrl August 16, 2012 at 6:03 pm

She now hates Rafalca for embarrassing her at the Olympics.

i do not know about any of this but i do know that i would rather see that sam raimi preview with the gross hag hand swallowing that kid's face than see or hear anything more from ann romney.

thank you.

Limeylizzie August 16, 2012 at 10:22 am

Where's the clip where, when asked how many years of tax returns Mittens would release, she whinnied, snorted and pawed the ground twice with her hoof?

awashinshite August 16, 2012 at 10:24 am

Gives Welsh Ponies a really bad name. This is not their fault. Plus-someone else rode that horse for her in the Olympics -she had nothing to do with the horse's skills, abilities, success. Typical – hire someone to do the real work for you -and then reap the rewards. "peel me a grape" – also.

did anyone else hear npr say this am that bill kristol was involved in the ryan pick?

really?

fucking bill kristol was involved in picking another VP after the last time he was involved in picking a VP?

what is wrong with these people?

though on the plus side, good for us i guess.

smitallica August 16, 2012 at 12:43 pm

Seriously. If Bill Kristol said day followed night, you can guarantee that the sun would explode in the middle of the night because even the universe knows that Bill Kristol is always, always, ALWAYS wrong.

We have nothing to hide, therefore we shall hide.

fartknocker August 16, 2012 at 10:33 am

This is somewhat fun to watch. Mitt is standing in the center of the media arena and ever so slowly, the journalists are peeling back all the layers and exposing exactly who Mittens is as a person and politician. I suspect that if Julian Assage makes it to Ecuador, Wikileaks may make this campaign even more interesting.

Katydid August 16, 2012 at 10:35 am

Let's give the poor woman the benefit of the doubt. I don't want to look at my own tax returns, why would she? It's too depressing.

widestanceromance August 16, 2012 at 10:37 am

She reminds me very much of the privileged women I see in a local grocery store (I live in horse country, but am not of it, of course–I rent after all), who think they can throw me shade with horse shit still on their boots while shopping (I can't take a housebroken dog in the store, yet these leather-faced hags parade right on in).

I take none of it, and make it a point to cast as cold a judgmental eye at their manure-encrusted boots as possible. I mean, get your shitty shoes OUT of the store, and try again, betch.

MrKhorlo August 16, 2012 at 10:37 am

Something the press, or Axelrod should pick up on:

Let's assume that there's really nothing worth hiding in Romney's taxes, and he only wants to keep them undercover because , as Ann Romney said, "…it will only give them more ammunition." In that case, Romney has clearly identified himself as someone who is incapable of responding to cherry-picked, out-of-context factoids. If so, he disqualifies himself from the oval office. He has no idea what he would be in for, nationally or internationally. (See: Birthirism.)

Romney: no spine, coward, yellow streak (add your own appellation…)

"Mrs. Romney said if they release any more information, “it will only give them more ammunition.”

In regards to their finances, she said “there’s nothing we’re hiding.”

Does she not even realize she contradicted her own story?

anniegetyerfun August 16, 2012 at 1:28 pm

Now, now, be fair. She's not accustomed to having to form full sentences to comprise coherent thoughts. That's usually taken care of by someone else.

thatsitfortheother1 August 16, 2012 at 10:45 am

Oh wait, he did name that post office after McGannahan Skjellyfetti, so I'm cool with that…

humanmanc August 16, 2012 at 10:54 am

What do Ann's Sister Wives have to say about Mitties tax returns? Not much as its almost impossible to speak when your mouth is gagged with an oily rag while you're chained to a radiator somewhere deep in the Mexican desert. Mmmpphhh was the only slightly legible reply.

MozakiBlocks August 16, 2012 at 10:54 am

This woman needs to shut the fuck up. What a snotty, entitled, self-centered bitch.

I did NOT need to see that stuck up bitch on my TV this morning. She can take her stiff lipped, judgmental ass and disappear back to whatever shit hole she crawled out of. If you want to hear a real first lady, check out Flotus' speech from Iowa yesterday.

An_Outhouse August 16, 2012 at 11:15 am

I don't need any more ammunition. I can get all I need down at Walmart.

Mrs. Romney said if they release any more information, “it will only give them more ammunition.”

In regards to their finances, she said “there’s nothing we’re hiding.”

Er, Ann, honey — those two statements are mutually exclusive…..

anniegetyerfun August 16, 2012 at 1:29 pm

She's familiar with the term "exclusive", but whatever is this "mutual" that you speak of? Mutual funds? Those are for the commoners!

AbandonHope_ August 16, 2012 at 11:35 am

economically we are in such difficult times

Oh, are you, Ann? Are you? Do you have to eat that pony to survive? No? Then shut the fuck up.

DaSandman August 16, 2012 at 11:37 am

It must be that itchy magic underwear that makes her such a mean twat. And that dancing horse is probably expensive glue by now for tax purposes.

DahBoner August 16, 2012 at 11:41 am

She's into dancing horses. He's into tap-dancing accountants…

Isyaignert August 16, 2012 at 11:49 am

Hey Ayn(toinette) Rmoney – You may have "blind trust" in your sociopathic husband's tax returns, but the American people don't; especially since people are learning that the Moron (oops a typo) Church tells its rubes to perfectly fine to lie if it furthers the church, their business or family.

katorigasuki August 16, 2012 at 12:16 pm

For someone who's been running for prez for 10 fucking years, you'd think they'd have a better response to the whole tax return question. you know, like, releasing the damn returns. but hey, this is cool. we can keep beating this dead horse ("Magic") all the way to November.

ChessieNefercat August 16, 2012 at 12:17 pm

If only the damned tax amnesty had come in oh say, 2004. They could have released about 7 years of returns.

But they are stuck in their tracks because the next return is 2009. Did Mitt claim the amnesty to avoid criminal prosecution? I say he did. Go ahead, Ann. Prove me wrong. They can't very well skip on over the 2009 return and release others, now can they?

ChessieNefercat August 16, 2012 at 12:25 pm

Also, too, Ann? I am getting just a little tired of you and Mitt acting as though he is the presumptive CEO of the US and we are all just his prospective employees, required to do his bidding and remember our place.

Your husband is nothing but a job applicant. And we the people will be his employers if we choose to hire him for this job. And due to its great financial responsibilities, we have every right to decide if he is likely to be sticking his hand in the company till while in our employ.

So while you are correct that you are not legally obligated to provide more tax returns, any more than a job applicant is legally obligated to provide a resume, you and your jackassy husband need to wrap your stupid heads around the idea that if you do not provide the information we are requesting, we may choose not to hire you.

Isyaignert August 16, 2012 at 1:04 pm

The Rmoneys think this is an 'effin' coronation. No lie, those fumducks actually believe they'll get their own planet to rule over when they die. Frankly, I can't wait to see those smug pukes go.

smitallica August 16, 2012 at 12:40 pm

In a follow up interview, Mrs. Romney said, "Oh, and let them eat cake."

mr bojangles August 16, 2012 at 1:16 pm

they lie about everything….rafalca is no effing purebred, he s a mangy mutt like ann!!

Nostrildamus August 16, 2012 at 1:58 pm

“You’re so pretty, Magic,” said Mrs. Romney as she fed the pony a squirming, calico kitten.
