Ann Romney Insists Mitt Doesn’t Disdain the Poor


It lacks the broad appeal of Romney-Ryan's slogan Believe in America, but Mitt Doesn't Disdain Poor People is the pitch Ann Romney was forced to make Tuesday in an interview with a Denver FOX affiliate. After some niceties about campaigning, FOX31 reporter Eli Stokols asked Ann about the 47 percent comments Mitt made in the leaked video that blew up yesterday. "It's unfortunate when something gets misinterpreted like this, or it's taken out of context," Ann says of Mitt's comments about government-dependent Obama supporters who believe they are victims. "If you really do listen to everything that he does say, he's talking about what we're facing in America right now. We're facing some really difficult situations. And if we don't take corrective measures soon, that more and more people will become dependent on government. And that is not what we want." To be sure, Stokols asks, "So he wasn't expressing any disdain for people who are poor or who are on entitlement programs at this point?" Absolutely not, she says. See folks? Just move right along now, nothing to see in that video.
