Ann Romney Finally Admits the Obvious: “We Have Not Had a Financial Struggle in Our Lives”

The Progressive Change Campaign Committee is charging Ann Romney with lying, contrasting her comments on “Meet the Press” with previous comments.
In a provocative email to PCCC supporters, the group seizes on an apparent gap between what Ann Romney said to David Gregory and her speech at the Republican National Convention: “This is a far cry from the Republican convention claim that she and Mitt Romney ‘ate a lot of pasta and tuna fish’ to get by. Most important, it has the potential to show voters that as Mitt Romney proposes cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and student loans, he is out-of-touch with the challenges working families face.”
None of this says that it is necessarily “bad” to be wealthy, but it is 1) bad to mislead the public and 2) bad to be devoid of empathy. We’ve all known for quite some time that Romney was born into wealth, so it is curious as to why Ann Romney would even begin a discussion about eating tuna fish to get by. That really just underestimates the intelligence of voters.
What many political observers can’t understand is why the Romneys just can’t tell everyone who they are and exactly what they believe. What Ann and Mitt Romney seem to be missing is authenticity.
