Charity Cases

Charity Cases

Mitt Romney’s wife Ann was recently dispatched by her husband’s Presidential campaign to combat perceptions of a GOP “War on Women,” which arose after attempts by Republican legislators (on both State and Federal levels) to limit access to birth control, cut funding for women’s health, reverse decades-old abortion rights, and invade women’s bodies. The motives behind all these efforts were brought into plain focus by professional loudmouth Rush Limbaugh’s branding of Sandra Fluke with a Scarlet Letter back in March.

Ann and Mitt were made for each other (as their serial numbers would surely indicate). Much like when her husband tried to connect with the common man by referring to himself as unemployed and mentioning that some of his best friends own NASCAR teams, Ann tried to connect with the common woman by pointing out how she understood the plight of poor, working mothers in America, because I guess Mitt wouldn’t let her hire illegal immigrants to take care of the family’s laundry.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to raise five boys and dressage horses on a family income of only a quarter of a billion dollars? No?? Well then DON’T SCOFF Ann Romney’s choice to be a “stay-at-homes” mom!!

I don’t like Romney, and I hope Obama wipes the floor with him during the election.

That said, while I agree that his efforts to “relate” to people are worthy of ridicule, are we holding being rich against them? Devil’s advocate: what if someone is the best choice to run the country and is also incredibly wealthy? Does a person like that stand a chance of winning an election? How should someone as rich as Romney act during the campaign in order to be both rich and likeable?

Well, he could start by not suggesting that he needs a bigger tax cut.

I’d say it’s just a statement that if you’re rich, don’t pretend you’re just “your average Joe.” There’s nothing inherently wrong with being rich (though I’d say in many cases, how people get rich IS wrong, but that’s a separate discussion). Just as there’s nothing wrong with going to Harvard, Yale, etc. Just, don’t pretend you’re still a common man, just struggling to get by. If you own multiple houses, don’t pretend a tax increase on your home is as bad as the family struggling with a mortgage on a single home.
