Breaking News – Ann Romney Says Husband Has Deeply Principled Side No One Ever Sees In Public

Ann Romney, wife of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, said Monday that despite her husband’s public image as a shameless opportunist with no convictions whatsoever, in private he displays a rare principled side that most people never get to see.

In a casual conversation with reporters at the couple’s oceanfront home in California, Romney said her husband’s many months on the campaign trail had caused some voters to develop a distorted view of her longtime partner, who she said actually possesses numerous core beliefs and ethical values when relaxing in the company of close friends and family.

Sure, on TV, Mitt might seem like a shameless opportunist who stands for absolutely nothing, but at home he’s actually just an ordinary guy with a decent sense of morality,” Romney said of her partner of 43 years. “I’ve known this man almost my whole life, and I can tell you that, off camera, there are just so many things he cares about in a completely non-politically-motivated way.”

“I realize in debates and interviews he comes off as this completely amoral corporatist who couldn’t be more out of touch with average Americans — heck, sometimes even I roll my eyes,” Romney continued with a chuckle. “But when he’s out of the spotlight and just hanging out with me or his grandkids, enjoying the weekend, you’d be amazed. To us, he’s just regular old person-with-genuine-moral-convictions Mitt.”

“Quote of the Day”

Via: The Economic Times

Retirement ages will have to move to 70, 80 years old,” Benmosche, who turned 68 last week, said during a weekend interview at his seaside villa in Dubrovnik, Croatia. (see photo)

 “That would make pensions, medical services more affordable. They will keep people working longer and will take that burden off of the youth.”

“Of course the youth will never get an opportunity to work; but hey, tough shit.”, he didn’t add.

– Robert Benmosche, CEO, AIG
