Ann Romney accuses Obama of showing 'poor sportsmanship'
Mitt Romney's wife, Ann, equated President Obama's campaign to a petulant child during an interview Tuesday after being asked about charges from the president's campaign that her husband had "lied" during last week's debate.
“I mean, lied about what? This is something he’s been saying all along. This is what he believes. This is his policy, these are his statements," Ann Romney said in an interview set to air Wednesday on Fox News. "I mean, lie — it’s sort of like someone that’s, you know, in the sandbox that like lost the game and they’re just going to kick sand in someone’s face and say, ‘you liar.’ I mean, it’s like they lost, and so now they just are going to say, OK, the game, we didn’t like the game. So to me, it’s poor sportsmanship.”
In an interview Sunday with CBS News, Obama adviser David Axelrod said Romney's debate positions were "uprooted" from what he had said on the campaign trail.
"I think [the president] was a little taken aback at the brazenness with which Gov. Romney walked away from so many of the positions on which he's run, walked away from his record,” Axelrod said.
Ann Romney said she "knew right away" that her husband was winning the first presidential debate.
"I knew after the first question," she said. "I turned to my son after 50 minutes, and I gave him a nudge, and I said it’s 100 to zero right now. "
She added that she hoped his performance would attract the support of more female voters, a crucial demographic headed into Election Day and one that the president has thus far dominated.
"I had been waiting for a very, very long time for people to see my husband how I see him. And I think that people got a chance to do that at the debate," Ann Romney said.
She also said her husband would respond "with clarity and firmness" if pressed in the second debate about his secretly recorded "47 percent" comment, which resurfaced Tuesday in an attack ad from the Obama campaign.
Ann Romney also said she didn't have advice for Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) ahead of his debate Thursday against Vice President Biden, but that she and her husband had "all the confidence in Paul."
"I’m excited again for the American people to see him," she said. "They don’t know him. He is such a great guy. He’s so genuine, he’s so earnest, he’s so well-spoken, he’s so intelligent. He knows his facts. I mean, it’s going to be great for people to really get a chance to get to know him better.”
Does she realize how absurd she comes across to people?
And if anyone know sportsmanship, it's Ms Ann Romney!!
She is a hideous old harpee.
Did she chastise her husband for bullying an elderly man during the debates?
Hey Ann --
I know you're a convert to your husband's religion but look, Mormon women are expected to be seen and not heard, like children.
Got it, hon? Good.
Now here's a few Paxils, they'll fix you right up, dearie.
I hope she's trotted out daily from now until November, the bitch.
Lied about what?
Romney lied saying that pre-existing conditions were covered in his "new" health care plan. They're not.
Romney lied about giving the middle class a 20 percent tax cut, then he took it back.
Romney lied on his 2002 tax return saying he was a resident of Utah. Then he revised his tax returns claiming to be a Massachusetts resident when he got caught.
Romney is lying about Medicare and the $716 billion that he takes out of it.
Romney is lying when he says Medicare will not change when he wants it to become a voucher plan.
Should I go on?
Two sociopaths. The ease with which they tell easily-reftued lies is stunning.
[quote]I mean, lied about what?
The list is literally too long to post here. And yes, the brazenness with which they both lie is amazing.
I don't remember Michelle Obama attacking John McCain or Mitt Romney. But both Cindy McCain and Ann Romney attacked President Barack Obama.
Gee, I wonder which party's ticket will win on Election Day!
She's a total idiot.
"I don't remember Michelle Obama attacking John McCain or Mitt Romney. But both Cindy McCain and Ann Romney attacked President Barack Obama."
First, the GOP is a pathologically angry group of people.
Second, if Michelle Obama did the same thing, she be branded as an "angry Black woman."
"I had been waiting for a very, very long time for people to see my husband how I see him."
Lord, how many times has she said this?
Oh people, I can't keep up with all of Mitt's flip-flops, so I just pretend they aren't there.
Ann Romney, practicing smiling
She's a cunting liar
Ann Romney is so cunty and dishonest herself that she refuses to acknowledge that she and her husband are liars.
Sending your spouse out to defend your honor should do wonders with the castrated husband voting bloc.
She means she has been waiting a long, long time for undecided voters to drink the Romney peanut punch. Koolaid is for the 47% who don't count. Michelle had already been typecast as the angry black woman during the 2008 campaign. A misperception that she has overcome admirably by word and deed. Anne Romney is taking on the Hillary role in her husband's campaign. It seems to be serving him well. Obama, on the other hand, looks isolated and depressed. I don't think he wants to be President anymore.
Ann you cunt, you want lies? I give you jsut a considerable portion of Mitt Romney's lies:
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
The old site will remain around on http://legacy.datalounge.com while things settle down but will go away fairly soon as we consolidate everything to the one "official" site.
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
