And if you listen carefully, you’ll hear the women sighing a little bit more than the men. It’s how it is, isn’t it? It’s the moms who always have to work a little harder, to make everything right. It’s the moms of this nation — single, married, widowed — who really hold this country together. We’re the mothers, we’re the wives, we’re the grandmothers, we’re the big sisters, we’re the little sisters, we’re the daughters. You know it’s true, don’t you? You’re the ones who always have to do a little more. You know what it’s like to work a little harder during the day to earn the respect you deserve at work and then come home to help with that book report which just has to be done. You know what those late night phone calls with an elderly parent are like and the long weekend drives just to see how they’re doing. You know the fastest route to the local emergency room and which doctors actually answer the phone when you call at night. You know what it’s like to sit in that graduation ceremony and wonder how it was that so many long days turned into years that went by so quickly. You are the best of America. You are the hope of America. There would not be an America without you. Tonight, we salute you and sing your praises. I’m not sure if men really understand this, but I don’t think there’s a woman in America who really expects her life to be easy. In our own ways, we all know better!
We’re too smart to know there aren’t easy answers. But we’re not dumb enough to accept that there aren’t better answers.It was Mrs. Romney's first speech delivered using a teleprompter. Normally, she doesn't even use a printed speech at a podium - her method of "keeping it real", as she told the women in attendance for the Women for Romney breakfast Wednesday morning. Why do the lapdog media for the Obama re-election efforts dislike Mitt Romney and his wife, Ann, so intensely that a Yahoo News bureau chief lost his job Wednesday after making a viciously snide remark into an open mic during her speech? I think it is because the Romney's are a natural, genuine, and relatable couple, despite their enormous wealth and privilege. It is easy for women to respond favorably to Ann Romney - who is the first to say hers is not a fairy tale marriage. She said that fairy tales don't have chapters including breast cancer and M.S. diagnoses in them.
Ann Romney is the real deal. All the vitriol and ugly campaigning against her, as a Republican woman, is proof to me that the hideous leftists know this and are scared of her effectiveness as the candidate's wife. I like that.
