Uber Rich, Privileged White Lady Ann Romney Sets Us People Straight on Taxes Issue


Here is an actual quote from Mrs. RMoney:

We’ve given all you people need to know and understand about our financial situation and how we live our life

She said this on national teevee and you can listen to her say it over at TPM.

This is the same Mrs. RMoney who said that she just totally loves how some working moms with much less privilege have no choice but to go out into the big wide world and earn a paycheck so the mortgage can be paid on their quaint little underwater houses no doubt.  So cute!

So can someone please explain to me why Willard’s campaign thinks this clueless person, who whines that she’s being picked on because someone made a political ad with a dressage horse in it and dressage horses are so totally off limits because, you know, THERAPY, is an effective spokesperson for the campaign and will make regular middle classies and poors just love King Mittster?

Because I am not getting it at all.

SOMEWHAT RELATED:  Josh Marshall notes that Willard & Co did not release a complete copy of his 2010 return as he says he did because the FBAR form is missing.  This form is used to report bank accounts and other financial investments that are held in jurisdictions outside the U.S. and is a required form if your total investments in these accounts exceed $10,000.  The Romneys’ lawyer and trustee, the ever more interesting Brad Malt, confirms that the FBARs were filed for 2010 so why haven’t they been released?  Josh has some interesting speculations.

Rmoney’s FBAR’s are about to make his campaign all FUBAR, which is rather hard to do considered what a mess it is already.  Heh. 

If Sainted Mother of the Five Noncom’s uses her fancy dancy horses for THERAPY, shouldn’t she be the one who is actually, you know, RIDING THEM?

Crap, TPM used a FUBAR lead, thus rendering my comment painfully derivative.  I swear I didn’t go to TPM before I wrote that!

You have to excuse Mrs Rmoney. She can’t hear us over the sound of her privilege.

Invest in popcorn futures, comrades!

I live in Canada and I’m still a US citizen.Here’s the IRS requirement:

U.S. persons are required to file a Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts (FBAR) each year if they have a financial interest in or signature authority over financial accounts, including bank, securities or other types of financial accounts, in a foreign country, if the aggregate value of these financial accounts exceeds $10,000 at any time during the calendar year.

Mr B and I are freelance writers and money tends to be feast or famine so even we inkstained wretches will at some point have more than $10,000 in a combo of accounts.

I dare say the Romneys don’t even have to add theirs up.

I think the Romney campaign believes that Ann is a good surrogate for Mitt because she looks like a nice, respectable white lady who will appeal to Middle Americans who pine for a June Cleaver type mother figure.  The only problem is that she sounds like a mash-up of Leona Helmsley and Marie Antoinette.  Like I’ve said before, I think Mitt’s “secret weapon” is going to go off in his magic underpants.

I think Mitt’s “secret weapon” is going to go off in his magic underpants.

If he wears the Batmans, would Rush refuse to talk about him?

Contrast with PBO’s father in law.  Who also had MS.  Who went to work everyday, using two canes to walk.

Miss Ann and the rest of the Rmoney campaign keep saying, We can’t let you look at the tax returns or you’ll find something in there and we won’t tell you what it is.  Kinda’ seems like taunting at this point.

Good question from the teevee: If the horsey wins the Gold, is that a good thing or a bad thing for Rmoney?
