On September 28, in Reno, NV, CBS News reported that Mrs. Romney said, “You know, I think my biggest concern, obviously, would just be for his mental well-being. I have all the confidence in the world in his ability, in his decisiveness and his leadership skills, in his understanding of the economy, in his understanding of what’s missing right now in the economy – you know, pieces that are missing to get this jumpstarted, she continued. “So for me I think it would just be the emotional part of it.”
When I read her remarks, two questions came to mind: (1) Does she know something about her husband that the electorate needed to know?; (2) Why did not President Obama’s campaign staff make an issue of her comments? If Michelle Obama had made exactly the same comment about President Obama, Fox, CNN, Rush, Sean, Laura, Ann, Drudge, Krauthammer, Rove, Beck, O’Riley, Palin, David, Pat, Morning Joe, CNBC and the rest of that vile and odious pack would still be trying to make hay. Yet, other than the brief mention on CBS news that evening, I never heard mention of Mrs. Romney’s comment.
Then another thought came to me: Who owns the media??
Two links follow. The first is a link to the CBS Report of Mrs. Romney’s comment.
The second is a link to a picture of a rather disheveled and unkempt Mr. Romney (formerly referred to as “Governor” by the media, or “The Candidate”) purportedly pumping his own gas after the Secret Service detail returned to other duties.
