    There is a marked difference in the relationships between Mitt and Ann as opposed to Bill and Hillary. Some liberals find the comparison downright irritating.

    Why do people keep criticizing Mitt for the family he was born into, and his upbringing. He didn't have a choice...did you? But regardless of being born into an accomplished family that valued public and community service, Mitt is a genuinely nice person: a dedicated and faithful husband, father, church-goer, business leader, and public servant.

    He may not have had the same financial struggles as other "regular folk" have had, but his family has been touched by a debilitating disease -- Ann's Multiple Sclerosis. MS (and other diseases) doesn't care if you're rich or poor. It humbles everyone and teaches patience, compassion, faith, hope, and endurance. I know of men who have left their wheelchair-bound wives with MS. Mitt and Ann are a team and are facing this challenge together, just like other "regular folk" in America.

    Mitt is successful and wealthy because he believes in America's fundamental and underlying promise, that anyone who works hard and has a vision can achieve great things. This is the America that I believe in, which is why I'm voting for Romney.

    No matter how you say it, the candidate is only as good as the spouse next to them.

    Ann Romney seems like a sweet woman, and I would love to get to know her better.

    nothing to write. jonny jr. said she is the best person he has met in the last 28 years and ricky said he is bringing the most beautiful woman with him to the WH. Enough said.

    So, is DN going to write a piece about Jon Huntsman or Rick Perry's wife next? Or should we just add this to the "promoting Romney" weekly pile of articles?

    Behind every good man is a great woman! Mitt and Ann are a loving couple who balance and compliment each other. Together they are the whole package deal exemplifying the values that Americans trust and love. As President and First Lady they will do an outstanding job in representing the U.S.A. in the White House and abroad!

    If you pulled this on Cains Wife you would be considered a Raceist. My little Aunt with the Do-Rag (spelling correct but others exist also correct) on her head would turn over in her grave.

    I had some Pancakes the other day, had Mac Nuts in them, Mac Nuts Cost a Dollar more but are worth it.Also egg sun shine up. Gets ohos and aghs and inaine comments from the Tourists. Korean Cook, Local Kine Grinds in Waianae. No Extra Pig this time so the ticket was just $5.50 plus the tip.

    I wish Mitt well, he is a good man and has a nice family. Remember who he is and who his Grandfather was, hard to be a regular guy, your regular guy stuff is all dry cleaned and pressed, Creases in your Blue Jeans etc. Also there are people in Suits all around you taking pictures of you being regular.

    One of the reasons i tend to lead towards Perry. i don do not think Mitt is or ever has been a regular guy, Mormon or other wise. I think he trys and he get points for that. What he is a Great Business man and Manager, Remember L.A. and for sure remember the the Mess that was almost Slat lake.

    He did not do enough to Stop Abortion in Mass while Gov but let God nd him figure that one out. i do believe his june 1978 moment as I has much the same moment but in Phoenix. Where i was when John, Died (engraved) and where i was when Elvis Died and where i was when Dec 2 was announced thos 3 things I remember plus April 6, 1988.

    I also do not want the last couple to get things done in the White House to be the Obamas.

    Another incident of a lotof ink spent on a non issue.

    There is nothing wrong with defering to your husband. All good Mormon men know that with out the support of the wifes their would be far less accomplished and the show just might not go on.

    We just had a Womens Conference and my Wife tells me that Women where highly honored at the conference as they are in real life. My kids are grown now so i do not have to watch them but i always willingly moved things around so i could so my wife could go to womens conference without worrying.

    3 of the 4 where easy to handle, the 4th was not going to mind wheather anyone was there or not. Often he was out of the the house and in a program, so it was just the three.

    The Women that an RM get married to is perhaps the most vital decision of his life. Same goes for a Women RM. Often you will find them Yoked Togeather besy raising kid and still doing the work. Where there is a strong Mormon Man there is almost always a strong Mormon Women.

    What a "feels good, sounds good", sweet "fluff" story, quick hand me a box of tissues, I'm about to cry, like Glenn Beck does. "Republican presidential candidate was not alone in cooking attire one recent morning as hundreds of potential supporters lined up for free pancakes. "WAIT A MINUTE, that's" socialism, there's no free lunch out there for the middleclass, that's a entitlement. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and his wife Ann serve pancakes during a Labor Day pancake breakfast. The Koch brothers' father, Fred, was among the select group chosen to serve on the Birch Society's top governing body. In a recorded 1963 speech that survives in a University of Michigan archive, he can be heard warning of "a takeover" of America in which Communists would "infiltrate the highest offices of government in the U.S. until the president is a Communist, unknown to the rest of us." That rant could be delivered as is at any Tea Party rally today. The other major sponsor of the Tea Party movement is Dick Armeys FreedomWorks, which, like Americans for Prosperity, is promoting events, not GOP jobs. WHERE'S THE JOBS?. We want to know.

    Like it or not, my views.
