Honestly, I'm fine with that statement. I'm a snob too - unfortunately, just not a rich one.

This is the whole quote

“I love the fact that there are women out there who don’t have a choice and they must go to work and they still have to raise the kids. Thank goodness that we value those people too. And sometimes life isn’t easy for any of us.”

I think her choice of words was retarded.

I think I understand what she is trying to say. She should have word it differently.

This statement made Romney lose 100 points in my book lol.

I see how well she speaks as it's quite clear from what she said last night.  What she said earlier was misconstrued by the MSM - which doesn't surprise me.  Ann Romney will make a great First Lady.

That's your opinion but I disagree. She is not relatable. Yes was a SAHM like some Moms in here but she was a rich SAHM. Different obstacles.

My mom was never rich.  She was married to a middle class guy when she raised me and my siblings.  She was a SAHM mom because she thought it was best to raise children rather than work full-time.  So, as you can see, not everyone that has money can stay home.

Exactly. Which makes my point of Ann Romney not being relatable.

Take away her wealth and she's still not relatable?  Not trying to start a fight at all, I just don't get the difference in what she was able to do and what my mom was able to do.

That's like comparing a rich African American and a poor African American. The poor African American would be more relatable in the black community. Similar obstacles.

YOU CAN'T TAKE AWAY HER WEALTH. That is who she is. Sorry I can't relate to a married rich SAHM. I'm currently a SAHM. The main difference is money issues. Did her kids go to public school? Was she part of PTA?
