VIDEO: Ann Romney Goes 'On the Record' About Hardships on the Campaign Trail, Women, and Mitt
Ann Romney, the wife of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, went ‘On the Record.’ Four years ago Mrs. Romney made a video in which she said, “Mitt, this is for you, sweetheart. I’m never going to do this again.” She recalled her husband quipping back, “Ann, you say that after every pregnancy.”
Tonight, she told Greta Van Susteren that it’s hard to see someone she loves being beaten up on the campaign trail. While she said she’d never do it again, Romney maintained, “I am as committed as a person can be right now because I, along with so many other Americans, recognize what an important election this is.”
The biggest difference she noticed this time around has been that women are focused on
jobs and deficit spending. Romney said, “More women are falling into poverty than men under this economy. So we’re seeing, if you can even call it a recovery, a jobless recovery.” She added that the way to help people who have been left behind is by creating jobs and opportunity for them.
Romney said her role is to be a character witness for her husband, so voters will know that he is a “good and decent person, who I’ve seen throughout our years of marriage, always caring for others and being there for others.” She continued, “He’s not the guy that talks about things, he’s the guy that goes out and does things.”
