Washington Post: "By all accounts, the past month has been most difficult on Romney's wife, Ann, who friends said believed up until the end that ascending to the White House was their destiny. They said she has been crying in private and trying to get back to riding her horses."
Note to other GOPers:The Dems play for keeps. Now instead of living a 100% carefree life like they had prior to Nov 6, now they'll live with an uncomfortable reality that they lost the election, lost big, and lost due to incompetence.
My suggestion: try doing something for other people, rather than trying to amuse yourself in a dream world of dancing horses.
I doubt Mrs. R reads this, but I also suggest trying herbal remedies for MS. I've heard it can work wonders.
So is doing things for others covered under spending 4 million for a Christmas vacation and on 54 Christmas trees in the white house? The only thing the Obama's have done for others is to spend their money. At what point will you admit your guy is a kooky Christian?
Obama is a piker. W. was the most expensive vacation president in US history. Not only did Bush spend more days on vacation than any other president, but he used Air Force One more often while on vacation than any other president.
During Bush’s two terms, the cost of operating Air Force One ranged from $56,800 to $68,000 an hour. Bush used Air Force One 77 times to go to his ranch in Crawford, TX. Using the low end cost of $56,800, Media Matters calculated that each trip to Crawford cost taxpayers $259,687 each time, and $20 million total for Bush’s ranch flights.
If cost of the flight was the only expense involved to taxpayers Bush’s vacations would still seem rather economical, but there is more, much more. Unlike the Obama’s $4 million Christmas vacation price tag, which includes the cost of everything from transportation to accommodations for the First Family, the White House staff, and the White House press corps, Bush’s numbers only include the cost of flying the president to Crawford. The cost of transporting and accommodating staff, media, friends and family is not included in Bush’s vacation numbers.
In response to growing criticism that the president was on vacation too much, the Bush administration adopted the Rovian tactic of scheduling, “work events,” while the president was in Crawford so that they could claim that President Bush’s vacations were working vacations. During his infamous pre-9/11 August vacation, the AP reported that, “Using the ranch as a base, he will promote White House initiatives in Rocky Mountain National Park, Denver, Albuquerque, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh and San Antonio.”
And the Romenys did everything they needed to, to become elected. It's so unfair!
As Ann put it: “We’ve given all you people need to know and understand about our financial situation and how we live our life."
