Ann Romney's 'You People' Remark Makes Americans Angry as Hell (VIDEO)

ann romney on good morning americaToday's poll numbers may show presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney and President Obama in a dead heat, but an unnerving new remark from Camp Romney -- courtesy of none other than Ann Romney -- could tip the scale in the POTUS's favor. Sitting down to chat with ABC's Robin Roberts on Good Morning America in an interview airing today, Mrs. Romney addressed concerns surrounding the tax returns her husband has refused to release. Although President Obama released his for the past seven years, while the Bushes offered up ten to twelve years' worth, the Romneys contend that two years is adequate. 

Ann defended the move, curtly noting, "We've given all you people need to know and understand about our financial situation and about how -- you know, how we live our life." Wow, condescending much, Mrs. Romney?

These few poorly chosen words strung together equal one HUGE red flag. A major indicator of how out of touch the Romneys are and how they see us, the American people. Sure she could have been referring specifically to the media since she was speaking directly to a newswoman, but what is the media other than a messenger of information for us the American people? Ultimately, it's the VOTERS who want to see these tax returns.

And judging from Ann Romney's remark, it sounds like the Romneys' attitude is basically, "We're above this demand. We don't want to share anymore about how insanely rich we are. Now back off, you little pee-on trolls!" What's truly terrifying: If Mitt's acting like he should be exempt from taking action the public is asking for, how can we expect him to have our best interests at heart as President? I shudder at the thought.

Romney had explained (very poorly) that the real reason she and Mitt aren't releasing more tax returns has to do with guarding themselves against "more attack." Her exact quote:

There are so many things that will be open again for more attack. And you just want to give more material for more attack. And that’s really -- that’s just the answer.

So ... wait -- let's get this straight -- their unreleased tax returns are entirely honorable, yet releasing them to the public will set them up for further attacks? Oookay. So not only are the Romneys condescending, they're uber-defensive! Grrreat. Because those are precisely the qualities we want in our President and his family.

Here's the clip of Ann's interview if you missed it ...

 

Are you turned off by Ann Romney's remarks?

YOU PEOPLE = serfs, lesser thans, unequals


Jeez YOU PEOPLE, don't you know it's "their turn" at the presidency?  Besides, it's been on Mitt's bucket list forever and he wants to check that off already.

Ultimately, it's liberals that want to see Romney's tax returns. Because we certainly wouldn't want a president who understands economics and has been successful, would we? Nah. Things are going SOOOO well now. What's unemployment, now? Almost 9%?

I think it's a stretch and smacks of desperation to take that line "you people" out of context and apply it to "you lower class americans". C'mon. She was talking to a news reporter, she meant the newspeople.

What if she had replaced the word "you" with the word "the"? Would that be any less "offensive"? My two cents...you're grasping at straws.

You know what offends me? Your ignorance and idiocy. Also, stop using abbreviations like POTUS FLOTUS SCOTUS. You don't need any more help sounding like a fool.
