(VIDEO) Ann Romney: Biggest Fear Is For Mitt’s ‘Mental Well-Being’ This Is A Huge Story


imageAs reported by Reuters, Ann Romney’s says her biggest concern about Mitt Romney winning the presidency is his Mental Well-Being. I am sure Ann Romney was tired and that if she knew the implication of such an answer she would not have made it.

That said I think while tired and mentally vulnerable she was able to articulate what many see throughout this campaign. Mitt Romney is not a mentally strong person. Many talk about him not having a core. Many talk about him flip-flopping. He has even taken different positions several hours apart as he has done when supporting healthcare and excoriating it a few hours later. His current positions are diametrically opposed to what they were in his last political career.

Here is Ann Romney’s statement.

As reported by Reuters

In an interview Thursday with television station KTVN, Mrs. Romney was asked what her biggest worry was should Mitt Romney be elected to serve in the White House.

"I think my biggest concern obviously would just be for his mental well-being," she said. "I have all the confidence in the world in his ability, in his decisiveness, in his leadership skills, in his understanding of the economy. … So for me I think it would just be the emotional part of it."

Ann Romney knows her husband best. It is likely this sentiment comes from what she has lived with.  Giving how quickly others are able to change Mitt Romney’s values and mind, this revelation should give Americans serious doubt about his fitness both mentally and  emotionally to be president.

We all know the cliché of the president having the finger on the button. We all know that a weak minded president can be made to do things he otherwise would not; like starting wars on false pretenses for ideological reasons or to maximize the portfolio of the military industrial complex.

Why is the mainstream media not covering this? If it were Michelle Obama making such a statement Fox News, CNN, ABC, CBS, and NBC would be all over it.  Everyone should be sending emails and tweets to these networks asking why it is they are not doing their job. Is this the Corporate Media instigating the semblance of a close election to steal one for the Plutocracy? Makes one wonder.

  1. If she thinks campaigning is rough, she hasn’t seen anything yet!

  2. This woman is soooooooooooo annoying!

  3. Come on, seriously? She’d have to be crazy NOT to worry. Let’s get real: Trotting out stuff like this does no good for the Obama camp. I mean, look at how fast these guys turn grey. I’m a big fan of Obama as president, but this is just not a valid line of attack.

    • I would normally agree with you. Maybe watching news 24/7 has warped my mind but before her making that comment I was stating that that he had a pathological mental problem based on the “manner” in which he switches ideologies within a single conversation as well as his incoherence.

  4. Mary Kate Dannaher says:

    There’s no smoking gun here, I think her comments were just to say that he would be under stress. If he wasn’t, I’d be worried. He doesn’t have what it takes to be president and I’m more worried about who is pulling his strings than anything he might promise to do. But these particular comments say nothing about his mental state, so much as they say that she cares about him. I’d expect no less. Now, let her care about him as he writes his memoirs and they go off into the sunset as our President gets 4 more years.

  5. C’mon now. I am an ardent Obama supporter, but this is some bs. Her statement was totally innocous. When we start highlighting nonsense like this, we are sinking to the level of Fox News and the Republicans, and that is very distasteful. Keep to the real stuff.

    • Jay I want to respond in two ways. The ethical response is: I would normally agree with you. That said that a wife would say that in a well coached election does give me pause. I do not use that kind of wording when being concerned about my wife. Those are not the words that would immediately come off the tongue when asked about concerns about a presidential candidate.

      The political answer: Many times as liberals we are very “to the fact” and “high minded”. I read the book “The Political Brain” and realized that to win elections it takes more than that. Inasmuch as our values are the correct ones, we lose because we do not understand that most people need more than our “high mindedness” but personalization and sadly “carnalization”.

  6. This really frightens me. If Mitt Romney is elected, which I seriously hope does not happen, we as a Country will have a mental defective in the White House. Those of us who are following the campaign have to wonder why the mainstream media is not covering this. I’m sending an email to CNN and others. Hoping more will do the same.

  7. Nancy Pennington says:

    I think she was trying to convey that he is “emotional” – which he’s not. He’s a cold-hearted, unfeeling SOB.

  8. Yet another example of Dems grasping at straws. I think any wife would be concerned for her husband if the weight of the world were on his shoulders.

    If Mitt is mentally unfit, what does that say about the POTUS who got skewered in the debate last night? Mitt proved to be more competent and commanding than he.
