Ann Romney claims to be just like any other working mother in this country. Did you know every other working mother has the privilege of owning an Olympic-bound dressage horse? Clearly, Mrs. Romney is out of touch with the majority of working mothers in the United States. Ann went on the radio to gush about how proud she was of her horse Rafalca like she had something to do with his Olympic bid. Sorry but all she does is own the horse. Which means she pays for all his care and training but it won't be Mrs. Romney on the back of the horse in London. Nope; a person with a real job will be working hard to fight for a gold medal with the horse, but the Romneys will surely be celebrating in high style.
It is bad enough that dressage gets poo-poo'd as a fake sport that does not deserve a spot in the Olympics, now the Romney's have to bring their political stain to a prestigious sport. While Rafalca deserves the praise for his hard work, Ann Romney should probably stay far away. The Romneys attract so many hecklers they may just spook the poor horse.
At least Ann had one positive thing to say during her interview. When asked whether the Romneys would take as many vacations as the Obama's she said she doubted it. She then went on to say they will just continue to vacation the way they do now at one of their two vacation homes with the children and grandchildren. While that sounds all well and fine it still drips of privilege and reiterates just how far different Ann is than a normal working mother. Maybe there wasn't a lick of positive in that interview after all.
